Description: Quiz, consisting in guessing the capital, country surface, inhabitant number, EU entry year or national flag for a given European country. What the quiz is about, may be selected in the Auswahl (selection) menu. Answers are normally given by choosing an item from those listed in the combobox except for Hauptstädte (Eingabe), where the users have to find and enter the capital by themselves and Nationalflaggen, where clicking on the Flagge (flag) button opens a second window with the images of the national flags, the correct answer, in this case, consisting in selecting the correct image (simply by clicking it...).
Push Frage (question) to get a question, Antwort (answer) to check your answer. The success percentage is updated automatically. Use the Neu (new) command in the Quiz menu to start a new quiz (this also re-enables the Auswahl menu).

Change log:
Version 1.0 (January 2018): Original version of the program.
Version 1.1 (December 2019):
    - Extension of the quiz options by adding the EU entry year.
Version 2.0 (March 2020):
    - Usage of a second form (instead of the Open dialog) to select national flags.

Note: With version 2.0 the possible problems with the file display in the Open dialog are resolved. Also, the flag images, to select from, are now displayed in a random order. As the selection of files using the Open dialog may eventually be interesting for programmer newbies, version 1.1 is still available. Here the link to the Previous versions folder.

Free Pascal features: Displaying pictures in a random order; selecting pictures with a mouse-click; changing the display size of pictures during runtime. Showing and hiding controls. Filling a combobox with data from an array.
