This application was written to allow me to cook a roast dinner without any stress and to make sure I got all the timings correct for when each different food item needed to be started.
The UI starts out with the class
MainForm. This class is the main window of the application and contains a
StatusStrip and a
DateTimePicker to select the time to serve the dinner. It also contains a
ComboBox to allow selection of different meals to view. The main
DataGrid contains the list of steps that need to be taken to make the meal.
I use two
Timer classes, one for updating the current time display and the other for calculating when an action is due (not working yet).
AppVersion object has functions that return the current version number of the application (including its alpha/beta status).
This project contains some classes that I use in all of my projects.
It has a
CommonFunctions class which contains some general functions to get information about the environment.
PreferencesXml object allows application preferences to be stored in an XML file and re-loaded when an application is started.
FontHandler object is still under development but will allow me to load fonts from an embedded resource file and use them in the UI.
Points of Interest
Mono 188.8.131.52 (the version I have running on my eeePc does not support
StatusBar.Name properties. I have to comment these out when I compile so that it will run on my eeePc.
I also have to change the construction of the
this.mainMenu1 = new System.Windows.Forms.MainMenu(this.components);
this.mainMenu1 = new System.Windows.Forms.MainMenu();
... as mono 184.108.40.206 will throw a missing method exception.
These are the only two changes I have to make to get it running on mono on my eeePc. If I can get mono 1.2.6 installed on the eee, then I should not have to change these two items as it will run with the above two things unchanged when I execute the app on my Windows box under mono 1.2.6.
