    I updated the dashboard widgets module, both the binary and the source are attached.

    The module now supports activation, so the widget can be displayed in a sheet. It is also possible to set different URLs/widgets for the normal view (within a module slot) and the activated view (sheet, activated view).

    NOTES: you have to remove all existing instances of the module before you replace the old version with the new one. Otherwise there will be problems with setup dictionary.

    Since the module does not use the simplified controls provided by the host application, the sheet will time-out in 30 seconds after activation. (Standard modules postpone this whenever an action is taken and the activated view times out after the module has been left idle for 30 seconds.)

    The activated view/sheet uses standard WebView, so the widgets are displayed starting in the top-left corner. It would of course be nicer to have them centered, but at the moment I do not know how to arrange it and I do not really want to go deeper into the WebKit at the moment.

    BTW: I should have the radioShark sometime next week.

    Fixed Sysmenu.m file is attached.
    I am having troubles with the binary files I downloaded. Can you make some new ones?
    I can start the application, but the software doesn't see the modules. There also happens nothing when I selec a slot and press apple-5, only apple-s seems to work, but I can's select anything, it stays empty

    Many thanks, able to compile, run modules !!

    One thing is: I can compile and load shark widget (get white background etc) but widget does not appear to load..nothing interesting in console.log

    Also noticed the night mode has black background (with the exception of the mp3 status bar, and widget background) and the text remains black so cannot read it .. am I missing something ? prob :-)

    Have a screen dump but dont want to take up bandwidth at this stage as this is a very low priority....

    Some minor progress on the application - only the traditional TatraApp interface for now though..

    Background picture (host application)
    if the application finds an image named "background" in the main application bundle, it uses it as a background for the main window. The image should have a resolution of 800x600 (or the screen resolution) and can be in any of the common formats recognized by NSImage's -imageNamed: method (ie TIFF, JPEG, PNG, GIF..) The image can be inserted into the bundle/package either at build time (background.tiff in the source project) or at any time later (just copy it to ./TatraApp.app/Contents/Resources/). This is the very first step in support for the customization of the application look. Next on the to-do list are customizable frames for module slots and customizable text colours.

    Source support (MP3 player module)
    The module now allows playback of music from an iPod, attached to the computer. "SRC" button of the module's activated view switches between iTunes library and the iPod. Only the playlists of the selected source are displayed when the "playlists" button is used.
    In the future, this will be enhanced by the option to play Audio CDs directly from the TatraApp.
    Current implementation is just a temporary one, there are two known issues: 1. you must choose a source before you start playing a playlist, even if there is only one source available (=no iPod connected) and 2. there are problems with remembering the current position, so after application restart, playback may not continue where it stopped before the application has quit.

    Files (source code) should be shortly available here:

    Wow Jirka, I'm not real good with developing software, but I'm really impressed... This looks so cool.

    I just started looking into building Macs into Cars, but most software you see is pc based. I'm playing with Tatra now and just clicking it is cool

    Let's hope I can learn how to manipulate it or wait till we can order a custom install ...

    Jirka, In regards to WAP and HTML, the purpose of semantic (x)html is for it to gracefully breakdown when you are viewing the page on a mobile phone or other handheld device. I recommend using standard xhtml and css (no tables or sliced up images).

    Jirka-
    When I try to compile the MP3 module, I am getting this error:
    mkdir /Users/avidan/Desktop/Download/MP3Player/build/MP3Player.build/Development/MP3Player.build/Objects-normal/ppc

    I think the file is just missing from the bundle. I will go look for it in a previous release, but i just wanted to let u know....

    thanks.
