[ZWeb] CFV: Result batching for nzo search results
Mon, 22 Apr 2002 07:43:29 -0400
Excellent, thanks Tom! This is good news. I was preparing my speech
for tomorrow, whining about nobody picking up any of these CFP tasklets.
Now that Tom has started an avalanche of participation... :^)
Tom, the simplest thing to do, from my POV:
1) Create a large set of subfolders in a folder in one of your own
sandboxes, say 40 items.
2) Use objectIds on that folder as the "search results".
3) Try to format the pages.
4) Email me for access to the nzo skin folder.
