  1. Re: How to id 2 different strings in one input

    That seems like it's totally up to you. Pick some kind of unique character, like |, and put that between the two strings.
  2. Re: VS 2017 displaying new button according to search results other way?

    You can improve on it in a couple ways. First off, you don't need that datareader. You only care whether there is a return or is not a return, you don't care what the return is, so you can use...

  5. VS 2019 Re: A trick to not have a solitary TextBox focused on form load.

    I'm glad you came back to this. I didn't see it the first time around, but while reading it today I was totally puzzled as to why you wouldn't want the text to wrap. Fortunately, you clarified the...

    Dim n As Integer
    If Integer.TryParse (TextBox1.Text, n) Then
    'It is an integer, and it is in n.
    Else

  7. Re: Parsing a textfile that each line is its own script.

    Well, you might be able to make a pretty exotic Dictionary that would work. Perhaps a Dictionary(of String, SomeKindOfDelegate). The key would be the command, but the delegate would have to be a bit...
  8. Re: VS 2017 is there another way to do this?

    Well, the best answer is probably to not use a textbox for numeric entry. If you use the NumericUpDown control (NUD), the .Value property is a Decimal. The .Text property of the NUD is still a...
  9. Re: VB6 - QUESTION - Is it possible to add tooltiptext to individual items in a treev

    Yes, it is possible in .NET, and you may be able to do the same thing in VB6. The control is not the node, it's the TreeView. Change the tooltip based on the node. Think about how you would handle...
  10. Re: Change directory and issue command with ffmpeg.

    I have no idea why this was in VB FAQ. It looks like VB.NET, so I moved it there. If that's incorrect, we'll move it where it belongs.

  13. Re: Naming convention for form wide variables.

    I should have made up a FormUnit class. That would be good to prepend onto a variable.

    I have a program that is mostly generated. Generated names are long, yet still not all that useful. You...

  21. Re: [RESOLVED] .NET Controls vs COM components in .NET environment
