    Forms controls sizing issue

    Of course... I told you I was going stupid. Not using ClientSize is the error. What a supreme waste of time ! The control is a DataGridView rather than a Panel. The reason I've went this direction is because the DataGridView would not center within the form when Maximizing from a much smaller...

    Forms controls sizing issue

    It seems no matter how long I do this stuff, I continually get hung up on the ridiculously small stuff. Here's the only code on a simple form that is supposed to set the width of a panel (Panel1) to be 30 pixels less than the width of the form and center it. (15 pix on each side of the...

    Temporary online data storage

    Thanks JM; Yes things can get way out of hand when you don't know what you're doing. It's like playing golf with a blindfold. 'No telling where you're going to wind up. I wasn't aware that the host would provide the database. What are the benefits of using SQL Server Management Studio ?

    Question Image swap from DropDownList

    This is some HTML & Javascript for changing an image based on the users' selection in a drop-down List Box. I would like to accomplish the same thing without using Javascript. This snippet is in a View within an MVC. Is there a way this can be done through HTML exclusively or maybe replace the...

    ASP.net guidance for a newbie

    Hey JM: Thanks for mentioning MVC. It's something I had never looked into. This is perfect for everything I need to do. I can bundle all of my normal HTML pages within the same app and have the power and access to the data I need to make this work without trying to insert a bunch of script...

    ASP.net guidance for a newbie

    That's funny... I just stumbled across using an API as an alternative while researching this. It appears that I can build an API in Visual Studio 2019. Now I need to find the simplest example I can find and dissect it. The amount of data that I need to send is very small and I don't need a user...

    ASP.net guidance for a newbie

    Thanks for the response JM. I"m looking into that now. It appears to be many layers of complexity deeper than I expected and will introduce a steep learning curve for me, but I'll try to muscle through it. I appreciate your lead !

    ASP.net guidance for a newbie

    I need some guidance: I have an app that will be available for download from the internet, initially as a trial version. If / when the user decides to purchase the app for use beyond the trial period, they would link to my website to fill in a brief form and the server should return a unique...

    OK ... Updating to the .NET Framework 4.8 solved the dilemma. The offending code now steps through perfectly. Thank You both for the input. John has slayed so many dragons for me over the years I feel like I need to buy him a new car, or lunch, or something... If I could, I would !!!

    Answered Debug very slow...

    Something happened during my most recent build of a project that coincided with the time the latest VS2019 update came available. After the update, all debug stepping through the code was barely moving along. Where I used to click through the code as quickly as I could hit the mouse button, I...
