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.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
When answering a question please:
Read the question carefully
Understand that English isn't everyone's first language so be lenient of bad spelling and grammar
If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or mark it down. Insults are not welcome
If the question is inappropriate then click the 'vote to remove message' button
Insults, slap-downs and sarcasm aren't welcome. Let's work to help developers, not make them feel stupid.
Your example lead me to this, found on another site:
PublicSub getData(ByVal gType AsString)
Dim addr As Uri = New Uri("http://smarthome.trab.dk/wpf/getData.php?g=" + gType)
Dim client AsNew WebClient()
AddHandler client.DownloadStringCompleted, AddressOf client_DownloadStringCompleted
EndSubPrivateSub client_DownloadStringCompleted(sender AsObject, e As DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs)
Dim data AsString = e.Result
I know this forum is mainly for developers. But just curious anyone does not only wanna do coding work, but also has some interests of designing a mobile game together?
My idea is to design a small but creative strategy game. It's gonna release in AppStore. The story of the game is that the player drives a spacecraft to explore the unknown universe and look for a planet that fits for human being to live. The story is inspired by the movie - Interstellar. I like it so so much. The game strategy is mainly about designing a most effective way of upgrading your spacecraft so that you could travel farther. I personally like hard sci-fic so I want the game to be visually hard sci-fic. In my current design, I'm looking at a 1 man/month coding work size of project so I'm looking for just one experienced developer to work with. If anyone happened to be a hard sci-fic fan or just be interested in making such a game, please let me know. We could talk more. I'm pretty confident that the gameplay is very attractive. And I have some creative design for in-game-purchase so we are not doing charity. But the very first thing is I need a trustworthy partner. Are you the one?
By the way, I don't think we have to sit together to work on the game. So, where you and I live is not a question. We can work out some doable procedure to make sure it's a healthy remote working relationship.
