Weatherlink DLL/SDK 2.42
« on: February 10, 2010, 06:37:05 PM »
Steve (or anyone else who might know)

It had passed me by until tonight, but I notice that there is a new version of the Weatherlink SDK/DLL (2.42) available for download, which covers a few points eg Vue support, but which interestingly also has mention of a LOOP2 packet apparently containing 5 extra parameters. It sounds like you need (VP2) console firmware v1.90+ to access this new packet type, but right now AFAIK the latest released console firmware is v1.82, so a question of watch this space I suppose.

Also, I guess this may have relevance to future VVP and VPLive versions, but I was just wondering whether anyone has looked into the documentation for DLL v2.42 yet and has spotted what those new parameters might be?

From documentation:
short int IsNewLoopPackageSupported_V()
Check with the console support the new loop package, which gets the following data: Last 2 minutes wind average, last 10 minutes wind gust, last hour rain, last 24 hour rain, and bar-altimeter.

Return Values
FALSE if data is new loop is not supported, otherwise, returns TRUE.
