FarrCfx Starts to Take Shape

I've had a bit of a break from the main ContactFX application to get my head around Vitaly's FARR C# Plugin SDK, which has meant navigating around a new language: It's been fun (once the penny dropped with the SDK).

FARR will be providing Desktop integration including searching contacts, adding contacts and other actions with the contact data (emails, maps, urls, etc). So I wanted to at least get a bare bone working, just to relieve the nerves &#59;)

This is not what the final FARRCfx will look like, but just my initial foray to get a link between ContactFX data and FARRCfx:
FARRCfx Menu
FARRCfx Menu

Display Contact
FARRCfx Contact Card

FARRCfx will display ContactFX data in the FARR HTML window. Each card will be displayed using HTML in a format similar to how they are designed in the main application: i.e. each card can be unique with it's own layout, sorting order, TABS, sections and colours, etc.

The HTML will have the usual functionality that will include: mailto links; hyper-links to webpages, maps, etc; micro-format integration including hCard, XFN, hCalendar, etc.

This will be the same format that will be used for HTML Export (for storing on a USB for example).

Scribbly is derived from the common name of one of the 10 Eucalypts that have insect trails (scribbles) in the bark. Eucalyptus haemastoma is a dominant species where I live and is commonly known as "Scribbly Gum".

The scribbles on the bark of these magnificent trees often reminded me of the journey of many of my projects: somewhat random, but beautiful in the end.
