The Lottery Results Gadget for Windows Vista Sidebar delivers the lastest winning numbers directly to your desktop within minutes of the drawing. Every lottery game in the USA, Canada, and UK is available. Jackpots are displayed right after they are announced by the lottery.
The gadget is among the most comprehensive available, and is highly customizable. Adjustments include the size of the gadget while docked and choice of sound to announce the arrival of new results. People who have a hard time seeing small text will appreciate the ability to adjust the text size. High-contrast colors are used for easy readability.
When undocked from the Sidebar, the Lottery Results Gadget changes to an expanded view and includes even more information at a glance.
All games are hot-linked directly to the online resources, providing instant access to past results, jackpot history, statistics, details about the games, and more.
An online Guide, accessible from the gadget, covers in-depth help topics including requirements, setup and installation, FAQs, troubleshooting, and general Vista Sidebar assistance. An RSS 2.0 feed and e-mail registration are available for notification of new releases.
Multiple languages are supported, including English, Spanish, and French. (Contact us if you wish to help translate to other languages.)
Every time zone worldwide is supported, and all update dates/times are automatically shown relative to your own timezone. (This happens seamlessly and without user intervention.)
Windows SideShow is fully supported, even providing views not available in the Sidebar gadget. Users can selectively enable SideShow support per gadget instance, to improve performance and usability.
Users have the ability to save default settings shared by all instances of the Lottery Results Gadget, so that each new Lottery Results Gadget created on the Sidebar will be pre-configured with whichever games and settings were saved as the defaults.
