Hello CE Geek, going okay over here thanks! Been a long time!

RE the calendar thats great to hear! I'm going to dig up my old source code and have a look whats there.

I do recall that one of the Casio "office" objects (could have been contacts) had an unpublished API that I managed to get working in the today screen.

I know you created Today plugins that draw data from Casio Calendar (\Nand Disk\My Documents\Appointment) and Casio Tasks (\Nand Disk\My Documents\ToDo), but I don't recall a Casio Contacts plugin.

Looking for a still-working download link for the MIPS version of Calendar Plus, I found out there were two versions out there almost simultaneously by two different sources. The SBSH version I referenced earlier never had a Pocket PC 2000 version (and thus was ARM only), also displayed Tasks, and wasn't freeware, selling for 8-9 USD. But another version that looked very similar, had an almost identical name (Calendar+, using the plus sign rather than the word), had MIPS and SH3 versions, and was freeware:

That version is the one I'm using on the BE with the POOM databases installed.

I finally got hold of a cobalt blue BE-500 from Japan, for a mere 32 USB including shipping from Japan to the US through third-party international distributor Buyee. It's in very good condition. Even cooler, the package also included a USB charging cable that fits the power jack of the BE. Pics are below.

I mentioned earlier in this thread that TodayAgenda isn't transparent in Tcharts Today, but upon further examination I learned that that's not true. There is indeed a transparent background checkbox in the settings; however, I was testing it on a BE-500 in landscape, where that item is not visible in the settings window. It does, however, show up in portrait mode, and so I was able to enable transparency by temporarily switching to portrait mode. In landscape it also renders better in a .tsk-based skin in BeShell than in a .bmp-based skin, not cutting off the text at the 240th horizontal pixel like other plugins do. There are a few landscape .tsk skins that display properly in BeShell, but they don't display properly in Tcharts Today outside of BeShell, even though Tcharts Today 1.x supports .tsk files for the background. tchart hasn't been around here since his last post, but if he stops by again, maybe he can check this out.

A screenshot of tAgenda can be seen on this page:

There are many other settings that can be modified, including number of lines, font size, etc.

Eureka!

I finally solved the mystery of the missing Casio Contacts list display in Bee and EpodXP on the BE-500. I suspected that a missing SIP was a culprit, since the New dialog would close immediately after opening before anything could be inputted. Both keybddr.dll and softkb.dll are present in ROM on the device, but a third DLL file actually supplies the keyboard layout. So I installed QKeys (a third-party English-Russian keyboard that is included in both BeShell and eXpod), flushed the registry, soft reset, and voila! Contacts data showed up.

Not quite sure why this problem didn't crop up in Casio Calendar nor in Casio Tasks. Maybe those two aren't technically dependent on any text entry in order to save an item.

I've seen a few posts about the BE-500. We got the file to change a BE-300 to a BE-500 and a BE-500 to a BE-300. I had a BE-500 and changed it to a BE-300. The work on it should be in the developers den. I miss all the fun we had making the BE the fun unit it was.

There was no discussion there of DispChgDemo, though, which rotates the display to landscape and is free (unlike Nyditot Virtual Display and JS Landscape) but only works on the BE-500 (unlike NVD and JSL).
