Borland C++ Help Please

P: 9
ok I have a web site , made a program that i want to put on my website. but first i have to fix one thing and have not been able to get it to work.

I am going to try and explain this the best I can.

ok I have a listbox (ListBox1) i also have a edit box (Edit1) and one button (Button1)

Then 2 more buttons Save(Button2) and upload(Button3)


Now i want when i open this program to beable to click on Upload and it takes info from a log file and places that info into the listbox. Also i need when i hit save it takes the info inside the list box and places it back onto the log.

This is pretty much the procedure. person x opens the website and see's the form. clicks on upload and names appare in the listbox. Person x now types in his/her name and click enter there name is now in the listbox. They hit save so the next person that comes alone will now see person x name when they hit upload.

What i am doing is alot more detail but in a small example this answer should help me along the way.

Also do i need the upload button or can i make it so when it starts it automaticly loads the log file into the listbox?

iam sure ill have more questions but for now these are my major ones.
Thanks

Sorry squills, but this question sounds like a web app. Where do you get the idea that it has to do with Borland C++?

Also upload and save are just the names of the buttons.

Borland C++ probably has some plug-in type extras that allow buttons and labels to created like VB - but this is just a guess, as I've never used Borland before.

So what you are making is a server application?

well i dont know much about servers. but pretty much this is my program.

i have a web site that i want to put this program onto. once the program is on there i will have a log file also stored on the program.

so when someone visits this page in my website they can add there name to the listbox. and i want the list box to keep eveyones name

so i thought i had to have a way of saving the info...kind of like a database

i wish we could attach pictures i would show you what i have would make it alot easier...

ok let me try this way of explaining it.

i have a list box the names mike bob and carol are in it
ex. Mike
Bob
Carol


ed visits the page and wants to put his name init so when he visits he should see the other 3 names all ready in the list box. he enters his name ED
so next person that comes to that page will see
mike
bob
carol
ed

ill see if i can get a link to my picture it might help explain things

ok i have picture up so let me explain my whole program just so your not confused.

This is a program for my online game i play. I what to record who has certin keys.
I have all the programming working just it wont save.



if that dont work go to http://img136.imageshack.us/img136/459/programrl5.png

OK you come to my page and the form1 pops up. from there you will put in your name and check marks next to what keys you have and press enter. On the right there is 7 buttons each button has a list box. EX. if you press button called The Eye it will hide all other list box but the one called listbox for The Eye.

Now when you press enter your name will go into what ever listbox you placed a check next to EX. you checked The Eye and The Arcatraz then your name would be placed in listbox for The Eye and for The Arcatraz.

The problem iam having is once the name is in the box and you leave everything in the listboxes are gone. what i want is when hte next person after you comes to this they will see your name in the list box for what ever key you have..

Does this help any... can you tell what i need or should have?
thanks

Ok, I understand. It is like a .NET web server app aka ASP .NET Web Forms. However, if it is a web app, you've got more problems then what you are asking. Synchroniation is a biggie, (you have two people hit the site when a third has just submitted, depending on timing, you will get the name and stuff from the previous submitter, the current submitter or garbage as the submition is in progress) though if you use a database, this isn't so bad as that can make access to the information atomic.

After the sync problem, it is a cake walk (that means a good thing right? :)). You access the information when the onload event occurs, and setup the page accordingly. Now, how that is done in the Borland framework is something I don't know. But if Borland C++ is using the .NET framework, then try adding the Page_Load() event and setting the stuff up from there.

Hope this helps.

You can do it without a database, but it could get messy. It would require some thought in design.

You could get MySQL, but you will need to learn the SQL interface. Are you using .NET under Borland C++?
