  1. In Topic: problem creating XML file using c#

    Posted 21 Aug 2014

    Way too much micromanagment in your code.
    If this is going to be the XML representation of a "product", then just serialize your Product class instance.

  2. In Topic: IndexOutOfRange Exception

    Posted 21 Aug 2014

    Walk it through on paper for each iteration.
    Or look at the run-time values of your variables on each iteration.
    You have an array of 6 items. That's elements 0-5
    If you try to fetch element 6 thats out of range because your range is 0-5

    Typical simple loops like this are through i - 1 not plus one, to adjust for arrays being zero-indexed.

  3. In Topic: Accessing GUI properties from an application object

    Posted 20 Aug 2014

    If you would do this in modern WPF instead of 1980's WinForms this wouldn't be a problem.

    Instead of directly dealing with the ListView you would only add to the collection. The collection would be 'binded' to the GUI control. All updates take place automatically behind the scenes: you don't deal with it at all.
  4. In Topic: Creating a list of lists in c# on xamarin

    Posted 20 Aug 2014

    The answer to your question is very simple and you said it yourself:

    You don't know where to start.

    The answer is: You don't know enough yet to start.

    You need to learn the language and the basics first.

    There is no simple answer to these questions you are asking. We can't tell you 10 sentences that will let you continue because you have too little basis to make this program.

    Let me make another analogy.

    Right now you are a student surgeon with no training, but you have a patient on the table cut open while you ask "What is the next step to taking out the appendix?" You simple lack the foundation skills and understanding to do the surgery, regardless what anyone tells you to do.

    Same with programming. You lack so much basic understanding, and so much basic willingness to do some experimenting to get an understanding that nobody here or elsewhere can answer your questions for you.

    I've said it every way I can. I'm going to unsubscribe from the thread. If someone else out of the 500,000 members of this site think I'm wrong or being too harsh on the lad, then feel free to jump in. Prove me wrong. Answer all the OP's questions that he says I'm not answer only because I'm prejudiced.
  5. In Topic: Creating a list of lists in c# on xamarin

    Posted 20 Aug 2014


    My plan is to make a beta version that does what i want and then i will modify i to make it right. I haven't done any of the things you say because i dont know what i need, what i will need. i dont even know how to do it.

    This is exactly what I am talking about. Never time to plan it out. Never time to learn the small bits first, then put them all together to make an application.

    You want to make a down and dirty application, then fix it up.

    "never time to do it right, always time to do it over."

    So you're going to just whack something out with everything in English, then spend as much time making the program to go back and retro fit localization. What a waste of time! Don't you think it would be more efficient to LEARN how to do localization on a small scale test application first... Then incorporate good design in your real application: Even if you only include language files for English at first, then add other language files later. That way all the work is done right the first time.

    Same with all your other questions. You want US to tell you if your lists are going to be too big. How about making a test application with all those lists fully populated and CHECKING to see how much memory it takes? You can do this preliminary work yourself instead of asking others to do the grunt work for you.

    Here's my advice: Again, but rephrased.

    You don't know enough to build this. You said yourself you don't know and don't know where to start. So you REALLY don't know enough to design this. Just pick up a book and learn the language. Work the tutorials and assignments in the book. Learn to crawl before you try to drive a car.

    Am I just blind, or is there no link on a person's profile page to their blog? That's silly.

    Yep. They are coding on a "Whole 'nother level" above my last employer. Makes me feel like like I'm in the special slow learners group. But that's a nice side effect of new environments: They make you stretch past your comfort zone and learn new techniques.

    01aug13: I've changed employers and no longer working at home. So I won't be answering posts in real-time through out the work day. Don't take this as disinterest in the site. Its just I can't do that from a new office as a new employee. So its nights and weekends for me.

    I need to run through them and clean them up, stitch panoramas together etc. Shot about 700 frames. I'll keep maybe 50 at most. 10% or little less is about average.

    Back from vacation. I was away for nearly a month (if anyone noticed). But Alaska was beautiful.

    Thanks! I see the voting is closed.
    I had to laugh when I saw I was even on the "nicest member" list - Everyone knows I'm the brutally honest old man LOL.
