Brief                      A Smartpad is a collection of buttons each containing a visual image to represent the function that the button will perform when it is selected.  The user can create customized Smartpads for all popular Windows applications to enhance their use and introduce laborsaving shortcuts to increase efficiency.  The course also shows how to create Smartpads which are available to all Windows applications or associated with specific applications.   In addition to user-defined associations the course goes into the advanced functions of using the Smartpad system to act as a DDE server allowing Windows documents such as spreadsheets , Word documents, Visual Basic program, etc., to invoke pads and associate them during execution.  For example, not only can one attach a custom pad to Excel , but each individual spreadsheet document can associate a custom pad of its own to suite the particular application. 

The course also brings to front the full power of the Smartpad system by an in-depth analysis of the rather sophisticated macro-recording/playback, program launching, and DDE execution facilities that can be attached to a button of a pad.
