After coming back from my long weekend in Barcelona I finally uploaded the slides and demos of the presentation I held two weeks ago at the XeDotNet user group meeting about Developing Vista Sidebar Gadgets.
The presentation and the demos take you step by step in the creation of a Vista Sidebar Gadget, starting from a basic gadget to a full-blown localized gadget, with settings, flyout and undocked view:
- basic gadget
- adding transparent background
- adding a Settings page
- adding the Undocked view
- adding a Flyout
- getting ready for localization
Since I used a Mac, the main presentation is Keynote format, but I also have the Powerpoint version (even if it doesn't have the spinning cube transition).
