WiQgets are little programs whose job is to stay on the desktop providing different kind of information.
WiQgets are named like this after “Widget” (WINdows gadGET) after which they are modeled.
Every WiQget has a single job: one can have a WiQget which shows a calendar, another one which gives the current time/date and so on.
Many WiQgets might fulfill the same task, simply showing the same results in different ways. It’s up to the user to choose what WiQget to use.
If not explicitly chosen otherwise a WiqGet sits on a specific portion of the screen.
Basically they tend to occupy a single column on the right edge of the screen, regardless of the video resolution, and they pile one on another without overlapping (where possible).
At low resolution this might be impossible.
WiQgets work at any video resolution, but they look best from 1024×768 on.
Of course, the user can put them in any position of the screen.
Every WiQget is simply a colored rectangle 250 pixels wide, showing some kind of data.
Colors used are taken from the loaded system palette, so they depend on the loaded theme.
There are no titlebars or pushbuttons.
By hitting DO on any point of their surface, a tiny menu appears on their surface with six icon, each one of them devoted to a specific function.
