Me Me how can I bring a graphic into weather monitor, here is a snippet

<td colspan="2" valign="top" align="center">
<a href="/currentweather/radartwc.jsp?code=050"><img src="" border="0"></a>

Now if I set up to find <a href="/currentweather/radartwc.jsp?code=050"><img src I can't get it to load the graphic..... no matter how I hold my toungue ???

- Q Section - 02-27-2004

Parsed graphics are not yet supported in the Universal Data Fetcher/WM. Yuri may be working on this feature. Smile

Bummer!............ thanks anyway Wink

I didn't realize there was so much useful information out there!

I am still working on the VB script to gather information from multiple sources (can be just about anything) for the weather monitor. While still very buggy, here is an example of the output of the script. As you can see, there is a lot of information, but the file can be accessed by as many plugins as necessary. Smile

djmorgan, this thread may give you a start on getting your image into a toolbar. Not a perfect solution, but Yuri seems keen to implement this, and so I'm sure he'll make sure it will work in menu's, too!

Twilight/Sunset Times (displays Morning Twilight, Sunrise, Sunset, Evening Twilight)
Mosquito Activity Forecast (displays Mosquito Forecast for some areas)
Flu Activity (displays confirmed flu activity local and national)

It would be nice it there was a plugin that showed the computer name . I would think it would be easy enought. I was going to try but someone else may have already or almost already done it.

- Dracula - 09-22-2004

Erm, how often does your computer name change? Press Win+Pause and choose 'Computer Name', or write it down on a piece of paper, or use a batch file with "echo %COMPUTERNAME%"... A separate plugin to show a (semi) static label just doesn't seem really useful to me... ???

However, of course it could be implemented in a general system information plugin, which would be like Process Viewer, or ToDo list: a single button which opens a menu when clicked, and in that menu are (user selectable) fields containing various system properties, like computer name, current ip-address, screen resolution, windows version, processor type, current user, etc...

:p 15 minutes and sysinfo for Media Control is ready Wink
Place dll into players folder inside media control installation and skin into skins folder. Create Media Control and select player "System Info" and skin "iTuned Computer Name". Just one more what MC can do Big Grin

- Dracula - 09-22-2004

So actually Media Control behaves like a host for any DLL...? Wow, that's pretty impressive (both the Media Control and the fast response)... Wink

It works fine here, btw...

Quote:o actually Media Control behaves like a host for any DLL...?
Not any. Here is MC SDK But this is easier then full TLB plugin Wink
