  1. Re: How to disable mouse and keyboard for 10 seconds

    Why would you want to do this? Clearly, there's a problem, since you have a hotkey combination that won't work if the keyboard is disabled. Also, you guarantee that everybody will hate your program....

    Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    The color would match my banana costume.
  3. Re: Hong Kong, Portland and the Moral Low Ground

    Yeah, I'm kind of thinking that you're doing the same, too. It's opinion. The facts get spun one way or the other, depending on your point of view. There is no objective truth that anyone seems to...
  4. Re: Hong Kong, Portland and the Moral Low Ground

    Probably not, really. Since the whole thing was political, doing something like that would have had a thoroughly negative political consequence. It likely would have reinforced Trump's base, but his...
  5. Re: Hong Kong, Portland and the Moral Low Ground

    The difference (hopefully) is that their pants aren't held together with velcro.

    Re: Catching an event in a serice

    Yeah, but THAT's what you want to do. I don't think that catching mouse events is a good stand in. Most mouse events are user actions that go straight to a program. You're talking about power...
  7. Re: Hong Kong, Portland and the Moral Low Ground

    Yeah, that's my point, too. Bored.

    Actually, I meant the other point. You see it in this thread. When you look at Portland, everything is seen through a prism. Everybody has a different prism to...

    Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    I thought I had one plant of full size tomatoes, and two of cherry tomatoes. Turns out, I planted three of cherry tomatoes.

    I expected them to spread more. They are in the shady bed, though, so...

    Re: Catching an event in a serice

    This is something running in the background, right?

    Mouse clicks may be easier/faster, but I'm not sure that they are a good stand-in for a power event. Mouse clicks would be system messages, and...
  10. Re: Save All Data in Datagridview to Access DB

    You could add the data to a datatable about as easily as adding it to a DGV, then have the datatable bound to the DGV. The advantage of doing that would be that pushing the datatable to an Access...

    Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    I'm not serious. At least I try not to be.

    I installed a bunch of raised beds this spring for weed control. That gives me specific sizing for growing things. One bed for this, one bed for that....

    Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    I just planted a second crop of beans. I've been really liking the beans I got out of the first crop, but they're running out. Only a few more meals then they'll be done. You might even say I'm a has...
  13. Re: Hong Kong, Portland and the Moral Low Ground

    Nobody has any facts. Not a one of us is there. I'm probably closest of the people in this thread, and I'm not close. So, we're all basing anything off of what we read, see, and are told. Not a bit...
  14. Re: How can I set an event using the data from a SQL database

    I like that approach. If they run the app, the email is redundant. If they don't run the app, the email will never happen. An email that is separate from the app seems more likely to be useful...with...
  15. Re: Hong Kong, Portland and the Moral Low Ground

    Yeah. I'm not sure that we're quite on the same page, but pretty close. When I said they were really enjoying this, I did mean that the situation gave them the freedom to do what they had wanted to...
  16. Re: Hong Kong, Portland and the Moral Low Ground

    I can't say I believe that's what they are doing. Those federal police didn't show up in cities until Trump decided he had to run on a law and order platform. They're more than a bit strange, too, as...
  17. Re: Hong Kong, Portland and the Moral Low Ground

    Making the authorities faceless. Hollywood approves, I'm sure. It allows both sides to deny responsibility for any actions.

    That got me much closer. Unfortunately, I then got called away to other things. Hope to get back to it today.

    VS 2017 Re: Array in a Class

    That particular exception is probably the most common, and the easiest, of all exceptions. It just means that an object was not created at the time it was used. Examine the line that it was thrown...

  21. Re: TableLayoutPanel Click Event Won't Work When Cells Are Filled With Other Controls

    Will the cells always be filled?

    I'll be interested to see what others say about this, but in my view, a click is a click. You either get a click on a child or you get a click on the parent. If...

    Well, you pointed me towards IdentityServer4, and I certainly recognized that. The person who set up our system clearly used that...and is leaving, so it's good to know something about the...
  23. Re: Hong Kong, Portland and the Moral Low Ground

    When Bundy's group took over the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, I felt they had done something illegal, too. The police did very little other than watch. The one time they took action, somebody died, and...
  24. Re: Creating Control Array - Handles Clause Requires a WithEvents Error

    Yeah, start a new thread for that. The whole goal is getting the right eyeballs on the problem. That question is pretty similar, but you'd be better off marking this one as Resolved (on the Thread...
  25. Re: Will China be banned from using Windows or other American software?

    No, it won't go that far. You can count on that. Trump has zero interest in anything that lasts more than a day. Therefore, while he might lob some bombs, he won't do anything that will have any...
  26. Re: Will China be banned from using Windows or other American software?

    THAT was what you saw as so significant???? I thought you had something meaningful, but that was all you had?

    China has something that the US has always, and will always, covet: Over a billion...
  27. Re: Weird Screen Redraw Issue

    There is nothing in that code that seems too out of order. It can be improved in a few small ways, but it shouldn't be causing the problem.

    The only real issue is around the connection. At the...
  28. Re: Weird Screen Redraw Issue

    I'd go further. It's starting to get interesting, because if you did as you say, you've removed pretty much all the most likely candidates....except one, so before getting to what I was going to...
  29. Re: Creating Control Array - Handles Clause Requires a WithEvents Error

    Yeah, an array is an object. It's like an egg carton (thanks JMC), but until you add eggs to it, it's just the container. You want the events raised by the eggs, not events raised by the egg...
  30. Re: Hong Kong, Portland and the Moral Low Ground

    I'm surprised that the protests in Hong Kong were allowed to go on as long as they did, but I'm also surprised that China followed the treaty for as long as they did. Hong Kong was a business...
  31. Re: Will China be banned from using Windows or other American software?

    I was going to say that I don't see those consequences as being all that serious, but that's from a vantage of the long view. At the time, there were consequences. However, they were there because...
  32. Re: Hong Kong, Portland and the Moral Low Ground

    Neither has Canada, for that matter. We have the longest unsecured border in the world, yet the countries remain impressively distinct.
  33. Re: Hong Kong, Portland and the Moral Low Ground

    See you in the next life, then.
  34. Re: Weird Screen Redraw Issue

    In your test app, do the menus DO anything? If they do, then comment out all of that, as well. You want the menus to do nothing other than open and close, with no click handlers, or any other...
  35. Re: Will China be banned from using Windows or other American software?

    That's not true. Chinese history has plenty of examples. Go back to the letter the khan of the Hsiung-nu sent to Empress Lu, though it could be argued that it extends even further back. The Middle...

    You are certainly hard to understand.

  38. Re: Weird Screen Redraw Issue

    Dobule buffering will not help with this. That has to do with rendering the pixels to the screen. It can make some displays smoother, if the image stutters, but that's not the problem you are dealing...
  39. Re: Will China be banned from using Windows or other American software?

    China has always been sensitive to foreign humiliation. Perhaps it's some lingering result of Confucian ideals and the focus on manners. The US has a history of believing that past indiscretions...
  40. Re: Hong Kong, Portland and the Moral Low Ground
