T-Clock / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download)
« on: September 26, 2020, 07:04 AM »
That's the latest version.  No activity since late 2018, but ti's a great program just like it is.  I have not discovered any show-stopping bugs or problems.  It's really quite nice!
[...] The author of the new version will not diminish the original author. [...]
You get me wrong... Stoic Joker is a small fry, I'm a koi carp!
But seriously, the update check and dialog was entirely done by me, so it doesn't have anything to do with that.
100% my oddity.

However, the newer dialog currently looks like this:
[ Invalid Attachment ]
( which you can actually get already if you download the (currently stable) nightly: )

I currently have 2.4.4#492-rc installed.  Is this the stabler release as compared to the nightly build which you state as stable and will it ever be moved out of nightly to the normal releases?

If you do try it out, please let me know if it works properly for you.

Everything looks good and working fine now on W7 W8.1 and W10. Thanks for the fixes and thanks for adding the icon selection option. I appreciate that.

No big deal, but the old symptom of the missing time/date in the title bar is back. Close the GUI and then open it again from the tray icon and the GUI title bar doesn't show anything until you manually use the refresh button. I assume the way this was fixed previously was to continuously check/update with the time server which IMHO was a bad idea. Do you not have any control of the GUI when launched from the icon and can you not just issue a single manual refresh after launching?

Seems to only happen on W10. I don't see this happening on Win7. Will check W8.1 in a minute.
Win8.1 also shows this symptom.

This should fix it.  The TimezoneDB API should only get queried when the main window is activated/focused.  Thank you for reporting this bug.

Okay, that's much better now. Thanks

Did you miss my previous post about optionally selecting the main icon as explained by me and Drugwash?

 Maybe the location time should fall under the refresh rule since it reflects the temp and conditions at that given time. No need to keep updating the time until the other information gets refreshed. Seems to me that would be more accurate.

Why is Sweather now connecting out so often? I have refresh set at 15 minutes. This used to work correctly with older
versions of Sweather with only 2 (open/close) connections every so often. Now I see this:
What's the reason for for the extra bandwith usage and can this be reduced or turned off?

Are you considering doing anything about being able to select which icon to use as main as suggested by me and Drugwash?

Which Windows version are you using?

Thanks for the explanation. I currently use Win 7/8/10. This is what I've observed regarding the tray icons:
1. For Win7 and Win8, customizing the individual icons to be shown/hidden will not work if sWeather is active.
   You cannot change the icons independently. If you change one, it automatically changes the action for the other, which
   is why I was always seeing both icons on the taskbar even though others were hidden.
2. On Win10, it doesn't matter if sWeather is active or not when selecting the on/off buttons individually, but
   since I was showing all icons, I was looking for a way to remove the temp icon via the sWeather options.

I found a work-around for win7/8 to only show one icon by exiting sWeather before entering the taskbar customizing menu. Once you do this, you can select the actions for the icons individually. Of course this will not work if showing all icons as with Win10.

Would an option to select which icon becomes the primary one (condition vs. temp) be possible?  Then the hover info would be the same for whichever icon one decides to show.  When choosing it this way, you would not have to display a 2nd icon. Right now the primary icon is fixed at temp. Just a thought and no deal breaker if it's too much work for you. I can live without it. :) I'm still not sure what the benefits of adding additional tray icons are and if even necessary.

I tested this in a VM at 125% DPI and it displays correctly.  On a hunch, what is your screen resolution?

1366 x 768 instead of the 1920 x 1080 which is way to small for my likes.  1366 x 768 at 125% works better for me than using the recommended resolution and a much larger DPI setting.

4. click the condition tray icon: the date/time dissapears from titlebar.

I'll look into the code, try to fix it locally and if I succeed I'll send/post the necessary patches. It'd be of great help if I had the original sources including separate libraries instead of a single bulk file but I can manage with that too if needed - it'll just take (much) more time.

If this gets fixed, could the hover info for the condition show the same info as when hovering over the temp in the systray?
Also, can the temp systray icon be made optional like the condition one?

Sorry, all.  As you found out, there was a typo in the changelog and I forgot to update the version number on the webpage.  For now, I've recompiled it, without any changes, to v1.7.7.2.  Changelog and webpage have been updated as well.

@Drugwash: I will fix both issues.

Do you have any comments regarding my previous post?
Hello,previously my sweather tray icon ...

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.

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:

sWeather seems to be working for me.  Anybody else having issues?

A couple of things:

1) Are you positive you're running
2) Do you get N/A for all locations?

filever on the exe file shows
N/A for all locations.

I'm in Germany and I see sweather accessing, but nothing happens and eventually times out. I'm also running Win7-32bit. Sweather worked fine for a while in the beginning after upgrading, but now it's more or less dead. I also tried without ssl in the options and sweather wentt to, but still no data

Another thing is if I try to access the GUI before sweather is finished trying to get data, the GUI won't show until the timeout occurrs and then I get the the GUI below. None of the buttons will work.

I have the latest version of sweather and it has stopped working since a week or so ago.
I no longer get any data and everything is n/a. Also when I try a refresh, sweather more or less
hangs and takes a long time to recover, but still no data. I don't see any error msgs from sweather
either. Any ideas how to troubleshoot this?
