@balala : I know, I posted the current code just to state where I'm at currently, for future readers. :welcome:

@eclectic-tech : I'd be happy if the "feels like" appeared as a tooltip when I hover over the icon. Unfortunately it doesn't at the moment. Never has. :???:
Here's the whole skin with all the needed files and graphics, just in case.

WeatherFrench.rar

It certainly does on your computer. Now we only need to figure out why it doesn't on mine. Because I can assure you it doesn't. :confused:

I'm surprised. There are three skins in your last posted package. Two of them don't even work for me. The third one (WeatherFrench2.ini) shows the above tooltip.

You posted too fast my friend :rofl: I have just edited my previous post to indicate that tooltips were disabled on my computer.
So using regedit, I have been here: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\
Then I've set EnableBalloonTips to 1, and restarted explorer.exe . Problem solved! :p
However, only a part of the info in the tooltip is translated fo french. What file should I edit to translate the rest?

2020.08.03 - 22.53.30.png

There would be:
- Date: incorrect format (it should read "3 août")
- Feels like, plus the 4 lines below it

PS : sure, only the last version of the skin (WeatherFrench2.ini) works. The other two are old versions that I've been keeping just in case I'd need to revert for whatever reason. They probably don't work anymore.

Edit '@Resources\WeatherComJSONLanguage.inc' to create translations for the English terms. Note you will have to add Visibility=visibility and translate to the right of the equal sign to the French term.

For the date, you need to edit '@Resources\WeatherComJSONVariables.inc' and change the DateFormat=... to the values you desire.

Thanks! Works perfectly now :) I've even added the units by editing the skin's ini file.

I had no idea about this registry key and how does it affect the tooltip in Windows, but makes sense and it is good to be know such a setting does exist. Thanks for the info. :thumbup:
