  1. Re: VB NET 2010: Packing a VB6 32bit variable for an API call

    Well, that is true. The visual aspect is critical to my eye, the code, far less so - as long as it does the job. When I see a VB6 or .NET app on Windows 10 the visuals make me shudder. When I create...
  2. Re: VB NET 2010: Packing a VB6 32bit variable for an API call

    Well, my code now works and extracts the icons from a binary EXE or DLL.

    It isn't elegant as it has just been made to function and that's all. Just the one line does not work and that is the one...
  3. Re: VB NET 2010: Packing a VB6 32bit variable for an API call

    Damn! Why is it you can only find problems in your own code after you have requested help on the forum? I've been looking at the problem for days and I found a problem minutes after typing the above...

  5. VB NET 2010: Packing a VB6 32bit variable for an API call

    Chaps, hello.

    Apologies given in advance due to my ignorance. I am treading waters that are unknown to me so forgive me if any of this comes over as drivel.

    I have an API that I am trying to...
  6. Re: [RESOLVED] VB 2010 - lost all handles to events - ever happened to you?

    I know javascript well, it seems to work exactly as I'd expect, I get on with it, all those steampunk widgets are created using javascript. https://www.deviantart.com/yereverluvinuncleber/gallery/
  7. Re: [RESOLVED] VB 2010 - lost all handles to events - ever happened to you?

    Well, through each and every incompatibility or difference that I encounter I really do learn something. That knowledge does not always make me happy, sometimes the neighbours will hear "Feckeeeng...
  8. Re: [RESOLVED] VB 2010 - lost all handles to events - ever happened to you?

    Yes, if you'd like to start such a discussion thread about "the Sopranos" then I'd be pleased to join you there, having never watched it I am in the same position as a VB.NET migration, I know very...
  9. Re: [RESOLVED] VB 2010 - lost all handles to events - ever happened to you?

    No, not really. IF you knew anything about the installation base of legacy software then you might reconsider that thought. As time goes by and the possibility of those legacy VB6 systems finally...
  10. Re: [RESOLVED] VB 2010 - lost all handles to events - ever happened to you?

    Oh yes, I'm here to do that, that learning thing. Each problem encountered is a notch on the belt and something new learnt. That is why the migration path I am taking is so invaluable, it shows me...
  11. Re: [RESOLVED] VB 2010 - lost all handles to events - ever happened to you?

    Yes, I was doing a lot of that too and I'm sure that was all part of the problem. Lovely how they changed every aspect of the VB experience, from language to IDE, it seems specifically in order to...
  12. Re: Vb6 , the Future, and what I have discovered

    That's quite a useful find. I use vbscript for a few utilities as it has some functionality that only exists with vbscript and Microsoft's jscript. Do you know whether the Wine version has its own...
  13. Re: VB 2010 - lost all handles to events - ever happened to you?

    Bu@@er! I am sure it was something like that. I was cutting and paste-ing and moving things around. Gosh, I have a lot to learn. I had assumed that the handles would simply move with the controls....
  14. [RESOLVED] VB 2010 - lost all handles to events - ever happened to you?

    Has anyone had this happen before?

    VB 2010 Express.

    My project lost all its "handles object.event" code from every procedure declaration.

    I was dropping a custom scrollbar onto the form,...
  15. Re: Create a Word Processor Question

    Well, I'm not sure but I think it has something to do with my words...

    - as in "experience...tells me that starting out on a VB.NET project is not a task for the faint hearted."

    My experience...
  16. Re: Create a Word Processor Question

    I wouldn't inflict VB.NET on a starter either. VB6 may be a relic but from my experience it is still a better choice for the noob to actually get something going.

    Is it better to create something...

    Re: retro FileSystem Controls

    OK, did that. Add - Existing Project, - selected via browse, the controls appear in the top of the project as you suggested. All seems good.

    I can drop a filelist onto the form and it appears as...

    Re: retro FileSystem Controls

    "Type 'fileList' is not defined."

    Have I added the controls in the correct manner, as I described above?

    The project's controls were built as a class library and the resulting DLL, 'retro...

    Re: retro FileSystem Controls

    Hello .paul.

    I was just playing with these retro controls. They appear useful and the code is informative on building controls, however they don't quite work and I'm trying to find out why.

