Finished Programs / Done For the "BEVEL in YOU" Enjoy
« on: February 24, 2012, 05:48 PM »
A compact 3D picture Bevel Maker for all to enjoy. 41 kB in total size!

3D Bevel DC.jpg

The picture hopefully shows what the program does. Autonumbers and saves a beveled picture to BMP. Can be used for web pages, phot albumns, class rolls.

If people could leave a message of thanks and the countries that they come from. I'm really curious to see how far my programs reach.

I really like making very small programs. I hope that people like and appreciate my programs. I like sharing and helping people out.

In order for the program to work please make a folder called pics, as shown in the screen capture.

Regards and best wishes to all,

Now customised for Donation Coder.

Would be interested to see who downloads my program (ie, from which countries). Always wondered how far things travel.

I have created a capture program that captures regions/ sizes that you specify. All you do is resize the capture window and save to JPG or BMP. It also auto numbers the picture files. Enjoy my fellow members.

Now customised for Donation Coder

My program is a whole 23 kB in size. Nice and compact.

Have a look at the program I have made to make up your own wordlists. It's only 92 kB.


Coeluh ,

Hopefully the attached pictures describe the program.

I've had an idea for making a program that makes wordlists from web pages. I've added some more features like a wordsearch creator and an online google dictionary facility. Hope you like it.

What the program does:

You basically copy and article of the web or from a document on a topic you may be covering. My program splits up the words, gets rid of duplicates, and puts the word in alphabetical order. From there you can drag and drop a word list into MS Word or wordpad. You can also make a wordsearch with those words, as well as access the web to get their meanings. As an added bonus, you may chat with you peers over the net and upload your wordlists or other files to them (once you know their IP address). Hopefully the attached pictures describe all of this.



I have custemised the program for donation coder. Sorry about the wait. Enjoy!


I would like to hear from the locations that people come from. I'm just interested to see how far my program travels, and to what use it is being used for. I work for a school, so I created the program for the literacy program at the college where I work at. Please send any bugs that you may find, so that I may fix them.

Sorry people, I lost track of this thread.

I will upload the programs for you all hopefully tomorrow.

Here they are:






Updating once again. Added some more features.


Added a zoom function, equation of the line functionality.

Intersections to come soon.


The first Update is here (as shown below):


Click in 4 different places on the form.
Then hover over the black spots with your mouse.
When the mouse pointer changes to a crosshair, you can drag move each point to various positions.

I'm still trying to work out how to place a label half way along a line.


I have also started another project to find equations from 2 points.


I've had this idea for a while, where one can draw a number of straight lines on a variable-sized grid (similar to Coordinator).
The coordinates for the endpoints and the equations for each line are listed dynamically (as shown in the diagram below).
Lastly, the intersections are also shown.

sim eqn plan.JPG

I have attached some VB6 code that works out the equation of a line from two points, and some more code that marks the intersection of 2 lines.

My problems so far are:

1.  How to create a variable snap to grid with cartesian coordinates (0,0) at the the bottom.
2.  How to change the origin position.
3.  How to list captions on the ends and in the middle of straight lines.

If someone could help me out, it would be well appreciated.


Another Update

Added sorted numbers information and worksheet function. Njoy!

cbbibleboy, would it be possible to add one more feature of making a selected line visible or not visible?

I'm thinking of of right clicking on a selected line and setting it to the background colour from the right click mouse-menu.

New version 1.00 C, with pdf function

Things done from first version:

1.  Redesigned the command buttons. Also the command buttons change colour when pressed.
2.  Rich text box added. When you drag and drop the answers to word/wordpad you get the nice and smooth tahoma font.
3.  Cut, copy paste answers from rich text box.
4.  Added convert text file to PDF function.
5.  Added a clear all function.
6.  Added credits and Tools menu to the menu bar.
7.  Fixed number of decimal places for some quantiities.


I've been looking for something like this for a while. Ive started playing with a vb program by Anton Venema,as shown below


I'm half way there, but need help on how to:

1.   List the outliers
2.   Put the original values in ascending order.
3.   Accurately plot a boxplot with outliers

I'm thinking of putting the answer values into a rich textbox so that I can include a boxlot sketch.

What the program does so far:

After inputting some numbers (seperated with commas) the program works out statisical values like mean, median, mode, range, etc. It then outputs the results into a text box and adds the next results to the text box after the next number values have been entered. Lastly the results can be dragged and dropped into Word for Windows for additional editing.

