I am having one problem with this widget. I keep getting a script error for the 'gt3_cpu_monitor_back'. It will say "type mismatch" with a specific value following it (i.e. 'left', 'c', and '100'.
The line(s) this error occurs on seem to always be 22, 23 and 30. It doesn't give a
code listing.

If I disable the script, then then I cannot sink/raise the object into/from the background.

Any ideas as to what is wrong?

Really like this, it has all the info I usually want and doesn't take up much room. Runs fine but I was hoping you would update it with more colours like your later ones? Please. In any case, thanks for all these great widgets.

will be updating this soon to comply with the other GT3 widgets

Hey Tiggz, just so you know....the problem with the script error disappeared with the new beta DX.

Love the work. Keep it up.

Does anyone know where the co-ordinates for the location of a widget on the desktop is stored? My GT3 CPU monitor has gone missing on my oddly configured dual screen setup (a laptop screen 1024x768 to the left and a portrait oriented LCD 1024x1280 on the right). The CPU widget just dissappeared one day. Taskmanager says it is running but I can't find it on the screen.

Tiggz, love your stuff btw.

... i have the same problem... when I updated to the latest beta of Dx, the cpu meter no longer shows up on the desktop (i can see it in taskmanager though...)

grrr at dx teething pains

I guess some gremlin or other has shunted the widget off screen and then the coordinates were saved - fix this by looking in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Stardock\DesktopX\Widget\Tiggz\GT3mm this is the key where all the mini-widget data is being stored. If in doubt just delete the whole key, it will just mean that the next time you run the widgets it will be as if it was the first time (widgets should then reappear in the middle of the screen).

I heard a rumour that widget positions being saved in between uses is being added to dx soon - I hope so, will save alot of fiddling around

Thanks Tiggz worked like a charm. (For those following along GT3mm in the Registry is the weather meter + clock + color picker, GT3meters is the CPU monitor )

every single one of these widgets crashes desktopX. i'm running the latest version.
Comment #32 Sunday, February 27, 2005 11:57 AM
seriously, what a disappointment. every other widget i have works perfectly, but none of the GT3's do.

Hey Tiggz - Your GT3 widgets are the reason I got DX, so needless to say I really like your work
However I'm getting the same error mentioned in comment #22 by Kockroach.
"I keep getting a script error for the 'gt3_cpu_monitor_back'. It will say "type mismatch" with a specific value following it (i.e. 'left', 'c', and '100'. This is on line 23.
I've deleted the widget completely including clearing the widget cache before installing the new download (In case I corrupted the widget somehow.)

Hello Tiggz...

Your GT3 theme is the only one I use. But I'm having a small problem with this meter. I can't get it to sink into the desktop. Any help?

Great program. Used this about a week till I got a nasty virus and had to download a bunch of up to date AV programs, now it does not work. It is now stuck on 1/4 full on the bars and 20 ram in use don't know how to get this fix again.
