ABOUT
-----

 Desktop widgets are small single-purpose utilities placed on your desktop
 and RNOWidgets is a single application incorporating several of them.

 RNOWidgets contains widgets for calendar (ISO), analog clock, digital clock,
 notes, pictures (local and net), and RSS feeds.


FEATURES
--------

 - Stylish user configurable widgets (graphics, fonts, colors, etc., can be
   freely swapped)
 - Pre-defined themes
 - All widgets are freely re-sizeable
 - Supports alpha channel transparency and has an option to create window drop
   shadows automatically (with or without compositing/accelerated layers)
 - ARexx support


INSTALLATION
------------

 - Copy the whole directory anywhere you want and just launch the program
 - To start the program at boot time, add the following line to the
   SYS:S/user-network-startup file (change the path to your location):
   Run >NIL: SYS:Applications/RNOWidgets/RNOWidgets -delay 2


USAGE
-----

 General:
 - Use the pull-down menu or keyboard shortcuts to select which widgets are
   visible
 - The "Snapshot windows" (command-w) menu item saves widget sizes, positions,
   and its state if a widget is shown or hidden
 - All widgets are freely re-sizeable from the bottom right corner

 Calendar widget:
 - Months can be browsed with the mouse wheel, page up/down & left/right keys
 - "Event strings" can be added by clicking dates or weekdays
 - Clicking the month name, pressing the space bar, or using the up/down keys
   shows a list of forthcoming events for the current month

 Notes widget:
 - Marking text with left button pressed and then releasing it, will copy the
   marked text to the clipboard
 - Underlined URLs can be double-clicked so they are opened in a browser
 - Notes can be added by clicking the "+" sign with the mouse or by pressing
   the "insert" key
 - Notes can be deleted by clicking the "x" sign or by pressing the Ctrl+Del
   combination
 - Notes can be browsed with the mouse wheel or with the page up/down keys
 - The "pause" key will pause the automatic cycling if it's enabled

 Pictures widget:
 - Pictures can be browsed with the mouse wheel, page up/down keys, and
   left/right keys
 - Double-click or the "f" key opens pictures to a fullscreen display
 - The space bar or the "pause" key pauses the automatic cycling
 - HTTP and FTP protocols are supported for images from the Internet
 - "r" and "enter" keys do a forced refresh for the current picture

 RSS feeds widget:
 - Clicking a feed item will open the full story on a browser
 - Different feeds can be browsed with the mouse-wheel, or by the page up/down
   or left/right keys
 - Up/down keys show previous or next pages of the current feed
 - The space bar or the "pause" key pauses the automatic cycling
 - "r" and "enter" keys do a forced refresh for the feed
 - Only HTTP protocol is supported


SETTINGS
--------

 The settings application can be opened from the pull-down menu or with the
 command-s keyboard shortcut. See the MUI quick help popups for information
 about different settings.

 Settings are saved to ENV:RNOWidgets/ and they can be altered without the
 settings GUI too. For example, to disable the RSS widget type in the Shell:
 SetEnv SAVE RNOWidgets/rss 0

 The separate "Compositing" setting in the pull-down menu is used to define if
 windows are drawn with hardware accelerated layers. Window shadows and alpha
 transparent graphics are updated in real-time by the hardware then. This only
 works if the program is running on a 32bit "enhanced mode" screen on MorphOS
 (System settings -> Screens -> Enhanced Display).

 Compositing mode can also be forced on or off by typing the following line
 into a Shell window before launching the program (0=off, 1=on, 2=default):
 SetEnv SAVE RNOWidgets/compositing 0
 *Note* that forcing the compositing mode on can crash the system if you don't
 have a compatible screen!

 If you have difficulties to move or re-size windows with irregular shaped
 transparent backgrounds, enable this setting from the Shell:
 SetEnv SAVE RNOWidgets/safecompositing 1


COMMAND LINE OPTIONS AND ICON TOOLTYPES
---------------------------------------

 RNOWidgets uses non-standard command line arguments. Arguments must be given
 in the form of (note the "-" prefix): -argument parameter

 Allowed arguments:
 -delay <n> . - Delays the startup for <n> seconds
 -args  . . . - Shows the allowed arguments

 The same arguments can be used as icon tooltypes, but by omitting the
 "-" prefix.
