    Format string centering columns

    Thanks Solitare, Thats similar to what I already worked out as a 'manual' way to do it. I was hoping that there was something simple that I was overlooking. In the string format sample that I submitted, -20 indicates left aligned field of 20, 20 means right aligned field of 20 and there is...

    I don't know if it would be a good idea or not but I am the only user and it would eliminate my having to hardcode a path or enter a command line path. More a matter of curiosity than anything else.

    Who Can Create Me a MACRO? Will Pay$$$

    Should have read ¢¢¢ not $$$ Five dollars, are you trying to kid somebody? That wouldn't pay for opening Visual Studio and just setting up a new project. And the part about more later. Reminds me of the old friend of Popeye the sailor, Wimpy. One of his sayings was "I will gladly pay you...

    Fast method to read text files

    I was in error in my last reply when I said that it took 3 and one half minutes. After seeing that I realize that something was terribly wrong there.

    Fast method to read text files

    How about using a Regex to do the searching? I don't honestly know. Maybe using SQL could be faster. I don't have a file to test the speed on. If it is not classified or proprietary you might make available or email a zip file of one that is truncated somewhat from 100MB to say 5 or 10MB. I...

    Trouble with System.Diagnostics.Process.Start passing arguments

    I had tried quite a while to run python with the arguments with no luck. I thought cmd.exe might be easier, it was not. I did make some changes and finally got it to work calling the python script. Thanks

    Concatenating images into columns and rows

    For my example I have 256 individual image tiles, each 256px width X 256px height. The goal is to concatenate these to a single image 4096px w X 4096px H.

    Ccommon controls toolbox, new objects names

    Thanks. Yes I won't spend too much time on this for now as the 'simple fix' I had hoped for didn't turn out to be that simple. I will play around with it for a while and get back to baby steps.
