Putting together a widget for BlogEngine.net is fairly easy. This makes the BlogEngine.net platform very attractive to .Net programmers who can easily leverage the power of the .Net framework in extending the BlogEngine framework. Creating the widget is just a matter of subclassing one or two base classes and overriding a few members. With a WebClient control, it’s easy to download content from the internet and then use the full power of the .Net framework to present it in a concise and attractive format. I’ve created a widget that displays the stats for a user at Run.GPS. In this article, i'll show how it's done.
