can anyone tell me if it is possible in C# to open a file which is located in the same folder as the application without specifying the path to that file? if both file and program is located for example on C:/containfileandprog can i open the file from within a program without writing C:/containfileandprog but just the filename.dat? i have no control on where the file or the program is going to be installed so i cant specify them in advance. but i can make sure that they both end up in the same folder where ever the enduser might …

Hi Can anyone please tell me whether I can write a java program and start it in a way other that involves the command line? And not applets either. I want to start writting all of our company software in java, leaving behind c#. But the problem is I can only run java programs from the command line using the java command. End users will not like this. Is there anyway to make java programs more user friendly By providing a shortcut on the desktop and adding it to the start menu. Thanks in advance Rav Wolf

Hi. Can anyone give me some advice on designing a layered architecture for a software project i am working on? since i always develop my programs in modules they come out in some form of layered architechture but this is always by accident. i want to develop it layered from the start. i have thought of the following layers. database access layer, screen layer, processing the data from the database layer, do calculations and deal with the user layer. these layers should explain themselves. i would appreciate it if someone can tell me if this is good or whether i …

I suppose that this is the wrong place to voice critique of php but does the lack of good php books not make php a bit of a nightmare. i have been on amazon and all the books have a review or two which says something about typos or misleading naming or something like that. of course many books have some good reviews and almost all books have a bad review or two but in the case of php it is extremely severe. in fact i am about to recomend to my boss that it would be better to go …

Can one work with textboxes etc from a class other than the form of which the textbox is a part? the scenario is as follows. if one has a form then any method or function on that form can work with a textbox or something located on that form. but i have created another class as a screen manager and i have found that this class cannot work with the textboxes. am i doing something wrong or is it just impossible to work with textboxes or any controls from another class?

is there still a point in learning classical data structures and algorithms when the dot net framework and even the java API has collections which can do everything that these classic algorithm does? the reason why i ask is that i do not want to waste my time learning them since it seems that they would not be needed for long. they might be needed in C++ or C but even there would not one well developed class library solve all data structure issues well and for all?

can you guys in the first world, especially america, give me some help please. my friends and i are in constant argument about whether or not to live in first world countries. i say that because of the fact that they are first world and have higher per capita gdp it should be better. i also point out how much people earn. for example in america the minimum wage is almost six times ours. this of course gave some idiots the oppurtunity to ague that living there is more expensive too. of course it would be but the ratio of …

am i the only one who thinks that c# screen development really sucks? i have just completed the silly task of repeating the same 30 lines of code sixteen times. and why, some might ask, are you so silly to do that? it is because, unlike java and visual basic 6.0, c# has no damn way of creating control arrays. so where you could just have written some generic function and just pass it an argument or use some for control loop you have to repeat the same sud forsaken code for each and every single textbox which does the …

here is a question which some would consider silly but i would still love to ask. what are the chances of C# or java replacing c++ as the gaming language? more and more books are being written about game design in C#. c++ has the advantages of being fast and small in memory. but computers gets ever faster and memory gets ever bigger. consider intel's plan for a processor with 8 cores. each with hyperthreading. that is 16 processors. and the planned changes to the bus which would greatly improve memory access. not only would this make the computer powerfull …

Hi. I am currently working on a quote system project. The final step of the quote would be to print the quote. Does anyone know whether it is possible to create a pdf file with c# coding? even if i first have to create something else like a XML file it would be OK. I just need to know whether it is possible and a few clues or ideas as to how to do it. Although preference is for pdf a word document would also be fine. I would really appreciate your help. Thank you.
