    Thread moved from C# to VB.NET. Do you not know what language you are coding in?

    Its a REALLY bad idea to store your passwords as plain text like that. HUGE security problem.

    Using your GUI like your own private variables (txtUsername.text for example) is really practice. And you have that all over your code. You really want to separate your GUI from your logic so your logic could be re-used. At some point you're going to want to leave 1998 behind and get out of using WinForms: Wouldn't it be nice if you could pick up your logic code and use it in a modern WPF application with virtually no change? You can't do that when you have it so tightly bound to the GUI like this.

    SO what is your question? You're not asking us anything. The implication is "Would you please debug my code for me?"

    This looks like a very straight-forward debugging situation.


    tlhIn`toq's FAQ list

    Learning to debug one's own code is an essential skill. Sadly, one that apparently few college courses teach. Silly if you ask me.
    Placing breakpoints and walking through the code line by line allows you to actually WATCH it execute, check the condition of each of variable's run-time value, and watch the logic unfold right before your eyes.
    Visualizing what your code does will let you see why it behaves the way it does.
    It would be well worth your time to do the tutorials on FAQ 2. A couple hours learning this skill will save you hundreds of hours of confusion in one project alone.

    In addition to FAQ 2 in the list below, also check my signature block for a link on how to look at your variables' values at run-time.

  2. In Topic: Book Suggestion on pipelining and related.

    Posted 29 Jul 2015

    Well, C++ has been around for decades. I'd bet there are without exaggeration 10,000 books on the topic.

    Wow, even at 10k I was guessing low.

    We can't really narrow down what speaks to you and what doesn't using our telepathic powers. There are dozens of book review sites. Microsoft Virtual Academy gives away ebooks for free.

    I'd repeat my advice about going to a book store where you can look through actual books.

    Looking at your topic history I would describe your threads as "all over the place". After 5 years here I would expect to see a more directed approach and progress. Maybe you'd benefit from a more structured learning situation than trying to teach yourself, such as a local community college. A lot of people do better on their own; a lot of people do best with a teacher keeping them on course. Maybe after a year of guided instruction you'd be able to branch off on your own and be able to stay focused in one area at a time.

    Just my two cents worth.

    of different level of caches, pipelining, memory access, alignment and other related topics.
    So "coding" in other words.

    We have a pinned topic at the head of the C# forum, for books and resources in that language. You'd have to check the appropriate language area that matches the language you plan to develop in.

    But you've been on the site for 5 years now, you must know those threads exist.

    it is very hard for me to grasp

    Since we don't necessarily understand what is difficult for you or not, you might consider a trip to a physical bookstore and look through the books. Find authors that describe things in a way that clicks with you then you can look up other books by the same author. Make a day of going to Barnes & Nobles for example. If you don't like their prices you can use one of the many smart phone applications that let you snap a photo of the cover and return a host of prices from various nearby brick & mortar stores as well as on-line stores.

    andrew343: If you haven't grasped it by now let me just tell you directly - Stop creating new threads every day for this same thing. They keep getting closed or merged and will continue to be closed and merged to this.

    People are giving you good advice right here. So what's the problem?
    Nobody here is going to do your work for you or write code for you to copy/paste into your project/homework.

    If you don't understand the advice then say that, IN THIS THREAD, asking for clarification.

    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.
