This self-extracting archive contains five programs that demonstrate the
facilities found in Data Entry Workshop, a new product from TurboPower
Software, scheduled for release in late summer 1992.
Data Entry Workshop ("DEW") includes two custom control libraries, DEWCC.DLL
and DEWSC.DLL, that together provide 8 new classes of controls: three entry
field controls, a spin control, a shade control, a meter control, a toolbox
control, and a toolbar control. These control libraries are designed to be
used in conjunction with Borland's Resource Workshop and with BWCC.DLL.
Below are brief descriptions of each of the five demo programs. See DEW.TXT
for additional information on the product.
ADDRBOOK demonstrates how a typical database application written with
DEWCC.DLL would look and behave. After loading ADDRBOOK, select File | Open
from the main menu, then select the SAMPLE.ADR file that we've supplied.
To edit an entry, press or double-click on it. Within a date field
in the entry screen, press or double-click to bring up a calendar
This do-nothing program displays an entry screen that contains examples of
the various control types implemented in DEWCC.DLL.
CUSTDATA is another sample database application. It uses the toolbar control
from DEWSC.DLL, and its data entry screen is a child window that's always
displayed. CUSTDATA also uses DEWCC's special shade controls to organize
other controls in the entry screen into groups.
DOODLE is an MDI application that uses the toolbox control from DEWSC.DLL.
It lets you scribble things on its "doodle pads," each of which has its own
MOCKUP suggests what a status dialog in an installation program would look
like if it used DEWSC.DLL's meter control.
