           Summary: [Chameleon] Widget Golden Rules
           Product: Chameleon
           Version: 1.1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 2000
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: Widget

Talking with Norm here are some Rules that all Widgets should be able to handle,
or be configured to do. This will help in developing a standard development
widget standard. I realize that all these are separate bugs, but I wanted a
general discussion first to hammer it out. I will then create new individual
bugs form the results.

General Widget Rules:

1) All Widgets Should work/ display independent from other resources, widgets,
other scripts.

2) If an error occurs with one of the widgets the other widgets found in the
HTML template should still be loaded. Maybe there should be a setting for this
to allow the app to either stop loading once an error occurs vs. keep loading
until all widgets have been attempted to load. If there is a major mapserver,
mapfile error this should be treated separately. 

3) If a Widget is dependent on another widget/ resource, *.php file this should
be checked and message displayed if error occurs with respect to this issue.

4) If a widget needs curtain resources, widgets, other *.php files than this
should be found in the documentation.

5) Standardized CWC attributes between widgets example of this problem is the
compass point widget.

If you guys think of anything other rules, please add them.
