Yes, this is a great new feature.
The problem is that nearly all my widgets were built in LC 8.1.1.
The HTML5 standalone builder of 9.0.0-dp7 supports now (except of
the browser widget) also widgets. But the handlers where script
access (to my script object) is allowed changed in LC Builder.
So I had first to rewrite the widgets to have them run in 9.0.0-dp7.

As such changes may occur again with each new dp-version, I'll
better wait until the first 9.0.0 stable version.
Hope you have more luck with your widgets.

I have to correct this: Recompiling is not enough because also
LC Builder has changed its behavior for important handlers
(especially for OnPaint).

But you may find some snippets in the lcb file that perhaps could
make your life easier when creating your own digital clock widget.
