SteelSeries and WC solar tags
« on: April 14, 2013, 03:31:35 PM »
Now I have an experimental solar sensor hooked up to my VP2 I was taking a closer look at the solar readings handling in the SteelSeries gauges. ;)

I don't think the WeatherCat tags look right...
Code: [Select]
"SolarRad":"STAT$SOLAR:CURRENT$",
"CurrentSolarMax":"STAT$SOLAR:MAX:TODAY$",

"CurrentSolarMax" should be the current 'theoretical' maximum solar reading possible, is that what that tag is producing?

There is also a missing field "SolarTM", which should be the maximum solar reading obtained so far today, is there a tag for that?

Thanks
Mark

Hi Mark,
There isn't a tag for the theoretical current maximum reading - I'll take a look at it during the 1.2 development.

STAT$SOLAR:MAX:TODAY$ returns the maximum solar radiation recorded today - that can go in SolarTM.

Cheers,
Stu.

Thanks Stu, I'l change the script to cater for the lack of the value for now, I want to push 2.3.1 out for a number of minor updates.
