    Question Load large image into a Bitmap object

    I have a large image (PNG: 22,550 x 16,7000) that I need to somehow split into several 256x256 JPG tiles. But when I try to load it into a Bitmap (or Image) object, I keep getting an "Out of Memory Exception" error. So, I was wondering if there is a better way to split an image up? Or is...

    Implement a "Suggest correct spelling" or "Did you mean" feature

    I am trying to write a search script for my company's website. I know how to search using the basics, like: SELECT * FROM myTable WHERE myColumn LIKE '%what%ever%'; and such, but I would like to implement some sort of "did-you-mean" feature, similar to Google. So, if a user misspells...

    Getting contacts from Gmail/Yahoo/etc.

    I am developing a website, and I've seen some sites (like LinkedIn.com) where they allow you to enter your Gmail username/password, and it will get all of your contacts, so you can add them as friends or invite them to join the site. How do they do this? I tried searching Google and this...

    Detect a user's periphials from a website

    Is there anyway to detect a user's periphials when they're visiting my website? I was thinking like a plug-in or something, where the user would have to accept the plug-in's installation (so they would know what's going on, it's not a sneaky thing). I know there are plug-ins that can view your...

    Extracting user's geographical location based on IP address

    This is great! Thanks. It turns out that you have to purchase it to get more than 25 or so lookups, but I can definitely see the benefits of web references! Thanks alot!

    Extracting user's geographical location based on IP address

    Sorry, I've never used web references before. I don't really know where to start. I tried adding a web reference that pointed directly to that url, but it gave me this error: The document at the url http://ws.cdyne.com/ip2geo/ip2geo.asmx/ResolveIP?IPaddress=1.1.1.1&LicenseKey=0 was not...

    Extracting user's geographical location based on IP address

    Thanks for the fast reply... but is it not safe to assume that if I can browse to it, I should be able to program to it? And if I can program to it from a Windows application, shouldn't I be able to program to it from a web application? Sorry if these are stupid assumptions, I don't know much...

    Extracting user's geographical location based on IP address

    Hi, I am trying to extract a user's general location based on their IP address. I've found several programs that have an annual fee to accomplish this, but I dug a little deeper and found this: http://ws.cdyne.com/ip2geo/ip2geo.asmx/ResolveIP?IPaddress=1.1.1.1&LicenseKey=0 (Change the...

    Pass a ProgressBar ByRef to a custom class on a BackgroundWorker thread

    I'm trying to make a custom class that will use my main form's ProgressBar to show some progress. The function takes a LONG time, so I have to run it on a different thread (I'm using the BackgroundWorker). How do I do this? Here is a dummy application that essentially demonstrates what I'm...

    RaiseEvent not handling from within constructor of custom class

    Thanks for responding so quickly... The event handler is on the main form. I don't want to handle it from within the custom class, I want the custom class to alert the main form that an item as been added. And like I said, it works perfectly fine when you call "Pictures.Add(100)" from the...

    RaiseEvent not handling from within constructor of custom class

    Hi, I've been developing for years, and have been using my own events just as long, but this one has me stumped. I could have sworn this used to work. (I'm using VS2005) Public Class Form1 Private WithEvents Test As TestClass Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object...
