Windows 7: Windows 7 gadget and Windows authentication?

Windows 7 gadget and Windows authentication?

Hi everybody,

I'm new at gadget development, so I already have a problem :)

I want to make a gadget that will, for a start, be returning user name through windows authentication. I'm not sure is this even possible to do?

I've already done an asp web service, which returns user name. Then I've done a html file, from which I'm calling that web service with ajax. And it is all working perfectly fine in web browser.

But when I convert it to a gadget, I get An error occured.

Here is the part of code that is returning an error. As we can see, GetUser function is called, but for some reason i get error.


type: "POST",

contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",

url: "http://localhost:888/Service.asmx/GetUser",

dataType: "json",

success: function (data) { $('.result').html("User: " + data.d); },

error: function (e) { $('.result').html("An Error Occured"); }

If you have any ideas, how to do it in a easier way, I will be happy to hear it :)
