    Why Microsoft has no VB examples

    parameter must be positive and < height

    The debugger does not remove errors, it just shows you where they are in slow motion. You need to learn how to use it first. This tutorial is for C# but that doesn't matter because the primary examples still apply. Navigate code with the debugger - Visual Studio

    Resolved Picturebox events

    How do I retain My.Settings values through a software upgrade

    It's not that straight forward as made out John. When the upgrade commences, it will use a new version of the application from within a new folder version created by the updater, and that settings file will not retain the values. It's been many years since I used clickonce for anything, so I am...
