Scribble Tutorial Steps

The tutorial develops the Scribble application in seven steps. By installing the sample files, you can make a local copy of all project files in their representative state for each step. By default, these files are copied to subdirectories (represented as folder icons in your Project Workspace window) named STEP1 through STEP7. You can change the name and location of the subdirectories.

Before beginning the tutorial’s steps, you must create the starter AppWizard files for Scribble as explained in Lesson 2. Steps 1 through 6 describe how to develop the basic Scribble application. Step 7 describes how to convert Scribble to an OLE server.

Note   A single tutorial step might be covered in more than one lesson. The following table correlates steps and lessons. Each lesson begins where you left off in the previous step.
