    Status Report - May 23, 2002


    Howdy everyone, I'm pretty exhausted - looking forward to the long weekend
    here in the States. <g>



    I just wanted to thank those of you who responded to my query last week
    about difficult scenarios with Winform apps. For this week, why don't we
    look at data access? Let me know what you think! To keep it interesting and
    allow for feedback, please post your messages here online so others can see
    them.





    The highlights for the week:


    1. Coding continues on the new VB community website on GotDotNet. Current
    target is still mid-June. I really hope that it becomes a place where people
    can get information about all the great things going on around VB .NET. The
    basic idea is to have a great place to announce what's available on all
    sites - not just on GotDotNet.



    2. Lots of work on getting people online and more user group support. Had a
    few nice messages come in this week thanking a few of the QA people who've
    been getting online.



    3. Work on the next version of VB .NET



    4. Continuing planning for the next set of chats (starting on July now) - if
    you have any topics you'd like covered, let me know! This week's chat went
    really well, and included a ton of questions and answers on working with
    data. The transcript should be online in the next week or so.

    White Papers
    Writing Error Messages for Security Features
    Good error messages give a notification that a problem occurred, an
    explanation of why the problem occurred, and a solution so that the user can
    fix the problem. Good error message text is specific, user-centered, clear,
    consistent, and courteous. Writing good error messages is hard work, but it
    is something that must be done right. This document offers essential
    information for writing, presenting, and testing security-related messages.

    Developing Custom Windows Controls Using Visual Basic .NET
    One of the biggest selling points of Microsoft® Visual Basic® has always
    been its support for components, allowing third parties to develop visual
    controls (and eventually, non-visual components) that provided new
    functionality to the Visual Basic developer. This article provides an
    overview of associated sample articles illustrating the basic concepts of
    Microsoft Windows control development through both discussion and code
    snippets.

    Did people respond to you privately or in another newsgroup? I didn't see
    any responses here and am interested in what the issues were/are?

    I post this to a number of newsgroups and websites. Responses vary. Since
    moving this to the vb.announcements section on Devx, I've never gotten a
    response, FWIW. It moved due to the request of the members...

    As far as your other question about what I'm working on for the next
    version - as soon as I can talk about it, I will. In the meantime I do want
    to cover what I'm spending my time on.

    the Net is a big place...

    Hi Alan --

    Actually, you were asked to move it to a *relevant* announcement group, not this one
    specifically, if I recall. There is a dotnet.announcements group on this server, and
    it's hard to see how any other group could be more relevant. If you're interested in
    getting your message to those who may care, you might rethink what group to target.

    Later... Karl

    Thanks. Actually, the moving happened while I was out of the country, and
    this is where I was told was appropriate. I'll check out the other place.
    Thanks!

    I guess it should be posted to both annoucements groups then. This is VB,
    so it clearly applies, and the other is for general dotnet information so
    that's good too!

    Exactly! I'm pretty sure that's what he intended when he wrote "Coding
    continues on the new VB community website on GotDotNet." :-)

    Now what's *that* got to do with VB, hmmmmm??? ;-)

    Oh wait! I get it. It's some sort of 12-step thing, right? A place for recovering
    addicts to congregate and mourn their loss?

    Nah, I think you've mixed it up with going through the grieving process.
    This is what you were thinking of:

    http://www.nfda.org/resources/grief/1998/mourning.html


    I think this might be particularly helpful:

    "VI. Don't be the "Lone Ranger". Bereavement is an isolating experience.
    Loneliness becomes acute because your beloved partner has died. Do not
    complicate bereavement by becoming the "Lone Ranger". Instead, reach out
    to trusted family and friends."
    ^^^^^^^^^^^

    I feel your pain, really.
