    hope this is the right place to post this question i recently converted a 2003 vb.net project to 2005--cleaned up the errors and it runs ok but it gives me warnings about using public function "parameters.add() for inserting records into sql table--says that is now obsolete and has been...

    syntax for Dataview vs. Dataset

    yes, you might be on to something--that could be the difference--maybe that's why i haven't detected the difference until now. but i've searched various books and documents and can't find any reference to it. thanks for the suggestion. dale

In the past, when I wanted to get a value of some item of some row within a dataview, I used the following syntax: CurrentDataview.Table.Rows(RowNumberOfInterest).Item("PreviewCaption") with the variable RowNumberOfInterest...

    problem with intellisense

    in my other projects, when i type in some syntax violation (i.e. "kkkkkk"), then after i leave that line, the IDE reformats the line and then puts the squiggly line under the violation, indicating a syntax error. in a new project i created in a new solution, this does not immediately happen...

    laying one "transparent" form on another

    thanks--that helps a lot--i will try this in the next couple of days. i believe you've given me enough to get started--last question--you say i don't really have to draw the rectangle but if i want the user to actually see these hit areas as a guide, then wouldn't i want to draw these target...

    laying one "transparent" form on another

    not sure if this is correct forum but here goes. i have an application where users need to fill out injury reports for clients and identify the location of the injury. I thought one way of doing this would be to have an image of human body and lay on top of that a mostly transparent image that...

    how to create a blank solution

    i am still using vs2003 but part time trying out vs2005. in 2003, to create a blank solution, you could click on File-New and get 3 choices (Project-File-Solution), which would permit you to create a blank solution, with no project. i can't seem to figure out how to do this in 2005--closest i...
