Please indicate which number your are using as input.
phil.o 3-Dec-21 4:11am View
You'd better ask the author of the package you are using :) You already have the address.
But I would bet this has something to do with the credentials of the account under which your script is running. I'd check that first.

You may want to try Audacity (an open-source software). This is what I'm using to normalize my mp3 files, and find it quite handy.
phil.o 2-Dec-21 3:13am View
And do you know how these mp3 files are produced?
phil.o 1-Dec-21 14:23pm View
You should start with your course material.
phil.o 1-Dec-21 3:33am View
Audio header does not contain artist, song, etc.. details. These can be added either as ID3 v1 or v2 tags, but these tags are absolutely optional, and their absence should never prevent audio stream loading.
Regarding faulting files, are they valid mp3 files in any other software?

You can see the class definition as a blueprint: it defines what is an object, which are its properties and methods. An instance of that object is the result of building the blueprint.

It's not just a matter of syntax. Important part is how to think about a problem and build an algorithm. Using the right syntax is not the difficult part of the job :)

You did not ask any question. If you are expecting someone will do your homework for you, you will be disappointed.

I would check both C and C++ language standards used in both projects, and see whether they match.

I voted 5 just for the surrealistic conversation :laugh:

If you want an index on that column, you cannot have more than 1700 bytes in a single row. So it seems that, as it is, you won't be able to create an index.
If you have the possibility to shrink down this field down to maximum 1700 bytes, then you will be able to index the column.
phil.o 25-Nov-21 14:21pm View
"The maximum key length for a nonclustered index is 1700 bytes."
This should be a huge tip.

Problem is in the schema, not the xml file itself, apparently.

No problem, I'm glad you found something to work with :)

Without you using the green Improve question widget which appears while hovering your question, and qualifying the "What I have tried:" section with relevant code, I'm afraid your question is deemed to disappear into oblivion :)
phil.o 24-Nov-21 3:43am View
Ok I get it. Whenever I have to deal with a large number of projects in a solution, I use the Property Manager[^] feature of Visual Studio. Perhaps it could help you define families for output directories. I hope so.
phil.o 23-Nov-21 7:26am View
Please use the green Improve question widget which appears while hovering your question, and qualify the What I have tried: section with the actual code you have written. Please put the code inside <pre>...</pre> tags.
phil.o 23-Nov-21 6:50am View
This may seem silly, but why don't you use the dedicated editor which is integrated right into Visual Studio? Moreover, the sample you have shown is not valid xml. Please make sure to post acurate informations :)
phil.o 22-Nov-21 6:19am View
Hi Maciej, good point :)
phil.o 22-Nov-21 1:41am View
Think about it: what happens if you delete a table which is referenced by another?
phil.o 19-Nov-21 12:31pm View
undefined reference to `WinMain'

This could indicate that you have created a dll project (WinMain is the entry point of a Windows dll) instead of a console application. I never used mingw, so I can't tell you how, but could you make sure you are actually working with a project whose destination is a console application?
phil.o 19-Nov-21 7:24am View
You're welcome :)
phil.o 19-Nov-21 4:13am View
What does your course material say about it?
phil.o 19-Nov-21 4:11am View
Please use <pre> tag for code blocks. This makes things a lot easier to read. I did it for you this time.
phil.o 18-Nov-21 7:15am View

You could try to put the file in a folder with no restrictions for anyone, and test whether it is an access-rights issue.

"Who wants to tweak that code that I copied from anywhere, so that it fulfills my homework requirements?"
I think that is the real question :)
phil.o 14-Nov-21 3:48am View
I strongly doubt that you get a cs1061 telling there is no Where method on Paragraphs, if System.Linq is imported. Paragraphs properties implements IEnumerable.
phil.o 13-Nov-21 10:47am View
You should add a directive to use System.Linq namespace, to get rid of the nasty cs1061. Then, you should have a go and test, anyway, because linq may not work as you expect :) The lambda gives a mean to the iterator to skip those items which do not satisfy the predicate.
phil.o 10-Nov-21 0:55am View
You have our permission to proceed.
Do you have a question?
phil.o 9-Nov-21 10:29am View
OK after re-reading the whole thing I think I get it.
You need to terminate statements and tell the engine to specifically process before continuuing:
IF OBJECT_ID('Extractreports.dbo.PartGeneration') IS NOT NULL
     DROP TABLE Extractreports.dbo.PartGeneration;
IF OBJECT_ID('Extractreports.dbo.getInsertedRows') IS NOT NULL
     drop table Extractreports.dbo.getInsertedRows;

