For those new to message boards please try to follow a few simple rules when posting your question.
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 "<" (and other HTML) characters when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Use HTML in this post" check box is checked.
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 into an unrelated forum such as the lounge. It will be deleted. Likewise, do not post the same question in more than one forum.
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.
Web is supposed to be the platform of preference, and the latest version is supposed to be updated to current requirements, but I still have to jump through hoops to get basic things like number formatting and handling... I don't get it
Maybe I shouldn't expect things like localisation to work, even though it works in XAML with virtually no effort.
I bind a decimal value to a read only field, when I want to parse it back to a decimal it fails because I have a . instead of a , - ARGH
Be brave little warrior, be VERY brave
I have a cafe with internet connection for customers.
And I have a PHP signin page.
I want to know how can I make the connection for internet enabled when the user signin with given PIN, otherwise he'll just get my signin screen just like the hotspots available in some cafes and hotels?
I'm a web application developer, and i've been doing it for ten years using c#, the .NET framework, visual studio express and MS SQL Express on an IIS server.
Now, i've been asked to program a complex CRUDS web application using a XML native database and only free tools.
As i understand it, there is very little possibility to use the .NET framework or even IIS to build web apps with that kind of database, so i looked for other technologies.
The most well known and well documented free XML native database seems to be eXist-db, which apparently comes bundled with a web app development tool called BetterForm (based on the XForms technology if i'm not mistaken).
It also seems that, apart from XForms, the most widely used technology to build web apps with a XML native database, is java with servlets.
I have zero experience in XForms; i know some java (i'm probably a bis rusty since i've not written any java code for the last 8 years, but it's quite similar to c#), but have no experience or skill with servlets and java web apps (i just know it has to use some kind of web server with a servlet container like Tomcat - says volumes about the extent of my ignorance). I also know some php, but am not aware of the possibilities it offers to work with an XML native db.
Given that i very much like the easiness and quickness of use of the GUI and data tools of the .NET Framework and their integration in Visual Studio Express, and that i want to write as few HTML as possible, which technology and tools (emphasis on IDE - wysiwyg à la Visual Studio would be ideal) would you suggest i use.
If you make a plain html template, put a div in the body with the class mentioned, and use your class attributes like above in a style element in the header it does just what I think you want: a box with a border around it ( I did add a width and height to the div so I could see it ). First thought is that maybe a subsequent css file called for in the html file is overriding your class settings? Try placing your css file with this class above as last in your style element section of your html file and see if that changes anything.
I am creating an HTA to perform a custom backup. I would like to use an HTML readonly textarea control as a space that will receive logging output. Whenever I need to log an activity, I'd like to write a new line to the textarea which means you will see multiple lines and you should be able to scroll through them.
If I use the line below, I see it displayed, no problem.
txtLog.value = "Input has been determined to be valid - continuing"
When I try to write another line, the first one disappears and the new line is visible. I have tried to use vbCr, vbLf, and vbCrLf. If I use the line shown below, the cursor moves to the next line but the first line is erased.
txtLog.value = vbCrLf & "Output: Line2"
How do I write multiple lines to the textarea during runtime, have no lines erased and allow for a scrollbar? I do see a scrollbar grayed out so I am assuming that it will appear when the number of rows specified in the textarea tag have been exceeded.
I have done some searching but haven't found an answer so far. I'm hoping someone in this forum may be familiar with how to do this.
If you have VB and VB.NET experience then the simple answer would be to build a web application using ASP.NET. The next question would be on whether you should build it using web forms or MVC. For simple applications then web forms is ideal. For more complex applications then you could consider MVC.
It really depends on what the needs of the application are, and finding the right balance between those and your skill set.
I had developed a dot net website in c#.I want to embed a video in my website,which should be compatible in all browsers without using html5.I had tried but the video is playing or compatible on IE only.What should i do.please provide some suggestions or code.I will be grateful to you.
I have developed MVC3 website and deployed it on IIS7 server.
When I test the site just by running it from my solution, the layouts works fine with IE8 and firefox browsers. But once I give the URL which is taken from the server, my design layout is not getting applied to IE8 browser but works fine with firefox.
<title><asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID="TitleContent" runat="server" /></title>
<link href="~/Content/Site.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="~/Content/Calander/jquery-ui.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="~/Content/jquery-ui.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
script tags workes fine but the Link tags are not recognized properly in IE8
Please help me to sort this out
Thank you very much
