Hello!

I wrote a simple gadget for Windows 7 (poss. Vista). Gadget based on MyFxBook widgets, with limited parameters, and without any secure code if You entered wrong data in form fields (in settings) - then do this very carefull. But don't worry its working and looking good! 😄

... I have a problem with attaching a file to 'New Topic', then i try in answer to my post.

A few questions, btw it looks great.

1. Can we change the color if orange isn't easy enough on our eyes?
2. When I extract it, where do I extract it too?
3. If we have multiple reports, can you show the reports in a single file list like the summary page of a search result, only less data wide, then if do a slide out if we mouse it? Like maybe if we mouse over a report, it expands in location to show what you have on the pic, then if we click on it, it slides out to the chart. Final suggestion here is maybe some way to click on it to go directly to the report it is based on at myfxbook.

Ok, I expliored the code, you do handle color change. It looks good, I just need to know where to extract it too. The rest is just a suggestion.

Hi

Answers:
1. Yes - 'Settings' - see images below.
2. Do not extract!. Save the file wherever You want. Double click on file and install gadget (windows do it itself). .gadget file extension is a good extension 😄
3. Only one report in one gadget (same like myfxbook widgets). But You can adds - from gadgets manager in windows - many copies of gadget, and sets differents settings.

...sorry for my English. If you see somewhere in the text of any errors, tell me.

We have 'Main' settings - for gadget, and 'Custom' settings for chart... try it.

Very nice gadget! 😁

There is a problem though, 'SystemID (FTP login)', doesn't seem to support more than 4 numbers. My SystemID consists of 5 numbers.

Furthermore, every time I start the gadget, I get 'Row: 10, Error: 'CheckDockState' is undefined.', should it be like this?

If would be great if these small errors could be corrected! 😉

Hello

You have right <b>@Yonex</b> - there was a bug, and in fact SystemID field was limited to 4 characters. I fixed it both, and SystemID has now restricted to 6 characters.

Corrected version here: <a href='https://www.myfxbook.com/files/Ykee/MyFxGadget_t5.gadget' target='_blank'><b>MyFxGadget_t5.gadget</b></a>

i don't think you should limit the field at all, i don't see the point.

Mey be You right <b>@biz0101</b>. When i created this gadget I did not implement any error handling. So I decided to limit the possibility of erroneous entries. But now, I also do not see the point...

If MyFxBook have implemented some simple services, for example: userExist(string:name; return: true|false),
userSystemNameExist(string:username, string:systemname; return:true|false),
and userFTPloginCorrect(string:username, string:numberFTP; return: true|false)
- return in JSON mey be.... it would be easier...😇

I forgot to tell...
What you suggest were implemented from the start - click on the chart.

Maybe my English isn't good, sorry.

1. Download file (<a href='https://www.myfxbook.com/files/Ykee/MyFxGadget_t5.gadget'><b>MyFxGadget_t5.gadget</b></a>)
2. Save the file somewhere on your hard drive.
3. DO NOT extract (unzip, unrar... whatever) - file have extension <b>.gadget</b> - and its good extension. This is extension for Windows 7 (Vista) gadgets.
4. Simply double-click on the file, or right mousebutton, and 'Open'.

Or (hard path)

1. Open: C:/Program Files/Windows Sidebar/Gadgets/
2. Create new <b>folder</b> 'MyFxGadget.Gadget' - exactly as written!
3. Copy files from archive (open MyFxGadget.gadget in WinRar, WinZip, 7zip... whatever) to the new folder (point 2).
4. Click right mousebutton on pulpit, and select 'Gadgets' option - You should see all installed gadgets, and MyFxGadget too.

Maybe this will help.
