Awesome gadget

Post  Baggins on Fri May 08, 2009 9:44 am

Just a huge thanks. You have no idea how long I spent looking for a gadget or application that could simply read .ics information from multiple calendars, and display it neatly on the desktop.

One thing: It sounds like mousing over an entry that is too long should bring up a tooltip with the entended entry in it. It doesn't on my system. I'm running Win 7 RC (Build 7100).

But huge thanks again.

I am glad you find this gadget useful.

I have not implemented the tooltip functionality you mentioned as currently I can implement only a solution in which the tooltip appears only if you click on the gadget first to make it the focused window. And I don't like that way...

All good.

Another question, what ar ethe odds of getting the ability to authenticate a proxy built in, or better yet, the ability to use the Internet Explorers current internet settings to do so.

I have quick checked that proxy thing and as I see the proxy that is set in Internet Explorer is used automatically already. At least I set a fake proxy in IE and the gadget could not access Google Calendar service afterwards, and it worked again after switching off the proxy setting in IE. (FYI, it is also the expected behaviour as sidebar gadgets are run by Internet Explorer.)

Hrm. I'll check it tomorrow, but I think it may be an issue as the proxy at work is an authenticated one. And because the gadget doesn't have an authentication for the proxy, it just gets denied. IE asks for a password every time I want to use the internet.

Ahm, authenticated proxies are definitely not supported if the user name and password need to be provided interactively.
