Kurz:Zeige Wetterinfos in der Screenbar
Download: - View contents
This  sbar  module,  shows  the current weather informations for a selected

Here is a preview, how it looks like

You  will see a small image representing the current weather condition, the
temperature and a text.
I use the weather information from

If  you  move  the mouse over the sbar and wait some seconds, a bubble pops
up,    showing    all    available   weather   informations.

If  you  click with the left mousebutton on it, a popup menu will be opened
to manually get new weather infos or checking for an update.

Since v1.19, yWeather will check 30 secs after the first sucessfull weather
update, if there is an update available.

You  can  change the location in the Screenbar-Settings (right click on the
screen-depth    gadget,   then   choose   "Settings").    Then   click   in
the City-ID string gadget and enter your location, f.e. "Berlin,DE".
After  a successfull retrieving of weather infos, the ID is used!

The default location is Berlin.

You  can  also change the unit of the temperature to Celsius, Fahrenheit or
Kelvin,  if you want the wind speed in m/s, the text color, the text format
and  the  update  rate how often the weather informations should be trieved
(in seconds).

The  all-info-bubble  does  not pop up if you didn't have "Mouse actions on
inactive  windows" checked in Prefs/IControl!
Thanks to Nicolas Sallin for finding this.

of "Sys:Data/yWeather/" like in previous versions! !!! Important !!! Important

New in v1.21:

   Fix: Added a workaround for a ParseDate() bug with single day number, f.e
"Mon Mar  4 14:02:22 2019"         can only be parsed if I remove the double
spaces before the "4"!    Chg: Displaying of "precipitation" in the
All-Info-Bubble wasn't correct, because it seems to be not fully        
supported/available, its now "<rain|snow|...|n/a> [<value>mm] [<1h|3h|...>]"   
Fix: the sunrise, sunset and lastupdate date/times are now converted to your
local date/time    Chg: sunrise and sunset times are now displayed in one line
instead of two lines (in the all-info-bubble)
   Chg: Now a popup-menu will be opened if you press the left mousebutton over
its sbar         There you can choose to get the weather infos, open the weather
forecast (not yet) or check for an update    Chg: My sbar was drawn every
second, instead only if needed    Chg: Check for an update after downloading of
weather infos failed 5 times and the sbar was deactivated         before it only
checked for an update if getting of weather infos succeeded

New in v1.20:

10-Jan-2019, v1.20, released    Rem: Removed the forecast, will be added later  
 New: Added a Language cycle gadget in the prefs to get the weather data in a
specific language    Chg: Setting up your location in the prefs changed    Chg:
Changed the layout of the all-info-bubble a bit, f.e. the titles are now bold

   New: added precipitation and cloudiness to the All-Info-Bubble    New:
Convert the WindName, CondText and Cloudiness from UTF8 to system charset

   New: Added Kelvin as temperature unit in prefs/misc    Rem: Distance unit is
now always meter    Rem: Removed WindChill, because OpenWeatherMap doesn't have
support for it    Rem: Removed support for country name, because OpenWeatherMap
doesn't have support the country name, only an abbreviation    Rem: Removed
"Atmospere/State" value, because OpenWeatherMap doesn't have support for it   
Chg: "%w" was Wind Chill and is now "Wind name"

   Chg: Changed name of the sbar to Your!Weather because I'm now using a
different weather providing service (currently OpenWeatherMap)
   Chg: Changed some msgs which contained "Yahoo" to "WeatherService"   
		prefsMsgSendingQuery, prefsMsgFailedToConnect, msgWeatherServiceError (prev.

New in v1.19:

25-Dez-2016, v1.19, released    Fix: If yWeather failed to retrieve the weather
informations, after it once was successfull, 		the error informations weren't
shown in the bubble, instead the "old" weather data were shown

   Chg: Reverted the feature to additionally display the clock 		I will write a
new sbar (xInfo.sbar) which will be able to display misc system infos:
		like clock, sensors (like CPU temp etc), number of windows/screens etc    Chg:
If yWeather failed to retrieve the weather informations, because you are
offline, or because of 		a connection problem with yahoo, the all-info-bubble
contains information about the error codes    Fix: If the first weather update
failed (after 5 retries), new opened screen showed "Updating..." forever    Fix:
The all-info-bubble could show "old" weather data    New: The "New Version"
bubble now appears on all opened screens!

