Hi my friend @Michael , I just had replace my “old” ADT hub for a new Aeotec one, and I deleted my weather dashboard and now I found there is a DTH update and its GREAT !.. I will recreate my weather dashboard and take advantages from your new DTH, thanks for share !.
There is a forecast display I would like to replicate, but I have not found how, I will appreciate a lot if you can give me some path and tips … The tiles I am trying is:
Its really cool: Icon + Day + Weather + Low + High.
I have seen some screen shots from other users about their IDEs and I have seen the icons are displayed correctly, but in my case in the IDE the icon value has the same codes chars. Im using a mac and the dashboards in iphones, I do not know what is about, I have read your DTH and I found this special chars are in the icon sections, also I read “Do not change this icons…” warning, any idea how to get them right my friend!
Note: The icon of the Weather Tile is displayed ok …
Okey !.. I was suspicious something about mac… yes I copied and pasted directly from the code in your link posted to IDE DTH editor, tomorrow I will test copying first in a Mac OS text editor before take it to IDE…lets see what happen and keep getting fun …! thanks again brother…
1.- Copy DTH code to a Mac Text Editor
2.- Save and close the file locally in my mac
3.- Copy code from .txt file to IDE DTH editor
4.- Refresh DTH for Weather device (I changed DTH and turn it back to Weather DTH to assure updating)
5.- Uncheck Weather device in Sharptools access, update
6.- Recheck Weather device in Sharptools access, update
7.- SAME RESULT
I asked to my daughter for her Windows laptop to make a try, then copy paste the DTH code, I repeated the procedure but I got exactly same result, this is what I see on each step, maybe could be some clues:
So finally, I really stuck right now, I have seen other IDE screens with icon displayed as supposed to be … I do not have any idea what to do about it , if you can guide me I will appreciate it a lot …again ! Thanks in advance…
UPDATE> I have tried a longshot entering directly in IDE DTH edition the Unicode Hexa from Mac UTF keyboard (alt+code) and now in IDE icons are displayed, also in Sharptools dashboard !!!, what a luck !..but I wonder if this is going to fail thinking about your warning message, or maybe if I can get codes numbers I can go with same codes …
If you’re copying and pasting the code directly from the AWS url to either a text editor or straight into the IDE console… the end result will be the same - The file needs to be SAVED (ie Right click > Save as) to your computer (allowing the characters to can get converted).
I will send you a PM with some additional trouble shooting help
I used background images that had a portion (right-hand side) that was transparent. This gave the illusion that the icon was ‘hanging’ over the edge. We can still achieve the same look (without the images) with a little CSS.
CSS background-image: url(https://image_location.jpg) - By default, background images are placed at the top-left corner of an element, and repeated both directions.
Other properties that might be used (optional): background-position:value; Example - top left, center center, … background-repeat:value; Example - no-repeat, repeat-y (vertical), repeat-x (horizontal), …
