Developing this gadget

Post  lostciti on Mon Apr 26, 2010 10:00 pm

Hi!

I'm a developer who is interested in add new functions to this gadget and to translate it into spanish (cuz i use it all time...).

This gadget it's very good, but needs some usability improvement. Maby i can do it Razz

So, can i have the source? Razz If i can't, would be fine to add window resize hability and other necesary stuff.

thanks btw and keep up the good work!

Kind Regards

Thanks, but I am not going to share development tasks lately.

However, I am always open for feature requests, if you check the changelog on this forum, you can see that a lot of feature requests has been implemented already.

Spanish translation is already done in v1.2.2, which has been posted to windows live site more than three weeks ago. Unfortunately I don't have any information on when windows live guys are going to accept the upload Evil or Very Mad

What do you mean on "window resize ability"? I think it is already supported.

Other feature requests are also welcome.

@Lostciti: you should post your wish list.
Here is mine Very Happy
- could we customize the colored bullets? (the rectangles are a bit ugly right now)
- a black skin (a bit in this style http://addgadget.com/) would be nice
- the button to switch mail/calendar views should be located in the top bar (right now it takes 2 clicks to sxitch)
- is it possible to get the focus when hovering the widget? If I want to scroll events with the mouse wheel, I need to click the widget before scrolling.
- show a tooltip when hovering event with a long description that does not fit in the widget.

I put the question on my list and will find out what could be done there. Ideas are welcome.

Pffff... I really-really-really hate dealing with themes Smile Btw, with Googler, you can create your own themes.

- the button to switch mail/calendar views should be located in the top bar (right now it takes 2 clicks to sxitch)
Okay but where to put it? The only thing I can imagine is to put the button besides the menu button, but that makes sense only if the gadget width is configured larger than 150-160px

- is it possible to get the focus when hovering the widget? If I want to scroll events with the mouse wheel, I need to click the widget before scrolling.
As far as I know, it is not possible.

- show a tooltip when hovering event with a long description that does not fit in the widget.
And the description consists of...?

Colored bullet: real round bullet just like in iphone calendar interface would be prettier.
Switch button: you have the menu button on top right, why don't you put the switch button on top left
Description: I mean the title of the event, if it's too long, it will be cut. Just like folder names in windows explorer. Long names that are cut, are displayed in full in a tooltip when you hover them. Is that description clear?

Colored bullet: ok
Switch button: top left position is reserved for error notifier
Description: it seems to be clear, but ... it has been working the way you write at least for a year... Smile You just need to click on the gadget to make it focused, tooltips unfortunately aren't displayed without that (this is an Internet Explorer 'feature', the same thing happens in the real browser window, while for example FF works well...)
