***** AISS (available on OS4 Depot) is required to use this program *****

"OWB Address Book" is another one of my 'bloated' programs that I made with
Hollywood 4.7. I hope you enjoy it!

Installation: Simply copy the OWBAddressBook drawer into your main OWB drawer
and configure the OWB tooltype if necessary.
NOTE: If you want to keep your addresses from a previous install, do not
overwrite the "Addresses" text file.

The Address Book window has three display buttons, six control buttons, and up
to 250 address link buttons. The AddAddress Button adds the URL that is
currently being used by the browser to the list of links. The RemoveAddress
Button is used to delete any of the Link or Group buttons. The AddGroup Button
creates a new group heading and adds a dummy sub-group link that can be
configured or just deleted. The Hand Button is used to arrange the links and
groups in the list by dragging and dropping (holding down the left mouse button
and releasing). The Preferences Button allows the user to adjust the general
preferences for the Address Book or the Quick Links window. This button can also
be used to start the Window Prefs program, which is a hollow frame window that
can be placed and sized however the user wants, and when it is closed, this
becomes the new placement and size of the desired window (either the Address
Book or the Quick Links window). The last button on the right of the Address
Book window is used to launch or close the Quick Links window. A blank link
button can be configured by clicking on it and entering the desired URL into the
Requester. In order to change the URL or the title of a link button, just
right-click it and choose one of the options. (This is also how group buttons
are renamed.)

The view can be switched between a display of the address book and a display of
the history using the buttons in the upper left corner. Clicking the Search
button will reveal or hide the special search display. If you want to add a new
custom search to the list, just add a new line to the "LookUpList" in the
following format: <Name>=<URL> (inserting "[STRING]" at the appropriate place in
the URL). There are seven pre-configured examples in the included LookUpList
that demonstrate how this is done. The Time and Date display prefs can be
adjusted with a text editor ("TDPrefs"---"1"=True and "0"=False), but its size
and placement can be adjusted also with the mouse (by dragging and dropping).

The QuickLinks window can be configured through "QuickLinkPrefs" and the
graphical links themselves are configured through the "QuickLinks" text file, in
which you can define the AISS image to be used, the web address for the link,
and any subtitle text that you might want to add. The order used in the
QuickLinks configuration is quicklink number followed by a "|" symbol, then the
name of the AISS image to be used followed by an "=" sign, then the web address
(URL) to be used by this button. If you want to have subtitle text under the
image, you can enter it after the URL, separated by the "|" symbol. (The sample
"QuickLinks" file shows how all this works.) If you want to use a text title for
the button instead of an AISS image, simply put the desired text inside
quotation marks in the position where the AISS image name would be (again, see
the included "QuickLinks" file for an example of this). In this file, you will
also notice that after the listing of Links, there is a line with the following
text: "***Custom Alignment***". This line is followed by a custom arrangement of
the Quick Link buttons. Any arrangment of these buttons in rows and columns can
be made here by using the link number separated by the "|" symbol. This custom
alignment will only be used if the "Custom" alignment option is selected in the
QuickLinkPrefs (the other options are Horizontal and Vertical). Please do NOT
delete the custom alignment information even if you do not plan on using it (you
might want to use it sometime in the future).

Special thanks to:
*Joerg and Andrea for their efforts in bringing OWB to OS4.
*Mason for his AISS artwork and icons.
*Raziel for his beta-testing and suggestions.

Version 5.5 (8/30/10):
*Fixed some bugs that showed up with AISS 4.10.

Version 5.4 (7/13/10):
*Fixed another bug reported by Raziel.

Version 5.3 (7/6/10):
*Fixed a couple bugs reported by Raziel.

Version 5.2 (4/29/10):
*Fixed a problem with the accessing of local files (reported by pvanni).

Version 5.1 (4/24/10):
*Fixed the hint placement for the bottom buttons.
*Improved the scrollbar control.
*A number of other "under-the-hood" improvements.

Version 5.0 (2/13/10):
*Changed the layout of the buttons (suggested by Raziel).
*Fixed a few other bugs related to the preferences.

Version 4.9 (1/15/10):
*Made some adjustments for AISS 4.7
*The "Address Book" and "Quick Links" windows open in the correct place and size
right at the start.
*The "Address Book" and "Quick Links" windows can now be iconified.
*The file "WinPrefs" is no longer needed, because its functionality is wrapped
up in the one executable.
*If the "Quick Links" window is used without the title bar, it can now be
dragged around by any of its borders.
*Fixed a bug that would sometimes crash the Address Book.
*Fixed a few graphical glitches.

Version 4.8 (12/30/09):
*Fixed another issue with the Preferences.

Version 4.7 (12/30/09):
*Fixed an issue with the Preferences.

Version 4.6 (8/30/09):
*Expanded the Preferences with more options (including the ability to change the
font colors).
*The quick-links program is now a part of the main address book executable. So
you no longer need the file called "QuickLinkBook" but you still need the files
"QuickLinks" and "QuickLinkPrefs".
*A couple of other graphical changes.

Version 4.5 (8/13/09):
*Fixed yet another graphical glitch---reported by H. Maier (Raziel).
*Added the option to remove the URL from the link button---but still showing it
as a hint.
*Now the AddressBook closes itself when OWB has been quit.
