File Comparsion Program
Purpose of File Comparison:
I've created a small Windows Application which allows the user to open two files within the same program, I've filtered the file types to text files, batch files and HTML files.
I wrote the program, since usually if I'm writing up a batch file, I will add or remove certain elements, and see if the batch file will work any better, although usually I would have to constantly copy and paste the original program, save the batch file, and then run the batch file. This program will allow you to create one batch file, and then change elements in a entirely different file without affecting the first file.
I also had an idea, that if someone was teaching another user, how to write in HTML or Batch, then they could compare the learner's file to their file, and quickly find any bugs or errors within the code for the learner.
Here's a fee screenshots of the program:
The UI consists of two simple text boxes, and a menu strip with a few options similar to those found within Notepad.
The program has the ability to open two files independently of each other.
Clicking the Exit button, will warn you before exiting the application, so you don't accidentally delete your own work.
The program will allow you to open HTML files, Batch Files and Text Files.
Change the font size and font colour in both files, to allow you to highlight any changes or bugs you may find when writing or reading batch files. I've included larger font sizes to enable users to read the text better (I can add bigger sizes if needed).
Hope this program is useful to anyone, please PM me if you have problems or questions with the program.
Version 1.1 Release [Beta]:
I've made a small addition to the program, when you press the X, you will receive a prompt to confirm you want to close the program. See below:
At the moment, the program doesn't detect if you have made any changes, I'm learning on how to implement that into my program.
If you don't save any files, then the program loops back to the message box, I think I'm going to have another form created when the X is pressed, which will prompt you to save the file or not save the file instead.
Version 1.1 Release:
When clicking X, a message box will appear giving you two options: Yes and No. Yes will create a Save dialog box, the first box will be for File 1 and the second box will be for File 2. The No option will simply exit the application without saving any files.
Version 1.2 Release:
The program now detects changes to the text box, for example if you type anything into either text box, then you will receive the message box. If you haven't, have any changes to a text box, then the program will close normally without a message box appearing. Please note, even if you open a file into the text box, and don't make any modifications to the file, then the message box will still appear asking you if you would like to save the changes. I'm going to work and trying to detect modifications to opened files.
Version 1.3 Release:
The program will detect any changes made to opened files, and ask if would like to save these changes upon exiting the program. I would like to thank AceInfinity for helping me with the final version of the program.
Version 1.4 Release:
I've cleared up some code in the program, and added Combo Boxes as the option selection for the colours and font sizes. I've also added a few more colours to the program.
Version 1.5 Release:
Added Colour Dialog box (supports all colours), and added support for multi-colour text in both text boxes.

How can I write a batch file that opens a file in a program?
I wrote this batch file which does what I want it to do so far. @echo off "C:\Users\xxxxxx\Documents\HideTaskbar\HideTaskbar.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLANold\VLC\vlc.exe" "C:\Users\xxxxxx\Documents\HideTaskbar\ShowTaskbar.exe" exit
