To LowkonXC: As you see this is "beta" version of System Navigator and the 1024x768 resolution is a base.
At first I'll must finish full version of this device (this will be much soon). Then I'll try write a program which will change the size of Gadget step by step (I have some idea about...). If will be not got nothing I'll make else one Gadget for 1600x1400 resolution. So the "KING SIZE System Navigator" () will be made and sent here by anyway.

P.S. Are you sure you installed the "hoog0555_cyr2.ttf" font from System Navigator zip-file to your computer? This is very important!!!!!

To White_Moth: Sorry. I had no time to solve a problem with scrolling text yet... But I'll concern with this Today. Promise.

Best Regards.

Hi Friends, all remained bugs are already eliminated:

1. When the scrolling text is moving now the usage of CPU does not exceed 5-8% (The problem was in two Timers which controlled for moving of the text. But now I use the Sleep-Method (which in DesktopX documentation was not recommended to use broadly) and got a positive result. Conclusion: don't believe your eyes always...)
2. In the High-Speed Button Context Menu I found and corrected a mistake in the count of items (this mistake was found after disconnecting from the network).
3. The program of internet and network connections control is full changed and definitively adjusted.

I'll send the file to the Wincustomize now. It will be the version (3.03 demo).

Best Regards.

Hi Vad

I just DLed the "Update" and am pleased to say that all works very well.

I also noticed it is easier to read.

I must say that not very often I get excited about a widget, but the SD System Navigator just blows me away. I am proud to display it on my desktop just as it is. Will be anxiously looking forward to future releases.

Also I have been looking at your browser, and even though it needs more attention, I am truly impressed with your workmanship.

Thank You very much.

I agree with above, this is just remarkable, and the only thing I can see that it dosent do is make coffee in the morning...or does it? I envy your talent
Comment #25 Saturday, December 24, 2005 9:16 PM
I got an idea that would make this even cooler. Add a media player. That would make this my all time favrite widget. My all time fav is your SD Media Player. I dont have the money to buy the full version though

Very Nice

I can't get this widget to run. Running DesktopX ver. 3.0 on WinXp Pro SP2. Any ideas? I installed the font into my Windows/Fonts folder.

To Citizen dstambaugh:


The System Navigator is not a Widget. This is a GADGET. So there is not necessary to use DesktopX for its running.

Best Regards.

To aer0sense:

Big Thanks, I have found it too and already corrected. My English not very good alas...

Best Regards
Comment #31 Monday, March 13, 2006 2:08 PM
Great work! Any chance to have a version that would be more visible on a 1280X1024 screen?

Comment #32 Monday, March 13, 2006 3:47 PM
To Mr Tom:

Most certainly this will be made but several later. I have too much other unfinished plans and projects alas. However I can say that this will be absolutely other concept of SD Navigator Graphic Design.

So give me a little time and all will be OK.

Best Regards.

Brilliant stuff!

I've been avoiding anything to do with DesktopX for a long while now due to the many headaches it was giving me, but this "gadget" was way too cool to pass up. I assume because it's a gadget and doesn't rely on DesktopX then it doesn't have the inherent problems? Seems to work great with me.

The only problems I can find are the same as has already been mentioned, ie; a bit hard to read (my 46yr old eyes and my 1280 x 1024 res?), but it looks like you're onto these things and should have them sorted out before too long. Eagerly looking forward to your updates!

I was wondering what is the story with the full version, as this one has some extra features missing from it, (calender, clock, to do, web browser, etc.), or is that one still in the works for a latter release?

All the Best to you Vad_M and keep up the good work!
Brad (not the boss!)

To mrdarb:

Hi Brad,

Maybe it is hard to believe but I really was made the System Navigator with DesktopX 3.1 PRO. Moreover I am absolutely convinced that DesktopX Builder is the World Sharpest Software for development of any desktop applications (from a simple calendars to complex Graphic User Interfaces).

One year ago I did not know about DX Scripting and VBScript hardly at all. However I much wanted to make a non-standard design for my desktop. Given idea was so rage me that I have postponed all deals and began to study the programming. Now I know for sure that DesktopX with some Microsoft applications together gives us a great creative possibilities which are limited only by our fantasy or our desires.

People are subject to a miscellaneouses passions. One of the most important amongst them is the passion of creative activity.
Herewith it doesn't care by what thing we are concern with - music, painting or desktop design. It is very important for us to get a good results of our labour. But it makes us happy if these results can be useful for whomever else. So I am very glad now. (Sorry for such long posting but I haven't anybody to talk about this themes in my Country...)

However can you talk me here or by e-mail what size of font it's necessary to use for 1280x1024 resolution? I have nearly finished the beta version of SD LaunchBar and don't want that people felt inconvenience when use this device (the main usage font is "Tahoma", size on the Launch Bar buttons is #10, on the Floating Bar Launches - 8).

SD Navigator for that resolution I'll try to make on the next step. Promise.

The full version of System Navigator is available on DesktopGadgets only (sorry...)

Big Thanks and Best Wishes for you,

Hum. What is this i hear of a SD LaunchBar. Sounds Cool
Comment #36 Tuesday, March 14, 2006 11:12 PM
I just purchased the full version from DesktopGadgets, $6.00? What a bargain! You may have changed my attitude towards DesktopX and who knows, maybe one day I might even purchase DesktopX Pro and have a play myself?

You are a true inspiration to us lesser talented people, especially considering you've only been at it (DesktopX) for a year or so, and your efforts are much appreciated. Thanks for sharing this wonderful gadget.

Comment #37 Wednesday, March 15, 2006 3:36 AM
Hi Brad,

Big thanks for your great estimations of my modest activity.

But it seems me that you have got the old version of this gadget (at least the version 4.0 still inaccessible for downloading on DesktopGadgets...). If to you have got version 3.09 give me please your e-mail and I'll send you the last update of SD Navigator.

With Big Respect,
Comment #38 Wednesday, March 15, 2006 9:23 AM
I just discovered this Gem. This is the best and most comprehensive system monitoring/managing widget that i have ever used. My only complain is that at higher resolutions like 1280x1024 or above the text becomes very hard to see( i have a monitor that use 1920x1200 so it is almost impossible to see the test there )

I have the whole stardock OD suite. What else do I need to get the full version of this great widget? Despite the fact that I have been a long time OD user, I never actually used desktopX extensively. (I am a performance freak ) Seeing that this is a DesktopX widget is it possible to edit it somehow? So that I can try to make the widget fit better with higher res? (I hate the thought of making you work more )

Again thank you for the awesome widget.
Comment #39 Wednesday, March 15, 2006 7:48 PM
Hi Leth,

Big Thanks for your comment.

Regrettably but it is not a widget. I happened to make this device as a gadget because otherwise a lot of its functions worked incorrect. So there are no ways to edit something in it...

However I promised for Mr. Mrdarb and other people that I'll make this gadget much bigger. It's necessary a little time for me to finish some interesting project. Then I'll concern with increase of SD Navigator immediately. It will be a present crock.

I have made the full version of this device for DesktopGadgets only. But seems that it did not hitherto pass the aproval there...

Best Regards.
Comment #40 Wednesday, March 15, 2006 9:32 PM
Thanks for the update Vadim. is there anyway that I can get the full version then? And please take care of your other things, the widget works great right now as it is, so no need to stress to get the sizes down right for everyone.

thanks again
