The ticker ID I entered is invalid. The widget shows an error message about the number of characters. How do I fix it?

There are two different Mac widgets for LilySlim, the Ticker Widget and the Chart Widget. If the widget displays the error message:

The new ticker id you entered is not valid. Ticker ids must be 12 characters in length ...

It usually means that you have tried to add a ticker ID to a chart widget, or vice versa. On the Widget settings panel, above, the options box it will say; Enter your LilySlim chart details, if it is a chart widget. Or Enter your LilySlim ticker details if it is a Ticker Widget.

enter chart id

If this is the case, just download and install the Widget you need from the following links:
