    Question Get value from DropDownButton

    I see my error now, I was trying to trap the value of the item clicked from the Dropdownclosed event of the DropDownButton, instead of the Click event from the actual item in the list.

    Question Get value from DropDownButton

    Using VS 2010, there's a DropDownButton control where you click it and it pops down a list of options. I've looked and looked and can't figure out how to retrieve the value of the option that the user selects. Unlike the combo box, this button doesn't have a textbox. I've put the button onto...

    Linklabel -- how to populate subject & body of email?

    Yes, and I understand concatenation... but the code there gave little insight on using concatenation with the MailTo thing. Finally figured it out with a some experimentation... the key is realizing that you can put stuff outside of the quotes and it still will show up in the body... not that...

    Linklabel -- how to populate subject & body of email?

    Hmmm, I'm missing the connection between using a variable inside of the MailTo function and concatenation. Could you elaborate just a wee little bit? :) I'd like to do something like this: Private Sub linklabel1_LinkClicked(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As...

    Linklabel -- how to populate subject & body of email?

    The code below seems like it would lend itself well to using a variable to put text into the body and subject, but it requires a "From". I won't have that information at run time. I assume there is a way to retrieve the users default email address, though, but is this the best way to go...

    Linklabel -- how to populate subject & body of email?

    D'oh! I went to the other two links and didn't notice the 1st, needed link... gotta use the ampersand between the subject and body: mailto:user@example.com?subject=Message Title&body=Message Content Next question.... in my app, I have a code in a textbox that the user previously copy/pasted...

    Linklabel -- how to populate subject & body of email?

    Thanks JohnH, as always your quick help is appreciated. I see that if put "?body" after the 'To' address, then it puts the following text into the body of the message. But in this case, the subject doesn't work, all text after "body = " ends up in the body. I'm having a hard time finding...

    Linklabel -- how to populate subject & body of email?

    In my app I want the user to be able to click a linklabel on the form to send me an email. Easy enough using this: Private Sub linklabel1_LinkClicked(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.LinkLabelLinkClickedEventArgs) Handles linklabel1.LinkClicked...

    Reading text file line by line, with resetting position to beginning of file

    Hmmm. Wow. The files are not that big, few hundred K at most, so reading them into an array from the beginning would be much better. Darn, wish I would have thought about that! Thanks very much JM!

    Reading text file line by line, with resetting position to beginning of file

    I'm reading a text file with StreamReader, line by line. If a condition is met, then I do an operation and then start reading the file again from the first line. I realize I could close and then re-open the file, but surely this would be very slow. I could do this easily in VB6, but pulling...

    DataGridView is slowwwwww....

    JohnH, I'm not using the CellFormatting event at all. I am running Windows 7 64bit. Does the first code just go into the Form1 Class with all of my other code? I put it there & get an error on the 2nd line of that: "Declaration expected" If I were to try the 2nd code snip, would I add a...

    DataGridView is slowwwwww....

    InertiaM, I have not put Try..Catch error handlers in my code yet. Evidently it's an issue for lots of people, here's a page full: Fixing a slow scrolling DataGridView | Bitmatic Seems like they have a solution, but I just didn't understand it enough to implement it. Thanks for your reply!
