Track billable hours (2)

The attached file is zipped version of my TimeTracker project. I generated this app because I would like to know how many times I spend in front of the computer and to track track whow many time I spend working on various projects (I'm earning money with my hobby ;-)

The best (?) way to implement this was to create an app that resides on the taskbar notifation area, adding some entry to a log-file at startup and another entry at exit. One of the problems involved was that on windows shutdown you get no WM_EXIT command. That was the outcome of my newsgroup question "Taskbar Status Area App?".

The second thing I includes in this project - just for demonstating this feature - is CListCrtlView based class displaying images in SUBitems. For this I have changed YOUR code for "full row selection in list controls" (dont know the exact title now, but you do). The key idea was adding special texts for bitmaps. I only wanted to implement one bitmap for a yes value and another vor a no value. So I choose to enter the text 0]|[ for no and 1]|[ for yes. In OnDrawItem I check, if the text is of length 4 and if the last three characters are the combination ']|[' (I choose two anti-matching-brackets to avoid confusing the find- matching- brace- makros of the IDE) then the first character is convertet to integer and used to determine which bitmap to draw...

Download Files The zip file is 142K.

    It does not work on any of my US English configured systems.

    The author needs to learn to accept "critique", if there is a problem with the code,

    then there's a problem with the code that needs fixing.

    That's the last I say on the subject.
