    I am using the stock calendar and have the widget on one of my homescreens. I have it sized to approximately 3/4 the width of the screen and the full length. Until yesterday, it would show the next 6-7 events in my calendar and I could scroll down and see yet a couple more. Yesterday, it would only show 5 and I couldn't scroll to see more events. Today, I am down to 4. I tried resizing the widget with no improvement. There are just the next 4 calendar items and blank space underneath it. The events are still in my calendar, they just aren't showing up on the widget. I tried turning the phone off and back on. I tried deleting the widget and adding it back on. This morning I re-synced the google calendar and my outlook calendar and everything is still there. I just don't know why it won't show up on the widget like it used to ????

    The stock Droid 3 calendar widget was always problematic for me. It is an attractive widget, for what that's worth, but idoesn't show all day events for the current day, for example - it considers them completed. Basically, once an event begins, it disappears from the widget.

    Sorry that I can't answer your question - the same thing is not happening to me when I install the widget myself, and there do not appear to be any applicable preferences for the widget.

    At the moment, I do not use any calendar widgets. However, I downloaded and use a third party calendar app called Business Calendar. Even if you do not use the app, it gets data from the stock calendar and it has widgets; though not scrollable or resizeable, it has scroll controls that allow you to load more events.

    There is a free version that displays ads in the app (though not in the widgets, I believe), and the for-pay app also lets you configure the widgets more. The paid app is $4.99.

    [edit] I forgot that there is another widget app that I used to use called Android Pro Widgets. Despite the "pro" in the name, they are free. It may be a solution as well.
