Idea For External Web Based Travel Program
Sorry for all the bad grammer in advance - been a long day and I'm off to bed ...
I'll make it simple ( cos I am ).. in the UK I know of two web pages you can go straght two... would it not be good if you could access them on the move - espcialy as the two I am thinking of would word great in a touch screen enviroment.
Both are free and do not require any logons although a seprate host page would be advisable and easy to make.. any way I digress.
As both of them are shock wave IE is only required as such.. so if some one could produce a programe where by you can run an external prog and display certain pages and may be even cycle though one or two then we could have an easy travel logon ( and not just for the UK ).
You would need a refresh button to force it to check for new info but also a stop dial button just in case like me you pay expensive dial up charges ( GPRS or not ).
I spose it could be further enhanced later ( may be the vew depends on start up vairables ) to do simple control web browsing for touch screens ?
Any way - though I'd off that one up to you lot ;)
PS: Confused hope you don't mind me borrwing your screen dump ;)
Scuse the quality.. its just to give an idea as to what I am saying above ;)
Alpha Version of Traffic web data app
Been busy this lunch time...
At the moment only connects to the two sites terran suggested, but it adjusts accordingly to make sure they look OK on screen.
The connect/disconnect buttons are to be used with your default internet connection. I couldn't test these as my machine at work is on a lan :eek: so anyone with a dial-up connection handy, please test.
Oh almost forget..
