    combobox hades!

    Is there an alternative? Thanks for the response. Maybe I'm trying to use the wrong component. Is there a simple dropdown similar to ASP.net that I can accomplish this with? If there is I certainly haven't found it. P.S. -- I had tried the binding to a table method but that didn't allow me to...

I want to display the name in the combobox dropdown and then use the associated id in the code. I've tried everyway I...

    Old DLL access from .Net

    You are correct Luckily I found an example of how to use the dll after I made my post. You are exactly correct. The example used "decalre" statements to delacre the available functions. I also found a newer version of the dll that is VB.net compatible for which I can just add a reference. That...

    Network programming

    I need to write a small vb.net application that will send a request to a https web server and receive a XML string back. The request will look roughly like this: https://www.webserver.com/dir1/dir2/filename.php?param1=text&param2=text&param3=text The string that it gets back will be XML. It...

    Adding Command Parameters

    The Loop! The reason for the loop was that I was moving data from an array into the database. I didn't realize that I was trying to re-define the parameter name by doing that. I fixed it by doing what you said. In researching this problem I learned that I can instantiate a SQLParameters...

    Adding Command Parameters

    Figured it out! It was because I had the cmd.parameter.add statements inside a For loop. I am moving the contents of an array to a DB, so I put it in a loop to step through the array. The problem is that you can't redefine the parameter again until you clear them, so all I had to do is add this...

    Adding Command Parameters

    I'm trying to learn how to use command parameters to do my SQL commands and seemed to have hit an impasse. I created the following code: cmd.CommandText = "Insert into PINS (PIN, ControlNumber, BatchID, Consumed) values (@PIN, @Control, @ID, @Consumed)" cmd.Parameters.Add("@PIN"...

    Early binding problem

    I'm a relatively new VB.net programmer so I hope there is not an obvious answer to my problem that I am missing. I created an Arraylist that contains instances of a structure. I want to use one data item from an instance of the structure to call a function. The return value from the function...
