I am new with Arduino & esp8266 and using the below code to upload data to ThinkSpeak. Everything works fine, but now I want to retrieve some data back from ThinkSpeak. Can some one help in developing the code for retrieval?

// Using XXXXX here as my channel is private

From what I am checking, I have to use the above GET string to get the fields data. But I don't know how to create the request string.

Help would be appreciated. Thanks

// Uploading data to Thinkspeak<br />uploadData() { String apiKey = "ESDS8678890SDDS"; String myData = "45.5"; // example of data to send if (espClient.connect(server,80)) { String postStr = apiKey; postStr +="&amp;field1="; postStr += String(myData); postStr += " "; espClient.print("POST /update HTTP/1.1 "); espClient.print("Host: "); espClient.print("Connection: close "); espClient.print("X-THINGSPEAKAPIKEY: "+apiKey+" "); espClient.print("Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded "); espClient.print("Content-Length: "); espClient.print(postStr.length()); espClient.print(" "); espClient.print(postStr); Serial.print(postStr); Serial.print("My Data: "); Serial.print(myData); Serial.print(" "); } espClient.stop(); }<br /><br />

If you just want to retrieve the last value for a channel you could use the official thingspeak/arduino library. That works fine. But if you also would like the date/time for the last value I don't think you could use that library. I'm having the same problem, I would like to get the timestamp for the last value as well.
