  1. Blockbuster Movies Docklet

    I'm using SysStats with RocketDock. Can anyone please point me to a document or set of instructions where it details how to configure docklets? I've read the help document that comes with the software. I created a docklet to list my Blockbuster Online movies Queue reading from an RSS feed. I created an XML Meter to pull from the RSS and then overlays to display the movies. However, I don't know all the available commands to use in the Selector box for Overlays. I also don't know how to access all of the data properly. Example: I used this to list the movies: //item[1]/title A few issues I'm having: 1. For movies with long titles, they extend past the background image. I'm looking to either truncate the title and then put a '...' or something, or maybe wrap it to a new line. 2. For movies with special characters (like &), I don't know how to escape these. So, right now the movie title shows up as 'Jay & Silent Bob' instead of 'Jay & Silent Bob' 3. I'd like to be able to click the docklet to launch Blockbuster's site and automatically login. However, I don't know how to embed the username/password in the request. I'd be happy to zip and provide what I've done so far. Thanks in advance and I apologize if I'm posting anything incorrectly.
  2. SysStats configuration help.

    I'm using SysStats with RocketDock. Can someone please point me to a document or set of instructions where it details how to configure docklets? I've read the help document that comes with the software. Specifically I'm looking for how to configure the Format, Meter, Selector settings in the Label window using parameters like %d, or whatever. I'm currently working with a scrolling weather docklet that simply says (null) above the image. I'd like to pull the actual day from the XML feed so that I know for which day the forecast pertains. Thanks in advance and I apologize if I'm posting anything incorrectly. This is my first one. - Brian
