QM Weather App
This little App started out as an update for itsjustmatt's "Current temperature" macro.Once that was fixed i expanded on it.
Now this app gets "Temperature,Feels like,Current conditions,wind,humidity,visibility,pressure,UV-index,and more.
Works not only with all USA cities but also other cities around the world(see help for details).
Auto updates every 20 minutes.
For USA cities and UK cities gives 6 hour forecast
For USA cities receives also special weather statements and provides an announcement and a link to view the statement.
7 day forecast
moon data and more

Thank you, hopefully, it still available.
Hello, kevin

Can you write an updated code for this program?

For example, the following steps:

1. Double-click the software(.exe) icon on the desktop to open the software and search for the software version field (the picture below)of the current forum page.

2. If the version number changes, prompt the user to update

3. When the user clicks the update button, the download progress bar will appear. After downloading, a pop-up window will prompt the user to update the software and Reopen the software.

I want to learn the relevant function code through the above step code, thank you very much.

Some features of the code, because I know very little, so I can't write, for example, search for version fields, etc. I hope you can provide an example, which is very helpful for beginners, or there are better Method for update ?

Getting close to releasing a new version of QM Weather App
added a few  new features and have adjusted the data to a more updated source as the old source has stopped updating as frequently as it use to.
This program I downloaded the test can not be used normally, because in China can not use the google service, in addition to Google Translate   Sad

Can't I use Microsoft weather information in the program?   Idea
weather app doesn't use google it uses data from The weather channel

see if you can open this site
Can be opened, but very slow and slow
That's  fine I don't pull data directly  from that page just wanted  to see if the domain  was blocked or not.
After opening the software, there will be a prompt below

I want to know how much time did you use to write this program?   Smile

Attached Files Image(s)
And yes that  page is slow to many adds. Add blocker  helps  a lot

Oh yeah i forgot  i store the images  on Google  drive will have to add maybe to onedrive instead that version won't work for you. Will have to wait for new version sorry.

Is one drive accessible  in china?
I just tested onedrive and didn't open it.

I mainly use Baidu Cloud, it is free

This network disk can also be opened.

Why not compile to exe

Package image and exe together ?
sorry will have to find another source storing on a chinese cloud server is not optimal for me and the other removes files after 30 days
can you open this site?
