    Before I reinvent the wheel. Does anyone know of a calculator that works similar to the function in QuickBooks?

    @ChristianSchmitz I did just buy the MBS plugins. Nothing in there is there?

    Nothing that I'm aware of. It would be an interesting project, though.

    any documentation on the QuickBook version..... I might be tempted to tackle something like that

    FYI... it seems that feature in no longer in Quickbooks (at least not the US version anymore)

    I know, right? If I didn't have 50,000 other things on my plate I'd be willing to play around with it too.

    I suspect it's a popup window with a canvas. Popups work differently on Mac and Windows (or at least the last time I looked in detail).

    thinking TextEdit with a Listbox (or maybe canvas)

    I have started to build one of these.....
    it will be two controls actually....

    • a custom TextEdit that will accept only numeric input, pressing "=" will activate the "tape"
    • the "tape" control.

    The tape control will be placed in your window (anywhere) and set to not visible, there will be a need for only ONE tape control to be shared amongst as many textedit fields as you have.

    It will do simple + , - , * and /
    ESC will cancel all transactions and leave the original value in the textfield
    RETURN/ENTER will commit the transactions to the textfield
    "C" will clear the last transaction

    so the tape will only accept 0-9, + , - , / , *, RETURN, ENTER, Backspace, Escape and "C" characters

    FYI.... I have a somewhat working version of this custom control already built... it isn't "finished" and has a few bugs, but it will be working soon....
