Google Calendar Widget not reading all day events correctly

We have some all day events on our calendar and they all show up in the "Today" section of our widget even if they don't start until later in the week. Also, is there a way to make the ending time not show up if it is the same as the starting time? And does the scroll have to fade away after it reaches the end of the time period? Can't it just continue to scroll like the old gadget did?

I am really not liking this new widget. The old gadget was WAY better!

We are aware of the all day events showing up under Today's heading. We hope to have that addressed shortly. I'm not aware of a method that will drop the end time if it is the same as the start time.

You can certainly take the Widget and make it your own so that it will scroll differently.  We do appreciate the feedback.

Thanks!

You'll need to take the source code, which you can find here.  Once you have the source, you can then modify it to your needs.  When it is ready, you'll just need to host the Widget and then add it to your Gadgets page.  You can then add it to a Presentation via the Your Content selection under the Add menu.

Thanks.

As an FYI, the bug regarding all day events has been corrected.  You may need to clear your Display's cache for the changes to be seen.  This will automatically happen on Scheduled Restarts.

You can also go to the Display's page and press the Restart Player button to clear it right away.

Thanks.
