This was great, I always wanted an object / widget like if only there was an Omni blind as well as a Tropik blind...I guess thats a lot to ask

Great work Tiggz... you've done it again!

Just one quick question... I probably should know this but how do I set it to display in metric measurements?

DigitalCHET: "To open the options tray click near the bottom of the main window"

maddox4u, do you have the latest version of desktopX?
Maybe that's a possibility to solve your problem.

This is a really nice piece of work. I find it very useful as I study in England but I am originally from Norway. I like to see how the weather is like back home, espesially before I go back for hollidays. Before I used to start two instances of a weather widget, with the problem that both wouldn't start at Windows startup, but this makes things easier.
I love the detail where the location is displayed. I'll have to investigate how that's done as I had some similar ideas for a widget that would trace the route of a connection from your computer to another computer and then display it on a map.

Good stuff. Any chance to have a few color alternatives a'la GT3. Thanks

Just a minor gripe, as I really do like the design quite a bit--however, I've noticed that you don't seem to be doing tooltips anymore with buttons (at least in the couple of widgets I've downloaded recently). Is that by design? I find myself lost with the buttons unless I come here to get specific details on what I'm clicking. In fact, I still don't know what function the buttons next to "Forecast" serve, if any.

I have DesktopX 3.10.042 installed, all of the OMNI widgets are not working

To NutShell and others who have problems:

I hate to say, but Stardocks programs are buggy
Logon XP never works for me

I am using the GT3 theme and widgets.
The GT3 Calender didn't work for me. I used the Desktop X builder to check and found that my locale setting, which is Japanese, was to blame.
The VB script took notice of my system locale and returned a Chinese character as the month name, and therefore messin' up the calender script.
I then added a line of code : SetLocale("en-us") as first line of code to be executed, it solved the problem

The GT3 Media didn't work until I reinstalled Windows and Windows media player

If your locale is not set to English, try my method

If that isn't the problem, use Desktop X builder to import the widget and check for script errors.
The error will tell you clues why the widget went wrong in your system

Have the latest version of DX

The worst case is to reinstall windows. But this does not necessarily helps the problem

I have the exact same problem as maddox4u: The location points don't show and the lines are not drawn on the map. Any information on what's causing this?
