[feature idea] icons for alias results ?
« on: April 24, 2007, 02:28:13 PM »
Hi mouser,

it would be really nice to have the ability to add a specific icon to an alias result, for example i would love to add specific icons to my following yubnub alias results:

Quote
YubNub $$c | http://www.yubnub.or...arser/parse?command=$$c
Google + $$c | http://www.yubnub.or...rser/parse?command=g+$$c
Yahoo + $$c | http://www.yubnub.or...rser/parse?command=y+$$c
Live Search + $$c | http://www.yubnub.or...er/parse?command=wls+$$c
Whois whois + $$c | http://www.yubnub.or.../parse?command=whois+$$c
ctqui + $$c | http://www.yubnub.or.../parse?command=ctqui+$$c
Delicious + $$c | http://www.yubnub.or...r/parse?command=deli+$$c
Wikip├ędia + $$c | http://www.yubnub.or...er/parse?command=wpf+$$c
IMDB + $$c | http://www.yubnub.or...r/parse?command=imdb+$$c
chars | http://www.yubnub.or.../parse?command=chars
schar | http://www.yubnub.or.../parse?command=schar
php + $$c | http://www.yubnub.or...er/parse?command=php+$$c
mysql + $$c | http://www.yubnub.or.../parse?command=mysql+$$c

it would be much easier to read with some icons...

i think i would be a great feature !

Keep up the good work, i can't wait to see the next release !!!

would you want a separate icon for each result in the alias, or just one used for all results in an alias.

I think it would be very handy if you could specify icon for each result, back to my example :

specific icon for each icon makes the choice easier... one for google, one for yahoo, one for live, etc.

but having a global icon for an alias is a good idea too, and i would use it ! maybe you could add a global icon which shows for every result of the alias but is ignored when one is specified in a result of the alias

Cheers, nitrix

thats not a bad idea, and actually not that hard to add, at least by power users. i'll put it on my todo list, but it will come after i fix all the main functions, so feel free to remind me again after the public release of farr 2 if i dont finish it by then.
