Handling Key Messages in MDI

I have an MDI application where I need to draw a line using Left/Right arrow
keys. It works fine if it has just one child, but with more than one it
switches between children. I've tried the following function, but I'm not
getting any hits on it. (Using Studio 2005 Beta)

protected override void WndProc(ref Message m)


if (m.Msg == WM_KEYDOWN)


Keys keyCode = (Keys)m.WParam & Keys.KeyCode;

switch (keyCode)


case Keys.Left:

Console.WriteLi ne("Left Key");


case Keys.Right:

Console.WriteLi ne("Right Key");




base.WndProc(re f m);

Hi all. Handling files is an extremely frequent task in programming, so most programming languages have an abstraction of the basic files offered by the underlying operating system. This is indeed also true for our language of choice, Python. Its file type allows some extraordinary convenient access like: for line in open("blah"): handle_line(line)

I am having exception-handling and stability problems with .NET. I will have a block of managed code inside try...catch and will still get a generic ..NET exception box that will tell me which assemblies are loaded before shutting down. In one case, some of my DB-accessing code didn't handle a NULL value properly. But try...catch wouldn't catch the exception and keep going. I'd just get the error message and then it would shut the...

hy, I've a question concerning exception-handling in c++: is there a possibility to catch any exception (I know one can do that by "catch(...)") and display its default-error-message (like in Java)? or do you have to create your own exceptions and make your own error-messages? I would only need the error-number or something like a short description which exception occured, and subsequently I want to write it to a logfile.

I've created my own function for error handling using set_error_handler(). My problem is that, when using copy() to copy files, I can't suppress system's error messages. So when I'm trying to copy a file that does not exist I get two error messages: mine and system's. I've tried the @ operator with no luck: @copy(...) Apart from adding extra checks so copy() never returns an error or using system(), is there a way to replace all error...

Hi, I would like to hear about everybody's exception handling strategies. I currently just catch my exceptions and display all my messages on the page that the exceptions occurs, in a label. I don't have a centralized page for all error. What are some good ways that I can centralize my error handling and take control, in one place, of all my exception messages for my user?

I am currently designing an application which should be accessible from different interfaces. For this I like to be using stored procedures to process the contents of form submissions and dialog screens. After studying the PG database, it seems to me that I can fulfill the following requirements. a) The basic contents of the internal data dictionary can be used to check incoming fields from on their length and permitted contents.

We have an ASP.NET 2.0 (C#) application that is divided into multiple layers. The multiple layers come from having a web project and 2 different class library projects in the same solution. I'm having difficulties figuring out the best way to handle (catch) exceptions in the different layers and then propagating those errors back up through the call stack to ultimately display something to the end-user. Note this is an intranet...

I need some good ideas or references for robust error handling in VB.NET. I am using try catch but find myself using the generic exception handler. I would like to get more precise error handling so I can take appropriate action and display user friendly error messages back to the client. The problem I am getting is determining which error types can be thrown for each function/sub and handling them. Is there a way to determine all the...

Coming from the .Net world, I am used to the try...catch...finally approach to error handling. And PHP 5 now supports this approach. But I am not clear what happens to unhandled errors/exceptioins? Do I define a default error handler as well as do my try/catch? Can I mix error handling with the exceptions? Is one approach better than the other? TIA John

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
