NOTE: This forum is moderated.
That means that your post will not be visible to others until it has been approved. If there is any reason for rejecting your post/widget, we will contact you. We prefer that posts be for uploaded Widgets only, but we may, on occasion, allow important or informative posts through as well.
We have created this section as a repository for useful Widgets.
Widgets are simply MMF2 Extensions that have pre-programmed behaviors. Those behaviors are used to create drag-and-drop functionality and to perform automated tasks.
We suggest that users who want to keep their Widgets in an easy-to-access location create a folder called Widgets in the MMF2 folder named "lib". When you run MMF2, that folder will appear in your Library Toolbar.
We encourage users to submit their own Widgets here. You can use the object's Alterable Values and Strings as switches and controls for what you have programmed into it. It's that simple.
Please post a brief description of your Widget along with your file. The file can be either a .mfa, or a zip file.
Be sure to name your file, the application, the frame, and the object you have modified in a way that makes it clear to the user what it is and does. That way, they can refer to it easily in their Widgets folder.
Consider recoloring, or slightly modifying the object's icon to make it stand out and differentiate from its original version.
Be sure to document your Widget so that users are aware of how it works and how to control it. We suggest doing so using comments in the Behavior itself.
All Widgets posted here are considered "open source", so keep that in mind when you post one. Anyone is free to add to or modify an existing widget provided they add a number to it to indicate that it is a new version.
Addendum: If your submission uses more than one object, please refer to it as a multi-widget to distinguish it from an all-in one behavior Widget. Users need to know what to drag into their application.
