Google Gadget Widget

This topic describes how to configure the Google Gadget widget.

General Tab

The following table describes the fields on the General tab of the Property Editor for this widget.
Field Description
Control name Type the name by which the widget is uniquely identified. No other widget or control on this form can have the same name.
Caption Type the text to appear in the title bar above the widget.

If you leave this field blank, the widget will not have a title bar.


Do the following:

  1. Click Search for Google Gadget.
  2. Find the gadget you want to use, and click the button that adds it to your Web site.
  3. Experiment with the gadget settings until you are satisfied, and then click the button that gets the code.
  4. Select all of the code, and copy it to the Windows clipboard.
  5. Paste the copied code into the Content box in SBM Composer.

Alternately, you can use the string builder tool to insert references to table fields and form controls.

Important: If the code you type in this field includes any opening or closing braces ("{" or "}"), precede each of them with a backslash ("\"). Otherwise, SBM Composer tries to interpret the text inside of the braces as the name of a field or control on the form. (If you paste code with braces, you are prompted whether you want a backslash to be added. If you use the Treat '{' as a literal option in the string builder tool, a backslash is automatically added.)
Note: This widget is sized automatically. You cannot change the size of the widget by adding {_width} or {_height} elements into the Content field.
Options Border: Select this check box to draw a thin line around the widget.

Scroll bars: Select this check box to include scroll bars in the widget. This provides more content than the allotted space.

Description Type an optional description of the widget.
