Is it possible to move a dashboard widget to a specific coordinate? I looked in google, and there's no specific answer to it.

I asume that there should be some plist file somewhere with the numeric coordinates of each widget that can be programatically set using automator or something.

Could you be more specific what you actually trying to do. – Buscar웃 Jun 10 '13 at 4:06
Just grab one of my widgets in the dashboard and center it in the screen... :P – edgarator Jun 10 '13 at 8:54
