    Hi Eddy,

    nice work, but why don’t you investigate on google gadgets, they are availible for mac an windows, and soon they be availible for linux. write once, use anywhere, and they have a simular sidebar like in windows vista.

      Hi,

      Most of the widgets for SAP depend on the Yahoo widgets.
      I’ve already published the same widget for Opera, Mac OS X and others. I’m constantly investigating new ways and wanted this time to show how things are done under Vista. After all, we’re here to learn new things, aren’t we?

              Benjamin,

              What’s in a name. I’ve already looked at them in the past and they look rather similar to the Vista ones or vice versa. Pls do publish your findings.

    Would it be possible for you to create a gadget that doesn’t open the browser window, but creates a list of search results within the gadget itself. Then clicking on an item opens a browser window and displays the correct content. 🙂

    Theres a challenge for you

    I create a yahoo widget that does the same thing, but mainly so I could learn how to do it (you should see the regexp I used, real crazy). I haven’t released it anywhere, but it worked really well

        Indeed, however, there are only so many hours in the day, and the platform team has a million and one other things lined up. We are only a small team 🙂

        Let me know if you need the regexp that I have used to parse the current search results, as it works really well. Unfortunately I can’t claim the glory for this regexp, it was created by one of my SDN platform team colleagues, Darran, who is somewhat skilled at this type of thing.
