    Bible Flash Cards

    I wanted to share with everyone what I have been working on. Problems which have been solved with the help of the thinbasic team (at least a couple of other threads recently) are no longer a problem. The program is far from done, but all the features I wanted in it to start out are here. I just need to add more flash cards. As it is, this version has 154 cards.

    I don't have the source code on this computer. If anyone would like to see it, just let me know.

    Nice GUI Mark,

    I like it, maybe you could just remove WS_MAXIMIZEBOX.

    Where do you mean? The actual flash cards?

    Now, if you mean the actual flash cards, a picture for each card. That would be a daunting task. I already have 154 cards and I have ideas for thousands more. I also have the idea of having sound with each card, like a reading of the verse. I or someone with a cool voice wouldn't have to physically read most of it because I have this version of the Bible on CD, but it would still be a lot of work.

    But, if you mean just dressing up the GUI a little to make it look nicer ... sure.

    My brother reminded me of an idea I had a while back. I would like to further design the GUI to look like a stack of idex cards or one index card ... or at least something resembling flash cards. There's a way to design a window from a bmp. I saw the topic a while back. I will first research that.

    I first searched and couldn't find any reference to WS_MAXIMIZEBOX in my source. It took me a while and some trial and error. But, the culprit was WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW. After I took him out and got all the punctuation in the right place, everything looks great. Thanks for the tip.

    I played around with the module. Computer speech just isn't there yet. Unless ... y'all know something I don't know. About a year ago I tried a computerized singing voice ... that was just as bad even though people were proclaiming how life like it was ... UGH!

    When my wife heard Microsoft Sam, she said, "No one will be learning from your flash cards. They will be laughing at the voice."

    No, I think I would rather do the extra work and do the voices myself. :P

    Ok, if the speech module isnt upto what you want then how about the TBASS module that could be used to play mp3's.

    @Zak, using the graphics is not a problem, Mark could use the GDI routines to paste them around his window

    Yeah, both of those things. Although I think I will take a break from adding bells and whistles for a while. When I am ready, I am sure I will need the team's help at some point or another. Thanks for the suggestions.

    @Zak - The artistic ornaments you refer to remind me of a time when everything had a little class, especially hand written notes or letters. Kinda like a Victorian style. Now, the question is ... Where can I get my hands on a wax seal?

    I wouldn't have thought about putting any artistic ornaments like that in the program. The suggestion certainly adds options. Thanks.
