Weather Gadget

This gadget allows you to see current weather with either a zip code, or city, state.

Type in a zip code, or a city and state with a comma between and press enter (or go).

It downloads information from the weather.com site.

You can also set an address as home, so instead of typing it again press "home" to go there,

or if you open it again, goes right to that location.

Bill, make your app international!

This url can get you started to retrieve location codes for non-US areas:

examples

http://www.weather.com/search/search?where=las%20vegas

http://www.weather.com/search/search?where=paris,france

Means you'll have to build-in a chooser to select from multiple hits, but it would be a nice addition :)

Oh, and don't forget to give a metric display option as well.

No Problem. That is one of the reasons i put my thoughts online, so that everyone can use my programs and can learn new things. Thats how i started.

I keep getting errors that there are "No matches Found" for any city/zipcode entered. Even the default city produces an error. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

Note: I am running this on my work pc, so there is a possibility that a company firewall is blocking the traffic. However I don't think that's the case since it downloads the images to the "application data" folder correctly.

I looked at it. and deleted the ini file, and it seemed to work...

for now, change the ini file key value for:

[settings]

Home=

^change that to your zip code...

The new update includes some fixes. Test it again and tell me if it helped.

I noticed that youre screenshot looked like it was from Vista (which I'm not using). However I do have a Virtual Machine Running the new Windows 7 Beta, and it works just fine there.

It appears that XP is where the problems at (or it may just be my laptop).
