Dividing A Bitmap Into Sections?

Nov 19, 2009

How easy it is to "split" a bitmap into separate parts?Here is a bitmap that was generated by a program - the red pixels that you see are purely red, there are no other colours.I want to know if the left side is "redder" than the right side. (Actually I want to be more precise than that (but I can figure that out on my own))So, I think that "splitting" the bitmap up into sections like this: would be the best way to do it then I can count the red pixels in each section.Here is the part of the code snippet that produced the bitmap you see above:I think I might be able to modify this easily to count pixels, if I know how to split the bitmap into section thingies.

Dim are_identical As Boolean = True
Dim eq_color As Color = Color.White
Dim ne_color As Color = Color.Red
For x As Integer = 0 To wid - 1

Dividing Currency By An X Amount Of Months?

Feb 16, 2012

im trying to learn how to made stuff with currency.For example:I divide 10.000$ by 12 Months, rounding with 2 decimals i have 833,33 $.If i multiply 833,33 $ * 12 i got 9999,96 $, so there is 0.04 of possible loss.
Rounding the 9999.96 with 2 decimals of presition i got 10.000 $ but that's what i don't want since 0.04 is a loss.Im using SQL Compact 4.0 as database, the price_month table is decimal(18,2)

Here is my code:

Dim price as Decimal = 10000
Dim pricemonth as Decimal = Math.round((price/12),2) ' 833.33
Console.Writeline(pricemonth*12) ' 9999.96
Console.Writeline(Math.round((pricemonth*12),2)) ' 10000

Dividing Work Into Multiple Threads?

Aug 10, 2011

I've read a lot of different questions on SO about multithreaded applications and how to split work up between them, but none really seem to fit what I need for this. Here's how my program currently basically works:

Module Module1
'string X declared out here
Sub Main()


This is only a rough outline of what actually happens in my code by the way.

My problem being that if multiple threads start running Main2(), they're dealing with the same X value as in the other threads. The loop inside of main2 executes multiple times per millisecond, so I can't just stagger the loops. There is often duplication of work done.

How can I properly divide up the work so that the two threads running simultaneously never have the same work to run?

Multipying Works But Dividing Doesn't?

Jan 11, 2011

I'm stuck on a simple problem maybe you can help!

Why does this work

vb Private Function calcArea() As Decimal     
Dim height As Decimal
Dim width As Decimal
' assigns user input from the two text boxes to the two variables
Decimal.TryParse(heightTextBox.Text, height)
Decimal.TryParse(widthTextBox.Text, width)


All I did is change the multiply symbol to a divide symbol and now when I try to divide the two Decimal variables Visual Studio says, "Option strict on disallows conversions from 'Decimal' to 'Long'." Not sure where this conversion is happening.I know I'm missing something simple (once again) so if anyone has any advice please let me know.

VS 2010 - Need Runtime Error When Dividing By Zero In Calculations

May 12, 2011

I'm trying to make a program that uses Ohms circle to calculate varying data regarding electricity, I think that if you look at my code you'll get a good idea. The problem that I'm having is that I'm using On Error Resume Next so the program will automatically find the valid calculation to calculate the value for the variable, but what's happening is that when it divides by zero (the default value for variables with no value) it gets Infinity, which it has decided IS a value, but I don't want it to be, I need a runtime error so it will bypass that calculation and go on to the next one.

'Skip erroneous statements and continue on to next line of valid code
On Error Resume Next
'v = voltage

C# - Adding Two .NET SqlDecimals Increases Precision?

Jun 23, 2011

in .NET, when I add two SqlDecimals, like so:


then s3 has precision 2, whereas both s1 and s2 have precision 1. This seems odd, especially as the documentation states that the return value of the addition operator is "A new SqlDecimal structure whose Value property contains the sum." I.e. according to the documentation, addition should not change the precision.

C# - Rounding To The Best Unit Without Losing Precision

Jan 26, 2010

I receive a decimal number with a maximum of 4 digits after the "." and I know this number is in milligram.

I have to find the best matching unit (milligram, gram, kilogram) for the number.

for an example if I receive


116000000.0000 milligram, it's going to return 116.0000 kilogram
66990000.0000 milligram, it's going to return 66.9900 kilogram
49000010.0000 milligram, it's going to return 49000.0100 g

Code For Dividing A Stopwatch Result By 60 Program 2008?

