hi, My problem is i have created a report using Crystal Report and the font-style is Roman 20 cpi. When i preview the report in Crystal Report, the font-style is still Roman 20 cpi but when i view the report using VB.NET the font-style has changed into another font-style. And actually window xp doesn't support this type of font-style but because i'm using the OKI ML 591 printer (dotmatrix), it allows me to have the Roman 20 cpi font-style. So what is happening actually? Is there anything wrong with the Crystal Report or VB.NET? Please help me as soon as …

Microsoft has the following example of how to use itemdata in .net It works fine if you are populating row by row from 0 to whatever I need to reset itemdata in a particular row that has been deleted, eg the microsoft example equates to the following lstBox.items.add("123",654) where 654 is the id in a database .net allows the following without using the class lstBox.items.add("123") which goes in row 0 lstBox.items.add("456") which goes in row 1 lstBox.items.add(1,"999") which is forced to row 1 so now we have rows 0-2 eg "123" in row 0 "999" in row 1 "123" in …

Alright i understand mybase.MouseMove event handles everytime the mouse is moved, but what i am having a problem with is using this code in a MDIContainer Form. When used here the mouse event is never trigged. So i am curious if there is away for this mouse event to be trigged or how i can go about getting the same results. The idea is i have an application that i want to be automatically logged out if there is no keyboard or mouse acitivity on the computer. Any ideas???? Thanks!
