: I also like to create a simple schedule program for my brothers high school where he's a teacher. Basically it will be a few pages of application. First page will be data entering to find and place teachers and may be students as well. We'll need add and delete functions for new records of the teachers lists and then second and third pages will be a table with cells. Eventually it will be four or five pages of application. When we place every individual lessons it will directly goes to individual school classes? and their lessons hours? and every teacher will have a unique numbers with their own unique number colors so they can fill one form and they will have all the rest of the forms filled already so they will print all the necessary pages all together. I would like to have any help with these please. Thanks in advance!
The DelphiLand Team surely can give you a hand. Let's start with the lessons schedule application, let's call it "LesSched" :)
First of all, you need a database system. Not all Delphi versions have the database components, i.e. the free "personal" versions don't, except for the free Turbo Delphi 2006 Explorer.
Next, we have to decide on the kind of database system, the "format" of the database tables. We recommend using a stable and widely compatible format, such as DBF (dBase Files) because it can be easily converted to and it can read many other formats.
So, before we start off:
1. Which Delphi version will you use?
2. Do you have a preference for some database format?
