    Re: Windows 11 coming soon

    Not sure why you are sharing a URL to what looks like an unofficial copy of the beta when anyone running Windows 10 (even in a VM) can just opt into the Insider Preview and get a completely...

  5. VS 2010 Re: conversion from string " " to type 'Double' is not valid

    If you are calling CDec than you are using doubles, so presumably somewhere you are reading what looks like an empty string, or a single space and trying to convert it to a double - that is what is...
  6. VS 2019 Re: Raising an event when the object is instantiated

    I was working on the assumption of "less bad" rather than anything else :D
  7. VS 2019 Re: Raising an event when the object is instantiated

    That seems an utterly confusing way of doing things! Why have a property that returns true or false and also raise an event? It seems a pointless duplication of effort.

    It might be easier if you...

    Re: Windows 11 coming soon

    The current insider builds are still happily supporting 32 bit code so I can't see it being dropped any time soon. Interestingly they are also supporting graphical Linux apps as well.

  11. Re: showing a form based on value of a string containing the form's name

    Is there a reason you need so many forms? Without really knowing exactly what you are trying to do it is really hard to suggest a decent solution.

    If you really must use strings like this then...

    VS 2019 Re: error using File.Move

    You could wrap the failing code in a try catch block, however you could just check if the filename already exists and then handle that case by using a temp file name.

    VS 2019 Re: error using File.Move

    Although Windows preserves the case of a filename it isn't case sensitive - that means it would see "text1.txt" and "Text1.txt" as the same filename and wouldn't allow the move. Try moving it to a...
