Hmmm... Presumably the javascript engine isn't properly localised but the API is... Maybe if I replace the / with - first it might cope...

New version if you fancy having a look. I'm assuming the date parser was failing...

I definitely fancy!!! I really appreciate your effort and when it works, I will definitely use it, as I really miss something that shows my next appointments on the home screen! So keep up the good work!

However, I downloaded again, reinstalled, but unfortunately the result is still the same. It works fine when the phone is switched to English, but shows very old items with the NaN indications when switched to Dutch...

Reinstalled - still a blank screen on main screen, and the widget is no longer in the 'add content' menu on my homescreen!

This is crazy... The least reliable api ever! *sigh*

Well, I'm stumped. Sometimes I get a black widget for about 30 seconds, but it eventually loads.

Sometimes it loads instantly. And it doesn't load at all for you!

How long are you waiting for it? What happens if you load the main app?

Hi Dave,

First of all great concept for a widget! It Does help me!

Not to add to your problems but.....i've got a small one.

Within my calendar i have a Memo on 01/08/09 and meeting on 15/08/09 and 20/08/2009 however the widget is picking them up as 01/07/09, 15/07/09 and 20/07/09 - Note the 07.

But it does pick up the next meeting on 15/08/2009. So its as if the Widget has gone 1 month behind?

Not sure. Just thought i'd feedback.

Thanks for it though! Makes life easier!

Delveh

There's Nokias intro page http://www.forum.nokia.com/Technolog...s/Web_Runtime/

The WRT wiki http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...time_%28WRT%29

And the full documentation is here http://library.forum.nokia.com/topic...4B2CFF109.html

A good working knowledge of javascript will help too... Good luck!

Trying to uninstall the widget, but I get 'file corrupted'. The widget is not present in the 'installed applications' list in the application manager. Hmm?

Edit: fixed after a restart. Will try and reinstall.

Uninstalled the widget.
Restarted phone.
Installed the widget.
Restarted phone.
Loaded the main program - white screen as before, with "open calendar" in the corner.
Added the widget to homescreen - showed "loading content" for a few seconds, now just a completely white box.

Is it possible the previous installations left behind some files or settings that are corrupting the current installation, or is it just buggy for some reason on my phone?

After the wild compatability differences from different instances of the same handset I can only come to the conclusion the the widget API is flaky at best.

I'm having trouble with contacts on another widget I'm working on. Apparently some contacts will cause the whole widget to crash. No way of knowing which they are though. Nightmare.

I may very well give up altogether!
