    Imagine you are using my new software, The Studio.

    Now, imagine that there is an option to copy/paste the tote board directly into the program.

    Which tote board would you use?

    Understand that in order for me to be able to write the code that supports pasting from the tote board you use, I must have access. If it is a wagering site, they will not allow me to open an account from NV (with 2 exceptions Philly Park & AM Wager).

    So, who can suggest a site?

    Let me try it another way.

    How do you get data from the tote board?

    ATRpro.... great value at $99.00 per year!

    Thank you.
    Of course, I have that but not everyone wants to spend the money. Besides, getting the data OUT is a hassle.

    ATR actually has an HSH interface that does a good job, but it is too slow when you're playing 4 or more tracks.

    What I meant was, "What WEBSITE do you use to view and/or capture the odds?"

    You're right.... it's not for everyone.
    However, I should have elaborated.... Gary helped me write VBA code that imported tote odds into my custom spreadsheet...it happened instantaneously at the push of a couple of buttons: (1) one for the track of choice and (2) one to import into excel spreadsheet…. I have no problem playing multiple tracks at one time (no hassle whatsoever).
    I wonder if you could work something out with him?
    No response needed…just food for thought.

    As I said, I already have an ATR interface to my existing product.

    Since I am adding features to a new product, I'd prefer it not come with a $100-per-year tax.

    So, I'm looking for tote boards to be copied/pasted into the software.

    I could scrape but that is generally against the terms of service. Well, it is always against TOS.

    FWIW, I usually just play via Amwager so I use their feed and just use it to view, no copy paste.

    Me, too.
    Guess I will begin with that one.

    And, of course, ATR will be an option.

    Since Texas does not allow ADW's, the easiest way for me to follow the action is with Twinspires on my phone while my program is up on my PC.

    Thank you.
    It is imperative that I get the odds into the software.

    I will begin with AmWager and ATR.

    1. Can you get that same site on your computer?
    2. Can you copy/paste the screen?

    It is always available on my phone. Sometimes the availability times out on my laptop.

    If I had the time, I would try to fake being a phone from my laptop... the screen would be more useful, too, because it is simpler on the phone.

    What about question #2 on your computer?

    I can copy the odds section, but the program # is an image, so if I paste into notepad it doesn't appear.
