Stopwatch of work events... Output to a file...

P: n/a
Hi I want a to create a multi-function vb.net application that logs my
routines at work. For instance I want to first thing in the morning click a
button to say that I have signed in for work and this starts a visual
counters in minutes hours and seconds.

Next I want to log when I take a morning break, and this to start another
visual timer.

I also want to be able to click a button for when go to lunch and this to
start another timer going off.

When I sign off for the day I wish for all my activities to be logged for
the day.

Initially I want this to be simple, but once I have gotten to understand
what I can log then make it more complex as we go.

Does anybody have any ideas of how I can do this? I wish to have a file
saved for every day that I am at work as a mark of evidence...

Regards

Scott

Try creating your own timer class that includes visual timer elements on a windows form.

Perhaps you could look into an MDI application to contain the various instances of your
class?

You can have each instance of your class have a type/duration/outcome/note etc and store
these in a dataset. At any time you can easily write an XML file of the dataset contents
out to the file system.

Just an idea... GL
