Did you try using 2 fingers, like zooming in/out in photos?

afaik the app must run all the time if you want the diagram with all datas

Oh yeah that works on my tablet ! I didn't think of that. I was using it on the laptop running the android emulator ,

Just found out how to zoom in and out on the laptop using the emulator - all I have to do is hold down Ctrl key and use mouse wheel and it zooms in and out . Hurray !

Thanks for the tip !

In case anyone wants to run Android on their laptop try out http://www.memuplay.com/   It works great  after initial download you can update it to Android 5.1 emulator version . But Classic Monitoring App works fine on both Memu Play versions.

I have a question about the Live Chart 
If I double click on the screen it seems like it zooms in on the times . But I haven't been able to make it go backwards and zoom out .

Any hints on using  this ?

Also if I close it all the Live Chart data is gone  - is there a way to make that stick in there ? 

I am using Memu Play to view Classic Monitor  which is Android emulator - works great on the Windows 10 laptop .

Thanks
Larry

Hi Larry

the live chart data is just in memory, there is a API provided by Android called "SaveInstanceState" to allow temporary storage of UI data while the activity is not in view or when the device is rotated.

I have another version that displays the reason for resting in the Message tab, it's in my dropbox folder if you would like to try it...

I installed the new apk and Reason for Resting is showing up in the Messages so looks to work fine.  Another helpful update - thanks.

The Dropbox links in previous posts of this thread don't seem to work anymore.

The easiest way to install the app is to install it from google play. Open Google play on your device and search for "Classic Monitor"

or click on this link from your device;

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ca.farrelltonsolar.classic&hl=en&pcampaignid=pcampaignidMKT-Other-global-all-co-prtnr-py-PartBadge-Mar2515-1

or go to the apps github page at https://github.com/ClassicDIY/Classic and click on the "Get it from Google Play" image.

I also have a copy on google drive (you must allow installs from a unknown source, click on this link from your phone)
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1S2BWLFn_nU0NmxXmyhJaz97h0K1_OY6B

There is also a WIKI page including an FAQ that anyone can edit https://github.com/ClassicDIY/Classic/wiki.
