Text mood menus days

Peace be upon you

here is new topic, do you remember the old days, DOS days, some people say that it was very ugly days, but I say it was informative days, and I learnt a lot by using dos, I learnt it for some reason, first when I was in school this OLD monochrome PCs with only thing available, it was at 1998, and I was in the Thanaway, Governmental school, we used to get Floppy disk that has DOS 6.22 as I remember, the only thing that can run on this disk was QBasic, C++ compilers need more space for the compiler and more space for the compiler output, so we take GWbasic and QBasic, this time Windows 98 was released, we did a lot of things with this QBasic, we used to do something new weekly, I was in a very geeky team

we was always in the computers room, so we get a very low grades :D anyways, I tell this story to show you some snapshots I hope you like it :)


This is simple application for credit and debit for subscribed users


From this window you query for the user and add or subtract from his/her account

This is simple reports list


in other hand there was a tries to add Arabic support for the Dos Application, and I get it for once :D


this one is done by TC++, I made it when I was in the 3rd grade in the institute, it is something like Paint brush but it is not completely done (it was under dos)


this is the same application with Mouse support :) of course this was under dos



this is the same application in the text mood up there but this is the graphical one ( closing the application )

this was my first try to do Graphical application under dos, adding Icon was little hard this time :) but I did it , this one in QBasic

this application is the same as the one up there, this is add customer window


this is the customer listing




I used one idea implemented many times to test something else, it was the ability to create Menu based application like the ones in the POSs in the super markets , also when I first saw the GUI in windows, I decide to simulate it, and I did :) thanks to ALLAH for that :), by the way , all the source code for this stuff are available, but it was so dirty coding , it was my first tries, this code was written between 1998 and 2003 , this was my start, it was one hour per day is the available for me at the school :), also thank ALLAH for what I have now :)

see you in next topic :)
