ABOUT
-----

Desktop widgets are small individual utilities placed on your desktop
and RNOWidgets is a single application incorporating several of them.

RNOWidgets contains widgets for calendar (ISO), analog clock, digital clock,
notes, pictures (local and net), RSS feeds, sticker, and weather.


FEATURES
--------

- Stylish user configurable widgets (graphics, fonts, colors, etc., can be
freely swapped)
- Pre-defined themes
- All widgets are freely re-sizeable and moveable
- Supports alpha channel transparency and has an option to create window drop
shadows automatically (with or without compositing/accelerated layers)
- Versatile alarm system
- ARexx support


INSTALLATION
------------

- Copy the whole directory anywhere you want and just launch the program
- To start the program at boot time, add the following line to the
SYS:S/user-network-startup file (and change the path to your location):
Run >NIL: SYS:Applications/RNOWidgets/RNOWidgets -skipplugins=* -delay 2
(the -skipplugins argument saves some memory if you have other Hollywood
plugins installed on your system)


USAGE
-----

General:
- Use the pull-down menu or keyboard shortcuts to select which widgets are
visible
- The "Snapshot windows" (command-.) menu item saves widget sizes, positions,
and its state if a widget is shown or hidden
- All widgets are freely re-sizeable from the bottom right corner
- All widgets are freely moveable from top of the widget
- The "Edit alarms" (command-e) menu item opens the alarm editor window
- Alarms work globally, so they aren't tied to a specific widget

Calendar widget:
- Months can be browsed using the mouse wheel, page up/down & left/right keys
- The middle mouse button or the Enter key switches back to the current month
- "Event strings" can be added by clicking dates or weekdays
- Clicking the month name, pressing the space bar, or using the up/down keys
shows a list of forthcoming events for the current month

Notes widget:
- Marking text with the left button pressed and then releasing it, will copy
the marked text to the clipboard
- Underlined URLs can be double-clicked so they open in your browser
- Notes can be added by clicking the "+" sign with the mouse or by pressing
the "insert" key
- Notes can be deleted by clicking the "x" sign or by pressing the Ctrl+Del
combination
- Notes can be browsed with the mouse wheel or with the page up/down keys
- The "pause" key will pause the automatic cycling if it's enabled

Pictures widget:
- Pictures can be browsed using the mouse wheel, page up/down keys, and
left/right keys
- Double-clicking or pressing the "f" key opens pictures on a fullscreen
- The spacebar or the "pause" key pauses automatic cycling
- HTTP and FTP protocols are supported for images from the Internet
- "r" and "enter" keys do a forced refresh of the current picture

RSS feeds widget:
- Clicking a feed item will open the full story on a browser
- Different feeds can be browsed with the mouse-wheel, or by the page up/down
or left/right keys
- Up/down keys show previous or next pages of the current feed
- The spacebar or the "pause" key pauses automatic cycling
- "r" and "enter" keys do a forced refresh for the feed
- Only the HTTP protocol is supported

Weather widget:
- Widget's layout is dynamic so any resizing it wider alters its arrangement
- Locations can be browsed with the mouse wheel, page up/down keys, and
left/right keys
- The space bar or the "pause" key pauses the automatic cycling


SETTINGS
--------

The settings application can be opened from the pull-down menu. See the MUI
quick help pop-ups for information about the various settings.

Settings are saved to ENV:RNOWidgets/ and they can also be altered without
the settings GUI. For example, to disable the RSS widget type in the Shell:
SetEnv SAVE RNOWidgets/rss 0

The separate "Compositing" setting in the pull-down menu is used to define if
windows are drawn with hardware accelerated layers. Window shadows and alpha
transparent graphics are then updated in real-time by the hardware. This only
works if the program is running on a 32bit "enhanced mode" screen on MorphOS
(System settings -> Screens -> Enhanced Display).

Compositing mode can also be forced on or off by typing the following line
into a Shell window before launching the program (0=off, 1=on, 2=default):
SetEnv SAVE RNOWidgets/compositing 0

If you have difficulties moving or re-sizing windows with irregular shaped
transparent backgrounds, enable this setting from the Shell:
SetEnv SAVE RNOWidgets/safecompositing 1


COMMAND LINE OPTIONS AND ICON TOOLTYPES
