  1. Re: How can I create an executable app within an app

    No not implying that at all. I was suggesting that you might be trying to create a generator, and my experience with those has been that they are more trouble than they are worth.

    However, with...

    Re: RowHeight in MsFlexGrid

    Posting a link to a program in a zip file from an unknown site is not a good idea. It really isn't a good idea for somebody to run such a thing. If you have a working example, remove any compiled...

    And with all that, nobody has yet knocked off the king.

    It just goes to show how incredibly prolific some of the early Post Racers were.
  4. Re: How can I create an executable app within an app

    I'm inclined to say that if you explained what your ultimate goal was, I'd discourage you from trying. There are narrow domains where this approach works well, but there are even more idealistic...

    I think you'd have to be VERY selective about what you were targeting. Your suggestion seems like it might be a good choice for such an item. What you need is something where the demand is not very...

    By the way, you should have some fascinating crayfish around you. With that brook in your back...

    I've gone back and forth on this one. In general, calling MyBase.Dispose seems like it would be safest, but I'm not sure what it would do. For example, had you just implemented the IDataReader and...

    Overall, I'd say that a guaranteed minimum income would be a better solution, but it's not really on the table. Instead, we have a patchwork. That minimum wage rise may be what's possible, or it may...

    The problem I have with that minimum wage is that it is one size fits all. You likely can't live in New York City on $15/hour, yet that is also the median wage in the state of Mississippi (my mother...
  19. VS 2010 Re: Incremental generation is slow even for small values

    I was going to say the same thing.

    String concatenation is far slower than you might expect. Strings can't change size, so every time you use += (&= would be better, but the same speed), you are...
  20. VS 2012 Re: [RESOLVED] Want to hijack a SqlDataReader class so it can be sourced from multipl

    I haven't tried that, but I did try the IDataReader, and I believe it automatically includes IDisposable. If your class doesn't implement IDisposable, it probably should, if only to call the base...

    But you'd only need to implement those pieces you are using, which sounds like a distinct minority of the methods.
