Address Book (Free Vision)
« on: January 19, 2021, 08:00:22 pm »
This is one of my legacy TP console app written many years ago.

It was featured in FREE SOFTWARE FOR DOS (maintained by Steve 'Short.Stop' Adelewitz who was passed away in 2009)

Splash screen reports number of records and total size of database. Menu or dialog box operation, using mouse or keyboard. Runs in DOS box under Windows 9x.

2005-02-04: v1.51. Package now includes PAS source.

Download addrbook.zip (49K).

The ADDRBOOK.PAS in this attachment is recompiled using FPC 3.2.0 with minor changes.

Screenshots showing Free Vision (was Turbo Vision) menu and dialog-driven user interface. (The code page of my command prompt window cannot show the background and button shadow correctly)

Hopefully I am allowed to share this little console app as Third-Party Announcement.  :-\
FPC 3.2.0 on i386-Win32.

I think one can modify the ADDRBOOK.pas to suit other types of inventory (by Find & Replace , etc) since it contains basic Add, Edit, Delete, Search, View, Export function (except Print).....

I am thinking to write a designer of 'ADDRBOOK' that allows exporting of Pascal code containing the customized fields. What do you all think?

Sounds reasonable, but reminds me a little of some of the "fun" I had years ago working out scemata for LDAP etc.
