Showing Web Content in a Contact TAB

[ Edited ]

Published 20 June 07 05:55 PM

OK, I got some comments that by naming my sample "ContactContextWebBrowser", I made it as clear as mud what this control does.  So, here is a plain (OK plainer) English explanation.

the control is really about unstructured Data integration.  It basically shows how data from external web sites (or internal intranet sites if you wish) could be easily integrated into the ACT! layout.  This uses some simple SDK capabilities to construct a URL based on a template + Contact field values and fetch that URL and display in a TAB in the contact layout.
For example, you can easily show data from Google maps, Linked in, Google Search, Zillow (or content from an internal web site) in TABs in the contact layout.  Checkout the images below for a visual example of what you can do with this control.

 If you want it, the binaries and the source code are attached.

Don't forget to let us know what you think, by either commenting on the blogs, rating the downloads or reviewing / commenting on the downloads.
