Why would you need to? I see no need for involving time.
Why not simply use Textbox_TextChange to toggle the state of the Label's Visible property?

Definitely avoid Interop.
I prefer to use the ACE Engine and the OleDb ADO.net classes.

Maybe you want a switch/case statement?
Or Reflection?

Among other things, you need to learn about separation of concerns.

For what purpose?
PIEBALDconsult 17-Feb-17 14:50pm View
   
Responding to ancient questions, particularly with a link to some site, is questionable behaviour and may be abusive. Please don't do that.
PIEBALDconsult 13-Feb-17 20:25pm View
   
By using your brain, and maybe a notepad.
PIEBALDconsult 13-Feb-17 19:31pm View
   
Which base?
PIEBALDconsult 11-Feb-17 0:18am View
   
Don't care.
The spec says "collection of items" -- a NULL _should_ result in an Exception.
PIEBALDconsult 10-Feb-17 19:33pm View
   
It ought to. Depends on how the type is defined. I leave all the heavy lifting up to the Dictionary, so blame Microsoft if it doesn't work. :shrug:
PIEBALDconsult 10-Feb-17 11:58am View
   
I find that a Dictionary works better.
PIEBALDconsult 10-Feb-17 10:56am View
   
Surely, you're maintaining only _references_ to the items.
And I expect that two Hashsets is overkill.
PIEBALDconsult 6-Feb-17 8:56am View
   
Does that return only the maximum sum? Not the subarray?
PIEBALDconsult 5-Feb-17 20:17pm View
   
Word.
PIEBALDconsult 5-Feb-17 18:59pm View
   
If you seek the _longest_ subarray with the greatest sum, it's [ 1 , -1 , 2 ]
PIEBALDconsult 5-Feb-17 15:45pm View
   
I can only suspect that it involves the oddities of integer mathematics.
PIEBALDconsult 5-Feb-17 1:11am View
   
But there are two congruent yet distinct solutions.
PIEBALDconsult 4-Feb-17 23:03pm View
   
I think that part of the spec is total BS.
PIEBALDconsult 4-Feb-17 23:02pm View
   
I agree. Unclear and weird spec.

Pedants. The word is pedants. (He said pedantically.)
PIEBALDconsult 4-Feb-17 20:58pm View
   
Right on. (Both of you.)
In my opinion (though not in my implementation), there may be multiple result sets.
The question from 2015-07 asked for the longest subarray, but there may yet be more than one suitable result set.
PIEBALDconsult 4-Feb-17 19:24pm View
   
But there are more subarrays that sum to 5 in there.
PIEBALDconsult 4-Feb-17 19:18pm View
   
No, it's asking for an array, not the sum.
PIEBALDconsult 4-Feb-17 19:17pm View
   
Probably.
PIEBALDconsult 4-Feb-17 19:05pm View
   
How about building a Dictionary<int,HashSet<int[]>> ?
Then enumerate each array, putting elements in the Dictionary.
Then, given an element from array X, you can look whether or not the set of arrays that contain that element contains array Y.
PIEBALDconsult 4-Feb-17 14:35pm View
   
Does that satisfy the specification "find the set of consecutive numbers ... the answer is an ... array" ?
PIEBALDconsult 4-Feb-17 14:30pm View
   
No "solution" should be provided for such a noobish question.
PIEBALDconsult 4-Feb-17 11:44am View
   
What should be the result of
5 -5 5 -10 5 -5 5

Or even:
5 -5 5 -5 5

PIEBALDconsult 4-Feb-17 11:35am View
   
Which compiler are you using?
PIEBALDconsult 4-Feb-17 11:25am View
   
I see only
Statement missing ; in function main
because you left the semi-colon off one of your statements -- you should be able to figure it out.
PIEBALDconsult 4-Feb-17 10:58am View
   
I disagree with an empty array summing to zero.
PIEBALDconsult 4-Feb-17 10:50am View
   
I did, but in C#. I guess I can post it anyway.
Done.

Pffft. Arrays are sooo last millenium.

You should not have the communication code within your GUI code. It should be in its own class. Instantiate one object of that class and allow each Form to use that one instance.

