Does anyone know of a freeware with source (or inexpensive) pop up
calculator that I can integrate into my applications?

Need source so that I can add special calculations, in particular
number of dates between two dates, date + no. of dates = ? and other
things to do with renting properties.

TIA

Kia Manuia

If you need to work with dates, use ESBDates

esbdates looks interesting, but I'm really looking for the UI.  

I envisage using a hotkey from anywhere in my app to bring up a
calculator looking screen.  If the active component held a date, that
date would be loaded into the calculator and I could press "+" to add a
number of days.  Similarly if the the active component was an edit with
valid number that would be loaded.  Button to copy to clipboard and
exit.

If there is something out there already, then I don't want to reinvent
it.

Thanks for your help.

Jeff

I've emailed you my homebrew lookup stuff. There's a calculator in there. You'll need DropDownForm from MustangPeak (freeware) and possibly some bits from TMS to use all the components.

I didn't go for buttons on the screen to click because I thought it was easier to type in stuff like 1+2 than move mouse click 1 move mouse click + move mouse click 2 and in my usage of Calc I've always pressed the keys rather than clicked the buttons.

I'd recommend just writing it.  A while back I wanted to find an attractive
login dialog that didn't look like it was designed for windows 3.1 and that
could show the status of the caps lock key.  I looked and looked and looked
and simply could not find one.  I ended up building one and getting exactly
what I wanted in an evening.

You could build exactly what you wanted.  Maybe two calendars side by side
with the addition and subtraction buttons close.  One calendar show the date
working from and the other calendar shows the ending date.

Building a dialog is extremely easy and not only do you immediately get what
you want, but you also can modify to it as you need.

Naw Jeff's old school what he wants is some stiff todo it for him.
However you are right about ESBDATES them functions and
procedures served me well in the past on a time and date booking
form. I have my own question on that and will go now and post it
as I dont want to hijack this thread mmmmmm Wink

Kia Orana to you Jeff there is a freebie on tory delphi pages called
dtcalc.zip it may be what u need it comes with a simple demo.
The popup calculator will just have to be the standard one that comes
with Delphi but the date time hours minutes and seconds is all there.

This is how it should read I didnt have my teeth in Wink
The calculator bit can be just 2 TDateTimePickers standard with Delphi.

Hi Rita

Old school, yep!  I've even kept the tie.  Probably 40 years as a
programmer probably qualifies me as old school.

Being old school, I'm lazy enough to copy, beg, borrow (not steal) or
even buy someone else's code if it will do the job.  More time on the
beach for me!

Hark! Is that the surf roaring on the reef? The sky is blue.  Nice and
warm - why isn't that stiff doing it for me yet?  I'm outa here!

Cheers

Jeff

Hi Jeff

Try the calculator component in the Orpheus Turbo Power
library... it works very well and is now free/open source.

I'm not sure whether it has been updated to D2009 (if that's an issue)
but it certainly works well with previous versions of delphi.
