EDIT: febr. 23, 2005 --> new pic-names and added 'Feels like' pics



@ALL,

In this thread I'll post the Temperature charts.   The idea was born on some other threads of this forum. At least uk_skinner and Broesel were the great initiators, maybe more members, but I don't remember their names at this moment. Thank you, guys!

 :arrow:  :arrow:  :arrow:   In this post you can find the Celcius-chart-files.   :arrow:  :arrow:  :arrow:

This is an example of some of the temperature-backgrounds:




Tips:
•  The chart is ment for 24 hours-temperature. If you wish, you can (of course!!) make textlines for only 12 hours in your skinfile.
•  Write the necessary textlines in your skinfile and put the desired temperature-background somewhere in your skin. You also can add some text around the chart, if you wish, for example "Celcius" or some temmperatures or whatever you like;
•  After you've written the textlines necessary to show the temperature background, you can write the textlines for the pointer-pic of the first hour, the pointer-pic for the second hour and so on, untill the 24th hour.
•  Do you want the 'Feels like' pics on the foreground?? Then you have to write the skin-textlines after the temperature-pics.

==> You need uk_skinner's .exe to get the temperature of the 24 hours in the registry of your PCC. The thread that tells you more about this, you can find here .

 :arrow:    The Celsius.zip files for VGA PocketPC's are here
 :arrow:    And the Celsius.zip files for QVGA PocketPC's are here
 :arrow:

NOTE:
I've numbered the pointer-pics from -22°C (-22.png) to 40°C (40.png). I'm not sure if this will remain the picture-list in the future, because at the moment we are discussing what's the best numbering-list and what the best and most easy names are. I'll keep you informed.

Again, great work....

Just finished the PHP script  for  hourly forecast .  The data will give you up to 48 hours of hourly forecast.  However, iyou also can specify the window.  In other words, you can have every 1, or 2, or 3.......47 hour forecast.

Timmy:

  Just downloaded your VGA package.  The size of background is 233x100 for VGA.  And your scale is from -20C to 63C right?  

  I have something in my mind and I would like to test it.  Would it be possible you can send me just dot images no transparency strip?  Thanks.

Uk_skinner,

Here are the pointers without the transparancy strip. They are now 10x10 pixels. I hope you can use them for your plans...

@Uk_skinner, @Broesel and @Wichtel,

I'm glad you like the things I've done.

And you all know it: this time I gave you things, another time you gave me things! That's why I like workplaces like this and some other forums!!!

Timmy:

Your pointers worked great.

But I need to confess again that I am no good in art.  But with Timmy's works I can just try to express the idea.  Here it is.  I hope some great skinner out there can make it better.   :oops:  :oops:

Uk_skinner,

This is what I want to do for my own skin:




While testing, I noticed some points to improve these backgrounds:
•  the innerside (blue to yellow) must be somewhat lighter;
•  the x-line can remain where it is, but the little graduation-lines must disappear to make the background more universal.

@All,

As I wasn't satisfied with the result of my first serie, so I rebuild the backgrounds and the pointers:

•  The innerside (blue to yellow) of the backgrounds is more clear now.
• the x-line can remained where it was, but the little graduation-lines are deleted to make the background more universal.
•  The demensions of the backgounds are changed to 183x52 pixels (QVGA) and to 276x104 (VGA).
•  The demensions of the pointers are changed to 4x42 pixels (QVGA) and to 8x84 (VGA).
