I'm not sure why you would want to stay on 4.2 of Rainmeter, when 4.3 was released in September of 2019. I can understand (even if I don't entirely agree) with not staying current with the "beta" versions of Rainmeter, but I'm afraid I can't be concerned about those who won't stay current with the latest "release" version. My answer to any problem is always going to start with "Get the latest release version of Rainmeter".

Hi @jsmorley , I didn't see your reply while I was editing my previous post. First of all THANK YOU for your work. You are helping a lot of us here. :thumbup:

I realize that I didn't express myself correctly. I'm always willing to be up-to-date with any given software. Hence the fact that I downloaded the beta. Are you saying that 4.3.1 doesn't break compatibility with my IGP, but 4.4 beta does ? If so, I'll install 4.3.1 immediately. The only reason I didn't install it earlier is that I wasn't aware that it was out. Sorry about that !

Regarding my "newly-working skin" (see my previous edited post), there is only some really weird stuff supposedly happening next saturday :rofl: I wonder where that impossible "1°C" may come from, as that never happened before...

I actually recommend staying current with the latest "beta", although not everyone is willing to put the little bit of effort to stay current with that, and I'm sympathetic with that. But for sure the latest "release" is recommended.

But have you read my previous post about the latest beta not working with my IGP ? None of my skins load. Here's the log :

I'm happy to install every new version of Rainmeter as long as it's still compatible with my IGP, which the latest beta doesn't seem to be. ;-)

It looks like this issue has been fixed as of the r3382 beta. You can get it here: https://rainmeter.net

Thank you!

A typo! I left out a % on the Text option.

Cure it by replacing this section of code ( or just add a percent to the Text option: Text=%1°C)

Code: Select all

[MeterTEMP2]
Meter=String
MeasureName=@ForecastDay4DayTemperature
; MeasureName2=MeasureTemp2
; MeasureName3=MeasureTempSymb2
Group=Next3
X=68
Y=116

Excellent ! :rofl: Sorry, I should have thought about that. I thought it was a temporary issue on weather.com, and not a typo on the script.

Thank you all guys, you have been a tremendous help here once again. Thumbs up ! :thumbup:

Hi guys,

Now that weather.com is working again with Rainmeter (thanks to jsmorley and some excellent folks :thumbup: ), I was wondering if I could add the "Feels like" parameter to this skin (for example yesterday temp was 27°C but it felt like 37°C).
How could I do it ? Thanks ! :oops:

Here's the code that I'm currently using :

The posted code is useless practically in this case, because all WebParser measures are contained into the @Resources\WeatherComJSONMeasures.inc file, which you didn't post. I suppose this file should have a [@CurrentFeelsLike] (or something similar) measure, which returns exactly what have you asked for. Does has it?

The FeelsLike temperature is displayed in the tooltip info when you hover over the icon.

If you want to also show it when you hover over the temperature, you can do that by editing the [MeterTemp] section.
Add MeasureName2=@CurrentFeelsLike
Add the MouseOver/MouseLeave bangs

I don't have your graphics, but the change would look like this:
french2.gif

Code: Select all

[MeterTEMP]
Meter=String
MeasureName=@CurrentTemperature
MeasureName2=@CurrentFeelsLike
Group=First3
X=69
Y=116
W=70
H=60
FontSize=14
FontColor=255,255,255,255
StringStyle=Bold
StringEffect=SHADOW
FontFace=#FontFace#
StringAlign=center
FontEffectColor=0,0,0,50

Text=%1°C
MouseOverAction=[!SetOption #CurrentSection# Text "%2°C"][!UpdateMeter #CurrentSection#][!Redraw]
MouseLeaveAction=[!SetOption #CurrentSection# Text "%1°C"][!UpdateMeter #CurrentSection#][!Redraw]
SolidColor=0,0,0,1

If you prefer the skin to always show the FeelsLike temperature rather than the actual temperature, change MeasureName=@CurrentTemperature to MeasureName=@CurrentFeelsLike in [MeterTemp] and do not add the MouseOver/MouseLeave bangs.
