DL Tasks

As part of WiiConnect24, channels have the ability to register “tasks” permitting occasional download of any sort of file. For example, the Forecast Channel uses download tasks to update its information when idle. Historically the Wii Shop Channel changed its banner via download tasks.

You use a wiiDLTask object to interface with WC24 and manage tasks directly from JavaScript.

var dlTask = new wiiDlTask();
