About me : I'm a beginner, I have some basis in C++, some in Java, I have some object-oriented notions, and eventually random knowledge with php/html, msl, or even ahk, etc.
I'd like to realize a project. It should be simple, but I need to know if Java is the most suitable for that, or if I could consider a better/easier solution as I'm a beginner.
The idea :
A 'simple' program displaying a window with different timers. Eventually with colored progress bars. Each timers will have a button "Start timer now", and I could check/uncheck timers so they don't appear on the window. Pretty fun stuffs.
It looks reasonably doable, but I'm almost nowhere with graphic interfaces. I used Netbeans a few times, and I'm not exactly sure their graphics tools will let me make something optimal and as I wish. (Plus, I didn't like that I couldn't modify/move some of the generated code)
So, where would you start if you had to do that ? I'm sure "Java can do that", but I don't feel like I have a start-point, unless I stick to those Netbeans tools.. which are maybe perfect but I'm not convinced atm.
So, what are your thoughts ? Also if you have any tutorial link related to my project, that'd be super great!
