ProWORX 32/ NxT Data Watch Window is unresponsive to inputs after the log is stopped.

Goals and Symptoms

ProWORX 32/ NxT Data Watch Window is unresponsive to inputs after the log is stopped.

Facts and Changes

If you try to make any changes (i.e., disable a 1x or 0x reference, etc.) in the Data Watch Window after stopping the log, the Data Watch Window does not respond to the user action.

Causes and Fixes

This is the way the Data Logger works. When the Data Logger is running, anything shown in the Data Watch Window will reflect what is being logged to the log file. When the log stops recording, the data watch window will reflects the data in the first row of the log file. Any attempts to make changes to the references listed in the Data Watch Window does not work and the window appears to be unresponsive. The reason for this is because the user is not allowed to make changes the log file.

In order to male changes to the Data Watch Window (i.e., disable/enable the 1x or 0x reference, etc.) the Data Watch window must be switched from the 'Data Logging' mode to the 'Data Watch' mode. This is accomplished in ProWORX 32 by right clicking on the Data Watch Window and selecting 'Close Log File'.
