A mockup Phone in visual basik
Posted on 1999-12-07
I am designing a mock up mobile phone in visual basic. The first problem that I have is with the "abc" buttons. I have a button to put the phone into abc mode to stop the buttons from being numbers and make 1 be "abc", 2 = def...
(assuming I have pressed the ABC mode button) When I click on the button that has the number 1 on it once, I get "a", twice, I get "b" e.t.c. It works. The problem is, is that I would like to be able to press 1 once for an a then for the cursor to move on after a prerdetermined time limit so I can add another "A" or another letter to make up a name.
The other problem I have is with the speed dial buttons. I have 10 buttons down the side of the phone and have a button called edit. What I would like to happen is that the user puts the number that he wants saved into the speed dial in the main field that Is used for dialling. Then he presses edit and then he presses the speed dial button that he wants the number to go into and the number is saved. Then... when the edit button is not pressed, and the user presses a speed dial button, I would like the number stored in that button to be displayed in the main field. This must be done via an access database link, not variables.
I hope my explanation is not too bad!!
