Simple Calendar Widget
I like the idea of it so much, that I incorporated the idea into my Moon Clock app, to show the phases of the moon forever. Then I figured out how to work that into the Android widget for Moon Phases that I already had. Then it occurred to me, that I would really like to have a very simple little calendar like this on my desktop as a widget.
Of course, nothing is ever as easy as it first appears. I thought it would be a piece of cake to draw the calendar in a widget the same way as in a main activity. It's not like that, though. The system handles those things totally differently. It's really just a matter of different coding. The basics are still the same. What I really wanted was customization. And that part worked exactly as expected. Basically, the preferences are set and saved from the avtivity, and the widget reads those shared preferences. More than you need to know, but that's how it works.
