    Display map image

    I use WeatherXML to download a map image. This image lives in the weatherxml/image folder. I noticed while trying to add this as a widget, that I can only add an HSBuddy image or homeseer image. I cannot browse to the map.
    Is they some way to get it or have I got this wrong?

    thanks

    You can do it from your HS webpage. Use the menu option Plugins->HSBuddy->Media and then use the Add Folder section at the bottom to add a new folder that points to where the images are saved.

      Thanks that was too easy. Another question I have is, is it possible to make the image expand to full screen as the camera windows do with a tap.
      I looked under tap action, but couldn't find what I was looking for.

        Just got the latest download and see that my request was granted for expanding my map image. With the latest version of the plugin, I also see the odd camera error in the log is also gone.

        I can't get over how this plugin is maturing so wonderfully.

        thanks for all your work.

          I've meant to get back with this. For some reason when I select the small map, the large map is always of an older date. For example the small map has today's date but when I select it, for some reason it always shows one with the same older date of Mar-10.

          Edit: I just discovered that clearing the cache forced the large image to be current. This may be something to investigate as I suspect tomorrow it will expand today's map since it's cached but may not be refreshed. I'll try to add a refresh interval and report back.

            Hey langenet you are correct, without a refresh interval, the full-screen view of the image will used the cached version. If you set a refresh interval on the widget, the same interval will be used on the full-screen view and that means the image won't be cached.

            Thanks for noticing this, I will make a change to the full-screen viewer to always reload the image on display at least once even when the refresh interval is disabled. For now I hope adding the refresh interval is sufficient workaround.

              Thanks... I like your idea to reload on selecting the map.To waste resources on refreshing at an interval isn't necessary as it won't likely change within any short interval.
