the problem you have is to avoid scrolling down for 5 minutes on the pop up graph you have to make the Betfair page font so small that you need a microscope to read it
Report Big Boss December 5, 2018 12:25 PM GMT
i am running ultra widescreen 3440 x 1440 with two pages side by side, with zoom up to 150% on those pages so text easier to read.

The new pop up graph design means I have to scroll through 2 ridiculously sized graphs to access the written data below.

Another mistake is that after race is off, it still shows a projected BFSP on the pop up rather than the actual BFSP.

BADLY DESIGNED, OPTIMIZED AND NOT TESTED BEFORE ROLL OUT, RANT OVER

is there a way of getting the old graph?

^ Why? - The display is barely any different

The alternative  Display is now entitled 'Chance' - instead of 'Inverse' mode/Display

The Standard  Graph Line - and Amount Bet/Traded - NOW MOVES as the Prices CHANGE - NOT as before - when it stayed STUCK on the Price when you activated the Graph ...

Surely that is an enhancement.

you have to pi$$ about changing the size of the pop up page to be able to access the data on it easier, a right ball ache

I've just noticed that the chart updates, rather than having to press refresh.  That's useful near the off and during the race.  It's unnecessary hours beforehand when the market's pretty static.

Don't suspect for one minute that Betfair are interested in feedback but ...

The "Betfair SP" columns take up a quarter of the page and are a waste of space.  There's nothing of interest or relevance in them.  Get rid of these and you could make everything else more readable.

Not sure what you mean by - "back to normal"

The NEW Chart Display has been the SAME for me, ever since I first Logged-On this Morning - and nothing has changed since.

I  find it not that much different than previousl - neglible, in fact - apart from the IMPROVEMENT of a little larger Graph and Amounts Traded Displays -  that both of which  NOW MOVE in Real-Time.

Nothing to complain about.

Onlooker, think you may not have seen the  new format that many saw; did look like an import from purple. Reverted to previous here too now

How. otherwise, would I know that the Graphs are a little larger - and more importantly - "NOW MOVE in Real-Time"  ... as I have already posted, twice.

I agree with looky. It was an overall improvement. Looking forward to when it becomes permanent Laugh whether the majority like it or not, the IT geeks always have their way Laugh
Report flukes December 5, 2018 5:18 PM GMT
No idea Onlooker, perhaps you can explain why some still have the new format and some don't. One thing for sure is that anybody who works in IT and knows their stuff is not likely to be working for Betfair.

Betfair promised to implement graphs api years ago, so it is a good step. What they implemented for now is not so good, but it is at least something usefull for bot developers.

Here is video showing how it looks, as url was removed from official web site, but service is still available:

I've heard it was a mistake on BF's part that we saw the 'new' charts at all - there was a 'leak' from the mobile site to the desktop site.

It was horrible, it was too big but is was ok for those with a cinema screen i suppose. at least you wont need to go too specsavers to read it.

Actually - The ODDS - which were moved to the Centre of the Column, on the Ladder - were in a slightly SMALLER Font on that NEW version, than on this current Ladder.

The GRAPHS were LARGER - and therefore, far more readable and informative.
