Thank you for your reply Giuseppe.
Yes, there is long time i was not here.
I am released of work now :) But not without many things to do before, so i had no time for my hobbies.

Before we can get the weather by the IP address, in fact the server return the city of the Internet connexion management for the user.
That was an interesting possibility because that works in all places and i'm asking myself if i can use it always.
I thanks you for your time to take a look.

I wish you a nice evening.
Regards, Laurent.

Hi Marco & Giuseppe,
Yes all seems working since yesterday evening.
But i still have some questions for Giuseppe.
1) What's the difference between the new API2 method and the old method on the website ?
2) Can we use the same API keys on the website with API2 url, or we need to have new API keys for version 2 ?
I have try yesterday with the old keys and library v3.5 but i obtain errors.
For be honest it's hard to know now if it's due to the API key or the problems from their website.
3) Giuseppe, have you planned to put conditions weather for ski and marine in the library ?

Thank you for your time Giuseppe, as always you do your best.

Regards, Laurent.

Hi Giuseppe, I tried your demo code but it references to the 'ICOSWorldForecast' library, but you attached at the fist post the 'ICOSWorldForecastfree' library. Is there a working demo?

Ciao Giuseppe, ho provato ad eseguire il tuo demo ma la libreria a cui si riferisce non è quella che hai allegato, alcuni metodi sono differenti, hai un demo funzionante ?

Hello,

Your errors are not related to the library.
The variable 'a' is the instance of library, it's what i remember, that's why it generates errors because not assigned.
It's because you don't put the library in your additional library folder or you put it but you don't select it in the libraries tab inside B4A.
Tip : After put library in library additional folder, and select the library in libraries tab, if it's needed, click right and use refresh for B4A knows the new environment.

Regards.
Laurent

Hello,

It's a bit weird, try to declare again the instance of the library in the code.
Or you can try to declare an instance of the library in a new project.
Normally in BA4 if your library is recognized you can access to the object ICOSWorldForecastFree, otherwise you don't see it in the IDE.
Take a look at the print screen below.
EDIT : Code in the print screen is not the example of Giuseppe, no matter if it's different, it's working in same way.

And you can verify if the instance of library is normally declared in the global (or local) module, but in the example normally that's done already.
I say that because the precedent post, indeed in example it's still declared like with the old library, see above : https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/icosworldforecast-3-50.21852/page-24#post-336993
B4X:
Sub Process_Globals
  Dim a As ICOSWorldForecastFree         '< this line.
End Sub

In last, i have seen in posts that if you aren't registered within B4A, you can't access to additional libraries, maybe that's it the problem.
In this case try to contact Erel for that, it's better.

Good luck.

Regards, Laurent.

P.S.: Thank you for French, it's ok, you can use English language. I'm trained all days with my wife, even it's not my native language.:)
And it's better here in English forum.

:confused:
Have you try to do another project with another library and declare the instance of it ?
If that not works also, the problem is not due to the library.
In this last case, it's better to open a new subject because maybe it's related to BA4 or Java directly.

The best way is you post your example that you try to use, Menu File, Export as Zip, and i will try to see where the errors are.
But i can't guarantee that's working at last, because for me the example works fine.

After we still have the church to put a candle :D (joke)
