Hello, Im a total noob to Widgets and as I would expect Im having a few issues that Im hoping you can give me some directions with… I have made a couple of RSS feed Widgets using the Apple template as my guide. Built the all be it very basic look of the things without any problems. I would now like to add some addition functionality to these and this is where Im now stuck at. On the back of my Widget I have placed a selector (Popup Button) with a few pre-defined labels & values now what I would like help with is re-directing the RSS feed on the Widgets front when this item is changed. I have added an onchange event and pointed this to my feedSwitch() function now what do I need to add to accomplish this? I hope I've made some sense of that… TVM

These tutorials accomplish a similar thing.

Thanks a lot for the prompt reply… I did do a search of the forum clearly not enough though… The first link looks pretty close to where I was at I will now do some checking… And see how I get along…

Last link talks about preferences too, which could be useful. If you have questions ask away, but it sounds like you've probably got enough knowledge to figure out what you want to do from what's there.
