    But with the Desktop, its a completly diferent ball game...

    I downloaded your reminder prg and really like it. On line 28 (Control"DateTimePicker2")2.Format = 8) the 2 doesn't
    belong. Line 113 you have select case j, case shouldn't be there. Line 118
    Case Is > 1, it gave an error with is in there so took it out. Line 131 Case Is <= 0, same thing as line 118. And lastly it will compile with optimized turned off but not with it on, something about key already added in dictionary
    checkbox key trying to add checkbox. I'm not sure how to solve that one so I compiled without optimized.

    yes, line 28 was a typo but it got through the earlier compilers - as did the issues with Case which was altered in version 6 to match the compiled version which uses the C# Case structure. I hadn't recompiled it with the newer compilers so I hadn't updated the source.

    You need the updated ControlsExDesktop library to avoid the nameclash in optimised compile and I have updated the original reminder post with a new zip with the modified source and new libraries that DOES now compile optimised.

    Thanks for pointing this out.

    I thank you, you are a good person to learn from, you and others on this forum. It's an easy to get along with community.

    @edit: It still doesn't want to compile opitmized, windows xp pro kicks it out and wants to send error report. :sign0148:

    I don't understand that. I have just taken the zip file I uploaded, unzipped it to an empty folder and it compiles optimised and runs fine under XP on my EEE PC laptop and under Vista on my desktop. Is there any error message?

    I'm sorry agraham, it was my fault. When I compiled the program it compiled fine, the mistake I made was I copied the exe to the folder that my desktop icon referenced and forgot to copy the new dll's with it so it was trying to use the old dll's. I am very sorry that I put you through this a secound time.
    My deepest apology.

    edit: I didn't explain post #6 quite right. It did compile ok.
