I wasn’t yet satisfied with the previous application, so i made multiple changes to it. The program now allows you to edit the entire text file, rather than just instert a line. Also, it now contains three different text files, rather than just one.
I added keyboard shortcuts, but I realized too late (that is, just now) that making the ENTER key save the file means that you can’t go to a new line.
I’ll undo that later, (EDIT: Fixed, ENTER key now makes a new line), but for the time being I’m content with my very first program. If, for some strange reason, you want to download it, you can do so from the Projects page.
For my first solo project, I started out small – I decided to slightly test out how Windows Forms and FileStreams work out. I also learned how to compile programs. The app is very simple, allowing you to input text, wipe the stored text, or view the text (unfortunately the text is displayed in a MessageBox.. I might make a few revisions in the future).
In truth, I only made this program to exercise the use of FileStreams, as saving data is something I wished to learn ASAP.
Hopefully, I now have enough knowledge to make a simple Hangman game, where the goal is to guess a randomly-selected word from a randomly-selected category. I might still need to touch up on collecting and storing data, however.
That’s all for now. Thank you for reading my first blog post!