-- the rest of the SP here
phil.o 9-Nov-21 6:50am View
If you delete (drop) the table, there is no column left, since there is no table to contain it.
It remains the possibility of something wrong in your secret logic, maybe you are recreating the table there, maybe not... As we can't see, we can't guess. All we can see is that you are dropping the table, and then performing a query against the same table that you just dropped. Which cannot work.
phil.o 7-Nov-21 17:13pm View
You already have been asked not to delete your questions after they have received some answers. So, please, stop doing it.
phil.o 5-Nov-21 20:52pm View
This is still not an issue description.
You should also write
Bankinfo n = getBankinfo();
in your main method. Right now you create the variable but you do not affect it the result returned by the getBankInfo() method.
phil.o 5-Nov-21 20:24pm View
Yes, you have to use the Member Access Operator ->[^]
When you work with a pointer, you cannot use . as member accessor; you have to use -> operator:
struct thing { int value; };
thing* pointerToThing = new thing;
pointerToThing.value = 0; // Will not compile. Wrong operator.
pointerToThing->value = 0; // OK
phil.o 5-Nov-21 20:10pm View
I mean: every database element name that you define (database name, table name, column name, etc...) should not hold any extended characters. It's best to stick with ASCII characters, no accent, no language-specific letter, etc.
For example, in your query, you could just use english names for columns, for the sake of consistency. I find it rather disturbing to read text with mixed-languages. I never name any code element or database member in my native language.
phil.o 5-Nov-21 20:01pm View
not specific enough as an issue description...
phil.o 5-Nov-21 4:51am View
Please, dont be childish :)

Then it's time to lauch a debug session. Put a breakpoint on the first line of the click event handler, press F5, and investigate from here.
Note that accessing root directory is not recommended, and even prohibited on modern OSes. Try to browse from a subdirectory instead.
phil.o 5-Nov-21 3:04am View
Apparently, backslashes are not needed :)
phil.o 5-Nov-21 2:57am View
Apparently, whenever you write if (, this opens a virtual space where indentation is relaxed. The link provided by Dave shows several options you have to get a proper syntax, no scrolling required, just a link right to a code block with examples.
You do not have to use backslashes for multiline conditions, as we would do with C preprocessor directives, for example.
phil.o 5-Nov-21 1:48am View
month variable is assigned to an empty string once, and never gets updated later.
Try giving this variable a meaningful value.
phil.o 4-Nov-21 14:44pm View
As I told you: at this point, you are the only one who can find out the issue, because you are the only one having all required elements. And I gave you the way for that: the debugger. Did you follow the link I provided?
phil.o 4-Nov-21 13:30pm View
Then it is time for you to discover a whole new field: debugging :)
The error you get need to be investigated, and for that you need to compile the project and lauch a debug session (F5 in Visual Studio).

phil.o 4-Nov-21 2:52am View
There is your issue. You should always use the database type which is adapted to the data. Datetime values are a nightmare to handle when stored as strings.
If you use datetime type, it means you can compare two values using common < and > operators. If you use strings, you cannot compare values directly, and so have to split strings to get relevant parts; not to mention datetime format issues...
I'll write a solution to show you how to write your query for a column with proper type. The query for a datetime stored as string is awful, spending time on it is useless since it will resort to very poor query performances anyway.
phil.o 4-Nov-21 1:17am View
This has something to do with the current working directory. The .bat file has to be in the same folder as the executable running that code. Or, you have to pass the full path to the .bat file. Remember to escape the backslashes if you are writing a path; or use the verbatim-string modifier.
// Escaped version
string filename = "C:\\Users\\Paul\\Documents\\Netflix_run.bat";

// Verbatim version
string filename = @"C:\Users\Paul\Documents\Netflix_run.bat";

