 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I have tried to make a sketch that posts a request to a REST-service every time a button is pushed and every time it's released.

I'm a using a Black Widow-board with wifi.

Sadly it doesn't work as i excpected. When i push the button (and hold it) the POSTrequest.submit() is called, but the createBody() function is not called by the POSTrequest instance. So nothing happens. But when i release the button, a new POSTrequest.submit() is called and now the createBody() function is called and the POSTrequest is executed. Sometimes a button-push and -release results in a single http post and sometimes it results in two posts..?

It seems that the POSTrequest instance won't process a request as long as the button is pressed...?

Can someone explain this behavior?


Code:
#include <WiServer.h>

#define WIRELESS_MODE_INFRA   1
#define WIRELESS_MODE_ADHOC   2

// Wireless configuration parameters ----------------------------------------
unsigned char local_ip[] = {192,168,1,2};   // IP address of WiShield
unsigned char gateway_ip[] = {192,168,1,1};   // router or gateway IP address

//unsigned char local_ip[] = {192,168,100,2};   // IP address of WiShield
//unsigned char gateway_ip[] = {192,168,100,1};   // router or gateway IP address


unsigned char subnet_mask[] = {255,255,255,0};   // subnet mask for the local network



const prog_char ssid[] PROGMEM = {"XXXX"};      // max 32 bytes

unsigned char security_type = 3;   // 0 - open; 1 - WEP; 2 - WPA; 3 - WPA2
// WPA/WPA2 passphrase
const prog_char security_passphrase[] PROGMEM = {"XXXX"};   // max 64 characters

Code:
    if (pin2State != newPin2State)
    {
      pin2State = newPin2State;
      Serial.println("After WiServer.server_task()");
    }
pin2State should ALWAYS be set to newPin2State.

Hi Paul

if (pin2State != newPin2State)
{
      pin2State = newPin2State;
      Serial.println("After WiServer.server_task()");
}

should be equal to:

 if (pin2State != newPin2State)
      Serial.println("After WiServer.server_task()");

pin2State = newPin2State;

Code:
should be equal to:
The second snippet should replace the first snippet. They are not equal, though.
