    Re: oscilloscope

    You may need more than VB for a good oscilloscope. The issue is that the sample rate allowable in VB may be too slow to show what you want.
  2. Re: How to write this structure array to file

    Well, you have roughly three alternatives.

    1) Write things line by line. This would result in a compact file, but takes more work and is more likely to break than the other two.

    2) Use XML...
  3. Re: Insanely incredible things read on the interwebtubenets today.

    If you go far enough west, or east, you'll be beside yourself.

    So, we get to see the fat end of the moon. The butt of the moon, as it were. The old man is mooning us.

    Furthermore, a clever algorithm can be exceedingly clever, which can make it quite hard to understand. Fortunately, you don't need to swallow the whole elephant in one bite. Learn what you need to...
  5. Re: I need a vb.net INSERT example to an Access 2007 table example.

    You don't concatenate the parameters into the string, though I certainly understand why you would expect to. They aren't variables, they are placeholders in the string. So, what you have is this (a...
  6. Re: I need a vb.net INSERT example to an Access 2007 table example.

    I seem to remember seeing that you don't HAVE to use ? for parameters in Access. However, it is probably best to use ?, because Access will ignore whatever other names you use. So, if you have a...

    Yeah, Wallace and Gromet proved that years back.

    Re: Get List of SerialPort via VB.Net

    What if you get an exception in that line? All you are doing is ignoring any such exception, so it could be failing with an informative error message (I realize there are not very many informative...
  9. Re: Visual Studio 2015 VB.NET Missing Default Icon !

    I would agree with that, but it does seem reasonable that you could set a default for a project and have it show up automatically for every form in the project, which it apparently does not. I could...
  10. VS 2012 Re: Can someone explain Why this doesn't work all the time.

    There might be a different reason, too. At this point, with the various descriptions, I no longer have a clear view of what is working and what is not. If the code doesn't run from the main form, but...

    Somebody suggested a rule of thumb being 10,000 hours. I have no idea where that came from, though. Frankly, I would say that you should expect to keep learning up until the time you get planted in...
  14. Re: Visual Studio 2015 VB.NET Missing Default Icon !

    I took a look on one installation and wasn't able to find any obvious way to do that. I was assuming that the default icon was just an .ICO file, but I wasn't able to find it on one system. I would...
  15. VS 2012 Re: Can someone explain Why this doesn't work all the time.

    Aside from that, I'm not entirely convinced that the menu option really is working as well as you think it is. Every time you click that, you create a WebClient and hook up a couple handlers. Unless...

    Re: What if there was a NEW vb6

    I certainly think it is worthwhile, but I doubt that a coding contest for a problem like that would show anything at all about the tools used. After all, if submission A used a straight RegEx...
  17. VS 2008 Re: Syntax error in UPDATE statement.

    There are a couple possible reasons. The most likely is that you have a reserved word as a field name. Using fields with names that are real words, such as "password", "name" and "user", is always...

    Re: What if there was a NEW vb6

    Yeah, I see your point there. The Congressional Record is a mess.

    I got thinking a bit more about the contest as a comparative study. It would be a sociology study, which makes me queasy, but it...
  19. VS 2008 Re: syntax error in update and Insert statement - access database

    That doesn't really matter. Parameters work slightly different in Access than they do in SQL, but they are still there. Parameters help in lots of ways. For example, they properly format your inputs...
  20. Re: Visual Studio 2015 VB.NET Missing Default Icon !

    I don't have that icon in VS2010, I have the icon you show in your first image....and I haven't checked 2013 or 2012, though Vexslasher has.

    So, I would say that it is a setting. The icon you are...
  21. Re: Visual Studio 2015 VB.NET Missing Default Icon !

    I'm not sure what problem you are describing. Your screenshot doesn't look unreasonable, so what were you expecting the default icon to be?
  22. Re: How can I draw directly to my desktop

    When it comes to making API calls, VB6 and .NET are VERY similar. One point to remember is that an Integer is only 16 bits in VB6 and 32 in .NET (with a similar difference for the Long data type),...
  23. VS 2010 Re: [RESOLVED] Getting "The calling thread cannot access this object because a differ

    That was what I was talking about, but I wouldn't put it in the close.Click event handler. The form has a FormClosing event, which would be safer. After all, you really NEED that object to close, and...

    Sorry I missed that post. I headed into the woods on that day and just got back. Considering the impressive amount of writing from then until now, I decided not to read all the posts that I missed.

  25. VS 2010 Re: Getting "The calling thread cannot access this object because a different thread

    Ok, so this all gets run when the form loads. I haven't tried that, but if that code is the issue then it is likely to be the Browser object. Are you doing anything to explicitly destroy the Browser...

    Re: What if there was a NEW vb6

    That would be a really interesting test to be able to run. The problem would have to be non-trivial, and the skill levels of the developers would have to be roughly equivalent in the different...

    The validating events are very useful. Events like exit will happen after the user has already left, while Validating events happen before the user has left such that you can prevent them from...

  34. VS 2010 Re: iF...ELSEIF vs SELECT CASE would make a difference in retrieving rows into datagr

    That number of records isn't very many these days, so the cause of the slowdown is not just "it takes a long time to do the search." So, something else is going on. It is possible that it has to do...

    VS 2010 Re: WinForms Security

    There may be differences, but they are insignificant in the long run. Every program can be cracked. That's how it is and that's how it has to be, because the CPU has to have machine code to run, so...
  38. VS 2010 Re: iF...ELSEIF vs SELECT CASE would make a difference in retrieving rows into datagr
