I'm trying to a create a app for work that does the following:
User fills out a form.
Name (edit box)
Time (dropdown with 5 choices, ie 9-10am, 12-1pm)
Date (calendar object)
Once the user has filled/chosen what they want, it writes this back to a INI file
Time=P4 (12:40 to 13:35)
Now, i set up another frame with 10 lines like the following:
I can read this data back from the ini file no problem but..
I need to retrieve this data from and preferably order it by date/time.
However, i also want to compare it to the day/time and set a flash/alarm to alert the person he needs to do this urgent job.
I can not compare a time/date object to a string so am a bit perplexed how to solve this.
Also, i imagine i would have to find a way of inputting a new entry without erasing things in the ini unless i want to.
I have done something similar using mmf2/php/database but i'd rather just try and do all this inside of F2.5 this time.
