Interesting Facts About Wordpad
To program a software like Wordpad can take about 1 week.
Not too difficult. However, this is true with current
programming tools. Just 10 years a go, it would have
been difficult to program something like Wordpad taking at
least 3 months to develop.
Back then there was no control that can handle text
formatting such as bold, italics, different font sizes
and font style mixed on the same line. So to program
something like Wordpad would have taken a longtime.
The only control that came with Windows
programming was a regular control that displays a single
font for the entire document. Displaying a single font for
an entire document is easy. The font letter sizes are
of a fixed size. To calculate the location of a
certain letter on the screen is a multiplication of the
fixed font size by the number of characters preceding it in the line.
location of a letter on a mixed font screen
is more complicated and time-consuming. This is because
each letter has a different size, since it uses a different
font. To locate the letter on line x and row y
is not multiplication, but a more complicated process of
considering the size of each font proceeding it.
A few years a go, Microsoft has done the job for us.
Microsoft has developed a RichText control
that already has all this programming. The RichText
control came with all the features of mixed fonts on the same
Therefore, now to write Wordpad involved just placing a RichText
control on a Window and making a user interface to all the
functions of the RichText. About 1 week of work.
What most people don't know is that
Wordpad can handle
large files. For most computer needs, most documents that
are edited are small. They are seldom more than 100 pages.
However, some people need to edit files that are 1,000 pages
long or even 10,000 pages long.
Wordpad allows to edit such large file sizes. This might
seem a small point, but programmatically this is an
achievement. Unless a software program specifically
programs to handle large file sizes, the software usually
cannot handle more than 500 pages.
Wordpad is a wonderful little
editor. It can handle any basic document editing needs
of a small business, except that it does not have spell
check. Spell Check Anywhere adds spell check to
Wordpad, and all other programs in Windows.
