Test card/screen Simulator!

My dad is a Ham Radio/TV amateur and he asked if i could write a better version of his version Test card/screen program that he found on the internet.

http://home.worldonline.nl/~peterdb/testcard/ Site is offline 

My version is almost a one 2 one copy of Peter his program the only different aspect is: custom screen options.

My dad complains that after he upgrade his video card he could get Peter’s version working correct.

So i looked at the application and told my dad that i could code that in one day and make it better.
I took this challenge because i written some code for custom screen options before.

My version got all basic functions that peter’s version got i left out the RGB options because otherwise i couldn’t make the dead line of one day 😀

If you select view set location Testbeeld you get another window and you can drag it to the desired screen/location…
after hitting the Set button the location is fixed.
If you hit the fullscreen button it will load the Test card/screen on that location.
Some more test card options:

New Mp3 player for my Touchscreen Radio.

unnamed
 Last week i tried DWjukebox on my Touchscreen Radio,
the read me file states that it will not work with a touchscreen or mouse above windows xp
 
So i lost all my touchscreen goodness if i use that program.
I did a search for alternative for it but could’t find any good that looked good enough for standalone player….
So i decided to code my own version in Visual Studio 2010 (VB)
It works very easy:
 First time you run the program you will need to setup the Database.
I do this by making a simple TXT file containing the location of the files.
First select the location of you mp3 files:
Example users/My Music
Then Press the button Prepare TXT and wait until the console screen closes it self and
you return to the first screen.
The program will use a predetermined folder for saving the TXT file.
if you click the Use Mp3 TXT file you will be pointed in to the right folder.
Just select the mp3list.txt and the contend of the txt file will be loaded in to the database.
You can check it and I suggest you do this the first time you Run the program.
When you don’t check the database the Jukebox player will not load the database.
But if you close (click the 25 cent button) and restart it will load the Jukebox and the database
directly. This is a little bug and is in reality very easy to fix only did’t do it for now.
Honestly its not that a big bug because it will only happen at first setup. After setup it will correct
the bug at loading.

Demo video, sorry for no original music from the video.
The source code and the project files are available on Github.
