In this scenario I need to create orders into an ERP system via a proprietary driver.
That means that I need to declare a new "order" object, and fill in all its properties. Some header data (customer name, and address, and such), and an unknown number of rows (product number, quantity, price, etc.). In addition I need to translate that same information into an email message.
So if I combine both header and row data into a single query, I would have to populate the header data of the order object over and over, for each row, or build in some kind of is-it-already-populated method. Somehow that does not seem very efficient (or elegant) either (I may very well be wrong of course).
For clarity, the header table will generally only contain between 1 and 10 records, the rows table however can contain anywhere between 1 and 150 records per header record. Eliminating the nested loop is therefore my main concern here.
My advice is free, and you may get what you paid for.
Several weeks ago you folks helped me with a problem and I have another problem I hope you can help with.
I created, with your help, a small program that spun three will like a slot machine and randomly placed 2 values and a sign, in picture boxes to create a very basic math problem to be solved. I did this for my 6 year old granddaughter and she LOVES IT!.
In fact she took the program to school and the teacher loved it as well. After a little work I jazzed up the program with some flashy graphics and sound. She wants to add the program to her teaching library. Before I give her a copy I wanted to add some animation to the reels by adding short AVI files. Creating the files was no problem, getting them to play was.
Can anyone steer me to some actually complete code that will play a AVI file in a picture box, that IS DOCUMENTED with remark statements so I can see what they are doing in the code.
On the same note is there a format the AVI file must be in to play? I learned that to play a wave file using the Autoplaymode function the wave file had to be in PCM format. Is there some such requirement for AVI files?
No you can't; all you can make in a higher-level language is a virtual OS, one that runs on top of a real one. For a real OS, one needs pre-emptive scheduling which requires access to all the CPU registers, so one can swap one process/task/thread for another one, saving/restoring the state in some data structures. C#, Java, VB and other HLL's don't provide access to (all relevant) CPU registers.
I've constructed a number of OSes using C; it takes one or two pages of assembly code at least to implement proper process/task/thread switching. Everything else could be implemented in the HLL, although optimal interrupt handling may beg for some assembly code too.
One could argue that in-line assembly could be used (probably not in VB), but I would not really consider that as the compiler will insist on adding some code I don't want, and performance should not be wasted in task switching or interrupt servicing.
I'm googled all day long and can't seem to find a good example of this. I'm trying to write a VB.NET Windows Form Application to submit a XML request to a web service via a POST to a URL. And get the response. I've found plenty for VB6 but these don't work for Visual Studio. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks
Hello all, i have been making a few Visual Basic Applications as a bit of a hobby. Is there anyway to make an application read some files that contain code and have a program act accordingly. in other words have a add-on/plug-in system for a program.
