yep. I especially want to be able to have add-ons as little re-usable
widgets without having to individually code them on each page. For
example, the little smbd log widget would be great to have available
on every page, which the user pops up when needed.

ok, that could work. Andrew, does that sound OK to you?

ahh, so thats why I couldn't get it to work! How did you work this out
btw? The qooxdoo docs are quite sparse, mostly just a list of
attributes and methods. Did you read their source to work this out, or
is there some magic approach to intuiting this sort of thing?

I've added a qxwidget to the registry page now, and the little regedit
window can now be dragged around within that area of the page.

Cheers, Tridge
