Happy to help out if you post the actual HTML you're trying to display. Otherwise we're just guessing

Not sure why this is a problem, Richard. People still Google for this problem and this seems to be a solid answer that included the tip on setting transparency to false that the other answer didn't include. (and yes, my comment is also 4 years too late! :))

a) How is berating someone helpful?
b) If you feel the need to be negative then make it a comment, not an answer, please. Or simply just vote it down and move on.

Your code was a bit messed up. I've tried my best at guessing what it should be so please either come and correct it or close the question if you've moved on and no longer need help. Have you actually tried compiling this with a C compiler? If so, what errors did you get? (if any)

It's working for me. In the "What I have tried" bit of your question it would be valuable to add what you expected and what you actually saw.

Unfortunately this isn't a question: It's a request for testing. You may want to post this in the Beta testing forum

Interesting. Taking the combined least squares difference of the two lines, one anchored from the start, one at the end, and both terminating at their intersection would certainly give a workable solution. Seems a little brute force, but I'll give it a try.

I was actually working on exactly the same piece of code he worked, had a problem with it, searched, and found this. I figured an extremely late 2c would do wonders to confuse the issue.

If this becomes something where I have to sit down and fully test each solution, time them, verify their correctness, check for plagiarism and provide a point-by point independently verified set of judging criteria then I'm afraid I'll have to leave it to you guys to come up with the challenges and announce a "winner".

It's for fun. The judging is deliberately random and sometimes wildly biased.

How about we just leave this as a challenge and I forgo any attempt at declaring a winner. I want this to be fun, not something where it could potentially upset participants.

I was just about to ask you "how do we make this more of a spectator sport?".

A sidebar or maybe it's own page, but then we'd also need to promote that page. Lots of noise to fight against. I'm open to ideas and I'd like this to keep going and grow.

No - it's not that at all. A single answer is all I'm after. The single most *interesting* answer. The one that provokes the most discussion, the most praise, the most enjoyment. The one that shows someone stretched themselves a little more than the others. That's what it's about.

Reason for my vote of 2 \n This is a terrible way to test whether a visitor is on a mobile device. Trust me - I use it myself, and it fails more often than not.

New mobile clients are coming on daily and the best way to test for mobile clients is not to test for mobile clients. Test for ability and features. Does the client have touch? What dimensions and resolution is their screen? This (obviously) means client-side testing, but if you combine this with the notion of writing your web apps so they work on any screen size, regardless of whether it's a mobile device or not, then you'll have an app that works for as many people as possible.

We need to move away from fixed lists of mobile clients and accept that the notion is obsolete. Take the Surface Pro, for instance, or any convertible tablet. Are they a tablet? A desktop? Mobile? It depends, and it depends on things that user agent strings can't tell us.

Chris Maunder 10-Sep-14 10:31am View
Reason for my vote of 1 \n First: This isn't a tip - it's a bare-bones walkthrough of a topic that's been covered many times before. This article doesn't explain what it's trying to do - it simply shows code snippets cut and pasted from a larger applications.

Second: NEVER EVER EVER do something as stupid and dangerous as "using (SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter(txtSelect.Text, conn))". One can only assume that txtSelect is a text box, and you're injecting text a user enters directly into a SQL query. That's a direct SQL injection vulnerability and is EXTREMELY dangerous.

> I supposed to track which link user clicked?

Unless you can think otherwise, you're going to have to hard code some rules. If the URL contains /articles/ then it's from an artic;le. if it's "/" then it's the homepage etc.

> If you have the link to ::Workspaces on left sidebar, in menu bar and below the article, there is no way for me to distinguish between them

Would a querystring help?
Chris Maunder 12-May-14 1:41am View
Kamil - I'm assinging this to you because no matter what we do, you'll have to log the clicks at your end. I don't want any links to Workspaces to be redirection / tracking links because that will mean we lose Google SEO.

As discussed in the meeting, trapping the referrer URL should do it, or we can append a querystring value to links as a last resort (though this will skew results if Google caches the links)
Chris Maunder 11-May-14 21:37pm View

Merged the pull request and am making some small tweaks.

The main case where I need to mess around with URLs (the baseHref change) is when we have pending versions of articles. In this case the url will actually be section/basename/Working/image.ext instead of /section/basename/image.ext (for example). Handling that transparently is the goal. I'll play around with adding a more concrete example to the code.

The format of the printouts is not quite right:

To have a printout I can take to a meeting.


1. Easy to read
2. Print specific styling
3. As few pages as practical

Current problems

- There's a huge gap between the CodeProject banner at the top left and the first item
- The "Filter" / Sorting icons appear at the top of columns. They add nothing
- The spacing between items is way, way too much.
- The drag/drop and expand/collapse handles are shown. They shouldn't be
- the header bar looks too bare: At a minimum maybe have the orange bar continue across the top
- The print header shows ::Tasks and the URL. I'd rather have just chris-maunder-codeproject-solutions/tasks as the top-left print header, or even nothing
- I'd prefer page numbers to be in the center or right hand side
- Dates should never be X/Y/Z format, **ever**. What does 6/7/2014 represent? To a Canadian? An Australia? An Englishman? A Polish dude? dd-MMM-yyyy only please.

