Amazon Explorer - Part 4

Finally I had time for a few updates on my Amazon Explorer. So what's new?

- Finally you can also get rid of items. Pressing the Delete or Backspace key will remove all selected items

- It is now possible to select more than one item by using the SHIFT key. Well, the usual way to do it in almost every application. But phew - this is more difficult than it looks. The selection itself is not a big deal, but then you have to do the same stuff to all element in that selection... Especially the dragging of multiple objects is a challenge.

- Pressing the "A" key will select all books. Unfortunately the CTRL-A version did not work. Looks like it's catched by the browser.

- You might notice that the search button changes to "More" after a successful search. Click it again and you will get the next 10 results.

What's next? I think I will improve the "Similarity" function. There will be a key which loads the "Books other people bought" for all selected items. This should create a nice network. I guess I also should add the information stuff soon. Well, that's so boring, so I was not in the mood for it yet. Then I will try to implement some scaling capabilities which looks like a challenge if it comes to groups of items. I hope I will be able to finish some of this before my holidays...
