LCD Request: Continuous updating to all 4 pages

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

 

Firstly great product, love using it. 

 

 

The feature that I'm looking for is that the info on all 4 pages of the LCD display (I'm using a G19S) updated at the set interval, instead of what happens currently where only the display you're looking at is updated and when you switch back to the other page then only it gets updated upon switching. 

 

This might sound a bit complicated but to put it as an example. I have a graph on page 1 of the download rate for the last 30 seconds. Let's say then I'm on page 2 and start downloading a large file that goes on for some time. When I switch page to page 1 the graph shoots up to the current speed of the download but has no record of the proceeding download speeds. Instead the graph only records what's going on when I'm on page 1! 

 

I hope you can follow this !

I can understand your idea, but I'm afraid it's currently not possible because of the way the hardware monitoring module of AIDA64 is designed.  We may make that possible in the future when the hardware monitoring module gets revamped (rewritten).


Regards,

Fiery

Please note that the requested feature of continuous updating of LCD graphs on inactive pages is scheduled to be rolled out with the next AIDA64 beta update.  It will be released in about 10 days from now.  I'll drop a message into this topic once the new AIDA64 beta is available for download.

Cheers! Hadn't checked this thread in a while and then noted as I was playing around with the LCD that it was working today! Thanks for that. Working well so far!

This is good news, I have an alphalcd and was about to post to find out if this could be done. glad it's going to be implemented, after creating 4 pages for display i was a little disappointed that it didnt automatically change between the pages.

 

Edit. 

 

After installing the beta version in this post i noticed the gauges i created for the alpha lcd screen are not the same as the ones in the latest beta version build 3206, and also with build 3206 the pages dont seem to automatically switch :(

 

can this be made to set the page intervals manually in a future build perhaps?

The original feature request, as posted by 72hundred, was not about automatic LCD page switching, but rather about the non-active pages being updated in the background. We've implemented that feature.

As for your request, we'll work on that. It's definitely something that would come useful when the LCD display has no dedicated buttons and has no touch capability either. We're also planning to implement hot-key and MCE remote control support later on.

I'll let you know in this topic once the automatic LCD page switching is implemented in AIDA64.

The automatic LCD page switching feature has been added to the latest AIDA64 Extreme beta release available at:

http://www.aida64.com/downloads/aida64extremebuild3211m4wrgf1cnuzip

After upgrading to this new version, make sure to restart Windows to finalize the upgrade.

You can configure it in AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD / LCD Options.

Let me know how it works ;)
