.net - Visual Basic Express 2008 Randomization?

Apr 26, 2010

I have been given a task to:Develop a program where a child will be presented with picture of a fruit (one of five possible fruit) on the screen at the click of a start button. The child will then try to recognise the fruit and write its name in a specified place on the screen. On the click of a check button the name of the fruit written by the child will be checked by your program and if correct will reward the child with a suitable message. If the name presented by the child is not correct, a suitable message should be presented on a red background with the correct name of the fruit included in the message.

so far I have managed to create a form with 5 different fruit pictures and a text box below them. a button at the bottom of the form then checks the results and presents a message box to tell them if they have passed or failed.

Ms Access 2003 Mdb Into Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition

May 7, 2009

My intention is to load my data from access database through datagridview but it keeps telling me the same error. This is the exact error message I've gotten.. it threw an oledb Exception stating: Could not open table 'MSysAccounts' in the workgroup information file. I've been browsing and viewing different resources but I still do not find a solution to view my data in datagridview. Few things I've tried:

1. I originally uses Ms Access 2007 to load, but it does not seem to work well, hence i converted it into Ms Access 2003 format. Same error displayed.

2. Working around with the workgroup in Access 2003, creating new workgroup which creates System.mdw file and I replaced it in:

Assigning Value From Save File In Visual Basic 2010?

Oct 11, 2011

My project is using Visual Basic 2010. I have a pure text save file with the following format:


I'm trying to load the data by using the first column as the object name and the second as the value. I've had some success with the following (skipping some basic IO lines):

prop = FileReader.ReadLine().Split("|")
tempvar = prop(0)

If TypeName(Me.Controls(tempvar)) = "NumericUpDown" Then
Me.Controls(tempvar).Value = prop(1)

I have a problems with this because I have some objects in panels or group boxes and Me doesn't reach into them.

Is there a way to just strictly reference an object with a variable? I'd love to assign the first column into prop(0) and just say

if TypeName(object(prop(0))) = "NumericUpDown" then
object(prop(0)).Value = prop(1)

How To Reference Resources To Save In Settings - Visual Basic 2008 .net

May 24, 2012

I'm trying to save a setting that keeps what background image I'm currently using.If it's an external file, there is no problem, i can just get the .location and set it in a String setting to store it.

But, if I want to store an image resource as a setting, how do i do it?I know i can store rawdata, like bitmap information, but then i can't set that type of data to the my.background.

I don't know if the question should be: "how do i reference resources", but the my.resources.resource.methodsList doesnt contain anything that seems to be of use.
