Hi, I have designed a vista gadget for my site which I require the xml coding to bring it alive. It consists of 6 variables which require MySql communication with the database for displaying the 'count' values in their respective positions on the widget. If the widget is offline I am needing the widget output for these 6 variables to display 'offline' text. I need the widget to be made available in a downloadable file which will auto install on execute. The widget needs to have the capability to hold the userID of the downloader so it has the ability to gather the users specific information from the database. I can send the widget file in it's current state to anyone that is interested in this project. Thanks.
