Hi,

First off: Very nice package! Can I get the weather report text in Danish (or any language other than English) as it is shown here:
http://www.google.com/ig/directory?hl=da&url=www.google.com/ ...

?

Thanks,

Niels

I get it: If I add "&hl=da" instead of =en I get it in Danish. However... this is the result:
Warning: SimpleXMLElement::__construct() [function.SimpleXMLElement---construct]: Entity: line 1: parser error : Input is not proper UTF-8, indicate encoding ! Bytes: 0xA0 0x25 0x22 0x2F in C:\Apache\htdocs\scripts\gweather\google_weather_api.php on line 24

Seems your script doesn't like funny characters like ĉĝċ... :o)

Got it: I changed line 23 of the api.php to this:
$xml_str = utf8_encode(file_get_contents($requestAddress,0));

-this utf8-encodes the string, and the error goes away.

Thank you, me! :o)

im getting negative temps,
for exmaple:
Min: -14 &#8451;
Max: -11 &#8451;

but should be:
Min: 14 &#8451;
Max: 11 &#8451;

Min 14 and Max 11 does not make sense, either? Are you sure you have picked the right city?

hi dude, well i get the same error when try to use another languaje but i fixed using the utf8_encoder like niels write, also use it again in the day_of_week['data'] to get ok the display using the spanish languaje that have accents like Sábado.

But i get the same Min: & Max: with negative values, so can you tell me in what format the xml is displayed the value? is in farenheit? i also check the formula to convert °F to °C and is ok. so what happend here?

OK, sorry now i undestand why appear negative the value of min & max and in my case is because is not neccesary user the convert function because i use Languaje 'es' instead of 'en' in

$requestAddress = "http://www.google.com/ig/api?weather=".trim(urlencode($this->location))."&hl=es";

so the convertion is allready done in the xml value in °C that is what i need, so you must check and compare first in what format you need if and check the XML file, who? just write the url in the IE and put your city like this

http://www.google.com/ig/api?weather=chicago&hl=es

and you can compare the values openning another one with other langueje like english like this:

http://www.google.com/ig/api?weather=pachuca&hl=en

Hi,
In google_weather_api.php I have added "&encoding='UTF-8'" to the $requestAddress var.
In the php function that actually displays the weather I add a UTF8 decode function to each weather element, such as:
utf8_decode($weather->current->wind_condition['data'])
Everything is now shown to my Danish satisfaction, including the letters ĉĝċĈĜĊ. ;o)
