Most development for the Microsoft platform is done utilizing the technologies supported by the.NET framework. Other development is done using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) for programs like Access, Excel, Word and Outlook, with PowerShell for scripting, or with SQL for large databases.

Build an E-Commerce Site with Angular 5

Learn how to build an E-Commerce site with Angular 5, a JavaScript framework used by developers to build web, desktop, and mobile applications.

I'm trying to investigate a problem with resource files generated by Google Omaha. These resource files contain a place-holder token (%1!s!), which is substituted with branding details during the build process. There are numerous language resource files that contains string tables and this

Here is an example string: "%1!s! some arbitrary text"

Where %1!s! is a place-holder for some substitution text?

My question: is this place-holder substitution mechanism a standard part of the Windows resource file mechanism? If so, can someone please either explain how it works? Where does it get the text used to substitute the place holder? I'm assuming the place-holder works similar to place-holders in printf? If so, how does it know which text token to replace this with? If this is not a standard resource file mechanism, does anyone have a clue as to how Omaha does this during the build process?

Many thanks.

Note: I'm not looking for suggestions to use a different approach. This is how Omaha does it and I just need to understand how this works. Thank you.

Need a Windows Forms User Interface to enable OCR User Error Checking

I am in the process of writing a Windows Forms application (in C#) that will use an external OCR module to perform OCR on a PDF containing scanned financial documents. So, I expect there to be errors. But, I want to provide the scanned results to the user in a format where the results can be cross-checked by the user.

Clearly, typing over with the corrected value is key.

What is the easiest way to do this in a Windows Forms program?

Various forms will have different values, so I want this as generic as possible.

Shall I just display the whole block of data as a multi-line text input field?

Any other ideas?

Thanks

A  RichTextBox is used to right justify numerals. This is the only reason to use it.

The content to save cannot be directly accessed. Looking on the web examples are found that are complex and difficult to understand. Not realizing that there is some "hoop-jumping" required to get its content, the control was selected. Does anyone know how to do this simply and if not is there any advice that will make retrieving content easier to understand?

Thank you for any advice you may offer.

There is a section in an app that requires the user to type each of 5 items into a RichTextBox. Whenever a controls has focus, SelectAll is called highlight the numeral for quick edit.

--Tab event highlights on entry
--Focus event highlights

--Mouse events do not fired: MouseLeftButtonUp, MouseLeftButtonDown, MouseDown,  MouseUp, etc.

    Private Sub richtxtPerennialsCount_MouseLeftButtonUp(sender As Object, e As MouseButtonEventArgs) Handles richtxtPerennialsCount.MouseLeftButtonUp
        richtxtPerennialsCount.SelectAll()
    End Sub

Without these events when a controls is clicked the content is not highlighted.  What's needed is to highlighted so the content is deleted on first key press.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

My issue or question is about software development in genereal.

I am currently studying software development and will be studying software engineering shortly. At the same time I am doing an internship have been asked to create an employee database with Microsoft Access. As I am developing this by myself, I will doing it the traditional way: software elicitation/Analysis/requirements/implementation - the way taught at university.

This morning, I was asked by my boss how long it will take me to complete this project. As I am doing it for the first time in such a structured way, I would appreciate it if I could get some feedback from you guys how long it can take to complete a smaller Access project -  either each phase of development (following IEEE format) or for the entire project.

Although my boss has worked in (big) projects, they apparently never worked in structured way: not agile, spiral, waterfall etc.. Although the product works, I thought that not only is important to deliver a quality product, but also add quality how I work.

Could it be possible that my approach is too structured and some Projects are indeed never done in a structured way?
Or that what is taught in software development/engineering is not applied in real projects - in other words too theoretical?

Thanks for your feedback

Hello,

This is a follow-up to another thread located here:

Create an executable file to open a non-executable file

In that thread, expert Joe Winograd provided a solution which involves creating an AutoHotkey (ahk) "Run" command (which I know how to do) then compiling the resulting .ahk file to create an .exe file. That was a great solution and I'm glad to now know how to do that. However, since closing the previous thread, I've realized that that solution is not practical for the specific purpose* that prompted my question.

