Keep up the excellent work!

Go for it as far as the functionality is concerned.

Specific graphics, just check with Adam.

Click 'Download' and you will be prompted to download or open the theme. Save it to your machine somewhere.

To install, right click the DesktopX icon in the taskbar, and select 'Import object'. Click 'Browse' and then find the save object on your machine.

_martin_, my CPU pegged out at 100 and I couldn't get any of the functions on the calendar to work correctly Sorry. It looks great though.

Yes, I think that occassionally DX gets a bit confused by a lot of script.

I find that if you can restart DX quickly as it's loading, or save the theme then load it cleanly DX settles down.

I could however do to clean up some of the code. I'll do that now.

Cleaned up the code a bit now.

Also added a clock based on a new text plugin by Alberto.

I have norton and I got that message too. I hesitated until I realized that the software involved was from a safe source. And, I had no problems. Note that Norton only called it malicious script and not a virus.

Its too bad about the text color. That would be really neat. But, this version is twice as big. Wow! Come on, how about half as large, not twice as large as the other version. I have no room for icons. The calender would be awesome without all the problems. Too large, no text color support, and how do you move it? It stays in the center of my screen and won't move. The other version allowed you to drag and move, but not this one. Shrink this baby down, get color text support, clean up the code (I also noticed black rectangles behind some text in the appointment section.)

I normally don't say all these negative things unless I really like it. I want to use this is why. Just needs a little work and this baby would be awesome and could replace rainlender.

Got the version with the clock? If so it should be dragable.

Anyhow, I'm now doing a Rainlendar beater (or it will be when text colour is sorted)

Very Nice Martin, it looks like you made a totally different skin for this. Are you saying the calender itself is sizable now? That would be great. Maybe you should put them both up as different skins with the sizable function. This is great.
Comment #14 Thursday, May 01, 2003 4:33 AM

No, unfortunately it it not sizable. This is not possible yet, as you can't control an object's size via script (or font size).

I expect these features will arrive in time. Basically, as long as you keep all the source graphic filenames the same you can change the look of the object completely. You can also change the font size of objects by tweaking each object individually 9but that's a bit of a pain - hence why I hope everyone likes this smaller version!

Just want to say thank you for doing code work like this...

I should technially be able to do some of this stuff.. but I forgot my VB code stuff.

back to the drawing board.

thanks for uploading. and for contributing.

Comments like that make it a pleasure Joe.

Comment #17 Sunday, May 04, 2003 7:20 PM
I didn't have a memory problem with it. It could be a issue of resources for elvee. I have thirteen executables loaded at startup, on a PIII750 and the calender runs fine. You might check your registry. I've cleaned up over 500 orphans in mine. Most importantly, check for spyware. It will slow any system down to a crawl. There are alot of tricks for tweaking computers for maximum performance, especially WinXP, but I'll keep this short.

Hey, Martin....the Calendar works great...to an extent. At first, when I load the Object...it gave me a bunch of errors. So, I saved my theme, unloaded Desktop X, reloaded it, gave me a bunch of codes that needed to be enabled (such as, Object CalPrefStore). Afterwards, it works, but I can't seem to get to add appointments....how can I fix this?......I would LOVE To see a working version of this.

Keep up the good work.
