yep use them at your will.
Bugger re charges, figured that may be the case.
Oh well I still love the program and it's the best I have found as I wanted one so I could see the image with weather as in sun or cloud and yours does all that very nicely, thanks.
Cheer,
Pete

Medium version attached. Slightly smaller font size meant that there was no need to have to align them vertically so they are all uniform and a lot tidier.

I had a thought to make them different colors depending on the temp eg red over say 30, orange from 30 to 20 then blue from 20 down to -20 or whatever but then thought it may not be readable on some taskbars.
But if they were done in a reversed colored box with white text and changing bg color that would work.
An idea. But I'm not capable of doing the box version..lol
Maybe I can inspire someone else?
Cheer,
Pete

Love the app. One of the few weather apps that provides customisable tray icons. I have one problem though. I've installed sWeather on Windows 10 and configured it to have both the condition and temp icons in the tray. This works fine until I restart the PC and then it only shows the temp icon. The condition icon is hidden and when I turn it back on in the Win 10 notifications settings it only appears again until I restart the PC. Any suggestions as to why this is happening?  FYI if I turn off the temp icon in sWeather then the condition icon always appears in the system tray.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Ok understand.  Is it possible there is some coding issue with the Shell_NotifyIcon API calls regarding unique identifiers for each icon? 

Just a suggestion - I'm obviously not across how this is coded.  As a previous post says, Weather Watcher is able to display two icons without any issue
so there may be an example somewhere.

strange. We had 2 blackouts tonight causing PC to reboot and each time the tray icons came back in the taskbar as they should after reboot.
I haven't tested it with a normal reboot as yet though as my pc is never shut down

That is strange. I tried this just now by hard resetting my Virtualbox instance, but the condition icon still does not appear in the taskbar upon startup.

ok rebooted and it still works as it should.
I ran this script a few days back to clear and reset icons.
Maybe it will work for you..

Yes I've seen that registry hack before. That was the 1st thing I tried on my main machine back when I discovered the issue. There's also an option in CCleaner to clear the 'Tray Notifications Cache'. I had no success using these clean options.

I just tried the 'Reset_Notification_Area_Icons_Cache.bat' in my VirtualBox Win7 instance. The condition tray icon still refuses to 'stick' after logout/login.

well all I can say is that it's working for me now...
If it does change after other reboots I will let this thread know

You could try the SysTrayIconsManage tool I created for NANY2016.

I appreciate the recommendation for SysTrayIconsManage. It is certainly a workaround, but I hope skwire can figure out how to solve the tray issue.

Does Ath's workaround work for you?

I hope skwire can figure out how to solve the tray issue.

Unfortunately, I do not know how to fix it.  I've researched, tried a few things that didn't work, and put it aside.  I realise that seems terribly apathetic, but please understand that I write freeware simply as a hobby when I have spare time.  Moreover, I don't use the Windows "hide icons" feature.  That is, I enable the "Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar" option and use PS Tray Factory to manage tray icons instead.

No, I didn't try out SysTrayIconsManage. From reading the description it could workaround the issue. I just am not motivated to use workarounds such as this. By the way, thank you for trying to resolve the tray icon issue. I just wanted to do my part and report the issue to you. I understand completely about freeware, I'm sure this is a very time-consuming thing to take on  :)

Perhaps make the main windows a little larger so that the status update doesn't overwrite most of the day's weather forecast.

See attachment.

Thanks,

That's very strange as the window should, based on which settings you have chosen, look like one the screenshots on this page: https://skwire.dcmem...om/fp/?page=sweather

Does sWeather look like your screenshot every time you start it up?

Thanks for the update.
Looks like the API change also broke the timing on sunrise/sunset since they miss leading zeroes.
Also, is it possible to set up those times to show 24 hour clock?
I have already set it up in the prefs, but it affects only the title bar.

I am interested in this because I used to work on a high vacuum system and we used Millimeters of Mercury as the unit of pressure.  Before putting anything onto the vacuum pump I would bring the manifold pressure down to 5 X 10 to the negative 5th mm of mercury.  I just assumed millibars were equivalent but I was wrong. As shown on the page linked below, one millibar is a tad more than 3/4 of a mm mercury(0.75218.)  The page shows how to convert between them.

Everything seems to have stopped in the last couple of days. I'm seeing blank icons and null data on the bigger displays for all locations.

The Yahoo weather service API is most likely down or disturbed :( Not much what we, or Skwire, can do about that.

Ath is right; the API is down at the moment.
