Generic questions about Visual Studio 2005

P: n/a
1. What is System.Windows.Forms.VisualStyles.TextMetricsChara cterSet
good for?

2. Are the Indic scripts supported?
Are all supported scripts fully supported? (for printing and fine
measuring)
Is the printing done by GDI++ without using Unicribe?

3. Is the Text.Encoder/Decoder provided by the OS or by the Framework?

4. Is dragdrop managed?
If yes, is it possible to drag only the selected text in controls
that allow users to input text?

5. Could you reference a link about
GetDelegateForFunctionPointer/GetFunctionPointerForDelegate?
Is it possible to load a dll defined at runtime and call it's functions?
If yes, how to declare the functions?

6. Can copy a buffer (byte array) to a string or structure?

7. Are the fixed len strings and arrays supported?
If yes, does the structures use a simple fixed len declaration?

8. Is Union defined for the CLR?

9. Is the TabPage selection area in the TabControl treated as the
TabControl or a TabPage?
(I mean: for events related to DragDrop, ...)

10. Is the TextBox and ComboBox's TextBox part fixed? No more on focus
select all?

11. Could you reference a link about
ObfuscateAssemblyAttribute/ObfuscationAttribute ...?
Does the MSIL compiler keep the original symbols in the exe and dll?
If yes I suggest you to change it to reduce the effects of reverse
engineering.
Keep the exported symbols only and change the others to a serial name.
(please note that not all Public symbols are exported.)

12. Is it possible to create a SINGLE project using classes written in
different languages (VB,C#,C)?
If yes, is it possible to mix languages in the same class?

13. Is it possible to use inline asm in VB and C#?

14. Why doesn't Microsoft.VisualBasic.Conversion.Bin exist?

15. Will the Visual Studio .NET help look like the MSDN Library?
(I mean: with clear explanations and some small code samles all
toghether in the same page)

16. When will Visual Studio 2005 be released?
Do I need to buy a new OS to use it?

TIA

Victor,
You may get quicker & more specific answers if you ask "down the hall" in
one of the Whidbey (Visual Studio 2005) newsgroups:

http://communities.microsoft.com/new...idbey&slcid=us

Page down on the intro on how to configure Outlook Express or your other
favorite newsgroup to use them.
3. Is the Text.Encoder/Decoder provided by the OS or by the Framework? The framework, as they are in the System.Text namespace.

However I believe they use P/Invoke to call into the OS. Which happens to be
an implementation detail, as I'm sure you are aware implementation details
can change.
4. Is dragdrop managed? Yes since VS 2002, look at the DragDrop methods of
System.Windows.Forms.Control.
6. Can copy a buffer (byte array) to a string or structure? Yes since VS 2002, look at the System.Text.Encoding class on how to convert
a byte array to & from a String.
7. Are the fixed len strings and arrays supported? Arrays by definition are fixed length. Strings by definition are not.

Again I would ask the VS 2005 specific questions in the VS 2005 newsgroups.

Also it might help if you made 16 posts with better explainations of what
you are asking.

Hope this helps
Jay

Yes since VS 2002, look at the DragDrop methods of
System.Windows.Forms.Control.


Those questions are not intended to be answered by high school students,
even if their QI is above 100.
The only exception is the last question, 16.

I give you an advice, don't connect to sites that requires your computer
to become vunerable.

Definition of site that requires vunerable access:
A site that requires making it a trustable site, enabling cookies, java
and other scripts.

When you connect to this kind of site, soon or later your computer will
be hacked.
I hope that you understand this, if you don't understand ask your
teacher about that.
Thanks for your reply anyway

To be sure is better to unplug your computer.

Just my thought,

I have never been hacked and I will never be hacked, but I allow
cookies and scripting. It's just about what websites you are visiting.
