$D Days - $H:$M:$S until Summer

I don't think so... I've pretty much finished with this project now (unless anyone else has anything to add) so there wouldnt be much updates. plus its got its own thread on Neowin, which would probably get more hits anyway.

Thanks for the offer though.

Doesn't appear to support dual monitor. Want to put it on my second monitor.. with my calendar.. contacts.. widgets etc... but it wont move onto it.

Any chance for a fix for this?

OK; I've added an option to the Misc tab to stop it from preventing you moving it off-screen. I don't have multi-monitors etc to test this so if it doesn't work, or only partly works, give me a yell and I'll have another look.

Yep, it lets me move it onto my second monitor :) Although having "Enable Automatic Size/Positioning" ticked by default had me a little puzzeled as it kept jumping back onto my main monitor :p

On a side note, what did you use to develop this app and how did u get it to be transparent. I'm trying to make a form transparent using AlphaBlend and it just doesn't want to work :(

I used Delphi 6. To make it transparent, set AlphaBlend to True, then set AlphaBlendValue to 0-255 depending on how transparent you want it.

XgD - can you package it in an installer?

Yes... but as it is only one file, I don't see much need. Whats the reasoning?

The reason being to create short cuts easily as well as add an uninstall option. Just makes it easy to deploy.

Well, it's been a while since I updated this app, so I've fixed a few more bug thingies, added thingies, and its all packaged in a nice installer for velkymx.
