My first attempt at making widgets for LCDStudio (second attempt at plugin). This time using C#.

Includes 3 highly customizable Widgets.

Line Bar

Round Graph

Logarithmic Bar Graph

Get it here. Readme in zip.

Looking good! I believe you're the first one to create a custom widget for studio, great job. Everyone go test it out.

Good work and nicely done.
I liked the Line Bar most.
The Logarithmic Bar Graph's blocks needs some visual optimizing in my opinion, it doesn't look perfect to my eyes, i think every block needs to be minimum one pixel taller/shorter than the other at least...

Keep up the good work...

First of all, I will extend my congratulations and kudos and all. Quite impressive!
Just one question, though: is there any significant gain from making a widget to using an animated GIF?
Cheers!
Live long and prosper...

Less painful to configure maybe??? (I don't know I never used animated gif with LcdDataItems)
And no need for custom variables too...

Animated GIFs don't scale very well, plus they can not be altered easily. I wrote these because I couldn't find the animated version of what I wanted.

If each bar was one pixel taller than previous, it would be a linear bar graph and not a logarithmic graph. In either case. The bar graph has an option to apply the logarithm calculation to the value itself.

I just meant the same height blocks could be a pixel taller/shorter one another as in more smoother logarithmic scale...

I'll see if I can tweak it a bit.

Well, given another thought in the process it won't be noticeable if the widget's height is too short (but not every one uses a G15 right?) ;)
