check out this xbox live friends widget design! I suck at making widgets but if anyone wants to make it please go ahead. when you click a name that left bar slides out and the arrows scroll your friends in groups of 4.

comments appreciated Very Happy

To be honest I'm not a big fan, but then my opinion is hardly unbiased as I have an Xbox Live widget of my own in development. The design I came up with is a lot more conventional, mimicking the Xbox's own dashboard:

Graphics are near-final with just a few things to tidy up, code however is far from complete. Trying to implement Passport authentication is a pain...

I like everything but the Comic Sans because that font makes my eyes bleed.

Comic Sans is never appropriate.

They both look nice. Just be sure to keep them small or reasonably-sized. Not sure if you've seen this program, but you may be able to get some pointers or help from them. Good luck, I would love a widget like this.

I know you said your widget were far from ready, but I was just wondering how everything was coming on the one that looked like Xbox's dashboard. Keep up the good work!
