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.

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

Does anyone know of an app that can read a QR code and can access the device's unique ID (either phone number, mac address, or...).
On the other hand, I suppose I could use a cookie (that expires after 24 hours or something like that) to identify a device...

I've let your message through, but deleted the link as it looks very much like site driving spam, which is why it was sent to moderation in the first place.
Given how long you have been here, I don't think it was deliberate but please do not link to your site again or the more trigger happy among us will start the process of banning you from this site.

AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
With my project (Coco2d-x) open in Xcode and my (registered developer) Apple account as the [Team] the system does not recognise the iPhone (logged into iCloud with my registered developer account) when it is plugged into the usb.
If I switch my [Team] in Xcode to 'None' or use a non-developer registered AppleID as the [Team] the iPhone is recongised.
Please tell me what steps I need to take to allow Xcode to 'see' the phone when I am using my 'proper' developer AppleID?
When I want to select from a dropdown box on a desktop browser I can use the keyboard to type a letter to cut the searching short, e.g. press K and the list will jump to entries starting with K. Unfortunately this does not work on my BB (not sure about Android or iPhone) and I don't know if it is even possible on mobile to achieve a similar result.
BB just shows the dropdown box and forces me to scroll the entire list. I have already shortened the list but the number of entries can still be substantial (50 - 100 entries).
I have searched high and low to see if I can force a keyboard to pop up or jump to specific entries but came up empty.
Any help would be appreciated.
Provide a "filter" above the list that allows you to type a letter (e.g., K). As each letter is typed, the list will be refreshed with only those items that start with (or contain) the typed letter(s).
I did this very thing in an Android app that had a semi-large list of bullet calibers. As I typed a character, the list would only show those calibers starting with what I had typed (e.g., .30 would show calibers .30, .30-30, .300, .307, .308, .30-06, .30-378, .303).

Thanks David. Not sure if that's what you're saying but I am not developing a mobile app but want to do it for a mobile website.
However, I will start looking for anything that will allow me to filter on a website. If you can suggest any places I should look I'd appreciate it.
Btw I do not use ASP or .net
David, great suggestion.
Found just what I was looking for here http://jsfiddle.net/x6cfF/4/
For those who want to filter long dropdown boxes with many entries, you may want to look into that. I now use it whenever I can.
Short and sweet and works like a charm. By default it only finds entries starting with what you type but it can be tweaked to find entries where the text appears anywhere in the entries.
Maybe I have some CE gurus lurking here - the post is free.... I've got a CE 5.0 application that has started reporting Fatal Application Errors under the "right" circumstances:
Fatal Application Error
Applicaton block block has performed an illegal....
Program: block block
When I say block block clearly the final exception handler has garbage data there (think a hollow graphical block). Considering my application has a dozen threads, 6 processes, etc. it would be nice to populate these fields.
I don't see anything in CreateProcess, CreateThread, etc. Anyone know if this can be done?
