    Re: Post Race!

    It's a warm weekend, out here. Dry, too. That seems unlikely to last.
  2. Re: Work with the application each time with a different comoboxvalue

    Put a breakpoint on the line that causes the exception, or a line just before that. Run until the breakpoint is reached. At that point, you can see all the values in all the objects on that line....
  3. Re: Work with the application each time with a different comoboxvalue

    You're also wrong. This is one of the easiest problems to solve. When you get that particular error, some object on the line that is throwing the exception is Nothing. Once you find that thing,...

    That's not the way it works. Stick with the thread you already have open.

    That report starts with crap, continues with crap, and ends with crap. First off, they start with a nonsense statement about the low number of COVID deaths in the US. The official count is nearly...

    That would be a pretty excessive extrapolation. As it stands, in the US, there ARE vaccination requirements to attend public school, but they aren't every year. To get to the extreme extrapolation...

    I have had the Pro 2 since I went on a long bike ride several years ago. It always had a few drawbacks, but I wasn't using it enough to justify upgrading, and every version kept getting better. This...

    I've eaten some lichen. I wasn't lichen it too much, though. You can eat the lichen called 'rock tripe'. It has an earthy taste, and isn't very filling, nor would it make much of a garnish on things....

  13. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    That isn't fixed in VS, it's still there. You've just managed to check, or uncheck, some setting to turn it off. I believe I complained about this in a .NET thread back when I first moved to 2019. It...

  19. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Probably because of your background. I remember thinking that intellisense was worthless when I was working in VB6. For that reason, I was also turning it off when I started in .NET, because it had...

  24. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    I'm not saying it's GOOD, I'm saying it is voluminous. Well, I guess that IS a word, I wasn't sure.

    What it ends up being is a mix of documentation and a record of how a design evolved over time.

    What tools have you used? I haven't heard of anything other than the one that came with VS up through 2008. I think I've heard rumors of others, just never anything specific.
