The notable thing about the third field of this dashboard is its simplicity. This might stand as an example of how to implement a bare-bones data field...................We don’t need a BackgroundDisplay section for this field. Since there’s no action associated with tapping the field, we don’t need an image to show when it’s depressed. The only way to create a simpler DigitalComponent would have been to omit the TitleDisplay section.
Can I edit dashboards on my Mac?Well… yes, and no. You can certainly edit the files in a text editor; TextWrangler is free and works well. The graphics aren’t a problem either as we have Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Gimp and other alternatives on the Mac. But there’s no Mac equivalent to GIR_Editor, and that’s what you need to put your own images into a dashboard file. You can work through this tutorial on your Mac, but you will be limited to the images that are already included in the files.So I’ll assume you’re using Windows for the tutorial. I’m a Mac user myself, going back to 1985. I’m actually writing this tutorial on my Mac. But for some things, you just have to use Windows.
