Version 1.0.1.1 is available. This version requires the uninstall of the previous version (v1.0.0.9) and manual install of the new version. The reason for this is that I changed some code in the methods that check for an available update and download an available file. You will be able to update to v1.0.1.2 and later version from the program's Update menu item.

Because you're supposed to write to the AppData folder.  That's for security reasons, so that what's in the program files folder is only what you install, and that it can be locked down for UAC

Ah, I figured it must be a User Access Control thing. I guess to prevent any other program from writing to your application directory, it also has to prevent your app itself...

Looking good, Stephen  thumbs up

Version 1.0.0.9 is available. Be alerted that it isn't compatible with prayer files created using earlier versions.

Improvements added in this version include:

  • fixed cosmetic bug wherein temp form that shows article text was seen in taskbar
  • fixed bug in buildTrackingFile() that caused UI to look all funky after method execution
  • added contextMenuStrip to the textBox made by method showTextInDialogFormTextbox(), so that user can send article to his printer
  • added application logging to "pminderLog.txt" in the AppData directory
  • I've completely gotten rid of the text-based prayerInfo tracking system, and am using a serialized class now.
  • Download of updated installer is now asynchronous, allowing examination of the rest of the About dialog while you wait.

I was painfully reminded of a .NET irritation: your program cannot write to the application directory. Silly: why not? Grrr...

Hmm, I tried hollowlife's renaming, downloaded the file, but wasn't able to open it:

So basically, all you need is the print functionality added to the current richtextbox?

Yeah. I'd like either a user-defined control that can sit in my Toolbox and be dragged onto a Form for use, or (b) a custom class inheriting from RichTextBox that extends it, such that I can do the following:

clsExtendedRtbCtrl obj = new clsExtendedRtbCtrl();
obj.LoadFile(filepath, RichTextBoxStreamType.RichText);
obj.Print();

and, with those three lines, you get the print preview, and the ability to click OK on the print preview pane and send the RichText document to the printer. It should print any rich-text properly (italics, bold, underline, etc.), do word-wrap correctly, and print the entire contents of the rich textbox, even if it takes multiple pages.

Hmm, thank you for that link, hollowlife; it appears worthy of study...

Thanks, lotus.  There are lots of useful articles such as that one. But all are quite involved. I just can't believe that someone hasn't made a simple drop-in custom control such that, if the Rich Text Box contains text, you can just invoke Print() to print all the text it contains.

I've figured out a way to print simple text files in their entirety, but I'm not finding a pre-made free control for doing the same with RichTextBox. There's plenty of code samples for rolling-your-own.
1590  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2012 / NANY 2012 Request on: December 12, 2011, 07:20:05 AM
Not really an app request, but rather a component request, and perhaps there's a free version of this out there in cyberspace somewhere, but if so I haven't come across it:

I would like a custom control that I can add to my Visual C# Express toolbox. It should inherit from RichTextBox, but should be able to LoadFile() just like a RichTextBox (plain or RTB format), and should have a Print() method that prints the entire contents of the custom Rich TextBox.

Printing is abominably arcane in .NET!  Grrr...

v1.0.0.8 is released! Please update using the Update button from the program's About dialog to download the installer for the updated version (no need to uninstall previous version: the installer will overwrite it, and any application data will be preserved).

See OP for additional features that have been added. At some point I'll be doing (hopefully) a video showing how the rebuilt Search feature is most robust/powerful.

@techidave: both your requests have been fulfilled. Here's a screenshot of the Search results. You can scroll through the results ListBox to view pertinent data associated with the selected prayer file. You can double-click the item to Load the prayer for further editing:

alternate fore-/back-color scheme:

That is a really useful application!

Okay, techidave and several others who have emailed me via the program's email button in the About dialog, thanks for your patience. The next version is almost ready for download. I just need to tie some code into the SelectedIndexChanged event of the lstSearchResults ListBox, so that as you scroll through entries, you'll be presented with filename, tags, author. Should be back sometime tomorrow with an announcement that it's okay to update to the newest version.

Okay, I've fulfilled both your feature requests, techidave. Now I've only to re-work the Search algorithm, and I'll be ready with v1.0.0.7. Best estimate is that it'll get uploaded in the next few hours, though possibly not until sometime Sunday.

Looks very cool, Lotus! Some humorous stuff in there cheesy

That looks fantastically useful!

Haven't uploaded the fix yet. Will probably have next version uploaded (and announced) either today or tomorrow.

I've fixed the first: you can now name your own files; I'll also be providing your second wish, such that you'll be able to scroll through a listing of all saved prayer files, and see, at a glance, the filename, author, tags associated with the file currently highlighted in a listbox.

instead of saving with date and title, let it default to whatever the title of the prayer is.  Come tomorrow, I won't be able to tell by the file name, what the prayer concern is.

@techidave: Yeah, I get your drift.  The reason the files are auto-named based upon the date-time, rather than prompting the user with a SaveFileDialog, is that it will make it very easy later to implement a search-by-date function. The "Title" field (see screenshot) below, is meant to allow you to give a memorable title to the prayer.

But I think I see where I could make it more user-friendly: currently, when you click the Load button, you see this:

[attach]

What would be nicer is if you saw a list of the prayers you've saved, by their "Title" field:

[attach]

Am I understanding correctly?

is it possible to use the arrow keys to "scroll" through the list of concerns?  instead of actually having to 'load" each one.

I'll see what I can come up with... smiley

It's worth a download and a few runs just to see the various form background images (a random one of twenty gets chosen each time the program runs).  Some pretty cool images in there.
