Thread: Moving Status Bar Weather Icons

  1. #1
    Default Moving Status Bar Weather Icons
    Sorry to make a new post but I have searched all over but could not find the answer I needed. I am trying to get the weather icon image and the weather temperature moved to the left next to the signal bars. Right where the carrier info would be. Does anyone know which PLIST I would have to change and what information I would have to enter or alter? I have the WeatherIcon app and Katra-based Weather Icon installed. Thanks in advance.

    You need to edit the style sheet (the one you have selected) that's in the wbApp folder.
    There are many settings so be careful.
    It should look something like:

    #TextContainer{
    clear: both;
    font-size:12.5px;
    text-align: left;
    padding-left:25px;

    where you would edit the padding-left: option


    They are .css files but you can edit them in wordpad.

    I don't think he's using wbapp, he's using weathericon. There's a plist in the theme file for weathericon, but I'm not sure whether it's possible to do what you want. Try asking Stimpy5050 over at macthemes -- he's the author of weathericon and there's a 60-page thread there that he responds to all the time.

    Oh! Thats a separate app. You are correct, I am using weathericon. I will check out macthemes.

    Thanks to both of you!

    I got mine to work. Here is my .css file settings:

    #WeatherContainer{
    float:right;
    margin-top:-25px;
    margin-right:262px;
    color:white;
    padding:5px 5px 5px 5px;
    }

    #TextContainer{
    clear: both;
    text-align: center;
    font-family: sans-serif;
    text-shadow: rgba(0,0,0,1) 0 0 4px;
    font-weight: bold;}

    #city{
    display: none;
    }

    #TextContainer p{
    padding:0;
    margin:0;
    }

    #desc{
    text-transform:capitalize;
    display:none;
    }

    #temp{
    font-size: 13px;
    }

    #weatherIcon{
    height:17px;
    width:17px;
    border:none;
    float: right;
    margin-top:-15px;
    margin-right:-18px;
    }

    Simtech, THATS AWESOME! Can I just ask what you have installed as far as the weather components? I have WeatherIcon and the KatraTheme. Not sure if I even need both but its working. Thanks again!!!

    All I have installed is WbApp. It has a lot of functions as far as organizing Winterboard but I only use it for the Weather Widget. You can select different styles (style sheets). This one is StatusBar_Tiny. I have modified the style sheet to move it where the carrier info was.

    Sounds good man! I will try it out tonight. Thanks again.

    Man I'm usually pretty good at following instructions and figuring stuff out but I cant this to work for the life of me. Maybe I just dont understand the WbApp enough. I enabled it via WinterBoard and then enabled the widget via WbApp. No matter what I did, I kept getting Cupertino up in the right. I modified the CSS like you said and then it disappeared. I had my carrier logos transparent. I put my original weather icon back. WbApp looks powerful but was confusing. Do you activate themes via WbApp instead of WinterBoard?

    lol... yea it was buggy for me also. You will probably have to edit the config file also.
    In the root of the theme folder, goto the Private folder and edit the configureMe.js file to look like:

    var iconExtWall = '.png'
    var iconExtLock = '.png'
    var locale = '70815'
    var iconSetWall = 'tango'
    var iconSetLock = 'tango'
    var enableWallpaper = true
    var isCelsius = false
    var useRealFeel = false
    var enableLockScreen = false
    var source = 'appleAccuweatherStolen'
    var stylesheetWall = 'Above_Dock_Trans'
    var stylesheetLock = 'Split_4thRow'
    var updateInterval = 5


    --- the 3rd line is where you put your zipcode
    --- The 11th line is the name of the style sheet that you edited
    --- the last line is the time interval...

    good luck!

    AHHHHHH! SUCCESS!! Its working! Ok, one more question and I will stop. Shouldnt I be able to see the weather in the status bar all the time? I dont see it on the lock screen or any other screen besides the home screen. Thanks again!!
