Gadget Designer 1.1 has been released

Friday, October 19, 2007 at 9:52 AM



We just released Gadget Designer 1.1, so be sure to grab the latest SDK and try it out. This version of the Gadget Designer brings new features, stability improvements, and support for the new 5.5 API. It's all documented in the release notes.

As you might have noticed already, the old Gadget Designer is incompatible with Google Desktop 5.5, so you will need the new Designer if you're running the latest version of Google Desktop. If you're still running an older version of Google Desktop, you'll need to use the old Designer. The October 16 version of the SDK includes both the new and the old versions of the Designer.


If you have bug reports or feedback, drop us a note at the Google Desktop Developer group.

The screenshot below shows my favorite new feature: You can now edit XML source files directly, which means you should be able to work exclusively in the Gadget Designer from now on.

I've made my own website(I'm not a beginer), but I don't understand your software. Isn't it possible do make one in wysiwyg? Or a little more clear for non-programmers?
By the way, I'm French..

Sebrieu,

The designer is a WYSIWYG tool for developing desktop gadgets. Try it out, drag elements onto the Design pane, and edit some properties. You also need to know some JavaScript to add dynamic behavior to the gadget. If you need help, come visit us on the developer group:

Thanks. My gadget is in progress. But it's hard to understand when you're not english, and not programmer.. I just want to make apear in the gadget the content of a folder online(all files are *.jpg)where I put a new one everyday, like "a picture of the day"...
