    Backing up datagridview for restore ability

    I use a datagridview to populate important data that may be accumulating for 6 months at a time. I would like to periodically back up the incoming data. If the system shuts off or similar, we can just restore the data. Since there might be thousands of rows and 11 columns, I hope to do this very...

    Form open causing me to not be able to access other form

    This seems like a silly question - I have not sat down to work on this program in a month or so. When I open a specific form, it causes me to not be able to click the forms behind it. It flashes and will only let me use that one form until I close it. Any clues why???

    How to insert menu bar tabs both vertical and horizontal?

    First off, I am not even sure menu tabs are a thing. I have (multiple) forms with many, many options. But I need these options consolidated or things get confusing. A really nice way to do this would be using items on a bar under my buttons on the top of the form. I already use the options for...

    Can I tell if a button is currently being pressed? (real time)

    I use interrupt code for mouse down and mouse up actions for motor control. I simply use flags to control when to turn motor on or off.

    Making new forms not have multiples open

    I have 5 or 6 forms in a program. Currently, each time the user opens a form, another copy of the same form is opened even if one copy is currently open. This cannot happen in my program and simply makes the program looks sloppy. How can I prevent this? Thx

    I need to update a real time display with information for 7 bytes of data every 300ms or so. When receiving the seven bytes, I get all (correct) data for the first receive event. After the first receive event I usually I only receive 1 byte. Changing the threshold does not seem to help...
