    hi all,
    just wondering if it was possible to add an icon for a user-installed widget?

    for example, i have downloaded a uk train timetable widget and it would be nice to have a little pic of a train or something on the dashboard menu rather than just the standard wigdet icon.

    cheers for any help. :)

    Yeah, I believe you just have to replace the icon.png file inside the widget package.

    Edited...Yep, i just tried it myself on one of my widgets with a standard dashboard icon. I resized the image to 80*80 and named it icon.png and placed it inside the widget package. Once I went to dashboard, and clicked on it the icon loaded right up.
