  1. In Topic: Parallel HttpClient requests

    Posted 27 Oct 2015

    Hi All,

    I dont really mean that tasks are inefficent, its just that im not seeing much improvement with the speed in which the requests are being made.

    For instance, each request i make is now using a task in which i wait on all tasks before the function completes, i thought i would see alot better performance which at this point it not happening.

    I knew i would have to implement some sort of queuing system to hand 40 tasks at a time. This wont be an issue however im getting an object reference error at random points from the tasks which doent occur when the code is run movie by movie.

    This led me to believe that i may not be using tasks in the correct way thus im seeking some guildance.

    I will work on the code tonight and post back with any issues im occuring.

    Oh and yes im reinventing the wheel here (sort of) which this application. Im very aware of the other applications offering content management with a movie and TV collection.

    Im making this application because its fun and i can add anything i want to it, for instance ive added local cinema showtimes by scrapping Google (yes i know it not allowed by google), and since my TVs in the house are all on the home network ive added the PlayTo code to allow me to stream to the TV (Fun stuff)

    Thank you for your guildance at this point and i hope we can work through any futher issues.
  2. In Topic: Runtime Controls - Transparent Backgrounds

    Posted 25 May 2015

    damn you snoopy, I needed u 12months ago.

  3. In Topic: Beginner database question

    Posted 25 May 2015

    Json maybe

    Newtonsoft has some great JsonConvert methods for creating files based on objects

    db would be the best option if you have to do lots of filtering for your results. Have a look at SQLite :)
  4. In Topic: why this foreach always gives the same result?

    Posted 25 May 2015

    the error defines the issue,

    you have a primary key defined and your inserting a new object were the key has the same value.

    You should use AutoIncrement for primary keys, when inserting you don't need to specify a key.

    display you Model which defines the table
  5. In Topic: Runtime Controls - Transparent Backgrounds

    Posted 22 May 2015

    I did with my own windows form project but I didn't need full transparency.

    I made a custom semi transparent panel then sat controls on top and the background could come though. I had tried the overlay option but was never able to get exactly want I wanted.

    My advice would be the same as many other gave me, drop windows forms and move to wpf.

    if this is not an option then , create a small panel, add your label to it then use the picturebox.decoration method to add the panel.

    set the panels width property to be the same as the image width

    hope this helps
