Quick tip on how to get code working :)

Aug 9, 2013 at 11:19 PM
1) Beat your head against the wall trying to get some code to work
2) Scour the internet for tips/hints/etc.
3) Search this group for help
4) Give up and write up a message for help
5) Take the time to make sure you include all the code specific to the problem (and only that code) so it is really easy for Markus to figure out what stupid little thing you left out/did wrong.
6) Do a quick test to make sure that what you are sending is correct
7) See that the examples you sent actually works (WTF???)
8) Go back to your original code and figure out what you did to get the example to work even though your code does not.
9) Repeat until the code suddenly works... (Yay!)

And now the tricky part - try to remember to make a note of what it was that made it all work so that next time, you don't have to go through the pain for this particular situation...

Take care,
