Dashboard widget: Where to Focus Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I've just posted my first Dashboard widget for OmniFocus. It's free from my software downloads page. Here's the promo. blurb from the page:

You use OmniFocus to pick your next action in your current context. But how do you decide what context to put yourself in? Introducing a new Dashboard widget that displays a bar chart of the number of available actions in each of your OmniFocus contexts. Click a bar to display the available actions in OmniFocus.

Fixed. Thanks!


Is this a Leopard-only widget? Doesn't seem to work for me on Tiger.
I've only tested on Leopard.

I'm guessing that the widget will have trouble on Tiger. I'm using Unicode in the communication between the widget and the scripts that interact with OmniFocus. Unicode support in AppleScript was a bit dodgey in Tiger. Sorry about that.

Not a problem, I just didn't want to waste any time trying to figure out why it didn't work if it was functioning as designed :-)
Cool widget Curt. I love the visual display. very smooth animation.
Thank you.
That is a nice widget, Curt. My only issue is that I have a lot of contexts (probably too many, but that's a problem I'm still working on).

It'd be nice if the widget would allow me to resize its window and scroll the overflow contents with a scroll bar. What do you think?
