Martin - always appreciate your work - think you may need to check this tho as it doesn't appear to be set up as a widget, but as an object. No biggy - but it may confuse a newbie.

Martin.. This is a really nice expansion to the original. I am having one problem with the set though. If I individually delete the user object, the text of my name gets placed in the upper top left of my screen and I can no longer it or delete it unless I delete all the objects as a group, (associated objects). This is the only one it does it with. Maybe I am doing somthing wrong here Great set of objects as usual Martin Thank you!

Great object Martin. Loving it! Oh, and sure, this is an object as well, but it was a piece of cake to turn into a widget.
Comment #7 Friday, August 20, 2004 10:49 PM
Excellent! Simple, useful widgets.
Comment #8 Sunday, August 22, 2004 4:20 PM
Nice but not a widget, it's a .dxpack.

Wincustomize got confused over the weekend and told me I was "Unauthorised" to update so I think it got upset then.

Fixing it now.

Very groovy.

Good job. This really *fits* on my desktop setup.

Question: On Uptime object, shouldn't the counter roll over to 1 day after 24:00:00 is hit? Currently, mine is showing 24:13:22...

Comment #12 Friday, September 17, 2004 8:21 AM
Thanks for fix on the uptime issue. Now if this can just be done as a DX Object with the change so I can customize it to my system, that would be great. Any chance you might do this soon?
Comment #13 Saturday, September 18, 2004 3:32 AM
There's no need - just "Import" from DX, check the "Widgets" radio button rather than "Objects" and browser to it then it will load into DX like a regular object so you can edit it.

Excdellent Work

Looks nice but:
1) How can I delete an individual item
2) How do I reverse day/month here in Europe we put the day before the month
3) I cannot not make the DesktopX to load at startup because I already have too much loaded at startup, so how can I make it to remember the colorsetting used before.
I start DEsktopX manually after startup.

1) If you look at the object navigator you will see that each item is clearly defined so select the back object and all it's children and delete them. The object was developed before the concept of widgets was core to DX so it's not as optimised as it could be but I haven't time to fix it at the moment.

2) I'm in England, but just developed the object for the main audience. Edit the DigiDate object, and edit the "Date using text states" ability to change the output style to dd'/'MM'/'yy

3) There isn't a mechanism to save the color. This was originally done as a demo that people could work from. It should be fairly trivial to edit the scripts in the "back objects" to set the image and hue at startup.

Hope this helps,

Thanks Martin, allthough a bit late from my side I guess; but your reply after 9 months wasn't the quickest either. We must have both terrible busy lives I guess. Apologies and greet's.
