There are two separate methods to create these screens. One uses CC2's built-in regexp functions, the other is a custom plugin.

Screen zip file (using jdgordon's jdg_rss.dll):jd_rss_Weather.zip

Install Instructions:

Copy jdg_rss.dll to the: C:\Program Files\CrystalControl2\cc2-service directory.

Then follow the instructions below.

Screen zip file (using regexp):regex_rss_Weather.zip

Install Instructions:

Copy the screens out of the zip into the: C:\Program Files\CrystalControl2\cc2-config\screens directory, add them to your module.

You will have to modify these screen files for your zip code or airport code.

Go to http://www.rssweather.com and find the rss screen for your area. Copy and paste the URL for this web page into the screen file in the line that says:
Code:
opt01="url= *Paste your URL here* "
For example, here is how the line would look for Marion, Iowa:
Code:
opt01="url=http://www.rssweather.com/rss.php?config=&forecast=zandh&place=marion&state=ia&zipcode=&country=us&county=19113&zone=IAZ052&alt=rss20a"
Included are 16x2, 20x2 and 20x4 screen files.
