Are you restricted to integers? Howmany bytes?
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 28-Sep-12 22:18pm View
Have a +4 back at ya! He could also use a Tab control or lots of other ways to arrange things.
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 4-Sep-12 12:31pm View
Possibly. In some cases I've run into, the minimum size is too big. What would really be needed is to shrink the fonts, etc. as well as the edges of the controls. That's not so easy and I don't have a good solution.

If setting a minimum size works for your case, that's certainly easy!
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 15-May-12 19:28pm View
Is this homework?

So, is the algorithm as follows? {1000*a, 100*b, 20*c, d} where a = N div 1000, b = (N - 1000*a) div 100, c = (N - 1000*a - b*100) div 20, d = N mod 20, where div represents an integer division and mod is the modulus operator.
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 23-Apr-12 22:18pm View
So what algorithm is used to determine that 1020 -> 1000, 0, 20 while 1019 -> 1000, 0, 0, 19? I don't see any easily inferred pattern there.
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 23-Apr-12 22:01pm View
I thought you were separating digits by powers of ten until I saw your 3rd, 6th and 7th examples. If you can you explain the logic behind those, the algorithm should be straight forward and coding will then follow.
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 9-Apr-12 19:11pm View
What algorithm or formula do you need to apply to get the new M*N x M*N matrix from the old A[M*N]? If you don't require any particular formula, there are a multitude of ways to do that, the easiest being to just create an M*N x M*N dimensioned array and fill it with something like 0.

However, I suspect that's not what you meant, so you need to clarify what formula needs to be used.

Well, it appears that perhaps your SMTP server isn't connecting because it requires a secure connection or it's not correctly authenticating.

So, what type of connection are you using and how is the authentication handled?

I'm curious. How can you be a .NET developer if you don't already know most of those things before the interview and can't find the answers on your own?

No need to get violent over a school project. No one helped me with mine. In fact getting someone else to do your work for you would be considered unethical here. Shame on you.

Where was CP when I was doing school projects? I had to choose my own projects, my own Masters Thesis, and now my own Doctoral Dissertation. Bummer.

You forgot the most important issue: Will the school, university, professor, etc. accept the choice of project?

Primeramente aquí usamos inglés. Segundo, lo que parece urgente para ti, no es para la mayoría aquí. Somos profesionales y trabajamos. Si quieres que alguien escribe un programa, debes buscarles en sitios donde contratan para pago. Tercero, Netbeans no es un lenguage, es un "framework" de Java. Si no entiendes esa diferencia, vas a tener problemas.

Y finalmente, este parece como tarea de escuela. Ya he hecho todo mi tarea y recibí notas buenas.

[First, here we use English. Second, what seems urgent to you, isn't for the majority here. We are professionals and work for a living. If you want someone to write a program, you should look for them on a contractor site where you can pay them. Thirdly, Netbeans is not a language, but a framework for Java. If you don't understand the difference, you'll have big problems.

OK, that would be some sort of encryption. Do you need high security or can some sort of simple bit rotation work?
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 13-Feb-12 15:33pm View
What are you trying to accomplish? Base64 can only encode 64 unique characters, no matter how many you wish it to encode. If you need more, you need to use something else or just don't encode. So that gets back to the question: What are you trying to accomplish?

Yes, disabling the whole desktop will create problems in the long run, but I'll never tell how I know. :) Hiding is one option, but if anything goes wrong, you could have a hidden form and no way to do anything about it.

I suppose it depends on what could go wrong in the OP's particular case, but I'd probably opt for using a dialog rather than a plain form.

You might want to mention why it's faster and what you compared it to.

Well, I think there's much to do about nothing. I said I would consider using a check box, etc., but not that I would demand it. If not meeting the requirements means he won't get paid, then I fully understand.

I can control my own code, but not others, so I figure that if they've been advised, then it's up to them to decide what makes more sense in their situation.

So, what's the question?
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 18-Jul-11 23:22pm View
Yes, that's what I would do. Simple and no validation needed.

You beat me to it! Content is an object, so the comparison is between a string on the right and an object reference on the left. The cure is to get the string from the object, just as the warning says, but I'd probably use Content.ToString() since it clearly shows what is being done.

Yes, thanks for the reminder.

What exact program statements did you use. There is no property called "visibility". There is "Visible", but it may require a Refresh() to take affect.

Aside from what I assume are typos, that function should work. What language are you using and exactly what lines of code?
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 17-Jul-11 1:41am View
Fixed formatting.

Please explain what you mean. By definition a Stack is ordered by first in last out. Do you want a random access storage or what?
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 16-Jul-11 23:47pm View
So exactly what problem are you having? However I question the approach of trying to draw the signature with line segments embedded in a string.

Removed email. Please don't post your email address here. People will reply here if they can help.

Any hints as to what the problem was?
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 16-Jul-11 18:36pm View
Fixed formatting.

Can you clarify? It may depend on whether or not the computer is under Windows. I'm not sure what happens if it's by the door, unless there's Windows nearby.
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 15-Jul-11 18:50pm View
Your code is doing just what it should be doing. Why did you expect something different?
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 15-Jul-11 17:42pm View
Fixed the code formatting due to a misplaced </pre> tag.
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 15-Jul-11 13:41pm View
Actually it has everything to do with your problem, since you need to make a custom cell if you want to put a date time picker in the cell itself.

Thanks! Another example of how we computer people can complicate a simple concept!
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 14-Jul-11 0:24am View
Fixed the <pre> blocks

Like CG mentioned, you need to initialize the objects. Declaring an array of objects just reserves space for the pointers to the objects and you need to actually create each object.

For example, insert obj(0) = New student before obj(0).SetID, etc.

This is just a code dump, not an article.

What specific problems are you having with Oracle, DB2, etc? I doubt anyone will just up and give you code.
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 12-Jul-11 22:40pm View
Is the error when reading from the DB and displaying or when trying to save back to the DB?
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 12-Jul-11 22:06pm View
While your tip will find weekdays, it doesn't account for holidays or other working arrangements. Frankly I don't know how to do that in general, since holidays and work schedules vary from location to location even within a company. I'm just pointing this out because failure to account for holidays, strange work weeks, long weekends and other work schedules can certainly impact the bottom line as well as any project schedule, if that's what you are trying to compute.

I would change the name to finding "weekdays" rather than "working days".
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 12-Jul-11 13:48pm View
No, I'm not going to write your program for you, but what I would do unless there's an overriding reason not to, is in your Shell command call the program with a parameter, like "myprogram.exe myparameter". Then in "myprogram", examine the commandline parameters to see if "myparameter" was specified by examining the "Command" string in your code. The VB documentation should help you find information on the "Command" string.

Whenever you set the value, if it is negative, set the FontColor for one or the all the Cells in the Row to Red, otherwise, set them to some other color. When you set the value, you should know which row it's going into, so just change the color of that row.

Wow, a 1 vote with no reason. If it wasn't a good answer, someone could at least point the OP in the right direction.
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 10-Jul-11 15:30pm View
Have a 5. Thanks for the info. Why didn't you post those before I figured out how to do it? (Where is the :laugh: icon?)
Dr.Walt Fair, PE 8-Jul-11 20:56pm View
I put some tags in to make your code more readable.
