Hi Mac,

Currently there is no way to configure the contents of the alert emails, but I will probably add something in the next version to choose what goes in the emails. As for the AircraftList URL, that's in the settings (Options > Settings > Radar). You'll need to provide the entire URL, e.g. 'http://*domain/ip*/VirtualRadar/AircraftList.json'.

Thanks for the quick reply!
The radar url appears grayed out when I try to change it?
I'm not at a machine now to double check it though.

Great little piece of software though!

Hi,

The settings allows me to edit the url to the json file alright but is there anyway to change the radar url of the link in the the alert email?

Thanks

Ah, the radar link in the email is taken from the AircraftList.json URL in the settings, so that link should be the same radar that is used for the actual alert data. I could add something so you could manually enter the link but that could end up confusing.

It would be great if you could. ☺️
I could then have a link to http://global.adsbexchange.com/VirtualRadar/

Or some other local VRS.

I occasionally get an error after an alert has triggered " ERROR: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. "
EDIT: I've noticed that when this happens the email doesn't send. My Alert is setup for specific squawk codes.

Any ideas?

Ok, I'll add something in the next version so you can manually specify the radar URL in the emails. That error has happened to me a few times, I'll fix that too for the new update.
