How to extend the weather bar to 10 day forecast RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Outlook 2013 the weather bar was introduced. By default it shows only a 3 day forecast. Is there anyway to extend this to a 10 day forecast?

    There is this article on extending the weather bar: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj228383.aspx
    Using the default service it normally returns a 5 day forecast when invoked from the browser, is there a way to have this return the 10 day (or an arbitrary number of days) forecast?

Answers

  • The web service only returns 5 days, the schema does not allow to specify the number of days to return.

    Same for the UI - 3 days is all you get. You can of course display more days in your own UI and retrieve the data using either your own code or using the RDOWeatherServices object in Redemption (which uses the Outlook service and returns 5 days only).
