    Another simple idea, change the color of the start/stop button depending on it's state. Maybe turn it red when it's recording. Everything is pretty monochrome as is and it can be hard to distinguish what state the logging is in.

    Now if I'm logging the same parameters over again, and I hit resume, yes, it's being appended. But I checked my files and only one log appeared when I had recorded six different logs previously. If the coding saved each file via the date and time, that would prevent files from being overwritten.
    I don't see how the behavior described is possible.

    Here, I logged some data from an 01-Engine:



    As you can see, the default filename is LOG-01-xxxxxxx_&n.CSV, where 01 is the address of the Engine module, xxxxxxx is the name of the first item you're logging, and &n is how many more items that log contains.

    Next, I logged some data from 02-Auto Trans:



    The default filename starts with LOG-02, because the address of the module is 02.

    I did that three times (same data each time). Between the first and the second session, I did not just hit start and resume, I backed all the way out of 02-Transmission to the opening screen, then went back in. Between the second and third session, closed VCDS entirely and started composing this message, the re-started it. The raw logged data follows. As you can see, all three sessions are in there, with each subsequent one appended to the first.

    Code:

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Mine always reads the same, don't know why...I always try to remember to change it but sometimes if I go for a month without logging, I forget and they get written over. I logged six different "pulls" a few days ago to redline and just hit save each time. I have exactly two logs on that date as the first I did rename but forgot to rename subsequent pulls. I can do a screen grab. You can see the two files and the date. Spent at least 45 minutes logging.

    I went out yesterday morning and logged but was very careful to rename each file.

    I have learned to like the resume feature if I'm logging the same parameters multiple times. If I'm logging and know/remember what I'm doing at the time, it's easy to disseminate all the information and it's in one log.

    But for a calibrations engineer who may be tuning remotely, having multiple pulls or different parameters being recorded all in one log can be very confusing. It's always easier though to have a nice, clean and short log session targeting exactly what you're trying to adjust for.

    So I adjusted the window size to 20 on my 13" laptop. Big mistake. There were popups that suggested the optimal setting per screen resolution but when you move the cursor quickly, they don't appear. I just slid it to the right and I had no reference and just tried 20. I hit save, quit the program and relaunched. Once I did that, I could no longer see the bottom of the VCDS screen. So even though I can change the window size with the slider, I can't see any of the buttons to save it. I have a feeling I'll have to uninstall and re-install the program.

    I'm not a windows guy at all. There doesn't seem to be any way to drag the screen up (there's no drag anchor point like at the top of the window) and there's no scroll. Seriously frustrating. Please, please, please port this program to Mac.

    I'm not sure whether this is the right thing to do, but if you look in the file VCDS.CFG in the \Ross-Tech\VCDS folder you should see a line saying "Size=20" which you could change to say "Size=12"?

    But BEWARE the first two lines in this file say:
    Code:
    ; Please don't edit this file.
    ; Use the OPTIONS screen to set this stuff!
    so this would be at your own risk.

    Yes, one could edit the file. Depending what editor is used to do that, VCDS may or may not like the results.

    The "approved" method is just to delete the VCDS.CFG file. Then when VCDS is started again, it will create a new one with default settings for everything that's in it. To make that super-easy to do, there's even a menu item "Delete config file and close" accessible by clicking the VCDS logo on the left end of the first screen's title bar.

    Good to know. I ended up deleting the program and reinstalling.
