The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Well, you begged and pleaded until finally it was easier to sit down and crank out some code than keep hitting the “Delete” button. 🙂

I’m pleased to announce that Dapper now supports drop-down boxes (<SELECT> elements) as input variables. Now when you create a new Dapp and check off “Use as input variable” under a drop-down box, this variable will show up as a drop-down on the Dapp’s “how to use” page. For instance, here’s a Dapp for the Babelfish translation engine:

This seemingly trivial change has involved a lot of code redesign under the hood that will make it easier to add support for other types of form fields, such as radio boxes and checkboxes, which we’ll introduce in the near future.

Check it out and let us know what you think. We depend heavily on your feedback to determine where to focus our efforts, so please continue to let us know of any problems you encounter or any new features you’d like to see. The squeaky wheel gets the grease!

Peace out,
~Tony
