Does this work in the UK? It asks for a zip code, but we don't have zip codes!

Help

It plays the ani for approx 15 seconds before it locks me up, but seeing that ani for 15 seconds is wild! hehe
Martin what do you think it is? I shut down my two widgets you made so that they would not interfere w/ this object but still it wont work. it works for a few seconds and then completely freezes up my machine and I have to do a hard boot.

Tarinuk try typing the city first then a coma followed by a space and your country...

osopolar: i had the same problem but updated to the latest beta fixed the issue.

martin: i love this animated weather but i noticed that there are no night time images like your other weather objects. in your older weather objects i get a moon or a moon w/clouds, rain, etc at night. is this b/c there are no night time icons int he package or b/c of the weather site you're pulling the data from? if you can add the night time graphics that would be great. i gotten used to seeing the moon graphics at night rather than a sun.

Excellent! I got your animated widget working by completely removing the static one off my system (which I hated to do cuz I like the nightime images you had on that, however I wanted the animation better) can you add the nightime images to both your ani weather dx and widget objects?

I installed the widget into a diff directory rather than default since it may have been going into the other unzipped widget folder not sure, then rebooted my machine turned off DX and then relaunched the widget by itself and it seems to have no conflict and run perfectly (though I can only run one instance rather than two of this animated widget which I used to have two occurances running of your static one, so that I can have weather on two diff locations on my desktop)

Outstanding work Martin "Thank you!"

yeah. Miss Mannlister, i updated just now and the ram issue seems fixed ... must have been quite a change in 2.19k to 2,19m ...

must admit though, i'm checking out other apps since this ... don't like things messing about my pc like that ... avedesk seems quite good, lacks the complication of dx, and .. its free !!

osopolar: i like avedesk as well! only problem is tha it seems very flakey, it crashes as i'm config'ing it a lot. also, there aren't very many widgets for it so it's very limited as opposed to DX which has a ton of nice objects.

yeah ur right in some ways. Miss Mannlister ... although Avedesk is just growing now, compared to how long dx has existed .. what i like about avedesk is 1.01mb ram usage or less, and for now, has never crashed once on me or messed up my pc like dx2 has done by way of lock ups, etc ....

Fixed problem with the "Sunny" state which doesn't actually animate. Missed it due to the fact that I'm in the UK and this state doesn't occur!

Victor Nicola: That comment doesn't really help! What problems are you having?

If you guys don't tell him what the problem is you'll never get the object working right and his objects and widgets are out of this world!
Doreen is a happy camper...
"Thank you Martin" they prob had conflict w/ this object and prior weather objects they had on their machines as was the case for me.

Martin: Works great, but every time I reboot my computer it has forgotten my home city and gone back to...wherever in Michigan or someplace. Anyway to make it remember my home city?

No date time settings. It SHOULD retain the settings in a file called weather.ini in your dx directory. Will change to use the registry.

Oh, and Doreen, thanks

That would be "No night time"

Comment #19 Saturday, September 04, 2004 10:50 PM
I think what dthree36 is trying to say is the same thing that Doreen said earlier, that this is a marvelous widget ( the animations make the little kid in me go "ooooo..." ) but there are no icons for the night time, such as a moon to show that it's night, like the sun shows that it's daytime. Currently, it's 10:45 p.m. where I live, and there's a bright shiny sun displayed on my desktop. I'd love to keep using this widget, but without the nightime icons i'll be forced to go back to the static icons.
ThanQ.
