Windows 7: Custom SevenForums Gadgets


26 Jan 2009   #1

Windows 7 RC 7100 32bit/64bit
 
 

I couldn't sleep last night (it's 7.50 am in Greece now) so I thought I should give it a go with creating gadgets...

I created one that lists the latest posts of this forum.

Feel free to download and test it.

It's a beta version, I'll be doing some upgrades, fixing the looks and stuff.

Please post feedback and bugs, if you like it.

Cheers

Another small gadget I made today.
It's nothing special, just a SevenForums customized clock, only I have added Digital Clock and Date options too.

Special thanks to Mr.Grim for supplying modified logos (taken
from the other gadget I made)

Note   Note
I haven't found a way to "pack" it , yet, so please copy the gadget folder to your
C:\Users\your_user_name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets

actually a "packed" gadget is just a zipped gadget renamed to .gadget...
try it just remember not to have any folders inside meaning before the gadget .xml and other stuff....

this is just to show you...
i repacked it so you can see....

I'd say so, congrats Limneos on your first gadget and promotion. On some feedback, can you add the ability to collapse it when you start customizing?
