You have a text file saved on the PC, that's all you need.

It won't look right in the editor but the format is right in the post. I've edited the css file so it shows all the text and you don't have to scroll.

You might have to do a hard reset on your browser to show it - Ctrl + F5

Thanks,

Scroll box is good,... :)

You have a text file saved on the PC, that's all you need


And therein lies the problem,... :D

You don't need to search for the files.

On the track PC go to the 'SETUP' tab in the software.

There's a button that will open a file manager window at the location where the files are being saved. Files are very small and are quick to copy so just grab the whole directory.
Cheers,

You'll have to include an "Email to" button in the 'Set-up' section, with the next Software Update !!,.. :lol: :lol: :lol:

You know,... what's that 'function' that can send a 'notification' of an 'Event', automatically ???,.. I can't think of the Name,..

I had considered trying the "code" tag, just hadn't yet gotten around to it.

Seems to work well,.. :D


I think the code tags have been in HTML since the very beginning. Those CERN guys needed a way to display their programs and reports (text files).

Hi Garry,

Long time no talk :shock: How's it going?

What's the issue with the original race report text file? TABS or some other embedded characters?

Is James race control on a wireless network?

Greg

Hey Hi Greg,.. I think you'll find the Origins of "Hypetext/Hyper-linking", started Before it's implementation/use by the guys at CERN. ;) :D

I Don't think there Is ANY Issue per-se with the Race Report .txt files, as can be seen by this Example from the OLD Amiga based JRS System.

This all Started by trying to 'Format' Written Text either Pre written/formatted in another App' or from within the 'post' itself.
Which because of the 'Font' causes it's Own problems re-Spacing,.. cured as in the Above and Your 'initial' example of using the 'Code' Tag, by it's use of Mono-Spaced Text.

Like I said, I was simply trying out the various (included) options to see what/how they both functioned and the resulting Output etc,.. :D

EDIT:
Hmm,.. interesting!?,.. initially, the Race Report sheet was 'presented' inside a Scrollable Box, which is/was Good for NOT taking up too Much Space, Now it is being Shown 'In Full' !!??
