Change filenaming template when saving tables/logs

Postby BigBlockMopar » Fri Aug 11, 2017 1:46 pm

Is it possible to change the filenaming 'template' (used for instance when saving tables or logs) somewhere?

Currently for tables it's something like: "Name_Date(YYYY-MM-DD)_Time(HH.MM.SS).table"
"ignitionTbl1_2017-02-23_22.47.36.table"

For better chronological file sorting, I would like to change this into a Date-first filename: "Date(YYYYMMDD)-Name".

Unfortunately, not that is in the code itself. There is no external config file for that.

Ok, was afraid is was hardcoded. No problem.

I'm always a bit against having too much 'useless' characters in filenames, like spaces, or the "-" or "." between date- and timefields as they serve no real purpose and only create unneeded long filenames.
Long filenames also can make browsing for files in small and/or fixed sized filewindows a bit of an issue sometimes.

If I understand what you are saying you could take the tune you want to rename and do a save as and rename it to what you want.

It will be the same tune but with the name sequence you wanted.

I manually rename certain files at the moment, but usually it's cumbersome doing this on a tiny no-numpad keyboard, small screen tablet in a car.
