Advice on whether or not Microsoft has fixed the buggy combos .. thus worth the move from VS2003 to VS2005

To upgrade or not? This, to me, is based upon whether or not Microsoft
has -- at least -- fixed the buggy controls from VS2003:

Combo (clearing and binding context issues)
Checked ListBox (checked items losing status when control goes visible)
Datagrid (header alignment to the right smashes into the grid)
DataAdapter (creates timestamp for Insert command, amongst other oddities)

Did I forget something? Does anyone know for certain if these items have
been fixed in VS2005?

There are a number of changes with the ComboBox in 2005. Most notably the
SelectedIndex=-1 bug.
It still has an issue when clearing the selected item via the keyboard
(selecting the text and hitting delete). The control doesn't fire a Validate
because it doesn't detect a SelectedItemCha nged (as no item is selected?)
Thus, it is better but not perfect.

The datagrid header alignment issue is fixed.

Thanks to both. I forgot to mention the wacko TabControl bindingcontext
issue, but here's praying it was so obvious that it got fixed.

Hi Ken,

I am facing some problems while working with datagird in my windows form.
I want my datagrid as readonly, but on certain condition I want to make it
as updatable. But a a time only one row should be updatable (like web form).
And after editing the data I should be able to save to changes to my database.
How can I achieve this.
I also would like to know waht is the best approached to save data in
database via datagrid.

Thank in advance.
Shailesh.

Hi guys, I've been playing with this query for about a week now, and I still can't find ways to speed it up. It runs for about 5 minutes. The only table (among the 41) with significant amount of data is dbo.S_EVT_ACT, which contains about 900,000 records. The query is automatically generated by Siebel, and therefore not really modifiable. And hints are not really possible. While looking at the exec plan, we can see that what takes so long...

Greetings, My group has an SDK that was developed 5 years ago with VC++ 6. Over the last years, the requests for a VS.NET SDK has reached critical mass and I am now in the process of doing that. Actually, the first release of this 'port' is be a simple rebuild of the unmanaged C++ SDK in VS.NET. I have done this part already, using VS.NET 2003.

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,...
