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.

Download and Try For Yourself!

One of the main points of this contest was to encourage the development of donationware software. On behalf of the authors we invite you to download and use these programs. If you find them useful, will you please consider making a donation to the authors to support their continued development?

Pandemic To-do List

Pandemic List
A self-customizing to-do list

The problem that I had was that not every program has a to-do list, furthermore, I was working on a project that consisted of multiple sub-projects using different IDEs, and I would use a to-do list in one, and then switch to the other app and i lost track of all my items.

My solution was to create a self-customized todo list. There are 4 different views for the todo list, my most recent view I added today was the TrayIcon popup view.
When you switch applications and a new todo item happens, the tray icon animates.
