Note: Read this tutorial only if you are even a small VB programmer. Want to just download the program? Download! – extract and run setup.exe
Happy experiencing :] Bye. Or else…
Few months ago I came across PeterAnswers.com by accident, whilst browsing the net. It is your turn now… please go through the entire homepage and then continue reading this tutorial (you will understand better). Thatʹs NOT artificially intelligent ;D
Hope you are done! Wondering how it works? See, I can read your mind. ta – daa
So actually, how that application works is not very complicated. I exactly do not know how, the reason being there is more than 1 way to do it. But to my guess: there is a certain number of answers stored in a database, and those answers are randomly generated. Yeah, that is no big deal. PS: All are NEGATIVE ANSWERS to tell you the truth.
One evening as Iʹm used to think something with coffee, coding a simple (software) program like PeterAnswers.comʹs app. [without using a database] struck my mind. I didnʹt give too much priority though; just opened Visual Basic 6.0 and started developing that – for the sole purpose of trying to figure how could something like that happen (why I used VB is because it was only meant to be a quick test). However as it got interesting, there were times I worked only on that. Yes.
First of all I developed the basic structure, obviously… along with codes to connect all parts of the program together. Then I started working on the design and did some serious programming: I myself created the images using Photoshop except the background ones, I had to transfer information between forms (with the help of variables) and also ensure that the codes used are simple but still very effective – reducing much unnecessary code. There were too many bugs at one point. I got fed up and left it for a while, focusing my time on studies.
Last night I fortunately survived the coding mood for a long time, where I decided to debug the program and somehow managed to bring down the number of errors to a great extent. And got it all set-up and working. Yaay! The main purpose of the program was accomplished. I know something now i.e. you want the code!
