You do have the icons folder in your Clear 16 folder, right?

This is the clear 16 folder I think the icon folder is missing? Where do I get it?

It seems you may not have the icons folder present. It should be something like
C:\Program Files\TrueLaunchBar\plugins\weathermon\skins\Clear 16\icons
If it is not there put it there. File below.

I am happy to report that you have fixed both of my problems! Smile Thanks so much.

Just 2 more things for some reason now that I changed the color of the temp from black to yellow the font seems to be a little smaller. Anyway to make it a little bigger? Also now that the conditions are working is there anywat to add new icons and replace the ones i do not like? Thanks again you have been such a great help.

You can change the text sizing in the plugin by changing the values in the rect = parameter. A guide for this is:

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 play a little with these values to try your hand at it. If you need further assistance with the size please post in this thread. Icons can be added from anywhere but must be in a .png format and at the size you prefer to display. Merely substitute the icons already present in the icons folder being sure to maintain the same icon names as are currently there.

Ok I like the icons from the Weather16 skin! If I were to move all of them to the Clear 16 folder would that work? Some of them have diffrent names. And also has more icons. Is there something I could change in the skin.ini file so it would be able to read all of the Weather 16 icons and still use the Temp display from the Clear 16 skin?

Yes you can use the icons from the other file but first they need to be converted into 16x16 size. Please find the zip file below. Just unzip in the Weather 16\icons folder and click "Yes" to replace the older icons and you are set. We have not checked them for proper working but you can post your results here.

Standby for a provider file for The Weather Channel for your area. Here it is. Place this file in your C:\Program Files\TrueLaunchBar\plugins\weathermon\providers file and then right-click on the Weather Monitor and select Properties and re-select the new Provider. Let us know how it goes.
