    Re: VB6 - The case for UTF-8

    Let's just let this one fade away. Everybody has had their say, and many of the points were good, but it was beginning to wander away from a constructive discussion to more destructive ends.
  2. Re: All programming languages as wrappers or levers

    Another point to make is that the difficulty has a lot to do with the problem being solved. If you have a database and you want to display (but not alter or update) some of that data, it is pretty...
  3. VS 2005 Re: How to make my app's user sends sms from his own cell phone ?☺

    I'd be AMAZED if that was possible, at least like that. What a massive security hole THAT would be if you could simply put in a phone number and hijack a phone. I would guess that you'd need software...

    Re: using Dataset.Tables.Select

    It IS a copy, sort of. However, a datarow is a reference type (as are all classes). So all a variable of type datarow holds is a reference to the actual object that is somewhere out in memory. So,...

    VS 2010 Re: Project takes forever to save

    That is not normal behavior, as you probably expected. The items you mention have never caused any problem for me. However, since you are talking about a database project, are you copying the...
  6. Re: images stored as byte array go missing when database is copied to new project

    Right, but what I was getting at is the size of the images you are testing with. The size of the 2000 mdb (smaller one) doesn't seem all that big, so either that format is compressing the images for...
  7. VS 2005 Re: How to make my app's user sends sms from his own cell phone ?☺

    Just to be clear: You are expecting a windows program running on a computer to accept a phone number, connect to that phone, and get it to send an sms to other people?

  9. Re: Move "windows form designer generated code" to designer.vb

    Why would you want to do that? There's no particular advantage to having it off in a different file other than tidiness, and even tidiness isn't that big a deal because you could put the whole thing...

  11. Re: conversion from type DBnull to string not valid

    Well, you already have part of it in this line:

    If DBPSW <> TextBox1.Text Then

    So, all that is being added is a check to see whether DBPSW is null before trying to compare it to a string.
  12. Re: Extend existing server-client connection with binary data interchange

    Yeah, does seem like it should work. I'm not familiar with the error you mention. What line are you getting that on?

    Re: The Donald

    A brokered convention. There hasn't been one in nearly 100 years, I believe, though perhaps it was more recent.

    I'm loving this race. I wish it just didn't matter so much, but I've come to realize...
  14. Re: images stored as byte array go missing when database is copied to new project

    Sure makes it sound like the 2000 file format was caching images outside the mdb by some means.

    Do you have a feel for the size of those images? For one thing, you have consistently used the...
  15. VS 2012 Re: Unable to cast object of type 'System.String' to type 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.

    Do you suspect that's the reason because that's the line the exception gets thrown on? If not, then why do you suspect that?

    If that is the reason, then what IS the Eval function?

  21. Re: Is it good practice to put an 'Exit For' in a for loop once your value is found?

    I'll only accept that rule of thumb with the corollary: Code you wrote yesterday might as well have been written by somebody else.

    [RESOLVED] VS2015 References Oddity

    Yep, that's cool. There are several countries that would love to have inflation that easily.

  24. Re: Extend existing server-client connection with binary data interchange

    It's not that far off. After all, a string is really just an array of something. Back in the old days when strings were ASCII, a string was just an array of bytes. These days, with the two byte...
  25. Re: Is it good practice to put an 'Exit For' in a for loop once your value is found?

    I have no problem with nested loops if they make sense. The example Gruff showed made sense to me. If you are iterating through all elements of an N-dimensional array, then you'll end up with N loops...

    VS 2010 Re: default datagrid display

    How are you attaching the table to the DGV? I've never seen the behavior you are showing. It kind of sounds like the DGV is set up to show one of a set of tables where your set only has one item in...

    Well, this conversation sure isn't agile. More like ponderous, I'd say. This is chit-chat folks, not the dissertation forum.

    Considering that this is an image, would you be able to get a clue as to what is going on by looking at the file size of the mdb? An image is liable to be some seriously big data, so if it was...

    Actually, which version of the framework are you using? The version of VS often doesn't matter nearly as much, though if you are using an older version then your choices of framework will be reduced.
  39. VS 2013 Re: Start Program At Startup With Registry

    The key to that exception is finding the object that is Nothing, then figuring out why it is Nothing. So, when the exception happens, you SHOULD be taken to the line that has the object in question....
