I wanted some more proof that my .NET Sidebar Gadget Creator works so I started a new .NET based UserControl from scratch. Guess what, it does work. After I wrote the code for the WebCamControl in .NET, I fired up the .NET Sidebar Gadget Creator, went through the wizard to create the gadget files and it worked the 1st time in the Sidebar. It literally took me about 1 minute to get it up and running (not counting the code for the actual WebCam stuff).
Here's a screenshot:
Here's a link to download the gadget:
Please note that this has only been tested locally on my machine using a LifeCam VX-6000. Your webcam may or may not work. If it does, let me know. If it doesn't...I guess let me know that too 🙂
