Simple form creation problem - CF2005

This is driving me crazy! It should be so simple! Can anyone tell me
what is going wrong? All I am doing is adding a single button to a
form but it fails :-(

I am using VB.NET 2005 to create an application for Windows Mobile
2005. I have a form and in the Form_Load event I have the following
code:

Call BuildForm()
Me.Show()

Then, in the called sub I have the following:

Private Sub BuildForm()

Dim newButton As New Button

With newButton

.Name = "Switch"
.Anchor = AnchorStyles.Le ft
.Enabled = True
.Height = 50
.Left = 50
.Parent = Me
.Text = "Switch"
.Visible = True
.Width = 150

End With

Me.Controls.Add (newButton)

End Sub
Which gives me the following error on startup at the line "Dim
newButton As New Button":

System.NotSuppo rtedException was unhandled
Message="NotSup portedException "
StackTrace:

TIA,
Hugh

I have been having endless difficulty creating reports/queries that set any relevent parameters from controls in forms. I am creating an application under access 2003 but will target access 2000. The access file is in access 2000 format. I have a form that will hold the relevent parameters for the query/report that reports the statistics for all job records that match a certain criteria. These are: - A Customer Name.

Hi everyone I recently had the need for StringGrid object same as the one that Delphi has. An object that helps show lists of other objects in a simple grid. I searched the news groups and found none, so, I wrote one and decided to share it with you. It's a very simple one with few functions. I derived a DataGrid and added to it a DataTable to hold the data. The object itself is handling the synchronization between them, because...

I'm completely new to using background threading, though I have downloaded and run through several samples and understood how they worked. My question is: I have an app whose primary form will almost always lead to the user opening a certain child window that's fairly resource intensive to load. Is it possible to load this form in a backgroundworker and then use the Show method and hide method as necessary? Anyone know of

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

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,...
