I thought this one was going to be easy. Sure, instantiating an HTMLEditor control and passing it off as the graphic in the ListCell does the trick. When the user does some text formatting is where the problems lie.

Once editing in the ListView is activated, try clicking on any formatting buttons of the HTMLEditor and you will find out that nothing happens. You cannot even see the buttons getting clicked. Once you click on them, it looks like the focus is lost as the toolbar gets a shaded effect like its focus is lost.

This was a pain but I found out later on that the EventHandlers in those buttons act like somehow they had been removed.

What I did was to get references to the toolbars of the HTMLEditor, loop through each toolbar button and add an EventHandler.

Check out this code.

Notice that instead of using .tool-bar for the lookup keyword, ToolBar is used. The toolbars in the HTMLEditor are made up of 2 toolbars so getting a reference to those 2 is very important so we can add an EventHandler to each of the toolbar buttons.

I also included an if statement that only adds the EventHandler if the child node encountered is a class that is of the Button type.

There. By adding that code, when you use an HTMLEditor control as a control representing part of a ListCell graphic, the buttons in those toolbars should work the way they are supposed to when mouse clicked.

Well, I like using proxies because it can hide my identity. But a way to allow users to view websites in different geographic locations? Now that, is even better!

I am talking about my personal reason for using this. However, this feature can be useful to others like, say, media agencies for examples. They can monitor their own campaigns effectively because they will be able to see their local competition and make smarter decisions in the process that will benefit them.

Advertisers can greatly take advantage of this tool in order to boost inventory value, improve efficiency and have new possible prospects.

Bloggers can make use of this feature to reach the right readers based on location thereby increasing regional value a hundredfold.

These features can be accessed and managed straight from a toolbar by GeoSurf. The toolbar itself is attached to the browser so users can easily monitor campaigns and target geo specific locations in just a few clicks.

Now that is pretty much intuitive if you ask me. The simpler the better. I never like using complex tools and even more so use features that require me to do activate them in many steps.

Using these has a catch. It is not free. The proxy toolbar is pretty powerful so it is understandable that using these features to benefit your cause can come with a price. However, the price is not that expensive plus they offer a free trial so you can check out how it works and get a short glimpse on how it can help you with your business.

Still, it all boils down to the proxy service and how useful it is. Users can track data without even being tracked themselves due to using a secure, reliable connection. Surf locally without being local. Visit http://www.geosurf.com/.

You might say that this is just another toolbar that can clutter your browser. Wait! That was what I felt at first but in actuality, you have to know if the toolbar actually does more good than bad. Knowing today that most, if not all users definitely uses Facebook, you might want to check out this Somoto Toolbar to enrich your Internet experience even more.

Its social network integration provides shortcuts to frequently accessed Facebook actions like status updates from friends, posting updates to walls and even share any website on Facebook. All from that toolbar.

And that is not all. Somoto made sure to include other well known social networking sites like Twitter and Google+. Great job guys, many sites still do not include Google+ in their system so I was actually happy when I found out Google+ is supported.

Twitter users can read latest tweets and update post to Twitter easily. Google+ and Blogspot users can also stay updated using the toolbar.

The toolbar is not a resource hogger. In fact, it feels like it’s not even in my computer because it really does eat only a small amount of memory. Knowing that social networking sites requires constant real time updates, one would think system resource is an issue.

Well, no. Try it. I am sure you will like it. You can visit their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Somoto-Toolbar/214895865267059 for more details too.
