Notes - Plain Text Editor

    I created a very simple plain text editor, taking inspiration from Microsoft's Notepad.

    My application is really intended for learning (I learned a lot doing it), but you must note that the code is untidy (I found this out in a post in the Techoff), although I think you will probably be able to understand it.

    The application can Save, Open, Print, do Page Setup, change font, Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete, Undo, Word Wrap, Find, Replace, Goto Line, and more.

    Can anyone find something wrong, or something I should do?

    (By the way, the setup [no source code] is available from:

    There is really nothing wrong with the application and/or code.
    On thing, if you intended to do or not, is that in your drop down menu, some icon representation in the  ToolStripMenuItem prperties may be missing.

    Thanks Angus!

    The "AngusEditor" is proudly on my desktop, and will be used for my xhtml1.1 and css. I'll post if any problems occur. Please let us know when you release an update, etc.?

    Thanks very much! Smiley

    I will be pleased to hear of any problems, and I will think about putting up some updates soon, however I am busy with school work for about a week or so.

    It is completely useless, but I have no ideas, and I have always wanted to do something like Notepad so I did. Nothing is wrong with Notepad, but I decided to do this anyway.

    I'm always on the lookout for a new and improved text editor.  Forget the drag-n-drop...that's only for newbs who can't type worth a crap.

    Suggested features:

    * codes for header and footer
    * colored text
    * line numbering

    Why would you want colored text? unless you mean syntax highlighting, which is a very much more diffcult thing to achieve than you might realize (you need to draw the control yourself, build a tokeniser and have fast algorithms for partial tokenisation so it isn't pausy as you write)
