    MDX Mini-Release 3.1.0.559 and new Updater compatible with 3.1

    Only difference in this release is a publically available switch statement, and a new updater.

    Easiest way to obtain the update is download the installer package. It is now close to 8Mb, not 300Mb. If you have .NET and DirectX, it will not re-download them.

    BE WARNED: The installer will overwrite your Content folder. If you have something you want to save, you should as good practice make your own folder, or at the least rename it something or copy it to a safe place and move it back after the update.


    MDX: Switch statement is now available to everyone and is optimized for the new lookup based logic meaning speedy speedy. This is an easy way to do lots of if this then this/if else that then do this else/else if that 2 then do this else 2/ect...

    Only available through manual XML editing, samlple syntax below:

    Code:
          <switch fire_on="logic">
            <object>
              <variable do="get" name="Variable_Analogue_Input_0"></variable>
            </object>
            <cases>
              <case parameter1="0" parameter2="2" check="between">
                <variable do="set" name="Variable_Analogue_Input_1">
                  <operation type="add">
                    <parameter1>
                      <variable do="get" name="Variable_Analogue_Input_1"></variable>
                    </parameter1>
                    <parameter2>
                      <number>1</number>
                    </parameter2>
                  </operation>
                </variable>
              </case>
              <case parameter1="2" parameter2="4" check="between">
                <variable do="set" name="Variable_Analogue_Input_1">
                  <operation type="multiply">
                    <parameter1>
                      <variable do="get" name="Variable_Analogue_Input_1"></variable>
                    </parameter1>
                    <parameter2>
                      <number>2</number>
                    </parameter2>
                  </operation>
                </variable>
              </case>
              <case parameter1="4" check="greater than or equal to">
                <variable do="set" name="Variable_Analogue_Input_1">
                  <operation type="subtract">
                    <parameter1>
                      <variable do="get" name="Variable_Analogue_Input_1"></variable>
                    </parameter1>
                    <parameter2>
                      <number>10</number>
                    </parameter2>
                  </operation>
                </variable>
              </case>
            </cases>
          </switch>
    Updater: You can now set how "annoying" it is, and the frequency of checks. The Configuration.xml file in the installation folder looks like below, and it is rather self explanatory with the comments included:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <configuration>
      <!--
      Time Between Checks
          Time between server requests
          Value is in milliseconds
      -->
      <option time_between_checks="86400000" />
      
      <!-- 
      Annoyance Factor:
          reclusive: Will only show very important messages
          normal:    DEFAULT: Will show regular useage messages
          obnoxious: Will show everything
      -->
      <option annoyance_factor="normal" />
    </configuration>

    Thanks for the updates. This is working much better. But I am trying to put in a custom query. And I cannot build the query. I can make the reply but the beginning, middle, and end all have big red X's. Not saying it is not me but I have tried everything I know that might be the problem.

    Big red x's in the configurator? Can you post a screenshot? I will probably be a little quiet this week, but hopefully more time as the weekend approaches.

    Is the updater working as it should if you made it more "quiet"?

    Ok, there was a rather big oversight in the updater that was just released, that is fixed now. So current updater version as of 07/10/2008 is 4.0.0.156.

    Just put up minutes before this post, you will need the update to the updater!

    everything is ok with us dr Toaster ,

    every effort you make is much upreciated and we are full aware that you giving us enormus part of your personal time and strength.

    dont forget that we bougth the board with the existing software on the date of purchase, so every bit of new stuff you giving us is a plus and not a "must" or "should".

    So without meaning that you should do that today (or the next day) have you any progress with drivers?

    thanks again
    Panos, SV1COX

    Woops .... Sorry I did not mean big X's.. I was at work and someone was talking to me while I was typing. But there are red x's and not green. Here is a screen shot.

    "Enter" (on the keyboard) to enter it into the list. Select and press the red x to delete what is selected.
