Vista Sidebar Gadget Using WPF

I really haven’t posted much about Sidebar Gadgets in Windows Vista since my first post, Windows Vista Sidebar and Gadgets, I really haven’t looked to how many good usable ones were out there, since I’m not running Vista yet. Saw this post on Techmeme, Inkable Sidebar Gadget in Vista using WPF and this little gadget looks like it was pretty easy to create. Hopefully there are a lot of programmers creating some good stuff. I’ll have to look around sometime and see what out there.

Today, I played around wtih Vista Sidebar Gadgets. I wanted to see if it was possible to leverage Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) in a sidebar. Turns out you can. In fact, you can drop in an inkable InkCanvas extremely easily too.

She posted the program already here.