'Write a program' is not a question. This is a request.
phil.o 28-Oct-21 6:17am View
Did you place that code in a console application? Or in another type of VS project?
phil.o 28-Oct-21 4:33am View
Someone could try to help you, provided you take time to describe an issue and filter out all that pile of code so that we can concentrate on the important part.
phil.o 27-Oct-21 17:28pm View
I formatted the code for you, but this leads to malformed c++ which won't even compile.
Please edit your question, and post your actual code inside <pre> tags. To do that, most simple way is to select option "Code block" on pasting into the "What I have tried" section.
phil.o 26-Oct-21 15:12pm View
There are other flaws. For example, a for loop is taken for a conditional statement.
phil.o 17-Jun-20 7:25am View
I added the pre tag in which you can paste your current CSS code. Please use the green "Improve question" widget.
phil.o 16-Jun-20 19:43pm View
What don't you understand in that? Right now, this just looks like you asking us to do your homework.
phil.o 10-Jun-20 17:22pm View
If no row is selected, selected index will equal -1. With the code I wrote, no button will be enabled then. You can change the logic to make it whatever you find appropriate.
And, yes, basically I think you do not need inc and maxRows class variables.
phil.o 5-Jun-20 10:59am View
If "the part of the program that works fine" is raising an exception, it might not be as fine as you think. Just sayin' :)

Problem is, the code that you are showing is not relative in any way to your original question.
phil.o 2-Jun-20 11:05am View
Thanks :)
phil.o 2-Jun-20 9:10am View
Please use the green "Improve Question" button and qualify the "What I have tried" part with what you actually tried. No one will do your homework for you.
phil.o 31-May-20 12:58pm View
You're welcome.
phil.o 31-May-20 7:41am View
Well, explaining all of it may take quite an amount of time, and goes far beyond the purpose of a quick answers forum. If you could use the green "Improve Question" button, and qualify your question with the relevant part of the code that you have so far, then it would be easier to provide a concrete solution.
If you really are a total beginner, I would advise to put your current project on hold, and invest some time in learning the basics of the language first. It wouldn't be a waste of time, but instead will make your learning curve much smoother, in the long term.
phil.o 31-May-20 5:50am View
You're welcome.
phil.o 31-May-20 5:17am View
I updated my comment. It is completely possible to do that, with any database system. As I told in the comment, you should escape the double-quotes inside the string.
phil.o 31-May-20 5:06am View
string DataLoad = "SELECT Format([Date], \"mm/yyyy\") AS \"Month/Year\", Count([Name]) AS \"Count\" FROM [customer] GROUP BY Format([Date], \"mm/yyyy\")";

You have to escape double quotes inside the string itself.
phil.o 31-May-20 4:51am View
You're welcome.

I edited my answer to provide a solution for an MS Access query.
phil.o 31-May-20 4:43am View
So, you are using access database, but have tagged your question MySQL.
And you wonder why you don't get valid answers?
phil.o 31-May-20 4:33am View
Would you mind explaining what that means exactly? What result do you get?
phil.o 30-May-20 13:52pm View
If the last line is not an empty line, you may be off by one (I'm not sure, though; this would need to be checked). In this case, this might overcome the issue:
awk 'BEGIN {sum=0} {sum+=length($0)} END {print sum+NR-1}'

The text of the macro as shown in my snippet is just an example. You have to modify it with the text of your own macro. file1 holds the path of the word document you want to write to, and file2 is only here because there was the need of its value in the example. You may not need the file2 variable.
And, if you have some code to share, please use the green "Improve Question" widget, and put it in the "What I have tried" section, using pre tag for code formatting.

Yes: someone apparently managed to stole some informations about you. I would have a thourough check on my computer, if I were in the same situation. Maybe you have some sort of spyware. Or maybe it is just that you are using the same password on different places, and that one of them has been stolen. There is no way for us to tell for sure from where this comes. You should also change your existing passwords, and use a different one on each site. Password manager applications exist to help you with that. Anyway, you should consider any activity on your computer as highly risky until you have had it checked free from any malware/keylogger/spyware.
phil.o 28-May-20 20:08pm View
No, you should either create a parameterless constructor in the Task class, so that your existing code finds this constructor. Or modify the line Task newTask = new Task(); to Task newTask = new Task(DateTime.MinValue, PriorityType.NotUrgent, "Default task"); (for example) so that it calls the already existing constructor.
phil.o 28-May-20 19:15pm View

