TimeStamp of displayed data

  • Hello and thanks for the grate api.
    I have notice that windytv api, select closet time to the one set with W.setTimestamp method.
    RedrawFinished returns displayedParams params object.
    Here we have a timestamp but that one is the requested on and not the value of loaded data.
    I'm using W.timeline.path2date(displayedParams.path) to get loaded data timestamp, is that correct?

    @kappu72 Can you please post here the resulted object from displayedParams?

  • I think you can reproduce, I did this:
    from developer console I overwrite redrawFinished event adding a console.log
    W.on('redrawFinished',function( displayedParams ) {
    state.innerHTML = new Date( displayedParams.timestamp ).toString();
    Then I pull the range component to its max value, this is the result:
    "acTime": "next24h",
    "dataLoading": -1,
    "filename": "wind",
    "fullPath": "https://www.windytv.com/gfs/2016/12/20/12/wind-surface.jpg?0900",
    "gridName": "wind",
    "historical": false,

    "sstTime": "2015/01",
    "tileZoom": 0,
    "timestamp": 1482256800000

    If you notice path is "path": "2016/12/20/12", while "timestamp": 1482256800000
    if I transform this with new Date( 1482256800000).toString(); the result is
    "Tue Dec 20 2016 19:00:00 GMT+0100 (CET)" that is what range components shows as current date.
