I would also like to use the program Weather Display.
But no information has not been replaced.
Or was it someone else?

I produced these gauges for users of my software - Cumulus. I think you're very rude asking here for help using them with Weather Display.

I have to agree Steve!

It's a bit like asking the bank to pay your loan for you!

Very nice realtime view using Silverlight Steve. Is there a way to resize the display? I'm using your application / web accessed via two sizes of touchscreens; one being 800X600 and the other being 800X480. My goal is to incorporate / utilize your application views on the touchscreens. I embed the Cumulus HTML pages into the touchscreens. So ideally if I could resize them somehow to fit small screens; it would make the touchscreen looking like a piece of dedicated to the weather station hardware. Or maybe the ability to just display the three sections separately? IE:

It's all a bit of a work in progress that I started and haven't done much with, so it's somewhat inflexible still; there's no way to resize it. At some point I might get around to doing a bit more with it.

Thanks Steve. Just starting to utilize your application.

I have not used Silverlight too much. This would be the first attempt though at a customized weather touchscreen using Silverlight.

Using flash today on many of the screens. Moving (migrating) the one does all box to a more distributed set up.

Created one touchscreen using your guages. Ideally looking towards an "Analog" page that makes the touchscreen look like an older style analog device with some digital pieces added in.

Pete, have you thought about using the SteelSeries gauges - you can customise the layout and look'n'feel with a little effort.

Steve, would you consider providing the source for the Silverlight stuff? I know you're using the Telerik controls for the UI parts, but I'm dabbling in Silverlight (and WPF & Windows Phone 7), and I'm mostly interested in the code that does the data retrieval. I'll deal with the UI aspects separately.
If I make anything nice, I'll give it back to you (and the community).

Brad.

I use WebClient.OpenReadAsync(). See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library ... 95%29.aspx

Heh, okay, I guess I should have been less specific. I'm *really* mostly interested in the parser. I assume you're reading realtime.txt and parsing into a class?

Brad.

There's nothing in the code to limit the interval. I'm using 5 seconds: http://sanday.org.uk/weather/realtime.htm
