I want to make an appointment manager type thing in Delphi. In which I can add/edit/delete/make sure appointments dont clash.
Its part of a larger program I am making in Delphi which is why I cant use anything else (apart from microsoft access via a DBGRID) and it is really confusing me!
Does anyone have any ideas to get me started? I mean what components I should use? Im slightly experienced in delphi but not experienced in linking/using it with other programs.
The only options I can think of...
1) use the DBGRID and the DBnavigator components, linked to an access database, but I dont know how to check for clashes or how to say editbox.text := row 1, column 4 in the dbgrid (as ild also need to be able to do that).
2)I have heard you can alter the Calender component (Tmonth calender) to take multiple appointments but yet again I cant seem to work it out.
3)Perhaps link it up with a calender from another program (e.g microsoft outlook) but I would need advice as to how to do this.
I have tryed for ages to do this, and would really appreciate any help/advice to get me started.
