This is just a shot in the dark but is there any way to save the user's settings, so that when they shutdown and startup their computer the gadget shows up exactly as they left it? I mean, color changes, icon arrangements, any and every change they made. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

My object has 2 states. There's a different picture for each state.How do I remotely change the picture for each state keeping in mind that each state has a different picture assigned to it.I have tried:DesktopX.Object("myob").State("state1").Picture = "mypic.png"DesktopX.Object("myob").State("state2").Picture = "mypic2.png"but that did not work.Am I missing something? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I am using DesktopX 3.0. How do I make a shortcut that when completed into a widget, can be configured by the user. I made a shortcut object in DX builder mode then I exported the object as widget.
