Well...i have the widget in front of me..the slider works..but, after I put in numbers to convert..there is no " convert" button..the gold frame in preview picture is also not around widget. So how do I convert the numbers ?........what version of desktopX are you using ? Before I try to find out if its me or not.

Fairyy~ i am srry i couldnt answer your question earlier (i havend had to time to long on), thx for downloading, and the "converter" button is not a button, its just the animated title for the widget, also to convert u select ur conversion and type in ur number in the apropriate box and just press enter. Hope this help, and the gold bar i tink that might have come from the background in the picutre, it might be transparent. Thx again and srry for not replying right away.

Thats the problem...noone takes the time to post a comment. I have no way of knowing if the problem is with my desktopx or with your widget. Its a challenge to me when something wont work. But I cant begin to fix something if noone bothers to comment.

I tried this widget, and found it worked fairly well. I used the drop down to select a conversion. Then put a number in either box, and hit enter on keyboard. What appeared to be the right conversion showed in the other box. For example, I entered 100*C and it gave 212*F, and 3.3' (feet) = 1.00584m.

**Note, I did not include the *C and ', I just entered the numbers in the box. It is an odd design to type your entry ONTOP of the unit name...**

What I found odd was that I had been warned several times to use commas instead of decimal points, but when I tried, commas were ignored and decimals worked as I would expect. 3,3' (feet) returns 10.0584m. Note the decimal was used in the return value. Same with other conversions, 3,2*F gave 0*C and 3.2*F returned -15.984*C.

Looks like the comma / period thing is handled by your windows language version or location info.

Fairyy~ and I apparently don't have the font you used, so what we see is different than what you intended, and that may even contribute to other things not working for Fairyy~.

Thank you for the information, rabidrobot. However, I dont quite understand your comma/perioud issue, all I said in my warnings is that you cannot use the perioud when your entering the conversion, because it just gets ignored - or did that not happen to you? Thanks again.

Sorry for delay in response.

When I used the widget, commas were ignored, while decimals (periods) worked.

Overall it worked great for me, except for the fonts being off.
