ATM (ATM.vbp)

See Also

The ATM.vbp sample application demonstrates how to use a resource file. This application produces the screen for an automated teller machine (ATM) that lets the user perform a bank transaction in one of several languages, such as English, French, or German.


The ATM.vbp sample prompts the user to specify the language to conduct the transaction in. Depending on the user's choice, the sample loads the appropriate group of resources from the ATM.res file to continue the transaction. For more information, see Chapter 4, "Managing Projects," in the Programmer's Guide.
