  The forum is a mess - Let's fix it.
Posted by: brandonio21 - 09-20-2013, 11:06 PM - Forum: Computing - No Replies

Hey guys! I hope we're all doing well!

So I recently ran into a bunch of errors regarding an anti-spam mod I have been using for a bit. It turns out, my knowledge of phpBB is so minimal that updating the plugin(mod) caused the forum to die.

Well, this caused me to look into the forum's mySQL and FTP structures. They are a catastrophe.

Several years of uneducated modification has ruined the structure of the forum - so I am going to have to fix it. I am going to start by uninstalling all mods and starting from scratch. Keep in mind, users, posts, pictures, files, and all of our precious data shouldn't go anywhere. I will also be making regular backups.

With that being said, if you experience any forum downtime in the next few weeks - do not be alarmed! It is intentional! (More or less)

But - Do you guys have any suggestions for improvements for the forum? Theme suggestions? Ranking suggestions? Feature suggestions? Anything at all? Your contribution is much appreciated!

*Sorry for the crazy English - I am very tired.

  NumberFormatException with Snake
Posted by: Timkat1994 - 09-16-2013, 03:04 AM - Forum: Programming Help - Replies (1)

Hi! I'm following the 8th video of the Snake tutorial and I seem to have missed something and/or completely screwed up. I just started trying to learn Java today and after watching the Tutorials I got started on following the Snake videos. I learn well by example, so these have all been fantastic. I've been at it for hours now, and I can't seem to find what I've done wrong here. The file on the snake page here doesn't have the High Score part added, otherwise I would compare that and mine. Any help would be much appreciated!

Here is the error message:

Exception in thread "Thread-3" java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: " 40"
at java.lang.NumberFormatException.forInputString(Unknown Source)
at java.lang.Integer.parseInt(Unknown Source)

at snakeCanvas.Move(snakeCanvas.java:142)
at snakeCanvas.run(snakeCanvas.java:267)
at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

Here is my progress:

  Create the perfect Windows GUI
Posted by: brco900033 - 09-09-2013, 10:15 AM - Forum: Graphic Design - No Replies

I was just surfing on the web about creating a usefull Windows GUI and found that Microsoft has a document with general guidelines on how to create the perfect Windows User-Interface.

You can download this document in PDF format here: http://download.microsoft.com/download/e...XGuide.pdf

This document contains 900 pages, thus very detailed. Ofcourse you can read the topics that you need information about and skip the rest.
It contains very usefull information as I stated before, for example on hoiw to use Listboxes, Buttons, how to write down your Text and how to use a ProgressBar... The list goes on and on.

Definitely something you should try out

  Usage value of properties
Posted by: brco900033 - 08-31-2013, 06:13 AM - Forum: Programming Help - Replies (2)

Hi, I have a little question here

I'm using a lot of properties but I don't know what value to use in my other subs. I find it hard to explain so I have an example:

[code2=vbnet]'This is the property itself
Private _TextCancelButton As String = "Cancel"
<Category("TextFields"), Description("The text shown in the Cancel button"), DefaultValue("Cancel")>
Public Property TextCancelButton() As String
Return _TextCancelButton
End Get
Set(value As String)
_TextCancelButton = value
cmdCancel.Text = _TextCancelButton
End Set
End Property[/code2]

Now what should I use know to change the text of the Cancel button, for example when another button is clicked?

[code2=vbnet]cmdCancel.Text = _TextCancelButton
cmdCancel.text = TextCancelButton[/code2]

I think it is the same, or not?

Thanks, Brecht

  Using the WebClient Class To Track Download Progress
Posted by: brandonio21 - 08-23-2013, 01:12 PM - Forum: Code Snippets - No Replies

Using this code snippet, you should be able to download any file to your computer and track it's progress using a progressbar or a label (Or any other control which you desire). Below is a sample snippet, so be sure to change variable names to match your project!

[code2=vbnet]Imports System.Net
Public Class Form1

Private Sub btn_downloadStart_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles btn_downloadStart.Click
Dim wc As New WebClient 'This allows us to actually download the files
AddHandler wc.DownloadProgressChanged, AddressOf DownloadProgressChanged 'Link the progresschanged event with our subroutine
AddHandler wc.DownloadFileCompleted, AddressOf DownloadFileCompleted 'Link the downloadfilecompleted event with our subrouting
wc.DownloadFileAsync(New System.Uri("File URL"), "Local Path") 'Actually download the file (on another thread), change File URL and Local Path to your information
End Sub

Public Sub DownloadProgressChanged(sender As Object, e As DownloadProgressChangedEventArgs)
progress_download.Value = e.ProgressPercentage 'Displays download progress on a progress bar
lbl_details.Text = e.BytesReceived & "/" & e.TotalBytesToReceive 'Displays download progress (as fraction) in a label
End Sub

Public Sub DownloadFileCompleted(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
MsgBox("The file has completed downloading!") 'Tell the user the download is complete
End Sub
End Class[/code2]

A video tutorial for this code snippet should be coming soon!

  Usefull software for program development
Posted by: brco900033 - 08-13-2013, 10:30 AM - Forum: Computing - Replies (2)

I wanted to make this thread because I have found some usefull programs for the development of software. It is actually not for the development itself but other important extra features that are underestimated a bit (I think).

Creating a program is one thing but you need to create for example help files, a decent installer... That takes time again but you want that program online as fast as possible. That's why I want to share a quick list of software that can come in handy, these programs will fasten up the progress a lot!

* Free icons
Use free icons you can download from https://www.iconfinder.com/. Make sure you set your filters right (set to For commercial use, no backlink). You can also buy icons for one buck (max).

* Advanced Installer
You can create professional looking installers with this. I use it all the time and have got no problems so far. There are so many possibilities, you won't believe! http://www.advancedinstaller.com/. This program has a free mode where you can create installers with the basic needs.
If you need a simpler program I would recommend InstallCreator!

* Create Help files
I've tested some of these programs and the one that I actually like for its performance and easy-to-use interface is Help & Manual 6 [url](<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.helpandmanual.com/">http://www.helpandmanual.com/</a><!-- m -->[/url]). With this one you can create HTML, PDF, CHM... all the formats used for help-files.

* Create covers
Expensive 3D designers make covers for you but nobody wants to pay so much for just a cover, that's why I included TBS Cover Editor in this list. The default templates are everything you need for creating professional looking covers. (http://www.trueboxshot.com/TBSCoverEditor)

* Free FTP Server of 10Gb
1FreeHosting gives you a free FTP server of 10Gb with a lot of extra features like an own é-mail client and a website (with subdomain, need pro for normal one!)

* Axialis IconWorkshop
This is a famous one and I think almost everybody knows it but I couldn't forget him from the list. Very easy to make icons. For example just download an icon that you like from IconFinder and export it as an .ico in Axialis. (http://www.axialis.com/iconworkshop/)

* Telerik JustCode, JustMock and JustTrace
I have used them in Trial mode and watched some videos of them in full action and these tools do wonders... if you can use them properly (that is one problem because I find it very, very hard!)

*Create webpages
A Drag and Drop interface to make websites (http://www.serif.com/webplus/). This program has some extra features like photo galleries (no programming needed, just drag and drop), default templates... Ofcourse if you need something extra you can make it yourself and implement it easily.

I know these programs are not free and some are very expensive but I think you guys will find a way around if you know what I mean...

Note: If you have some usefull programs you can also post them below if you want.
