[solved] Weather Monitor Clear 16 skin bug?
Hi I am trying to get the Clear 16 skin for Weather Monitor to display both the Temp and the Conditions. But it will not show the Conditions. Anyone know why?

That skin.ini file has no provisions for displaying the Conditions parameter but...........if you open the skin.ini file in the Clear 16 folder you can add the folowing after the [DataSlot0] section:
Code:
[DataSlot3]
param = Condition
SkinText = 0
rect = 0 28 68 38
font=Verdana
bold=1
italic=0
align=left

This goes before the [default icons] section. If you wish to change the colour of the Conditions then add this line after the align=left:
color = 0 0 255
or change to whichever colour you prefer.
Let us know how you get along.

I did what you said but it is hidden because the taskbar is not big enough. I would like the conditions icon right next to the temp and the same size.

Could someone here make a new skin that would display the Temp and the conditions that are the same size as the Clear 16 skin? And also display a sun when its a clear day and rain when its raining an so on. Also would like the option to chance the color of the temp display.

If someone could do this I would be greatful!

Sorry - we posted a correction. Please change the [DataSlot1] to [DataSlot3] and save changes and then go to Properties (of Weather Monitor) and hit OK. To change the colour of the Temp display simply add color = 0 0 255 after the line that says ShowUnits = 1 under [DataSlot0].

Try this as a whole skin.ini file. This is the same information as was posted above.
Code:

unitsAPA = hPa.png
unitsATM = atm.png
unitsPSI = psi.png
unitsINHG = inHg.png
unitsMMHG = mmHg.png
unitsPERCENT = percent.png
iconPos = 0 3

[DataSlot0]
param = CUSTOM
SkinText = 1
rect = 19 5 56 19
align=left
ShowUnits = 1
color = 0 0 255

[DataSlot3]
param = Condition
SkinText = 0
rect = 0 28 68 38
font=Verdana
bold=1
italic=0
align=left
color = 0 0 255

First let's work on the Temp colour. What colour would you like?

Change the file in both places so that it says
color = 255 255 0
You can use this page for all your colour needs/codes. For the ini files use the RGB colours.