phil.o 28-May-20 19:10pm View
You could start by clicking on the numerous links at the right side of this page which relate to this issue :)
phil.o 28-May-20 18:46pm View
You're welcome. You could try two things: first, explicitly declaring the Task class as public. Second: giving it a parameterless constructor, which assigns default values for date, priority and description; or use in the calling code the existing constructor (the one with parameters).
Edit: as there already exists a Task class in the System.Threading.Tasks namespace, you should give your own class another name; or, if you want to keep that name, then use the fully qualified name (FriendlyReminder.Task) in every file where the System.Threading.Tasks namespace has been imported.
phil.o 28-May-20 18:42pm View
Please delete this answer; the place for this is in the question, like you already did :)
phil.o 28-May-20 17:38pm View
I don't know. System.Threading.Tasks.Task class does not have any empty constructor (a constructor without any argument). But then, you wouldn't get the error message you actually get (it would rather be something along "No constructor accepting zero argument is defined").
What is this task class you are using exactly? Did you create it yourself? If so, could you please use the green "Improve Question" button and provide the definition of this class?
Edit: the error message suggests that Task would rather be a property, but then you would get a compilation error since the Task class would appear non-existent. None of this makes really sense.
phil.o 28-May-20 15:50pm View

In this case, you have to count whitespaces in the function determining how many 'special' characters there are.
phil.o 28-May-20 11:51am View
I wondered why, too. But, who knows... :)
phil.o 28-May-20 11:38am View
I cannot see why $, %, ^, &, etc. would be special; they are all representable glyphs. So is whitespace, even if this glyph actually is blank.
So, what exactly is your definition of special? Do you mean a character which is not a letter nor a digit? A whitespace is not a letter nor a digit, but it is printable.
phil.o 28-May-20 10:40am View
The requirement is not totally clear to me. Besides, it goes beyond your original question. Please, try to do it by yourself first, then ask a new question about this new requirement if you are stuck, eventually. Sorry, but I won't write it all for you.

Often people will post their "question" as an answer to and old question which looks like theirs. I wouldn't qualify this as spam right away; let's wait for an eventual payload to flag it formally, but I wouldn't bet on qualifying this as spam.
phil.o 28-May-20 9:01am View
This is not an answer. Besides, solution 2 already explains in clear words what the core of your issue is.
phil.o 28-May-20 8:54am View
This is the same as what you have tried and which was not correct.
The only decent way is to use a parameterized query:
using (SqlCommand Cmd = ...)
   Cmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM Table1 WHERE Field1 = @value";
   Cmd.Parameters.Add("@value", SqlDbType.NVarChar).Value = TextBox1.Text;
   // Then execute the command.

The Next function, when called with two parameters, will return an integer greater than or equal to the first parameter, and strictly lower than second parameter. Thus, it will return a value between 0 and 255 (inclusive). If this value is greater than 127, we choose white (255); otherwise, we choose black (0).

Your only option is to debug your code and investigate the value of the variable holding the server name.
phil.o 28-May-20 6:48am View
No, because there is no obvious reason for not using a boolean type when it actually exists :)
phil.o 28-May-20 6:05am View
Then debug your code to see where is the issue.
The python debugger

I do not understand why you don't return True or False from your function. Python has a boolean type, so why no using it?
status = True  # instead of status = 1
status = False # instead of status = 0
return status  # instead of return (int)status

This is a common non-issue. You should not care that your ids in the database are not contiguous. They are not meant to make your data pretty, they are meant to index a row unambiguously. Strict continuity of numeric ids is nothing else than cosmetic.

The problem isn't in the setup. It is in your code relying on a file which it is expecting to find in the Program Files folder. Change the code so that this file is placed in one of the directories I told, and you will get rid of the issue.

Anything which aims at verifying that the payment has been actually done. This depends on so many factors that there is not a single code fitting all situations. See with the entity processing the payments to know how to properly use their services.

public Counter(int _val, int _min, int _max)
   min = _min;
   max = _max;
   Value = _val;

OG means that: since setting the Value property internally calls the InRange() method, then you have to set minimum and maximum values before setting the value itself; otherwise, both minimum and maximum will equal zero, and your constructor won't accept any other value than zero.

