After starting up I took a screen shot. You can see that the tray icon text is in italic though the weather data was retreived.
Then I retreived the weather data manually an took another screen shot. You can see that the temperature text is normal as it should be after successful retreiving data.
And while I was testing question 2 I noticed something else. When the program is started and I immediately manually retreive the weather data, the font is set to normal. But then the program retreives the data itself (Options tab General: Pause 30 seconds…) and the font is set back to Italic.
siliconman01, what happens if you also uncheck the “Set tray icon to Italic until first weather update” box in the “General” section of the Weather Watcher Live Options window?
Ah Ha! That option unset stops the Italic display on startup.
So with “Set tray icon to Italic when update attempt fails” being set and the above option “Set tray icon to Italic until first weather update” being unset results in no Italic on program startup…hmm. That sounds contradictory.
Auto update rate is set to “Update in realtime” and “Retrieve forecasts” is set which I assume causes it to try update the weather when the program starts up.
This issue continues into V6.011. If the option “Set tray icon to Italic until first weather update” is active, WWL will open italic, then change to normal for about 2 seconds and revert back to italic. Manually retrieving the weather will stop this behavior; however, it may take 3-4 attempts to do so.
For example, on this morning’s system startup, the temp first displayed italic 32 degrees…then promptly switched to normal 38 degrees…and 1-2 seconds later changed to italic 38 degrees. Two manual retrieve weather attempts converted it back to normal 38 degrees. I’ve never seen it convert back to italic once this initial flurry ends.
The pic below shows my current settings…which does not create the issue because the option “Set tray icon to Italic until first weather update” is unchecked.
