    I was wondering if there was any way to have the widget bar change to what it was like when Steve Jobs first previewed Tiger. I really liked having that a lot more than the huge widget bar.

    Nope

    Nope. Sorry! I think it's because:

    a) you can't see the icon
    b) it is akward to have two tiers (favorites and all widgets)
    c) it didn't look cool

    WHAT!?!? ;) Naw, I thought it looked cool, and I'm sure that there's someway to restore some of the functionality from the current widget bar back into the old one. One day I'll work on it and see if I can't make something. If I ever succeed I'll post back here.

    You could probably just make a widget that looks like it, couldn't you, and have the same functionality?

    was thinking the same thing since the widget application is probably imbedded in the dock application like expose i believe is.

    Precisely. I have the original code for the original widget bar, and all it was was a widget itself. I'm sure that I can make a widget out of what I have, it's just a matter of time.

    How about this?

    Not exactly identical in appearance, but it looks like the same basic idea (if I remember the original dashboard demo correctly).

    Yeah I saw that too, looks ugly as you know what. :mad:
    To all those who are interested in making one of these widgets, I appreciate it, because me and code don't really get along too well. Oh well, guess that's what college is for!
