    Re: Error when saving SQL view

    I think that you mean "delimited" rather than "delaminated". The latter would mean something with the outer layer stripped off.

    Re: Will VS.net compile down to a .dll

    It's not something that I have ever done, so I can't provide all the details, but the answer is basically "yes". You can't create actual COM objects but you can create .NET assemblies that are...

  9. VS 2013 Re: Create a ListView with Search using Excel Table

    There are numerous ways to read XML in .NET. That option is creating an XmlReader, so invoking yet another overload of ReadXml. Whether you use a StringReader or an XmlReader, be sure to dispose it...

    I don't think that you were even you to begin with. I think that you have been masquerading as you from the start. Cats can sense these things and your avatar obviously knows that you're shifty.
  21. VS 2019 Re: Issue with DataGridView RowValidating() event.

    Again, you shouldn't be formatting code like that. That means that your cells contain text rather than numbers. You should be putting numbers into the cells and letting the grid take care of the...

  25. Re: solution Character is not valid in vb.net

    You don't even need to call String.Format. As I already said, Console.WriteLine already has composite formatting built in.

    Re: Problem with random.

    You do know the difference between local variables and member variables (fields), right? If you declare a variable in a method then of course you can't access it outside that method.
  30. VS 2013 Re: Create a ListView with Search using Excel Table

    Be careful with the term "resource" because a resource is something specific and that is data compiled into the assembly. By definition, there is no such thing as an external resource.

    In order to...

  32. VS 2013 Re: Create a ListView with Search using Excel Table

    The ListView doesn't support data-binding but I suspect that it's the wrong control anyway. It's not a grid control. Use a DataGridView. Populate a DataTable, which you can do using ADO.NET and the...
  33. Re: solution Character is not valid in vb.net

    The line you highlighted is using string interpolation, which is basically native language support for composite formatting. That was introduced in (I think) VB 2015, or it may have been 2017. Either...
