Awesome.. Someone should translate to english...
Comment #3 Friday, September 12, 2003 5:25 AM
Looks like Judge's object. Check the script of that object and translation should be easy.
Comment #4 Friday, September 12, 2003 5:32 AM
look like judge's object... but the script is based on _Martin_'s international weather object!
i just wanted to have a *working* object (=-Martin_) with a look and feel that i like (=Judge)

Tried Tel Aviv, London, Los Angeles... none of those major cities worked... stayed on Duesseldorf, Germany... DELETED!

look at
to find right spelling for cities/countries
Comment #7 Thursday, November 13, 2003 4:58 AM
ok, for those of you who are still trying to find the city/country code, go to http://www.weather.com , click on the "world" tab at the top, then enter your city and country as asked in the box. Hit return, and in the querystring (URL) look for the section similar to the one for dusseldorf, should be right in the beginning. Copy just that and paste it into the input box for the object and all should be fine!

Nice work jotwee!

btw, this is the URL/ querystring I was talking about:


where the bold text is the part you need!

Any way to get this to work in Farenheit?
Comment #10 Thursday, November 13, 2003 4:52 PM

replace line 238 with this:
http.Open "GET", "http://xoap.weather.com/weather/local/" & zipcode & "?cc=*&dayf=5&ut=F&unit=mi&rand=" & Rnd, False
Comment #11 Thursday, November 13, 2003 8:21 PM
Dragonfire: when I looked at the script that is in fact what it said. What am I doing wrong - I really like this but I am totally ignorant in converting C to F
Comment #12 Friday, November 14, 2003 10:27 AM
They're small changes, I highlighted them this time. If yours does in fact look like mine then I don't have a clue whats wrong.

http.Open "GET", "http://xoap.weather.com/weather/local/" & zipcode & "?cc=*&dayf=5&ut=C&unit=m&rand=" & Rnd, False

http.Open "GET", "http://xoap.weather.com/weather/local/" & zipcode & "?cc=*&dayf=5&ut=F&unit=mi&rand=" & Rnd, False

Can anyone tell me why it works properly at first but as soon as i save my theme it goes bonkers
Comment #14 Friday, November 14, 2003 2:58 PM
Great - that worked! How do you make the change permanent - there is no save button on the script editor
Comment #15 Friday, November 14, 2003 7:28 PM

when you close the script editor, it saves it automatically. Or at least it seems to for me.

When you click the apply button in the main DX2 properties box, it should be permanent.


What do you mean "bonkers"?

Endlich mal deutsches Wetter.
Comment #17 Monday, November 17, 2003 9:59 AM
I love this object. But I'm new to scripting DX.
I'm running this on my laptop which isn't always online so is there anyway to change this object so it only updates if the internet is available? Thus keeping the last settings and not throwing a script error?
Comment #18 Friday, November 21, 2003 12:08 AM
Great stuff
However, I have a prob though I wanted m/s for the windspeed (instead of km/h).
I thought I solved it with editning line 70: DesktopX.Object("cc_scroll").Text = "Wind speed: " & round(Object.PersistStorage("wind_s")*1000/3600,0)) & " m/s"
This works, until the windspeed is zero (0), then I got an error.
I don't know so much in Visual Basic, any suggestions?
Greatings from Stocholm, Seden!!

To get your zipcode go to http://weather.com and enter your city in the searchbar click the correct result and check the URL.
