    Entity Framework 6 - Intermittent Runtime Error Reading AppSettings from Config

    Unfortunately I'm still having this problem but I'm picking up a bit of a pattern now which has hopefully led me closer to a resolution (of sorts). Whenever these weird configuration error occur there are two threads that error out at basically the exact same time (give or take 20 milliseconds...

    Entity Framework 6 - Intermittent Runtime Error Reading AppSettings from Config

    I have made a couple of changes to my implementation which has resulted in a different method of disposing of my wrapper objects which appears to have helped a bit but I am still getting these intermittent errors, albeit at a lesser rate. Have actually gotten an additional config error of a...

    Hey folks, I've tried searching for solutions to this on the web and either I'm the only one experiencing this or the search criteria are too broad based on the details involved :| I have an application running which makes use of Entity Framework 6 and basic threading.

    InstallShield LE - How to deploy as a single MSI file?

    This is my first time using IS LE and I've sorted out the installation process and everything is perfect EXCEPT for the installation setup file structure. Previously when building my deployment projects I would package everything into a single MSI or setup executable and just make that...

    Question Floating point values in NumericUPDown control

    To allow floating point numbers update the .DecimalPlaces property to however many decimal points you'd like to allow. After that you can set the .Increment property to 0.1. So basically, set .DecimalPlaces to 0 and .Increment to 1 when you want to work with whole numbers and then set them to...

    How to merge cells in DataGridView?

    I've gotta say that after all the time that's passed since my original post the merging functionality I needed all those years ago would still have made a fantastic difference and even though I'm now at a level (finally! :3) where I'm able to inherit from the DGV and implement my own control...

    Question Is there a solution to the Bleeding Cursor problem for Firefox 2 and IE 6?

    Edit: This also applies to IE7 and IE8. FF3 and Opera 10 don't suffer from this problem at all.

    Question Is there a solution to the Bleeding Cursor problem for Firefox 2 and IE 6?

    I have a CSS menu comprised of <div>, <a>, <ul> and <li> elements. The menu works just fine except for when an <input> element currently has focus and the carat marking the current position in the element blinks and bleeds through the menu when it is displayed. Changing the z-index of the menu...

    Question With a StatusStrip is it possible to Spring the entire width?

    I have a basic Form with a StatusStip at the bottom. I have set SizingGrip = False and the BackColor = White. Now, I have added a single ToolStripStatusLabel with Spring = True.

    Question What is the best way to update a RichTextBox?

    Yesterday I was working with a RichTextBox and decided to add some formatting to my logging (I've never formatted text in one before!! O_O) ...not quite what I expected! Now, normally I work with plain unformatted text and I have an imposed limit on the number of characters I allow to be...

    DataGridView Performance and Management

    I'm sure by now most of us have come across and/or used a DGV in some way or another. Personally I only ever used it for small result sets until recently and never had any issues with it. Now, however, I have had to use it for thousands of results (maxed at 50000 only) and even then there is a...
