  1. Issue Creating Live Tile That Updates


    Hi,
    I had created a Windows Vista/7 Gadget to gather weather information from the following site: http://orsl.montana.edu/weather/ORSLweather.php. This is basically an image that updates every five minutes with the latest climate info from a weather station at a University. Pinning the site doesn't create a tile that actively shows the latest image, so I am trying to create a live tile for use with Windows 8/10. While I have some coding experience, I am not a programmer and am getting stymied making this seemingly simple task occur. Below are copies of the XML and HTML files I used for the Gadget I created for Vista/7.

    If this goes beyond help I can get here and there is a better source for this do not hesitate to point me in the right direction.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

  2. can user enter text into live tile?

    Is it possible to create a live tile on WinPhone 8 that has user controls?

    For example, the Live Tile accepts user input? and have a "submit" button right on the Live Tile?

    Family room - Windows Phone 8 - Notifications

    Hi,

    i love using the family room options available in windows phone. i have created a live tile for the family room . But however the live tile doesn't update information . For ex: if a member adds photos or updates notes in family room , the live tile remains
    static and hence i always miss out on the updates happening inside family room. It requires the member to manually go inside the family room to check for any updates in various sections. I feel that microsoft must introduce Live Tile updations and Notifications
    for activities under family room.
