           Summary: [Chameleon] Widget Path Parameters "Relative to What?"
           Product: Chameleon

          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 2000

Golden Widget Rule #7: bug 97 comment 3

Widget Parameters that deal with paths should always be relative to the template
the user is building. eg. "./images/icon_*.png Otherwise if it is an image that
is found under the chameleon application eg /htdocs/images/icon_*.png this
should be a url. This is even if it is on the same server. To many times the
image path causes the biggest confusion for users, and varies greatly from
widget to widget is located....

I am expecting a stink about the above comment from the developers, but I only
wish to get feed back on this major limitation to the usability of this
technology. Thanks
