thanks for your afford, but i can't even add an item to the desklet, wether trying to add the item # or the complete url.

There's also an error coming up when starting the app: Quote:
.gdesklets/Displays/eBayWatcher/ebay.display
> 1 ctrl = get_control('IeBayScrap:3rvo76u5xtq96pizbtiz3votr-2')
item_list path is set up correctly.

It looks like gDeskelts may not have recognised the control. It seems really temperamental when installing new controls. Check in the gDesklets shell whether the control is there - you need both IFileToList and IeBayScrap. You'll (almost) certainly need to restart gDesklets for it to recognise a new control, and I have needed to reboot sometimes. And sometimes it just fails, despite the control being good.

You could try using the File > Install Package function in the shell. I don't know what structure the tarball has to have, but it's worth a go.

I hope you get it to work.

As an example of the trouble I've had with installing controls: I initially wrote the control, named it IeBayScraper, and tried to install it but it was not recognised. I then copied a working control, renamed it IeBayScrap, installed it successfully, then edited it successfully. Then, when I tried to rename this gDesklets refused to recognise it. It's a working control, but apparently only works under one name. It's pretty frustrating. I hope that the new version 0.40 is a little more reliable.

It's pretty frustrating that people feel the need to rate this (and other items) as 'bad' without leaving any explanation why. Please, if you think it is bad, leave a comment.

What makes it expecially frustrating is that it's getting negative ratings when there isn't even an alternative. It's the only gdesklet I'm aware of to do what it does, and it's functional. Fair enough to rate it bad if there were another 5 that had the same functionality but were prettier or more customizable, but there really aren't.

Perhaps that's why it keeps getting rated down. If no one can get it to work why should it ever get rated up? I'm having the same problem someone else mentioned. Yeah I'd love it to work, but it doesn't. The fact is right now there's all kinds of programs that does exactly what this does for me: nothing. Fix the problem and I'll definitely mod you up.
