NEW! DLG Editor--With Autosave!

So, I took a look at Tk102's products again, this time the DLG Editor...

While working on a project, I twice suffered the loss of my data, which was quite demoralizing in and of itself.

Then I had an epiphany: "I'm a programmer who can compile the source code! Why don't I add an auto-save feature?!"

Once I set out to do that, I had to make it user-friendly. I've added options to turn autosave on/off and to change the frequency of the auto-saving. The available frequencies are:
  • 30 Seconds
  • 1 Minute
  • 2 Minutes
  • 3 Minutes
  • 4 Minutes
  • 5 Minutes

When I had LDR test it for me, he suggested another feature: Make the program check about saving the file before it exits when you hit the Red X in the corner. You can thank him for catching the oversight!

The Autosave being on or off and the frequency of the autosaving is stored in the .ini file upon exiting the program, by the way.

LINK!

Edit: I forgot to mention: the autosave stuff can be found in the menubar, under Mode...

Hate to be a bad news Bryant, but when you change the Screen Resolution (Menu Strip> Mode> Screen Resolution) it throws an error

Yeah, I know. Don't worry, the error's harmless. The screen resolution changes on the next launch.
