Hey Corey this might not be a bug, but when you export results into a csv if you choose not include column headers the first row has quotation marks around it's data like the column headers do ex:

With column headers
"First Name", "Last Name"

Without Column headers included

You can use this piece software although I'm not sure the cost associated with it

or you can use VLC which is free to download and use

Here is a tutorial on performing what you are after using VLC

I actually just finished up the site for our league, season starts this Saturday.  Basically what Corey said is the way to go.  Generate an export from TD in csv format, and parse out the results, and dump them into your website's db.  The only thing I have to do is print out a list of players added to the database, and add their ID's to the ID field in TD.  Probably a step I didn't need to do, but would rather have mysql assign the id's that way I know I'm in control of it.  Our league is pretty simplistic, but you can check out our page here

first tournament results will be posted after saturday if you want to see it with some data in it, I was testing on different site:

just created a dummy tournament with only two people and some bogus results from TD.

I'm using Coldfusion for my implementation, might make it available at some juncture to the public to download and install on your own site.  Right now I have it pretty intertwined with my custom CMS, so not sure how much of that code I want to push out to the general public ya know, but I can mod it out so it's standalone.  If anyone's interested let me know, and I'll get to work on it.

Well here is my screen layout using the html screen in 3.2 beta.  All in all I think it turned out ok, although would look a lot nicer in standards mode.  Thanks for the help on explaining a few things to be me Corey

aware that the file name chosen has no effect on the rendered output in td was simply stating that it rendered correctly with the standalone hta processor.

Compatibility mode.  There's not much (if anything) that can be done about this.  Moving to standards mode is a goal, but from the research I've done, even if I migrate everything to standards mode, there's a bug (or shortcoming) in IE (when used in HTA mode, which is what the TD uses) that prevents child windows from using standards mode.  Kinda throws a wrench into the whole program.

HTML screens are referenced from a temp location, so relative paths would be rendered useless.  It is recommended that you use the <datastore> token on paths to effect a relative path.  For example, if you save your images in:

C:\Users\tbankert\The Tournament Director 2\Data\images

... then you should be able to reference images in your layout like so:

<img src="<datastore>/images/someImage.jpg">

Also from what I've read IE-9 and above will render child frames / iframes in standards mode.  It won't however deal with modals and other html 5 windowed elements very well rendering them in ie 8.

I seem to be getting my layout to render somewhat in html5, still not supporting border-radius for whatever reason.  Oddly enough if I just save the html file with a .hta extension it displays properly.

quick question are you wrapping the html content into an already existing page?
My Inserted File

or are you just rendering whatever is in the file?

Can you try adding something like this to  your hta setup
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />

I may be able to force it out of compatibility mode just to test it out will take a look when I get home this evening.

So messing around with the html screen layout, one caveat is you can't reference css sheets or images with relative paths although once the main sheet is attached using file:///drive:/path/to/file/file.css you can reference images and imported style sheets using their relative path to the sheet.

Also what version of IE is TD using to render the HTML  it appears to either A be running in compatibility mode or using a much older version of IE to render the page.

Sounds good I'll check it.  Are they any style definitions td doesn't support, or is it simply using whatever version of IE you have on your machine.  Scripting support would be pretty nice to add at some point.  In combing through the forums I noticed a lot of requests for sports news and tickers etc.  Would be really easy to wire up jquery, and pull an xml or json feed in and parse it into an element.

I've done a little reading of the docs and browsed the forums a bit here, but have a few questions.

The documentation says you can use HTML.

Can I just start with blank html page, attach a stylesheet and start mocking up my screens.  It seems to me everyone just photoshops a background image in.  Would much rather use something like bootstrap, and lay everything out all nice and neat.
