I love that you find all those innovative uses for a simple spreadsheet :) so refreshing.
Very cool, very, very welcome, and containing only a minute amount of bugs. The worst was the dreaded gadget-reducing-to-a-line-bug which may be intrinsic to the Gadgets API).The real bug was that web pages could not be fully scrolled down. This became most apparent when I tested a form and the spreadsheet itself used for my test in the Show-n-tell gadget.And - maybe not a bug as such, more a limitation - it appeared not possible to apply https (secure http) URLs.Once these bugs and limitatation are removed this gadget can become the most popular one, if only because of its versatility.Great work, JR! (I've waited for a gadget like this a long, long time.)
Thanks for the feedback!Ahab - we've had quite a tough time isolating that "gadget-reduces-to-a-line" bug - I have't seen it in recent releases. Let me know if you have a set of repeatable steps and I'll get others at work to go after it too. Also must look into the https issue - this is why I "release" stuff like this on my personal blog - it just didn't go through the normal release steps yet.I'm glad you too think it's a pretty versatile gadget - I can think of 100 things to do with it... You've inspired me to get this on our gadget picker (it's not there yet).Thanks!
ok, great..thanks, this can so refreshing!!
Hello Jr, I am using your show n tell gadget...for charting some data...got a doubt..When i select a range from where the contents are picked up ,how do i hide the cell description that is coming on top of my chart .For you reference i am sharing the sheet where i have deployed you gadget.https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=tIcgOiPALUIrrd2O5tCp4vg&waffle=false&forced=true#gid=0
Saif, Looks like i need to offer an option to hide that description (URL). Not sure when I'll get to that - but will try.
Thanks for your reply Jr.Looking forward to your implementation.It definitely saves space on screen when the gadget is used for charting purposes.
