Update Components on Canvas


#1

Hi!,

I was working on a project before I installed the new version of HB LB legacy.
After the installation I have this error on the Daylight Analysis


that I did not have before. So an educated guess is because the components in my canvas are not updated.
I used the update components like I show in the picture,

but for what I see it does not update the compoents in the canvas, rather it download the last versions from github.
I remember that in older versions there was a option to do so, to update the components in the canvas.
If I have to do so manually it is gonna take forever, as the file I am working on is rather big, with several connection.

Any insight would be helpful.

Best regards,

Federico

We have broken down the update process into two steps to avoid full download from GitHub for each file update.

The step 1 is what you have done which updates Ladybug and Honeybee installation.

The next step is to update the file using Ladybug’s update_file component.

It will update all the components including the ones from the [+] library to the latest version installed on your laptop.

Thanks @mostapha,

Just to be sure, the one that is marked with the red circle is the old one and the other is the new that I need to use?

Yes. That’s correct. Also in case you don’t know you can use Ctrl + Shift and right click for reconnecting multiple wires.
