  1. Re: Basic question about how distributed control systems like Git work.

    Yeah, that sounds pretty complicated but hopefully once I start using it, it'll make more sense. There's only 2 of us and we rarely work on each other's code so it shouldn't be too tough.

    Thanks!
  2. Re: Basic question about how distributed control systems like Git work.

    Merging seems dangerous, that must be a really smart system.

    Thanks!
  3. Basic question about how distributed control systems like Git work.

    I'm about to start using GitHub but I'm confused about how a distributed control system works.

  4. How to use model for multiple lists of data

    What's the best way to pass multiple lists of data to a view? I saw someone answer the question on another site and they said to use the model for one list and ViewData for the other. That seems...
  5. Best practice for populating model data

    I'm using VS2019 with ASP.NET MVC. I just started learning MVC.

    I have a generic list of objects to hold a recordset in my model like this:

  6. Re: SSIS, SSRS vs coding it yourself in VB or C#.

    This is really good information. I hope you don't mind if I ask a few more dumb questions, I just want to be a little more sure SSIS and SSRS will work for me before I start using it, although I...
  7. Re: SSIS, SSRS vs coding it yourself in VB or C#.

    Good points. As soon as I get access to SSIS I want to test it to see how it compares speed wise to SqlBulkCopy, I'm guessing they both use the same underlying technology.

    I have a related...

  9. Re: What data does the Background Worker have access to?

    Ok, that makes sense. You still have access to all variables in scope but you don't want to be messing around with them at the same time.

    Maybe the best way would be to just pass in everything you...
  10. What data does the Background Worker have access to?

  11. Re: What is the purpose of the base "object" class?

    True. That was a bad example. Actually what make sense to me is to have limited syntax and an unlimited library.

    I think what bothers me is all the syntax exceptions.

    For example I just hit...
  12. Re: What is the purpose of the base "object" class?

    Yeah, it's a trade off when you're adding features. At first you're adding stuff that's critical but at some point it becomes over complicated. It's true that you don't have to use the extra stuff,...

    We've got a dilemma. We decided to use Web Forms instead of MVC thinking it would be faster to get up and running since we are familiar with Windows Forms. I spent the last week learning HTML and CSS...

  22. Re: Can I set up my PC as a web server on our LAN?

    I found that site also but I couldn't connect to it. I thought maybe I could use iis express since it was already part of VS. I'm sorry I asked the question.

    Re: Win Forms vs Web Forms

    Our webserver won't be exposed externally so we don't have to worry about security. But to me that wipes out the biggest advantage of a web app, that you can access it from anywhere.

    Win Forms vs Web Forms

  29. Re: Beginner question about placing buttons on a form.

    Does anybody ever use the "form designing tools" to drag controls onto the form and move things around like in a Windows Forms app? As far as I can tell it's pretty useless.

    Does that work like that in all cases? I don't have VS here so I can't test it.

    Object o = new Object();
