I received the following question a few days ago:
“I am trying to use three tables from the same dataset in one form that I am creating in vs.net winforms my problem I guess is the setup of it as I can get them all on the form but cant get them to all post to the separate tables when I click save I am using a mysql database with the Mysql connector not the obdc can this even be done?”
Frustrating, isn’t it? .NET makes some things SO easy, and then when it isn’t you figure you must have done something wrong.
The good news is, your problem probably has nothing to do with using mySQL–it is all in how you are using the database stuff in WinForms.
Jeff Atwood of Coding Horror writes:
“I find it difficult to believe, but the reports keep pouring in via Twitter and email: many candidates who show up for programming job interviews can’t program. At all.”
Jeff, you must not have visited a college campus recently. The reason most that most “programmers” can’t program is because their instructors led them to believe they could program.
I have two stories that illustrate the point.
I thought about calling this Session Object Madness, but it really isn’t that crazy once you think through what’s happening.
Here’s the issue. I have a client who does work for another client who is hosting their sites at IBM.
I’m told that IBM will not enable any session servers so none of the sites can include session objects. And that’s where the fun begins.
Got this question this morning from the “Ask A Question” form.
“How do I make a change in an existing DotNetNuke module? I want to add new fields to the feedback form.”
I’m assuming the question is about making changes to the module without touching the source code.
