  1. Re: VB6 vs .NET differences ... IDE, libraries, functionality, whatever

    I just realized that Moti was trying to make an artificial girlfriend with Yotamaker. Had he turned that into a library, it could have been called Womans lib.

    I put up a form that cycles through all the colors, but for that to work, the long running code has to be running in a different thread, or has to raise events periodically.

    What you are wanting to happen is normally the default behavior, so something is a bit odd.

    I haven't used the textFieldParser approach. I'd be inclined to just read in the string, Split on ","c. This would create an array of strings, and you'd want the fourth element of the array.
