IMPORTANT: This Widgets are not compatible with FEWidgets Lite and Ultimate version.

As I've been seeing more activity on "user made widgets" for FEWidgets on the app thread, I thought I would create this thread on which we could manage all new widgets created by other developers/users.

I'll keep a list here and update it as often as I can , if you made a widget please create a post on this thread with the following:

- Zip file containing the new widget (if it's an Auto Installable Package please say so)
- Screenshot of the new widget.
- Explain what it does briefly.
- If it's not an AIP widget zip file, please include deplyment instructions.

I'll check this thread often, but if you see I missed your widget please PM me and I'll update it.

All Ideas or questions regarding widget creation should be posted on this thread, and bugs or questions regarding the app itself on the other one.

Documentation for creating an Auto Installable Package zip file can be found on the widget Creation Manual Here.

On this post you have an example of an AIP package and a small guide to create your own on 5 steps. Thanks nir36!

INSTALLATION:

Widgets marked with AIP are Auto Installable Packages.

- Place them on FEWidgets\install
- Go to Configuration -> Install New Widgets
- Restart the Application (or the today plugin)

Widget zip files not marked with AIP, must be installed manually and it will be explained on the creators Post.

flash lite actionscript is supported, becuase flash 7 for Pocket PC supports AS 2.0.

FEWidgets won't work with Flash Lite, it needs flash Player 7 because flash lite does not provide an ActiveX control. (I believe there is a way to create a player on a specific window invoking FL_CreatePlayer from flashlite.dll, but it's not documented.. at least not for free)

Widget AIP (Auto Install Package) Manual
The following zip contains 4 flash files and 1 XML file which are the example of how to make an installation package for FEWidgets.

The code in the XML was written by nicolas in the Widget Creation document.
all you have to do is download the example, replace the files in the zip with your files and change the zip file's name to have an installation package.

changes required are as follows:

1. change zip name to whatever you want..
2. switch both NAMEico files with your files while NAME is the widget's name
3. switch both NAME files with your files while NAME is the widget's name
4. edit the xml file and change the values inside according to what is written in the right fields.
5. copy the zip file to /program files/FEWidgets/install and in the config app choose to install new widgets.


PLEASE! if you post a reply with a widget and want to add more widgets DO edit your post and add them there. this way we can keep 1 post per user with all his widgets and keep this thread as clean and organized as possible for nicolas to read.

Updated first post with all 3 widgets =D (when you have some time could you place a screenshot on the post with the three widgets? I believe I've seen one already )

Thanks! (I've also added a link to the AIP template you made )

Here is my post for widgets.


1) Battery Meter ver1.4 AIP package; its a 5 stage animated meter; screenshots: onsidebar.jpg onscreen.jpg
2) LGMenu widget ver1.0 AIP package; ported version of LG Today Plugin and LGMenu for FEWidgets, fits best on 240x screen with no bottom bar and Opera browser installed; screenshots: LGM_sidebar.jpg LGM_onscreen.jpg
3) Tiny Browser ver1.0 AIP package; this widget is based on Touchwiz's browser shortcut gadget however this one is configurable - you can actually make it run just any .exe from \Windows\ directory; you can change launched application/browser at FEWidgets\custom\Tiny Browser\config.xml; by default its set to launch Opera; screenshots: Tiny_Browser_onscreen.jpg


All packages install sources aswell (custom\).

There is an option... on the configuration section when you select a custom widget the uninstall option on the menu should be enabled.

There is also an installer section for uninstall special commands I think (dont remember right now).

You should restart the application when the widget is uninstalled.
