Set default settings for new users
I don't know if this is even possible, but here goes.
I have about 5 users for our desktop computer, 1 adult, 3 kids and me
(I don't count as an adult :P).
There are some settings I want to have each of the environments default
to, where they can then change them as they wish on their own.
Instead of setting them one-at-a-time, is there a way to modify the
settings on the template of what goes into a user's /home directory when
they are created?

some pages (I supose becouse of MS HTML non compatible isues). If IE

problems, but I would...Set LoadingText property without setting PromptText
Is it possible to set the LoadingText property without setting a PromptText property? When I try to do this, it leaves my control disabled, albeit populated. How can I fix this? Or am I overlooking something?
Seems to be an issue. One option is to have defaults for those properties; the control should not be disabled and you should be able to choose a value. On the demo page it selects the first value of the car if Prompt text is not specified and cascades the choices so that you see the corresponding choices in the next drop down but when you hit submit it says you need to select a make.
...Settings Spec Update: Personalization and Settings List
A couple of minor/housekeeping updates to the Settings App.
1. Settings List
- I just made sure the list was up-to-date with changes that have been
made / are occurring in other documents.
- Patryk: check out new categories which we may need icons for: Display,
Accessibility, Privacy Rights (I can explain what this is directly...
it's a new page that Legal is putting together and I'll have UI for soon)
2. Personalization Settings

I call the following function in my application, but it does not seem to
take effect in the program until I exit and execute the program again. The
change however is done when viewing it in Windows environment variables. But
not instantly in the program. How do I fix this?

Settings.Design.cs file defaultInstance returns the localhost url instead of remote machine url. The webservice is hosted in remote machine so that the defaultinstance should be returns remote machine url but instead of it returns localhost url. The solution caches the settings somewhere in the physical path? Please anyone know the solution let me know. Thanks.
The Settings.designer.cs file is the automatically-generated settings that you edit in the Settings.settings file.
You should edit the value using the settings editor, not in the .cs file. To do that, double-click on the settings.s...Set International Settings

Summary: "confirm cookie settings" default setting.
in the "confirm cookie setting" box, how do you set this to default to
"deny" the cookie so that typing will not "allow" a cookie by accident
but will deny it by default.

The question comes up because even in the support 'database'
(http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Configure_openSSH#Limit_by_Hosts) it is
advised to set AllowRootLogin to NO. So.....why it is set to yes as
default (which is then insecure if I well understood). And why is ssh
not deactivated by default, so user have to opt in, if they do not use
it, it is already set to save defaults. The same is for X11 forwarding
that I would have expected be on default to no. Is there a logic that
escapes me? Thank you. I would like also to restrikt the usage of "su"
as mentioned in the s...Set 2 variables equil without setting reference
Hello. I have 2 instances of a class object. One holds the data retreived from the database (it's a silverlight project) and the other holds the updated information as the user enters data into the form. The problem I'm experiencing is when I update the hold variable, with the fresh data, the variables are setting instance equality instead of just updating the variables. Is there some way that I can set class object value equality at a highlevel such as obj1 = obj2 or do I have to go into each elemental level such as obj1.person.name = obj2.person.name?
It's pretty annoying having to setup the Mail Profile every time the user
logs into the system.
Is there a way to set these values up in the opening script of an
application without prompting the Profile Manager. These values are all held
within our user tables.
We're not interested in setting up permanent users accounts at this stage.
PS. A normal user wouldn't have a clue what the server address is.
