Blog Summary:Multi-Program Project

“The Fashionista’s Guide” for the Multi-Form project in visual basics was an interesting way to combine several steps learned through the lessons of VB. In the project, there were several new components in which demonstrated the programs use as well as a few extra bonuses. The goal of the project was to capture many projects into a large one with a main title that would link to six different projects. Some projects, I decided to make them more alike my theme, being personal shopping. For example, for the “Shell Program” I took it literally into a pearl program (as in Tiffany & Co.) For the “Pizza Program” I used salad for the weight instead of pizza. All my programs somehow relate to the multi-form, as you can see in the sub-headings of the running program. The program was interesting to put many things into one program with the click of the mouse and a few words that would "unload" the existing program. The Easter Egg was the newest, most interesting form I used in this Multi-Form Project. It is an Easter Egg that happens on the main menu screen after clicking Ctrl-A. A scary man (image on the left) pops up on what used to be a cute girl’s face (image on the right). It would remain there until you either exit out of the program or choose another option. The multi-form project was the most enjoyable project this year that let me put a creative edge on the style of the program.