Next RTF version coming soon (I hope).


My original use was to create math puzzles, like those in the back of high school maths text book.

Other applications:

Travel itineries - working out the best way to see the important all the things that you want to see, with the minimum travel distance.

Creating network diagrams  - suitable for work out best delivery routes for delivery jobs.

Building industry - useful for working out the amount of materials reuired (such as tiles, carpets, etc.)

Real estate/property development: Working out the total perimeter and area of various properties.

Plan drawing - drawing accurate plans for houses etc.

Copying items - tracing over identical items to create accurate duplicates (could be used in manufacturing)

And many more uses.


I've found a window snapscreen capture program done in Csharp. I tried to open the listing the you sent me for version 2, but it would not open. Would  you be able to send me the code listing for Version 3?

Is this what you are after?

LOOKING REAL GOOD. The updated version looks fantastic. I like the clean, clear anti-aliased look. Thanks for adding the area function, the closed path functionality, the coordinate list box and the many other bits and pieces. A real great effort.

Hi people. I had a go at making something similar, but it's not as good as the Net version (in my opinion). The Capture facilty still needs some tweaking.


TSaint, you need to download the Net Framework Ver. 3.5 from .
The full version was 201 Mb in size.

Then the program will work.


Once again I'm impressed with the newest version of coordinator. It's looking fanstastic. You have put quite a lot of work into the program. I really like the "move the origin feature". I've come across a few problems and have had some more ideas. I have attached a VB area calculator program from VB Planet that I was impressed with (I modified it a bit to add a save coord feature, OLE support, and copy to clipboard feature) and also a word document to outlining the probs. and some more ideas for our coordinator program. Both attachments are zipped.

The Minor Probs.

1.   Getting an exception fault “Index was out of range”  when clicking slightly off center (towards the negative x side?)
2.   The last point does not seem to join the original first point when enclosing a shape. I can only do it by using the move menu option after placing the    last point to a temporary position.

Some more ideas for improvements

1.   Perhaps use a “dragover” event to move an incorrectly placed point. Your Right mouse click menu is also quite good.

2.   Double clicking on the last point to stop joining the points & then clicking elsewhere to start a new set of joined points again.
   (The original points are still on the screen, and the points still keep on numbering)

   Or Right mouse clicking on the last point to get a menu “Start New Unjoined Point” option.

Also when restarting having the words End-Restart appear in the coordinates list (Useful for creating multiple closed shapes).

3.    Having OLE enabled in the coordinates textbox list, so one can also drag the list of coordinates directly into Wordpad/MSWord (another method    to save the points). See polygon area calculator program from Planet VB to see what I mean.

4.   Default start grid size = 30 px  ?

5.   Use a snap to grid size option of ½ of a square. See polygon area calculator program from Planet VB to see what I mean.

6.   Perhaps having an option to calculate the area of an enclosed shape? 
   See polygon area calculator program from Planet VB to see what I mean.
   To activate this function:
   Use Shift and right click on each of the lines enclosing the desired shape (the selected lines change to an active colour).
   Then click on an Icon to calculate the area.

7.   Perhaps also saving the coordinates to a separate 2 column listbox so that the X and Y coordinates can be placed into a spreadsheet.

Once again cbbibleboy, thanks for all your help, support and words of wisdom.

Here are a few more Ideas that I had, to improve the program.  I'm still really happy with the program so far. Thanks cbbibleboy.

Hi cbbibleboy.

Thankyou for your great contribution. I had not been on donation coder for a while due to a family member getting sick (Sorry about not replying earlier as I was not on the Net much until today). I have tried out the first version of "coordinator.exe" and was quite impressed. I really like the simple design, the scaling and the opacity feature.

I had trouble running the beta version, as an error message was coming up saying that I need Net Framework Ver. 3.5. Hopefully I will find the upgrade on a PC magazine DVD which I had bought lately. I'm not sure if you had implemented a "save the coordinates feature", so I'm really hanging out to update my net framework to test out the latest version of the program.

I will try to get back to you soon to let give you some more feedback on the beta version.

Thanking you very much for your great help and also for the time that you had spent,

Justabeginner (till I learn some more)

PS.  Hopefully I'll be able get to your Email in the About Dialog when I've done the Net Framework update.
