BMW Coding Database

Hello,

I have something to share with all of you, I created a windows application to view and submit coding for F-series and E-series. I find it sometimes hard to find the right codings in the maze of cheat sheets and so on, that is why i decided to write this application.

v1.2.1 is ready for download



Download link: http://bmwcodingdatabase.com/downloa...base-setup.exe

Changelog v1.2.1

- Added Offline Mode
- Print functionality
- Export to CSV and XML
- Edit own codings
- Multi Submit
- Group ID
- Search when typing

Looks good. Does this work with Esys ?. Can you code with this or just to check coding. ? Please explain.

This application is connected to a database to view coding, similar to the cheat sheets only more up to date because users can submit new codings.

Hello!

So you have to built your own database or is there an existing one anywhere?

When you have the application installed just click the "Get Data" button and it will load the database located on my website. Everything you add to it will be added to the global database, so everyone can see youre codings.

Re: BMW Coding Database

Where were you a year ago when I was using worldlingo and nscdummie to make sense of this stuff.

Thanks I'll play with this

Hello!

That's the way I tried. I get only the message "Unable to connect to any of the specified MySQL hosts"

EDIT
Aaah, the company firewall was the spoilsport. Now I git it - thx a lot

Milkyway are you sure you are connected to the internet with the computer you run BMW Coding Database on?

Otherwise try to disable any anti-virus/firewall and see if this prevents from connecting.
The database is running on a mysql server which use the default 3306 port, maybe you need to allow incoming/outgoing connections to port 3306.

Let me know if this was the issue.

Maybe this can help you get your v4 of the F10 cheat sheet in a better format?

Hello!

@PandaNL
It was my company firwall which blocked the unknown port 3306. I tried it with the mobile hotspot from my iPhone 5 and I got it.

This is an excellent start,

Here are a few enhancement suggestions:

1- add a status column (works, not available, does not work, ...) to record our own testing
2- Add a column to group functionalities together and filter by functionalities (ex.: Lane Departure Warning, video on demand,...) Those functions require more than 1 setting to be active
3- print options would be nice

You are missing a lot of codes that we have in tghe cheat sheet, can you bulk enter them if we provide a MS-Excell file. PM me for my Excel if interested!

Thanks, for the good job!

Guy

Thank you bmwgcyr, printing function is definetly coming and right now i'm trying to find a good way to bulk/group codings.

Bulk import is possible if the columns line up.

For your bulk import, do you use CSV file format. Can you expose your format and I will send you a file with the appropriate format for many other codes.

Secondly, the SUbmit code tab/form is really difficult and tedious to use, would it be possible to just put a single field that we could copy past a CSV line format or any other that you would prefer. Most of us are unsing a spreadsheet Excell or Google docs and we can format any way we want to copy paste line by line in the tool.

Finally, it is a must that you allow an export of the database to either CSV or a known database format. If we want to do coding and we do not have internet access to access the remore DB, your tool may become useless and we will all prefer to maintain our own spreadsheet or tool.

I find your idea extremely good and as a software development manager, this is the kind of initiative I highly encourage in my teams. Having a centralised DB for the entire coding community is a giant step forward for all of us....

But it needs a little polishing before I start using it. For now, my own Excell fits better my needs and for now. And as soon as your tool is ready I will be so happy to drop my spreadsheet.

Thank you very much!

Guy

For the Logo, it is already fine, you could add a BMW logo in the black connector and instead of writing "BMW Coding Database" you can use an acronym with all the lettesrs for "A BMW Coding Database" (ABCD).

Thanks for the input, csv file format will do.

Working on a CSV export for offline use and a print option to print the whole database/ or a selection.
Will re-do the submit tab to make bulk coding easier.

Coding starter information


we started this a year or so ago when we were trying to code our Z4s.

Yes, I was kindly given an advance preview of it before PandaNL posted it on line, and I provided quite a bit of feedback / suggestions, although I received no response back, so I presume they were not well received.

Unfortunately, this does not bring me any closer to v.4 either. When it is ready, I will publish it in Excel format, and if someone wants to import it into the database, that will be great.

Hi Shawn, didn't you get my reply 3 day ago? you're input is very appreciated and will work on someof the suggestions you made.

@Cvaria: Thank you very much for the donation. Is the Z4 sheet listing only function value or am i overlooking things? I don't see any descriptions or values.

At the moment i'm working on the export to csv, and a better submitting system.

Re: BMW Coding Database

Stop using that trash anti-virus/security.
Damn rtv scan is evil.

Seriously though, It probably flipped out because the db wants to go out and get goods & updates.

Add an exception for the database. Look in your norton settings. Make exception for the download location. If you are able to download it, make another exception for the file.

If that fails, just temporarily disable norton.


Hope that works out.

I'm a kaspersky fan but, I'M SURE someone out there hates it too.

Beemurr528: Norton is very annoying, Norton antivirus checks the app in its own database to see if was ever reported safe. Because my app is fairly new it probally doesn't come up in Nortons own database and they block it.

There is probally a report function in Norton to send them my application so they can check it and mark it safe.

There are only 2 connections made to the internet:

1. Checking for newer versions at http://bmwcodingdatabase.com/downloads/updates
2. Loading/making changes to the database located at http://db.bmwcodingdatabase.com
