I was wondering when this would be updated to match Apple's Calendar widget (which was updated ages ago)! Very nice. Works great with Leopard.

Now that the cloud has come out, it would be nice if the events could be divided into two listings: one for regular iCal events and one for iCloud events. It's hard to delete double items.

One of my favorite widgets (besides my own widget SlothCam of course). The new leopard compatible version is awesome. The big flaw in Apple's iCal widget in Leopard is it can only show events for the current day, not upcoming events. Being able to see upcoming events is what makes this widget great.

I really like(d) this widget, but the new look is exceptionally ugly. Please give us the option to have the old look... there is a reason I don't use Apple's calendar widget. Also, when you resize the widget in its normal display, clicking "i" to show the preferences should preserve the new size instead of reverting it to a miniscule display that only shows about three and a half of your calendars at once.

I love this widget, so much better than any of the other options out there and it works great, especially now that it's Leopard friendly! Great widget, keeps me organised and helps me not forget deadlines! I've been without it since Leopard released and I have been the worse for it. Definitely get this!

Wow -- the "first" version 2.3 was posted in the early afternoon of 11-11-07, and it tallied 919,642 bytes. Now here we are 9 hours later, and the "second" version 2.3 is now posted, weighing in at 381,317 bytes. Are we talking incredibly careless/sloppy programming here? Why the huge difference in file sizes, and why no change in the version number?

This is undoubtedly my most valuable widget, I'm so glad to see its working on leopard. It's my wife's birthday next weekend. If iCal events hadn't reminded me I would have seriously been in the doghouse! Thanks so much iCal events!

Just so you all know, iCal events 2.2.1 does not work with Leopard. Basically, it can't reach any updates to a calendar that I put into iCal after I upgraded to Leopard. The developer said that an update should be coming soon. Just thought I would give you all a head's up.

I've been using iCal Events for a while and it's been great. A couple of days ago I noticed that it's showing events from 2005 even after I've deleted them. Any ideas what might be causing this? Here's some additional info that might be of use... this is on a new iMac that I transfered stuff from my iBook. Yesterday I added the GCALdaemon to sync my iCal with my gmail calendar. I tried closing and reopening iCal Events and making sure my iCal was set to delete events after 90 days.

My suggestion would be to integrate a standard calendar view in iCal events so that there wouldn't be a need to have 2 separate widgets (a calendar widget AND iCal events). When Tiger was first demoed, it looked like that was the direction Apple's calendar widget was going to take, but it looks like Apple bailed on the idea, especially after the seeing the current 10.4.4 widget.

This widget has been great and the new features make it even better. I wonder if there should be an option to have this widget match the new Apple calendar design, but keep the old one around in the prefs as well? The poll didn't allow for this option.

If you could also make a ToDo tracker and updater that looks just like the ical events widgets, that would be AWESOME! Possible even bundled with it.

Everything about this is fantastic, a perfect companion to iCal. The ONLY thing I'd like is for the window size to be able to be resized a little smaller than the current smallest size, which is a bit bigger than I usually need/want it.

Hi Ben, Thanks for the point release - iCal Events hung on download/install for me as well, but 2.1.1 works great. Thanks for proactively developing it; it's a great widget and very handy, and fills the hole left by the Apple calendar widget's ineplicable lack of connection to iCal. Thanks again. S.

I still have that bug, that iCal Events doesn't show my calendars in the setup window. Actually it displays 1 of my calendars, but it's disabled (grey) and when I click on "Done" nothing happens. I started iCal, removed iCal Events from the Dashboard and added it again, now it works. But I don't know for how long :-)

An amazing widget made by an amazing developer. Not only has he constantly updated and improved upon this widget, but he has taken into account user feedback to an extent few developers can match. This widget is economical in size and in its use of resources. It's clean, neat, and fast. I look forward to more widgets from this developer, and I hope more developers follow his lead!

I love this widget, its so useful and I can hardly believe this wasn't something included by Apple! All that I want added is the birthdays calendar you can turn on in iCal's prefs. It grabs the birthdays you set up in the address book and displays them in iCal.

Dashboard Widgets are still in that early phase of development when options/functionality is low, but innovation is high. Fortunately, we have developers like Ben Kazez, who keeps improving iCal Events quickly and according to the needs and requests of his users. We need more people like Ben around--this widget is clean, aesthetically pleasing, and it matches Apple's calendar widget. What amazes me is how fast it synchs with iCal! It may not be completely perfect yet, but it's by far the best Dashboard widget out there so far.

This version (2.0.1) finally works perfect. First release was pretty useless showing just one calendar and v2.0 showed just nothing. Now I only would like to see it resizable (and perhaps giving the option to also display the end time for events). This is just great - it is what Apples useless Calendar widget should have been in the first place.

Works great for me - iBook G4, 10.4.1 At first the program wouldn't let me choose different calendars, but now that it lets me see all my calendars at once, I don't have to worry about that! Might even replace MenuCalendarClock (which has its uses, as well).

Doesn't working: shows nothing, nothing to change in prefs, no turn back to main view (like in previous post). This is the issue about grouped calendars. When there is no groups then widget works...

i was shocked to see that apple didn't include this functionality with dashboard. in my mind it seems like the exact thing Dashboard is ideal for. What is the point of the Apple calendar widget without iCal integration??!! This update fixes the crash on launch problem that i was having, and it looks great now. I have to agree with the other posters tho, it NEEDS to read multiple calendars (i don't need them to specify which calendar they come from), and it NEEDS to read more than a day at a time. Ideally id like it to display the month, with the days with appointments hot linked. Clicking the day calls up all the events for that day. Great start, just needs to be pushed further.

Great promise, not useful yet. Two things make it less than useful: 1. Only one calendar at a time can be shown. At this rate, it takes me far longer to use this widget than to launch and use iCal. 2. Events "in the next 24 hours" is a problem, because what if it is 2:55 pm today and I don't see a 3pm appointment tomorrow? More useful would be "events Today and Tomorrow," or something similar. Fix these issues and this Widget is a winner.

Beautiful Program! Thanks a bunch! Now all of my events appear at the click of a button. I like the way that it only shows the closest events coming up and I don't get bogged down in events that really don't pertain to my next 24 hours. Great Product, I can't wait to see what kinds of features you come up with in the future.

Looks great man, i'm surprised Apple's calendar widget didn't have this ability, but I'm glad someone finally made it. My only problem with this widget if I have to choose which one of my 4 calendars to view. I'd like to see all upcoming events for all of them at once, not just one of them. For example, I keep my class schedules in one, birthdays in another, and another for things I do outside of school.

very cool idea - I'd love to see the ability to view all your calendars at once, and maybe set the viewable range to 1 day, 2 days or 3 days. Something like that. Still, very nice!
