Code:
private void MainFrm_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
                         
            string[] argus = System.Environment.GetCommandLineArgs();
            if(argus.Length>1)
                OpenMenu(argus[1]);
        }
,and it works fine but one problem

"D:\MyData~1\MyMain~1.pfb"

Default How to convert short (8.3) name to long name format

Hello,

You are getting the short (8.3) name format back from windows. It is more than just a quick change to your code to convert the short name to a long name. I found this link by searching for "convert 8.3 file .Net C#"

Hope this helps,

Evan

Cool Difficult or Hard to Read Sections

Hello All,

I've read up to page 495 of Professional C# and .Net 4.0 over the last week. I will finish reading the book because I am learning the material.

I've found some sections to be difficult to read. Upto this point in the book the material has been very straight forward. Once I re-read the poorly written sections a few times, I was able to get the concepts and details. My gut feeling was the book was rushed to print without enough editing.

I did not keep up with the sections that were poorly written. But, today at lunch, I tripped over some very un-natural English. For example a sentence from page 493:

"The method TakesAWhile() needs at least the number of milliseconds passed with the second argument to finish because of the Thread.Sleep() method:"

"at least the number of milliseconds" - what is the range? What is the most it can take?

"number of milliseconds with the second argument" - Ok. <pause for dramatic effect> The second parameter in the function TakesAWhile() is named "ms". "ms" is short for milliseconds. So does this mean the function takes two arguments representing milliseconds? Nope. Looking at the code it is clear the method takes two parameters one being a counter, one being milliseconds.

As I said before, I'll finish the 1000 pages remaining because I am learning. I can see where people would be put off by the sections that are not well written.
