Dashboard Gadgets ported to Konfabulator

304 posts in this topic

Well, I think these deserve another thread, because they sorta started getting released on one that didn't quite fit the topic.

Also, the first post (this one), can be updated instead of requiring people to search about the thread.

All widgets here are the products of the hard of Ghostwalker and myself.

Dashboard Stickies (Spawning)

OK guys here you go: Dashboard StickyNotes with spawning! Once you run this, a tiny little yellow note will appear with two buttons: a cross and a plus sign (see screenshot). The cross closes the spawning controller, and the plus sign spawns a new sticky note. NOTE THAT SPAWNED NOTES WILL RELOAD AT STARTUP LIKE NORMAL WIDGETS UNTIL YOU CLOSE THEM. ONCE YOU CLOSE THEM, YOUR DATA STORED ON THEM IS DELETED. Based on the Ancestor spawning widget, which in turn is based on spawning code written by Arlo. Made from scratch other than that.

Great stuff saladin and duckie ;) I have one suggestion about the Stickies... instead of a seperate spawning controller, could you not have a single button built into the current stickie? Say, have a small mouse-over plus symbol in the bottom left, like the 'flip over' button... Just a suggestion, I reckon it would clean up the system a bit

i think the only thing that i can think of glitch wise, is the graphix on the close button for the stickies. its kind of poor quality. but nice release.

Any chance of us seeing the iTunes controller?

umm... the reason they are called "teaser" pictures is because they previewing something that it is to come, and I know loads of people have really been waiting for this for a long time (including myself).

Unlike the one you have, this one retrieves the definitions. No idea about any sort of ETA

can anyone give me a good, big picture of the dashboard dictionary gadget, and tell me if the left/right buttons are for toggling dictionary/thesaurus mode, or switching between definitions?

its not the resources I need, cause I got them from another thread here.

I just want a nice picture of it to make sure I get the feel of the widget right.

I just did a rehaul of it today because I didn't have any structure before. Now its very fast and flexible... makes a release seem a lot closer than I thought :)

The one on the Apple site is pretty small.

Oh, and for those you emailing me, moaning that only 1 definition is given in the screenshots, take a look:
