Well, thought so too...
It's targetting more the "LOB- and Enterprise-Development for the Win-Platform", which I think
most of the VB* and C# professionals have quite some experience with...
What's the output when you use (as additional CodeLines, applied directly after your ImageLoad-Line in Step 2.)
Dim hDIB As Long
GdipCreateHBITMAPFromBitmap hImage, hDIB, vbWhite
I don't understand why there's the need to update a second table at all.
When we talk about truly new information (which needs to be persisted in a DB-Table),
then (usually) only a single Insert...
That would be great - and when you read the requirements really carefully - the Base-Data is
a simple ASCII-TextFile (which requires parsing into "more efficient InMemory-structures",
I've already put some thoughts (as well as quite some work) into that in my post #730:
Ack, that's the spirit.
And another thing I'd like to mention as "food for thought" ...
I guess 90% of our work (especially in LOB-Apps) is quite uninteresting
and for the most part "just...
The above sentence needs a correction (again):
VB6 was never intended to serve *only* the quick and dirty approach - but it does so with aplomb.
VB6 has everything what's needed, to write...
Well, not sure why my responses always seem to be recognized as "coming-out-of-the-wrath-corner" -
I'm just passionate in defending my position - with good arguments I think - and with reasonable...
How is that different from "screwing up the things you write into the core-code of the specific-duck-class")
But I'm repeating myself here.
You didn't even read or understand my example, when...
Well, that's not a one-sided thing - it's "requests for free work" for all developers who'd participate
(for the sake of the community, which would surely benefit from the different code-bases and...
Wow, blanket unsubstantiated insults and poor spelling all rolled into one groundless sentence. You go, girl.
As for poor spelling - I'm always interested to better my english -...
That VB6 is "superior" is not true ...
Maybe in its RADishness compared to non-RAD-languages - but
not compared to .NET.
Though the opposite-direction (.NET being superior to VB6) is wrong as...
DuckDance, how nice <g>
Ok - let's use your idea, to demonstrate how the Factory could be used alternatively,
to change behaviours as well.
Let's for the moment assume that in your original...
Yep - and the way my example is constructed, it will allow both ways.
1) one Class per each possible behaviour (avoiding any Select Case in those Classes, but then requiring one in the Factory)
Where did you find any information about "soon"?
Maybe you just misunderstood the mentioned (Sys)WOW(64)...
But that's not a "Windows-Simulator".
I was trying to follow the requirements Funky established in his example -
where he didn't use Properties (State) to describe the behaviour of a specific
Instantiation, but "Action-Methods"...
That might serve as a good example for what was mentioned
whilst discussing the pattern-book, further above:
"write simple code, then worry about patterns"
It was possible to do it in that...
Wich is exactly, what I used the term "specific class" for.
Nope, my example is better maintainable - I mean, we have two "original Zips" out there, right?
- the one I've posted:...
You mean "specific Duck-Class" (which my implementation doesn't need at all, to cover the scenario).
Wich would be "hard-coding" as well... (in a specific class, which the example avoids)...
I did so just now - and would place your example definitely in the category "Death by Bad OO".
Sorry, but it's an overengineered mess of too many Classes in a wrongly choosen Pattern.
Nope, not without an expressly given Unique-ID within the surrounding Tags.
In the OPs example there's absolutely *nothing* different in the surrounding
tags, which allows to decide whether...
Not really - it's harder to find Jobs which expressly require VB6-skills these days,
(that said, I've found one though about 2 years ago which asked for exactly that)... ;)
And you should also...
No problem - go on, rationalize away ... ;)
So, "upgrading your App to the 21st century" means only, to give it a more "polished GUI"?
I'll surely do. Just apply a CommonControls-6 resource-manifest to it, and you're already half-way...
Yep - the Web is the only safe bet these days (IMO), with regards to not wasting time
whilst learning something new. Care needs only be taken with regards to your choice of
Well - my (somewhat provocant) question was meant quite seriously...
And the Wikipedia talks about "legacy COMponents"
(Binaries with a Code-Base which is not maintained anymore).
Erm, since you mentioned the term "legacy code" - what is that exactly?
And what language do you use currently, to write "non legacy code"?
See, that kind of bitter emotion, which swings along in your entire post,
made me write the thing about cynicism - which is a certain mind-state - a stance,
from which sarcastic and bitter comments...
In case you're unsure about certain Lib-Versions (and how their default-settings might differ) -
what about choosing a Lib which contains a simple XML-Parser which is stable and unchanging
Then you completely misunderstood what was said above -
and cynicism will surely not help.
But the runtime *is* supported - I thought I already mentioned that ...
Tanner now even gave a...
What's the context your statement refers to... (citation)?
The thread is currently at a point, where Sytten Spinne raised the question:
The novices are the problem, but they don't know better....
What you need to learn a bit more about is, how Computers
(or MicroControllers for that matter) are handling Numbers.
Whole Numbers are called "Integers" in computer-speak - and
these are just...
In case you replied to my previous post - I didn't state anything to the contrary.
Don't know - at the Uni where I was studying 'Electronics', we had C
(in the Classes which focused on...
Glad you figured the usage out so far on your own...
The only thing being - in my Test-Class I used the Class-Names as the first
part of the Prefix-Key, to make it clear which Class in question...
"Truer words were never spoken" - and all that...
You mean, other than pulling your hair out? ;)
Not sure, how "active" you were inside the VB-community to accomplish just that...
Well, since "overboarding OOness" can be considered a weakness as well,
I'd prefer the following, more generic statement instead:
"Any language has small weaknesses, depending on the context and...
I take it, that our two postings overlapped a bit - but note that I also mentioned
(in addition to Optional Params and ParamArrays) a third mechanism -> the ByRef Variants,
which are quite fast...
Thanks for acknowledging at least, that VB6 (which fully supports composition) is:
- "addressing potential complexity early, which is good" ... especailly since ...
- "an application is more likely...
See, that is exactly the kind of "uninformed comparative-statement", many experienced
VB6-Users (or for that matter, "classic-asp developers") will take offense with...
You said, that you have...
I'd introduce a new Method into your cMA-Class, which then can ensure a Serialization "from within".
And to be able to "contribute to some serialized Content", one can use in most simpler...
