    Re: Calling .net form VB6

    What do you plan to use from System.Drawing especially?

    I ask, because the Vb6-community has an extremely powerful Vector-Graphics
    (and PixelSurface) Drawing-tool available with the COM-wrapper...

    Re: C pointers in VB

    A VariableName is what one calls "a symbol" (in compiler-speak).
    And those (string-based) symbols represent easier to read "allocations of memory".

    Nah - typically it's more like 1.8GB (from the theoretical 2GB) we have available with VB6-Apps,
    until the VB-Mem-allocator starts choking on larger (or already midsized) allocations.

  21. Re: [RESOLVED] Sending a Null argument to function

    Leaving the Split("") - or Split(vbNullString) - out of the function, will cause a differently
