Description:I've often written a hangman game to both learn and test the limits of a new development platform/system. This was my attempt in HanDBase to understand Conditional and Calculated Field logic as well as to explore the flexibility of forms. While not perfect, I hope you will find this fun and that it may help you in your own development.
Has Data:Yes
Has Forms:Yes
Reports:Export View to CSV
Comments:Utilizes multiple fields to do calculations and control how controls are displayed on the form. Includes 4 forms: Play Hangman - the main game form. Scores - used to track both the current game and overall scoring Back Door - used for debugging and/or cheating. Shows field codes and how fields are calculated at each step of the game. Help - obvious. With this app, I also discovered that Handbase has an apparent limit on the number of controls you can add to the form. I was just fortunate to be able to complete the main game form though this limit prevented me from adding other data or a link to the Help screen(form).
