Posts I've Made

  1. In Topic: Option selection box to change what appears in main window screen

    Posted 30 Sep 2014

    That's because with the second chunk of code, mainWindow is a local variable that is scoped only for that method. The first chunk of code has mainWindow that is scoped for the class.
  2. In Topic: Saving and using random number

    Posted 29 Sep 2014

    So each time you get a number, store it as a application setting. Each time you need to new number call your random number generator and then compare with the the application setting. If the same, call the random number generator again. If not the same, store the new number.

    I still fail to see how you can call that "random" if you know that the next number can never be the same as the previous number. As in my previous example. If you flip a coin and get a head, then you know that the next one will not be a tail. So if that means that if the last Superbowl coin flip was tails, then that means for this coming Superbowl the coin flip will be heads. Guess what the visiting team will be calling when February rolls around. :)
  3. In Topic: Assignment: Trouble with array and adding

    Posted 29 Sep 2014

    C# is not like C++ where you do:
    Virgin virgins = new Virgin[76];

    and you get 76 Virgins that you can do anything with.

    In C#, you have to allocate each of the items in the array as well (if the items are not value types). So in C# you have to do:
    Virgin virgins = new Virgin[76];
    for(int i = 0; i < virgins.Length; i++)
        virgins[i] = new Virgin();

    before you get to play with the 76 Virgins.
  4. In Topic: Renaming to make code shorter?

    Posted 28 Sep 2014

    Note that the .NET naming convention highly recommends that abbreviations not be used.
  5. In Topic: Listbox file populate filtered with regex

    Posted 28 Sep 2014

    That means that you set up your regular expression incorrectly and/oryou are looking at the matches incorrectly.
