  1. In Topic: To 'var' or not to 'var'?

    Posted 9 Jan 2015

    I'm late to this party for sure.

    I generally use it like this:
    //Instantiating a new class: this
    var t = new Thread[3];
    //Looks better than this
    Thread[] t = new Thread[3];
    //I prefer to avoid it when the type is the result of a method call
    string json = new JavascriptSerializer().Serialize(exportList);
    //not this
     var json = new JavascriptSerializer().Serialize(exportList);
    //Also I like this
    var s = new int[] { 2, 3, 4 };
    //better than this
    int[] z = new[] { 2, 3, 4 };
    //just because it seems more intuitive.
    Other than that, I pretty much only use it when it's required. I guess I can say I use it when I'm instantiating a class and would have to use the class name twice over, like ClassName myObj = new ClassName().
  2. In Topic: How can i Add DataBase file in Package and Deployment

    There is a full stop included at the end of the link. Just click the link then remove the full stop from the addressbar.

    Edit: I've removed the dot so you can just use the link.

    Sorry about that. I usually put a space before the period. Thanks for fixing it Andrew.
  3. In Topic: Run time error 339:

    Posted 7 Jan 2015

    In the P&D wizard there is a place to add files. It's about the fourth screen along, and is titled "Package and Deployment Wizard - Included Files". Add your access file there.
  4. In Topic: Properties on right side of API, hit "hide", gone forever

    Posted 7 Jan 2015

    Well, I'll take you at your word and assume it's the Properties window. There are several ways to restore the window:
    • Go to the View menu and select Properties.
    • Press F4.
    • Right click on any control (for example the form) and select Properties.

    p. s. FYI, when you say "API" (Applications Programming Interface") you mean "IDE" Iintegrated Development Environment).
  5. In Topic: How can i Add DataBase file in Package and Deployment

    Posted 7 Jan 2015

    Yes, you can. There's a place in the wizard where you can add files (it's been 15 years since I've used it, so I don't remember exactly). You have to be careful using the P&D wizard; it's quite buggy. I wrote a little article on this back in 03 that you can see here: http://www.tek-tips.....cfm?qid=561173

    I found your post in the thread, that is now locked in the .net forum, to be quite humorous. Just wanted to say I appreciate your work and effort helping people out, because sometimes I don't have the patience myself to sit there spoon feeding people information. Thanks :)
