Yes, one of the features is SideShow support, and a SideShow device can sort by state.  However, it was WAY too much to do in the gadget itself for version 1 though.  Create multiple instances of the gadget if you have too many games loaded to find a state easily.

Thanks.

    @sysp34:

    Your comment is not correct:

    "btw the LP gadget won't work on Vista unless the Microsoft launch SP3 in the future to add the sidebar."

    I think you have a few things confused in that sentence.  I think you meant "won't work in XP".  The other thing is that Microsoft will NEVER release a Sidebar for XP.  The only reason they're doing another service pack is because they ran out of serial numbers for the last service pack.  Not to add features.

    ops sorry Todd

    i mean LP gadget won't work on XP

    also i don't know anything about latest service pack deal with thank for the info

    although there are another resource on the net how to add sidebar RTM on XP which is might be work because they referring to gadget.live maybe later i give a try again when i come to my friend

        Thanks Todd,

        I have downloaded the gadget and it works swell.

             I won't be upgrading until after the first of the year, but this is going to save me a lot of time. I check the PowerBall results every Thursday and Sunday, and MegaMillions every Wednesday and Saturday. I also check the daily results for South Carolina, Delaware, Virginia, Florida, Michigan and Ohio.

             All of these are in my "Favorites" list but, since I still use a dial-up modem, it can take a while to scroll to each link (I'm too lazy to organize them more efficiently), and I can usually get in a game of solitaire or two by the time the requested page comes up.

             For people like me who are stuck in the stone age of computing, Todd's gadget is a Godsend; everything I want with one click of the mouse. I'm sure those who use DSL will benefit from this technology as well.

             Look for other lottery sites to begin offering knock-off models of Todd's idea and promoting it as their own (they do it all the time). When that happens, everyone here will know who the real trend setter is. LotteryPost.com has always offered better, more numerous and more useful features than any other lottery-related web site. Todd's gadget is just the latest thing to crawl out of his mind, but I'm sure he's busy, even as I write this, dreaming up more ways to make our lives just a little bit easier. 

             Nice work, Todd!

          Come, Pinky; we must prepare for tomorrow night...

              Unfortunately, no.  I may create a Mac version in the future, because they have a similar technology, called "dashboard".  That would be a long time off thought, because I'd first need to come up to speed on developing for that platform.

              Thanks for the feedback.

                      WOW, that's fantastic!  Do you see that Windows XP people?  I'm surprised they were able to pull it off, but the fact is, there it is running under XP.

                            Remember parental controls Miss! We surely dont need a bunch of kids getting hooked on gambling! Do we? Helping kids get out of a bad situation isnt something you have to wait till you win the lottery! We all can play a part in helping them now! I once started a homeless mission where I had hundreds of customers and didnt win the lottery! I started it with only a minimal amount, just enough to feed them and cloth them and the aid of the community! So please less dreaming and more doing is what I say!

                            ACTION is the key to your dreams not winning the lottery! Just trying to keep it real!

                            One such as yourself with such a beautiful heart should never let her passion go to waste waiting around till she wins the lottery!! Do it now while your young and beautiful before you look back on a lot of years wasted! Its nice to dream but better to put a dream into Action!
