After installing the Simple HTML Popup Widget into your own web site, simply press a button to activate address finder - enter postcode - select address - and the software fills in the appropriate information into Web Page.
Ideal for web sites when you cannot use scripting code, as only requires a simple HTML line added to the page, to provide Postcode Address Finder popup.
If you require web integration,
we strongly recommend you look at the AJAX
Address Finder, (Full Address Postcode Finder or UK Street Finder), which will run on most servers. It
is quick and easy to add Postcode Address Finder to any web page, it
uses AJAX so is not stopped by pop-up blockers and has
little impact on your web site design.
Simply enter postcode - select address - and the Postcode Address Finder Software fills the appropriate FULL Address details into your favourite Microsoft product, CRM system or Accounts application. The system may also be added to your own web site, giving your customers a better shopping experience.
Please note : This demonstration uses demonstration data
unlike the live system

Due to security restrictions imposed by web browsers, fields on a web page can only be updated from the same web domain. The Address Lookup popup, after successful address selection, must:
To the user it will simply seem as if the address is written back to the original page they started on, they probably will not notice this going on in the background.
If after selecting the address the popup page gives an error, or performance is low, then we simply add a basic page, which is used instead for the calling page, to process the update of the address fields.
Create a dummy page on your web site, which is blank, but contains the same button code as the calling page. Call it GhostPage1.html, for example:
New page called:GhostPage1.html
Then Enter the button set-up wizard again
Enter "GhostPage1.html" in "Ghost Page" setting on first page of wizard. Now step through wizard and finally press Finish button to commit changes
Refresh calling page f5
