word wrap ... please!!!! Empty word wrap ... please!!!!

this (Googler in my case) is the best calendar gadget out there, but ... your product drives me crazy in that it doesn't wordwrap the calendar entries.

At the very least is there no way to change this:

5:00PM:some even....
to this

some event of intere...

with a carriage return after the event time. I would think this is much easier to do than the wordwrap programming, and it would be a significant improvement.

And yes, I know i can widen the gadget and get more of a display but that is not elegant and it is distractive. And yes, I know i can mouse over and see the full text. Neither of those is good enough, there should be either a full wordwrap or at least an option to see more text via the method I described above.

Actually you can do it with Googler themes.

For example, you can modify wood theme so that it wrap words instead of clipping:

  1. Edit theme.css with your favorite editor (it should be c:\Users\[yourosuser]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets\Googler.gadget\themes\wood.v1.2\theme.css)
  2. Add the following to the end of theme.css:
    a.priortruncate {
       overflow: visible;
       white-space: normal;
       text-overflow: clip;
       padding-left: 2px;

    a.truncate {
       overflow: visible;
       white-space: normal;
       text-overflow: clip;
       padding-left: 2px;
  3. Click settings then cancel (it will reload the theme also).
