It is actually quite simple and here is the code.
set xmlHTTP = server.createobject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP") xmlHTTP.open "Get", "http://www.google.com/ig/api?weather=philadelphia,pa", false xmlHTTP.send() Set xml = xmlHTTP.ResponseXml city = xml.documentElement.childNodes(0).firstChild.firstChild.attributes(0).nodeValue currenttemp = xml.documentElement.childNodes(0).firstChild.nextSibling.childNodes(1).attributes(0).nodeValue conditionstext = xml.documentElement.childNodes(0).firstChild.nextSibling.childNodes(0).attributes(0).nodeValue conditionsicon = xml.documentElement.childNodes(0).childNodes(2).childNodes(3).attributes(0).Value
Then you can just response.write the values where you need them.
Bringing the object back was pretty easy, but traversing the DOM to get the information that I was looking for was a real pain. A combination of Firefox and Firebug made selecting what I needed a lot easier.
You will also notice that I have ‘philadephia, pa’ harcoded into the URL, but where this is being used, I use an IP locator to get the IP address of the user, convert that to a city and state and put that value into the URL, so that users can get their own weather and not mine.
Also ‘conditionsicon’ brings back a relative URL to an icon image for the current conditions. If anyone has a list of all possible conditions that would be amazingly helpful.
