WebSimConnect 1.3 suite released

Posted by WebSimConnect on October 16, 2014 at 11:25 AM

Dear All,

As promissed earlier this month, I released today the version 1.3 of WebSimConnect suite.The scope of this version was focused on webpage and add-on integration. Please find below the list of new features:


1. Bug fixing


  • When having multiple WebSimGauges in the Virtual Cockpit, it resulted in the crash
  • Reloading aircraft/flight did not release all memory
  • Fixed rendering issue that could result in the crash during the rendering
  • Fixed sizing of the windowed gauge
  • Fixed mouse handling allowing drag operations in the 2D window mode. Please note, dragging in 3D is not possible, due to a bug that exists in FSX/P3D (Support ticket for P3D created)


2. Callback and JavaScript integration

A new class was created to handle messages related to JavaSctipt processing. A Function called from JavaScript code can be captured in the C++ code. Additionally three message handlers OnBeforeBrowse OnPageLoaded, OnBeforeClose were added to the Callback class.

3. Support for IFRAME

All functions operating on HTML5 page have optional szFrame argument that allows choosing to which IFRAME window the call should be redirected.

4. CrossDomain calls and PDF rendering

The page can be enabled to allow cross domain calls. This is required to render PDF images with the use of pdf.js - JavaScript PDF reader - https://github.com/mozilla/pdf.js/

5. Disable rendering

A new function that allows to switch on/off rendering. It is useful for Virtual Cockpit gauges that unlike windowed gauges are always visible.

6. Debugging

The deployment package comes with Release and Debug versions of WebSimBrowser.dll. The Debug version allows to remotely debug the page rendered in the gauge using external Chromium based browser.

7. Synthetic Vision System example

New example (WebSimSVS) with full source code, so you can explore how to build new generation gauges with my software.

All the new functionality can be tested with updated WebSimClient project. I hope you will enjoy it.


The suite is available in the Download section


Cheers

Hi Marcin,
great news, we will deeply test version 1.3 in order to help you to make even better.
We at SSW we are happy to be among the first who were able to understand how revolutionary was WebSimConnect, henceforth nothing will be as before in the development of addon for FSX / P3D.
