Searching - VersionTrackerSearch

Description: I was surprised that version tracker didn't make a widget for searching but only for new update so i made it with the same interface than their.

Very nice - although can it you make it seach by hitting 'return' rather than having to press 'Search'?
Other than that it is very helpful - thanks.

I guess I don't get a widget like this, here's why:

Widget way:
1) Press F12, If not open,
2) open Widget
3) type name of app in search field
4) press 'Search' button
5) find the file you want
6) connect to VT
7) click download, you have the file

Traditional way:
1) Go to bookmarked VT site
2) type name of app in search field - hit return
3) find the file
4) click download, you have the file

Old way seems like a lot less hassle.

What am I missing?

simply that version tracker homepage is terribly slow to load you are skipping it this way smiley
For the return thing this is due to a bug in the search field if i put it in a form it doesn't work with sentences which contain spaces... many other poeple have the pb we are wiating for an update of apple. smiley

Very cool, and flattering to see. I hope it gets lots of use.

For the record, the official VT widget does support search, for VT Pro subscribers.

This is true, although I don't want to pay $50 just to be able to search from a widget. VT should have made that available to all. Personally I think this widget does the job perfectly.

The widget inside the zipfile should be renamed to VersionTrackerSearch.wdgt instead of VersionTracker.wdgt. The original VersionTracker widget is alsno named VersionTracker.wdgt which prevents your widget from being copied to the Widget-directory.

this 1.2 versione seems a zipped file of the original versiontracker widget, is it right?

No it's another widget than the official which avoid you to make search even if you are not a version tracker suscriber

i know, but the zip i've downloaded from this site is the versiontracker original widget, not yours

Posted by: 3mors on May 05, 05 (8:03 AM) for version 1.0 (previous version)  

no, ok my fault, i think it was a cache problem, your widget name is the same than the original vt widget and when i've replaced the original one with your, dashboard continued to show me the original one

Posted by: prezet on May 05, 05 (1:08 PM) for version 1.0 (previous version)  

1.1 added the possibility to validate by return key 1.2 added the choice of the operating system the last was just to change the name as requested by MacMarco smiley
