I know the Spry team has been quiet with the new stuff
lately, but we have a new widget for you all.
They Ratings Widget is now live in the Spry Preview:
http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/spry/preview/ Give it a whirl and let us know what you think.
Preview are things we think are done, but we want to give you
a chance to comment before we put it into the real zip.
Feedback is welcome.

I'm really let down by how crappy the documentation is for
the star rating widget. I have scoured the Internet and given the
code to multiple LAMP developers with no success on how to send the
rating to a MySQL server (or any server for that). It's really sad
that people are getting paid to developer completely useless
widgets. It might be the fanciest widget in the world but with no
docuementation it's pretty much useless and a waste of Adobe's
efforts and money. I have lowered my expectations of Adobe after
racking my brain trying to get the spy rating widget to post data
(or get) to my SQL server.
My recommendation... don't waste your time with
*NOBODY* understand the use of the widget. I've been
developing LAMP applications for easily 6 or 7 years now and I
can't decipher your code. I have found an plethora of posts in your
forum, Yahoo and Google of people trying to run Spry Rating. You
have created a worthless widget. I'm sure a great deal of effort
went into creating this worthless widget also. Every time I
purchase an Adobe app I have to fund your pathetic development
efforts. If you're going to write an app make the instructions so
that someone can actually use it. Whey don't you see if any
developer outside of your little SPRY team can actually send
results to a SQL server using your crappy app. I can't make it
work. That's sad.
rathoz1 why are you being so malicious? This guy is clearly
trying to help you out and give you a nice widget, incase you didnt
notice it is a
PREVIEW Meaning it is still in development and documentation
may not be finished yet, meaning there may be a few bugs, meaning
the creators may appreciate some feedback instead of abuse. If you
are an experienced developer and think it is crap, simple make your
own and stop insulting somone who is trying to help you out. Theese
people have created many great and wonderful widgets so lay-off
them. Good work with the SPRY so far Donald, Keep it up.

Using the built in ajax submit:
http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/spry/samples/rating/RatingSample_wi th_Observers.html This uses the following option to automatically send the
selected value to a server:
id is the name of the rating form field and val is the value
that was selected by the user. Hopefully it'll be easy to take the
query string parameter and update/insert the selected rating.
Please be aware that Arnout is not Abode and he did not
create Spry, so your use of "you" and "your" should not be directed
at him. If you have any requests bugs (even documentation "bugs")
do let Adobe know directly:

I have to agree, more code would be nice, having to look at
to figure out which part is a particular example can be
Spry is still young, with the help of the community it should
it needs more attention.
