Problems displaying PWS temp & rain

Post by hdultra103 » Thu Dec 30, 2010 8:13 am

Hello, I'm new to YoWindow and I'm having problems getting the temperature and daily rain total to display on my YoWindow display. NaN isdisplayed for temp and NaN.NaN" is displayed for daily rain total. The rest of the data from my PWS appears to display correctly. I'm using WD 10.37Q bulid 10 and Win XP SP 3. When I open the yowindow.xml file I get an error message "The XML page cannot be displayed
Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.

The operation completed successfully. Error processing resource 'file:///C:/wdisplay/webfiles/yowindow.xml'. Line 8, Position 35

Hi hdultra103!

I don't know WeatherDisplay because i don't have it, BUT:
"NaN" means "Not-a-Number" so i guess in your customyowindow.txt you have to use another variable for the temperature that provides this value without the unit.

It should produce something like

Code: Select all

<current value="1.2"/>
instead of

Code: Select all

<current value="1.2&deg;C"/>
like now.

For the daily-rain-total-value you should try the same.

More detailed help will surely be provided by WD-Users soon!

Edit: i just saw that you already use the variable as it is used in the template from the tutorial - i'm sorry i should have been silent :oops:

Yes, the problem is the &deg; that WD is adding which is an option within WD. Try going to Control Panel-Web Files/Web Page Setup then the Custom Web Page Setup tab. If the third item down "Include Units Used" is ticked, un-tick that.

Hopefully that's the right place, if not we'll have to look deeper. Let us know how it goes and if that's it we should probably add that to the WD setup instructions.

Problem fixed Jim. Unticking the "include units used" worked. All data is reading correctly now. Thank you for the help. Great forum.
