Harry Pothead and the Widget of Desire

Well i wrote my first widget today !
A most gratifying feeling well done IBM a wonderful addition to the client.
Thanks to the various bloggers that posted a HOW TO in the past few days.

My widget recognizes one of our part numbers, can when clicked calls a Domino Web Agent
that nips off looks up various tables in our DB2 tables and Notes Applications and presents the user with a nicely formated page of HTML that summarizes stock sales and the like. Into a nice wee graph (courtesy of YUI's charting library) and a clatter of tables.

Now Chris Blatnik has set me thinking in this post what about splitting it into several widgets and having a dashboard..... oooooooooo..... i see some fiddling coming at the weekend.
