in reply to Passing Parameters Help!

Two suggestions for you (givin these after spending 20 odd mins debugging you code)
1- Always be precise with your question, if you want proper attention towards your problem.
2- Open an user account believe me,it will do good for you. And its free !!! :)
Atleast follow the first one and come back, people will help you certaily. cheers :)

    I just dont know how such simple question can turn in such a sour answers

      It's not that the answers are sour. The question (at least from first glance) looks like:


      Terse ambiguous question


      Hideously long code and/or poorly formatted|organized code example

      It simply appears (at first glance) like you're not willing to do a little work to make it easy for the PMs to help you. The responses you got, rather than being sour, are simply bored pleas to the effect of Help me to help you with a little helpful advice tossed in for good measure. At least you had code with your question--too many petitioners don't even bother with that.

      If I see a question like this, I ignore it an move on to the next one unless:

    • It looks particularly interesting
    • It looks like I could learn something fun from it
    • I'm bored and have time to kill
    • Even in those cases, my reply with attempted solution would include admonishments to clarify the question, clarify|simplify the code, &tc.


      You're simple
