You are creating a new Form1 every time the Button is clicked in Form2. The OP hasn't stated whether this is what he needs, but normally the initial instance is required.
Additionally, these instances are only ever hidden and never closed - that's going to start using a lot of unnecessary memory very quickly!

"If you don't use Dispose your code will be disposed at closing application time": or not. There can be occasions (especially but not exclusively when handling unmanaged resources with PInvoke etc) where it may not happen. Disposing of intensive or unmanaged resources in a timely manner is good coding practice - using 'using' makes this far more convenient and there is no excuse normally for not doing so.
DaveyM69 17-Feb-13 7:32am View
   
The OP wants it the other way round, change Label's text in form 1 from form 2.
There are two ways to do this - constructor injection or an event. An event it the preferred and cleanest (most OOP) way. Refer to OriginalGriff's answer.

Rather than == "" it would be better to use String.IsNullOrEmpty(textBox.Text).
Also, exceptions should be more specific - ArgumentNullException would be a better choice here.

You generally only need to use fixed if the unmanaged function will mutate the data and you need it again afterwards - it prevents the GC moving the data in memory. GCHandle (when using GCHandleType.Pinned) is normally a better way for that though, or Marshal.AllocHGlobal - they both need to be freed if used so beware if you ever need them!

This is rarely a good solution, Griff's solution is the correct way to do this.

The remarks section says:
No conversions are performed. Therefore, the data retrieved must already be a single-precision floating point number.
Call IsDBNull to check for null values before calling this method.
I would start with those...

This will work only if the form loads before the timer ticks which is not guaranteed - a poor solution in my opinion.
There are several events raised by the form itself that may suffice (such as Shown) that would be more appropriate.

Is the pointer a pointer to unmanaged memory? If so, this will copy the data to a byte[] which can be serialized:
[Serializable]
public class Data
{
private byte[] data;

public Data(IntPtr handle, int length)
{
data = new byte[length];
Marshal.Copy(handle, data, 0, length);
}
}
DaveyM69 21-Jun-12 6:35am View
   
If the List is a list of class instances then each element will just hold a reference (4 bytes 32bit, 8 bytes 64bit). The overall memory used by the app will increase by the the size of all instances combined, but the List object itself will approximately be IntPtr.Size * Count.

"If MIDI sound sounds not realistic enough to you (which I understand; it means you have some musical hearing"
Rubbish!

Good quality professional instruments that use multiple high quality samples and MIDI generated by a musician that actually understands how the instrument (who's sound is trying to be replicated) works so can play accordingly can sound really incredibly good and discernible from an audio recording in many cases.
There is no concept of MIDI sound as it's just a digital description of a performance.

All properties have a default value, the value depends on the type. In general, for value types it is 0 or the type's equivalent, for reference types it is null.

In the case of user controls, the default value can be set using the DefaultValue attribute, and a TypeConverter if one is needed.

Good point - in winDef.h BOOL is defined like:
typedef int BOOL;
therefore, the return type should be an Int32 not bool (also not an IntPtr as that is 8 bytes on 64bit).
Edit: Updated to reflect this.

Forgive me if I sound rude but I am perfectly clear on how interfaces work! Don't assume that because I'm not understanding you fully that my knowledge is lacking in the language fundementals.

It seems I may have misunderstood, you see this as an alternative for passing entire form instance references? I rarely pass an entire form and certainly wouldn't to facilitate the communication of one value as the OP wanted. I use the event/delegate method for this (or keep a reference in the owner) and was trying to understand how your interface fitted into this - the answer is it doesn't. You are simply using an interface (as a parameter to a constructor or similar I assume) to couple the forms as a slightly better alternative to coupling to a specific concrete implementation of a form.

Tight coupling of this kind, even if done with an interface, is something I avoid wherever possible.

