Sounds nice   :lol:

Edit: Just got another idea  :oops:

Give me a key too for windspeed and Timmy will get the possibility to
get windspeed from mph to Beaufort / kmh in TodayPlus V011

Too much ???  :oops:

@uk_skinner: Did you see my edited post  ? Can you make that possible ?

Edit: Just a second idea: Get the value from numcities of the registry in your exe
and then create as many keys as you have cities to get
winddir / windspeed from every city.

@Timmy: When you make your grafics for windspeed, you should name
the grafic like the values of the var's. F.ex. NEE=144 --> 144.bmp
Then it is really easy to get the grafik with less code. :)

Example:

load,city,%var0%
calcvar,var4,fromconfig,winddir%var0%
image,0,0,%var4%.bmp,t

Hope, that works

O.K. some more to the winddirections:

You can get 16 values:

N          =        1
NNE      =     114  
NE        =       14
ENE      =      414
E          =         4  
ESE      =      424
SE        =       24
SSE      =     224
S          =        2
SSW     =     223
SW       =      23
WSW    =     323
W         =        3
WNW    =      313
NW       =        13
NNW     =      113

That's, what you need grafic for ....

No problem, I can get wind speed into var then you guys can convert it into km/hr..

Timmy, I will send you another one later.

Uk_skinner,

I received your latest TpRegistry.exe.

My City1.txt says that the wind is W, 26 Mph. I clicked on your exe, looked in the Registry, and ...

TA    TA    TA   TA  .....

Timmy:

  If you wish, I can let the exe do the calculation to convert mhr-->kmhr then write it into registry key.

Programme/TodayPlus

so I copied the buffer folder under

Program Files

and, yes it works with the first city  :D

Uk_skinner,

In Europe most countries use Beaufort in stead of M/hr or Km/hr. A table you can find here:
http://www.jhollin1138.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1127&highlight=wind

Is Beaufort possible for you?
