    That's a heck of a lot of code to ask us to go through. I suggest:
    1) please surround your posted code with code tags:
    [code]

    // ... your code goes here

    [/code]

    This way your code will retain its formatting and be more readable.

    2) Please isolate for us the code of interest so that we don't have to go through a ton of unrelated code. Please remember that we're volunteers doing this on our free time.

    I have before been hesitant to post all this code online. I posted then what I judged to be the more relavant parts of it in other forums and was told I needed to post the entire source code in order to make the job of the volunteers easier. Now you tell me to do the opposite. So I am not sure how to proceed... I have left out some of it.

    Your best bit is to:
    • First and foremost, always use the formatting tools of whatever forum you're posting your code on so that the code retains its formatting. Different forums use different tools, and so it is a good idea to check out the forum's FAQ to see how to do it. I in fact show you how in my first post, and I urge you again to edit your original post here and add code tags.
    • Your other point is well taken as there's an art to asking a question in a forum, and it can be hard to know what is too much or too little code to post. You want to post enough code so that your question can be answered but not too much code so as to overwhelm the volunteers that help on the site.
    • Your best bet in fact is to write a new small program that compiles, runs, that illustrates your problem and that has no code unrelated to compiling, running, and illustrating the problem, a Short, Self Contained, Correct Example, or SSCCE.
    • In addition, it is sometimes a good idea to repost a small portion of your displayed code, that which you believe has the greatest likelihood of causing your problem, and then describing this section of code in detail so that we can understand it well.

    OK, I am going to work further on it and repost if need be. Thank you kindly for taking the time to clarify things for me.
