When you use a Windows Vista Sidebar gadget, you receive an error message that resembles the following:

A Runtime Error has occurred. Do you wish to Debug? Line: <line number> Error: Unspecified error



This problem occurs if the gadget's script code tries to set a gadget event to null. Sidebar gadget events cannot be set to null.


To work around this problem, assign a function to the Sidebar gadget event.


Steps to reproduce the problem

  1. Open the gadget's .html file.
  2. Type the following code inside a <script> tag:
    System.Gadget.ondock = myFunc;
    System.Gadget.ondock = null;
