Everything is in the title, i'd like to make a weather widget, but i don't manage to do it ... I've tried to open one with DesktopX builder, clone it, replace images with mine, but it seem that the scripts are not correctly copied when cloning ...

Anyone for help ?

It is confusing I know. So far all I've managed to do is take other peoples graphics etc and tailor them to what I want. In builder mode have a weather widget up. For the background right click and go to properties. There you can change the background. Browse for the one you have in mind. Gotta have one ready for use. For the rest you keep right clicking on each piece - Temp - weather pngs etc. Go to properties each time. For the pngs once you have properties up go to summary and that's where you can move them around. You probably will have to move all this stuff around to fit in the background. You can resize it too. You might know this crap already. I save it by getting Builder config up and then I go to list. I the highlight the whole damn thing and right click on it to export it. Here is where you change the pertinent information like author etc. I'm passing over some of the details but this works for me. I just wish I had a better creative mind to come up with more original stuff instead of tweaking things other people have done.

You will always have this problem with cloning. Cloning is more for non-scripted objects.

The easiest way for non-scripters is to export the object from Builder mode using the name you want to use then change the images. Otherwise you need to go into each script & change the names of the objects.

Personally I haven't done a DX Weather Widget and I'm not sure if anyone has done one with a single script? Or better yet maybe someone wants to code a Weather Widget Maker??

First of all how to take a shot, it's transparent when trying to  
 
OK, then i didn't clone anymore but just open one weather Widget (Vienna Weather V2 by Fairyy~   ) and change background + close button and move a few things, but i can't find how to change Font/Color/Place in my background image for these elements:

- Sunset / humidity
- kind of weather right now
- name of days
- the informations given when pointing on any of the five days images

is there a way to do it ?


EDIT: so there i am, i did an exported widget with my own images which is working OK, and i managed to do what i wanted to do just upon, by editing the "package2.ini" file from the Widget folder cache. Though, when i run the widget on my PC, everything's ok, but now, how can i bring the corrected "package2.ini" in the .exe ? and save the final correct widget to be run from any PC

Neophil :not need edit that file.
For every setting , you just need dx builder.

Damned, i don't find anywhere with DXBuilder how to reach

- Sunset / humidity
- kind of weather right now
- name of days
- the informations given when pointing on any of the five days images

(can't rigt click on them and get to properties)

Here's the shot, you'll see what i mean, can't access to anything in white)

If u open that in builder, right click on builder icon in taskbar, switch toggle object palette, go to objectnavigator.
There you'll see all objects.



Just right click on object name in objectnavigator like: weather_extra, see properties , state, color etc...
...you modify Fairyy~'s widget just personal use..
