RIVA Web Image Widget support thoughts/questions for post-3.1
#1
Dean,

Brian and I have been brainstorming about this for the iPhone/iPod. In the advanced protocol at least, could you simply pass a structure with a URL and dimension? The iphone SDK has a native object for embedding web content in app. Any reason a similar approach wouldn't also work for a full-blown web widget?

For the web image widget, I assumed it would be like the others except that you wouldn't come to the server to get it, you'd just go get it yourself, and it would be cached like the other images. So requests to draw it would include the URL as the identifier like the repo and media images have theirs, and it would work just like those except how it's retrieved.

thanks Dean, sounds perfect.

we could probably replicate the existing IV quirky functionality for the full blown web widget, ie have it float above everything else in the regular canvas, if you ever wanted to add that to the protocol.

LOL! Are we calling that a "feature" now? :-)
