    Looking for some constructive (or even non constructive lol) criticism. Ever since i started DIY, i have been looking for a inventory management system for my concentrates, Nic, PG and VG. I have installed the big few calc's like juice grinder, ejuicemeup etc, but they all felt so clunky. Jumping between different menu's to get stuff done and some steps dont make sense. So I'm taking the lockdown as a time to create one. I'm no coder, and basically running on what i taught myself, so this might never get finished lol.

    This is what I have so far, I decided the Mix and Recipe can share the some page, so the recipe page will be deleted.

    Steeping will have a calendar view with which liquids are done on which date. Steep days still needs to be added.

    Shopping List will show a list of items I need to buy, either manually entered by clicking shopping cart on the inventory page, or when the threshold in ml's get triggered while mixing.

    Calculators, I'm thinking of putting in a few random quick calc's, like adjusting a bottle's nic, PG/VG Ratio, quick calculate how much (bulk) liquid i can make with existing nic on han, etc.

    Dont mind the empty columns, label's, etc, they will be populated. Also on the recipe side, it will only show the number of ingredients and hide the "empty" ones.

    Flavours can be increased and decreased by the + - for a max of 10 ingredients

    The Random R110 is a place holder for the price of the bottle, still need to find a fitting place for it. The bottom bar, is like a status bar, where it says, recipe saved, mixed, etc.

    cookbook.JPG Just a bit of update, firstly, i haven't given up! haha

    I had one or 2 people say they would actually want to use this. The initial try was done with a access database, but that means access needs to be installed. And if people other than me want to use it, i wanted eliminate a loophole for possible errors.

    So, had to start a fresh with another way, and finally got it.

    Changed things around a bit, and also made it so each recipe can have 15 ing total, instead of 10.

    Calculations work! The homepage is basically done, only need to calculate totals.

    Again, ignore the stats, the notes, the recipe and the ingredients, its all for testing purposes
    also the "flavour" under nic has already been changed to PG and VG, but to lazy to take a new screenshot

    This looks really good! Well done @muller.s ! I would love to give it a try myself - you can 'abuse' me as a tester if you like. :) Just one question, the concentrate percentages, can that be done in decimals as well? E.g. I do not want to add 1% of WS-23 necessarily but more like 0.5% or even 0.36%

    I am doing a few minor tweaks on the UI as I go, so it changed a bit, but yes, decimals are def in there. I will most def upload it somewhere when I'm done, this forum and the DIY community has given me so much, so I would be honored to be able to give back a little.

    @Samdawolf , @takatatak this is (sadly) a desktop version. I am by no means a coder, and basically self teaching myself VB as im going. So i dont think i will attempt the mobile market. and then with mobile, it will need to sync somewhere to save the inventory etc. That's a bit above my pay grade! lol

    Edit*

    I will however have a look at loading this up onto GIT, and making it opensource, if anyone wants to ever port it

    Edit*
    The D01Green01 is the storage location of the concentrate, so for me, it means Drawer 01, green sticker 01
