I am learning C++ .net programming and was wondering why the code for creating a messagebox is [CODE=C#]MessageBox.Show("Hello, World!");[/CODE] in C# and [CODE=C++]MessageBox::Show("Hello, World!");[/CODE] in C++. Why is the dot substituted with a double colon in the C++ code? My source: [url]http://msdn.microsoft.com/nb-no/library/z9w2f38k[/url]

It’s that time of the year again, and the Microsoft Tech.Ed Developers Conference 2006 Europe has hit the beautiful city of Barcelona, capital city of Catalonia in Spain. Hot off the press news for today is the keynote speech by Eric Rudder, senior vice president of technical strategy with Microsoft. In this, Rudder revealed the new technologies for building ‘next generation applications’ to more than 3000 developers attending the conference. He highlighted the releases of Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0, Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office for the 2007 Microsoft Office system and ASP.NET AJAX, as well as urging the …

How much money does Microsoft need? As much as possible would appear to be the answer, considering that it has announced a $1.50 fee to download the Office 2007 Beta as from August 2nd. Claiming a requirement to cover server costs as a result of the 3 million people that have already participated in the trial in just a couple of months. This is, according to Microsoft, 500 percent more than was expected and hence the need for “a cost recovery measure” for future downloads although the online test drive version will remain free. Well whoopee doo on the generosity …

Good question, but the answer may not be as straightforward as the announcement this week by Microsoft, and the ongoing online media coverage, suggests. The impression given is that Microsoft is supporting the Open Document Format in Office 2007 by sponsoring an open source based translator. This will take documents in the native Office 2007 Open XML format and convert them to ODF ones. Great stuff considering that ODF did not even exist in the Microsoft universe as recently ago as 2005, what with it being a rival format and all, indeed, some would say THE rival as ODF is …

Reports of the death of PDF support within Office 2007 and Vista are not only presumptuous but wrong. Despite the high profile publicity given to a spat between Adobe and Microsoft over the ‘Save as PDF’ function seen in the [URL="http://www.microsoft.com/office/preview/beta/getthebeta.mspx?showIntro=n"]Office 2007 Beta[/URL], there is no doubting that users will be able to do just that in the release version. What they won’t be able to do is do so out of the box. Instead, a totally free and downloadable plug-in will be made available by Microsoft. Apparently there have been discussions ongoing between [URL="http://www.adobe.com"]Adobe [/URL]and [URL="http://www.microsoft.com"]Microsoft [/URL]for the best …

Most people have had experience of, or currently use Microsoft Office, either at work or home, but I would think most people would find it hard to spot the differences between Office 2000, XP, and 2003. Apart from updated aesthetics on the latter, not much has changed through the generations, certainly not enough to warrant continuous upgrades. So what will the next Microsoft Office, codenamed Office “12
