Effect library entry.

Refresh (Colin J)

This effect refreshes the published page every 10 seconds and makes sure it’s up to date by clearing the cache.

It’s useful when displaying results continuously on a big screen at events.

It can be downloaded from here.

It can take a URL parameter:-

  • rate defines the refresh rate in milliseconds overriding the default of 10 seconds; i.e. the default is equivalent to url?rate=10000.


TableSorter (Jon)

2018/04/16 Updated to version 1.2 to work with https websites

This effect allows the sorting of the columns for the results summary tables and sort indicators are added to the column headers.   Columns are sorted alphabetically except the race columns which have a custom parser to make them numeric – so even if a result is discarded and the number is in brackets it will use the numeric value within the cell.  Click on the column header to sort any column.  Clicking it a second time will reverse the sorting.  If you are using a PC to view then you can sort on multiple columns by holding down the control key while you select the next column.  Or use the Alt key to reset the sort (You can always click on the Rank column header to reset also)

It can be combined with the HighlightWins3 if required





It can be downloaded from here.

HighlightWins3 (Jon)

This effect highlights the first 3 places in the series summary tables in different colours.  It is an extension of Colin’s HighlightWins effect.  It can be used as it is or you can examine the code to see how only the race columns are manipulated (1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 will not be highlighted in other columns or the table header).  It will also highlight the results even if they are discarded as it uses a regular expression to match the points for 1st, 2nd and 3rd.  The colours by default match those of stickers commonly used to denote these positions, but you can edit the colours to those of your choice.



It can be downloaded from here.

Updated to V1.6 30th August 2015 Changed Regular expression used – Jon
