Lottery Results Gadget Features
|Worldwide lottery results||The Lottery Results Gadget offers lottery results from around the world. It is currently capable of displaying the results of every regular lottery game played in the United States, Canada, Ireland, and Britain.|
|New countries and games||Lottery Post is continuing to add new countries and games. When a new country and/or game is added the gadget will automatically make it available — without software updates.|
|Custom sound effects||You can decide what sound is played when new results and jackpot arrive, or you can instruct the gadget to stay completely silent. You can even have multiple gadgets on the screen at one time, each with its own sound effect, so you can tell which one has the new results. Comes packaged with a large library of fun sounds.|
|Direct links to game detail||At Lottery Post, we know that lottery players want not just latest results, but they also want detailed game information, previous draw data, statistics, jackpot history, and more. That's why every game shown in the gadget is hot-linked directly to it corresponding Game Information page online.|
|Jackpot alerts||The announcement of a new jackpot receives the same attention in the gadget as new lottery results. You'll hear the sound effect (if enabled), and the game will jump right to the top to let you know.|
|Gadget resizable||You can decide how big the docked gadget will be. If you have multiple gadgets on the screen at once, each one can have a different size.|
|Custom font sizes||This feature is especially treasured by those who find reading small text difficult. Choose from a variety of font sizes, depending on your needs. As with other customization features, if you have multiple gadgets on the screen, each can have a different font size.|
|Expanded/Undocked view||The gadget includes both a smaller view for when the gadget is docked in the Sidebar, and a larger "Expanded/Undocked" view that is displayed when you drag the gadget off the Sidebar and onto the Windows Vista desktop area. In addition to physically being larger, the expanded view gives you additional detail not present in the normal docked view. In Windows 7 and higher, because there is no longer a Sidebar, the gadget is placed directly on the Windows desktop area, and the Smaller/Larger button allows you to toggle the view between the regular and expanded views.|
|Flyout view||Popup an expanded view, including all its added detail, with a single mouse click, and then close it with another single click. This is great for times when you're looking for quick access to additional detail, without dragging the gadget off the Sidebar.|
|Supports SideShow devices||Use the gadget to feed an external laptop display, electronic picture frame, remote control, or any other SideShow device. Support includes several different views, such as sorting options, top 10, 15, and 20 latest updates, and results updated today. You can even disable SideShow support for an extra performance bump.|
|Your time zone||Your time zone is detected by the gadget, and the lottery result update times are automatically adjusted to your time zone.|
|Automatic version checking||The gadget will periodically make sure you're using the latest version. A download link is provided for instant upgrades.|
|Multi-language support||The Lottery Results Gadget comes with built-in support for English, Spanish, and French languages. (More to be added in the future.) The gadget will sense your computer's language preference and automatically change the interface to that language.|
|E-mail / RSS Notification||To alert you of important news and upgrades available, you can sign up for e-mail notifications and/or syndicated RSS feed. These are optional services, although we recommend signing up for at least one of them. Both are 100% spam-free.|
|Upgrade reminders||If a new version of the gadget is available but you're not ready to upgrade, you can instruct the gadget to remind you once a day, or to ignore the upgrade entirely.|
|Latest results first||The lottery results are presented in the order that they were updated, with the most recent updates at the time. When a new result comes in, it is displayed right at the top.|
|Last update notice||The date and time of the latest results update is clearly displayed. You'll find this more useful, and refer to it more often, than you might expect.|
|Connection detection||The gadget will display a warning message if an Internet connection cannot be established, or if the gadget cannot communicate with the lottery results service.|
|Online help||We believe excellent support is as essential as any other function of the gadget. The Lottery Results Gadget includes full, detailed documentation online, which is accessible with a single click. We even provide basic assistance for common Windows gadget/Sidebar problems.|
|Save default settings||This is a high-tech feature pioneered by Lottery Post! With other Sidebar gadgets, each time you drag a new gadget onto the Sidebar it starts with the same default settings as the day you installed it. The new technology in the Lottery Results Gadget lets you change the defaults, so every new gadget starts with your personal settings — even including a default set of games! For example, you can have all new gadgets start pre-loaded with all the California lottery games.|
|Network activity light||An unobtrusive indicator shows you when the gadget is communicating with the lottery results service.|

In Figure 2, the gadget is shown in its Expanded state.

In Windows 7 and higher you can also click the Smaller/Larger button that appears on the right side of the gadget to toggle it between the regular and expanded views.
The wider format of the Expanded view permits the use of a wide tabular format, full names (e.g., "California" instead of "CA"), and additional data, such as the Last Update date/time for every game.
