Ok I have created my main html file, my Info.plist and defualt.png....But it's not launching. If i open someone elses widget up and delete all of thier html code and copy mine in there, my widget works. Is there something I need to do. Here is what I did:
1. Created a folder name.html
2.placed my main.html, Info.plist and default image in there.
3. Changed the extension from name.html to name.wdgt. The Folder then changed to a wdgt icon.
4. When i double click on it to launch it nothing happens. Also if I drop it into the widgets folder it will not allow me to drop it onto my screen.

any help will be much appreciated.

Sounds like your info.plist isn't set up right.

Make sure the string for the MainHTML key is main.html.

Yeah, my Info.plist had an error. My DefualtImage was spelt incorrectly. Once I fixed the error everything worked great.

Thanks Again.
