v3.5 iPad: Custom views not loading/reloading
Posted 09 March 2012 - 04:56 AM
When I try to reload the view, only the pwc file is refreshed. Though it references several pwx files, they are not reloaded even if they've been recently modified. Even when I delete and resinstall the view, old (cached?) copies of the pwx files are apparently still being used.
I unistalled and resinstalled PocketWeather and my view. This time, it loaded the all-new copies of the pwx files, but not any of the icons I included with the view. And now the pwx files are once again no longer being reloaded.
Can I go back to the previous version somehow?

If you have a pwc file that references pwx files, it may be that they need to be in the same directory and packaged as a pwy. I have had similar problems when trying to place files (particularly with the same name as default built-in files) in a root directory.
There are several caveats when packaging files as described in the Wiki on CustomViews.
If you send me the files, I'll take a look and see what the problem is and hopefully resolve it for you.
btw - nice to see you hear again

I'll try the pwy approach first. I was hoping to maintain my directory structure as I plan to supplement my iPad (original version) with an iPhone soon and wanted to share Dropboxed resources like the icons and templates.

So I'm not sure about consolidating resources for both iOS devices -- just yet.
I have the iPhone 4 -- and love it.
Hope things work with restructuring of directories -- not a big deal, but after you install your Custom WeatherIcons (if you use your own set instead of the defaults) by putting its folder within the zipped package, delete this folder from the package to save space and a lot of relaunch/REDOWNLOAD time. The WeatherIcons will remain usable in their cache.

Major changes in store for PW (iOS); if I told you, I'd have to kill you
