Broesel, I like your new pop-up screen layout.  Makes me want to start skinning again. :wink:


Thanks rbg08, that is a skin I've been started long ago, but did not really
had time to finish it (Windows98-look and feel)

So now I'm using it to test all the new things uk_skinner gave us

 :D

So this is, what I could do with the temperature-bar.

Don't know, if anybody finds that useful (Well maybe with a better graphic)

See the screenshot ...

Broesel,

I was sure you could fix this, and now it's reality! Thanks for your efforts!!! It looks nice! Again a new feature!

Question: is there realy no way of making this vertical?!? Like the Wisbar Advance batterymeter?!?

No, I can't do that with a barmeter, the only way, I could think off,
is a picture for every temperature (like the winddirection), so this
would work like winddir with a pic for every variable-value.
So if we assume a value in Celsius from -20 to + 40 that would be
60 pictures for that. I think, that is a little much stuff ?
Okay, if you won't have it that much accurate maybe wit a value every
2 degrees it would be about 30 pic's.

Greetings Broesel

I was thinking that too.  But we need to get temperature into registry key, isn't it?

ZapMe1,

Now I understand what your thougts were!

But at the same time I have two questions for you: isn't the pointer confusing us, as you think automatic about winddirections/compass?!? And the second question: isn't it a aist of the screen space?!? Because there need to be another pic for the direction... I think uk_skinner had a better idea at this point: direction AND windspeed are in ONE pic!

What do you think?

Timmy,

I do agree with you on both of the above questions !!   1) the pointers could be confusing...   2) I also like the idea of "speed" inside of the direction pic !!   Another great idea by the "Exe_Master"  (aka Uk_Skinner)
 :D

Broesel,

I'll put it on my To-do-list. But first I'm working out the new winddirection backgrounds. Hope to finish them this weekend.

By the way: I've just finished a new serie of weather icons. Hope, people like them!

@Broesel and @other members,

I was looking at the thermometer, too. But there are some problems. It's not possible to make ànd a little pic, ànd at the same time enough readable measure-lines. So it don't add no valuable things to the PocketPC screen, and it's only wasted space.

But nevertheless I'm willing to make a thermometer for the interested members. Please let me know if you're interested.

Well, Timmy, I think for now it is not neccessary to make that pics
(well not for me of course), when I get time, I will test a little more
with the barmeter, we'll see ....

Thanks for asking
