  1. So does your point (1) mean that if I want to connect the server programmatically to a portable device that I need to do this by calling into and perhaps modifying the C++ library that is installed at the libraries/HTTPServer directory? As for your point (2), I seem to have a case of "it runs on my machine" syndrome. I have several different controls and styles that run correctly locally on my laptop but not on the project server. As a consequence, I am considering moving the html code off of the WF32 and onto my portable device. Unfortunately, this introduces its own set of problems. For
  2. A few more questions: 1) Is it possible to force a reset on the server and reconnect the server to a portable device without recompiling or unplugging it? 2) - It is displaying the text in my htm file so we know that it is finding it correctly. - It is drawing my image correctly so we know that it knows how to navigate folders. - But something is losing the formatting. HomePage.htm says: "The SD file system can contain HTML pages, JPEGs, GIFs, ICOs, TXT, MPEGs, WMVs, JSs, and XMLs for download to the browser;" but says nothing about css files, which are integral to the htm
  3. I am connecting the WF32 to my wifi hotspot now. It seems to be a function of the names allowed by the server software. Initially, the length of the name of my phone was 21 characters including 2 spaces. So I removed the spaces and it still didn't work. But I gave it a 5 character name with no spaces and it connected. Is there an 8 character limit to the server name as with file names? Maybe this is something that could be included in the server software documentation? The problem that I'm having now is that I'm using an HTML flexbox that fails to display. The browser on my phone displays
  4. JColvin, thanks for these pointers. I have successfully built this project locally and brought up its main html page over my wifi network. The problem I'm having now is that I need to run it in an environment without an external wifi network, using the wifi hotspot functionality of a mobile device. It seems like this should be possible but I am unable to get it to connect to the hotspot on my mobile device. Am I missing something here? Or will this require different project source code? Thanks very much. squirrel1
  5. Correct, I was compiling the project as downloaded from here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Remote-IPad-Mount-Control-Using-WF32/ as directed by this thread: https://forum.digilentinc.com/topic/5477-wf32-project-with-user-interface-and-wifi/ So I loaded the project on the File menu as you indicated, and it compiled and uploaded. Now I am missing the instructions on what to do next. There are some instructions in the deWebIOServer file but they seem to be lacking some important points. I need to copy the project to a local location so I can modify it. Where are t
  6. deWebIOServer_compile_output_Digilent_core_2018-01-24.txtdeWebIOServer_compile_output_Digilent_core_2018-01-24.txtI gather from these discussions that I need to try the same project with the same IDE and the same hardware but with a different core. So I installed the Digilent core, reset the board to "chipKIT WF32", and recompiled. I got a different set of error messages, which is progress, right? Arduino->WF32 no longer appears as an option, which is good, right? I have posted the compile output. Do you recognize any of these errors? A few sanity checks: Do I need to
  7. JColvin, Thanks for your reply. I have a couple of questions the answers to which might help me get this working. 1) Is it possible that I installed the libraries in the wrong place on my hard drive so the project is not recognizing them? 2) Are there any other potential gotchas in project installation that would cause it not to build? 3) Can we swap out the chipKIT core version for another version to make this work? 4) Can we swap out the project for another project that does something similar but that builds with either of the cores? 5) What exactly is the func
  8. JColvin, I have verified all of the steps that are required for a setup of this project and it checks out. I have attached a complete build output. Unfortunately, the copy-paste version is not color coded like it is in the IDE but hopefully you can follow what is going on. Instead, I have put notes in where there is an item of interest. I hope you can follow. Thanks so much for your help. squirrel1 deWebIOServer_compile_output_2018-01-18.txt
  9. I am having a similar problem with this project, deWebIOServer. It breaks in the same place, with error: /Users/<my_account_name>/Library/Arduino15/packages/chipKIT/hardware/pic32/1.4.3/libraries/DFATFS/DFATFS.h:136: undefined reference to `DFILE::fsputc(char)' I'm running a WF32 connected with USB to a MacBook running the latest OSX. Did anybody ever find a solution to this problem? Can anybody help me figure out why this won't compile? Thanks!
  10. Hello! I'm new to chipKit development but need to build a project on this platform and hope somebody can suggest some tools and libraries to help me. I have a WF32 board that I am connecting to my Macintosh. On this board, I need to create a user interface that displays data to the user on a tablet and communicates this data to the tablet over the on board wifi interface. I would like to use this wifi interface to communicate a data file to a base station and eventually over a cellular connection back to a server over the internet. I have scanned the projects on the digilentin
