Wind Control
Updated 2007-Jan-26

Download Wind.ocx Visual Studio Control
Go to the Wind Control Demo web page.

The Wind Control shows the angle of the wind and the speed of the wind. Wind angles may be set as "Relative" or "True," and the valid speed units are (K) "Knots," (M) "Miles per Hour," and (N) "Meters per Second." This conforms to the NMEA $..MWV sentence, which means this control will accept NMEA sentences via the MWV Method. One may also use several Properties to specify wind angle WindAngle, wind speed WindSpeed, the speed unit being used SpeedStandard, and if the wind angle is true or relative Relative.

The Twilight and Night Properties conform with the same color scheme as the rest of The NMEA Sage Controls.