Well, if I knew how to access .net from Pascal... :cool:
PIEBALDconsult 29-Jan-17 23:54pm View
   
My algorithm uses it. If I could be assured of 64 or fewer strings, I'd use bitwise operators on an Int64 instead.
PIEBALDconsult 29-Jan-17 20:52pm View
   
On the other hand...
Turbo Pascal (5.5+) has OOP, and HP Pascal probably doesn't -- I learned "data structures" on VAX/DEC/HP Pascal back in the 80s.
I have a working implementation in C# to prove an algorithm I devised.
But I would have to implement HashSet and Dictionary myself and I don't think I'm up to that at this time.
PIEBALDconsult 29-Jan-17 17:32pm View
   
I might have an XP disc around here somewhere, but I wouldn't send you my key.

I did, both are OK in my opinion. I have no problem with these questions. His attitude lacks a bit though.
PIEBALDconsult 29-Jan-17 12:34pm View
   
I don't really understand question.
The Sieve algorithm requires that you start at the start, not in the middle.
It is possible to _extend_ a sieve -- if, say, you have a Sieve from 1 to 100 and want to extend it to 200, you can use the Primes you already found and then start from 101.
But I see no way to simply start at 101 and go to 200 without having the set of Primes that precede that range.
You could even have a database of Primes if you like.

This is not an answer, please delete it.

Ahem, I, too, enjoy doing Sieves as exercises.
PIEBALDconsult 29-Jan-17 12:18pm View
   
I don't recommend starting at 1 at all.
I don't even start mine with 2, I always start at 3.
PIEBALDconsult 28-Jan-17 20:29pm View
   
Yeah, I loved Pascal back in the day, particularly Turbo, but once I became comfortable with C I stopped using it. I can't even read my Pascal programs from college anymore.
PIEBALDconsult 28-Jan-17 12:59pm View
   
If I wanted it I'd have it already. I used to use Turbo Pascal (and Turbo C), but I don't anymore.
PIEBALDconsult 28-Jan-17 10:04am View
   
I suppose you're correct.

How about the wrongest substring...
PIEBALDconsult 27-Jan-17 18:45pm View
   
Well, how are BCPL and B considered C-like? They came first! (And second.)
PIEBALDconsult 27-Jan-17 18:42pm View
   
VB is not allowed, real BASIC is.
I have VAX BASIC, HP BASIC, and Turbo BASIC...

I would just handle it in reporting, report only the final vote by each user. I don't like systems that don't allow users to correct their votes.
PIEBALDconsult 23-Jan-17 23:35pm View
   
What tools are you using? ADO.net? The ACE engine?
PIEBALDconsult 23-Jan-17 9:03am View
   
Right, no string _manipulation_ -- such as concatention and substring, I don't even want to use string compares. I have the one IndexOf per value to determines integerness, and I'd like to eliminate that.
You can _have_ strings, but not manipulate them.
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 21:56pm View
   
Names of parameters may not begin with a digit maybe?
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 20:12pm View
   
"Property" is the better answer. But it may still be a bad question
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 20:10pm View
   
No, I do want to use strings, you _have_ to use strings, but string _manipulation_ should be avoided.
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 20:00pm View
   
Well, you need only "pad" once you determine that the two values are identical up to the length of the shorter -- no need to "pad" prior to that.
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 13:12pm View
   
Just posted another comparer that shows another technique -- though I am still seeking a non-string-manipulating technique.
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 12:58pm View
   
Ah, now that would simplify things (for they who want to do use string manipulation); rather than "padding" the shorter value, simply compare the two candidate concatenations. :D That's much more straight-forward.

I just posted a new comparer that does that. It seems to work, but I want to avoid string manipulation. I have something whacky in mind...
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 12:49pm View
   
Aha... hmm...
Sooo... use the leading characters from the longer value to "pad" the shorter value maybe...
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 12:31pm View
   
Mine does not pad at all, I think you replied to the wrong poster.
_If_ padding is done (and that will kill performance), then when comparing 24 with 242, the 24 should pad to 244 -- the last digit of the shorter value should be repeated enough times to make the strings equal in length.
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 12:26pm View
   
"but then it's no longer a one liner. Where is the fun in that"
You can have either one-line or performance; you can't have both.
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 12:13pm View
   
Mine produces:
242 24 ==> 24 242
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 11:56am View
   
