February 10 meeting--A potpourri of useful techniques

We'll meet Tuesday, February 10 at 7 PM. As usual, come as early as 6:30 and bring dinner, if you want.

Two members will present this month.

Alen Kalati will show two things:

First, a customizable toolbar. Alen explains: My application starts with a number of empty toolbar buttons which the user can then choose what they would do. The selection is done simply by right clicking the toolbar button while a form is open, which then it assigns it its 'click' method.

Second, a simple way of associating photos with inventory items using a bar code scanner. Again, a simple but very effective trick of doing this, which since has really revolutionized the way photos are associated with rugs in the rug industry.

Bob Pierce will talk about searching within a grid, integrating with filtering and sorting options.

We anticipate some time for open mike or questions at the end of the meeting, so if you have a little something to share, come prepared to do so.
