With regard to the images, they're only conceptual right now! The little white ball is either a different pointer or if some functionality is built into Weather Monitor to record wind direction history, it could be an average windspeed indicator. What do you think, Yuri? Could we have wind-speed history facility in WM? Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

The compromise we have to make at the moment with regard to scraping data from the web, is that there isn't yet a mechanism to transform data. A reasonable interim fix is to change the alignment in the skin.ini so that the data is left aligned.

Thanks guys for some great work.

Regarding the moon skin, is it possible to update the moon monitor to be able to show more than just the 8 phases it does now? Maybe the number of images could be a parameter. The calculations are simple enough it seems a waste to download this info from the net.

Here's what my TLB looks like now. Big Grin

Hello BlueHeaven
Exactly which weather page are you parsing? Is your most right-hand column of the Weather Monitor actually what on the first line, Maximum Temp, Minimum Temp and time observed?

It looks great.

I use wunderground


The right hand column from top to bottom is: Temp at Denver Airport (since wunderground does not have UV information), Normal High, Normal Low, and Observation time. Figured that made the best use of the slots available.

I've written a Moon Monitor based on Weather Monitor. The only trouble is, I'm having difficulty finding a provider that gives me all the information I'm interested in. Any links anyone can suggest, I'd be appreciative of!

However, it can run NOW off sites such as Wunderground. You'll lose the tooltip info the TLBMoon plugin gives you, and there's no Zodiac, but you will get all phases of the moon (even collected 3 different sets, so you can colour co-ordinate!)

Great work on the new skins! Very soon, my TLB will outgrow my monitor. Big Grin

Attached below is some modifications I made, which I will upload if there is interest. Basically I made all of HorusUK's skins transparent, did my own weather icons based on the BBC icons, and created a new background for the wind monitor. I also did a clock and keystate skin which I will upload as well.

Enjoy!
Rick.

I uploaded all except the Moon skin since I don't have all the moon pictures done. I don't use the Sun skin, so maybe someone can make a transparent version of that one. In my transparent "DK Weather Ultra" skin, I included HorusUK's weather icons along with my own. Here are mine in case you are interested.

Superb job BlueHeaven! Looks very nice. Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

Incidentally, what's the name of the skin you're using for the rest of your setup?

HorusUK,

I'm not sure I follow you. If you are talking about what XP theme I use, I use "Cool XP3" available at http://www.coolxp.de.vu/.

You have to patch the uxtheme.dll file to useit. Instructions are on the web site.

Rick.

Here is your screenshot of DK Weather Text. If you notice the vertical size - it is alright. The TLB Clock plugin - DK Digital skin is not imaging correctly when the TLB skins is set to default. We usually use a custom skin so then the DK Digital seems to image correctly. The tooltip for DK Weather Text images correctly.
