Just uploaded interim build 35 which adds back in the custom location name option I mistakenly took out when redoing all this.

Works fine except for the thing below as you said.
Thank you, Jody!
The data shown is the data given by Yahoo!.  However, as best I can tell, that wind chill data is not being coverted to Celsius.  Basically, it's a Fahrenheit value no matter if I'm requesting Celsius values.  Of course, I could do the math and fix it, but I've written an email to Yahoo! to see if they'll fix it first.  If they don't, within a fair amount of time, I'll fix it manually.

- Bug?: no more minimize button in titlebar.

Eh? Did you enable the "Do not show taskbar button" option or something?

Indeed I did. Reasoning: there's no need for the taskbar button as long as the window can be brought to front by a single icon click; extremely rarely do I use task switcher (Alt+Tab).
Apparently M$ don't allow a "normal" window style with no taskbar button. Oh well, we can't have it all, can we… But why does it lose the date/time in the window title, in the 'ToolWindow' mode?

One way of keeping the 'minimize to tray' option while in ToolWindow mode is to hook WM_NCRBUTTONDOWN and send the command to minimize the GUI when user right-clicks the titlebar:
; somewhere in autoexec
OnMessage(0xA4, "RClick") ; WM_NCRBUTTONDOWN
; somewhere among functions
;===================
RClick(wP, lP, msg, hwnd)
;===================
{
Global GUI_ID
if (hwnd != GUI_ID)
return
if wP=2 ; HTCAPTION
{
Gui, 1:Minimize
Return 0
}
}

In sWeather's Options dialog, click the button next to the WOEID field for instructions on how to do that.

sWeather has been updated to v1.7.6.  Thanks to all for your testing and patience.  :Thmbsup:   I also received word from Yahoo! that the wind chill reading for Celsius has been fixed.   :up:

Website
v1.7.6 - 2018-01-22
    + Added support for the new Yahoo! Weather API.  The old API was retired on
      2019-01-03.  The new API seems slower than the previous one but I don't
      know if it's because of the new OAuth requirement for this new API or
      something else.  Whatever...it works, so please be patient with it and
      apologies for any inconvenience.
    + Hovering over the "Full forecast", "Radar", and "Powered by Yahoo!" links
      shows their URL in the statusbar.  (Thanks, Drugwash)
    + Right-clicking the "Full forecast", "Radar", and "Powered by Yahoo!" links
      gives the option of copying the URL to the clipboard.
    + Added "Minimize to tray" option.  (Thanks, Drugwash)
    + Added menu option to display raw weather data.
    + Added tooltips to statusbar icons.
    + Option to break location menu into multiple columns.
    * Eliminated dependencies on resources.dll and temp directory.
    - Took out the WOEID search feature because the new API doesn't support that
      currently.  Had to go back to the old method of manually getting the WOEID
      from the URL of a location on the main weather.yahoo.com website.  Yuck,
      what a travesty.  >=[
    ! Right-click clipboard context menu was broken.
    ! Fixed an extra line in one of the tray tooltips.  (Thanks, Drugwash)

I'm having an issue with the time not displaying correctly and the forecast not working. Not sure if this is a known issue? This is running on Windows 8.1 with your newest version of the software. I completely removed my files of the old program and restarted this new program after saving the new settings. I included a screen shot of what I'm seeing and the settings I chose.

Hello, previously my sweather tray icon would show a weather condition icon such as clouds, sun rain, etc. depending on the weather for my location. Now I only see a square box with the temperature in it. Is there a way to show the nicer weather icons instead and not the temperature?

I see now there's a checkbox for the weather condition icon that can be enabled/disabled, but how do I hide the temperature icon? I don't need both (need the space). The drop-down in the settings for temperature doesn't include none and there's no enable/disable checkbox for the temperature. :( The hover info for the condition icon doesn't show the same info (less) as the temp icon

Also the settings GUI button is chopped off at the bottom when using a dpi setting of 125%.

Thanks for getting sWeather working again. :Thmbsup:

@ Mboxer511: You're probably having the same problem that I had (the underlying IE library used to connect to the TimezoneDB site doesn't support the required SSL protocol) so you'd have to untick 'Use https' in the configurations panel to get it work. But first, please go into your Internet Explorer advanced options and make sure TLS 1.2 is enabled (if available); that might get it work properly. IE8 (in my case) doesn't have such option available but disabling HTTPS in sWeather worked.

@ skwire: There's a problem with the GUI icons in XP, noticed it right after you eliminated the resources DLL but thought it might just be a different icon set. Apparently it's a rendering error for the transparent PNGs.
Here's a comparison of the old 1.7.5 GUI versus 1.7.6:
sWeather175vs176.pngRelease: sWeather (tray-based weather app)

Also noticed 'Minimize to tray' is missing from the configuration panel but it does work as such; maybe you made it permanent?
Reminder: date/time still dissapears from titlebar when in TooWindow mode. The tray click is the trigger.
A funny side-effect of the ToolWindow mode: the SysCommand menu still sports a Maximize option which works although it shouldn't, since it's not a resizable window. :)

The rest seems to work as intended. Thank you!

Why does the 'Do not show taskbar button' need to disabled to get the 10-day forecast?
I can enable the buton for a 5-day forecast, but not for 10.

Nevermind, I had to restart sWeather for it to take affect.

Yup, version 1.7.6.2 worked! Forecast and time are now appearing. I also disabled "use https:// (SSL) when possible" just to be safe.
The time of day, in the top of the window, is now shown in 24 hour time (not sunrise/sunset, that is working). Is there a way to revert it back to the 12 hour time format?

Included a screen shot of the new version with settings:

Nevermind I fixed the time issue not appearing in 12 hour format in the title bar.  Had to change the "Date/time format" from:
dddd, MMMM d, H:mm tt
TO
dddd, MMMM d, h:mm tt

It originally had an uppercase 'H' which denotes 24 hour time and needed to be changed to a lowercase 'h'

I'm having an issue with the time not displaying correctly and the forecast not working.

As Drugwash mentioned, for the time issue, try disabling the "Use HTTPS when possible" setting.  For the forecast issue, thank you for testing and I'm glad the interim build fixed things.  I've included those changes in the v1.1.7 mainline release below.

There's a problem with the GUI icons in XP, noticed it right after you eliminated the resources DLL but thought it might just be a different icon set. Apparently it's a rendering error for the transparent PNGs.

They're actually icons but I tested with PNG files and got the same results.  I can't win here.   :(  I really don't want to go back to extra loose files if I can help it.

Also noticed 'Minimize to tray' is missing from the configuration panel but it does work as such; maybe you made it permanent?

No, haha.  I mistakenly deleted that line when adjusting the Options GUI.   :-[  It's back in the v1.7.7. build.

Reminder: date/time still dissapears from titlebar when in TooWindow mode. The tray click is the trigger.

Still working on this.  Sometimes it goes away, sometimes it stays.  There's really no rhyme or reason to it.

Nevermind I fixed the time issue not appearing in 12 hour format in the title bar.  Had to change the "Date/time format" from:

Yep, that's why I made it completely configurable.   :up:

Website & Download
2019-01-23 - v1.7.7
! Fixed speed issue when getting weather data.  It was my fault and not the new API.
! Fixed 5 & 10 day forecast data not showing for some users.
! "Minimize to tray" option is back.  I must have erroneously deleted it in the last build.  (Thanks, Drugwash)
! Pressure reading wasn't correct for imperial values.
