I would realy like to work on a VB6 front end that I could realy go
nuts customising. I have been studying the NWS's servers and data
for going on 6 years now. So if I could figure out how to import the
data into VB6 their wouldnt be any bounderys. I realy dont want to
be stuck acessing the log from Heavy Goof to do it. All I work in is
VB6. Been working in it off and on for going on 5 years now. Is
their possibly a MSI DLL we could write a VB6 wrapper for or
something? You know their are more VB6 programmers. It would be real
popular. Not to mention their is lots of custom guage controls under
VB6 at Planet Source Code. What I didnt like was the poor form
control in Heavy Weather. That thing looks like a thrown together
mess. I did start a mod of my XML NWS feed reader for my Underground
feed. Check it out here:
It still has a lot of info feilds missing. But their is enough code
to serve as a basic example. Its running thru a PHP proxy server so
their isnt any browser securety issue.