As a result, I'm back to my original question which is:

How do you directly create an executable file (.exe or .cmd) to open a non-executable file (.xlsm, .txt, .ahk, etc)?

In the previous thread, expert tuvi suggested putting the following in a .cmd file:

start C:\Users\UserName\FolderName\FileName.xlsm

Open in new window

Unfortunately, while I know how to place a command in the cmd/prompt/DOS window (not sure what it's called), I do not know how to create a .cmd or .exe file. I tried simply pasting the above line in a Notepad window then saving it, first with a .cmd extension and then with an .exe extension but neither of those worked.

It seems like something I should know how to do but that's why I'm happy all of you great experts are available to answer questions. :)

Thanks…

How do I get Visual Studio 2017 to validate <script> tags in source code with CORS attributes?

Okay, this is an annoyance rather than a life or death problem!  I am working on a website which uses externally hosted scripts in some of its pages.  The script tags have CORS attributes (integrity and crossorigin).  Visual Studio is validating the code against the HTML5 schema.  So Visual Studio is picking these up as warnings in its error list and underlining the code with green squiggly lines.

I know I can just ignore them, or turn validation off.  I'd prefer to have them recognised as valid markup.  Is there any way that I can do that?

InfoPath 2010 form submission is not saving to sharepoint 2010 site, and end user has no errors upon submission.  The .xml file does not get saved to sharepoint, how do you troubleshoot this?  I figured it was something like incorrect permissions to a site/library for the end user to save their files.  But I check an Identical user permission with someone that is able to submit and view their documents.  The user that does not work has identical permissions.  Its very strange, and there are no reported errors from the user...

I'm able to pass the query parameter successfully to the field however when the item is saved the record is not being saved to the list. What's interesting is that if I manually override the passed value by typing into the field on the form and then clicking save, the record is saved to the list .

We have a working example of this on the same site for a different list that we created about a year ago and does not have this issue.


Original Code Provided when a new form was created for the list in SPD:
<SharePoint:FormField runat="server" id="ff1{$Pos}" ControlMode="New" FieldName="AttachmentsID" __designer:bind="{ddwrt:DataBind('i',concat('ff1',$Pos),'Value','ValueChanged','ID',ddwrt:EscapeDelims(string(@ID)),'@AttachmentsID')}"/>
<SharePoint:FieldDescription runat="server" id="ff1description{$Pos}" FieldName="AttachmentsID" ControlMode="New"/>


Removed the above code and replaced with the following:                                                            
<asp:TextBox runat="server" id="ff1{$Pos}" Name="FileName" Text="{$AttachmentsID}" Value="{@AttachmentsID}" __designer:bind="{ddwrt:DataBind('i',concat('ff1',$Pos),'Text','TextChanged','ID',ddwrt:EscapeDelims(string(@ID)),'@AttachmentsID')}" Width="100px" Height="20px" BorderWidth="0" />

Making a cross platform Forms App for Windows, Mac, iPhone, Android

I just installed .NET CORE for Mac and selected Project > New Solution but was surprised to not find an option for Windows. iOS is iPhone and Mac, true?

Anyway, do I build the entire app once for these four platforms? Or do I build common objects and need to create custom UI's for the mobile side with Xamarin?

Thanks

I am new to .NET CORE but need to find if I need a library, or what I might need, in order to read the contents of a PDF report and turn it into parseable data.

I have an MDI Form and a Login Form in VB.NET. When the user enters the data correctly, I present the mdi form that is the main one. When the user closes the MDI Form I want to present the Login Form again. So I want to know what to do to be able to present the same instance of the Login Form. I have tried several methods and none of them work for me.

Login_Form calls MDI_Form, when closing MDI_Form, present Login_Form again.

Please give me examples and what would be the best solution.
