adding "Tip for the day" or "Thought for the day" to your application
Posted on 2007-11-21
I can't seem to come up with too much on google, and there's absolutely nothing on EE, so it's time to add this one to the index of knowledge...
I want to have a "tip for the day" every time the application loads.
Typically the form has a scroller so you can see "tomorrow's" tip or "yesterdays tip" too.
There's usually a checkbox that says "Always show tips when the application starts".
I suppose the hints themselves would be stored in a txt file.
Can any expert mash together some kind of randomise function to fetch a random tip and place it in a memo, or even better, point me to an existing example or component for this.
