Idea: Random activity program for windows

(1/4) > >>

stonedofmoo:
Hi all

I've been trying to find a program for windows that makes decisions for me and my wife from a pre-determined list of activities we wish to write. Without going into detail we've been married a while and it's for bringing some excitement and spice to our life :-)

What we'd love is a program that randomly picks from programmed selections for us. It needs to be full screen or large window 1080p, adaptable so we can easily write the contents without being a coder, and ideally each screen needs to allow us to apply a JPEG picture for each randomly displayed choice because as is said, a picture paints a thousand words.

I guess what I'm looking for is this. Firstly I put a basic flowchart together and attached it to this post.

1st screen title page with customisable text and pic. OK button to continue

2nd screen choice between 2 options, in this case our names, customisable text and pic for each choice so a pic of us and our name. You either select me or her by clicking our picture or name, OR press a 'random' button and the app chooses one of us (and therefore the flowchart path). The result of the choice is highlighted and then pressing OK advances you to screen 3

3rd screen another choice between 2 options. Customisable text and pic for each choice so a pic of us and our choice text. You make the choice between the two options by clicking on that picture/text and that moves you onto the next screen (and path)

4th screen choose between another 2 options. Customisable text and pic for each choice so a pic of us and our choice text. You make the choice between the two options by clicking on that picture/text and that moves you onto that path and the next screen where you get a random activity from the flowchat path you just picked.

5th screen is where you press a button to randomly select an activity from a list that can be pre-programmed somehow. The selection would only come from the path you selected with your earlier choices.
For the list of random activities this could be from an excel spreadsheet in the app folder or whatever else would work for the designer. My only requirements would be the text we type as activities and is displayed when the app is running is easy and clear to read, and each activity allows us to display at least one picture such as JPEG from a local folder location.

There would also be a button here to either continue by randomly picking another activity or starting again at step 2, or exiting the program

Does any of this sound feasible? It sounds easy in my head, but I wouldn't know :-)

Regards

This sounds like it might be an excellent candidate for a coder to take on for our NANY 2017 event..

I really like the idea of a generic tool that lets you design a create an arbitrary "flowchart", where each item has an image and text, and then walks you through the process of choosing a path through it.

If no one else codes it, I might.

stonedofmoo:
Yes it has many uses :-)
The key I think is getting the random bit right when the app selects an activity from your predefined list.

stonedofmoo:
No takers?  :(

Have patience.. I suggest you post a link to this thread in the NANY 2017 idea thread: http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=42977.0
