  1. Re: Compare string1 to string2 and identify differences

    clsStrToIntArray.cls would be perfect for this kind of task. If you'll provide more details about your current code, it would be easier to show an example.
  2. Re: Positioning a form right above the taskbar, but in the right corner?

    Exactly. And that's the reason I offered "a more robust alternative".

  3. Re: Positioning a form right above the taskbar, but in the right corner?

    In the OP's previous thread, SPI_GETWORKAREA was already deemed unsuitable because the OP appears to be using more than 1 monitors.
  4. Re: Positioning a form right above the taskbar, but in the right corner?

    You only needed to modify a single line in that earlier code in order to achieve what you want. You'll have to change this:

    X = (MI.rcMonitor.Right - MI.rcMonitor.Left - nWidth) \ 2&

    to this:...

    I think there won't be any change in unloading behavior since Form2 wasn't owned by Form1 (or any other Form) anyway.

    The reason for that behavior is because all top-level Forms in a VB6 process are owned by the unseen ThunderMain window. When one of your Forms becomes the foreground window, the rest are also...

  20. Re: [RESOLVED] CPU Screen - Keep from turning off

    So, what triggers your screen to turn itself off automatically anyway? Is it a Windows setting or something else? Why do you even need such code?

    Have you already made sure the Turn off display after setting in the Power Options Control Panel applet is set to Never?
