    Dont you have to replace the image maps with real buttons. You may have to recode SciCalc, Start From Scratch

    why? Why would using "real" buttons make any difference? (other than being a lot more lines of code)

    the imagemaps are simple and direct. Touch here, do that. It's a direct 1-to-1 relationship. If we switch to "real" buttons, then when you hit shift, we have to update the captions on more than a dozen objects vs swapping two graphics. Why?

    Additionally, we _can't_ use mojo buttons. Mojo buttons will not resize below 45 pixels no matter what you do. Palm's style guide says that's the smallest appropriate touch target, and so, mojo buttons don't go smaller.

    As to why the error dialog doesn't fire, that has nothing to do with the imagemaps. The first line of the header calls the mojo library. a call to Mojo.Controller.errorDialog('sometext') ought to fire an error dialog.

    And I admit tobeing confused by that. I know the functions are firing, I can put in a call to update the results textboxx with the error, and it fires, even if it put it AFTER the mojo call.

    I'm going to mess around a bit and see if I can isolate just that part of the code.

    went to predev
    didnt see a page about "sideloading"
    even typed "sideloading" into search box on that page,nothing came up

    do you have an actual link to the sideloading technicques?

    Sorry. My shorthand.

    Currently known sideloading techniques:

    1) if you root your pre, you can simply use sdf to copy the source files into /var/usr/palm/applications.

    2) if you root your pre you can install any ipk file (signed or not) by typing

    ipkg-opt install http://www.somewhere.com/someipk.ipk

    3) if you root your pre and have copied the ipk to the pre as a USB drive you can install using

    ipkg-opt install /media/internal/nameofipk.ipk

    4) If you download the sdk you can install using

    Palm-install -d usb c:\somepath\nameofipk.ipk

    A community built installer which does not require downloading the sdk should be available very soon, there are two different efforts underway. Keep watching predev.wikidot.net and the forums here.

    1. Download the Mojo SDK to your PC by going here: http://preinsiders.com/home/2009/06/...ed-to-the-web/

    2. Set your Pre to developer mode by typing the following in Universal Search: upupdowndownleftrightleftrightbastart. Follow the prompts.

    3. Hook your Pre to your PC in “Just Charge” mode. Files will (automatically?) install.

    4. Restart your Pre.

    5. Download the desired app to your PC from the Homebrew App thread here: http://forums.precentral.net/homebrew-apps/

    6. Drag the .ipk file for the Homebrew App onto Program Files>Palm>SDK>bin>palm-install.bat on the PC (a cmd prompt will pop up and after this you should see the app icon in your programs on the Pre).

    Any chance you can make a business calculator? Had a great one I paid for on my BB that did margins, markup etc. Use it all the time, desperate for one on my Pre.

    Can you attach a higher-res screenshot to see the new changes better? Thanks!

    App works very nice.

    If I had to critique one thing, it would be that it would be nice to see my whole equation as I'm typing it in...When I type in 4 X (3+5)...I hit the 4, I hit the "X" (and the 4 goes away and I get a ".")...I hit the "(" (and nothing shows that I hit it)...etc.

    I had a scientific calculator on my Storm and it worked very well. Showed the whole equation as you typed it in (you could even backspace and correct any errors). When you had it the way you wanted it...you hit enter (or Equals) and it gave you the answer.

    You need to anchor the page so it doesn't flick up or down. A couple of the game apps did that, intercepting a call of what ever kind.
