  1. Re: Possible Like Operator Bug?

    Doh ... I just noticed that in my code the parameters are flipped. When you correct that, then it crashes, too ...

  2. Re: Possible Like Operator Bug?

    Interesting find. Even more interesting is that no crash occurs when calling directly into MSVBVM60.dll:

  4. Re: Index makes only a tiny performance improvement

    Yes. :)

    Imagine you want to do a NOCASE like equality check in VB. What would you do? Probably somthing like this:

    If UCase$("ilia") = UCase$("Ilia") Then ...

    And that is what SQLite...

    One way (of many I can think of):

  6. Re: Index makes only a tiny performance improvement

    One should keep in mind that every TEXT column has a default collation. That is:

    * if you omit the COLLATE clause in the CREATE TABLE statement, it defaults to BINARY

  7. Re: Index makes only a tiny performance improvement

    Well, since there is no WHERE clause in your SQL query, sorting is the only thing that the index is beneficial for.

    Actually using an index means some kind of overhead. This overhead is worth its...

    Re: P-Code vs Native vs Crashing

    Ha ... "half way through the writing phase", that sounds familiar to me. I had this very same problem a couple of years ago with one specific project.

  9. Re: Focus the last line of the multiline text box vb6

    Actually it's not the focus you are talking about but the cursor position.

    Try like this:

    This did not happen in my case, not at all. Are you sure that the symtoms were the same as described by Darkbob? I think the crucial part is that the crash appears while the IDE displays "writing",...

    WinHTTP has nothing to do with the default browser, it's a completely independent thing.

    Here is a simple example how to use it.

  14. Re: Settinng DAO "dbBoolean" (True/False) format properties?

    Nevertheless, the "most correct" way would be to define a field of type dbBoolean (or, if you wish to use SQL: BIT), and then add a property to that field:

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

    Another way would be to leave the DLL where it is, reference (Declare) it without path and do a LoadLibrary() with the full path at startup. After that LoadLibrary call, once a Sub or Function in...
  16. Re: Form Titlebar Text Centering

    No it doesn't. At least not under Windows 8.1. It's centered here.

    I'd leave that to the System's discretion. Probably except if you're targeting at one specific OS version.

  17. Re: Why won't my VB program open in W10?

  18. Re: Why won't my VB program open in W10?

    Well, i guess you are the one to know that since you wrote it, right? ;)

    Seriously, as long as your local Avast install quarantines it there is an issue you should inform Avast about.

  19. Re: Why won't my VB program open in W10?

    Re: objptr alternative

    Well, VarPrt() of any object variable points to the ObjPtr, so you would only have to dereference VarPrt(). I wonder, however, why you would want to do that?

    Probably there is, but you cannot...
  22. Re: Why does my project look in the the wrong location for its .txt or image files?

    You got to be more specific as to how this "looking for" looks like. For instance, when looking for an image file, are you using LoadPicture()? And if so, are you stating the complete path to that...
