Methods and properties described in this section are specific to ESP8266. They are not covered in Arduino WiFi library documentation. Before they are fully documented please refer to information below.
void onEvent (WiFiEventCb cb, WiFiEvent_t event=WIFI_EVENT_ANY) __attribute__((deprecated))
To see how to use
onEvent please check example sketch WiFiClientEvents.ino available inside examples folder of the ESP8266WiFi library.
WiFiEventHandler onStationModeConnected (std::function< void(const WiFiEventStationModeConnected &)>) WiFiEventHandler onStationModeDisconnected (std::function< void(const WiFiEventStationModeDisconnected &)>) WiFiEventHandler onStationModeAuthModeChanged (std::function< void(const WiFiEventStationModeAuthModeChanged &)>) WiFiEventHandler onStationModeGotIP (std::function< void(const WiFiEventStationModeGotIP &)>) WiFiEventHandler onStationModeDHCPTimeout (std::function< void(void)>) WiFiEventHandler onSoftAPModeStationConnected (std::function< void(const WiFiEventSoftAPModeStationConnected &)>) WiFiEventHandler onSoftAPModeStationDisconnected (std::function< void(const WiFiEventSoftAPModeStationDisconnected &)>)
To see a sample application with
WiFiEventHandler, please check separate section with examples :arrow_right: dedicated specifically to the Generic Class..
Module is able to reconnect to last used Wi-Fi network on power up or reset basing on settings stored in specific sectors of flash memory. By default these settings are written to flash each time they are used in functions like
WiFi.begin(ssid, password). This happens no matter if SSID or password has been actually changed.
This might result in some wear of flash memory depending on how often such functions are called.
false will get SSID / password written to flash only if currently used values do not match what is already stored in flash.
Please note that functions
WiFi.softAPdisconnect reset currently used SSID / password. If
persistent is set to
false, then using these functions will not affect SSID / password stored in flash.
To learn more about this functionality, and why it has been introduced, check issue report #1054.
WiFi.mode(m): set mode to
WiFi.getMode(): return current Wi-Fi mode (one out of four modes above)
