Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode HTML tags when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Ignore HTML tags in this message" check box is unchecked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question in one forum from another, unrelated forum (such as the lounge). It will be deleted.

Hello guys.I recently traveled somewhere in a certain city and i discovered that their happens to be a lot of phone snatching especially to passengers in vehicles.What i discovered is that phones are snatched over the bus window without the passengers aware since most of them are busy texting on social media.
A thought came to me of whether their could be an app which detects the current user location and sends an sms alert telling him to be carefully.Like a message warning him that the location you are now entering is insecure.Please take care of your phone .This would make sure that once users get that sms they can stop for some minutes what they are doing.Imagine loosing your expensive phone ?Its so sad.Can their be such a solution?
Here was my thought.Users can mark those locations that are insecure and would save the coordinates of those areas.So once the app detects you are in a certain area which is marked unsafe in our database,then an sms can be send .My major point of concern is the workability part.
1)How can such app communicate in a real time manner considering yo have to ensure the user's battery charge is not wasted?
2)Does it mean that with such an app it needs to be on everytime checking the user location against the locations in the db?
Those are some of major points of concern am worried about.
Basically what happens is the phone snatchers knock the bus windows so fast that by the time you get to hide your phone,they have already managed to open the window and grabbed the phone.They have mastered the art of opening the windows and this happens when the passengers are stuck in a traffic jam hence becoming an opportunity for the phone snatchers.
I currently use a couple of Mobile banking apps.
Benefit - convenience e.g. being able to transfer money immediately
Risks - I'm concerned about using them except via mobile data for security reasons. In theory if I lose my phone no-one can access my bank details ... in theory!
I also use an app called Duolingo as I'm re-learning French (39 years after last studying it!).
Benefits - convenience and I get daily reminders to do my practice. I can do the practice anywhere, anytime.
Risks - not really a "risk" in the real sense but it can be buggy and the pronunciation isn't always accurate.
Benefit - easy to share photos and convenient to communicate (without talking)
Risk - it's been hacked in the past.
Benefit - keeps me up to date with the soccer scores
Risks - Depression when my team(s) keep losing
Benefit - can adjust my heating when not at home (saves money, gets house warm before I return)
Risks - none that I can think of.
There's a few others - benefits are generally convenience. I don't use unsecured apps if I need to provide any personal info.
Risk is generally that I'm never off my phone so RSI and neck aches are likely to result
Sadaf, Many thanks for your feedback. Have you ever came across anyone having issue with Banking Apps? Also we usually ignore (including myself) to read the licensing terms of these Mobile Apps. Have you ever read them? Now there has been speculation about all the data being tapped in to. Do you think if this is an issue with any of the Apps?
You have posted this 3 times so I am going to tidy up the duplicates for you. Your messages keep appearing in the moderation queue so be patient before attempting to repost.
You gave a lot more detail when you attempted to post this question as a Article - I suggest you Edit this post to add the extra detail that you had before - again be patient and wait for the site to update.
I want to read .dbf file on Network such as
Windows Mobile 5.0 Windows CE using C#
This my Code but it does not work
SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection("Data Source=//192.168.0.16/Ovnbol1000/"); // give your path directly
SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter("select * from KUND.DBF", con); // update this query with your table name
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
int i = ds.Tables.Rows.Count;
know I'm dumb... really... but what am I missing here - (apart form a screw or two...)
I've never developed an app for a mobile device in my life, but every time I look into it, it seems so incredibly... complicated.
Suppose I want to build a simple app that asks you to enter your name, click a button, and it will say Hello to you.
SO... my question then is: what else (avoiding sledgehammers) do I need to do to wrap this up as an open cross-platform app for smartphones? Or am I barking up the wrong tree (in the wrong forest, even)...?
Thanks again though.
Hi all, I have just joined ios development course in Toronto in Cestar College of Business, Health and Technology. In my knowledge core java is basic for these both. What is the major difference between both these courses. I mean what are the main modules included in these courses. Expecting your replies. Thank you.
You joined a course that didn't started with pointing out the different approaches of different platforms? Demand your money back! Now!
In iOS the main development is based on Objective-C or Swift (both C-like languages) and not on Java. Even in Android Java used as a language and not as a platform (means no Java libraries presented as part of the development environment).
If you want to target all (most) mobile platforms you should look for cross-platform development tools, like Xamarin Studio or Cordova...
However - I would advise you to take slow steps if this is your first time as developer...Learn basic things unrelated to platform, and then target a single platform and only then go multi-platform...
Skipper: We'll fix it. Alex: Fix it? How you gonna fix this? Skipper: Grit, spit and a whole lotta duct tape.
I have question about testing my web application in window phone. i was made one application in Asp.net(c#) in this application i use Canvas Control for users digital signature. my application working fine in Android and i-phone application . Now i want to test this application on window phone . so there is any way to test application in window phone from my Visual Studio 2012 or any Emulator for that.
Also, you can load your webapp in mobile browser to test it. If you don't have the required device, you can install the Visual Studio Community Edition (FREE)[^] and try directly in the emulator. Hope this helps.
Vote up or Mark as Answered, if this information helped you.

I’m developing a responsive website to one of my client, while working in local host is there any tool to test responsiveness instead of checking responsive after website is hosted in server.
Also provide method of testing.
I am developing an app for Windows Phone 8.1 by using XALM and C# within a Windows Universal Project.
My problem is that the background images of the buttons do not correctly scale.
I want to use an image as the background of a button and the image should always scale to maximum size of the button, but keep the correct ratio (a circle shall always look like a circle and not like an ellipse!).
then the image is not cut and looks OK, but only on 16:9 devices such as Lumia 640 XL.
On 15:9 devices auch as Lumia 520 there is a distortion: a circle looks like an elipse!
The image is not correctly scaled: the aspect ratio is not perserved!
But you are asking for opinions. In my opinion what the developers are asking for is quite reasonable. However, without knowing all the details of the product they are trying to create, that opinion is not based on anything concrete.
I am facing problem in updating wide live tile while switching from Square Tile to Wide Tile in windows universal app development. It is working fine in windows surface and Desktop but coming to phone it is not updating Wide tile could any one please help me?
By default Wide Tile is working fine for us but when we change it from Square Tile to wide tile it is not working in emulator.
Here is our total Sample code:
var _tileXml = TileUpdateManager.GetTemplateContent(TileTemplateType.TileSquare150x150PeekImageAndText03);
var tileImage = _tileXml.GetElementsByTagName("image") as Windows.Data.Xml.Dom.XmlElement;
var tileText = _tileXml.GetElementsByTagName("text");
(tileText as Windows.Data.Xml.Dom.XmlElement).InnerText = "xyz";
(tileText as Windows.Data.Xml.Dom.XmlElement).InnerText = "ABC";
(tileText as Windows.Data.Xml.Dom.XmlElement).InnerText = "EFGH";
(tileText as Windows.Data.Xml.Dom.XmlElement).InnerText = "IJKL";
var tileNotification = new TileNotification(_tileXml);
Windows.Data.Xml.Dom.XmlDocument tileXml = TileUpdateManager.GetTemplateContent(TileTemplateType.TileWide310x150PeekImageAndText02);
var tileText1 = tileXml.GetElementsByTagName("text");
(tileText1 as Windows.Data.Xml.Dom.XmlElement).InnerText ="xyz";
(tileText1 as Windows.Data.Xml.Dom.XmlElement).InnerText = "ABC";
(tileText1 as Windows.Data.Xml.Dom.XmlElement).InnerText = "EFGH";
(tileText1 as Windows.Data.Xml.Dom.XmlElement).InnerText ="IJKL";
(tileText1 as Windows.Data.Xml.Dom.XmlElement).InnerText = "Sample App";
var tileImage = tileXml.GetElementsByTagName("image") as Windows.Data.Xml.Dom.XmlElement;
