UPDATE: the latest version of that gadget is now 0.9.5. Read more on the 0.9.5 release notes.

I just released the new version of my CC.NET Monitor for Vista Sidebar (why is everybody giving such long names to software?): version number 0.7

This version adds the most requested feature: the ability to specify which project to display.

Now in the settings page you can specify the "Display Mode":

  • All projects
  • Only failing projects
  • Only specified projects
  • All but the specified projects

and then there is a text field where the user can specify the projects he wants (or doesn't want) to display (must be a comma separated list of project names).

I also fixed a few other problems:

  • long project names hides the scroll buttons
  • the status of projects sometimes is not updated (due to a problem with IE cache)
  • the settings page always displays the hint value instead of the real value of the dashboard url
  • scroll buttons are "ugly" (ok, not a bug, but now it's looking nicer)

Here are the screenshots of the new version (look at the new scroll buttons):


Of course, here is the link for the new version: CC.NET Monitor for Vista Sidebar 0.7

Thank you to all the users that tried the gadget, tested it and reported bugs and feature requests. If you want some feature or want to report a bug, just write inside the comments.

Awesome. I'm almost ready to dump CCTray.

I also have a couple more feature ideas:

1. It would be cool if there was some way of telling at a glance if any projects are failing without having to scroll through the entire list. Whether you would indicate this with some sort of header or with something like a background color change, I don't know, but it would be cool.

2. Some sort of automatic scrolling feature like the RSS widget has. However, I recognize that it's entirely possible that I'm the only developer on the planet who would like this, so it would probably need to be configurable, to some extent.

Dave: What do u mean with "automatic" scrolling?

If you turn on the "Feed Headlines" gadget that comes with Vista and point it at a set of feeds that has more than four items, you'll notice that it only shows four items at a time, but it periodically changes which four items it is showing--initially, it shows the most recent four items, but after a few seconds, it shifts to items 5-8, then 9-12, and so on.

The "Feed Headlines" gadget also allows you to manually change which "page" you're looking at, but if you leave it alone, it will eventually loop through all content.

That's what I mean by automatic scrolling.

That is really cool...
I never used the Feed Headlines gadget because I don't store RSS feeds in the common RSS storage of Vista.
Seems to be a nice feature, and, of course, configurable :)
