Dialog Box - How To Copy Files With Multithreading

Jul 11, 2009

I've been looking at multithreading because I have been trying to make my own dialog box and it seems it might be the only solution. When I used dialog.show, there was no way to cancel the copying operation without the program finishing the current file it was copying (which I found to be annoying), and if I used dialog.showdialog, the program wouldn't continue executing code until I closed the dialog box. So I defined the thread and gave it a sub procedure to execute. But it turns out I can't directly access the main form's controls now. I read all about delegates and invoking and haven't come up with an answer to simply GET a value.

Here's the code in question:
Private Sub TransferFiles()
For FileCount As Integer = 0 To Me.ListBox1.Items.Count - 1
Dim NewName As String = Me.ListBox1.Items.Item(FileCount).Tag
End Sub

Save / Load XML Files With Dialog Box?

May 2, 2010

I am creating a program that uses XML files and saves them automatically when the user updates information. When I have XElement.Save("Name.xml") it saves the XML file in the same directory as the EXE. What I am trying to do is allow the user so select the location of the XML. Also is loading XML files through the loaddialog box basically the same way as XElement.Load("Name.xml")?

Reflection - Loading XML Files Into .Net Structures?

Aug 20, 2010

I have many, (15-20) different XML files that I need to load to VB.Net. They're designed as they would be in a database; they're designed in Access and bulk exported into XML files. Each file represents a different table in the database.Now, I need to load this information into VB.Net. Initially, I'd love to use DAO and access the MDB directly via queries, but this won't be possible as I'm making sure the project will be easily ported to XNA/C# down the road. (Xbox 360 cannot use MDBs, so I'd rather deal with this problem now than down the road).

So, I'm stuck now trying to figure out how to wrangle together all of these XML files together.I've tried using Factories to parse each one individually. E.g., if three XML files contain data for a 'character' class, i'd pass in an instance of Character to each XML factory and the classes would apply the necessary data.I'm trying to get past this though, as maintaining many different classes with redundant code is a pain. plus it is hard to debug as well. So I'm trying to figure out a new solution.

The only thing I can think of right now is using System.Reflection, where I parse through each member of the class/structure I'm instantiating, and then using the names of those members to read in the data from that element of the XML file.However, this makes the assumption that each member of the structure/class has a matching element in the XML file, and vice-versa.

Errors In Loading Files That Are Already Open / Countermeasures Have So Far Failed

Apr 4, 2011

In the game I'm making I have a background worker thread simulating the game and constantly outputting data to a file.I want to be able to access that file while simulation is going on. I understand that you can't access the same file simultaneously in two threads so I don't mind having the program (say on a button click) wait until the simulation isn't using the file.I can't seem to do that though! Whenever I either save or load the file I have a bolAccessingFiles variable which I check to make sure things don't happen simultaneously. I change the value to True just before opening any files and False just after closing any files.

This doesn't seem to work though. It seems as though the computer will still be using the file in some way even though the code has kept going. I need that when I next access the file I have a stronger way of checking if the file is already in use, and if so make it wait."The process cannot access the file 'C:UsersDavidDocumentsVisual Studio 2010ProjectsGameGameinx86Debugoutput.txt' because it is being used by another process."

Loading Text Files Into Oracle Using Creation Date?

Apr 12, 2011

I've written a loading program that writes text files to our database. The text files are dumped by another system every 2 hours onto on a shared network drive at my work. Here's the problem though - the files don't have a date/time stamp within them. I've been getting the date for each file from the creation date. That works okay, but when I've written loading programs in the past, I like to move the loaded files into a folder called "Loaded Files". That way, I can quickly see visually how many files I've loaded vs how many have not be loaded.

The problem this time, is that if I were to move the file into another folder, the creation date changes...a lesson I learned when I copied all of the files into a directory on my C: for testing. They all had the same date/time stamp!My question is, what's the best way to handle this? I don't want to move the files after loading them if it alters their creation date. I mean, what if I have to go back and load one for some reason, the date will be lost forever. I also don't want to write something into the software that has to check a file each time before loading it to the database.

When I load the app. the combobox is filled with the paths. I'm using the SelectedIndexChanged to load the treeview. Everything works.

The issue is that it also starts to load the paths the treeview also gets loaded (slow), but it should only load when I select an item in the combobox.

I tried comboboxselectedtextchanged etc, but without any luck. Besides that loading the files and folders is slow.

Streaming Files - No Dialog - Streams Relatively Large Documents From A Webservice To A Proxy (Web Site)

Aug 2, 2011

I have a system which needs to be secure which streams relatively large documents from a webservice to a proxy (Web site) whch then grabs the stream and pushes this to the client. This works but there are some issues where it seems the response is not being pushed until the entire stream is complete? whether this is the case Im not sure have run charles and until it completes it is "Waiting for response".

The documents are currently PDF but it needs to handle many other types for the future. The octet stream etc is mostly testing related, how to get the Dialog to show - saying save as? for the large files the little ones don't matter to much but the big ones leave a big waiting period with no response.

Get The 'Progress' Dialog To Display Immediately After The 'Install Icon' Dialog Disappears?

Jun 4, 2009

I have a simple desktop application that uses a .NET setup project (.msi file) to perform the installation. On the first installation, everything proceeds in a timely fashion with good feedback for the user.The problem occurs when the user is installing the latest version of the application over an old version on their machine.There is an unacceptably long delay of about 60 to 180 seconds from the time the installer's 'Welcome' dialog [It's not the Welcome dialog, I've removed that from the Start section of the setup project and replaced it with a CheckBox dialog to ask if the user wants a shortcut on the desktop] disappears until the 'Progress' dialog appears. The user sees minute(s) of blank screen and thinks the install has stopped or failed.

In the setup project properties, I've got the 'DetectNewerInstalledVersion' and 'RemovePreviousVersions' properties set to true. So, I believe that while nothing appears to be happening, the installer is actually removing the old version. The 'Progress' dialog does not appear until the new version begins installation.I've been trying to either:

a) Get the 'Progress' dialog to display immediately after the 'Install Icon' dialog disappears

b) Show another dialog while the Uninstall is running to let the user know that the setup is still running and everything is OK.

I have been unsuccessful with both methods. I'm using VS 2008 SP1?
