Build a software program like’s app.

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 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!

  • Download! – extract and run setup.exe and check the program to get a better idea of how this whole thing works.
  • Have any problem or doubt with the creation of this program? It wonʹt take a minute for you to leave a comment below. Youʹll get a reply as soon as possible.

@hajara_ Whatʹs up? ;]

    Hi, I also made a program in Visual Basic just like Peter Answers. I’m going to take a look at your code to see how you made it… You can also check out my program if you want. I added a cool feature recently that make the program “say” the answer through the speakers. Hope you like it. My site:

    1. Ruzeen says:

      The links are not working mann, I’ll update this soon and let you know! I checked yours; my program is pretty cool 🙂

  17. Jonas says:

    I tried your program, but it’s not really like Peter Answers. In Peter Answers, the person typing is actually writing the answer… Kind of disappointed… I thought you made the same program as me. My program works just like Peter Answers but better :). Well thanks anyways for this program. Link to my program is in above post.

    1. Ruzeen says:

      All links / broken images are fixed. Do check the program!

    More Visual Basic work please 😀
