Thank you for your answer. By the way, the pictures at the beginning of the discussion were made with another program (this one).

Yes, it would be nice. But not so easy to do. And I am not sure that someone would really use it.  :)

There are other fonts available in images/coordinates. One can replace alagard with another font name in this line:

--- Code: Pascal  [+][-]window.onload = function(){var x1 = document.getElementById("main_content_section"); if (x1) { var x = document.getElementsByClassName("geshi");for (var i = 0; i < x.length; i++) { x[i].style.maxHeight='none'; x[i].style.height = Math.min(x[i].clientHeight+15,306)+'px'; x[i].style.resize = "vertical";}};} ---LCoordinates := TBGRABitmap.Create('gui/images/coordinates/alagard/coord.png');
[roland@localhost gui]$ find . -name "coord.png"
[roland@localhost gui]$

Yesterday night I remade the GUI from beginning. I hope it is a little better now.  :)




The final (?) version of that project is available. Now the two search engines are called in separate threads (using two different buttons). I finished the translations (French, German) and tried to make a clean documentation. Thanks to wp and to other members for their help on translation system (and on German language).  :)
