woohoo. I'm excited that there is still momentum behind a mac ui. Do you
have an HTML control that you can use for rendering? If so, there are a
complete set of filters to output html as rendertext from a module.

Have a look at swmgr. But I believe you can do something like:
mgr = new SWMgr(new MarkupFilterMgr(FMT_HTMLHREF));
when creating your swmgr. All modules from that swmgr will output
rendertext as html with links.

module->terminateSearch = true;
If you set this variable (presumably from another thread), then the search
should terminate prematurely and return the entries found thus far.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can help at all, in any way.
