Eventus  Examples

Eventus 9 (and 8) for Windows installs several annotated sample programs in the My Eventus Files folder, typically (My) Documents\Eventus. Older examples on this page are still potentially useful, although in some cases there is now an easier way to do the same thing.

Additional examples appear in some of the FAQ answers, especially in the Tips, Tricks and Techniques section of the FAQ page.
