  2. Re: Visual Basic 2012. Mesa Online Course. Need help with Chapter 4 Assignment.

    To expand on that a bit, CInt will throw an exception if the value is not fully convertable to the right type. Using exception handling for that is costly. The proper conversion is TryParse. However,...

    Re: What if there was a NEW vb6

    Quite honestly, I'm shocked that it isn't already here. How long was the internet around before it became clear that the major use of the internet would be the dissemination of porn (and cat videos)?...
  8. Re: question about Object Oriented Programming?

    The strict OO design really got going in the late 80s and early 90s with SmallTalk and the beginning standardization of ANSI C++. SmallTalk fanatics tended to deride C++ because you could actually...
  9. Re: ADO .NET update row in a table without primary key

    I'm a bit confused as to what you tried and what you didn't try. A primary key is pretty useful, since it will uniquely identify a record. However, you don't totally need it, as long as you can...
  10. Re: Work with unknown symbol from terminal

    ASCII is only one byte, so the highest value it could possibly have would be 255. Any characters above 127 are pretty unusual.

    That's a pretty cool link. The reviews are a hoot. I didn't peruse them sufficiently to know whether or not anybody called it a good Sumer-time read, or not.

    Isn't the problem that the child controls are drawn last, so they will draw themselves to the actual extent of the picturebox, regardless of the image in the picturebox?

    I was going to point that out, too, except that since his inner arrays were all the same size, a visual representation would be that of a saw blade where all the teeth have been worn flat.
