Vista Gadget API: Documentation

I know what you are thinking why the hell do i need to know this but here is my idea

Normal users loves small utilities for their programs so why not make a vista gadget for user clients so they can see simple functions in a gadget

that would go well with the users i do believe. Or for hubsoft makers stats time from the hub to a gadget also a nice feature.

It's a cool idea. One could have a gadget that connects to the hub and shows the stats. This could work with any hub. Though I have no idea how this gadgets are done, perhaps someone tried them over ?

i think this could be done for dshub one could make a plugin that exports stats to XML at intervals and then make a gadget that reads the xml, simple enough :)

I was thinking of an actual bot that connects to the hub and gets some information from it . This would be hubsoft independent...

Well the gadget api has it's limitations, after all the gadgets are mainly composed of xml like files... and the syntax doesn't let you do a whole lot.
