Suggestion: Allow specifying ad-hoc .cxml url

Jan 3, 2011 at 10:25 PM

One nice feature would be to allow users to specify a url to a collection file either hosted in SharePoint or another site altogether.  For example, a user may want to generate collections using another method and show them in a SharePoint site.  Or they may want to use one of the demo collections available online, such as netflix.  By allowing users to choose 'Url' in the collection type drop down and enter an ad-hoc url, the web part may be used with SharePoint and non-SharePoint collections.  Again, great work- thanks for this project.
