PRG 240 - Class #3 Lecture
Introduction to the class mailing list.
Please subscribe by next week.
Finish reviewing the code for Advanced Vision and Beyond project
at the end of Ch. 2. See our last lecture page for the items to discuss.
Discuss VB Auto Center on p. 92
- Did it help to purposefully design the interface for VB Auto Center?
- What are the main objects that are necessary in VB Auto Center?
- Spend up to an hour of class time debugging your homework copy of VB Auto
- parent (MDI) form
- splash screen
- child forms
- video inventory
- how does a user "get to" this form from frmMain?
- customer records
Any general questions about VB Auto Center? Where could a popup menu be added?
Review Ch. 2 Notes. Discuss and demonstrate
the image box, toolbar, status bar, listview, treeview, and tabbed dialog box
Any questions with the Add methods for the TreeView Nodes collection, the ListView
Items collection and the ListView Item's Subitems collection?
- Subscribe to the class mailing list
- Debug the VB Auto Center case study on p. 92. You will have to create
your own fictitious data for the ListView on the Auto Inventory form. Add
a simple popup (shortcut) menu. This project will be due on a floppy disk
on Mar. 12 as a graded programming assignment.
The code should also be printed out and stapled when you hand it in.
- You will have an open book quiz next week where you have to create
a MDI project with a parent form and two child forms. The parent form must
contain a File menu with View Form1 and View Form2 commands that allow the
user to view each form. Each form should have an Exit command button that
allows the user to close that form. The File menu should also have an Exit
command that properly allows the project to exit. (This quiz is modeled on
Programming Exercise 2.3 on p. 91.)
- Read Ch. 3 pages 94-132. Take the time to follow the textbook's "Step
by Step" tutorials on pages 103+, 108+, 111+, 114+, and 121+ even though
these examples can already be found on your Student CD-ROM. Note that you
may need to interchange Step 6 and Step 5 on p. 104 as well as Steps 4 &
5 in the middle of p. 122.
