V14p57 Daily Rain Graph Reports Incorrect Totals (CLOSED)
« on: February 02, 2009, 06:28:01 PM »
The DailyRain tag used for this graoph is incorrectly reporting daily totals.  ''Plot Previous'' is 168hrs.  Jan28 dailyyrain was .38'', Feb2 was .37''.  The graph plot should indicate .38''.  If I shorten plot prev to 116hrs, it changes to the correct value of .38''.

It is working as it is supposed too, so to speak.  The graphs can not plot all the data in the size you show above, so it removes some of the data to be able to fit the graphic in the window provided.  Sometimes this may even include your daily highs or lows such as in windspeed or temp.  I have seen this happen in version 13 as well.

If you enlarge the graphs window or reduce the "Plot previous time" more of the data will again show up, because there is less data to display or more space to spread the data out across the window.

That happens when I reduce to 116hrs from 168hrs, however, since all the gr5aphs originally default to 120hrs, it should at least plot 5days.  I will fiddle with an alternate display size and see.  Thanks for the work around Sam.
