Instructions for the Steampunk Penny Red Stamp Widget PDF Print
(1 vote)

stamp-73.pngHere are the instructions for the Stamp Widget. The stamp widget can be assigned the function of your choice. The Stamp Monitor is provided as a Yahoo widget that runs on your desktop behind all your applications so it does not interfere with your day to day computer functionality.

This widget works with Windows XP SP3, it has been tested on Vista Home, Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and Mac OS/X and it should work on all these with no problems whatsoever.  You will of course need to download and install the Yahoo widget engine first - which you can get here:


and the Mac version here:

The widget functionality is self-explanatory, tinker with it and you will soon get to grips with it, you can't do any harm. Think of it as a bit of Victorian eye-candy.

Double-clicking on the stamp will cause a personalised Windows/Mac application to fire up. The first time you run it there will be no assigned function and so it will state as such and then pop up the preferences so that you can enter the command of your choice. The widget takes command line-style commands for windows or Mac OS/X. 

Some example commands for windows:

This command would fire up Mozilla's thunderbird email application:

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe  

This command would open a new outlook mail message:

outlook.exe /c ipm.note

Open a new outlook mail message and populate sender and subject:

outlook.exe /c ipm.note /m

1. Install Yahoo widget runtime engine FIRST.

2. Download the widget

3. When downloaded it should prompt you to ask what you should do with this widget. Tell the o/s to open it with Yahoo widgets.

Where is the download link? Here it is!

Right Click Menu

penny-red-menu.jpgYou can right click on the widget at any time to show the preferences that control the operation of the widget. It will show a pop up menu that allows access to some extra functions. For example, you can access online help from this link as well as visit other links to allow satisfied users to kindly donate...

The Widget Preferences link shows the preferences screen allowing you to select show more configuration options. Some of the configuration changes that can be made can be made.

The other links are generally self-explanatory, they will open pages on my website where you can obtain new versions of the widget, obtain assistance or help from the developer &c.





This is the configuration preference screen where you control sundry items. You may select which stamp image to display, determine which command will be run on a double-click. You can customise the command by replacing it with your own. You can select the widget size and enable/disable sound control.


The default Windows preference screen allows you to change the opacity and order of the the widget.
