Little late getting back, been coding.
Ms. West: As always thank you for your example.
Elroy: Changing the background color may be a simple solution and keep down the clutter -- e.g. Ms....
I'm running VB5 on Win7 with no problem and based on forum posts VB6 works through Win 10.
Search for "install" on one of these OSes and you'll get quite a few hits.
Thanks again Ms. West.
To bad about flash..
Thanks for link to Mr. Peterson's site. He does good work.
Hopefully he's still involved with VB6.
I know he was #$%^& at M$ for deprecating it....
Thanks Ms. West.
FWIW was going by MSDN posted on internet.
Unless I missed it, would be nice if they had stated "Top level Windows Only".
Any API you know of that will "identify" a...
1) Will FlashWindowEx work to flash a control (e.g. textbox, listbox, etc) ?
Thought This flag would work but no go:
2) Will it work "Out of Process"...
A date is actually a double with the following:
double = date <dot> time.
so if you do:
Dim dbl As Double
dbl = CDbl(Now)
and then look at the double you will have the date and time as...
Thanks for all input.
Seemed odd, but "it is what it is".
Have Full Control so no permission issue.
Had tried various flags but NOT combined

I needed to quickly get a list of ".txt" files in a directory so I used this:
strFileName = Dir(Path & "\*.txt")
Interesting the first two files in the directory started with "_"...
Tried your suggestion. Could not get it to work.
Thanks for clearing several things up for me.
Thanks for your input.
"W" supprised me since I'm using VB5.
THANK YOU __ THANK YOU __ THANK YOU.
Had spent the last couple of hours looking for IDC_LIST.
Wasn't aware I could have easily obtained it with "GetDlgCtrlID"
Turns out may be more difficult than initial thoughts.
Want I want to do is allow user to have two associated Apps running.
Instead of having to leave the primary app and click on the listbox...
LB_SETSEL is only for a multiple selection listbox. will try it but have my doubts.
Tried it. Does NOT work for single selection listbox.
Good idea had forgotten...
Using the following I can get the caret (colored line) to move to the correct index.
However, that movement does NOT appear to trigger the listbox-Click event.
Had thought about yanking drive as I have a 2.5 / 3.5 IDE to SATA adapter.
Looking at one of the two old drives (IBM Travelstar - not installed), the connector is NOT IDE on end, kinda...
I need to get some files off an old laptop.
>>> Old Computer <<<<
I've got an old Dell "Latitude CP" laptop that has Windows 98SE on it.
Haven't used in years.
It has a serial port, USB port...
Your in luck. Stumbled across this yesterday.
Thanks a bunch.
You seem to have a great understanding of how Microsoft implemented VB (and other things).
Some of Chen's writings give "some" insight on what M$ did / didn't do. Little on VB...
I was going to start another thread but my question is same Topic.
I want to manually install and register Common Controls in a directory "other than" c:\windows\system32.
The reason for this is...
Appreciate your comments and points of contention.
I don't use it or Appleman frequently, but find it is a great quick reference when needed instead of having to wade through MSDN or...
Installed and have tried running under Window Compability mode but still getting error 50003.
As an aside here is interesting read on how/why Microsoft broke Backward Compatability....
Try going to Planet Source code or writing your own search routine and see it is better.
You said it!
Came up with a simple workaround using a Timer, but Not as smooth as I like..
'Auto Scroll Graph if Outside Client...
Thanks for additional responses.
passel will look at your example in a bit.
FWIW I paint everything directly, no double buffer is used.
Thought this would be pretty straighforward and put...
Thanks for input and confirming approach. Seemed "most" logical.
I have graphics which extent past the visible client area.
To view these graphics I use a horizontal or vertical scrollbar.
Currently my drawing routines (e.g. rubberband line) are limitied to the...
For Early versus Late Binding Search the Forum. Amazing What You'll FInd!

If I understand Correctly

Firefox has disabled the use of the Clipboard.
I've found some Add-Ins but also an interesting article on implementing the Clipboard here:
The WorkbookCount function need to have:
"On Error Resume Next"
as when compiled object Excel has NOT yet been created.
I have a command button on a form that executes Excel and populates Excel from various VB routines.
The App works fine both Compiled and in the IDE without the call from the Command Button.
I'm Not sure were Microsoft is going with this but my guess is "more control".
What ever happened to the KISS method -- and -- with all this "Cloud" push we've almost closed the circle back to the...
Little late to the party but this might work.

Your RIGHT. Found COM3 under Device Mgr - Modem - Properties - Advanced Port Settings.
FWIW: Re Task Scheduler
If it was a virtual port, then guessing it might of been initated through Task...
Found this under TaskScheduler -- any possibility?
Just an old PCI Card Modem I use for Faxing.
Gone over all devices in Device Manager, no "COM3" listed as COM3
si-the-geek: Thanks for respondings.
Had started with Device Manager before post. Not listed.
If virtual, how do I find what's using it or how it is createdt?
I've used two different approaches.
One using the COM API and also a program written by dilettante that uses a API "QueryDosDevice".
Both return that system has COM1 and COM3.
CMOS is configured...
Found and old serial (db25) and parallel loopback I made back in old DOS days in my stash. Had forgot about them.
