Custom Widgets


Recommended Posts


Can someone give me some pointers on the code required for custom widgets. I want to explore the options for adding information to a dashboard and for starters a London travel widget and London Weather widget.

I can get it to add website but I cant quite understand the code required for a Div widget. I watched the video on the wiki but it is a bit unclear in terms of the code he pastes into the URL section.

Any help appreciated!

Hi @Tel8oy

I have embedded a weather widget in an iframe 


Messed around with the widget values for height, width, colour etc to get it to present well on a dashboard widget in Hornbill.

Thanks thats great, any ideas about DIV?

for instance TFL offer this code for Tube status updates

<div style="width:260px"><script language="JavaScript" src="https://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/syndication/widgets/serviceboard/embeddable/serviceboard-iframe-stretchy.js"></script></div>
