had to....sorry Razz

Seriously though...who knows how to get started on these...especially as i'm lacking the latest builds of Tiger. I have a Widget that I'm eager to get started on but...alas...I think I'm S.O.L. until the Tiger is released from his cage...

Is the only means of acquiring the Dashboard SDK through the Tiger Early Starters Kit?

Ok, to build a Widget, you first need to know HTML, JavaScript, and if you want it to look good, CSS. To get started, make a folder, and call it "[widget name].wdgt." Then, open your favorite text editor and write your Widget's HTML page. When you finish that, use the Xcode tool "Property List Editor" to make a plist with the properties decribed on this page. If you need more help, read the rest of that page. Hope that helps.
