This is my first article on codeproject where i have been learning all the things from 3-4 years so kindly pardon me in advance for errors and mistakes i will encounter during this article .Cloud Cab is an Online Cab information service provider specially for airlines travelers with various add on option Web application which will used the cloud vendor-Windows Azure.As Cab is an important source during the journey hassle to and from airport so this Application will solve the need of planning and estimation in seconds.Users can search and choose the cab providers and then book their seats for the required day and time. This is just a brief introduction some ideas will be posted in future versions of this article.


The idea came in my mind During a trip when one of my friend unable to reach airport on time due to sudden defects in his car and by the time the cab came (which he got after trying so many cab service providers) his flight was already left.So in a situation like this cloud cab can be quite useful as users can see the status of availability of cabs online and then if they face any troubles they can call and book the cab quickly and easily.

Using the code  

Some codes snippets ....

For Finding out fare price(rough estimation but actual will be based on cab providers prices)

 public void findfare(object sender, EventArgs e)
double calc = 0;
        string s = TextBox2.Text;
        if (TextBox2.Text == "")
            calc = 0;
            double waittime = Convert.ToDouble(TextBox2.Text);
            calc = waittime * 1;
        double dis = Convert.ToDouble(TextBox1.Text);
        double cal;
        if (dis > 1)
            cal = calc + 15 + ((dis - 1) * 13);
            cal = calc + (dis * 15);

        Label1.Text = "Calculated Fare: Rs. " + cr.GetFare(Convert.ToDouble(TextBox1.Text), calc).ToString()+"/-only";
        TextBox1.Text = "";
        TextBox2.Text = "";

i have written some codes on search and find options as well but i will post about them in future versions,
