I think the mistake is not in the calendar dropdown but in the dropdown. Prehaps, I didn't change the file name for some widgets, and now there is a conflict. So, I recommend to delete the ../ directory and to launch again "Skins demo". All will run fine (I hope). For the slowness, I can have some explanations : -First, if it is the first time you launch Skins demo, all image files are downloaded when you select a new skin. -Then, if all files are downloaded, when you change the skin, all the widgets are built again in memory with the new skin, and all the faces are built again with the new widgets. -When a big image file is used, it can take more time to update in memory (see the Metal skin) ==> So, to make a skin more light and usable, do not use big image files. Any comment ? -- regards. --- Etienne