And it's homework, but that's beside the point, it does not need to go to moderation a dozen times.
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 11:49am View
   
2 and 222 are equal, but 20 and 200 are not, which is why I give the shorter value precedence whenever my first compare says they're equal.
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 11:31am View
   
Ah, OK.
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 11:27am View
   
Yes, and mine does
94 9 1 112 ==> 9 94 112 1
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 11:25am View
   
Mine produces:
26 254 250 248 246 245 241 235 232 227 224 2 222
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 11:22am View
   
I see a problem here:
discopr = int(origpr * .2) #answer to the property sells when reduced by 20%
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 11:00am View
   
Examples?
2 precedes 222
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 10:45am View
   
As per my second comparer. No padding or other string manipulation required. Just character compares and integer compares to break ties.
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 2:43am View
   
Not sure, but
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Pic", SqlDbType.Image).Value = ms.ToArray
looks wrong. Start there.
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 2:41am View
   
Ah, OK.
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 2:38am View
   
Padding should be avoided.
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 2:27am View
   
And how do you figure 51 elements?
PIEBALDconsult 22-Jan-17 2:12am View
   
New comparer produces:

Surely you can perform the tasks of index_of_min and remove_zeroes within reminders.
No need to enumerate the list three times per iteration.
As you calculate the reminders (remainders), keep track of the index of the min, and also swap out zeroes.

Why not
characterCount[character]++
?

I would add
if ( !characterCount.ContainsKey(character) ) characterCount [ character ] = 0

And I never use var, which is needless here.

It's easier if you program to the ADO.net Interfaces rather than specific classes.
I strongly advise against Access, but if you use it, use the ACE engine, not the JET engine.
Have you considered SQL Server CE?

Pffft. It's not like I asked about the First Unresolved Character Kernel.

I did; he's bitten off too much methinks.
But learning array-based linked lists might be a worthwhile precursor to learning pointers.

Removing an item from an array-based linked list is simple.

Shuffling is also required only in the real world; a computer is able to simply select a card at random.
PIEBALDconsult 20-Nov-16 13:52pm View
   
I wouldn't bother. A computer simulation is not bound by the same constraints as the physical reality it simulates.
In the real world most of us can't simply take X number of cards off a deck, but the computer can.

That sounds unusual; I would expect it in bin\debug. Is the file created when compiling? Or when running?

Better yet, use the using statement for connections, commands, and readers.
And possibly provide the CommandBehavior.CloseConnection to the Reader.

Move that to main, after the call to SpacesRemoval(Str)
PIEBALDconsult 7-Nov-16 0:08am View
   
But what is the goal?
PIEBALDconsult 7-Nov-16 0:05am View
   
In main, after the call to SpacesRemoval(Str) , display Str.
PIEBALDconsult 6-Nov-16 23:55pm View
   
Well, it looks like you're pretty much there, you just need to display the aletered string.
PIEBALDconsult 6-Nov-16 23:15pm View
   
Well, I must assume that this is a homework assignment, so maybe you should show us the assignment so at least we can see where you went astray.
(We won't actually do your homework of course, but you're pretty close.

Simply display the revised string after calling SpacesRemoval(Str)

0) Why do you use toupper?
1) You don't need to use strlen.
2) You don't need two loops; one will suffice.

public TestForm()
is not a constructor, so it requires a return type (probably void).

You're trying too hard. It's really very simple. And you should be able to do it without any ifs.

I'd use a HashSet.

And please do not attempt to have SQL Server (or any other application) automatically install with your application.
You do not know what the user's system/environment is like -- the user may have SQL Server available on a separate server and he may want to attach the database there.
Do be sure that the user can configure the system as needed -- e.g. do not hard-code "localhost" as the server.

Auto-incrementing is a cry for help; please use a better technique.

I don't know what tools you are using, but you'll want to learn how to instantiate and place UI objects on a Form dynamically -- using a Designer will actually be more difficult.
I did something similar a while back to create a Sudoku (or whatever) solver -- 27 buttons square with complex Event linkage. But I used C# and .net; not C and the Windows API.

I avoid subqueries whenever possible -- historically they have performed very poorly (though I expect things have improved in the last twenty years). These days I prefer Common Table Expressions and JOINs.

Looks OK, but your intent isn't clear.
