Monthly/5-Week Display

Dec 17, 2011 at 11:17 PM

Hi, I just started using this app today.

There's some screenshots you have showing the app in a monthly/5-week display, how do I change my display setting to that? I've tried looking around for a way and I'm not sure if it's an option but it must be if it's in the screenshots?

Hi, you can change the appearance just by clicking on the maximization button on the right side of the gadget (the one bellow the close button).

When I click on the maximize button, the full-month display comes up, but the event list disappears. Is there a way to have both?

Hi, I'm not sure what you mean. If you maximize tha gadget, it shows the particullar events for the selected date except the case when you have selected the current date (in this case it shows the full event list the same why as with the smaller version). If you think that you've discovered some unexpected behaviour please try to provide me with more details - screenshots or sample ics calendar would be very helpful. Thanks for the comment!

Ah yes, selecting the current date was what I didn't do. Cool, thanks!

Hi, I just downloaded this gadget and I'm having the same issues.  I am simply unable to find a way to display the monthly/5 week display.  However, my gadget does not have a maximize button under the close button.  I only have a close button and an options button.  Underneath that, there is a tab that looks like 8 little squares, that seems to serve no function other than to allow me to drag the calendar to different parts of my screen.  How do I address this?  Could this be because I'm running Vista?

I sort of forgot about this. But yes I have the same issue as phorty. I simply have no maximize button either and I do have Windows Vista as well

It is quite a time I have been using Vista for the last time, but I believe that you can display the maximized state of the gadget by simply draging it out of the sidepanel.

I am trying to get the windows live sidebar gadget to display a full month calendar while at the same time showing the list of events directly below it. I know I have seen it before, but now it will only show 1 week of the month, then the events below that. Also, the one week begins on whatever the current day it is...not like a normal calendar with Sunday. I have a screenshot of it, but cant see where to post the pic??

I have spent a LONG time trying to figure this out, so ANY help would be greatly appreciated!!
