Converting VB DB to
a Daily Quote Applet
Download VB DB Source
A common scenario is that a
developer needs to create a file to provide data to their application. The
developer must store data in a file in the same manner as the distributed
application will read it from the file.
In many cases it isn't appropriate
for the end-user to manipulate or edit the data. For
that reason you need at least two versions of your code:
- Distributed version
Using VB DB to create the
developer's version of the application will allow you to create files ready for
distribution. When you finish this tutorial you will have an application
you can use to create a file containing quotes for a Daily Quote applet.
The second tutorial will show you
how to convert the code to a distributable application. That
application will have full editing capability but some developer features
will be removed.
