It's just how you escape Unicode characters in a string. To see what the Unicode characters are, you can use the Character Map in the Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools program group, or go to http://www.unicode.com[^].

See Process.MaxWorkingSet. This gets or sets the maximum amount of memory allowed in memory for the given Process.

Not yet, at least in the .NET base class library. In .NET 2.0 they have introduced several new control classes, including a GridView[^] which supports virtual lists, which is to what you're referring.
There's nothing from stopping you now (there was a good article a LONG time ago about how to do this even in DHTML), but the burden is on you unless you want to buy a commercial solution like a couple from ComponentOne[^].
Is there a way to render html without using the SHDocVw control? The reason that I don't want to use that control is because I don't want the overhead of the control having internet access. I also want the control to be able to render dynamic html while the SHDocVw control seems to only render static web pages. I would really appreciate some advice or even just a point in the right direction. Thanks
I'm writing a tool that does some dianostics on processes. I can't seem to figure out how to locate the name of the user running a process or the id of the parent process. Can someone please point me in the correct direction. Thanks
One way ( without digging into the debugging APIs ) is to P/Invoke the native functions in the following order: OpenProcessToken, GetTokenInformation, then LookupAccountName. You pass Process.Handle to OpenProcessToken to get an access token. You then get a TOKEN_USER struct by calling GetTokenInformation. Finally, use the SID parameter from TOKEN_USER and call LookupAccountName. This also seems to be partly what taskmgr.exe and tasklist.exe (in Windows XP) are doing. There is actually only tree functions you have to P/Invoke and only a couple structs you have to redefine.
I'm sorry that I couldn't find a way to get the parent process ID. In fact, I couldn't find anything common that does on Windows, not to say it isn't possible.
To be exact, functions are stand-alone procedures while methods are procedures that belong to an entity (class, struct, etc.). It's not just a .NET term but a procedural vs. object-oriented naming convention.
I've done some searching but can't seem to find what I'm looking for. I have a solution with roughly 30 projects (all C#) in it. Fairly often, perhaps every 5th or 10th debug build, I get errors in 1 to 3 of the projects that say that the /debug/obj/<projectname>.pdb file is in use and the build couldn't complete. I cannot delete the file without shutting down VS, but once I do and restart, the projects build fine. In using VS.NET 2003 on W2K. Is there something causing this in what I'm doing? Is it an IDE bug? How can I fix it or efficiently circumvent it? I realize that this may not neatly fit into the C# newsgroup topic, but it seemed the best match. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
More info. This happens with code behind a Windows Form. When this problem arises, close all of the Windows Forms documents in the IDE and the file is released by whatever is holding it. Seems like a bug...
Thanks for the reply, but I don't have FXCop and the above seems to negate 'a'. I'm puzzled.
