My second .NET application

Posted in: Sport, Tech

I took the mini interval Tabata timer I wrote last night and added programmable work/rest periods, total number of intervals, separate total and interval timers, and, crucially, a fixed 10s countdown to get in position. I think this is pretty well as much functionality as a high-end stopwatch.

Download IntervalTimer_20050410.exe. Still 20KB :-)

Interval Working

Hmm, I'd only really intended this as a way of learning a bit of .NET but it's proved itself quite handy already. Now, if I would only get the b*astard to deploy onto my phone...!

The application failes to initialize properly. It also failed to give me any reason for doing so. I know it's probably lack of .NET framework, but really it should be capable of telling me that.

Hmm, it's a 20KB application so there is a question about do you want every application shipped with enough code to pop up some kind of dialog box and bloat out your app to several times its original size? Probably not, and definitely not if you're running it on a phone or other small device.

As it happens it is a lack of .NET Framework which will cause it not to run. For this app, since I built it with beta development tools it requires .NET Framework 2.0 which hasn't even shipped officially. You can download it here.

I will go back and rebuild it for .NET 1.1 which is the latest official release. Right now I'm away from work so this won't happen 'til later this week...
