Conditional -- ?

What does "conditiona l" mean as a command? sp_who2 reports this for
some sessions, along with "insert" etc.

An IF or WHILE statement. Typically with a query in the condition, like
IF EXISTS(SELECT ...). If this query is long-running, or the longest
running in a stuck loop, CONDITIONAL is likely to turn up.

Would anyone like to comment on the following idea? I was just going to offer it as a new PEP until it was suggested that I post it here for comment & consideration against PEP 308. I'm far from being a "language internist" (on Python or anything else) so go easy on me if this is stupid - it just seemed quite elegant to me as a relative newbie in town :-) I also havent got a clue whether this would be easy or even possible

Hello all! For quite some time now, I've got the following problem: Access won't close properly when a user closes the application.

I have an A2000 database in which I have a continuous form with a tick box. There is also a text box with a conditional format that is based on the expression , if it's true then change the background colour. In A2000 it works great, but in A2003 the background doesn't always change and when it does it only changes when the record looses the focus. Any way around this? Is it a bug? Or have they "improved" it?

I have a project of several files with #defines to setup a conditional compile. I would like to put these #defines in a single file and change the conditional compile from this one file with the #defines using an "include like" directive. C# does not have a #include directive so it appears that I can not do this. Am I missing something? Is it possible to do this in c#.

After reading C# documentation the Conditional attribute seemed the way to go, but after inspecting the IL it seems those methods are still there and I imagine the CLR removes them. Using #if DEBUG means the code does not even reach the IL when compiling in release mode. Is there any benefit to using the Conditional Attribute? Am I right in thinking there will small performance overhead using over #if DEBUG.

I just found out that JavaScript 1.5 (I tested this with Firefox 1.0.7 and Konqueror 3.5) has support not only for standard function definitions, function expressions (lambdas) and Function constructors (these three I knew about), but also conditional function definitions, as described in http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Core_JavaScript_1.5_Guide:Defining_Functions ]. An example: function fun() {

I have many text fields with conditional formatting applied, specifically when the condition is "Field Has Focus". Without any events associated with the fields the conditional formatting works perfectly. However, I have code that runs under the ON CLICK event. The code changes the focus to other controls, which means the conditional formatting is no longer displayed. This part makes sense to me. Here's what doesn't make sense. The last...

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.
