Great stuff. Now I have the challenge to enter a valid code for Prague, the capital of the czech republic. Any idea? (prague,czech , prague,czecholovakia , prague,czech republic and prague,czechrepublic does not work) What side do you use for the forecast?

tpohl, typing in prague,czech republic seems to work for me. Try just typing in Prague and see if that works.

I like it a lot
I wish the text was white (with a basic shadow maybe)
cause it's hard to read the text here at night.

Thanks danillioOC. I played around with the text colors a bit and its hard to find something that works for all backgrounds. Putting a transparency or the shadow that you suggested on the text would probably work, but I'm using the vector text option due to the small font size to improve readability, and cannot apply effects. I'll try to find a workaround, but if I can't, I'll just customize the font for each weather state when I have some free time.

Edit: Ok I tweaked it a little, it should be fixed in the next update

Bug: When you switch to celcius unit, the highest and lowest temperatures unit is always in fahrenheit (the temperatures above the city name).
Comment #7 Wednesday, February 21, 2007 11:33 PM
OlivierMDVY, thanks for reporting the bug. The problem seems to be that for some reason the weather channel data is always reporting the current day's high as "N/A". I'll update the widget if I can find a workaround to the problem-maybe by replacing the day's high with the current temperature or something.

Edit: ok, so says that the day's high is invalid after 2 PM. I should have a fix up in a couple of days

Weather seems to be off by a day for Japan
Comment #11 Wednesday, May 02, 2007 2:33 AM
Jeffrey, it works ok for me. I'm checking the weather on Wednesday (in Tokyo time) and it gives me the weather on Wednesday with a forecast for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at the bottom. I'll run it for a few more days and see if there are any problems. Thanks for letting me know about the error, I'll post again if I come across anything.

Found an issue with "Light Rain w/ Thunder". It's the only one so far that it does it to.
Comment #13 Wednesday, May 09, 2007 11:27 PM
Crud, for some reason I set some of the weather states to transparent . Thanks for letting me know Z71, I'll upload an update tonight.

Jeffery, I still can't replicate the problem after running it for a couple of days so I'm not sure what to change. Sorry, I wish I could have been more of a help.

Any way to make the expanded view come up by default?
Comment #16 Friday, August 10, 2007 4:23 PM
TheD2JBug, theres not, but I can send you a version where the expanded view comes up first if you'd like - just give me an email address you want me to send it to.
