How to use the small example

Within the latest library package (only the Windows version) we have included a small program which can be used as example on how to work with the library or as a data sharing gateway between your system and our database. The binary is called libhomeradar.exe and can handle up to 5 input sources, enable and disable local webserver and can send your contacts to the public collector at collector.libhomeradar.org on port 8080

As long as you have no database files within the folder where libhomeradar.exe is located, you see only ICAO24 framenumbers and callsigns and NO registrations and flight routings.


Popup menu

After you have started the program you should see in your Windows taskbar a small earth icon.

Push down the right mouse button over the icon. A short menu should be popup (see screenshot)

Click the Add Server menu entry to add a server. A small input window will appear to add the servername and the port. If you wish to connect to a Radarbox station you should also check the available checkbox.


 

The share contacts option is a ON/OFF switch. After you are connected to a server, you can enable or disable this option. Before you start the webserver you can change the port for the server. After the webserver is started you cannot change the port!
When the webserver is started, you'll get a small success window with the location on where to point your favorite web browser.

After some seconds (depending on the traffic on your location) you should see aircrafts on the map (including their routes) and on the right a small table with the aircraft registration, flightnumber, route, last contact and flightlevel (registration and route only if database files are available)

Webserver will display contacts on Google Maps
