Quick Windows Text Extractor App

Client Description

The client sought an uncomplicated Windows application capable of reading a plain text file, then extracting and writing specific lines into a new document based on a provided delimiter. This utility was to be built with urgency, encompassing several user-friendly features and controls.

Project Highlights


Develop a lightweight and responsive Windows application that can quickly process large text files and extract relevant information based on specified delimiters.

Key Features

  • Config File Flexibility: Application accompanied by a config file, enabling users to:
  • Set a default directory for searching files.
  • Specify the delimiter for extraction purposes.
  • User-friendly Interface: Integrated with a basic Windows Explorer to facilitate seamless file browsing.
  • Real-time Progress Indicators: Embedded a dynamic progress display showing the ongoing status of file reading and subsequent file generation.
  • Delimiter Management: Post consecutive delimiters, the application auto-inserts a space for clarity and formatting.
  • Printing Capability: Introduced a print feature, allowing users to generate a hard copy of the extracted information. This feature includes a printer selection option. Notably, the generated file would not be stored, ensuring data privacy and system storage optimization.
