[Chameleon] Locate Lookup

Hi List,

I've been playing with the locate widget and was wondering if it could 
be changed to lookup table records in a dbf.  As I understand, the 
locate widget currently looks through a gazetteer and returns the 
appropriate values.  I would like to have an input box for the user to 
input a street and return the result on the map display.  I've looked 
through the threads and have found some good bits and pieces but I just 
can't seem to completely understand, due to some limitations of being a 
beginner at PHP language.  (If anybody has any good sites for PHP 
tutorials, can you please let me know)

Can anyone help me find a way to alter the PHP code in the Locate 
Widget to allow it to search through my local data?
