Hi all,
after more than a year I'm finally releasing this to the public (it's now on hobbes pub/incoming).
See if you like it!
Above is the old standard monthly calendar gadget, and below is my new gadget.

Bye

Great, it looks great - great work :o)

Now we just need to wait for the next major release of the PNGIO I/O proc, the gadget will go from looking great to looking fantastic.

Again, great work Cris :o)

Do you think it would make much difference?

That is to ask; Is there really much difference in quality from *.GIF to *.PNGs?

Slick, slick, slick!

I see I'm going to have to re-install WPSWizard!

Hi Cris,

it would be great, if the calendar also shows the number of weeks. In my job, it would be nice to have it always on the desktop. could you still add this feature? Thanks in advance, if so!

Regards
Rudy

Hi Rudy,
sorry for the late reply... I did not notice your message until today.

Could you please explain a little more in detail your request? I'm interested in adding the feature.

Thankyou!

Hi Cris,

thanks for your response!

Would be great.
So, what I mean is just the numbers of weeks in a year.
Like:

FEBRUARY 2006
Week Mo Tu We Do Fr Sa Su
5 1 2 3 4 5
6 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
7 13 14 15 16 17 18 19
8 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
9 27 28


Sorry, I can't bring it in the right form here, but I belive, now you know what I mean. Maybe the numbers of weeks could be in bold letters or different color.

Thanks for your attention!

kind regards
Rudy

Hi Cris,

yes, I love it! It's a very nice and usefull calendar to the WPS.
Thanks very much to this great work.

Just a notice: When I install the new version, the letters run out of border.
I did bring it with an other font in correct size for the window, but its also good to have own coice for that.

Again Thanks!

Hi Rudy,
read the "upgrade" section in the readme.
This is probably due to the fact that it is using the old font as registered in the WPSWizard INI file.
Using the CleanIni.cmd program should solve the problem, because the gadget can then use the new default font, which is tighter.

A nifty addition (I don't need it now as much as I used to) would be the Julian date (number of days into the year) optionally the ability to show how many days are left instead/also.

Andy,
that would be really easy, since rexx provides an integrated function to do that.
But I'd have to redraw the background to accommodate yet another column... or I may leave it up to the user to choose between having the week number or the julian date.
What do you think?
BTW, at the moment I'm busy coding another gadget which is a bit more complex... so I think it will take me some time.

I don't know where to put it realestate-wise. I don't know if a new column is worthwhile or not. At this point for me it would just be nifty addition, there was a time that I used it which is what made me think of it, so putting your time to the other gadget is probably more worthwhile.

Hi Cris,

I translated your New monthly calendar gadget to german language for my own use. So, now all the text and the menue is in german. The readMe.txt is not yet fully translated, but I would like still to do it. Hope you permit me to use it with that changes in the script.
If you are interessted to include the german translation to your packet of New monthly calendar gadget, then please contact me on email.

I have attached the actural gif file in case others want to use it. Rename Chris's gcalendar.gif to something else, copy this to the

wpswizard\bin\gadgets directory.

Restart the WPS and then the "newmonthgadget.cmd" file in the Startup directory.

Use it however you want. You may want to create a folder for additional backgrounds in case other backgrounds are created by others.

Very nice gaget. I have my xworkplace startup folder set to reboot only so on desktop restarts the calendar didn't restart. I fixed that by creating a second xworkplace startup folder set to all restarts and put the calendar in it. This works great. You might want to include that in the readme. Thanks

Hi everybody,
a new release of the calendar is now on hobbes.

It comes with translations for italian and german, besides english, and it adapts automatically to your configured language (provided it is one of the supported languages).

It also comes with a new translation system which makes it very easy to add new languages.

Thankyou for your interest!
Bye
