Messages

You can operate messages with the help of a special object – the message loader. First, you load messages into the message loader using either of two commands – messages/load_last or messages/load_interval. Then you can work with them. However, if you need to load other messages, you must clear the loader first, using the command messages/unload.

Loading messages

Let's load data messages with position for the interval from 01.04.2013 to 20.04.2013 with the help of the request messages/load_interval and get first 3 of them. To query only data messages with position use mask 0xFF01 (65281) (0xFF00 (65280) - determines message type, 0x0001 (1) - determines availability of position info in data messages). Also it is necessary to use flag 0x0001 (1), which comes from sum of flags: 0x0000 (0) - data messages, 0x0001 (1) - messages with position.

            "param241": 25701,
            "battery_charge": 0
        }
    }]
}

After loading messages, you can choose any number of them for further processing. For example, let's choose the ninth message from the loader. For this, use the request messages/get_messages:

https://hst-api.wialon.com/wialon/ajax.html?svc=messages/get_messages&
	params={
		"indexFrom":8,
		"indexTo":9
	}&sid=<your_sid>

Response:

[{
    "t": 1364762485,
    "f": 3,
    "tp": "ud",
    "pos": {
        "y": 53.8396992,
        "x": 27.5609216,
        "z": 223,
        "s": 0,
        "c": 45,
        "sc": 7
    },
    "i": 0,
    "p": {
        "param22": 3,
        "adc1": 12.584,
        "pwr_ext": 12.569,
        "param199": 0,
        "param241": 25701,
        "battery_charge": 0
    }
}]

Deleting messages

Now we will try to delete the first message using the request messages/delete_message:

https://hst-api.wialon.com/wialon/ajax.html?svc=messages/delete_message&
	params={
		"msgIndex":0
	}&sid=<your_sid>

Response:

{
    "error": 7
}

User “wialon_test” has not enough rights for this action. However, if you check this example on your server you will get the following response:

{}

Clear message loader

If you want to load messages for other interval or unit, clear the message loader first:

https://hst-api.wialon.com/wialon/ajax.html?svc=messages/unload&params={}&sid=<your_sid>

Response:

{}

If you try to query messages from empty loader, the following error code will be returned:

https://hst-api.wialon.com/wialon/ajax.html?svc=messages/get_messages&
	params={
		"indexFrom":0,
		"indexTo":1
	}&sid=<your_sid>

Response:

{"error":4}

Rendering track layer

If loaded messages contain geographic coordinates, a track can be built on their basis. To do this, you should load messages into a special graphic layer. Track layer can be used in the same way as the message loader. The only difference between them is graphics.

Let's create a track layer for our messages between 01.01.2013 and 20.01.2013. We can do it using the request render/create_messages_layer:

https://hst-api.wialon.com/wialon/ajax.html?svc=render/create_messages_layer&
	params={
		"layerName":"messages",
		"itemId":34868,
		"timeFrom":1357938000,
		"timeTo":1358715599,
		"tripDetector":1,
		"trackColor":cc713cff,
		"trackWidth":5,
		"arrows":1,
		"points":0,
		"pointColor":0,
		"annotations":0
	}&sid=<your_sid>

Response:

{
    "name": "messages",
    "bounds": [53.8326976, 27.2796096, 53.9644416, 27.6123168],
    "units": [{
        "id": 34868,
        "msgs": {
            "count": 5951,
            "first": {
                "time": 1356984476,
                "lat": 53.9077377319,
                "lon": 27.5011463165
            },
            "last": {
                "time": 1358538957,
                "lat": 53.8397254944,
                "lon": 27.5608959198
            }
        },
        "mileage": 699169.703025,
        "max_speed": 118
    }]
}

Besides, you can get the tiles of a track layer using the request avl_render:
