  1. Re: Is creating subroutines instead of nested ifs a waste or inefficient.

    The technical answer is that it IS ever so slightly less efficient. However, I totally agree with DDay as to the benefits of breaking up the code. Working with one large blob of code is much harder...
  2. Re: Microsoft SQL Server folder not present in Program Files on Win7 Home Premium com

    You don't already have it? I haven't heard of that one, but if you have SQL Server on your development computer, I would have thought you would have it already...somewhere.

    Re: Multithreading many times.

    Oh yes! Multithreading isn't magic. There is a cost to switching between threads, since each thread has to load it's context into the CPU when it gets a slice of time. As long as you have no more...
  4. Re: how do you delete a thread on this forum?

    I found a variety of definitions of bord, including a face of a coal seam, and "on the edge of". That suggests that you can be bored on board the bord of a board.

  6. Re: Windows 8.1 users: Visual studio 2013 design rendering issues

    Hunh. I'll have to look into that a bit more. I was seeing some odd behavior with a form on a Win8.1 Surface Pro, though not exactly the behavior described. The form looked fine, it was just...

    Re: Post Race!

    Ok, so what does LUA actually mean/stand for/derive from, or whatever? I realize I could probably find out through Google in a few seconds, but I only care enough to post in the Post Race.
  8. Re: Microsoft SQL Server folder not present in Program Files on Win7 Home Premium com

    You set a reference in the application? If so, click on the reference and look at the properties for it. There is one called something like Copy Local. Setting that to True may be all you need.

  9. VS 2010 Re: Problem With Percentages In Access Database?

    It sounds like they are actually holding decimal values internally, but since you set a format of Percent, what you see is the value * 100. Therefore, 1 * 100 is shown as 100, but it is still just 1....

    It does sound like you're talking about getting into polling. Funky was suggesting polling strippers, which could be a clothes call with your dollars.

    It may or may not be shown on the form, depending on where you mean, and depending on other settings, such as the control box.

    Without digging into it too much, that looks like a thread scheduler something like the thread pool, only a bit less efficient.

    Re: Explain this code Ado and DataSet1

    There isn't much of a relationship between the two. The dataset ds is the actual dataset that has the data in it. When creating a report, you can assign a name to the dataset other than the variable...

    Re: Restrict app use once a month

    Do you trust the users, or do they have some incentive to cheat the system?

    The reason I ask is that you can probably use simpler designs if you trust them not to circumvent simpler designs.

  22. Re: I am having issues upload attachments

    The file you are trying to upload, if I understand it right from your thread in the .NET forum, is a power point slide deck. How big is it?
  23. VS 2010 Re: When you begin creating an application, what........

    You want to upload a power point slide deck? That may not be a recognized type, but even if it is....wouldn't that tend to be HUGE? What would you expect people to do with it?
