Gonna stick with the Beeb, or have any plans to add other feeds? I can probably disect the script to mess with it if I get that motivated about it.

Excellent job, and nice use of the graphics.

Cheers Gsmoke, I'll try...
Thanks Aleatoric - funny you should mention the possibility of adding other feeds, the thought had occurred...

Having trouble with Norton and this object. Clicking on any highlight starts a suspected malicious script. Looks like it would great!

This is superb. Very useful. Double clicking display modes works every time. Norton is not picking up problems. Norton can be set to allow this script. I follow a number of Middle Eastern papers to get their perspective on things. Can one of these checkers be set up to allow this? I can see I will need a much bigger monitor to allow for all the extremely useful ideas. Thanks for sharing.

Right on. I got it running. Works great. Adding browser option is handy, very cool!!
Comment #8 Thursday, April 15, 2004 1:33 AM
Clean and simple. Non-intrusive. Good txt contrast. In Norton go to configure....never mind, Wildharp has already got it.

Like this a lot - not much gets to stay on my DX but I think this might have a starring role for some time.

If I had to quibble, it's not plain that you need to double-click and the popup menu doesn't take account of screen boundries. Neither are that important.

Good work.

Keep up this great work!!

This is really great Tiggz! I can't wait to rip it to shreds and customize it, I spent quite a few hours trying to make a news reader...but it always crashed DX. I have never had any problems with any of your objects, I'm thankful for ALL your objects, they never cease to amaze me.

Hi Tiggz - great work! But could you tell me how I go about configuring the different browser windows?
Many thanks,Sue.
Comment #14 Friday, April 16, 2004 4:49 AM
Thx WIldharp - If an rss feed is available, it's readable
Glad you got it working xan der, I had to install 2 extra browsers to test this object
Pleased you like it OC, thanks
JerryHat - yeah you're right, it's always worth a quibble The dbl-clicking was a pure oversight resulting from working all night to finish it and finally uploading at about 6 AM, I didn't notice as I have dx configured with single click as the default. I shall update to remedy this AND to keep the browser choosing pop-up on screen. Until then anyone who wants the single-clicking option, right click on the offending buttons, properties, relation tab, and change "start with" to single click.
Cheers 4letterword, calendar on the way, upgrade for todo list in the works, and another version of the wb whilst I'm at it
Macrobaye -
Thankyou Hus, I think my scripting is getting a bit tidier, and hopefully easier to understand. Rip it apart like the wind!
Sue - thankyou. If you mean how do you make the html open in the different browsers you have to (double) click the little button at the bottom of the object, then a browser from the down menu. If on the other hand you wish to use a different browser, you can right click one of the existing options in that down menu, and edit the script. Hopefully once you are looking at that script it will become obvious what to change. If you mean something else or have difficulties, just post again and we will try and get to the bottom of it

Thanks Tiggz - as I said before great work (I`m even more impressed now that I know how to change the browsers!)
Thanks again,
Comment #16 Friday, April 16, 2004 5:20 PM
Great work, as I said before.
I've got a suggestion to make:
Is it possible to create a notepad kind of object?
I mean a object you can put some notes on? (no todo list)
That'd be too great!
Keep up that outstanding work!!
Comment #17 Friday, April 16, 2004 5:36 PM
no problem Sue
yeah 4letterword, I had had the same thought myself - atm I am currently upgrading the todolist for various reasons, adding features, changing the way it stores the information, hopefully I can use some of the scripting things I'm learning whilst doing it to make a decent notepad
