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.
My website, www.maroisconsulting.com, is hosted on Arvixe. I would like to create a folder, put some files in it, then allow an app I'm working on the download the files. I've never done this before and I'm stuck
Here's my download code so far.
static WebClient wc;
static void Main(string args)
var fileUrl = "http://" + "www.maroisconsulting.com/SomePlace/SomeFile.txt"; // Broke it up so it would format here
wc = new WebClient();
wc.DownloadProgressChanged += Wc_DownloadProgressChanged;
wc.DownloadFileCompleted += Wc_DownloadFileCompleted;
wc.DownloadFileAsync(new Uri(fileUrl), @"c:\files\SomeFile.txt");
private static void Wc_DownloadFileCompleted(object sender, System.ComponentModel.AsyncCompletedEventArgs e)
Console.WriteLine("The download has been cancelled");
if (e.Error != null)
Console.WriteLine("An error ocurred while trying to download file" + Environment.NewLine + e.Error.Message);
Console.WriteLine("File succesfully downloaded");
private static void Wc_DownloadProgressChanged(object sender, DownloadProgressChangedEventArgs e)
Console.WriteLine(e.ProgressPercentage + "% | " + e.BytesReceived + " bytes out of " + e.TotalBytesToReceive + " bytes retrieven.");
When I run, the Wc_DownloadFileCompleted fires immediately with the error
The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.
When I go in to the Arvixe Control Panel, File Manager, for my site, the file does exist. Again, this is new to me so I am probably doing something wrong.
Can anyone show me how this is done?
If it's not broken, fix it until it is.
Everything makes sense in someone's mind.
Ya can't fix stupid.
I am working on a browser-based document scanning application for IE it is fine as we can do scanning through ActiveX or Add-ons etc but when it comes to modern browsers like latest chrome, firefox and edge it is very hard to call any .exe or other is related functions from client-side .. What is the option to invoke scanner from modern browsers and do necessary file I/o on client end... Please don't mention proprietary software I prefer to work with open-source solutions.. regard
I'm a language teacher, which means no programming or coding skills, but eager to learn.
I've spent the past day or two learning on how to create a website, domains, hosting and all that and there are a lot of tutorials on how to use WordPress and plug-ins like the Elementor which is quite easy to use and doesn't require much coding knowledge. Most of them focus on how to make stuff pretty and I got that part.
What do I need to use to create a database, so that people can register and then they get assigned an educational package based on their choosing or a diagnostic test. My web-page won't be that much complicated regarding graphics, but I am going to use a lot of layers, and it would be great if a person could log-in and continue where he stopped, if the page tracked his results, etc. Could somebody point me in the right direction, which tools do I need to use? Are there any tools like WordPress for this type of programming?
I would suggest you make use of the Wordpress helpline, as they are best placed to advise you what tools are available for your specific needs. They may well have some off the shelf back end system which would provide for your database needs, without you needing to hire a database programmer to do it for you.
I have never used Wordpress before so I could be wrong.
If I understand correctly, MySQL is the core of Wordpress so you already have a database, you will have to find a plugin to save your data to the database, I have found one on google but you will have to pay for it. You can do it yourself but it will require you to learn PHP and SQL.
I am facing the issue which is when we click on web print is disabled.And I disabled the web print but the issue is when i click on on web print the print dialogue is disappearing instead of the disappearing the dialogue box we can show there empty blank page im trying to do that please help me that.
I made a pool 8 ball, in nodejs where 2 players put some amount of money to the server before playing, the server where they send money to my paypal account using the client id and secret, but if a player wins he must earn (his money + the oponent money - as_server_I_take_some); so how can I send money to the winner, is there any implementation or transaction to be saved (I use node js paypal rest sdk).
I have a problem with a push sidebar menu. When the toogle button is clicked the page goes to the right .The problem is that I want the side bar menu to be next to the page just like the example that is in the picture . Also when i scroll down to the page ,I want the side bar menu to be fixed. I am only using css.
Download a static site with all the prebuilt html and css and view it in the browser. Next, think of some major or potentially difficult change you'd like to make to it with regard to layout, size, font, etc. With the help of the browser's developer tools, you'll be able to identify the styles that need to change for the elements involved. You'll learn something from the existing css, and you'll learn a lot by trying to mess with it.
Today, most people use a css framework like Bootstrap or Materialize for accomplishing the flexibility for different displays you're looking for. Read the API documentation for one of these frameworks and look through the examples. Alternatively, there's a nice React ui framework from Microsoft over at https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/fabric#/styles/web
It uses the same responsive grid layout principles that have become de facto standard.
I am wanting to develop a software package that can edit game cards online and offline. then when the user is online they can upload their work if they need to. Ideally this application will be accessible on computers and mobile phones. I have heard that HTML 5 is really good for mobile application development because it is multiplatform. I have also done some research and NET.Core is multi platform as opposed to NET.framework. I understand that for the mobile and desktop application these may need to be built seperately.
I am wondering where is best to start. Can WinForms in visual studio connect online? or it this purely a desktop application? do i need to create a different style project for online/offline capability?
I am not quite sure where to start here.
WinForms is solely a desktop technology. Furthermore, it's Windows-only technology.
HTML5 is solely a markup language so it is nothing more than a visual representation of your app. Still, as you've mentioned uploading cards this means to me that you need a backend to persist it.
The way I imagine it is that you have a backend server (you might use .net core for that). And you have clients for platforms you need to support. Once the backend server if not available for some reason you persist data in a client's local storage. Otherwise, you persist it on a backend.
I think you should research more on a client-server programming model.
