  1. Re: How Do You Make A Working Save Dialog In Visual Basic 3.0?

    I probably have some code for that in one of my archives but probably would be difficult to find given I havn't touched any VB3 projects in over 20 years. now.
    I can't remember off the top of my...
  2. Re: VB6 - I made a mistake - I installed Visual Studio 2017 and it broke things

    I installed VS2017 on my Windows 10 box that has VB6 on it, both work just fine.
    I have never saw a reason to uninstall any of the VS versions from my systems.

    I would try to re-install VS2017...
  3. Re: Read Text file and make changes to text by searching a string

    I did not fully examine your code that is posted but if you wrote that code then you should be able to create the required loop.
  4. Re: I made an OS in VB - want input for improvement

    I guess the main requirement imo to call something an OS would be that it is capable of being installed on a blank system, then be able to boot up and operate the system and for it to be any real...
  5. Re: I made an OS in VB - want input for improvement

    The original BASIC maybe but Visual Basic ? I don't think so. VB was designed to run under Windows which was designed to be the front end on a DOS system.
  6. Re: Read Text file and make changes to text by searching a string

    Sounds like you just need to add a loop for the replacement.
    Read in each line then split then in a loop check to see if the column value=-90 if not then replace if yes then exit the loop and...
  7. Re: 64 bit Visual Basic 6.0 Alpha Platform Development System?

    I have a disc here somewhere with the NT 4.0 64 Alpha on it. Not sure if I have the VB6 64 though. I do have the VB5 RISC edition and some other rare ones that I got from MSDN back in the day.
  8. Re: Copying one pixel from Picture2 to Picture3

    Perhaps you should look at post #4 again.
  9. Re: INFORMATION: Packaging a VB6 project for distribution with all dependancies.

    You use either the package and deployment wizard that is included with VB6 or you use another install creator.

    Re: VB6 Two days later ...

    If you can see everyone's cards is it really poker at all?
    Seems that to do 4 player poker you would need 4 copies of the program talking to each other and running on different computers so each...
  11. Re: Using DIR function with multiple specific file types

    That happens to me all the time but it is after I hit post reply the first time I get the message and the screen looks like it has not been posted. If I wait and hit the post button then it is a...
  12. Re: Using DIR function with multiple specific file types

    Over 32k files in a folder seems more than a bit excessive to me. Why so many files in a single folder?
    Perhaps creating some sub directories and copying the files of the given types to their own...
  13. Re: Keeping an image persistent in a User Control

    Yes if there are a lot of them then a db would be a reasonable choice as may a random file.
    From the OP I assumed it was just talking about 1 which would be fine in a config or reg entry but more...
  14. Re: Keeping an image persistent in a User Control

    Yep, will need to use a config file or reg entry or something of the sort to save and reload settings.

    Re: Modifying old VB6 code

    The first audio cds I bought were in the late 80s. All of them still work just fine.
    The first CDs I bought for the PC were in the mid 90s and they also still worked the last time I tried them.

    Re: Modifying old VB6 code

    The life span definitely varies by CD. I have had some that were basically useless when new and others that had saw a lot of abuse and still worked fine.

  17. Re: Error occurs when ActiveX dll is compiled

    Do you mean when it is being compiled or when it is used after being compiled?
    Does it run in the IDE without the error?
  18. Re: Grid showing normal on Windows XP, but black cell on Windows 10

    I haven't fooled with the themes much on 10 but overall the options appear much more limited than on previous versions.
    It would likely be a simple fix if you had the code but without it you are...
  19. Re: Grid showing normal on Windows XP, but black cell on Windows 10

    Yes classic theme can often be the cure but not when using Windows 10. If you do not have the source then the only thing I can think of is to try different themes and see if any of them work for you....
  20. Re: Grid showing normal on Windows XP, but black cell on Windows 10

    Most likely theme related.
    If you have the source code check and see what the background of the grid is set to, most likely it is using a color from a theme and that color is different on the active...
  21. Re: Your first BASIC computer? Has your software survived?

    My first go with a form of Basic was on a Timex Sinclair 1000 that my brother picked up at a yard sale back in the early 80s. The unit had some keys that did not work and was not possible to do a lot...

    Re: mswinsck.ocx transfer speed

    So you are really using a 10mb connection [can only go as fast as the slowest link] and that would make the transfer take 10 times as long so 5 seconds becomes 50 seconds then there is likely a...

    Re: mswinsck.ocx transfer speed

    I would expect it to be a lot faster than that unless you are trying to send the data in small blocks which could slow it down a lot. I have one server program I use winsock.ocx in and the transfer...

    It is best to use the date time format. I do it all the time and have no issues.
    What problem are you having?
    May help to also show the oce you are using that is causing you trouble.

  26. Re: Is there a maximum DLL path length for Delcare statement?

    I am not sure about VB6 back in VB5 I ran into a limit, seems like it was 50 characters max, since then I have avoided the really long path names just in case.

    Re: Centering Text In A Textbox and Listbox

    Re: Form corrupted of vb6

    Yep all nulls, whatever was there before is gone and can not be recovered from that file. You'll need to restore a backup copy of the file if you have one.
  29. Re: Best Practices -- Code Testing

    Yep, never use the live db for testing.
    What I usually do is use a different connection string when testing and that is pointed to a different DB which if needed will be an exact copy of the...
  30. Re: Problem with KB4494441, KB4493509, KB4505056 and VB40016.dll

    Can't say I ever did anything 16 bit for 98. The 16 bit part of VB4 IMO was only useful if you had an existing Windows 3.1 app written in VB3 and wanted to migrate it. In every other case it made...
  31. Re: Problem with KB4494441, KB4493509, KB4505056 and VB40016.dll

    One of the performance issues I uncovered along the way...
  32. Re: Problem with KB4494441, KB4493509, KB4505056 and VB40016.dll

    I am assuming that file is used by a 16 bit application written in VB4. If so then it is a bit surprising that it works at all on modern 32 and 64 bit systems. 16 bit was outdated 25 years ago and...
  33. Re: asp classic find duplicate record in database

    Well you do not seem to be checking the date correctly so that may be your problem.

    That said rather than looping though a recordset you may be better off using a query.
    Also note that the...

  39. Re: How to return value from child form to parent form?

    Yes the example in post #6 is also fine.
    In VB.Net they added an option of showdialog which will return a result but that does not exist in VB6.
