    Had you decided to invest heavily in superglue, you'd have found the decision easier to stick to.

    It should.

    By the way, you don't have to do squat for the Bing maps. Over in the CodeBank I have posted the total source code for the dll I am using. This puts a map into a standard window using...

    Re: VB Control Array Solution

    There are other options to consider, as well. Arrays are pretty standard stuff that have been around forever. Another option that you might consider would be a Dictionary (of something, Picturebox)....

    You might consider just going to 2013 Professional, which happens to be the free version (I forget the name, something like Community Edition).

    Re: Post Race!

    $ was used as a string from early in BASIC. It still seems like a stupid idea, but it is certainly historic.
  15. Re: How to convert from character or string to object name

    That's the same code I suggested, too.

    You really don't want to be going from the name back to the control, though it is technically possible to do so. When you have this:

    VS 2010 Re: BLOB Data Issues

    There may not be a more efficient way to do it. A BLOB is never going to be all that efficient, as it's a big, amorphous, mass of bytes. Depending on what the BLOB is, you might serialize it to a...
  18. Re: How to convert from character or string to object name

    That's not really going to work, at least not quite as you have it written. After all, the name is just a string, but the parent is what you want. How would this work:

    I'd suggest looking at UDP. The main app could simply be waiting for UDP messages, which could be as simple as a single integer value. The handling could be something like:

  22. Re: Code Missing but form still runs... How can that be possible

    I agree with wes4dbt. All the control creation, positioning, and property settings are found in the .designer.vb file. What is in the other file is all the code that you wrote by hand.

    It should be the same size, but it shouldn't have any data with just this line:

    After all, this part:

    VS 2012 Re: Help with Threading | Beginner

  27. VS 2008 Re: Whats wrong with this class that connects to Mysql DB?

    That is an interesting case.

    So, how is the performance? One of the things in ADO is the idea that you connect, fill a datatable with some stuff and disconnect. Then you work with the datatables...
  28. VS 2008 Re: Is there a way to Change only the system date and not the time or the second

    That doesn't sound like the system date anyways, that sounds like a file datestamp. While a datestamp would come from the system time, it isn't really related to changing the system date unless you...
  29. Re: Code Missing but form still runs... How can that be possible

    Well, let's cover the obvious question first: Was there something more in the code file than what you just showed at some earlier time?

  30. Re: VS 2013 Community Version Project Settings Question
