Some ideas for your bblean creations
This thread is for letting others know what sort of design or functionality you have added to your bblean builds.
Here are some of the ideas I have had a bit of a play with:
:: Emulating a linux 'conky' display ~~ With this one, I found that bbSysmonplus and bbInterface was all I needed to get the end result. You can add tabs and newlines to your bbsysmonplus by inserting a /t or /n into the string where needed. bbInterface can add visual representations (such as bars or graphs) of the things that bbsysmon is monitoring, and it also makes it possible to have a secondary color in your conky display. If you have a non-solid color background, then you can create a frame/border around your conky display so it doesn't harshly collide with your background. This is what I mean by conky for those who are not familiar
:: Using bbBalloon to show 'more info' to something on your interface ~~ I'm not sure whether many of you have found a use for bbBalloon, but here is an idea of what I used it for. Say you have created a menu like this one
. Now, to the right of each of the buttons that launch the designated applications, you create an info
button. When this button is clicked, a bbBalloon will emerge, displaying the version and/or date of your application. For example, if you clicked the info button for Firefox, a bbBalloon would say "v3.5 beta4 04/27/09". To do this, you [of course] need to use bro@ms. bbInterface allows you to execute bro@ms from button presses, but here you need to execute more than one bro@m at once (one for the location, and one for show). The bblean docs
give reference to the 'Script' function, which is a perfect solution.
So, what kind of stuff have you done?
