FYI I have been tinkering with the Mobile skin you provided and I have a version that looks like this.

Image

If interested you can download it from here:

http://rapidshare.de/files/36671524/EdsMini.wws.html
N.B. I'm sorry, rapidshare has deleted it!! :shock: Lack of activity.

It is included in my larger overall skin download but this is a quicker download. (215 KB vs 2.15 MB)

The changes include:

1. Made all forecasts IE 7 compatible
2. Replaced the forecast Alert boxes with an icon.
3. Changed the forecast weather.com links to open into a separate IE window.
4. Fixed the Current forecast's Update time display when weather.com data is N/A.
5. Increased the number of Current forecast's Hourly forecasts to 7.
6. Tweaked the Current forecast's presentation. All icons have mouseovers.
7. Added the ability to switch between Hourly and Daily icons on the Current forecast.


N.B. Note the skin has been renamed from Eds Mobile Deluxe to Eds Splendid Mini. This keeps the name that Hunz started.

8. Added the ability to switch between Hour, Day and Moon forecasts on the Current forecast.
9. Fixed the Detailed forecast's convoluted day/date problem.

Tweaked the Day forecast's Today/Tomorrow display switch.

Renamed the skin to be Eds Splendid Mini.

It can be downloaded from here.

N.B. Sorry. No longer available. Please use the main download.

EdP,

Yeah, I'd noticed what you were posting in the "Eds Skins" thread ( although somehow I missed the last post here). It's interesting to see how much can be packed into so little real estate.

Way cool!

Hi Hunz, thanks. :icon_smile: Nice to see you're still around.

Quick question for you, in the true WW Mobile app does it support skins similar to the desktop version? And if so is it's default skin named Splendid like the desktop's version?

Nice to be seen.;-)

Similar, yes. The skins folder structure is pretty much the same. Yes, the default skin in the mobile version is also called "Splendid," not to be confused with the desktop "Splendid." I'm sorry to say that although your Ed's Mobile and Ed's Mobile Deluxe function on the Pocket PC after a fashion, the advanced features like the nice WW icon and the Day/Moon/Hour don't work. The version of IE included with Windows Mobile is somewhat lobotomized compared to the desktop versions.

You tried my skins on a Pocket PC. :shock: Interesting. :icon_smile: In that I don't have one determining why they don't work is pure speculation, but I would suspect it's the version of JScript. But that's a WAG. Are there any error msgs if you open the forecast's html in the Pocket PC's IE?

I was wondering where the Splendid name came from for the mobile verion. Thanks for clearing that up. I may have to rename my skins to be more consistent. How's Eds Mobile Splendid and Eds Mobile SE (Splendid Extended) strike you? :icon_smile:

But if the skins don't work on the mobile devices maybe Mobile shouldn't be a part of the name. :neutral: Maybe Eds Splendid Mini and Eds Splendid Mini XT would be better.

BTW One of the things I like about this skin is the Interface can be smaller and the smaller Interface allows for the Classic Forecasts to be used and look reasonable. They didn't work well with the Splendid Interface.

And finally, can you post the mobile's Splendid Interface? :icon_smile:

Nice WAG :thumbright:

Pocket IE doesn't support much JavaScript. I'm just happy it support the little that it does. I heard Windows Mobile 6.0 is in the works. Perhaps they will add some new changes to Pocket IE with that release.

Is it possible to buy Windows Mobile without buying a PDA or such device? Can it be run in a virtual, VMware or QEMU, type environment?

The emulators I use come with Microsoft Visual Studio. I don't know that you can install them without Visual Studio though.

Do you have any documentation on Windows Mobile's JScript? What it can do what it can't do?

I just figured it out by trial and error. I googled around for a few minutes, but I did not have any luck tracking down documentation. There has to be some floating around somewhere :neutral:

So what part of my Mobile skins don't work due to JScript limitations and what part don't work due to WW tag limitations?

Your skin would have to be tested in order to determine that. Any takers? :iconbiggrin:

It would appear you can get the emulator installed w/o the rest of Visual Studio. These URLs should help:

Judging from the Options menu, and the file structure, There doesn't appear to be an option to skin the interface on WW Mobile at this time. Mike may have some plan to do that in the future, but given the limited real estate on the Windows Mobile platform it would be a lower priority.
