  1. Re: [RESOLVED] Grid showing normal on Windows XP, but black cell on Windows 10

    iirc DBgrid32.ocx originated in VB5 (but can be used in VB6 of course). MSdatgrd.ocx is from VB6, but is similar to the older control. Both have a 'BackColor' property.

    Looking at your...
  2. Re: Grid showing normal on Windows XP, but black cell on Windows 10

    When you said you tried the high contrast theme, did you try 'High Contrast White' (not the default High Contrast Black).

    The assumption is that the grid backcolor is set to an incorrect System...
  3. Re: Grid showing normal on Windows XP, but black cell on Windows 10

    One difference between earlier themes and Windows 10 themes is that the older ('Classic') themes normally have the Titlebar text in White, newer themes use Black.
    If the Grid has its background...
  4. Re: MS Calendar Control doesn't select date corectly frequently

    @jdy0803

    As the others have said, you shouldn't really be using mscal.ocx in VB6. It was provided for Office/Access and legally isn't available for VB6 use. But many do use it in VB6.
    It should...

    Re: The best programming language?

    JavaScript is the 'VB6' of web development. Like VB6 it is widely used despite its faults.

    If you are (as I read this) looking for a scripting language easy for VB6 users to learn I'd suggest...
  7. Re: problem with Windows 10

    Hi Gordon,

    If only a couple of textboxes on a form are blacked out and the rest OK, then those textboxes probably have the wrong setting for the textbox background color. They should have been...
  8. Poll: Re: Do you use the VB6 IDE in MDI or SDI mode?

    So am I. Even though I voted for MDI, I did so because I mainly code on a laptop. When I use a large/second monitor I prefer SDI.

    With your rectangle add-in for Windows 10, I'll probably be using...

  10. Re: Vba for excel userform in a vb6 Project. Possibile?

    The best way to do this is to create a new VB6 form, put the equivalent VB6 controls on it naming them exactly the same as the controls on the VBA userform. Then copy and paste the VBA code to the...
  11. Re: No troll. What are the (legitimate) reasons people are still using VB6 ?

    But even if people now refer to C# as just ".NET" (I see your point, but I don't fully accept it) that doesn't account for Visual Basic .Net climbing so high (the largest increase this month) to...
  12. Re: No troll. What are the (legitimate) reasons people are still using VB6 ?

    Tiobe's February's index has Visual Basic .Net as the fifth most popular language.

    That makes it more popular than JavaScript, more popular than C# and more popular than Visual Basic.

    That may...
  13. Re: Xojo Improved? VB6 alternative, anyone have experience with this?

    You could look at B4J or Gambas for Raspberry pi. Maybe NSBasic too.
  14. Re: Need advice on a new Visual Basic 6 inspired product (Yazz)

    If your 30-day evaluation expires, you can change the system date on your PC when you start the demo. It only checks it on start, so you can put it back right away.
  15. Re: Need advice on a new Visual Basic 6 inspired product (Yazz)

    NS Basic also targets web apps (and can use node.js).
    So you can develop a multi-user NSBasic Windows app. But they have the same difficulty that you have. Doing "desktop" database CRUD apps is...
  16. Re: No troll. What are the (legitimate) reasons people are still using VB6 ?

    VB.Net ranks higher than C# (and JavaScript!) on Tiobe. Microsoft tell us that C# has 10 times the number of users than VB.Net. I'd suggest Microsoft is more likely to be correct than Tiobe is.

    You could try Rubberduck

    It's free and open source.
  18. Re: Need advice on a new Visual Basic 6 inspired product (Yazz)

    You need to look at NS Basic. This has a VB6-like IDE, you code in VB and it transpiles to JavaScript. You keep your source code in VB and transpile it each time you modify the source code. Node.js...
  19. Re: No troll. What are the (legitimate) reasons people are still using VB6 ?

    It is. Or at least more widely installed, if only used occasionally by each user.
    In fact VBA is probably the most popular language (more so than Java or JavaScript) if you count the number of...
  20. Re: No troll. What are the (legitimate) reasons people are still using VB6 ?

    That's the inevitable result of breaking backwards compatibility. That decision split the VB community and reduced the popularity of both VB6 and VB.Net. Now Microsoft feel free to ignore both.

  22. Re: No troll. What are the (legitimate) reasons people are still using VB6 ?

    Those of us who chose VB6 programming got it right. 20 years and still the best language for Windows desktop.

    Add JavaScript to that (for web and mobile) and you've covered most bases.
  23. Re: No troll. What are the (legitimate) reasons people are still using VB6 ?

    Actually I chose VB.Net for mobile development, and still use it for that. But then Microsoft abandoned Windows Mobile, just like they have abandoned so many other things.

    Re: Upgrade VB.60 to a web language

    A language to look at (for the client-side) is NS Basic. This is a VB6-like language with a VB6-like IDE that transpiles to (compiles to) JavaScript.

    You can create forms in NSBasic with VB6 like...

  27. Re: No troll. What are the (legitimate) reasons people are still using VB6 ?

    Are you saying that people who have been developing web apps and mobile apps should now switch to C# ?

    That isn't going to happen any more than people developing in VB6 are going to switch to...
  28. Re: No troll. What are the (legitimate) reasons people are still using VB6 ?

    Threads like this one are always fascinating. Sometimes it seems like you are listening to a conversation with two people speaking different languages (which with VB6 and VB.Net I guess we are).

  30. Re: No troll. What are the (legitimate) reasons people are still using VB6 ?

    One of the advantages of OOP is that you avoid spaghetti code. With OOP you get lasagne code instead. :)

    Sure. Criticising OOP is rather like swearing in church.

    But nailing your opinions to the church door has been known to work.

  34. Re: vb6 encapsulated inside Android app Apk

    It could be worth you looking at B4A (Basic for Android) and NS Basic (basic for hybrid mobile apps).

    You can often copy and paste VB6 code into them.
