Re: New scam (to me)

Yes Dean, GREED brings you into troubles, but CURIOSITY makes you you peek at the wrong place. In Spanish we say "se juntan el hambre con las ganas de comer".

Re: Blanking the retrace - Analog scope

Hola Robert, Since it says TTL levels I dared to apply 0V and +5V. Just five minutes ago found the manual: between the Z input and the control grid there are lot of transistors. The whole is closely linked with the Intensity panel control. Would you say that the input transistor would not complain i...

Blanking the retrace - Analog scope

I managed to show on my scope a symbol formed by several dots by controlling voltages at the X-Y axis. To make it neat I would need to blank the retrace between dots. My scope is an old analog TRIO 10 MHz CS1562A. Couldn't find the manual but a PDF version found in the Web says that "modulation" may...

Re: Liquidating My Electronics Hobby

Hola Dean, Long time I do not read anything from you. A pity you are facing such a decision which is rounding my head also. Please note, that Elektor magazine people at Holland when they moved, few years ago, gave away the whole library in real paper. Except someone trying to retain one or two manua...

How I see it

atferrari, I completely agree that you aren't technically in violation of your user agreements with either CC or N&V when you cross-post the same message between sites. As a matter of etiquette, however, it is generally uncouth to post identical messages in multiple forums. I think you probably did...

Posting the same question in several forums

As a member of several forums I have the right to post in each one of them whatever I deem convenient as long I do not go against their regulations. I did in the past in much more forums that you could imagine an I will do it again if I find it convenient. As a joke I cannot understand it. If you ar...

Started to grasp it!

Hola Kurtz, Definitely now I understand: I need to instantiate the class before anything. As it is, the class is just a model ("blueprint", says Microsoft). In my mind I was trying to instantiate a method (?!) :sad: but rereading yours all started to make sense. I am not playing the macho man but th...

Few questions, Kurt

Hola Kurtz, Thanks to your code (and with no background in any modern language), I learnt about subscriber and handler for events but there are few things I could not grasp yet: a) Tried to change the name of the method public Program() but the compiler complains. Why should I keep the same name as ...

Starting to grasp the concept.

Hola Kurt,

I just tested it and, of course, it works.

It is late now and I face a busy week ahead. As soon as I can I will revert with eventual more questions.

I need getting used to the structure of C# yet!

Gracias for replying and Happy New Year!

C# - Delays using Console

C# - Using Console.

I need to implement delays between actions.

They should happen once or be asigned to repetitive actions.

I identified Threading.Timer and Timers.Timer already but I can not find how they should be used.

Could anyone explain how, showing a sample of code?

Gracias.

C# handling properties

C# language

I understand the basics of handling properties from classes declared by yourself using {get, set}.

I would like to know how to handle properties of classes already declared by C#, i.e. System.Console.Foreground.

Could anyone help with an example or two?

Gracias