   Fix: The UpdateCheck requester doesn't blocks the PublicScreenManager anymore
   Fix: Ensure that the weather-update isn't called too often    Chg: Changed
the UpdateCheck at startup, now there will be only a bubble displayed, and a
short notice 		in the instant bubble    Fix: It could happen that the weather
data were redownloaded if a new screen opens

   New: There is now a format string for the complete string (with %w = weather
info, %c = clock)
		and an own format string for the weather info and the clock
   New: You can have different colors for the weather info and the clock

   New: Added the possibility to display date and time, just specify a "%Z" in
the "Text Format:" setting    New: Added a "Clock Format:" setting    Fix: The
All-Info-Bubble could stay opened, if you deactivate yWeather.sbar while its

   Chg: Changed the UpdateCheck method, I'm now using a php script to check for
an update    New: 30secs after the first successfull weather update, an
UpdateCheck will be performed -- New in v1.18:
Fix: Fixed a bug in ECX's library generation code, which causes a crash if my
sbar fails to open      on first opening Fix: Fixed some warning messages Chg:
Removed the bsdsocket.library check, it shouldn't be needed

Fix: Clicking on "Visit homepage" in the UpdateCheck requester, could produce
hits, because I used      SystemTagList() with SYS_Asynch,TRUE but without
specifying SYS_Input/SYS_Output, shame on me;)
     But for an sbar obj this didn't causes hit, because Input/Output were NIL

05-Sep-16: v1.17, internal Chg: Before first weather-info-download of the first
sbar instance, I check if the bsdsocket.library      can be opened, if not
(means network is not ready) I delay the download call by 1 second, seems     
to help on boot if the network availability is delayed      [reported by cyfm,
03-Sep-16] -- New in v1.16
Fix: The saved temperature unit wasn't used at startup, if it was set to F
     [reported by redrumloa, 17-Apr-16]
New in v1.15:
Chg: The temp. in Celsius are now displayed with 1 digit after the comma
     Yahoo sends them in Fahrenheit, so I can display them more precisely;)
Fix: Changing temp. unit (and color) in the sbar prefs, crashes the sbar Fix: If
using multiple screens, the text wasn't always the same Chg: added a countdown
for the failing msgs Chg: due to the countdown: msgUpdatingFailed, msgOffline,
msgYahooError changed Fix: If you remove my sbar while I'm waiting for yahoo,
the whole sbar could crash (hopefully fixed...)

New in v1.14:
Fix: Wind-speed was always 0.00
     [reported by jPV, 29-Mar-16]
Fix: the units for wind speed, chill, visibility and pressure were missing
New: added the version of yWeather.sbar in the all-info-bubble
New in v1.13:
Chg: Display "Update check..." in the sbar, if you press middle mouse button
Chg: The required icons are now located in Sys:Data/Screenbar/yWeather/ instead
     of Sys:Data/yWeather/
New: Added a simple installation script
New in v1.12:
Chg: Don't eat RMB over my sbar

Fix: Crash if you remove the sbar while trying to download weather infos

Chg: add the inputhandler after first successful download

Chg: if downloading of weather infos failed, try again after 10 seconds,
     if it fails 5 times in a row, deactivate auto-update!
     You have to left click on the sbar to activate it again!
     Offline will be recognized and displayed

New: Recognize if yahoo sends no weather data, then "Yahoo error!" will be

Fix: don't show the all-info-bubble, if there was no successful download!

Chg: If the conversion of the yahoo date failed, display the original date
instead the localized22 in the bubble      Dates like this "Mon, 28 Mar 2016
12:00 AM CEST" fail, because of the "12:xx AM"

New: New strings to localize: msgDeactivated, msgOffline, msgYahooError


  1) copy contents of "SYS" to SYS:
     These are the icons for the weather conditions.
     I used VClouds from and resized them
     to 16 pixels height with ShowGirls.
     You can replace them with your own images.
  2) if you want to have localized text, copy the appropriate catalog
     f.e for german text:
     copy catalogs/deutsch/yWeather.catalog to SYS:Locale/Catalogs/deutsch/
  3) Now you have to update the displayed sbars:
     - right click on the screen-depth icon (upper right corner of the screen)
     - choose 'Update List'
     - then select the new entry "Yahoo!Weather" in this screen-depth-menu
