Mouser, I have had problems in the past where, if I remote in on a machine with a lower desktop resolution, the icons will end up jumbled on the actual desktop when I log back in at the console. That had me puzzled at first but I figured it out. The only way around it is to use a "Icon position saving" tool and have it restore the position after you RDP in.

Personally, this reminds of when Windows XP first hit the streets and everybody swore up and down that it was a terrible, no-good OS with a horrible "kindergarten GUI". Look at it now, we can't get rid of the friggin OS. I, for one, enjoy the metro start screen (although I boot to desktop). The start screen is actually fairly intuitive and allows me to hide unnecessary clutter caused by menu after menu of new program folders. Heck, I never used the all programs menu in vista/7 with the type to search feature.

I...My wife and I must stand alone as two people who thoroughly enjoys Windows 8.1...

mwb!!!!!! That is exactly what I had before with the exception of the fact of where I had the ++counter set at. I had it at the end of the function (made logical sense to me). Now it works beautifully!

Jibz, thanks for the suggestion as well. Unfortunately, we have to use structured code and not OOP (I love OOP and this is driving me nuts). Plus, each function I add I would have to calculate the Big-O for so I want to minimize my number of functions :)

Thanks again everyone! This is working like a champ!

Coding Snacks / Binary Search Tree help
« on: February 12, 2014, 10:35 PM »
Hello all, let me preface this by saying that YES, this is for a homework assignment. That said, I have already completed 99% of the program and the only thing left is what I am about to ask for help on.

I have a function to display a binary search tree using in-order traversal. The function works fine (as does the rest of the program, but I am having some trouble in limiting the output to 10 numbers per line.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30

The function looks like such

Code: C++ [Select]
  1. void inOrderDisplay(bstNode *nodeToDisplay)
  2. {
  3.         if (nodeToDisplay == NULL) return;
  4.         inOrderDisplay(nodeToDisplay->left);
  5.         cout << setw(6) << right << nodeToDisplay->integer;
  6.         inOrderDisplay(nodeToDisplay->right);  
  7. }

Now, what I am trying to achieve, as said above, is 10 numbers per line followed by a newline, then the next 10 numbers, etc.

I have tried various things like having a static int counter inside of the function, I have tried using a standard local variable, I have tried passing in the counter as a parameter (reference). Once inside, I have attempted to use (if counter == 0), if (counter % 10 == 0), or if (counter > 10).

I am really at a loss here and this is the only thing holding up my submission of this program. How do you go about doing something like this inside of a recursive function?

Thanks in advance :)

The inner nerd in me loves this. I stumbled upon this as I am currently enrolled in my final programming class (Advanced Algorithms) using C++.

Sounds of sorting source

That is long gone, but I can generate a shell batch file, or perhaps skwire might generate a shell autohotkey script for you :) Autohotkey is the more modern way

I love scripting :) I had a menu back in my XP days that had a listing of all of the rundll32 commands I frequently used and let me press 1-40 to launch them :)

That is just a few of them. The sad part is, I have most of these memorized :-/

Rename the attached file to temp.bat instead of temp.bat.txt. Then all you have to do is double click it :)

Make a batch file to call: RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Options_RunDLL 7

OK, I mis-read that then! Thanks for the clarification. I was going to lose it if there was actually an author bold enough to remove access to data unless you pay :)


So, wait, I can invest time into a program but unless I pay yearly, I lose access to any data I've stored in the program? No thanks. I should be able to use, without restriction, the version I purchased, even after expiration. Otherwise, I am simply wasting my money.

Likewise, the computer licensing model seems highly restrictive...Thanks, but no thanks.

I would never trust a "code converter" from one language to another. While, in theory, it may be possible, the sheer number of possibilities that exist when using a certain function would deter me from using a converter.

Too bad the "Free download" also carries with it the requirement to buy three programs rather than just the program I need (which, in theory, should be less than the 49.95 "limited time offer", going to check back on 1 Feb to see about this one and see if it hasn't changed to "28 Feb"). I also despise authors who use the term "free download" on their page.

The home-use program is valid as long as your organization buys into it for employees. MS has offered this for a while and the US Military participates, hence why I have received each of office since 2007 for only 9.95 :)

I've heard rumors that mouser's cat uses the treadmill more than mouser does...just a rumor thou...

I have program folders? I am so used to not even opening the "All programs" menu since Windows 7 that I have simply forgotten just how cluttered it actually is. One of the best features ever introduced by Microsoft was the built in search function that is actually even nicer in Wiindows 8/8.1.

That said, I now read that you are using XP. The best bet at this point is to use folders. I created folders like "Utilities", "System", "Multimedia", "Internet", "Office", "Games" and then moved each program folder under the appropriate category. Free, worked well, and was functional.

Every rule in the video sounds exactly like things I've been doing for years now

I absolutely love this tool!!! As a television show enthusiast, this will come in very handy!

The only thing I could see this needing is a "minimize to tray" or "startup in tray" option with bubble notifications, along with a way to view "recent" episodes as well as scroll ahead in upcoming episodes.
