without borders   


If you have a table with some rows and columns, and set the background color on the <tr>´s like this:

table.mytable tr

Then you can see the lines that seperates the <tr>´s and <td>´s. Its like the borders that define the tablestructure still has its original color (or is transparent). And it looks quite ugly. How do you avoid this? Is there a way in CSS to make these borders 0 pixels wide?

I know that I can just put the background color on the table instead, but that is not a possible solution in my case.

Thanks alot :)

    background: #b6b7bc;
    font-size: .80em;
    font-family: "Helvetica Neue", "Lucida Grande", "Segoe UI", Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, sans-serif;

    padding: 0px;

Visual Studio: Microsoft should simplify producing quality software

I am looking at features of different versions of Visual Studio and I less and less understand how and why is the quality of software handled as fun of few seasoned professionals. Although Visual Studio is best development platform I have ever seen I really don't understand why Microsoft hates people who want to provide quality to their customers. Usually n00bs and start-ups start with minimum versions to get their work done. Many of them start with some version of Visual Studio Express or cheapest one of the full versions. These products have this far caused me hell load of problems because specially n00bs have no way how to control or measure the quality of their work. n00bs make also a lot of stupid mistakes and they need some way to rollback those mistakes. And don't forget how many other mistakes n00bs can make. Now let's put it all together and see how hard is for n00bs to get started their professional life on Visual Studio. No advanced debugging - there is IntelliTrace but not for guys who need it at first years almost every day. They have to waste their and their seniors time to get mysteries solved. I need IntelliTrace rarely because usually stack trace of Exception is enough for me. But I have seen n00bs who try to debug their applications using only message part of exceptions. IntelliTrace is only available with Visual Studio Ultimate. No versioning suppor

IShellItemImageFactory producing the Folderimage with black background

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

I am using VB.Net 2005.

I am using the IShellItemImageFactory interface to extract the thumbnail of the file.

This interface is extracting the icons of files and folders properly.

The problem comes when in following case.

If I gives the folder path to extract the Folder's Image, the interface is producing the folder's shell image as like in explorer but with the black background.

Can anyone tell me that why it is happening?

How can I remove this black background and make the transparent image?

I din't want to use the function "MakeTransparent" function of bitmap.

Hope my question is in proper forum.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Alternating row background for first column of a report


is there a way to make the first column of a report use the an alternating background color? 

I have the background color set for the entire row however it does not work for the first column if the color is set to an expression.  If I just set it to a color i.e. red it works just fine. If I insert a dummy column to the left it works just fine (but the dummy column does not work, presumably because it is first??).

In the file below only the textbox for part number does not show an alternating background.  All others work correctly.

Advanced Basics: Scaling Up: The Very Busy Background Compiler


One of the features that distinguishes Visual Basic® from the other languages in Visual Studio® is its use of a background compiler (BC). The BC runs from the moment you start up a Visual Basic project until the time you close the last one down.

BITS: Write Auto-Updating Apps with .NET and the Background Intelligent Transfer Service API


Both the .NET Framework and Windows have some very interesting APIs for creating applications that are capable of updating themselves automatically over a network. There are many advantages to writing your application to update itself like Windows Update does, including convenience for your users, from easier maintenance to network administration. Automatic updates require attention to factors such as discovery, security, and file replacement. In this article, the author covers the BITS API as well as a number of features of the .NET Framework that take care of these facets of auto-updating using the same facilities that the Windows Update uses.

Setting webpage/masterpage background...image?


I want to have the background of my masterpage (the master page for all of my .aspx pages) have a sort of gradient.  I imagine the only way I can do that is with an image.  Or maybe even some other design, but I want to move away from the "solid color" background.

Is the easiest way to do this just to make an image and set that as the background?  What image size should I make it, because some users could possibly have the normal aspect ratio, or maybe a widescreen?  What should I make it like so that it looks good on all computers?

Thanks in advance. :)

Is it possible to change the title bar background and the font style on default template?



Is there any way to change the default top link /title bar picture and the fonts of the title without breaking anything in the layout/structure?

I have changed the theme to Obsedian and I would also like to change the picture of the title bar of this theme and also the font/style of the title, top link bar, menus..etc. Is there a way to do this?

Please note: I am using WSS 3.0 and I am not the Administrator of the sharepoint. I am only the site admin of some sites on this sharepoint. I can do some basic customization using SPD.

Basically, what I am trying to do is that I want to set up a sharepoint site, however I want to make it NOT look like a sharepoint site.Well I know this is possible, but for my case it might be just partially possible due to the limitation that I am not the Site collection admin and hence I do not have direct access to the server itself.

What I want is to hide most of the sharepoint links/menus/bars, etc and use my own buttons/hyperlinks etc .. for user to navigate on the sites.

Thanks in advance for your help/advices.
