Fixed. New .rmskin in the first post of this thread.
They still don't seem to do anything when clicked. Though they do display appropriate information now.

Hello, I'm moving to this weather skin for the large font and clean format... I would, however, like to add a solid background?

Is there a 'toggle/setting' I'm missing or could someone offer a hint how to add a solid background.

Thanks,

Rainingonme.

You can just add a background meter near the top of the skin (above all other meters, so it will appear behind them), and use an Image meter with a W and H and SolidColor to define it, or use a Shape meter if you want rounded corners or a border around it.

https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/meters/image/
https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/meters/shape/

However, you will then have to play with the X and Y "position" values for each of the other meters, to get them to position where you want them in the background.

Open the skin .ini file and find this measure:

Code: Select all

[MeterDay2]
MeasureName=@ForecastDay2DayPart
Meter=STRING
X=300
Y=22R
FontColor=#FontInactive#
FontSize=14
StringAlign=RIGHT
StringStyle=NORMAL
FontFace=#Font#
Antialias=1
StringEffect=Shadow
Change it to:

Code: Select all

[MeterDay2]
MeasureName=@ForecastDay2DayLong
Meter=STRING
X=300
Y=22R
FontColor=#FontInactive#
FontSize=14
StringAlign=RIGHT
StringStyle=NORMAL
FontFace=#Font#
Antialias=1
StringEffect=Shadow
Save and refresh the skin.

Just select "Edit Weather Variables" from the right-click context menu, and in the WeatherComJSONVariables.inc file that will open in your editor, change the value of the variable LocationCode to the code for your location. If you are not sure what that is, there are instructions in the file.
