  2. VS 2008 Re: how do I display hex in a rich textbox

    I'm guessing that AscW would work but you shouldn't write VB6 code in VB.NET anyway. If you want to turn a Char into a hex String then do it like this:

  3. VS 2019 Re: All Data Grid View Rows to DataGridViewSelectedRowCollection

    No there isn't. The DataGridViewSelectedRowCollection is specifically the type that is exposed via the SelectedRows property of a DataGridView. It doesn't even have a public constructor, so you can't...

    You may have been speaking tongue-in-cheek there but, in case not, I didn't mean that I was OK with being tested myself instead of being vaccinated. Rather, I meant that, in places where it was...
