New Feature Request - Minimized Task Bar Temp Display

Post by sjlammer » Mon May 03, 2010 6:56 am

I was thinking about getting a TV Tuner card so i can watch some tube while I'm brewing. The problem is that I want to have some clue what is going on with the brewery while Im watching.

Is there a way you could incorporate a skin or taskbar item that displays the temperatures while the screen is minimized?

Here is an example of what i was thinking:

http://weather.weatherbug.com/

on the upper right they have "Weather on your taskbar"

Thanks!

That's a cool idea. If somebody can write a taskbar widget based on the open interface, we're willing to help support it.

Old thread, I know.... but i can probably pull this together in pretty short order. anyone have any good abstraction libraries written for getting the info? Not that it appears all that hard, but i'm not one to re-invent something that is out there...

So do people want like a taskbar widget for pc? or (since OP mentioned tv card) are you looking for like a media center app?

Here's one example of a BCS interface abstraction:

I know there are others as well, I hope they will chime in.

MooCS is a great little library!

Does anyone know how to contact the author, I have a couple of questions but the email address on GitHub looks dead.
