Create a program that will keep track of a media library to store

CSC 162 Final Project

Media Library


Create a program that will keep track of a media library to store movies. It will store all of the data using arrays. Since we have not learned how to use files or a database the information will not be stored anywhere and will be lost once the program ends. The program will keep track of a movie’s title, actors/actresses with characters, movie length, and year of the movie. All data will be stored in arrays.

Arrays needed for Movie Library




 Rating (index value of drop down)

 Actors/characters (must be able to have more than one actor per movie)

o Example: Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark

Required Controls

Ø Multiple Forms

Ø Textboxes

Ø Labels

Ø List boxes

Ø Dropdown (Combo box)

Ø Menus

Ø Splash Screen

Ø About Dialog

Other Requirements

Ø Use Module file

Ø Use of non-event procedures (procedures defined by you)

Ø Must prompt user on exit to make sure they want to quit the program

Ø Must prompt user on save to make sure they want to save the changes

Ø Must prompt user on delete to make sure they want to delete a media item

Ø Must use variables within the procedures and functions

Ø ALL input fields must be validated – is numeric, is the field empty etc. 

Ø All numeric fields must be converted using CInt or CDec and assigned to variables

Bonus option (10 points!)

Ø Store data in a file

Movie Selected

Ø Dropdowns must be populated

Ø Disable all fields

Add New Movie

Ø Enable all of the fields

Ø Set focus to the title field

Ø Clear all of the fields

Save a New Movie

Ø All fields must be filled in to add a movie

Ø Movie cannot already exist in the list to be added to the list

Ø Year of the movie must be numeric

Ø Length of the movie must be numeric (total number of minutes)

Ø Display messages to user for each of the above error conditions

Ø Make sure there is room in the arrays, if not resize the arrays

Ø Current selected item in the list box of movies should be the movie just added

Ø Disable all of the controls again

Item Selected in Movie List

Ø Update fields to display the movie details including any actors listed.

Add New Actors to a Movie

Ø Ask how many actors to add

Ø Add each actor and the name of their character

Delete an Actor from the List

Ø Select an actor from the list for a movie and delete them

Update the Actors list for a Movie

Ø Add an actor to the list for a movie only if there is room on the list
