I had the same problem. One of my columns was named "Name". I changed it to "Name_col" and the problem disappeared. Using "Name" conflicted with an existing member.

Please show us the line of code and several lines before & after. It sounds like you just need to use the Text property.
columnHeader1 = "Desc" would give you that error. Use
columnHeader1.T ext = "Desc"

I got this error too, it was choking on the this.name = "frmMain"; line when initializing the windows form. Turns out a control inside that form, a ListView, had a column that I had named "Name". Changing that to something else allowed the project to build without errors. Any idea why?

Hi, I am receiving the error when compiling the project, "cannot implicitly convert type object to string". The error points to this line of code and underlines the dtrRecipient: objMailMessage.To = dtrRecipient; I'm not sure why I am getting this error. Below is the complete code I am working with.

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.
