METAR decoding engine for Silverlight?

Feb 2, 2011 at 3:27 PM



I'm working on a hobby project which will require parsing of METARS in the Silverlight environment. I came across your METAR project and love what you have done. I was wondering if you plan on creating a decoder DLL which would work in th eSilverlight environment?


Thank you,

Hi Michael,

to be honest, Im not very (or better Im not) familiar with silverlight issues vs. standard DLL approach and what have to be done to make METAR decoder working under silverlight. A solution for you might be to publish decoder as a web service and call it from the silverlight application.

Im quite busy this week, but Ill check it in the future and will write result of my experiencing here with some more info.

Have a nice day.

I just added this project recompiled for Silverlight 3 and you can find it in the Downloads section. Dont confuse .NET and SLV3 downloads :-)

I hope this helps you. I did not test it well, so please be patient and lenient and if any error occurs, please leave me a a comment here :-)
