Hi,
I downloaded the Widget "OMNI analogue" from desktopgadgets.com
at Link and noticed that the Widget overrides the default About Box for Desktop's Gadgets. I haven't been able to figure out how to do this. It really makes the Widget look more professional and polished. Any developers here know how to do this type of modification?

Unfortunately we do not officially support anything user created. If you do not receive a response here, you might want to try posting in the OS Customization forums.

The OMNI analogue's About dialog looks more like a splash screen (image blitted onto the center of the screen) than a dialog. There might be some subroutine you can include in your script to achieve this functionality.

Tiggz does amazing and innovative work. This clock is no exception.

I imported the widget version http://www.wincustomize.com/ViewSkin.aspx?SID=1&SkinID=444&LibID=34&comments=1 into DXBuilder. I didn't figure it all out, but essentially he didn't override the About panel, so much as override the right-click menu and make it look similar to the default. After that he made his own actions for the menu selections. Very cool.
