6 events on your S60 5th Edition phone's home screen. It consists of tree
7 separate widgets, displaying 4 events each.

14 You can change the appearance (background color, font color, font size etc.)
15 and settings from within the widget now. To make the widget background
16 transparent, follow these steps:
17
18 1. install "ComingNext Skin Fetcher" on your phone
19 2. start it on your phone and click on "Generate". It will ask you for the
20 positions of the ComingNext widgets on the homescreen.
21 3. In the ComingNext widget, enable the "use background image" option and set
22 "background image location" to "external"

25 Supported Devices:
26 ------------------
27 This widget should be compatible with any Symbian S60 5th and
28 Symbian^3 Edition phone. The homescreen mini view however will only be
29 available on devices which support homescreen widgets.
30
31 ComingNext has been tested on the following devices:
32 Nokia N97, N97 mini, C6, C7, E7, N8
33
34 The fullscreen version of this widget also works on the following devices:
35 Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, 5530 XpressMusic, 5230, 5250, 5228, 5230 Nuron,
36 5235 Ovi Music Unlimited, X6

39 Known limitations:
40 ------------------
41 - ToDos might show up although they have been marked "done". This is a bug in
42 Nokia's WRT library: entry.Status sometimes is undefined.
43 - real transparent background: I haven't found a way todo this yet. All the
44 widgets that have transparent background are no WRT widgets. Nokia?
45 - There is no automatic detection if you're in a timezone that uses daylight
46 saving time (DST). By default, the widget assumes that you're in a timezone
47 that has a 1h DST. If this is not the case, please change the
48 "enable Daylight Saving" setting within the widget.
49 - Some users may get an error like "Error: Loading Calendar Service". This is
50 due to a corrupted Symbian configuration file in C:\Private\2000f847. You
51 will have to reset your phone to get rid of the error. Do not restore files
52 from a backup, or you will restore the broken config too. An alternative is
53 to replace the corrupted config file manually, but you will need to hack
54 your phone in order to have access to it. You can find the non-corrupted
55 version of that config here:

61 How to obtain log file for solving issues:
62 ------------------------------------------
63 In order to analyse problems or bugs, it can help to obtain the detailed widget
64 log file. You can generate a log by following these steps:
65
66 1. Open your browser and go to Web > Settings > General
67 2. Set "JavaScript Error Notification" to "Create Log file"
68 3. Remove the widget from your homescreen and add it again
69
70 The log file will be generated here: C:\Data\jslog_widget.log. When you report
71 a problem, send along this file so that the developers can analyse the issue.

100 event text

149 app.
150 - 5 new options: showNowAsText, nowText, dateFormat, updateDataInterval
151 and calendarApp
152 - events that last for multiple days will now properly show "Today"
153 - if an event is currently taking place, display "Now" instead of the

155 showNowAsText option. You can change the color of the "Now" text by
156 changing the .now CSS class
