Desktop Coral - Clever conceptThe other day we wrote about a nifty Yahoo widget called Informer that's an extremely customizable toolbar. One of the commenters, "Change", was wondering whether there's a way to reserve the screen space associated with toolbar like Informer so that other applications won't cover it up.. I spent a few minutes searching on the Internet before coming up with the free DesktopCoral.. I have to admit that this is quite a clever concept, and there are a variety of reasons where it could be useful.
THE 2006 DONATIONCODER.COM C++ BUILDER DONATIONWARE PROGRAMMING CONTEST RESULTS
About C++ Builder
We are huge fans of Borland's C++ Builder here at DonationCoder.com. It's used in many of our more elaborate windows programs, and it's one of the most powerful tools for C++ programmers that want to do rapid development of rich Windows GUI applications.
About Judging The Results
There were many excellent submissions to the contest, and choosing winners was difficult and several of the decisions could honestly have gone either way. Judging was based on a number of criteria including completeness, documentation, polish, the existence of alternative free tools, the possibilities of improvement, the estimated difficulty of implementation, the usefulness/fun of the entry, and more. We categorized entries as described on our contest rules page, in order to ensure some diversity, but also awarded prizes to individual coders based on multiple entries.
