Nice skin cyber!

A couple of observations:

A) Your context menu bangs to change between imperial/metric write the new value of UnitOfMeasure to the current skin instead of the included variables.inc file. So now if a user edits the variable.inc file, the setting for imperial/metric will not the variable.inc value, but be the value in the skin. I think you should change the bangs to write the value to the variable.inc file.

Code: Select all

ContextTitle2=Use Imperial
ContextAction2=[!WriteKeyValue Variables UnitOfMeasure i "#@#Variables.inc"][!Refresh]
ContextTitle3=Use Metric
ContextAction3=[!WriteKeyValue Variables UnitOfMeasure m "#@#Variables.inc"][!Refresh]
B) I sometimes run at a lower resolution 1366x768...at that resolution, I can only see 4 days of info, the others are off the bottom of the screen.

Perhaps you could offer alternate arrangements besides vertically; horizontally, 2x3, 3x2?

Thanks for sharing! :thumbup:

Thanks for the suggestions, was trying to think of a way of doing the Variables.inc. Yes will give some variations, this was my first attempt at 6 days so it go a little long.
