IP Information Skin Project

IP Information Skin Project:

Hi folks ! ;)

jsmorley said on an another thread "What would be more fun is .."
Well I always want "Raineers" to have more fun, so right now I'm testing a new IP skin project (Code Name: "I want to know")

Do you want more toys (features) for the default skin ? :P

Awesome work GhostMatrix. Is it pulling that icon from the web or is that a local file?

@ dragonmage

Thanks! :)

The flag value (ca) is provided by the website, the Canada flag Png is coming from the skin folder who have all the country flags! 8-)

Really Nice.. Can you post your code at some point? I want to ruthlessly steal the RegExp code for parsing the web page you used... ;-)

By the way, just a nitpick. "Information" is already plural, so you don't need the "s" on the end.

Great job!

@ sgtevmckay
It's very interesting ... give me some ideas ;) Thanks!

@ jsmorley

I have edited the first post and uploaded the skin zip file ...

Be gentle with it!! :lol:
P.S you have your country flag in the skin folder, but not all country flags because the size of the zip file will be too big to upload here (I think ?).

And many thanks for the nitpick :D

:lol:

I am easy to please.
I want one thing; that is everything. :D

Easier to know what you can do, when you know what you can do.
Squeeze all the blood from the stone :twisted:

Just like with the weather (I am still working on), I am into as much information, and relative details that I can get.
Understand I am the type of person that listens to the radio, the Citizen Band Radio, HAM radio, scanner, FM Radio, internet radio, all at the same time. I am full of worthless facts. :ugeek:

I would rather cull down information, than to see what more I could get later.

Enough rambling :!:

I guess. I do not know what all to ask for, because I do not know what information is available to you :?

The graphics I feel is an individual choice and should be decide by yourself; the artist of the skin :D

@ sgtevmckay

I simply parse the website page from the link http://www.ipaddresslocation.org/ provided by jsmorley here http://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=212

About the skin:

This is just a default skin to make available the RegExp code for the peoples, The skin layout is big to clearly show everything that is available for the skin.
It's a default codes skin but I'm a graphic guy, so even if is just a default skin it have to be nice ! 8-)
I guess. I do not know what all to ask for, because I do not know what information is available to you :?
What information is available to me ?, anything that you can see on a website page, even some information that you don't see !! :roll:

Thanks much GM! Damn, I wish I could Vulcan Mind-Meld with you on how to use RegExp to parse websites (other than RSS, mostly can just cut and paste that). Anything other than basic RegExp is harder than Chinese algebra to a newbie.. ;-)

Here is a file with all the flags of the world in 4 different sizes...

ftp://uzaeagle.serveftp.com/rainmeter/flags.rar

Which I got from here: http://www.free-country-flags.com/index.php

I agree with Mr. Morley.

I could use a little more direct interface with your mind, to figure the regexp out :D
