Hello,
I am new here but I've been a good boy and before asking I searched the forums and found two posts that were asking my same question but without really offering a definitive answer:

http://www.dashboardwidgets.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2261&highlight=applet
http://www.dashboardwidgets.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=28&highlight=applet


I am trying to program my first widget. It is a widget that shows a webpage. The webpage basically only has a Java applet.

In Safari or FireFox I do see what I expect to see, but when I load the widget in the dashboard I don't see anything past the Default.png background image.

I tried adding a text line to make sure the widget's html part was actually being loaded and it is being loaded (I do see the text line) so my question now is:

can Widgets show Java Applets? or is that a limitation of the widgets?

Thanks
