  1. Re: What am I doing wrong delegate label, not updating once I moved functions and sub

    I'll expand a bit on pauls question, because it is virtually certain that MainWindow is a default instance, and it is likely that such is your problem...one way or another. After all, you said it was...

    VS 2013 Re: How to make this code run

    That's ok. I'm not really here anyways. Just as baffled about the actual problem, though.
  4. Re: Boot Race. Like post race but completely different.

    I'm riding the length of Idaho without touching the one highway that goes that distance. That means mostly Forest Service gravel roads. Should be interesting. Gotta go pack now.

  6. Re: Boot Race. Like post race but completely different.

    I have decided that I don't have time. I managed to spend most of this afternoon building a device to measure the temperature of my bike brakes and turn on an LED when they get above some temperature...

    VS 2010 Re: iteration through background workers

    Frankly, I'd move away from BGW entirely. The BGW was added as a convenient tool for running one background process. You can certainly create a bunch of them, as you have, but at that point, it seems...

    Re: Haskell

    Oddly, none of my fisheries classes were taught in C.....perhaps it was because I was in a landlocked state?

    Why else?

    Actually, I had a terrible head cold at the time and was quite congested. I thought the pepper would clear my head, but it didn't.
  10. Re: How to compile windows app to make exe file including all dll files?

    Why not just move the dlls along with the exe? If you look at most of your application folders you will find dlls. There's a reason that they were split out. It is often not a very essential reason,...

    VS 2010 Re: iteration through background workers

    One point I would make is that if you are doing each of these on it's own thread, then why bother with a limit of 20? Just because you have 20 tasks (Tasks are another alternate approach you could...

    Re: Zero-length or Nothing

    I also see that it is insensitive to culture. They really should be more sensitive, don't you think? Heck, it's running on a PC, right?

    I suppose this might just be another nod to VB6 backwards...

    Hmmm, I'd have to try that on my Surface Pro. The times look about the same, though.

    Re: Haskell

    I always thought that was one of the Great Old Ones, similar to Cthulhu. I've never tried the language because I was always afraid that I'd draw the elder sign incorrectly.

    Better to post the relevant code wrapped in code tags rather than the whole mass, but it looks like a few people have taken a look, so it might work out.
  16. Re: What Software dev projects to build more skills?

    The differences between VB and C# are not great. The biggest difference is in the syntax, but as far as features are concerned, MS tried to converge the two languages beginning with the 2005 version...

    I'm much less certain that this has anything to do with the serial port, especially not with the port object. If it was "getting stuck" the internet would be filled with stuff about that, but it...

    Re: Zero-length or Nothing

    It's probably just that the = operator is overloaded for the String class in an odd way such that Nothing is evaluated as String.Empty. That would be a shared method, so the compiler wouldn't...

    Re: Zero-length or Nothing

    By the way, I tried out the test I suggested in post #4, and got what I expected, though I don't think it is the way it should be. In that test, I have a function that returns Nothing. Therefore, st1...

    Enforcement pepper spray is 5% capcasin, and has a pretty short range. Bear spray, on the other hand, is 20% capsasin and can shoot a cloud 20 feet....

  25. VS 2010 Re: More help needed to add options to RANDOM NUMBER GENERATOR app

    Where did you put that line? With Dim, it would suggest that it was a local variable (inside a method). You want it to be a form level variable. It probably won't matter in this case, since people...
  26. VS 2012 Re: Dynamic Creation of Multiple Events for Dynamically Created Control

    For that matter, the event handlers are only wired up for ThemeModeChosen = 2, as the ThemeModeChosen = 1 is empty.

    Good thing that part of you is growing up.

  29. VS 2012 Re: Dynamic Creation of Multiple Events for Dynamically Created Control

    So, it IS in the Load event. Is that Catch block truly empty? That could be your problem. As you may or may not know, on an increasing number of OS (64-bit, only, I believe), an exception thrown in...

    Re: Zero-length or Nothing

    To me, a return of Nothing is only used in the case where "no possible answer of any sort would be correct." I generally don't use that for strings, but do use it for methods that return objects when...

  33. VS 2012 Re: Dynamic Creation of Multiple Events for Dynamically Created Control

    Ok, an auto-formatting textbox. But what happens on a copy/paste? You get the Textchanged event, but not the KeyPress Event...I think.

    Still, that's beside the point. You may want to post the code...

  38. VS 2012 Re: Dynamic Creation of Multiple Events for Dynamically Created Control

    One thing I'd point out is that the code may not work even if the events were working right. It'll work fine if the user is typing into the textbox, but copy/paste may not trigger the events anyways....
