  1. In Topic: Random Select Dictionary values not Displaying

    Posted 10 Apr 2014

    If you put a breakpoint on the following line and hover the mouse over the .Question part what is displayed?
    // Display question for dictionary position selected
    this.lblQuestion.Text = this.questions[this.position].Question;

    Next, if you weren't using the out-of-date WinForms model, and instead using the modern WPF model for your program you could just specify your color preferences in a ControlTemplate style for the tabs and you'd be done in about an hour. No event handler for all this. No painting overrides. None of that 1990's stuff.

    Agreed. WPF is the way to go these days. It is being widely adopted and does away with a lot of the nonsense on WinForms. It does bring it's own set of quirks, and definitely has a steeper learning curve, but it rewards good design.

    You could have the user enter a path if you have are doing a console application. Or if you are using WinForms try the OpenFileDialog. When using a path be sure to note that your path has included the '@' which makes the string a verbatim string literal, which basically ignores escape characters such as "\n", "\t" etc is very useful when specifying paths, but the user will enter it without the '@' which will mean you need to use "\\" for every "\" to avoid them being seen as escape characters.

    What i want is to have all the columns in text file in order, how would i do that? For example like this:
    aaa:aa, bbb:baaa, ccc:1
    aaa:aass, bbb:s, ccc:12
    aaa:aa, bbb:baaa, ccc:1

    How do you want to order them? Alphabetically or the order they were entered?

    The data will only line up if you are using a monospaced typeface like, something like Courier New.

    aaa:aa, bbb:baaa, ccc:1
    aaa:aass, bbb:s, ccc:12
    aaa:aa, bbb:baaa, ccc:1
  5. In Topic: user writing a method during runtime

    And although it isn't exactly what you are after you could always use scripting. The Microsoft.Scripting and Microsoft.Dynamic dll's have a fair bit of scope for this. In one of the app's I work on all day at work we have a scripting section where users can write script files (or in a prompt) in IronPython and call them through our app.

    The reason I posted my "useless" comment is to pull more information from the OP about the topic. I didn't realize how old the thread was. I simply started answering a few of the newest questions in the forum. I took the OP's code, and played with it: trying to envision what on earth they were trying to accomplish and couldn't. I figured if they phrased their question differ...
