Hi, Dirge, and welcome to DonationCoder.
1) When the mouse cursor is placed over the current Wind readout in the main window, the conversion message in the status bar at the bottom of the window says “Converted visibility: [...]” instead of “Converted wind: [...]”, though it does give the properly converted wind speed.
Nice catch. I'll fix this.
2) When the text message (“PM Thunderstorms,” “Few Showers,” “Scattered Thunderstorms,” etc.) in the extended forecast box for a given day is more than two lines/rows of text long, the additional lines are cut off and can’t be read; all that can be seen is the top two or three rows of pixels of the third line of text. Perhaps a change could be made to show the complete text in the status bar when mousing over such truncated text(?).
I'll see what I can do.
3) When the main window is displayed and the mouse cursor is off to the side (not hovering over the window), the message in the status bar doesn’t always display “Conditions as of: [date & time of last Yahoo! update]” (as I suspect it should); it often displays the Converted temp of some random day of the week.
This requires a bit of explanation. For sWeather to change the statusbar text like it does, it captures the WM_MOUSEMOVE message. What you're seeing is when you move the mouse away from the main form fast enough that it doesn't capture all those messages (which tells the app where the cursor is). Once the mouse it outside the main form, it no longer receives those messages. I suppose I could put a timer on there to watch for such but that seems like overkill, IMO, for this issue.
4) The “Feels like” temperature displayed on the main window is always the same as the actual current temperature (for all locations) and does not reflect the “Feels like” temperature on the Yahoo! Full forecast Web page.
I've noticed this as well. Unfortunately, the Yahoo! RSS feeds powering sWeather don't have quite the same data as their Full Forecast pages. You'd think they would...but they don't.
1) The ancient mariner in me would like to see latitude and longitude displayed in degrees° minutes' seconds" N/S E/W format.
2) A Moon Phase indicator in the main window, preferably an icon with text (e.g., “Waxing Crescent”), but text-only would get the job done too.
3) A Precipitation indicator in the main window showing the amount of precipitation received in the last 24 hours or since midnight (or both). The Yahoo! Full forecast Web page doesn’t seem to show this info, so I don’t know if this info is available in its feed, but the associated Weather Channel page does provide this info.
1) I can add an option for this. To save me some research time, is there an easy way to convert the current data to this format?
2) The Yahoo! RSS feed does not contain this data.
3) The Yahoo! RSS feed does not contain this data.
I like the simple and efficient nature of sWeather, especially as I have an old, out-of-date computer that doesn't handle lots of fancy graphics too well. Thanks for going to the trouble of providing the program.
You're very welcome. Thanks for giving it a thorough tryout.
