single-key datalogging?

Postby ChevelleFan » Thu Jul 27, 2017 8:15 am

Is there a way I can activate datalogging with a single key? When I'm pulling into the lane at the drag strip, Ctrl-L + Enter (to accept default file name) is more cumbersome than I'd like, and it's worse when I'm in the shutdown area or poorly-lit return road trying to shut it off.

What I'd prefer is a single key to toggle datalogging on/off, preferably an F-key, as it's easy to find quickly when the laptop is sitting on my passenger seat.

Optionally, a dialog box to define a log prefix name might be nice, although that's less important, as the default time-stamp is otherwise fine.

You can set a gauge or indicator to start logging or toggle logging on a click or touch.
Many of the TS 3.0 dashboards already have that setup. To add your own, go into designer mode.

You can also set up "Triggered Logging" so it will automatically log based on the set condition.

This is what I have done. I use a windows tablet as my dashboard and have some rectangle icons that start and stop logging at the push of a button

Just setup an auto trigger for right below your burnout RPM.

The auto-trigger works nicely.
I've set it to start logging the moment the engine starts (RPM > 1).
