— the set of classes, forms
and procedures that aid in dates picking, manipulations and business
(banking) days calculations. The solution includes a compact Calendar
form that can be used as a traditional date picker control ('drag-and-drop'
functionality is supported). Moreover, it allows easily determining the
number of business (banking) days between current and selected date or,
vice versa — finding a date standing at a given period
of calendar or working days counting from today. This feature is very
useful for business applications which often deal with due dates and
different time limits (such as “5 banking days”,
“10 business days”, etc). The information about holidays,
retrieved from the Holidays Database, is used while doing calculations.
The solution also includes forms to maintain this
data — inserting, deleting, describing the dates. All
legal holidays in USA and Canada can be automatically included.
Programmer is also given a set of more than forty
that expand the default capabilities of dates manipulation.
The solution contains two releases — completely
object-oriented 'all-in-one' solution, developed as integral class
library, and more traditional release — the set of forms
