Hamradio did an amazing job with the icons, and it's surprising how dramatic the change is and how much funner it feels to use aliases with nice icons. Thank you also goes to the person who insisted on adding customizable icons (i'll find the old post to give proper credit later).
i think too, nice icons makes aliases funnier (i'm the one who "insisted"
and easier to use too
i don't know if it's easy to implement or not (i guess it depends on the control you use for the list...) but here is my idea to improve a little bit more the cosmetic aspect of FARR:
is it possible to add the possibility to style the results ?
let's say we have an alias named "g" to search google
this alias uses the "$cc" variable as follows
results list :
Google Search $$c | http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=$$c
it would be great to be able to style the result to make your search stands out: (maybe using some kind of bbcode syntax like this very forum)
Google Search [b]$$c[/b] | http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=$$c
or even better...
Google Search [b][color=#0000ff]$$c[/color][/b] | http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=$$c
it would need a bbcode parser... but is it possible with the list control ?
