Ive read the stuff on start.com blog / and the new
dev center ... and ive downloaded the code samples
im finding it too complicated to do what i want to try - which is basically just a table with stuff in it - or an iframe of what ever size.
In the samples there is a css/js and xml file
I can figure out pointing the xml/rss - as shown to make the samples work - but the samples are mainly program code or plain links
the rumour city demo is the closest - as it shows you can have an image.
but what if i want to show a regular page - with nothing but an image on it - that is image mapped?
again - like above - i really just want to make whatever in frontpage - with graphics and mouseovers and dhtml and stuff ive used for 6 years... and only use this "new" programming stuff to pull it in
if an iframe can be pulled in as a gadget - i could do everything i want
(like make a small component to display c9parks)
as you can see - i have no need to run real "code" - i just want to pull in a container that will display a REGULAR page made with a regular editor using only graphics / jscript/dhmtl
Does all this stuff need to be built in xml / js bla?
if so - its too hard for me to do
in essence what i need is:
<content is here: http://wwww.channel9.ca/gadgets/etc>
then for the xml file i just want it to go:
<iframe src= channel9.ca/gadgets/c9park.htm(or asp)
so when you add the gadget - it pulls in a page (done to correct size) that could have mouseovers, images etc
i am a gadget iframe
i am a gadget table