Feb 22, 2010

I have a stopwatch in my program. I start the stopwatch with the start button I created. When I stop it it gives the results of the time in a label that I have named labelTime. I have a Calculate button I have created. I also have a label I have named calcResult. I want to click the Calculate button and divide the stopwatch result (labelTime) by 60. I want the results of this calculation to be displayed in the label calcResult. I keep getting errors saying labelTime is a string value. I believe I will need my calcResult to be a Decimal.

VS 2008 Dividing Numbers - Result To Be Displayed On A Eight Decimal Number

Jul 30, 2009

I'm trying to do this division and the result to be displayed on a eight decimal number.

Dim r1 As Integer
Dim r2 As Double
r1 = Val(TextBox16.Text)
r2 = r1 / 60
TextBox18.Text = FormatNumber(r2, 8)

The value or R1 on this case is 273.4 but it varies according with the result obtained so I can not allocate a constant number to r1. The problem is the result that I am getting is 4,55000000 instead of 4.5566666

LINQ Query With Sum And Group By Is Adding Decimal Precision

Aug 24, 2009

I am trying to do a simple summary of table data using a LINQ query.a regular SQL Query looks like:[code]This query works fine and returns the correct results.[code]This LINQ query returns the incorrect results some of the time.  Off by .01 in most cases.The "value" column is of type Numeric (12,2) in the database.Now when I show the values from the Sum in a msgbox I get extra precision and thus incorrect results as my end result because of rounding.For example I get 835.18 + 54.62 = 889.80960 from the above LINQ query.I am running Visual Studio 2008 9.0.30729.1 SP on Vista 64Bit with .NET 3.5 SP1.

Reading Double Precision Values From Binary File?

Feb 19, 2010

I am attempting to read a series of double prcision float values (x,y,z coordinates) from a binary file using the binary reader. Everything works fine except that when I read the number back it is different then the number that was written there (original file is generated by mining application).

written number : 78897.6476586
file contents hex : 40 F3 43 1A 5C CF 43 A4 this converts back to the same number as written using a IEE 754 conversion program. VB returned value : -5.45100266729248E-134 using .readDouble()

I have tried to step thru the file in one byte steps to make sure that I have the proper start position but that did not help any.

RoundUp Function - Which Will Round A Number UP To The Specified Decimal Precision

Apr 29, 2009

I need a function which will Round a number UP to the specified decimal precision, exactly the same as how Excel's RoundUp function works:

Roundup(dblVal, intDecPlaces)

So I need the following:

Roundup(0.896523, 4)
would return

However, everything i've tried/found simply rounds to the nearest whole integer, or returns a normal rounded value, hence the above would return

I've tried the following:

Math.Round(dblval, intPrecision, midpointrounding.awayfromzero)
' and
Math.Round(dblval, intPrecision, midpointrounding.toeven)

And even custom functions, such as:

Public Function RoundUp(ByVal varValue As Object, _
ByVal iNum As Integer) As Double

'ignore the data types here, I was playing to see 'if changing any of the data types would swing 'the results (knowing full well they wouldnt make 'a difference, thats how fed up with this I am!)

Dim lNum As Long, xVal As Double, xVar As Object

xVar = Fix(varValue)


I've even looked at converting this to a string, looking at the Xth decimal place, and incrementing it up by 1, then converting it back to a double, while this works (sort of) it seems to be a very roughshod way of doing it, and I'd rather do it mathematically than with lots of data conversion.

Store Oracle TimeStamp Precision 6 In SQL Server DateTime?

Writing An Array Of Single-precision Floats In One Operation

Sep 19, 2009

I am making the belated transition from VB6 to VB.NET (2008). I would appreciate some guidance on writing arrays to a file. I need to save and load large arrays of 4-byte floats (24 x 90,000 values is not uncommon). I can load or save them using nested for-next loops, but that's quite slow. I'd like to find a single operation that can read or write the binary data.In VB6 I could accomplish this (writing case shown) with Put #1 , , MyArray()I can read and write single variables from binary files without problems in .net. For example, [code]I have looked and looked, and Googled endlessly, but cannot find out how to accomplish a single-line numeric, floating-point array read or write in VB.NET.
