Thread: [Tweak] iWidgets

This widget CAN indeed be made into GPS - but to make the project even bearable to undertake - you'd have to convert the whole iWidget to cleaner code and I just didn't want to take the time. I rarely travel from my main city - so sticking in my zip code was the easiest. And because Yahoo Weather is SO poor - that you'll only really see 'changing' accurate weather for MAJOR cities. If you put in a 'suburb' of a major city - you'll only see Partly Cloudy and Fair for 99% of every day of the year. Yahoo is just SO poor. But it is the 'free-est' and easiest to code for - hence it being ubiquitous in the modding world.

New question, is there anyway to get the Glass Cazoobi iWidget on a lockscreen. If so, can someone please advise how it can be accomplished.

You start by getting rid of the file "widget.plist" and then changing the name of the html file from widget.html to Lockbackground.html. Study other Lockscreen theme folders to start learning how a Lockscreen widget differs in layout from a SpringBoard widget or iWidget. It won't be that hard. I learned and experimented for about 1 day and could convert a Springboard widget to Lockscreen and vice versa. iWidgets add the step of having to move the widget display elements all, in proportion to each other, to the uppermost, leftmost corner of a page so they can be placed into a movable element around the screen. The widget.plist file of an iWidget determines the total size of an iWidget. This isn't needed in a Lockscreen them.
So in converting it to a Lockscreen theme you'll have to choose a wall background, add it to the code and THEN - you'll need to modify the "top" and "left" pixel number positions to eventually move every aspect (overlay, time, date, weather description, temperature, etc) to where you want it on the Lockscreen. iWidgets, themselves, can NOT be placed on Lockscreens by pressing and holding them to appear. That's impossible. But with some modding work, any particular iWidget's DESIGN CAN be placed into a Lockscreen theme.
The problem with Glass Cazoobi is the old code being all bunched together into the HTML document rather than being split out into .js, .css and .html files as it should be. This conversion you'd like would be SO easy - if you had a .css file all by itself. Good luck. Sounds like you're a modder in the making if you've already messed with the time display. If memory serves me, Durben could verify, I believe Glass Cazoobi STARTED as a Lockscreen theme. You could probably just search the forum for it. I converted it to iWidget from a Springboard Widget.

@The_Durben. I just wanted to say thanks for the widgets man. Finally found a theme that I think goes perfectly with this widget. Appreciate the time u give all of us.

A lot of people recommend that all code is in the HTML as it reduces load times due to it not having to be searched for. The reason people have them separate is to make their code appear clean and organised. There is no benefit other than those for having stuff outside of the HTML file.

The Internet is your friend. I have as much of my code separate as it makes for easier customisation for the end user who doesn't know a lot.
If you look back at Max Pa1ns most recent widgets he had all his CSS in the HTML file. Scripts nearly everyone I've come across keeps separate because they tend not to be a place an end user would need to go to customise so they are put out of the way.
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7...s-or-main-html each to their own I guess I was just pointing out the fact that there isn't a problem with the way the code you were talking about had been assembled

I am looking to have more than 10 pictures in the DB Dropscreen slideshow widget. Would this be easily possible and where/what code would I change?
