#447 Star info: hyperlink to VSX entry for object vs including all info in dialog

David Benn

Brad Walter made this suggestion in the May 2014 CHOICE course week 1 AID topic:

"It also looks like VStar is using all of the Alias information from VSX as well. Try entering HD39801 for example and you get the light curve for Betelgeuse as well.
That brings up something that I think would be helpful. When you access info for the star, it brings up a lot of the information from VSX but doesn't bring up the aliases. I think it would be helpful to access the alias info as well either as part of the info or as a separate button if that is easier."

One approach would be to add a hyperlink to the info dialog to the object's VSX page, rather than duplicating what VSX says in VStar.
