    Re: Azure DevOps vs GitHub

    Typically both GitHub and Azure Devops will only require your firewalls to allow outbound https, although if you don't want to be hosting your source code out on the internet neither of those might...

    Re: When opening a file in Notepad

    Not really sure what you mean by "extract the binary code of a file", a file is nothing more than a collection of bytes. You can just read the bytes as Niya describes above.

    Re: When opening a file in Notepad

    Are you looking at a way of transferring files between two computers? I am not entirely sure what you mean by extracting code for a specific file (DeCompiler) and then compiling it again.

    Re: Azure DevOps vs GitHub

    Azure Devops will be free for up to 5 users, that also gives you unlimited git repos / projects and you can also use TFS in the cloud if you are happy with TFS and don't want to move to git (although...

    You could create a UserControl for each related set of controls, that way you would only need to add or remove a UserControl to the panel when the selection changes. a USerControl would also allow...

    Does the exception have any detail in it's error message or inner exception as to which file wasn't found?

  7. Re: How soon may I have to give up VB.net (and VB6)?

    I would say VB.Net not getting things like Blazor is entirely down to the VB.Net community, historically they have always seemed reluctant to move to newer technologies. This is one of the reasons in...

    Re: conversion of an data array to list

    Would you be searching the data by any of the columns or by the same specific column? If it is the same column then it might be worth creating a class to hold the 3 fields as properties and store the...

    VB.Net has a similar idea using Tuples behind the scenes

    It makes you responsible for promoting and spreading antivax rhetoric you source from known antivax websites that are poorly researched and also promote the more insane antivax theories. It makes you...
  12. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Not worth arguing with him, in the past he has used articles from a website that used covid vaccines, nanotechnology, and 5G in the same article. Any factual source of information is to be considered...

    I applaud you efforts in proving your case with statistics and evidence.

    280,000 per billion compared to 600,000 per 350 million, despite the fact the number 280,000 doesn't seem to have any basis in reality.

  18. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

  21. Re: Setting Properties When Passing Objects (Comparing Advantages / Disadvantages)

    I completely agree. I would always tend towards writing code that is clear and maintainable**. If performance testing highlights an issue then I will look at writing code in a more optimised fashion....

  23. Re: Setting Properties When Passing Objects (Comparing Advantages / Disadvantages)

    Just as a quick example.... If you declare two arrays they will have memory allocated to them. This memory is normally accessed in chunks (called pages). Typically an array will require a contiguous...
  24. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Or add one too many... more than once I ended up fixing bugs in C caused by code similar to

  25. Re: Why can't Enum of VB6 be a string?

    An Enum is just an enumerated type, they are really nothing more than a numeric constant under the hood. The idea is that they make it easier to either auto assign numeric constants when you don't...
  26. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Playing around with some Linq / non-linq benchmarking on my local PC and there is indeed a performance difference.

  27. Re: System.InvalidCastException: System.Data.SQLite.SQLiteDataReader cast to byte[]

    You need to check if the column is null, not the reader itself.
  28. Re: I think VB6 is much a better tool/language than VB.NET

    And in another, more accurate, way they aren't trivial.
  29. Re: I think VB6 is much a better tool/language than VB.NET

    Somethings don't require a lot of words though, they just require more than "trivial". You can't even refute one single point out of that list I made from a technical point of view, you just wave...
  30. Re: I think VB6 is much a better tool/language than VB.NET

    I would like you to actually back up your claims that everything I mentioned above are "trivial" with some technical reasons rather than just an outright dismissal.

    I would like you to actually...
  31. Re: I think VB6 is much a better tool/language than VB.NET

    Unfortunately just sweeping things away and changing the argument seems to be his entire approach to this, there certainly seems to be no actual desire to consider things from a technical point of...
  32. Re: I think VB6 is much a better tool/language than VB.NET

    As expected, I make several points and you dismiss them out of hand with no justification other than a personal opinion with absolutely no technical reasoning whatsoever.

    Have you ever written...
  33. Re: I think VB6 is much a better tool/language than VB.NET

    Here are a few features that are included in .Net for desktop development that immediately spring to mind. This is not an exhaustive list and this is all standard, .Net provided functionality.

  34. Re: I think VB6 is much a better tool/language than VB.NET

    You originally asked for an example of complex software written in .Net. The fact you cannot use one example I gave to develop another IDE was not your original claim. You never said you wanted an...
  35. Re: I think VB6 is much a better tool/language than VB.NET

    So show me an example of a complex IDE written in VB6. You asked for examples of complex software, SharpDevelop is such an example. The fact you spent 10 minutes looking at it and dismissed the...
  36. Re: I think VB6 is much a better tool/language than VB.NET

    You are deliberately changing your arguments. You originally asked for examples of complex software written in .Net, I simply suggested SharpDevelop because it is a fairly complex piece of software...
  37. Re: I think VB6 is much a better tool/language than VB.NET

    You are probably right :) I know I shouldn't rise to these things, arguing on the internet is rarely productive. I just love the way SDO throws out a challenge, changes the rules when presented with...
  38. Re: I think VB6 is much a better tool/language than VB.NET

    So VB6-IDE is complex, but SharpDevelop is less complex, despite SharpDevelop doing pretty much everything the VB6 IDE does (code editing, intellisense, debugging, forms designers, extensibility...
  39. Re: I think VB6 is much a better tool/language than VB.NET
