In order to test core C# principles and windows programming skills, the following are required. Any additional
functionality should be designed and added as needed.
1. Create appropriate class and methods for handling user login information.
a. User information/details are stored in a text file named “login.txt” in the following format
(each value is separated by a comma):
Username, Password, User_Type, First_Name, Last_Name, dd-mm-yyyy(Date-of-birth)
b. Use of appropriate collection/data structure is required for storing the user information from
the “login.txt” file.
c. The class should have appropriate variables to:
i. Track the currently logged user and their user type
ii. Accessors for each of the variables.
d. The class should have methods to:
i. Load all users from the “login.txt” file into an appropriate data structure.
ii. Save all users back to “login.txt”, when a user logs out of the text editor.
iii. Checking if a user name and password provided by the user is valid.
iv. The type of user describes whether a user is allowed to edit any file. There are two
type of users:
– “View”: The user can only view any text file. Text editing is disabled in the
text editor window.
– “Edit”: The user can create/edit any text file. 2. Login Form:
a. This is first screen displayed when the program is launched
b. All the user information from “login.txt” should be loaded into appropriate data
c. When login button is pressed, the username and password in the textbox are checked with
all the available user information. If the login is successful, the text editor form/window is
displayed. In case of unsuccessful login, appropriate message is shown using MessageBox()
and the login windows remains open.
d. When Exit button is pressed, the application is closed.
e. When New User button is pressed, the New user window/form is displayed and hides the
3. New User Form:
a. A user is allowed to enter the required information.
b. When submit button is pressed, the information is added to the data structure/collection,
and all information is saved back into the “login.txt” file.
c. When cancel button is pressed, the Login form is display and hides the New user form.
4. Text Editor Window:
a. Appropriate common dialog boxes should be used to implement the open, save and save as
functionality available in the menu strip under File menu and also the respective tool strip
b. Open menu will allow to select a text file and load all the text from the file into the
c. Save and Save as, will save all the text line in the RichTextBox into an .rtf file.
d. The Bold, Italic and UnderLine buttons on the top ToolStrip are used change the selected
text style to bold, Italic or UnderLine.
e. The ComboBox on the top ToolStrip shows the font size from 8 to 20, and is used to change
the size of the selected text in the RichTextBox.
f. The Cut, Copy and Paste buttons on the left ToolStrip and Edit Menu are used to
cut/copy/paste selected text in the RichTextBox.
g. The About form should be used to implement the About menu item under Help.

Below is the marking guide for this assessment. It is designed to allow you to get a Pass grade with minimal
effort while still demonstrating that you understand the core principles of .NET development, to get a
Distinction with reasonable effort, and to get a High Distinction with solid effort, and 100% with considerable
effort. It is recommended that you pay attention to the grade distribution and work towards your own skill
In the demos in the lab, your code needs to be compiled in Visual Studio and then the tutor will test for
normal functionality as described in the descriptions above. If your code does not compile you will receive
zero marks. You need to demonstrate that you understand the functionality of various components in a
Windows form and your forms should be easily readable and usable by your tutor.

Acceptable Practice vs Academic Malpractice
Students should be aware that there is no group work within this subject. All work must be
individual. However, it is considered acceptable practice to adapt code examples found in the
lecture notes, labs and the text book for the assignment. Code adapted from any other
source, particularly the Internet and other student assignments, will be considered academic
malpractice. The point of the assignment is to demonstrate your understanding of the
subject material covered. It’s not about being able to find solutions on the Internet.
