Viewing Code :
For a better code viewing option,
In your UserProfile in Look and Layout Preferences set the theme to Mercury.


Copy and Paste code :
With code posts that use the new colored formatting ;
ie
Code - C#: [Select]
  1.                foreach (MText mtxt in mtextToFix)
  2.                {
  3.                    mtxt.Contents = mtxt.Text;
  4.                }
  5.  

If you use IE9, the best way to copy the code to the clipboard is to select 'Quote' at the top Right of the post
and then clip the code from the post editor.
( Cancel or hit the Page-Back button when done )

FireFox and Chrome will copy the code without the line numbers and retaining the whitespace formatting

Note :
Some of these references are getting a little old. If you find any that are more current please add them to this thread :)

Regards
Kerry

This should probably be a sticky.

Just in case you missed it - http://stackoverflow.com/ has over 900,000 programming questions and answers ... so far. Lots of .NET, not so much AutoCAD.

I've been using stackoverflow a bit myself recently.
Can't quite make up my mind about the member evaluation system there, but they sure do handle a lot of questions each day ... and with pretty good manners 
 :-)

Thanks for the post, and welcome to theSwamp

ps:
good to see a another fellow countryman  8-)

C# Fundamentals: Development for Absolute Beginners

A newly collated 24 episode series on Channel 9 at MSDN.

http://channel9.msdn.com/Series/C-Sharp-Fundamentals-Development-for-Absolute-Beginners#tab_sortBy_sequential

I haven't seen the videos but they seem to be presented by Bob Tabor who's work I am familiar with at www.LearnVisualStudio.net  .

Should be great for a refresher course as well as for Beginners.

Regards

Addendum to previous post.

DO NOT view the lesson by clicking the piccy ( the default resolution is a little crappy)

Select either
High Quality WMV (PC, Xbox, MCE)
or
High Quality MP4

or better yet, download  the WMV


enjoy
