Almost gave up on this as I lost a lot of whatever coding skill I had. Anyway, still plugging along. I am not in love with the scratch screen by any means but what I wanted to do requires delving into more unfamiliar Windows controls programming techniques that I don't feel like spending time on right now. I might increase the font size but not going to do any major changes unless I have to.

Two major hurdles left -- keeping track of scratched/unscratched horses when the user closes the scratch screen or switches races, and making sure that the modified datafile works. I posted earlier that I did some pre-testing on that and it seemed to work so <fingers crossed>.

Make that three...I forgot that I have to combine the scratches from the Equibase xml file and whatever the user adds/subtracts. Ugh.