  20. Re: Vb6 , the Future, and what I have discovered

    Actually, my point was more about trust. I'd be prepared to trust Olaf and what he creates. Maybe I should have been a little more clear. Given time and a little more knowledge, I would be prepared...
  21. Re: Vb6 , the Future, and what I have discovered

    I've taken the risk of reopening this thread.

    o When a man is on a mission, just as Olaf is, isn't it best just to let him get on with it? Olaf spends a lot of time on forums defending his...
  22. Re: [RESOLVED] VB.NET 2010 QUESTION: Is there a library of VB6 method polyfills?

    I found this useful page:

    Showing others at some point have been looking for the same.

    I found it whilst...
  23. Re: Persistent Debug Print Window

    Elroy, I love this addition to VB6 and it adding it to my Rocketdock Enhanced Settings utility was a real boon to debugging certain runtime issues.

    Do you have a VB.NET version? If not then I'll...
  24. Re: [RESOLVED] VB NET QUESTION: Dynamically adding an array of controls to a form's g

    By the way, all the icons you see in my tool were all designed by me, there are hundreds of the things, I created one per day for at least a year. It all contributes to the look and feel of the tool...
  25. Re: [RESOLVED] VB NET QUESTION: Dynamically adding an array of controls to a form's g

    Well, my suggestion is to take a pre-existing design and replicate it graphically and then functionally, then enhance it. Take a bit of useful software that you love or have loved, one that has been...
  26. Re: VB NET QUESTION: Dynamically adding an array of controls to a form's groupbox, ho

    Well, not quite true. I have no 'formal' programming experience so what I know is just what I picked up. So much still 'escapes' me.

    I used to program as a hobby using QB45 and I converted my 'big...
  27. Re: VB 2010 QUESTION: How to stop drop-down menu graphically breaking down

    In the end I just placed a Me.Refresh() to the next routine the menu click calls that adds the icon details. One line provided a workaround, so I suppose it will do. A difference between VB6 and .NET...
  28. Re: VB NET QUESTION: Catching a double-click event using addhandler - How?

    Do we have an off-topic button? Can't see one.
    The spittie is a frail but fun car. You have to be prepared to work on her at a moment's notice. Difference compared to today's cars? So incredibly...
  29. Re: VB NET QUESTION: Catching a double-click event using addhandler - How?

    Agreed. I am replacing all the VB compatibility controls and the file list is one of them. The VB6 filelist control is a very simple but effective filelist that handles single/doubleclick in a very...
  30. Re: VB NET QUESTION: Catching a double-click event using addhandler - How?

    It is actually "Yer ever luvin' uncle Bert" if that helps. It is a bit of a portmanteau. The username truncates when used on some sites but I don't really care about that, I stick with it. It makes...
  31. Re: VB NET QUESTION: Catching a double-click event using addhandler - How?

    Wilco!
  32. Re: VB NET QUESTION: Catching a double-click event using addhandler - How?

    You are probably right. The original VB6 design, when the pictureBox was clicked upon once, it merely selected the icon for a preview. When it was double-clicked it was placed into the map. I think I...
  33. Re: VB NET QUESTION: Catching a double-click event using addhandler - How?

    Thankyou. I will respond with what I find when my testing is complete.
  34. Re: [RESOLVED] VB NET QUESTION: Dynamically adding an array of controls to a form's g

    That's really useful, I'll give it a go.
  35. Re: [RESOLVED] VB NET QUESTION: Dynamically adding an array of controls to a form's g

    Yes, I am happy to try it, I am not 'debating' anything, it was just an aside on the original question and the answer is probably useful not to just me but to others. The answer does not seem to be...
  36. Re: [RESOLVED] VB NET QUESTION: Dynamically adding an array of controls to a form's g

    It is rather with regard to the "32 bit processes only" rather than the "supported" bit that I am unclear over.

    Thus my earlier comment, "I was led to believe that the VB6 compatibility namespace...

  38. [RESOLVED] VB 2010 QUESTION: How to stop drop-down menu graphically breaking down

    Hello, another question.

    Secondly forgive all the references to VB6, this is because VB6 is just my point of reference as I have an existing project to compare. This issue I am observing - it is...
  39. Re: VB NET QUESTION: Dynamically adding an array of controls to a form's groupbox, ho

    Did you find anything?

    This is possibly what initially led me to my thought that only 32bit binaries could be built when using VB6 compatibility namespace. Then that was confirmed looking around...
  40. Re: VB NET QUESTION: Catching a double-click event using addhandler - How?

    The only reason I am responding is for above line. All of the rest you stated is quite correct.
