My LookUP Widget

It is now possible to use the astronomy lookUP service on a remote website using the lookUP widget. The widget is still in a testing stage so please keep in mind that it may change as bugs are found and improvements made. To try it out, follow these steps:

  1. Add the Javascript code to your page header e.g.
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.strudel.org.uk/lookUP/widget.js"></script>
  2. Place a div tag in your page to hold the contents of the widget. e.g.
    <div id="lookUP">My LookUP Widget</div>
    You can replace the "My LookUP Widget" text with whatever you want to appear before the search box.
  3. Optionally, you can style the search box and the results using CSS on your site. All the lookUP content is held within the element #lookUP and the search results are within the sub element named #lookUPresults. So, the styling could be e.g.
    #lookUP {
    	float: right;
    	border: 1px solid #bbb;
    	background-color: #ddd;
    	padding:0.5em;
    	margin: 0 0 0.5em 0.5em;
    	text-align: center;
    }
    #lookUPresults img {
    	width:90%;
    	border:1px solid #bbb;
    }
