I posted this in the Spanish typing thread, but it looked pretty dead so am making a new one and copying the message here.
Finally, the code is complete.
I call the new program QSC, short for 'Quick Spanish Characters'.
This program was designed to make it much easier to use the Spanish alphabet. It's great for doing the excercises in the "Learn Spanish" section. It's much easier than hitting the little button with the mouse.
To use the special letters tap twice very quickly. The time between the taps can be changed by left clicking on the icon on the system tray and choosing 'options'.
This program currently supports these characters "ÁÿÍÿÿ áéíóú ªº¡¿"
For ? ¡ ? tap '>>? , for 'º? tap '<<? , for '¿? tap '''? ,and for 'ª? tap 'mm? all others are the same key like ñ is nn , á is aa .. so forth and so on?
'''...remember to double tap the key on your keyboard.
To quit the program left click the icon on the system tray and choose 'Quit?
To Disable or Enable the program choose , 'disable? or 'enable? on the options menu.
There are still some bugs, if you want to tell me about them, my email address is on the options menu.
When it installs it will add an icon to your desktop and to your Programs menu. If you do not like it or it causes unforseen problems, it can be uninstalled in control panel-add\remove programs.
.Net 2.0 (freely available from microsoft) The installer will let you know where to get it.
I tested it with Vista and it doesn't work correctly.. I will have to find a Vista development machine to edit and recompile it on, it may take a few weeks.
