You've been asking vague questions before and some of us have asked you to be clearer with your questions. Don't go mad when people don't understand what you're asking, especially not if you are giving the impression you don't want to do the work yourself but rather copy and past from somebody else.

With this attitude you'll find that you quickly won't get any replies at all. When that happens, don't blame us for not being friendly, but blame yourself. Also, consider posting a follow up when somebody takes the time to help you. I quickly browsed over your last posts and on almost none of the replies you posted back. A quick "thanks, it's working" or a "I don't understand how this helps me" or "that got me in the right direction" is always appreciated. Yours is not the best attitude to have when you *ask other people to help you*. I, for one, almost have had it with you.

Hear, hear. Well said Imar.

You think my goal here is to find things that are wrong in people's posts? Come on, get real. And BTW, calling somebody who is helping you pathetic *is* very wrong, IMO.

I am trying to *help you* by telling you how to ask better questions. By asking better questions, you get better answers. By getting better answers, you become a better programmer. By becoming a better programmer, you can help others out here on p2p.wrox.com. It's as simple as that. If you don't understand or appreciate that, I don't know what will.....

you tell him Imar.

i hate helping people (and in some cases doing the work for them hoping they will take the time to study it and understand it) and not get a thank you or some kind of acknowledgement that it does or does not work for them. dotNetDeveloper should reread his first few post on this thread and ask himself what impression he is giving. It actually made me a little frustrated when i read this and saw how disrespectful it is.

i mean even i ask dparsons stupid questions all the time but i say thank you and let him know if it works or not.

i just got off work. currently i work at mcDonald's and since im the cashier i have to take all this rudeness all day. i get yelled at for things that arent even my fault. such as asking '"what kind of happy meal do you want"... "is this for here or to go" ... "sorry ma'am, we are out of cup carriers"

NOW, im off the clock and its a DIFFERENT ball game!

who seems more pathetic at this point, someone trying to help you(no offense to you buddy), or the guy that cant just type these questions on google and get out of our faces(yes you, dotNetLazy###)

you dont need an article to know how to write a small script. you need logic and inspiration. when i made an instant messenger i never said "how should i start this?" ... "should i start off with a blank winform?" or when i made my own myspace-type site... i used a book for a lot of it. i also used these forums a bit too. but many of my posts (im sure not all of them, like yours) have code associated with it along with helpful answers and thanks-you's.

right now you are just leaving #-you's. do you really think people a few weeks from now will read your crap and say "huh i should help him"


if you want a helpful response, understand what this forum is used for.

1st forum Post:
Code:
 
<question about your coding issue as it relates to the forum you are posting in>

Just as violence only begets more violence, so to does name calling. Iceman while I understand where you are coming from, it is not necessary to refer to the poster as dotNetLazy. While what you are saying, more or less echos what everyone has said here, you should apply a little more tact in doing so.

dotnetDeveloper, as Imar said, you have the wrong attitude. Flaming people, or otherwise disrespecting people who are *trying* to help you is the fastest way to get zero help on anything you have questions about. I for one am not here to do anyone's work for them, give them a neat little packaged solution (the wheel as you called it), or anything else like that (unless of course you are looking to HIRE me or someone else to do the work). Advice is always free and that is what I peddle around the forums.

To summarize all the answers that have come before this post What you are trying to do, for the most part, is simplistic. You need to handle, without putting much thought into it, the DataBound event of the gridview to grab the data for the first record and populate the textboxes. You then need to provide some mechnaisim to the user to select a given row in your GridView that will then populate said data up to your text boxes. I would take Gonzalo's advice and implement some sort of AJAX call so that you are not constantly updating the UI. When you have something tangible (read:code) that you need help with please feel free to post it.

i agree with you doug,

it was kind of juvenille to go to name calling. I doubt i would have sank that low if i wasnt in that mood i was in. But still thats no excuse.
