  1. Re: Convert from 24hr time in db to 12hr time in program

    My quibble with that is the use of a variable named dateTime. A name that isn't also a data type would reduce confusion.

  11. Re: Is there any way to creat a multidimensional array in my data object

    You don't need the '0 to' part. All arrays in .NET start at 0. Some people prefer to see that, but most don't. It makes no difference to the code.

    Be as specific as you can. If it should be an...

    Well, that's the most partisan way to look at it.

    So, the new guidance is that those who are fully vaccinated don't need to wear masks. Would you prefer that they suppress that? Wouldn't that just...
