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

    That's what I would say, too, except that, at least in Idaho, the vaccination rate has been slowly increasing. We were following a curve that looked likely to plateau below 40%, but starting at the...
  2. Re: VB Forms issue- Visual Studio Community Edition, 2019

    It's there. It's the Form1.designer.vb file.

    All the form designer does is provides you a GUI for manipulating that file. All the code that is in that file is what is used to show your GUI, so as...
  3. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Yeah, no kidding. I live here and don't understand it.

    In Idaho, what you are seeing is a state with very little vaccination that is trying to pretend that it is fully vaccinated. You might say...

    VS 2019 Re: How do I open a class's code editor?

    The other reason that they might just be talking about left and right is that there were only two for many versions of VS. I forget when the third drop down was added, but there were only two through...

    Yeah, that's true.

    If you had 1000 people working to keep VB6 up to date, then it would be up to date.....well, no, actually it wouldn't be. I forgot that 1000 developers can't produce ANYTHING....

    Could Not Load File Or Assembly

    I'm getting this exception in designer code for one case. The file it can't load is System.XmlSerializers.

    This has no impact on anything, and since I don't write Settings.Designer.vb, this is...
  11. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Yes, that statement is being made a LOT in the US, but our vaccination rates are highly variable. You hear that statement plenty in Idaho, but we have one of the lowest vaccination rates in the...

  14. 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....
  15. 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 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...