In addition, you should have a look at what is debugging; it would allow you to have a better understanding of what your code is doing by investigating its state step-by-step.

System.Windows.Media.Brushes is not a collection, i.e. it does not implement basic collection interfaces. In this case, you'd better create your own collection.

Credentials are managed at the connection level, not at the query level. You cannot issue a query to change the login of a connection.

You have to get rid of --- \t at the end of the string. This is what prevents the date from being properly parsed.
phil.o 21-May-20 13:40pm View
What is in the file is one thing; but this is what is exacly in the date variable which matters.
Tutorial: Learn to debug C# code using Visual Studio
Put a breakpoint on the line string date = columns[0];, and start a debug session (F5). When the program will get to the breakpoint, its execution will pause, and you'll be able to execute it line by line (F11) and watch for the values held in variables.
phil.o 21-May-20 13:26pm View
Withot knowing what exact value there is in the string, it is hard to tell a solution. It is time for you to start a debug session and investigate this value which cannot be parsed. Do you know how to conduct a debug session?

My bad, I corrected my answer.

You add a double value to the list. Only when you present the data to the end user, then the string representation becomes relevant. You seem to still think that 1.1 and 1.10 are two distinct values; they are not.

In the helloYou function:
1. Get the length of the string parameter.
2. Test whether it is odd:
2a. If it is odd, return "undefined".
2b. Else, concatenate "Hello, ", the parameter, then "!", and return the result.

There is absolutely no difficulty nor trick in that. You just have to start writing and testing.

access C#
This will give you plenty of material on how to connect to an access database from C#. Teaching you this sort of thing is way beyond the purpose of a quick answers forum.
Please note that you cannot read from and write to a database at the same time. You can read from it with a SELECT command, and you can write to it with an INSERT or UPDATE command, for example. Again, all of this is rather generic, and you should have a minimal understanding of relational database queries before attempting to use one in your application.

Your XML file does not look like a well-formed XML document. You are showing no closing tags.
You should validate your XML file first, to ensure it is in a proper format. If your XML file is not valid XML, you cannot expect proper results while browsing the document tree.

The purpose of your assignment is not to test your ability to find some code on the internet and copy/paste it as your own work, but rather to teach you how to analyze a problem, draw a diagram of the required steps to solve it, and translate that into actual C code.
phil.o 13-May-20 3:43am View
Because it is your assignment, you have to put a minimal work into it.
You should begin by drawing a diagram of required steps to satisfy the requirements. Once done, translate these steps into a C program.
You will only learn how to copy/paste if we do your assignment for you. For now, your question rather looks like a "please do my homework" type of question. On the other hand, if you put some minimal effort into your work, and come up with a concrete question about some code you wrote, we will be glad to help.
phil.o 10-May-20 14:33pm View

Answering your now deleted comment, I showed you one of many ways to accomplish your requirement. As a developper, producing this kind of pseudo-code is the very first thing that you should be able to do. You showed no attempt at all on your side, stating that you don't know how to go about it. I just put you on the road, providing a direction. Now, it is up to you to follow it and provide some work of your own. The important thing here is not the final result, but rather the steps you have to follow to get to it. Put in other terms, in a learning process, the journey is way more important than the destination itself.

I'm not sure if it's related to method overloading
No, it's not.

It justs asks you to create the class and give it four instance variables.

You put these values as properties of the class you define.
I think you are confusing a multidimensional array with a tuple.
phil.o 7-May-20 5:33am View
You create a class holding all values you need. Then you create a single-dimension array of this class.
public class Whatever
   // Properties

Whatever[] theArray = new Whatever[ARRAYSIZE];
// or (easier)
var list = new List<Whatever>();

Thanks for your vote.
I learnt basic in the early eighties from the language guide of my computer, a Texas Intruments TI99-4A. This guide was only describing formal grammar and syntax, with a few examples, but was nowhere near an exhaustive recipe about any requirement that a human being could even think of. I bought specialized press to get more detailed examples of what can be done and how.
The older guy you are talking about may suffer from the "It was way better before" syndrom.
I don't get what you mean by "these videos", "with strings". Which videos? What strings?
I would also add that the language is not the only thing to study: generic algorithmic, data structures, diagrams, are also quite important to learn, and they are not bound to any specific language.
