I agree. Remember, this started a couple of weeks ago for my own usage. But
I believe I should re-think the design before it gets too big.
>The "Load File" function doesn't seem to do anything - is it supposed to
load stuff into the edit
Yes, it does, but only if you have previously saved a file. The first time
around you need to add if counters to the list and save it, especially if
you plan to keep working on the same group of items.
Quote:>After loading a file, clicking EDIT -> Edit gives a message box "Run Time
error '91': Object variable

Sorry, that was happening when you'd try to edit an empty file. It's been
fixed. You can download it again (the whole installer or just the

that is what it seems to do ?
Done. Again, the look and Feel may change soon.

"Exclude this value", along

Not sure I understand the request, and why would it be needed.
Quote:>The refresh and Polling interval should have default values.
They do now. I will put a check for a situation where it has been deleted,
and also to make sure that the working directory has been set.
Quote:>Should not have to select "Load File", in order to create a new one.
You don't. When you get the if Counters from a device, right-clicking on an
interface and "adding to List" a new file will be started. You have to save
it though if you want to continue on it the next time.
Quote:>Creating the file should add interfaces - All I get is 3 global options in
the created file.
You should have some interfaces in the list, first.

Your comments have been very constructive, and I thank you for them. I
realize that this utility is still a little confusing to use it, as I
explained it was for my own use. It seems though that a few people are
finding it interesting, so with your input I'll clean it up.
Don't be shy to let me know your thoughts.
It is still my intention to put it in the Open Source domain, as soon I
understand all the that is involved
