  1. Re: One function to fill different comboBox

    As .Paul. pointed out, there is no need for a dataset, which is nothing more than a collection of datatables. However, I'm not sure that either solution is ideal. Quite often, any table bound to a...
  2. VS 2013 Re: radioButton event only for when it's clicked active? CheckedChanged() event ?

    As a general rule, what you said is correct. However, there is often the kind of efficiency that DDay showed in this case.

    Re: Pandora's Promise

    Geothermal is big out here, but it gets relatively little notice. It's a great source of power where the hot rocks are reasonably close to the surface.

    I like the idea of in-stream generation....
  5. VS 2010 Re: question about a dynamical created textbox

    Because there is no such variable as timeTextBox in any of the examples given. That's the name that you assigned to the textbox, but it is not the name of the variable itself. In the initial example,...

    Re: Hong Kong

    The very peacefulness of the protests are encouraging, at this point, but that hasn't stopped China in the past. Protest is protest, to them. On the other hand, this is HK rather than the mainland,...
  7. VS 2010 Re: question about a dynamical created textbox

    Since the textbox you are creating appears to be a local variable, then outside of that method, the only way to access the textbox would be via the Controls collection that it was added to. In this...

    That line wasn't straight, it bent slightly to the left.

  10. Re: Will Microsoft carry you over the Threshold?

    No, by that logic, the odd numbers should be successes while the even numbers should be flops.

    Ah, that question can be more tricky.

    There are a variety of options that are available, though which will work for you is a bit hard to say. If each form is created as a result of a button click,...

    Re: Very Simple Instr malfunction

    Wow, those are some slow execution times in any case. Is 40-60 seconds acceptable? I see that you might have very little flexibility as to what solutions you are allowed to consider, but would it be...
  21. VS 2010 Re: [RESOLVED] Displaying the data for each second

    One thing you are going to have to do with that code is move the creation of the Random object out of the method. You really need to have only one Random object, and have it at form scope. The reason...

    Re: Duplicate form programatically

    I would suggest a collection of forms. Perhaps a List(of Form1). Whenever you click the button, you create a new form and add it to the list. They will all have to be shown non-modally, as DS showed,...

    VS 2012 Re: String Array to Byte Array conversion

    Generally, you don't need to worry about garbage collection. Once the variable is no longer accessible by any code, it will be recognized as not being needed and will be eligible for garbage...

    What is the meaning of the word: Invalid?

    There are two distinctly different meanings, and which one is correct depends entirely on the context. English is a weird language.

  27. VS 2010 Re: Displaying the data for each second

    Far better to use a timer for this and just add each item in the Tick event of the timer.

    However, the problem you are running into has to do with the controls being painted. Threading.Sleep is...
  28. Re: objCommand.Execute takes incredibly long

    The point JMC is probably getting at is that ADO is old tech. It should probably work ok, but most of us don't have all that much experience with it, and it may be causing some kind of problem, so...

  30. VS 2010 Re: Replacing Elements of An Array with Elements from Another Array (VB.NET)
