Thanks so much for your response - maybe had I read more of the Forum, I could have saved both of us some time!  Thanks again for sWeather.

You're very welcome and no worries.  I'm glad you find sWeather useful.

Thank you for the report.  It should be fixed in the latest version below:

Website & Download
v1.8.2 - 2019-03-01
    ! "Feels like" temps of zero degrees would display as N/A.  (Thanks, mhh)


Thank you for the quick improvement. I can confirm that it works correct now.

Hey guy,
    I found that the latest version 1.8.2 could not show selected city's name when I hovered my mouse on any of the tray icons. I am very sure that
 previous version (for example version 1.7.x)  can show different information when hovering on tray icon including selected city's name. Please bring it back!

Hi, WPYS, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.

I found that the latest version 1.8.2 could not show selected city's name when I hovered my mouse on any of the tray icons. I am very sure that previous version (for example version 1.7.x)  can show different information when hovering on tray icon including selected city's name. Please bring it back!

I took the liberty to modify the script a little in regard to tray icon display and a (fake) tray tooltip.
It is an older build based on v1.7.9.1 and is only a proof of concept. It does feature a few code fixes aimed at x64 compatibility but there's still a lot of work to be done to achieve that goal. There are also a few bugs related to the fake tooltip positioning and timing, at startup and while changing options.

Attached is a zip archive containing only the source code - no executable. Code has been tested using AutoHotkey v1.1.28.0 Unicode.

While I appreciate your interest in improving sWeather,  I do not appreciate you decompiling the code, making changes, and then posting it publicly.  My programs are not open source. Please respect that, and stop.

Yeah, I know: no good deed remains unpunished. I removed the attachment. Nobody dowloaded it anyway.

Decompiling someone's source and reposting it doesn't seem to fall under the definition of good deed to me.

I think the place to start from -- the first thing that needs to be said -- is that drugwash was trying to help and improve the program.  And that furthermore, he was making the non-trivial effort share his improvements in a respectful way with the author (our wonderful skwire) and the rest of us.

So in my humble opinion, the first thing that needs to be said to drugwash is "thank you".

After that, it's skwire's right to ask that drugwash not share/post modified versions of his software.  I can understand why that would be disappointing to drugwash, who was just trying to contribute some improvements to a program he obviously likes.

Most of the people on this site are fans of open source software -- coding and using it.  Many of the coders here release some, if not all, of their source code as open source and participate in open source software.  People who are sharing their programming skills here on this site are doing so largely because of the enjoyment we get in having others use our software.  But many of us here also have some software which we have, for various reasons, decided not to open source. For whatever reason, it is ultimately the coder's prerogative. 

Anyway, this is just my long way of saying to drugwash that I (we) appreciate the good deed you were trying to do, and don't want you to walk away with bad feelings about this -- rather I hope you will stick around and continue to participate, offer improvements of other sorts, and feel welcome here.  We are nothing if not a home for unusual people with unusual skills :up: :-*
