    Re: Speed up the form load

    What's the point of a combo box with 10000 entries? Nobody can search through them. I would guess that you are intending to use autocomplete, or some such, to narrow the choices down, but since it is...
  2. Re: How do I declare a class for which the type is stored in a string?

    I tend to prefer binary serialization. The main difference between the two is that a class serialized as binary is a smaller file that can't be edited using a text editor. There are a few other...

    Re: Help me with this code.

    You're going to have several problems with that code. I'd suggest that you switch to using NumericUpDown controls rather than textboxes. Textboxes accept strings, so a person could enter pretty...
  5. Re: Moving Tables from one instance of SQL Server to another via USB

    That took a bit of exploration. I don't have the screen quite as Dee-U shows it, so he's probably using a different version of SQL Server. In my case, I had to set the Script option to either Data or...
  6. Re: Self-Directed Learning for the Complete Beginner: Books and Web Resources

    Lots of us, myself included, have never taken a course in anything computer related. Books are a good way to start out, in my opinion. There are lots of tutorials on web sites, but I find that they...
  7. Re: Moving Tables from one instance of SQL Server to another via USB

    After thinking about it a bit, I realized that ultimately I need much more control than just moving data around, so I will be creating a tool to allow more flexibility/selectivity in the tables based...

    VS 2008 Re: Suggestion about String handler

    The data structure you use probably won't matter all that much in this. String manipulation itself is slow for a variety of reasons, and manipulating an enormous string is likely to be even slower....

  11. Re: [RESOLVED] Check if form contains a Control (button) by tag and/or text

    I would say: Go ahead and turn it on. I wrote some fairly big projects with it off, prior to understanding the benefit. When I then turned it on....well, that was a depressing number of errors....
  12. Re: Check if form contains a Control (button) by tag and/or text

    I thought I'd be too slow with that response, but I wanted to explain it more thoroughly. I wrote a math-heavy program with Option Strict OFF and using LOTS of implicit conversions. Turning Option...

    DO turn it on and leave it on. Those errors you got are real. They may not have caused you trouble yet, and some of them may never cause you trouble, but they are real issues that will impact your...

    Re: Major security flaw in TSA Software

    I've always wanted to, but where I grew up a guy would starve to death waiting for one to show. There were some tracks, and they were used, but it was about once a month, or so. Now I'm close to the...

  16. Re: Change color of a progressbar &H410 ???

    That is just weird. The param is an integer variable, so it could hold a full ARGB color, yet there is an enum that uses 1, 2, and 3 for Green, Red, and Yellow? That seems like a really strange...
  17. Re: [RESOLVED] Check if form contains a Control (button) by tag and/or text

    And Option Strict should always be on (except for those rare cases where it can't be), whether or not this code proves that it is not.

    Re: New VB Express 2010 questions

    It's not what I would use, but it is probably the easiest thing to do. What I don't like about that is that it seems like it causes trouble for people down the road when they have a local database...
  20. Re: The easiest way to not use parallel array ?

    Well, a bitmap is pretty much just the .bmp, though there were other types of bitmaps that appear to have gone away, or something. In any case, it may not be helpful to point out, but you can think...

    VS 2008 Re: [RESOLVED] Remove Collection Item

    It's one of those things like the ArrayList. It was all you had at one time, but there were drawbacks. In both cases the main problem I saw was that the collection was not typed, so you could do all...

    Re: Major security flaw in TSA Software

    I agree with homer. The TSA, at the airports, is fake security. They may do other jobs that are less well known, much as the Secret Service does, but...I don't know of them.

    Not what I expected. You are using the default instance in both cases, but you are also using .Show, which suggests that the form is going to remain visible.
