    help required for school charity fundraiseing Event(

    I have been asked to find an Dynamic/live animated Thermometer for our fund raising event in a couple of weeks.

    We are going to Bike ride and row and jog from school all the wat to morroco in a day. Okay we are not leaving the school hall but it will been just as hard.

    I need a themometer that i can set up so that as money is handed in and counted we can enter the current running total and then the themometer will refect this by raising the red centre line.

    I have found a few online but thay do not do what i need.

    If anyone can help it woould be very gratfully recived
    We intend on doing live web broadcasting of event during the day so i will post the weblink when set up.

    Thanks in advance

    Ah Ok, thanks 8) It should be easily doable with a PHP script utilising the GD module to generate the image 'on the fly' from raw data.

    A quick search for that sort of thing returned this but you'd more than likely want the PHP source code to install it yourself.

    Tried that one but

    As i do not know php this does not have any input options on the page
    so that the staff can enter figures in and it auto changes.

    So if anyone can help with the php editing of this one to allow user input
    it would be great

    Nice! I must look into more PHP sometime. I only ever use it for basic database queries on stuff like our exam grades.

    I'll post it here for others to download if they are interested as well.

    It's nothing flash.. just saves/reads values from text files - so these need write permissions on the server you put them on (eg. chmod 664/777) for it to work. There's also not much in the way of error-checking so make sure people only input numbers with no separators
