Your wait is over. New version with the corrected validation and the cropping is posted. I have also included the option to choose a different background color and image. Enjoy.
+1 karma for the new version!

This is the current status:



3 queries:

I'm not able to get the background color working..

How do I put a custom background/wallpaper?

Can we also have a 'fill' option so that the image fills the gadget?

============================================================

Edit: I got the background working with these settings.. It is looking much better now!

Error alert!

Found an issue with saving the background color to XML. So it loses that setting everytime. Corrected in the latest version 1.0.5.:whistle:

I was wondering.. do we have to uninstall the previous version and then install the new updates (as I am doing till now), or do we simply install one over the other? :unsure:

Install over top. It "should" uninstall the previous version for you.

No luck..see:



==============================================================

Edit:

Ok, I would like you to take a look at this:

I have another slideshow gadget, that provides for one size larger than our 'regular' slideshow gadget..
http://www.mediafire.com/file/wluexie6jvy83w7/SlideShowLarge.zip

The 'large' one always displays the pictures filling up the entire window, but the 'regular' one shows some and misses some..



Weird?

:cheer: Well, I restarted my computer this evening and surprisingly now everything is fine.. both the gadgets are now displaying full pictures! Must have been some local issue..



Infact, I am looking out for a 3rd 'little' version that would look nice when combined with these two!

:laugh: Ha Ha.. what fun!