Edit: I assume you mean something like this...
public interface IOwner
{
void SetText(string text);
}

public partial class FormMain : Form, IOwner
{
public FormMain()
{
InitializeComponent();
}

public void SetText(string text)
{
Text = text;
}
}

public partial class FormOther : Form
{
private IOwner owner;

public FormOther()
: this(null)
{ }
public FormOther(IOwner owner)
{
InitializeComponent();
this.owner = owner;
}

private void SetOwnerText(string text)
{
if (owner != null)
{
owner.SetText(text);
}
}
}

"Do not reduce the idea an absurd. No. You can implement only one or, say, two." This is the bit that concerns me most. In the property or event convention, when something changes we generally set a property to a single type of value or raise an event with data of a single value - we don't pass the entire object. You on the other hand are saying to pass an entire interface with possibly many properties (or keeping a constant reference to one - I understand a delegate does this too) every time just one value has changed.

If only one thing has changed or is about to change etc, that should be the only information presented/passed IMO, there is no need for an entire interface to be given each time.

I don't disagree that yours is a convenient approach and will work well, I just fail to see any advantage over the traditional and widely used approaches that are quite adequate for all situations.

I will experiment with it however, and if you and Bill do collaberate, please let me know as I would be very interested to see exactly how you implement this in a real world situation :-)
DaveyM69 6-Nov-11 9:50am View
   
Hi SAK, I have seen this answer of yours before and not responded as I wanted to ponder on your suggestion. However, I'm still having difficulty in seeing the benifit of using an interface over setting a property or sending a custom EventArgs depending on the direction of communication.
Interfaces are normally more suited to a particular functionality (eg IComparable) or a representation of a common object where an abstract class is not desired. While they can be used in this situation I'm not sure what we gain when passing discrete values. In fact, to ensure only the relavent data is available in a complex object such as a form we would need to create and implement many small interfaces so we only pass the interface that has the particular data required.

A couple of minor comments...
I don't like your method of blindly adding the deliminator even if it's not required and then creating an extra string by using Trim! Also, this will only take care of (with the parameterless Trim method), whitespace deliminators. You talk about maintainability, the deliminator requirement may change. This would be better IMO:

bool notFirst = false;
foreach(int number in numbers)
{
if(notFirst)
sb.Append(delimiter);
notFirst = true;
sb.Append(number.ToString());
}
txtNorth.Text = sb.ToString();

You say "//anonymous delegate is the best" - why? For readability and maintainability a good old method is far better IMO. It also allows for code reuse if needed as the method could be called from elsewhere.

Hi Luc,
True, it's just a habit I've got into from being caught out occaisionally by objects that don't implement the == and != operators. If they do iplement them they will use object.ReferenceEquals() in their equality checks against null anyway so no overhead, more readable without perhaps ;)

"In my opinion, as you cannot produce really unique sound, all this is not really good to create real "analog" music good for performance, say, for writing and distributing audio CDs. If you listen MIDI music for a long time you may feel irritated by its "mechanical" sound, because all the sounds are essentially repeated many time without having unique sounds typical for life music."
I do not agree - it depends on the quality of the MIDI recording and the device(s) used for playback. I use MIDI for recording (digital) piano alongside an audio recording of vocals for a duo. The PC then plays the Piano back exactly as I played it, nothing mechanical at all about it.
This reputation comes from people using software tricks such as quantizing where not appropriate and the poor quality sound of some early MIDI instruments and most soundcards (all the built in ones!) that people use to play back on later - neither of these are the fault of MIDI.

Wrap the code in your watcher_EventArrived method in a try catch and inspect the thread ID in the catch as I suspect it will be different when the exception is thrown.

This can only happen if the RunWorkerAsync is called from a non UI thread or called before the SynchronizationContext is set (normally happens when calling from a form's constructor - the Load event and beyond are fine) as an AsyncOperation is created which handles Post/PostOperationCompleted to the UI thread via the SynchronizationContext.

@programmer095: This is the way all processors work (as far as I know). It makes sense really. 0x0000 - 1 must be 0xFFFF so therefore for a signed 16bit value 0xFFFF must be -1.

