Note: the shortcut is created in \Windows\Start Menu\Programs with the contact's lastname, firstname. In Androkkid you can then change the icon by replacing it by a picture.

Nice idea. And I'm thinking that, with the right file manager, those could be moved to their own memory card folder so it'd be easier to maintain in case of disaster.

WMD agenda/tasks are looking very nice.

New request for WMD Tasks:
* showUndatedTasks=<yes|no> - I have a bunch of undated tasks that in the past were my very low priority list of things to do. I don't want them to show on my androkkid/"today" screen. WMDTasks seems to be showing these undated tasks rather than more important tasks with due date in the next few days. Or maybe we just need a couple sort options...
*sortOrderOne=<priority|duedate>
*sortOrderTwo=<priority|duedate>

I know, I should get some of these tasks off my list so I don't need a complex way to sort them ;)

I modified the coquette background to height off 300, so I can nicely get wmd-agenda and wmd-tasks on one QVGA screen using that skin.

wmdirk,

In some of your spare time

Would it be hard to create a widget that displays a text string from the registry with once per sec or so refresh? There is a status line mortscript that shows misc information pulled from various registry settings. And I have something similar (from my rltoday days) to show info like missed call name/number, next appt, or if battery is low, or current song playing in mortplayer, etc...

Seems like it would be pretty easy compared to everything you have going with agenda/tasks I've been wanting to attempt this myself but had trouble building with the SharpDevelop tool (can't find the compactframework files) and I haven't had time to figure it out. Now it shows...
"This project requires .NET Compact Framework v3.5, which is not installed on this machine."
But I had a more detailed error last time I tried it which pointed to some missing file.

Another similar idea would be to use the registry value to pick an image/icon to display. This could make a reusable/generic bluetooth/wifi indicator icon widget. If registry values are 0,1,2, the "skin" would just have file images named 0.png, 1.png,2.png which would be displayed.


Anyway..... Thanks in advance for your consideration.

Here's LilCoquette for WMD-Tasks & a screenshot. I removed a couple of unneeded appointment settings in settings text. The background is the only thing that changed in the graphics & that was via a little math, then rescaling in Gimp for Windows.

Radar Script
Here is a MortScript I put together that downloads and displays an animated radar from Accuweather. It's extremely rough around the edges (no real error handling), but it works. This is actually a dumbed down version of the Goraps mortscript. I created this to have a radar accompany Goraps weather widgit.

All you need to do to use it is change three variables in the script:

"viewer" - Set this to your image viewer, or just leave it as is for "Pictures and Videos"

"radarlink" - Set this to the address where the image you want to download resides.

"imagefile" - Set this to the destination and filename of the downloaded image. By default it just drops an image file in the root of your storage card.

Here's what it does:
1. Connect to internet.
2. Download a picture file and save to card.
3. Open a photo viewer and display picture.

"Pictures and Videos" displays animated gifs so you can have it download an animated radar - yay!

Feel free to improve it, my MortScripting stinks!

Do you know where in the registry the information is located? What do I need to install to try it out?

I created a small calculator widget, which actually serves as an example for the WMDAndrokkidLib for developers. The widget contains the lib (which is also used by WMD-Tasks and can be put in the Androkkid main folder (where the exe is located) to be shared by these applications).
It's rather basic and I haven't really put much work in the graphics yet, but if you're interested, you can find it on my site.

The next one will be WMD-Clock+

This is the mortscript I was referring to (it has gotten rather large it looks like)...
-http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=574557
-Looks like it stores the info in HKCU/Software/My_Utilities

Some mortscripts used the cellular carrier to display info like this...
-RegWriteString ("HKLM","Software\Microsoft\Ril","CarrierName", status)

Having a setting for the registry location to read the string from would be nice
-RegEntryToRead=HKCU\Software\My_Utilities
-RegEntryToRead=HKCU\Software\myscripts\status
-RegEntryToRead=HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Ril\Carrier Name

Here is a simplified and UNTESTED script along the lines of what I'd like to do...
Code:
While (1)
  missedcalls=RegRead("HKCU", "\System\State\Phone\", "Missed Call Count")
  If (missedcalls>0)
     caller=RegRead("HKLM", "\System\State\Phone\", "Last Incoming Caller Name")
     statusline="Missed Call from " & caller
  Else  
    nextappt=regRead ("HKCU","System\State\Appointments\HomeScreen","Subject")
    nextappttime="1:00"  ### there is a subroutine for this
    statusline="Next appt at " & nextappttime &" - " mextappt
  Endif
  RegWriteString("HKCU", "\Software\myscripts\", "status", statusline)

  Sleep (1000)
EndWhile
The widget ini file would identify the registry to read from...
RegEntryToRead=HKCU\Software\myscripts\status

Then the widget would just monitor the registry and show the text string
