Widget is updated 16 Feb 2012

Post by par » Thu Feb 16, 2012 1:19 pm

Hey!

I just have updated our weather widget with the latest fixes that were done for YoWindow 3.
There were lots of changes.
Please take a moment to check if I did not break something.

The widget is now using new localization system, the language files are generated from Pootle strings.
Let me know if you to find a problem with text in the widget.

Thank you!

Hi Pasha,

I just tried out amelie and fiesta on my widgets. I also checked out different landscapes. The widget seems to be working.

Good Job. :good:

Hi Pavel,

The first image shows YoWindow when the webpage is first loaded; everything is okay. When you click to full screen, then back to normal size, YoWindow shrinks vertically as shown in the second image.

p.s. I have noticed that in some cases the widget will shrink both vertically and horizontally if the widget is using a custom landscape.
Just some stuff that I find useful. --> http://home.surewest.net/donjr

Hi Pasha,

I just tried going to full screen and then back on my widgets. I have the same problem that Don has shown.

I then went to the widget creation page. I wanted to try widgets at different sizes. The default one that displays when you first enter the page has no problem. You can go to full screen and back. Everything remains at the size that it should be. I tried increasing height and width and found the following -

A width of 350 or less and a height of 250 or less, the widget is okay. You can go to full screen and back. No shrinkage occurs. If width is greater than 350 or the height is greater than 250, shrinkage does occur. I used increments of 50 to come up with this information.

I hope this information helps you fix the widget.

Hi Pasha,

I was busy changing my website on February 16th to add Severe Weather Warnings. Some of my widgets have the new code (as of the 16th) and some of my widgets still have the old code. If you have the old code, your widget will not "Shrink". I notice that Werner still is using the old code. The new code isn't really shrinking. When it returns from full screen, it is showing a blank copyright bar.

The old YoWidget Code had 'copyright_bar=true' and showed the copyright bar within the widget.

Old Code when copyright bar=true

The new YoWidget Code has 'copyright_bar=false' and allows the widget to be larger and cover the old copyright bar. If you go to full screen and back, the old copyright bar shows up as a blank white line.
YoWidget New Code =false (1).JPG
New Code when copyright bar=false (before full screen)
YoWidget New Code =false (1).JPG (49.24 KiB) Viewed 4690 times
YoWidget New Code =false (2).JPG
New Code when copyright bar=false (after full screen)
YoWidget New Code =false (2).JPG (47.41 KiB) Viewed 4690 times
If you would like to test this for yourself, get onto my World Weather and go to World of YoWindow. Saint Petersburg is still the old code. Austria, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, USA, and Sweden are the new code. Look at your widget, click on full screen, and then come back to regular screen and you can see for yourself what is happening.

I hope this information helps you out. :wink:

Hi Pasha,

On the morning of February 16th, I was still able to view the Widget on my Linux. After the update that was made to the widget on the 16th, I am no longer able to view the Widget on my Linux.

I just use the Linux for testing. That way I can see how things work on a different operating system. So this is not a major issue for me. I just thought I would let you know about this.
