Want to write a new Notepad? Here's a Notepad Clone Project Template to get you started...

Today's WinForm Wednesday project is one that's kind of unusual. I don't highlight Visual Studio Project Templates often, but this one struck a cord with me for some reason. Maybe because we just don't hear much about WinForm these days. Or maybe because it's a Visual Basic template. Or maybe because Notepad seems to be one of those app's people just like to replace. I don't know, but when I saw this, I just thought it was kind of cool...


A clone of MS Notepad designed to reduce the work of coding the basics of an improved clone of MS Notepad. Created by CuBe Laboratories, it has all of the features of the original notepad, like the find/findnext/replace/replaceall functions, the open/save/saveas functions, and a few new ones such as the one that allows rtf resources to be opened so that they can be used for help files.

Once you install this, you get a new Project Template.


Creating a new Project with this template gives you what you'd expect, your own Notepad app, now ready for your tweaking and extending needs...



Say I want to make my own branded Notepad...


Yeah, I know a little "out there" but still if you've ever wanted to create your own Notepad just to add "this little feature" to it, need a customized Notepad like app and don't want to start from scratch or just looking for something a little different, you're just a Template download/install and New Project away...
