A little memo pad that reminds me of important tasks

Sample Image - memopad.jpg


Recently, I have been very busy setting up a BCP site for my company. Since I have so many things that needs to be done at one time, I decided to quickly put together a little program that can reminds me of important tasks.

What do I need

  • A memo pad that I can always see it.
  • It should not block my sight when I want to work with other windows.
  • I can cross out finished tasks.
  • I can reorder tasks.

How it works

  • It will stay on top of other windows when it contains focus.
  • It will become transparent and shink when it loses focus.
  • When an item is checked, it will be crossed out and will not be saved.
  • It supports drag-and-drop item reordering.


Simply modify the application configuration file, MemoPad.exe.config.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <add key="Shrink" value="true" />
    <add key="ActiveOpacity" value="100" />
    <add key="DeactiveOpacity" value="50" />
    <add key="MemoX" value="911" />
    <add key="MemoY" value="96" />
    <add key="MemoW" value="280" />
    <add key="MemoH" value="328" />


This is the first time I post something here and I hope you find it usual too.
