For future reference the source is in the .lce file. The .lce is in zip format. Temporarily change the extension to .zip. You will see the lcb file in there. Also when you install it the source will be in the extension folder. But since I posted .lce I have put in comments starting with "RAD Change" to show where I have made changes. Here is the link to the updated source==>https://www.dropbox.com/s/bv930usovpruo5e/navrad.lcb?dl=0
Thanks for taking a look!
Also I found that after I updated the docs that the docs are generated from the lcb file. I re-built the widget and boom my doc changes were destroyed. No problem I just had redo the docs for my changes in the lcb file. So many unknowns. I am trying to find a way to resize it to the card width with a user setting for height percent of card width. But the docs are so scant and confusing I feel the giant headache coming on again.
