I’ve published an updated version of my Australian Weather Radar Gadget.

I had a request from Simon to enable the 256km images as he lives just out of range of his closest radar’s 128km image.

A small number of the Bureau’s radars also support a 64km image (Adelaide’s Buckland Park being one), so I also added that option while I was at it.

When you set the image height, it also now resizes the “centering” image on the settings page, so it should now correspond to the same size as is shown in the sidebar.

Ideally, I’d re-write the re-centering so that it would use a drag/drop method like Google Maps etc, but my initial trials weren’t successful. Either I’m not coding it right, or drag/drop is disabled for sidebar gadgets.

Despite comments on the gadget page asking for weather details, I’m not planning to add them to this gadget at this stage - I figure it’s better to concentrate on one thing and try and do that well.
