|The "To-Do List" applet (version 0.1) in action|
Instructions for use
To use the ToDoList applet, just enter an "item" in the "New To-Do Item" text field, then press the "Add to List" button. If the database is not full, the date/time of your entry will appear at the bottom of the to-do list.
Any time you want to update the list, simply click the "Refresh" button.
In all cases, the "Status" field will display the status of the last request you made.
This applet is for demonstration purposes only, and certainly leaves room for improvement. However, if you're interested in this approach, we hope you can use this applet to help get you started in the right direction.
