    Default Demo -> Yahoo Maps from WAS app

    I added something to my demo that I think rises to the level of 'cool enough to show'. My WAS application stores addresses for clients that my customers have to visit twice during the sales process. So, I added a link that opens up Yahoo Maps to the address of the client. It was very easy!

    Actually, this is similar to how I added a link to the United Parcel Service, but more cool.

    If you want to see, go to http://support.attorneystrust.com:81. Follow the instructions to run the demo. Open the Job Tracking menu item and look to the far right of the grid.

    For fun, there are 15 addresses in the demo. They are legitimate addresses, but not those of the Clients listed -kudos for anyone that can tell me what nationally recognized restaurant chain the addresses belong to.

    That's a nationally recognized chain? Nope, wrong. But thanks for agreeing its cool. I'm about to update it so when the map opens, it shows the driving directions from the Agent's office to the Clients home. I don't know if they still do, but Bigfoot White Pages used to allow this same sort of thing - you could link a telephone number to the reverse directory. Click it and it would show the address of the subscriber. I once provided that in an html telephone bill as part of a telecom package. But they had me remove it because it was considered an invasion of privacy.

    Very nice Steve.

    If you can't do the driving directions with Yahoo, you should be able to with Google maps. They even have a satellite view of the addresses, but you can't make out the orange shirts on it ;)
