Thanks for sharing this great object. Keep up that great work! (It wasn't necessary to install the font. , but thanks for attaching it.)

Great work as always Matt. Only one small problem and that's due to my ignorance. I've tried to edit the script to call up Amazon.co.uk instead of Amazon.com. Now it functions fine but I'm getting an error message:-

(null)
Line: 7
Code:
(not available)

What else do I need to alter - this is the address as it now reads:-

"http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/search-handle-url/?index=blended&field-keywords="

Any ideas ?

Ooops should have seen that coming - its turned into a link. Well no matter, literally all I did was alter Amazon.com to Amazon.co.uk.

Update - turning it back into a widget got rid of the error message - now all I need to do is work out how to get those little mouseover images to play as well - somehow I managed to lose them in the transition back to widget - go figure LOL

4letterword - better to be safe than sorry

Journeyman - you broke it! How I was finding the correct URLs was going to a particular site and running a search, then taking the resulting URL, inserting it in the script, trying it, and then usually having to knock some off the end of it...not terribly scientific I know, but then dx is alot more like cookery than science.

I'd break an Angel's heart before I'd break one your pieces Tiggz

No as I say, the error message disappears and the URL functions seem to call up fine once its changed back to a Widget. But where did my little images go - apart from the first Google one - they don't show up on my revamped widget (I've tried it twice with same result - must be the UK URL sent em all shy and retiring LOL

Tiggz, What's the chance you can make a version that matches the K-Display graphical look...or, maybe add it to the K-Display Remote...

WickedP - it's a possibility to add a search module onto K-Display, when I get a spare moment

BoXXi - my pleasure.

i figured this out. if it looks like mine then you need to go properties/summary andreset width and height to image default and it will be fine. - cheers!
