Paid In/Collected
« on: January 15, 2013, 12:17:07 PM »
Hi Corey,

Any chance I can have a layout token for Paid In total (ie collected) this is so I can differentiate between house contribution and collected money in a guarantee tournament that way I can display it in the same manner as below as I can't currently have both amounts separated from each other when I add a guarantee, house contribution and direct buy-in together.

Cheers
Stuart

Another thing I would like to see if it is possible is an active search box, would it be possible for TD3 to actively search as you type characters into the search box, rather than having to type a search string then click search?  I see this on a lot of other tournament software and feel it is does speed up registration somewhat.

pot:<pot>
collected:<expression text="pot - houseAdds - houseContribution" format="money">
house contribution:<houseContribution>
guaranteed pot:<guaranteedPot>
to reach guaranteed pot, house must also add:<expression text="houseAdds" format="money">

A little indirect, but there you are.

Definitely on my radar.  I haven't done this because I didn't believe IE & the current interface were fast enough to make this work reasonably well.

Also, this may have implications for the "Auto-perform" checkbox, which is useful for those employing barcode scanners.

Good to hear, perhaps a prefs option for a future version ;-)

Nice one, doesn't matter how nice it looks, does what it says in the tin, which is perfectly sufficient :-)

Actually had to see how difficult this was and had it implemented in about 5 minutes.  There are some gotchas, so I don't know if I'll add this or not to 3.2, but will definitely be forthcoming.

Brill!

Quick question, can roundPot be added to <expression text="pot - houseAdds - houseContribution" format="money"> to facilitate removal of the decimal places? and whilst i'm asking that question <prizemoneyleft roundOff="true" includeBounty="false" includeRandom="false" includeManual="false"> also??

Cheers

Yes, I'll add these.  In the meantime, you can work around it missing from the <expression> token.  For example:

$<expression text="pot - houseAdds - houseContribution" format="number" precision="0">

got all the Guarantee conditions created successfully, just need to fix the PrizeMoneyLeft one as I can't seem to remove the decimal places, currently using:

<prizeMoneyLeft includeBounty="false" includeRandom="false" includeManual="false">

Have tried adding precision="0" but alas this does nothing.

Sorry, should have been more clear.  I meant that in the meantime you can work around the lack of roundOff attribute on the <expression> token by using the format="number" and precision="0" attributes.  But there isn't a way to work around the lack of roundOff attribute on the <prizeMoneyLeft> token.