Chris Maunder 20-Aug-13 14:08pm View
Let me address your comments point by point without geting personal and claiming there's something wrong with you.

1. The title of the post says "change bground color of button when mouseover". The poor grammar makes it extremely ambiguous. Does the OP mean "a javascript mouseover event" or do that mean "when the mouse hovers over the button"? As I said, I would like the OP to clarify. My interpretation was that he wanted to change the background colour when the mouse is over the button. My answer addressed this. I would LOVE the OP to clarify his question and if my understanding was wrong, I'll remove my answer.

2. "you gave a misleading answer as it ignores first part of the question.". I updated my answer with clarifictions

3. "And your comment "JavaScript not jQuery" is totally wrong". My full comment was "he posted sample code that attempted to solve this with Javascript, not jQuery." I see some plain Javascript in his code, but I do not see the OP using the jQuery library anywhere in his post.

4. "Finally, it's too hard to agree that "it's up to OP to mark your solution as correct and incorrect"." Why doesn't the OP have the right to decide the correctness of an answer?

5. "As you don't want to admit your mistake" Was my mistake in using CSS, or was my mistake in not taking his javasacript and adapting that to work with more than one button?

6. "I'll vote 1 for your question, sorry. I hope you won't tell me that I cannot do that. :-)"

This is your right. Enjoy.
Chris Maunder 20-Aug-13 12:10pm View
Your response to the question was not an answer - in the sense it wasn't a solution that would enable the user to solve his problem.

With regards to my answer being incorrect I'm happy to have the original poster respond to my post and clarify. His question was title "change bground color of button when mouseover" and he posted sample code that attempted to solve this with Javascript, not jQuery. He also specifically asked how to make it work for many buttons, which my solution addressed. Nowhere do I mention "how to have two or more buttons of different colors"

It's up to the OP to comment and mark my solution correct or incorrect. I welcome your interpretation, but with respect I feel your intepretation of the question goes a little too far.

The question was "How do I do it in ASP.NET".
Chris Maunder 31-Jan-12 21:26pm View
What does the markup look like? Specifically, what is "lblTotal"?
Chris Maunder 31-Jan-12 21:20pm View
Totally agree.

You guys have the power to flag and close questions. If 5 of you flag a question it's gone. Just 5 people. The quality of the forum questions would rise considerably. Do your bit, we'll do ours.
Chris Maunder 31-Jan-12 19:00pm View
Point well made, but an even better way to make the point is to use the reporting mechanism, flag it as an incomplete question, and move on.

I would much, MUCH rather everyone simply used the voting mechanisms we have in place rather than making others feel stupid and embarrassed.

...which is a little annoying when you're trying to switch between Javascript and C# with the same regular expression. Though I don't understand why \n isn't included in "." in Multiline mode for all flavours of regex.

Why can't you use any subquery, joins, unions, etc?
Chris Maunder 24-Jan-12 14:35pm View
So vote the question as "Not a question" then.

Can I suggest, please, that you don't.

It never turns out to be a good idea. Ever.

Reason for my vote of 1
The time has long since passed when a recursive solution for calculating factorials was acceptable.
Chris Maunder 4-Oct-11 8:47am View
I've reworked the method to make it more generic and cleaner.
Chris Maunder 4-Oct-11 8:43am View
Nooooooooooo! Please, no more recursive functions for factorials. It's a horribly inefficient way to solve such a simple problem.

Encrypting passwords is a bad idea. The poster was asking about hashing. Two very different beasts.
Chris Maunder 19-Sep-11 23:50pm View
It was a bit of an off-the-cuff answer since we use it that way and I can't recall experiencing the same issue recently. Obviously there's more to the story.

Please post the question at the forum on, not here.

Show us the code for GetDataUser. That's where the error is. Have you checked your connection strings?
Chris Maunder 15-Aug-11 11:37am View
I would add this at the start:

if @Input is null or @SearchString is null or LEN(@SearchString) = 0 or LEN(@SearchString) > LEN(@input)

There is also an error with your parenthesis. I've fixed your code. Thanks again!
return 0

Christian - please post this as a comment, not as an answer. Better yet: report and close the question and move on to a question where you feel the author can best make use of what you can offer.
Chris Maunder 15-Aug-11 10:00am View
What's the error? You're not helping us help you.

Add the smallest snippet of code you can to your question and we might be able to help. Please edit the original question: don't post the info as an answer or comment.

From Steve: Still makes me say hmmm.... All of the other menu properties carry across the postback. Turns out on a postback, I was not resetting the properties for anything. All stayed except for RenderingMode. Moved RenderingMode before the bail on the postback, solved annoying problem

Why use a hammer?

Deleting since this is too open and has no context.

Which is best? A hammer or a screwdriver?

This is a completely pointless comment. Let me know when you get it and I'll remove it.

Just to be Devil's advocate here - well, not quite - doing a Select Column1,..., ColumnN from Table can be just as dangerous. Was the issue because you had two tables both with a column name with the same name? Select Table.Column1,..., Table.ColumnN from Table will at least allow the stored proc to compile, but even then your rowset will contain duplicate column names.

Correct database change management is what will save you here. Select * is not the problem, it's a symptom.

What type is "lboxStudentIDs.SelectedValue" and what type is "SchoolIDS"? You can't just cast between different types and expect it to work
