  1. In Topic: Graphics Confusion

    Posted 1 Sep 2015

    I suspect that the DX9 fixation is based on the belief (or is it fact?) that not a lot of people have moved off Windows XP, so therefore to cater to those people, DX9 should be the minimum platform.

    My quick search (without validation) points me to this:
    Attached File  Capture.PNG (23.76K)
    Number of downloads: 0
  2. In Topic: How do i send a double value in bcd format (byte[3]) data to serial po

  3. In Topic: I need datastructure inspiration

    Posted 1 Sep 2015

    Modern DBs are almost infinitely configurable to the point that you can tell it to keep everything in memory if you configure it. A good (but not robust) approach would be to let the database asynchronously write to disk.

    Personally, I think that just throwing a good SSD at the problem cover you until the point when you need a little more throughput. At that point you replace the single SSD with a RAID setup. Then when that isn't enough then you put a huge RAM disk in front and have it asynchronously write to the RAID array.

    The OP is not looking for a language. She/he is looking for a data structure.
  5. In Topic: Dynamic Checkbox Not Creating

    There is no need to quote the post above yours. Just use the big Reply button, or the Fast Reply area at the bottom of the page.

    You'll find that the WPF DataGrid is infinitely more flexible than the WinForms DataGridView. I suggest using the ListView first, though.

    See this StackOverflow answer.
