    GDI+ Error

    Hi, I would imagine that yes there are alot of guest views. 227 vs less than 20? So what have we come up with? Leave more detailed posts? And this will make this a better forum? In any case, I am no longer knocking the forum, even if it seems like it. It was a different forum that I was...

    GDI+ Error

    Hi, Just look at this post! 227 views! 9 Replies? Nobody has had a gdi error? Nobody has any ideas on the stuff we are writing? Nobody wants to back up Neal? Nobody wants to back up me? Not saying that Neal nor I really need much backing up, but c'mon, nothing? -Edward

    Record exists?

    Hi, Paszt's method would work excellent. Another method would be to create a stored procedure. The stored procedure (something like this): ALTER PROCEDURE dbo.spDS_Date_Exist_Check ( @Date Date ) AS SET NOCOUNT OFF; Select count(*) From tblDates where Date = @Date //************** This...

    One or more rows contain values violating non-null, unique or foreign-key contraints.

    Hi, If you are not joining any tables, these errors (usually) mean that you have an error in your query, get a print out of your command string (selComm) and try to run the query. More than likely the query will not be accepted. So you debug the query and fix it, and they (records) will come...

    GDI+ Error

    Re: Making vb.net forums better Hi, If your forum is not the one that had moderated posts, then I humbly apologize. It must have been a forum that uses the same layout as this one. I think, a good way of getting answers is to make people answer. Something like, for every n (new topic) posts...

    Re: Whatever this topic is Hi, This is only one of the few posts that I have put on. I understand that it is vague, but look at the other posts, and not only from me. It is not moderated as of late. But it used to be. I realized that it was not moderated after I typed the post. In any case, I...

    Change background colour of a control on gotfocus

    Hi, you can create events in a form that is inherited by all of your forms. That way the event will be associated with each control, on every form. So if you like, create a form, put no controls on it (because the controls will be inherited also) and throw this code into it. Private Sub...

    Menu bar

    Have you tried to use visual inheritance? You have to make the control public, and you can then modify it in all of the child forms. -Edward

    how to design tip-of-the-day

    I do agree with paszt on the xml vs registry setting. Only problem is, if you want to hide settings from the user, registry is the way to go. XML can be edited by host of software and even notepad. But, it is true, MAYBE the user will not have permission to write to the registry, but that user...

    how to design tip-of-the-day

    I dont use the registry, so I can not give you an example, but, if you go into help, and search for that command, it will explain everything, much better than I can.
