C:UsersendroitDocumentsVisual Studio 2008ProjectsDataTypeDataTypeobjDebugDataType.pdb
Well, is there any solution or way not to include that line when debug. I know that .pdb is important in debugging, but when the app published still there's that line. Can we disable it or there's no other way.
I have a notepad I am making. I need to resolve to more then 1 Save and Open Filter. I have the code: Try Dim dlg As SaveFileDialog = New SaveFileDialog dlg.Title = "Save" dlg.Filter = "Text Document (*.txt)|*.txt" If dlg.ShowDialog = System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then RichTextBox1.SaveFile(dlg.FileName, RichTextBoxStreamType.RichText) [Code] .....
I just published this simple console application that is supposed to show a textbox with the value of a setting called "userID" with value 1001. This works like a charm. Now what I need is to change this value outside the editor, from notepad etc. When I open the application a lot in there is non-sence etc. but with a quick (ctrl + F) I found the value 1001, and changed this to some other integer.
I ran the application again, and it failed, didn't even give any userful error-message. At a point I tried just opening a newly published non-corrupted version of the application, didn't change anything, then saved from notepad, and it were also corrupted. It seems like notepad can't open some characters or something. Do I need to publish the application in some specific text-unicode language or something? I use vb.net for this
Suppose I have this Dim proc As Process proc = Process.Start("Notepad.exe", "C: est.txt") Now, if I want to use Notepad.exe to open another text file (ie. C:2ndTextFile.txt) without closing it, how am I going to do it?
I have searched, but failed to find a suitable answer to this. My small app saves a text file using a savefiledialog and stream writer. Then if successful, displays a messagebox confirming sucess and asks if the user wants to open the text file now. and this is the problem... How do I determine if the user has changed the filename and or path in the savefiledialog when saving? I'd prefer not to hard code a path and file name if possible.... but that seems like the only option? and therefore I can't show the file straight after saving reliably??
I tried using this code I got from MSDN, but it doesn't do anything. What I am trying to do is have the user click the "Purchase" button in my app that will open a web browser to the web page on our site where they can purchase the application after their demo period has expired. If this is not the correct code?
Code: ' open internet browser to www.Cootsware.comspeedmaster.html Private Declare Function ShellExecute _ Lib "shell32.dll" _
I'm deploying a VB.Net app (VS 2010 Pro) that requiers the user click a command button to open IE to a financial WEB site and download informaion from the site. The app works fine in every detail when installed on the development computer. But, on the target computer when the command button is clicked an unhandled exception occurs which says: System.IO. FileNotFoundException:File Not found.My code behind the button is Shell("C:Program Files (x86)Internet Exploreriexplore.exe www,fidelity.com",AppWinStyle.NormalFocus)
This works fine on the development computer. Do I need a way to code this as a relative path? If so,can you tell me how this is done?Throughout the app I have written relative paths to needed files using paths like (Open(Environment. GEtFolderPath (Environment. SpecialFoldder.Desktop) + "File Name). They all work fine when deployed.
Years ago when coding with VB6 and earlier, I used a file open command to create, read, and write a file that made it easy to store useful information.I believe it was binary and you wrote/read the data to a specific line in the file. When you opened the file with something like notepad, it just showed random ascii chars. When I needed a line of data, I could specify what line to load it from.
im having a slight problem with my open file dialogue box, i need to be able to open the dialgue box, and click the file and open in my pdf reader, or at least load it to my other form ive created. what ive go so far:
