    Re: VB.NET 140 Textboxes Numbers Only

    Just dug up an old bit of sample code I threw together a few years ago, it is just another custom textbox.

    You can set the type of content allowed via the AllowedContent property and there is a...

    VS 2008 Re: Can't Dim walls

    Is that the exact code giving the error and the exact error message? Seems strange the error message refers to "wall" but nowhere in the line of code you posted do you have anything declared as...
  3. Re: Change the source code of the .Net4.8 framework from C# to VB.NET

    You could always try something like https://github.com/dnSpyEx to reverse engineer the compiled assemblies into vb.net, no idea how useful the reverse engineered code would be without comments etc.

  6. Re: Need help with Windows Photos application please.

    Not sure about windows 10, but on Windows 11 there is a Video Editor App included. Try clicking the start button and typing "Video Editor" and see what comes up.
  7. Re: How to change properties of added control in table layout panel

    Presumably the third one isn't working because the three columns can't take up 150% of the remaining space.

    10Kb, why do that when you can store an entire mkv file in 10 bytes https://www.vbforums.com/showthread.php?867745-Look-what-ThEiMp-has-done&p=5331577&viewfull=1#post5331577

    By definition scaling down is a lossy operation, if you have fewer pixels then you can't have as much information visible as when you had more pixels.

  11. Re: Date Format in SQL string

    A better option would be to use a parameterised query, not string concatenation. Parameters remove this problem entirely as well as being more secure.

    Re: Can't get pinged IP, Its name

    looking at the documentation, and given the name being DNS, this method performs a DNS lookup on the address / ipaddress. That means if there is no DNS entry for the hostname / ipaddress then it will...

    In that case Option Strict On was pointing out the error at compile time, rather than crashing at runtime - it is rarely a good idea to disable Option Strict when it is pointing out errors, the...

    Re: Can't get pinged IP, Its name

    Dns.EndGetHostEntry doesn't take an up address, it is part of the older async way of doing things. Is there a GetHostEntry method?

    Also do you have Option Strict On set?
  18. Re: Not a valid Win32, HRESULT: 0x800700C1

    If it needs to run as a 32-bit application, then you could target x86 rather than any cpu - that way it will only ever run as a 32-bit application.

    However looking at the error message it does...
  19. Re: Why are my buttons not anywhere on the screen ?

  20. Re: Why are my buttons not anywhere on the screen ?

    If you are adding buttons to a panel then the location is relative to the panel, you don't need to calculate the panel's position on the screen as the basis for the button location. If the panel is...
  21. Re: Option Strict On disallows implicit conversions from 'String' to 'Char'.

    "," is a string because of the double quotes. Try ","c to declare it as a character literal.

  24. Re: Record not being updated - No errors or exceptions

    It is possibly down to some of the values being strings but not enclosed in quotes.

    Re: How can I create a for loop?

    So what exactly does "didn't work" mean? Did it crash? Give the wrong answer (what did you get compared to what you expected)? Cause the computer to burst into flames?

  27. Re: Why are my controls not being disposed ?

    Remove then from the controls collection might do it. Not sure if you would need to remove any event handlers as well or not.
  28. Re: Why are my controls not being disposed ?

    Dispose doesn't destroy the object, it simply calls a function intended to clean up the object's unmanaged resources.

    That seems really messy and confusing code. It is calling ToString on a .Text property that is already a string, it doesn't have Option Strict set either.
