How to Run:

To run this program you need these files in the same folder:

  • JTDashboard.exe
  • JTDashboard.bat
  • JTDashboard.ini
  • Exithandler.dll

Executable files and dll files should not be edited for any reason.

Default Functionality:

For a non-technical user to be able to see what JetTrac is processing in a very user friendly way.

The GUI contains three panes which display logs useful when monitoring the status of the JetTrac jobs running on your server. The three panes are:

Email Inbox Monitor – This pane shows a log of the emails received in a Gmail account. Please note that JTGmailMonitor is required to be running as a service for this to display any data.

Retrieved Emails – This pane displays the log for the JTPOP3Scanner which picks up email attachments sent to a configured watched email address.

JetTrac Processing Window – This pane displays important information on the JetTrac jobs running on your server. It is here that you can find jobs that process correctly as well as jobs that error out.

Beneath the three log panes there are three checkboxes:

Wrap – This checkbox when enabled will wrap text in a single line to the next line instead of having to scroll to the left or right to see the entire line.

Show Alerts – When enabled this checkbox will display an alert pop-up window when a line containing the AlertTag (configured in the Config INI file below) is brought into the Dashboard. Typically this AlertTag is set to ERROR so that it will alert when an error occurs.

Alert Sound – When enabled this checkbox will cause a alert sound to play when an alert pop-up window comes up.

Lastly, the Edit button found on the bottom-right of the GUI will open up the archived log file within your default text editor.

Command Line:

“C:\JTDashboard.exe” “C:\JTDashboard.ini” “C:\JTDashboard.log”
