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 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.

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?

Hello those who are reading, I am a beginner in programmer and currently frequent in C#. I am working on building a cross-platform mobile application and I am confused on what to do. I know what I want my application to do and I am done with making the sketches and connecting them. Now I do not know how to proceed. ANY HELP/ADVICE WILL BE VERY APPRECIATED. THANK YOU.
1) I want to integrate Apple Pay on my website (so it's a Apple Pay - Web Integration), using the Braintree payment provider, JS as a client side language and Java as a server side language.
I'm having difficulties creating a proper sandbox environment for my Apple Pay implementation Testing.
Followed the steps from the Apple docs but it seems they are not accurate :
-says to create a Merchant Id, one for sandbox and one for production (as far as I can see, at the moment of creating those 2, there's no way of telling that you want to use one for the development environment and the other for the production)
- after that, says to create a Certificate using the Merchant ID created before; if I sign in to my Apple Developer Account, I can see the 'Development' and the 'Production' sections, but when I try to create a sandbox/development certificate, Apple Pay is not available for it, only in the production section (see below images).
Is there a way to create a Sandbox / Development Apple Pay certificate, or are there any other ways to properly test the Apple Pay integration ?
2) I tried creating a sandbox user tester account from iTunes, but when I tried to login on Itunes on my Ipad which I'm using for testing, I get the following error: 'Itunes account creation not allowed. This Apple ID cannot be used with the Itunes Store at this time. Please try again later.' (I already verified my Apple ID and followed all the steps to activate the account, but without any success)
3) As I was trying to create Sandbox Apple Pay certificates I mistakenly created 2 for the production environment. Could I revoke them without any problems and create another ones ?
If you integrated Apple Pay on the WEB, I would highly appreciate any help, since I'm having such difficulty in simply setting up my testing environment.
This is normal with windows10 for a universal application since it is the OS that manages the permission of the user OK fine !!! But my app is automatically compatible windows 8.x at submission store and it fails since with 8.x it is the programmer who manages the authorization with the code:
Var accessStatus = await Geolocator.RequestAccessAsync (); Request access
Switch (accessStatus) // test accessStatus
In Visual Studio 2015 no definition in geolocator for requestaccessasync (), (only "equal" and "reference equal") I've been searching for a week.how can i
I have problem to create running leds with Raspberry PI 3 Windows IOT, but random led blink does work.
The code for both are almost the same, only diffrent runnings leds is controlled by variable count and random led
is generated with random generator.
The running led code is below this text. I will get only the first led to light, and rest of leds stays dark. Can someone see what's wrong with this code?
But the random blink led works, which comes after this running leds code and both codes almost identically, but still the running leds code does not work.

This isn't any more of a question than your vague posting in QA. There isn't any need to cross post all over the place. And, "I'm doing my project" means nothing to us and isn't an answer to question that anyone has asked you so far.
I'm investigating and exploring what technology to recommend for our development team's mobile application development. I have previous experience using Xamarin.Android (but not Xamarin.Forms), and my manager has previous experience with Telerik Platform (but not NativeScript).
We're looking to build fairly straight-forward apps with limited use of the device's capabilities in the future (e.g. the camera). The apps we have are currently responsive web pages but we want to start using some of the device features hence why we want to write apps.
From my own explorations thus far.
- Uses C# which we are already familiar with
- I have previous experience with Xamarin.Android
- It's part of Visual Studio
- It has great integration with the .NET ecosystem
- You need to write separate code for all device specific functionality
- You need to download and install the Windows Phone emulators to develop for the Windows Phone (which has thus far failed on my dev PC as I need to enable virtualisation in my BIOS)
- You need a Mac to develop for iOS
At the time of writing I have only managed to get a basic Android device running in the VS IDE
- One codebase for all mobile platforms
- Access to the NPM ecosystem of modules
- No support for Windows Phone (although Telerik have stated that this will be addressed in a future release)
I really like Xamarin.Forms but so far Telerik NativeScript seems easier to use with some great debugging tools and clean and consistent UI.
I've been looking into both tools over the last few days and they both have their pros and cons, so I'd appreciate any thoughts from others who may have ideas, suggestions, thoughts etc.

Thanks for this, it's really useful. I'm currently looking into different types of mobile responsive development and design. Would be interested to know what you think of this articleI found online.
I am new to the world of app development, do you agree with the fonts recommended that are recommended in the above article?
