Hi,

Software checklist

I have a txt file with 1000's of software names per line. I want a hta to read from the txt file and show the names and each line should have a checkbox at the end. To select if software available or now as dump another checkbox CD and another checkbox downloadable

So 3 checkboxes and 2 buttons select all and select none.
Submit button when selected saves the selections in a ini file and when opened again gets the data from that ini and displays and again we can make any changes and submit.

regards
Sharath

So, and now we're suppose to start programming for you?

Why do you start trying to solve the problem yourself and when you run into a problem, tell us the problem , give us a sample of the list, and we will answer the question.

Sharath, it's a bit unclear what you want from this, but this should be a start......it reads from applications.ini

Regards,

Rob.

Thanks Rob

Its basically going to have all the software names available in the domain.

Say we have 3000 different softwares. I will have them in the ini file. I will email this to the team and every one has a different set of softwares under their control
When i open the HTA for the first time. I will need all unchecked. And say i know that 10 software are downloadable and 5 i have the dump. Then i select this and click on Submit.
The my selection has to be saved into a file. Say another user opens the HTA he has to see my selections and then be able accept his selections and when he submits it has to be appended into the same file.

I will need the log to have the user name auto filled into the file

End of the day i will know which are all that we have the dumps available for and which we do not.
A export button please to get the hta checks and software names to a file. With the users who said they have it.
