Open a new case

Title of case
Try to clearly summarize your case. For example: "Obama campaign logo", or "1950s retro script".

Sample image
Hint: The best sample images are ones which show the unique features of a font. For example: if a font's R if unlike any other R from any other font, it is very helpful to see that R for identification purposes.

Optional message
The more you can tell about your sample, the easier it can be identified. For example: knowing a sample came from a magazine published in the 1940s makes it much easier to rule out certain possibilities

Already tried a few of these but the letters are joined too much for them to work :(

I will try the databinding although never really been able to work with it properly lol

As for wpf I will have to look into it :)

Thanks for the reply's got a fair idea of how to do this and make it smooth and look good :)

Well not literally 1000 but it has no limit on the amount... I would say generally about 20-30 controls... I will look into threading though.


Header is not a problem since it is just the Header and doesn't really load any info

Info loads info from 1 row and about 5 columns from MySql for each (2 picture boxes, 3 linklabels, 3 labels)

Developer's Corner / Adding controls smoothly...
« on: August 28, 2012, 08:31 AM »
Okay so I am writing a program that has to load a lot of information from MySql then add it to controls.

Get Data > Fill Control > Display Control

Only problem is I could be loading as few as 4 controls or as many as 1000. Is there a better way I can add everything? It works for now but is not pleasant to watch and would defiantly not be good for a consumer to see. I have tried loading the controls before the form is loaded but that didn't work so well, also tried Control.SuspendLayout(); and Control.ResumeLayout(); Still no good.

If anyone has any ideas I will be will to try anything to get this working 100%

Many thanks

*Edit* Forgot to mention I am programming on C#

@Stoic Joker - I am defining the database when the program loads. Also I am not getting either MessageBox

I will try and use the MySql connector/NET and see if that helps at all :)

Will keep you up to date on how its going and if I need a hand

Cheers guys helped quite alot


Found out the dll keeps a constant connection so the message boxes wouldn't show up.

public bool Checks()
            MySqlConnection Conn = MySqlSettings.GetConnection(); Conn.Open();
            bool exist = false;
            string user = Username_Text.Text;
            string userpass = Password_Text.Text;

                lock (Conn)
                    MySqlCommand Cmd = new MySqlCommand("SELECT * FROM `users` WHERE Username='" + user + "' AND Password='" + userpass + "'", Conn);
                    MySqlDataReader DR = Cmd.ExecuteReader();
                    while (DR.Read())
                        string userpass1;
                        string user1;

                        userpass1 = (DR["Password"].ToString());
                        user1 = (DR["Username"].ToString());

                        if (user == user1 && userpass == userpass1)
                            exist = true;
            catch (Exception)
                return true;
            if (exist == true)
                MessageBox.Show("Logged in");
                MessageBox.Show("Username or Password is wrong\nPlease try again");

            return exist;

Now it works like a dream as long as I don't use the dll

Cheers for the help guys

I am not getting any errors it just wont read anything from the database... so far I have Username and Password fields in the MySql database I have tried using a connection string instead of this dll but failed miserably while trying to select Username as row and get the password from the same row...

Sorry for the erratic way I have written stuff I am not very good at explaining things lol (just ask Stephen)

downloaded from It come in a source that I was working on and can't find the source code for it or the download link...

I  know I only have one post but I can assure you that the DLL is what I say it is... a dll nothing else nothing more.

I will keep looking for the download I got it from and will post it if I can find it...

Hey guys, dont know if this is the right place but I will post here anyway...

I am writing a program and I am having some issues with selecting the MySql data using C#.

private void Checks()
            string UN = Username_Text.Text;
            string Pass = Password_Text.Text;

            MySqlCommand cmd = new MySqlCommand(MySqlCommandType.SELECT);


                cmd.Select("users").Where("Username", UN);
                MySqlReader r = new MySqlReader(cmd);

                while (r.Read()) // Breakpoint added here shows that the program is reading up to this point but does not read anything below this line until the return;
                    string RealPassword = r.ReadString("Password");
                    string RealUsername = r.ReadString("Username");
                    if (RealUsername == UN && RealPassword == Pass)
            catch (Exception Exc) { MessageBox.Show(Exc.ToString()); }

Anyone can help me with this? Its a simple login script but I just cant get my head around it and need a fresh pair of eyes

Thanks in advance


My MySql DLL is attached
