Using Flash in Dashboard widgets on Leopard
In a previous post, I mentioned that Flash in Dashboard widgets wasn't working well for me in Leopard. Specifically, I tried making one of my bunny widget via the cool new "Open in Dashboard" feature in Safari and I couldn't type in the input text field and the data exchange didn't work for me. Well, it must be an intermittent thing because today, it's working like a champ! :)
Yay, Flash works in Dashboard widgets on Leopard. That rocks!
To make your own Flash Dashboard widget, simple browse to the site that has your Flash application, control-click it and select Open in Dashboard, select the area that contains your Flash application, and press return.
Voilà, you have a Flash Dashboard widget!
