Doesn't seem possible

It doesn't seem possible. But would the following also seem a
violation of the general notions behind css?

You have a DIV, say asociated with class, 'topdiv'.

Inside of that you have an anchor (and whatever it contains),
associated with class, 'a'.

Somewhere else in, 'topdiv', there is a span or element (containing
whatever), associated with class, 'b'.

Can you read the pseudo selector :hover for 'a', and somehow modify
presentation for 'b'?

..topdiv.a A:hover .b ?

The anchor element becomes a trigger for a style change to b, in other
words. It doesn't seem possible. Yet both 'a' and 'b' are in scope in
'topdiv', but outside each other's scope.

You can put <span class="b"> inside <a class="a">, and use
positioning to make it look like it's somewhere else.

..topdiv a.a:link .b{
position:relati ve;
left:8em;
top:3em;
color:red;
}
..topdiv a.a:hover .b{
position:relati ve;
left:8em;
top:3em;
color:blue;
}

<div class="topdiv">
<a class="a">hover this<span class="b"> and see this change
colour</span></a>
</div>

Not tested!

Hi All I'm using .getRows() with a local var array instead of doing a recursive loop so that I'm being a good ASP newvbie and closing my object i/o's (the recordset in this case) as quick as possible. My problem is that I can't seem to use this to complete good effect because the IsArray statement doesn't seem to work with a local var array that has or has not been populated with the .getRows() property.

I have form that looks a lot like a search bar for the user to search for records matching specified criteria (e.g. first names containing "ben"). For robust results, an intermediary form displays all records matching the criteria (hmm...sound like a popular web site I know). Here is the immediate problem: my code (below) works fine on my computer, but on some of those belonging to my work colleagues (who will be the end users of the db)...

I have this problem... I want to add controls to a WebForm (any kind of controls... panels, buttons, datagrids,...) at runtime and I could do that with HtmlControls :" Label myLabel = new Label(); this.Controls.Add(myLabel) " but I don't know how to add events to them such as onClick, OnKeyDown... There is a ServerClick event that doesn't seem to be working... If anyone could help me :wink:

I´m new to ASP.Net. My workmate has some experience with it. He claimed that in ASP.Net working with frames is much simpler than it was ASP. I asked explanation but he couldn't give me such. (a button inside a-tag with attribute target isn't anything new relating ASP.Net, its same old HTML). He claimed that you could change another page´s controls´s property´s value from another frame by using this method: ' Page "Bottom"

Why the C standard committee doesn't provide a standard implementation including the C compiler and library when the language standard document is published? C works on the abstract model of low level machine. C stands for portability and platform and machine independent. If the C compiler and C standard library are written in C itself, is it possible that one "standard" C compiler plus library is enough? The standard implementation is...

I'm trying to have the user browse to a folder, once they click a button, using the standard FolderBrowserDialog tool, System.Windows.Forms.FolderBrowserDialog. I'm using VB.Net 2005. There is a property, SelectedPath, that you're supposed to be able to set that will initialize the folder browser window so that the tree structure is already opened at that folder. The problem is that it doesn't seem to work. No matter what I put, it has...

There have been a series of questions about directory operations, all of which have been answered with "there is no portable way to do this". This raises the perfectly reasonable question, why, in this day and age, does the C standard have no abstract and portable method for dealing with directories? It doesn't seem like a particularly difficult problem. For instance, this int show_current_directory(struct DIRSTRUCT *current_directory);

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,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
