The Answer Gang

(?) HTML page selector

From Sluggo

Here's a nifty HTML device for previous/next/goto page links similar to MS Access's record selector.

I had to use the "display:inline" style on the form to keep it from jumping to the next line. I also used that for the <DIV> to keep the gray background from spreading the entire screen width.

Attachments: snapshot3.png, pageLinks.html, pageLinks.css

BTW, the 'iv' program is a great fast-starting image viewer.

See attached pageLinks.html

See attached pageLinks.css

(!) [Ben] _Nice!_ I'll be playing with that gadget. Thanks, Mike! As to "iv", well...

ben@Fenrir:~$ su -c 'apt-get install iv'
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Package iv is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
E: Package iv has no installation candidate

In the spirit of exchange: if you want really nice pull-down (or pull-out) menus and don't mind JavaScript, take a look at Tigra Menu (http://www.softcomplex.com). A really nice, free implementation that works fine with every browser I've tested (which even the best CSS-based menus I could write - or find - don't.)

(?) It looks like that's a different program. The 'iv' I found was in Gentoo and its homepage is http://wolfpack.twu.net/IV

The Debian 'ida' program is from http://linux.bytesex.org/fbida

(http://packages.debian.org and the copyright file didn't list the home page, so I googled "ida graphics software" and found a listing at http://www.freebsdsoftware.org/ports.php?c=graphics&n=ida that links to the above page with the correct domain name and author's name (Greg Knorr). But the Debian package says the original is the Debian source, so maybe he's a Debian developer. Or maybe Debian no longer lists the external home page in the copyright file?
