    Re: Post Race!

    I live in a desert. Yesterday had a forecast that said a 100% chance of rain. In many places, that would mean that it was going to rain all, or most of, the day. Out here, though, that meant that the...

    Re: Post Race!

    So, it's a cold and blustery day out here, perfect for trimming the hedges. The reason I wait for a cold day in fall (blustery is not a requirement) is that there are a LOT of wasps that build small...

    I expect that ANY such thing would necessarily have to be full of assumptions. It didn't look like fiction, to me, just an interpretation of data that, itself, is...
  4. VS 2019 Re: [RESOLVED] Assigning values to properties

    Yeah, I was a bit surprised, too. On further thought, I believe that the reason is a combination of a couple of things. One is that I use both 2010 (still has both), and 2017 (does not). In 2010,...
  5. VS 2019 Re: [RESOLVED] Assigning values to properties

    Until this thread came up, I didn't realize that the second option for Intellisense had been removed. I almost always used that most common set, because it really was what you were likely to want....
  6. Re: VB NET QUESTION: Suitability for VB.NET to create such a program?

    I would say that the answer is kind of yes and kind of no. Standard .NET can do quite a bit with graphics, right up to the point where it can't. I ran into this with a highly graphical program. GDI...

    Re: VB Layout

    You would probably find it instructive to take a look at the .designer.vb file that accompanies all forms. It may be hidden by default, so ShowAllFiles may be required just to see it.

  10. VS 2019 Re: Assigning values to properties

    That was why I mentioned that bit about Intellisense being broken. You probably wouldn't have been offered that in earlier versions of VS.

    I totally agree with that idea. It wouldn't have been very difficult for them to do, either. After all, they had to override the default .ToString just for you to get the value you are seeing, so...

    Thanks, that confirms my thinking on the subject. Removing the index would be instructive, and I'll give it a try. Can't say anything about what index I expected to use, though, cause I didn't expect...
  13. VS 2019 Re: Assigning values to properties

    Frankly, I feel that this is a case of whoever wrote the chart using a poor choice of name for the property. I would expect that property to take a Boolean, just like you did. In fact, it clearly...

    Re: The problem with Dating

    Yes, and it's likely to be faster. If you have dates in a text file, convert them to Date objects rather than converting the Date objects to strings and comparing that way. Not only does that get...

    Another way to put it is that a Date is a structure. Like most structures, it has a series of fields. You can see those fields, but the key fields are year, month, day, hour, minute, and second....

    We have a database with a few decades worth or data in it. Might be a thousand records per year, or so, but it barely matters for this question.

  29. Re: Any other language environments as easy to use and robust as VB6?

    Totally agree. It's either that or they see HTML as the pinnacle of UI development. To some extent, I see their point, as Windows Forms has limits to what can be done easily, and HTML does have loads...
