CWinThread wont exit in Release mode but will in Debug mode visual studio 2017.

Here is what I am doing
CWinThread *ptrDecode = AfxGetThread();
CCriticalSection c_sDecode;
static UINT mDecode(void*);
ptrDecode = NULL;

void myfuction::startThread()
{
      if (ptrDecode == NULL) {
	  ptrDecode = AfxBeginThread(mDecode, this);
	  WaitForSingleObject(ptrDecode, INFINITE);
	}
}

UINT /*WINAPI*/  mDecode(void* pParam)
{
	myfuction* pThis = (myfuction*)pParam;
	CSingleLock lock(&c_sDecode);

	lock.Lock();
	while (1) {
               if (!inputVideo.read(RTSPframe)) {
					//Error
					break;
				}
				
				if (!theApp.RTSPChangeCam) // if == false break out of while loop
					break;

				inputVideo.read(RTSPframe);
				cv::resize(RTSPframe, RTSPResize, cv::Size(RTSPWidth, RTSPHeight), 0, 0, INTER_LINEAR);
				theApp.DX11Images->render();
        }
ptrDecode = NULL;
	theApp.KillDecoder = false;
	lock.Unlock();
	return 0;
}

void myfuction::OnDestroy()
{
	CDialogEx::OnDestroy();
	
	//## make sure nothing is being rendered ##//
	//## kill any RTSP Streams ##//
	theApp.RTSPChangeCam = false;
	while (ptrDecode != NULL) {} // wait until thread exits

}

Open in new window


In OnDestroy() function the while loop waits until ptrDecode == null after theApp.RTSPChangeCam is set to false this cause the while loop in the thread to break and set ptrDecode to null and the dialog then can safely exit this work fine in debug mode and my watch window is showing me that ptrDecode has been set to null but in Release mode ptrDecode dose gets set to null if I place a break point in the thread code but then is reset to not null (seems to get reloaded) when my bullet point hits ptrDecode in the OnDestroy() function, I do not know why this is being re initilized after its been set to null. At no point in my code dose the thread get called again and it only dose it in Release mode.
Is there a setting in my release properties I need to change any help would be great

Hi, so I have a Visual Studio 2010 solution that I'm trying to open.  The problem is two-fold:

1. I can't open the solution in VS 2010 because it keeps saying I need to install SQL SSDT for 2010.  Tried to find and install it with no luck.  Keeps prompting me for it even when I "think" I have it installed

2. I have VS 2013 also installed but that has SSDT installed for it (again, I believe).  The problem though is that it's saying the solution is under source control so it won't even open it.  How do I "break" the bindings of the source control?

I did not create the solution, it was from a third party.  Any and all help would be great, thanks!

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.

Having bought a new machine (running Windows 10 professional) I Have installed the following:

MS Visual Studio 2017 community
MS SQLServer express 2017
Team Foundation Server express 2015

I find that I do the have the option in VS to "Connect to Team Foundation Server"


I have "Visual Studio Team Foundation Server" set as the Source-Control Plug-in.

I can see my server in Source Control Explorer but cannot add folders or items.

If I go into Team Explorer I can see GIT repos   (dunno how to use these) and I can sometimes add a solution to Source control whereby it is visible in Source Control Explorer temporarily.

How can I connect to TFS correctly in VS 2017 Community please?

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.

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" />

SSRS Report Builder - Export to CSV issue; Double Quotes exist for each record.

We have a report that is scheduled to produce a CSV file.
This file is consumed by another application and requires specific formatting in order to successfully process the file.
The following entry has been configured within the 'rsreportserver.config' file:

<Extension Name="CSV (No Header)" Type="Microsoft.ReportingServices.Rendering.DataRenderer.CsvReport,Microsoft.ReportingServices.DataRendering">
                        <OverrideNames>
                              <Name Language="en-AU"> CSV No Header</Name>
                        </OverrideNames>
                        <Configuration>
                              <DeviceInfo>
                                    <NoHeader>true</NoHeader>
                                    <Extension>CSV</Extension>
                                    <Encoding>UTF-8</Encoding>
                                    <Qualifier></Qualifier>
                              </DeviceInfo>
                        </Configuration>
                  </Extension>

