Expression Parsing Using FLEE And Custom Expression Context

Jun 12, 2012

I am using Flee to build a formula builder. It works great but the only problem I'm facing is that Flee doesn't understand Generic Methods I guess. I have a function called IIf declared in the expression context I'm using. [code]How can I work around this. I mean cannot , in sense, write all possible overloads of the function of all .net primitive types. What approach should I take.

Regular Expression - Valid Filename Check?

Jun 18, 2009

See subject of positing for question.
1) I recall seeing a really cool option in VB.NET using LINQ to match using "LIKE%'
2) I know regular expressions will work and I suspect that will result in the shortest code and probably won't be too hard to read for such a simple test.

Here's what I did.
Private Shared Function FileNameIsOk(ByVal fileName As String) As Boolean
For Position As Integer = 0 To fileName.Length - 1
Dim Character As String = fileName.Substring(Position, 1).ToUpper
Dim AsciiCharacter As Integer = Asc(Character)

VS 2010 Unable To Evaluate Expression/variables?

Oct 24, 2011

I have one test class which having few variables declared in the header of the class where it will be accessed for all the subroutines and functions in the class. Here's the sample of my declaration:

Private m_dblMaxPwrLimit As Double
Private m_dblMaxPower As Double
Private m_intHalfPwrIndex As Short
Private m_intMaxPwrIndex As Short

After that, I have one Private Function which need to access some of the variables declare in above. Part of my function is show as below:

Private Function GetPmaxIndex(ByVal Serial As Short) As Boolean
Dim i As Short
Dim Total As Short


The problem is when I step into the line of m_dblMaxPower and m_intMaxPwrIndex, I can't see the value of these variables which is suppose I can see it as in VB6. Additionally, when I put Add Watch for these variables, it showed 'unable to evaluate expression'. I guess it is not being used and I think something is wrong with my declaration but I do not how should I declare it corretly because as for VB6, we can declare all the variables in the header of the class and we can use it for all the subroutine/function within the class.

Add Built-in Constants To Program?

Jul 30, 2010

It would be good if visual basic had standard math constants like pi, the Euler number, and others built-in so one doesn't have to define them each time and have the possibility of making typos. Even some of the physical constants in MKS unit could be included like the Boltzmann's Constant, speed of light, permittivity and such. Each could be a special simple like kb for the Boltzmann's constant. Or it could be a properties like phyconst.c for the speed of light, phyconst.kb for the Boltzmann's, for the steffan-Boltzmann's constant, pmathconst.e for e=2.71.

Make Array Of Constants?

Feb 23, 2010

I've got a situation where I need a table of constants in my app. It's actually a table of 43 formatting options where the description will appear in a drop down and the detailed settings will be used by the codeIt appears that VB can't do arrays of constants. So I've fiddled around with a Constructor in a class that creates a new array then loads up each element with hard-coded .Add statements. It doesn't seem elegant though.So I then decided to try an XML file, that I load in the Constructor and assign the contents to an array. This is what I've decided is the best, most elegant, option - but I'm throwing this question in to see what you people might recommend ! The data is mostly strings

Where Are Excel VBA Constants Defined For .Net

So I am creating macros in Excel that format the spreadsheet, and then using the code it generates in my application. The problem is that the constants used in VBA are not being recognized in VB.Net  (They are recognized in VB6).  I have the following imports:

Imports Microsoft.Office.Interop
Imports Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel

Is there something else I should be importing? For example, in this line, xlNone and xlDiagonalDown are flagged as not declared.

Not Picking Up Global Constants Via Intellisense?

How can we change this so Visual Studio's Intellisense picks up our constants? For example, when typing:
