New: control temperature color in tray

Post by par » Sat May 22, 2010 1:15 pm

One of the key features in YoWindow - display of the current temperature in tray - beside the Windows clock.
But you may have missed it if the temperature color (usually black) have matched to the background of your task bar.

To solve this problem we have made it possible to control tray temperature color and backgound.

You may alter the colors in Options/Advanced/System tray

Have a nice weather!

Get YoWindow for your phone or tablet - it's awesome on both!

Pasha,

Is this some setting? I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium. I use the "up arrow" to expand my tray. When I do, there's a bland (white) area and when I move the cursor over it, the window block displays showing the current summary. I've tried changing the colors but it never changes from a blank space. I've searched the "Options" but don't recognize another setting I can try.

Thank you,
Joe

Hi Joe,

I am using RC 307 and am able to select background color and color for temperature. I hope this helps you out.

I have YoWindow 2.0 Build 307. When I select the two colors, the boxes remain white. The colors I selected are not displayed in those little boxes, as they do in your example.

Hi Joe,

Click on Color or Background square. Click on the color you want from the long narrow line. Put cursor in square to left of narrow line. Click on the color tone that you want. You will see a circle by your cursor and color has appeared in small square to right of narrow line along with color number. Click OK. Click OK.

Hope this helps you.

Thank you countryroads. I wasn't aware of clicking in the large colored box. I thought making a selection along the long narrow bar was all that was needed.

I have the colors selected now.

Thank you.

I actually completely missed this feature! The temperature has been there right before my eyes this whole time, and I haven't even noticed it. I have even been using my large screen led tv as a monitor, and I still didn't see it. I am glad that I stumbled along this forum, or I might have never figured it out. Thank you very much for this very helpful information!!
