Correction of missing png in weather gadget

Updated Weather Gadget with The Weather Channel

No more bugs, no more blue sky by night :)

Setting is more easier, you only have to edit the ZipCode and the name of your city

--------------------------------------------------------------
This is the english version of my Vista Rainbar for Rainmeter...

Hope there is no translation error.

11 gadgets, more than 50 skins, weather for 3 cities, and much more.

Please read carefully the "READ ME" for an optimal use, and excuse my bad english...

Enjoy

Thanx again to halfwayglad [link] for permitting me to use his pictures.

Finally the perfect sidebar!! No bugs and aggravation like in Thoosie's version. I had even download Google's Desktop just so I could have the sidebar that comes with it, but it's such a memory hog, this is perfect!! Thanks!

Hi

Edit the gadget (right clic it, then Skin Menu/Edit Skin) and set USNV0049 for ZIP code.

English V3 will be released in a few days

I really don't understand.

Here you can see the result on my computer : [link]

Are you sure your connexion has no problem, does the RSSfeeder gadget work ?

Perhaps your firewall doesn't allow Rainmeter to connect to the web ?

Do you use a modem or a router ? Is your net connexion permanent ?

OK
You should uninstall and reinstall Rainmeter, then be sure you find webparser.dll in program files\Rainmeter\Plugins

I've no more idea :(

My mind, the Weather Channel had a bug.

I've tested Fresno, CA (USCA0406 for the ZipCode) and it works perfectly today

Your weather is very hot ;)

I think i somehow managed to fix the show desktop thingy.

So now if you can just tell me a way to keep the slideshow on hold on some image, it would be great :)

Glad you found what you wanted

What did you you do to fix it, I'm interested ?

shockw4ve Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2007
Well .. firstly i selected the Transparent Sidebar and not the Black or "Black to transparent". Then i set all other gadgets as "Stay topmost" and set the sidebar as "On Desktop" .. later i set all the gadgets to 'On Desktop' and it worked. The only thing now is that when i update any of my gadget (i.e: changing it's skin .. updating the news feed .. or updating a sticky) i have to maxamize/minimize a window. But since i dint kept any gadget which i have to update regularly .. i dont mind it :)

Also, since this sidebar is a transparent one.. even if i it comes over the gadgets its fine for me. (though to update any of the gadget i again have to maximize/minimize a window .. but that isn't really much of a trouble for me to do).

Your solution to integrate the sidebar within the wallpaper is also really nice! but like i said i'm using the transparent one .. and it works just fine. All my concern was when i clicked 'show desktop' the items would disappear completely .. which isn't the case now .. so im happy! :)

Thanks again for this wonderful creation mate!

And one more question.. can i keep the slideshow on "hold" instead of cycling through images?
Reply
:icongavatx:
Gavatx Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2007   Interface Designer
No problem

In the .ini file, you can set "update" to an enormous number (60000 = 1 min, so 600000 = 10 min, and 100000000000 = ...)

However I think the must is to create a new skin, with the picture you want as background, and after :

[MeterX]
Meter=IMAGE
ImageName=frame.png

Feel easy to ask me help if you need

shockw4ve Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2007
That sounds really reasonable! I will try that out!

Awesome mate.

Just one question.

When i click the 'Show Desktop' Icon from my quicklaunch (or right click-show the desktop from task bar) I don't see the Rainmeter at all.

Only when i again maxamize/minimize a window it stays visible.

How to fix this problem?

Thanks in advance!

I know this problem.

The only real "solution" I found is to integrate the background of the sidebar on wallpaper with Photoshop, then set all gadgets to "on desktop"

I know it isn't very practical, but nothing better seems exist

Bonjour,

The update is done ;)

I set Chapel Hill instead of New York, so you can use it without editing.

I forgot to update english weather gadget. I apologize and I bet I'll do it this week end, probably tomorrow (for my timezone) :)

It's much better and easier to configure, you'll only have to edit the .ini file and set USNC0120 for your city's ZIP Code, then refresh

What a fantastic sidebar! Thank you for sharing your talent.

I've been trying to edit the weather.ini file for my city...but I'm not getting any data other than the city name. Could you upload a file for Chicago,IL (60637)? Thanks again for your time and effort.

InCREDIBLE! I have been looking for WEEKS for a good Vista Sidebar emulation; I must say this is gorgeous! I was wondering if you could send me a weather file for Dallas, GA, USA (30132). I'm having a bit of a hard time changing the .ini file myself...

Hi, thanx, I'm glad you enjoy ;)

Download this : [link]

Then close Rainmeter, put Weather.ini in C:/Program Files/Rainmeter/Skins/GadgetsEnglish/Weather and Weather+.ini in .../Weather+

Accept the replacement, restart Rainmeter and enjoy...

Hi and thanx for comment,

You have to edit the .ini files as explained in the Read Me, and replace the url's with yours

If you have problems to do this, just tell me what city you want to show and I'll send you modified files
