I wanted a quick way to check up on my F@H stats so I made a widget called "UnitInfo". It displays your rank in the team, total WU count and status of current WU.

Please keep in mind that this is meant solely for F@H users, it hasn't been tested on machines without F@H installed.

You can download UnitInfo from here:

All feedback, as usual, would be very much appreciated.

looks good!! there is overflow, though, in the rank part (my rank is 4 digits) and the team name part. I'm looking forward to the release of this widget.

andrethegiant, excellent point. Will make the layout dynamic (hopefully with some cool animation...). Many thanks for the feedback!

caching makes it much faster! however, when i flip from back to front, my rank turns into a ?, and my team name is n/a, with n/a units folded. then if i flip to the back, i'm in the front (the flip animation happens, but i'm still in the front div. it flips from front to front). but after that if i flip to the back, there are 4 done buttons stacked on top of each other.

also, i would like to see a feature that updates the current percentage every time dashboard is activated.

0.97 beta now
- fixed a bunch of bugs
- no overflow and new graphics. A big hand for Martin for this! Wink
- no more multiplying OK buttons
- Loading dashboard refreshes current WU status

Known issues:
- Can't really monitor many different users. This is because Dahsboard shares the same set of prefs for all copies of a widget. Will see what I can do.
- When changing teams, takes a few refreshes to update the info. Will fix in next (hopefully final) release.

Yes, ofcourse.

It's just much easier to keep the latest version on my homepage and put a link up someplace where anyone can find it.

my pleasure! I'm lovin the new version! 1.0 is still a little cut off for me. The rounded corners on the right side don't show up, and my team name is cut off.

Yeah, we had a really hard time with the CSS. The layout still has a max width and so it breaks sooner or later. I'll definitely look into it.
