WiFiClient.available()

Description

Returns the number of bytes available for reading (that is, the amount of data that has been written to the client by the server it is connected to).

available() inherits from the Stream utility class.

Syntax

client.available()

Parameters

none

Returns

The number of bytes available.

Example

#include <SPI.h>
#include <WiFi.h>

char ssid[] = "myNetwork";          //  your network SSID (name) 
char pass[] = "myPassword";   // your network password

int status = WL_IDLE_STATUS;
char servername[]="google.com";  // Google

WiFiClient client;

void setup() {
  Serial.begin(9600);
  Serial.println("Attempting to connect to WPA network...");
  Serial.print("SSID: ");
  Serial.println(ssid);

  status = WiFi.begin(ssid, pass);
  if ( status != WL_CONNECTED) { 
    Serial.println("Couldn't get a wifi connection");
    // don't do anything else:
    while(true);
  } 
  else {
    Serial.println("Connected to wifi");
    Serial.println("\nStarting connection...");
    // if you get a connection, report back via serial:
    if (client.connect(servername, 80)) {
      Serial.println("connected");
      // Make a HTTP request:
      client.println("GET /search?q=arduino HTTP/1.0");
      client.println();
    }
  }
}

void loop() {
  // if there are incoming bytes available 
  // from the server, read them and print them:
  if (client.available()) {
    char c = client.read();
    Serial.print(c);
  }

  // if the server's disconnected, stop the client:
  if (!client.connected()) {
    Serial.println();
    Serial.println("disconnecting.");
    client.stop();

    // do nothing forevermore:
    for(;;)
      ;
  }
}