The answer is - it depends! Is the C++ function actually returning a char[] or a pointer to one? Where is the length of the array specified - in a parameter or a constant, or is it a null terminated one in which case it's really a string?
The easiest way for us to help you is if you give us the original C++ function declaration, from there it's normally pretty easy.

As o isn't used outside the foreach there is no need to declare it outside. Declaring inside keeps the scope limited as it should be:

This is good except for your OnSomeValueChanged method. There are two problems.
1. There is a possible race condition. SomeValueChnged could become null between the null check and the next line where you fire the event. To guard against this, make a copy of SomeValueChanged:
EventHandler eh = SomeValueChanged;
then use eh from that point.
2. It's generally better to pass the args to the OnXxx method as a parameter and make the OnXxx method protected virtual. This makes it possible to be easily overridden later in deriving classes.

1. Public properties in the object that raises an event is another way. The downside is (to handle this correctly) you would need to use the sender parameter in the handler and cast it to the correct type to have access to those properties. Having them in the args is cleaner. Remember, the subscriber can use one handler for many events from different objects so long as the signatures are the same. Your suggestion makes that unworkable.

2. A bad idea due to the coupling created between objects. I would always avoid this!

3. Just to pass text it is maybe sometimes a little overkill, but using this principle any amount of data can be passed in one go.

Your suggestions are valid but, in my opinion apart from very simple situations that will never need to change with scope creep, not as useful or as observing of OOP principles.

pinvoke.net is a good guide - be careful though as there are many incorrect submissions on there. The most common mistake I've found is using int instead of IntPtr. This will be OK normally on 32 systems, but has a reasonably high probability of failing if ever run on a 64bit OS.
Moral: Check the signatures against those declared in the relavent C/C++ header file or MSDN page and correct if needed.

Glad you got it sorted! Strings are pesky little buggers as in .NET they are not null terminated char arrays as they are in C/C++ so pointers from the managed world are often not valid as string pointers in the unmanaged world even when using the MarshalAs attribute.

There is no difference in code between WinForms and Console with the following exceptions...

Nasty! Killing processes is almost never the correct thing to do, especially when it's a basic design issue that can be fixed through a little code alteration.

Form2 should have a property (or properties) that can be set after instanciation from form1 (but before being shown) and then either...
form2 creates form3 and does the same
or
form2 raises an event and in the handler form1 creates & does it's thing with form3

"Or just rip the CAPS LOCK key off your keyboard" - my kind of solution!

Fair enough. Under the CPOL as I understand it you can use it (change it if needed) and give it away if you so wish so long as you retain any copyright notices in the code and don't pass those sections as your own work.

"not advisable from programming point of view"
What other point of view is there?

There is no concrete answer - take a modern browser such as IE or FF. They both use an SDI with a tabbed interface. This could be equally be done with separate windows instead of tabs for an MDI. Which one you prefer or is better for your situation only you can decide.

WaveInGetNumDevs gets all audio inputs on the system. If you have multiple soundcards then all the inputs are added together. To determine which is which you need to examine their capabilities.
Microphone and line in are part of a soundcard, they are not separate.

I (and I suspect most other users here) haven't used 'Peachtree' so I have no idea what you mean. If you explain more clearly what you want and why existing controls can't do it we may be able to help!

Instead of calling AllocConsole in Main, call it from where you want it - don't forget to move and call FreeConsole where appropriate too!

If using BackgroundWorker.ProgressChanged event it will already be on the UI thread so no need to Invoke ;-)

I have edited your post so it makes sense and formatted it - however, both the original and your suggestion will produce identical results (if true, but your 'improvement' will not set the Checked property to false when required).

This is an English speaking site. I would suggest editing your question so it can be read by the site's members or posting on a site based in your own country. I am not being 'languagist', but it's unlikely that many will be able to help you if they can't understand the question!
