     A small program to mark your school roll. Developed out of desperation, as the place where I work at has a very unreliable roll system which seems to be getting worse. My program creates small text files that are saved with the date. Don't exit the program, but leave it always minimized in the taskbar, and when the next day arrives the date should change (try it by changing the computer date in your calendar control of your task bar). Also made a small subform to create class lists (enter a class name and copy and paste student names on each line in a text box). Try not to add new classes with the optop feature set, as the subform for adding new classes is modal. Has an on top feature and min/max width by clicking on one of the 4 rectangular labels (shown as red, green or blue at the side/top left). I also thought about having a send email button to send the day's absences to an attendance office person. I intentionally made the program small and light weight so that it could be used reliably used on very low powered computers. Could also be used for Sports teams to keep track of who is turning up to training and who is late or always away. Hope you like it. I see that there have been some new uploads by a variety of people. Fantastic. Great to see Planet VB continuing on. Hooray, my 75th upload. Just realised. I can't believe it!

For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

I was going to make some improvements on this one. Got a few ideas. I wonder if anyone else has some ideas as well?
