RColours converts the colour bands commonly found on resistors into the value of that resistor or it converts a given value into the colour bands that would be used to represent that value. 3 and 4 band representations are supported and the user can switch between the two to compare the result (the value is held constant and the colour bands altered to suit).
The value is displayed or can be entered in the industry standard 1K2 style. The colours are displayed on a picture of a resistor as well as being named in the for publication on the Internet. RVal and MailUtil have been the result of my own needs - often the best reason to write a program. But first, RColours which I have published as an unashamed advert for RVal
Yes, I'm joining the hoards of people that have written Resistor colour code convertors - there are even Java convertors for use on-line! What makes mine different? Firstly it will convert either way; from the colours to the value (as all of my rivals do) and from the value to the colours. Secondly it's small, both in terms of program size and in the screen area occupied (neither of these can be said of some of my rivals!). It supports 3-band and 4-band representations of the value as well as providing a comprehensive list of tolerance band colours as well as (the rarer) temperature coefficient band colours.
- New in RColours V1.02:
- The program now behaves correctly on systems where the decimal point character has been defined as something other than '.'
- User interface colours now obey system colour choice!
This program has been written using Microsoft Visual Basic version 3.0, so it will run under 16 or 32 bit Windows operating systems (Windows 3.x or Windows 95/98/Me and NT/2000). It has been tested on Windows 3.1, 95, 98, Me and NT 4.0.
If you do not already have the file "VBRun300.DLL" on your machine (probably in the "WindowsSystem" directory) then you will need to obtain a copy from Microsoft (226K). If that fails try searching the web for "VBrun300" or e-mailing me and I'll send you a copy.
RColours is Freeware so no registration is required. If you wish to Suggest improvements or report any problems I will be pleased to hear from you.
