  1. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Below is code I use to determine if a file exists or not or whether it is a folder. It is unicode and can take path names up to 32,767 characters.


    Option Explicit

    Re: [VB6] Manifest Creator II

    Your release on 25 Oct 2017 shows version 2.0.4. So does your new version on 2 Sep 2019. Shouldn't it be incremented to at least 2.0.5?
  3. Re: [VB6, Vista+] Remember Open/Save state per-dialog instead of per-app (IFileDialog

    Thanks for the info. I bought two copies of VB6 but they are both the Professional VB6 and not Visual Studio so I am missing some of the utilities that came with Visual Studio.

    From what you...
  4. Re: [VB6, Vista+] Remember Open/Save state per-dialog instead of per-app (IFileDialog

    In your sample, you have GUIDS for each of two dialog boxes you show that settings can be saved individually. Where did you get the GUIDs that you used? In my own application how do I generate the...
  5. Re: [VB6] ucShellTree: Full-featured Shell Tree UserControl

    In the root folder for you v2.12 update you have a project which will compile to the OCX. However, in ShellTreeVBP there is line

    ResFile32="ucst.res"

    but that file does not exist in the zip...
  6. Re: [VB6] ucShellBrowse: A modern replacement for Drive/FileList w/ extensive feature

    I tried to compile ucShellBrowse into an .OCX like you describe in your first post but I get a compiler for an undefined variable/procedure IsIDE in line 8789. I looked in your demo projects and each...
  7. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    darkbob,

    You do not need a manifest in order to run the demo. The only thing you need is to reference the OLEGuids.tlb file in your project. BTW, the .tlb means it is a type library. It enables...
  8. Re: Krools Common Controls - Documentation and an Update/Compile Utility

    Thanks. Most of us using VB6 are, shall we say, not newbies in programming or VB6 so it is very easy for each of us to take 20+ years of learning the intricacies of thunks, inline assembly,...
  9. Re: Krools Common Controls - Documentation and an Update/Compile Utility

    It probably is best at this point for you to make your own thread on what you've done so we don't't get everyone confused.
  10. Re: Krools Common Controls - Documentation and an Update/Compile Utility

    The parser is only used for commandline execution of the utility. I don't do much script but I don't think that the "CommandW" function or "Command$" will work in Linux, at least as you have it...

    Duplicate post (grrr...)
  12. Re: [VB6] ucShellBrowse: A modern replacement for Drive/FileList w/ extensive feature

    Fafalone,

    I am having trouble with your demos. In the first one there is a reference to:

    ResFile32="..\resImagesNoMan.RES"

    but there is no such file in the package.

    Also, the projects in...

    Thanks for the comment translations. However, I am still getting the same performance of the tooltips in the IDE. the 7-line one generally stays displayed but the others just appear momentarily. That...

    Re: [VB6] - Multi-line standard tooltip.

    Trick,

    I run 64-bit Windows 10. I can't get your sample program to work correctly in the IDE. It works fine as a compiled EXE but in the IDE each of the tooltips flash once and then don't show....
  15. Re: Krools Common Controls - Documentation and an Update/Compile Utility

    Nineteen years ago I had a cardiac arrest and I was dead for 10 minutes. That really makes you look at life differently. I realize that a)I am not in control like i thought I was and b)I don't know...
  16. Krools Common Controls - Documentation and an Update/Compile Utility

    Krool has been developing a set of common controls replacements for the past 6 years. I use them all the time and have found them to be an indispensable part of my VB6 programming library. I have...
  17. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Krool,

    One more question. In the standard module ComCtlsBase you have a conditional compilation constant ImplementIDEStopProtection and it appears to toggle whether or not you include code for the...
  18. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Hi LOfADay. Just about everyone on this forum is contributing to not only keeping VB6 alive but improving on it. Krool's work is evidence of that but he is by no means the only one. I am not sure...

    Krool,

    I am close to finishing the utility that takes OCX versinos of both VBFLXGRDxx and VBCCRxx and cuts out the OCX parts and brings in the various control files from your ComCtlsDemo and...
  20. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Krool,

    I am working on a utility for your VBCCR and VBFLXGRD projects that enables either or both to be updated. In addition, if you have a project that uses the .OCX versions of each, this...
  21. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Krool,

    Back to the visual styles of the OCX version. When I look in the code for forms in ComCtlsDemo I find the first line is always a call to SetupVisualStyles which is in VisualStyles.bas in...
  22. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    That makes sense but it also brings up three questions that i have been wondering about for a while.

    1 - In the Std-Exe demo there is no manifest included like there is for the OCX version. Does...
  23. Re: CommonControls (Replacement of the MS common controls)

    Krool,

    You are saying we need to use InitVisualStyles in Procedure Main before showing a form. Okay. How about SetupVisualStyles? It is in VisualStyles.bas in the demo program (no OCX) and it...

  29. Re: Comprehensive Shell (CreateProcess & ShellExecuteEx Together)
