Weather Monitor Workover

Weather Monitor Workover
I use a vertical taskbar and put some bigger icons into the weather monitor plugin (they now have 80x80 px).
Now I want to change the location of the data, but only found out the last number of the rect gives out the size.
I tried various numbers to change but without any satisfying results.
Which values do I have to change and to what (higher or lower) in order to get the humidity and the conditions
under the icon and maybe have them in the same line?

PS: Here's my actual ini:
[options]
name=FULL 32
author=TrueSoft
email=support@tsoftcentral.com
url=http://www.truelaunchbar.com
version = 2

[general]
Background=bg.png
iconPos = 0 0

[DataSlot0]
param = Temperature
SkinText = 0
rect = 0 0 30 18
LabelType = short
LabelRect = 0 0 10 10
font=SegoeUI
bold=1
italic=0
align=left
ShowUnits = 1


[DataSlot1]
param = Humidity
SkinText = 0
rect = 0 21 30 31
font=SegoeUI
bold=1
italic=0
align=left
ShowUnits = 1

[DataSlot2]
param = Condition
SkinText = 0
rect = 0 28 100 38
font=SegoeUI
bold=1
italic=0
align=left

[default icons]

Clouds=clouds.png
Lightning=storm.png
mix=mix.png
PartlyCloudy=pclouds2.png
Rain=rain2.png
Snow=snow.png

Hello PacksonJollock and welcome to the True Launch Bar forum.

Usually the first number indicates the start position measured (in pixels) from the left.

The second number is the start position measured (in pixels) from the top.

The third number is the stop position measured from the left.

The fourth number is the stop position measured from the top.

You can use this information and experiment around more now. Try rect = 0 72 45 60 for the Humidity and rect = 20 72 45 60 for the Conditions. Please post your progress and a screenshot of the final attempt. If you need further assistance please do not hesitate to post any questions. Hope this helps.

I must say, it is very tricky and hard pixel work to get it arranged right.
I now use two WeatherMonitor for Weather Today & Tomorrow with the icons replaced. BTW, I had to put in a spacer with roundabout 100 px and arrange the width of my windows taskbar in order to have the next seperator line lower than right through the now bigger icons...
The plugins should each have an adjustable space wihtout putting in a spacer... Is there another solution for this?

Now here's first the edited ini, I cut out the humidity cause I really don't care bout them. My .ini text is now:
[options]
name=FULL 32
author=TrueSoft
email=support@tsoftcentral.com
url=http://www.truelaunchbar.com
version = 2

[general]
Background=bg.png
iconPos = 0 0

[DataSlot0]
param = Temperature
SkinText = 0
rect = 0 90 30 70
LabelType = short
LabelRect = 0 0 10 10
font=SegoeUI
bold=1
italic=0
align=left
ShowUnits = 1


[DataSlot1]
param = Condition
SkinText = 0
rect = 0 99 75 89
font=SegoeUI
bold=1
italic=0
align=left


[default icons]
Sun=sun.png
Clouds=clouds.png
Lightning=storm.png
mix=mix.png
PartlyCloudy=pclouds2.png
Rain=rain2.png
Snow=snow.png
[wunderground.ini]
Overcast=sun.png

and it looks like this... should it be made public as a skin for weathermonitor?

Congratulations on your promotion to Junior Plugin Skinner! Keep at it and one day soon you will be teaching us how to do it! It is a good thing to master this particular item as it is one of the more difficult before one learns exactly how to do it. The twin WM's looks good side-by-side.
