    just a word of encouragement.

    I have wanted this app since I picked up the pre. It is so much more efficient than google searches, and I use a medical dictionary for studying all the time. This will be very welcomed. I would offer help but I'm preparing for step two right now.

    I am about to encorporate your app into my studies.

    For example if one enters "Alport" into the seach form at the top, you get 4 results.

    But this URL comes out with nothing:

    Code:
    http://www.whonamedit.com/search.cfm?search=Alport
    @SirataXero - I think if someone can figure out how to search the site, perhaps we can have an additional view for whonamedit.com searches

    @bulls96 - will submit to the App Catalog once the app is a little more mature.
    Once we figure out how to search, we could create a 'Scraper' on my webservice which would search and strip the results, and output in JSON/XML.
    --BTW, it uses POST data, not GET. so ?search=... wouldn't work.

    Here's a quick example..
    Just look at the source of that html.

    OK thanks. I suppose then the solution is to use a Javascript method to submit the search using POST? Not sure how to do this. Perhaps someone can take this further.
    Or else use a server under one's control, pass the search over as a GET and resubmit it as POST data?

    OK this is what I've got so far
    I can send the search variable as a GET to my own server eg search for Addison:

    Code:
    http://palmdoc.net/searchwhonamedit.php?item=addison
    I have added a button at the bottom of each eponym result to search it and display the result in a webview.
    The secondary links do not seem to work for some reason in webview.
    I tested the search above in a normal Pre browser and the secondary links work. Strange!

    Anyway here is the latest build with the whonamedit search button if anyone wants to have a go.

    OK more progress. The secondary links now work. Had to uncheck the "InterrogateClicks" box in the Ares webViewer widget for whatever reason.

    Here's the latest build. Not all the Whonamedit searches seem to work. I guess it is the nature of their database search.
    Later on I can add a page for a free form search for Whonamedit.

    Here's a look at my webservice...
    Service1 Web Service

    The two options should both return in JSON format.. They use numerical ID's. You can also try Consuming this webservice as well for testing.

    Version 1.7.8 now up in Homebrew
    http://uploads.precentral.net/homebr.../eponyms-webos
    The Additional search button takes one to a Search page where you can choose to search Whonamedit.com and Wikipedia (Back swipe makes it easy to repeat the search, and the Search field is editable). This Search page is also accessible from the menu.
    I hope no one hates the yellow background color.

    thanks for getting this app up PalmDoc! It is one of the original apps I had from the beginning on my Palm IIIx, and have really missed from the good ol' days (a year ago...) when everything ran on my Centro. It will be nice to have it natively in WebOS. I hope you are charging a little for it, as it is worth it!

    Absolutely not as this is data from Andrew Yee's project which is entirely freeware for all versions, and besides, I'm glad I can contribute to the medical Palm/webOS community.

    just downloaded earlier and have been studying for step 2 with this, internet free (accept my breaks, like now)

    just used it too look up rassmusens encephalitis and some other dead-white-german-guys name disease.

    I'm really enjoying it, allows me to focus on a book and, with epocrates, get those little niggles of uncertainty out of the way quickly so I can actually study!

    thanks.

    maybe when I have some time I could help add more to the database?

    I really want a good on device app like the old palm epocrates dictionary.

    On first load? Strange. Maybe try again after a luna restart.

    Hopefully it will be approved in the App Catalog making it will be easier for everyone who has access (except those of us in the "non-official countries" which is why I shall maintain it in the repository as well)

    When it hits the catalog, will it automatically update the Preware version, or should that be removed before installing from the app catalog?

    P.S. This is an awesome app, great work!!
