Santa Tracker Updated for Indigo 7 (works with 6!)

Merry Christmas to everyone,

Well who would have thought that so many people were interested in Santa's location on Christmas Eve? It's been a great response and we've ditched a lot of bugs and awkward UI issues that people didn't like. There were also a few user requests for additional fields and I've added those. That said, if you've already created a control page it'll work just fine with the latest version - but you might like some of the new fields :D

Latest versions

The latest version is .0.3.011 and you can download it from this link:https://www.dropbox.com/s/g99256ija2247li/SantaTracker.zip?dl=1

The latest updated manual can be downloaded here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/rscbjdswrub8jf3/Santa%20tracker.pdf?dl=1 which covers the new features and options

The latest control page templates can be downloaded here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/lkyldusq4fq7nf5/SantaTrackerCP.txt?dl=1 or as a zip file from here:https://www.dropbox.com/s/nhm62p03ckv3s2t/SantaTrackerCP.txt.zip?dl=1. Both of these functions are identical but some users have had better luck downloading a zip file rather than a text file.

What's new in version 0.3.011?

Bug Fixes

As promised in the last post I've been working hard to remove any bugs or issues that people have discovered - thanks so much for all your efforts! Some of the issues were just bad coding, others bad logic and the rest simply improvements in the UI, colours and performance. I'm feel quite happy with the code now - but we'll see if my confidence is misplaced in this release :roll:

New Fields

There were a number of requests for new fields so I've added those in this release. The first additions were a count down to Santa's take off from the North Pole (timeToTakeOff and sleighStatus) which provide a countdown clock for use on Control Pages and once Santa has left it provides other information such as ON THE GROUND,IN THE AIR or LANDED as and FLYING, DELIVERING GIFTS or BACK HOME as appropriate

This is my new Control Page (you can download the template from the links above):

This shot shows the countdown clock as the Tracker waits for the optimum time for Santa to leave

Best regards and seasons greetings
