Maplin Electronics Catalogue Search Widget

:: The Maplin Catalogue Search widgetThis widget will give you a quick and easy way to search the Maplin Catalogue. It is written for Netvibes UWA, which means it will also run on Windows Vista, iGoogle, and other widget platforms.

Click here to install the widget on the platform of your choice.

How it Works

UWA widgets are created using standard HTML and Javascript and make extensive use of AJAX. This widget uses AJAX to send the user's search terms to an ASP page, where they are used to query a database of Maplin products - the same database that I use on my Electronics in Meccano website.

The search results are returned to the widget in JSON format and are displayed using the Netvibes Pager control for a user-friendly way of moving through long lists of results.
