Web Site Development

I haven't posted for some time now, so here is a quick update. Real world work has been getting the better of me lately and my time spent on Stealth Player hasn’t gone as expected. I intended to complete the web site’s new look using a template I purchased. I then quickly realized the template had the elements and color scheme I needed for the application itself.

Hey, I’m not a designer. I knew that from the start, but in my haste I didn’t take the time to look for outside help. So here I am, updating the Stealth Player UI. That’s OK though, it looks sharp and I made it even easier to use.

On a technical note: NEVER waste your time on custom painting a treeview or listview in .NET. It’s a total waste of time. I’m tossing my original efforts in that area for a more home grown control. I’ve gotten better at GDI+, so I find it easier to start with a clean slate than to work with the crap that comes with the .NET framework.

I’m ever closer to launch. I’ve decided I’m going to finish the app before I market it. Not that market it now would be a bad idea, but I don’t have enough focus to efficiently do both. This coming long weekend (president’s day) should be great for getting this stuff done and out the door.
