Weather-forecast in picture-elements

Have some challenges trying to get the weather icon (not state.icon) to show in picture-elements.
Dont face the same issue using other custom:cards.
Is this a limitation of the the weather-forecast card?
Any suggestions welcome?

The below shows the weather-forecast card correctly on its own in the dashboard.

type: weather-forecast
entity: weather.home_hourly
show_current: true
show_forecast: false
forecast_type: hourly
secondary_info_attribute: temperature

But when trying to do this within picture-elements i just get a print of below code:

type: picture-elements
elements:
  - type: custom:weather-forecast
    show_current: true
    show_forecast: true
    entity: weather.home_hourly
    forecast_type: hourly
    secondary_info_attribute: temperature
    style:
      top: 40%
      left: 40%

You posted a different code for the weather card in these cases.

Do you have a suggestion on how to get weather-forecast icons shown in picture elements?

I am not getting the question.
Icons are part of the card.

Picture-elements card may contain CUSTOM cards.
Conventional cards should be wrapped inside custom:hui-element:

type: picture-elements
elements:
  - type: custom:hui-element
    card_type: weather-forecast
    entity: weather.home_openweathermap
    forecast_type: daily
    style:
      top: 20%
      left: 50%
  - type: custom:weather-card
    entity: weather.home_openweathermap
    style:
      top: 65%
      left: 50%
image: /local/images/test/orange.jpg
type: picture-elements
elements:
  - type: custom:weather-card
    entity: weather.home_hourly
    style:
      top: 65%
      left: 50%
image: /local/images/test/orange.jpg

Thank you for confirming this work. I must have an issue with the weather-card then, because when I use this code, i get the below screenshot.Screenshot 2023-10-01 142621

Do you have it installed?

Yes. works standalone as a card but not in picture-elements.

Check my post - a custom card is used inside picture elements.
Are you sure that custom:weather-card works as standalone ?

100%.

These are diff cards. You posted a screen with a standard card.
Check again my code.

If I use your code I get these results. Not like yours!
Weather Forecast card is available as a new card when adding to the dashboard, but not the weather-card


Custom cards (weather-card, hui-elements) should be INSTALLED.
They are not present in HA setup by default.
Find them in Github & install.
For beginners, the easiest way to install custom cards is via HACS. Google HACS and install it, then install these cards via HACS.

Thank you for your patience and help.
Solved now by installing Hui Elements completely missed installing this. Such a dumb ass thing to do.