The file that is being generated from this contains double quotes at the start and end of each record (see below).
"""FORMAT BATCH IMPORT, STANDARD 1.0"""
"DREF1,DDATE1,DSOURCE,DCLRENTITY,DENTITYPE,LLDGCODE,LACCNBR,LAMOUNT1,LNARR1,LNARR2,LNARR3,LPRESCSTAT,LGSTTYPE,LGSTRATECODE,BIMPNAME,BCLRENTITY"

The output we need is shown below:

Dear Experts,

I have an asp.net website that uses identity 2.1 (I'm pretty sure > 2.0 anyways as near as I can tell). It is written in visual basic. I ran into a weird issue the other day where people were logging in and getting this viewstate error:

Validation of viewstate MAC failed. If this application is hosted by a Web Farm or cluster, ensure that <machineKey> configuration specifies the same validationKey and validation algorithm. AutoGenerate cannot be used in a cluster.

So I followed the advice I found in the microsoft article and added a machine key to the web.config file so that no matter what it (hopefully) shouldn't get that error again.

Once the machine key was changed to one that I set now we had issues with anyone with an already existant authorization cookie on their computer, they were unable to login. I believe it's because the machine key that I set no longer matched the one that was used in their cookie. I'm not entirely clear how, but apparently it's part of how it's encrypted. If they clear their cookies, all is well - then they could login.

So one bit of advice I found searching on the web sounded super simple and super-easy. They recommended that you have some sort of set key in your web.config, like a guid or something and then you add it to your cookie also. Then, when you load the cookie, you can check the key and if it doesn't match your server key, somehow you invalidate the cookie.

I basically spent all day trying to figure out …

I setup main site on the IIS as an application and add virtual directories to it. My question is how do I address the MVC applications that would be published to the virtual directory. I try to use standard MVC addressing but it doesn't work.
Example
My site is http://server/main.
My virtual directory is vd1.
If I place index.html in vd1 the address of http://server/main/vd1/index.html works.
If I publish MVC application to vd1 the address http://server/main/vd1/home doesn't work

I've been trying to fix this for days now. Using Xamarin and Visual Studio, I deleted the asset catalogs/media folder then I used app icon set creator to create the icons. I then went into info.plist under visual assets and hit add catalog, then dragged the icons into the slots.

No matter how many times I try this I get the same error.

Since this is xamarin, I was told I have to create an IPA file and upload using ApplicationUploader.  The file uploads but then I get an email from Apple with a build file error shown above.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

thanks!!!!

We currently use Visual Studio 2008 v9.0.  When one user opens a proc on Monday (but does not check it out as they have no intention at that time to make changes) if another user checks out the proc on Tuesday , makes changes and checks it in.  There is nothing to stop the first user from making changes to the proc as he/she  has it in front of him (fro  Monday) and overwrite the changes that user 2 made on Tues.
Is there a way to prevent this - e.g. automatically refresh, or not allow changes checked in if not using the latest file or the problem seems to be that if you have a proc open, you can directly make changes and it will then get flagged as checked out, perhaps if this could be disabled so that the only way to check out a proc would be to reopen from scratch

Hi,

I'm in the process of developing an eBay application in Microsoft Access 2016. So far my project has been fine and the API calls I have made have been successful but I have now come to a stumbling block that I need some help with.

The API calls I have used so far are all for single listings so this is easy and I just pass the XML through an HTTP request. I want to make this much more efficient and use eBay's File Transfer API where I can send more than 1 call at a time but I'm really struggling on trying to understand how to build the call.

The data has to be sent as Binary Base64 which I have a converter to do this. I can build the XML that needs to be sent but I just don't understand how to send the XML from a string as apposed to a physical file.

I've read loads on the internet about having to create it as a multipart request with boundaries but really not sure how to start building that. I can provide code if need be so you can see where I am at.

I hope this makes sense.
