    After all this time I just noticed your question. Strip tags will remove all of the formatting tags in the text you select. In other words for example let's say you typed in some text and put Italic tags around it. You then change your mind and want to remove the Italic tags. To do that you select the text including the Italic tags and then select Strip Tags, and the Italic tags would be removed.

    I'm annoyed already. Anyway, have you tried this? Most of the features are programmed in VBScript. It should work in Opera as well. I don't know the popup menu stuff... but the features should work.

    When I select the "Color" option, an alert box opens with the message "You Need to Have CommonDialog Activex Control Installed!". What does this mean?
    I know it is part of the "C:\WINNT\Vb-World\color.htm" code, but does this mean that I don't have a certain dll component installed? (comctl32.dll, COMDLG32.DLL, etc), or is it a bug in the script?
    The "Rainbow", "Underline", "Line
    ______________________________________________________________________
    " and other options seem to work fine.
    I appreciate your response.

    When you open or create a project in VB does Microsoft Common Dialog Control 6.0 appear in the Components list?

    The color tag works fine. Your control might not be registered properly

    Colour coding for SQL queries. Makes them easier to read (IMO), may or may not be useful, you decide!

    e.g. -

    Code:
    -- Shows the vb forum tool - SQL option in action
    select * 
    from myTbl
    where id = 12
    and myName = 'Any Other'
    and myNum between 1 and 10
    and myDate = to_date('16/12/2003', 'dd/mm/yyyy')
    order by myName
    • Allows single line comments, Note: Don't include single quotes in them.
    • Multi-line comments aren't supported.
    • Commas, brackets and unspaced = < > etc. are not colour coded.
    • If you need to edit your query select the query and use the strip tags option to see it more
      clearly then re-apply the SQL formatting when done, which you would need to do anyway.


    Another Note: I've not tested every possible query

    [list=1][*]Installation instructions - [*]Copy the files in the post to C:\Windows\vb-world[*]Go to your Start menu, choose run, enter regedit, and click OK[*]Find HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt [*]Right-click on the Quote entry and you will see what the entry for SQL should look like[*]Create an entry for SQL by right-clicking on MenuExt and then selecting New|Key[*]Name that entry SQL[*]Right-click on the (Default) value, select Modify and and type in C:\Windows\vb-world\SQL.htm[*]Right-click on the new SQL entry and select New|Binary Value[*]Name that entry contexts[*]Right-click on the contexts entry, select Modify and type in 04[*]Exit the Registry editor[*]Close and restart VBF[/list=1]

    I apologize for this thread becoming so messy that it's hard to find everything. Here is the list that I am currently using. Are you missing anything? (Tab and Indent are the same thing.)

    • Bold
    • Color
    • Email
    • Gradient
    • Image
    • Indent
    • Italic
    • Line
    • List Bullets
    • List Numbered
    • Quote
    • Rainbow
    • Spell Check
    • Strip Tags
    • Subscript
    • Superscript
    • Underline
    • URL
    • VBCode

    BTW, I'll give a special prize (like 3 free swear words ) for anyone who can solve the problem with SpellCheck and make it so that VBF stays "on top" when a post is spell checked.

    For the allnewoptions.zip, is there an update for the registry install for W2K?

    Martin,

    Thanks for the list, I have them all. I've looked at the spell checker, unfortunately I've been unable to fix it. It works ok with XP

    Office 2K on XP Pro = OK
    Office 2K on Win2K Pro = No

    Cheers Al

    Sorry unfortunately there isn't, I updated them all manually only took a couple of minutes. The procedure is described in full within the zip.

    I have Word 2002 and XP Pro and when I spell check something, VBF gets pushed to the background.

    Then why don't you come up with it? I've made a half-crack attempt to get it to work with Opera, but never had the push to finish it.

    What happens when you are creating a Word document and you spell check it?

    If its any concellation, in my File Manager im attempting to create a "Rainbow Text Generator" tool for creating Rainbow Text. At the moment its working fine, i just cant get it to create a HTML code output. But i can work on that later. When the "Add-on" is complete for File Manager ill test it out here, and in AOL

    It's been suggested that all you need to do is download the control. Here it is. (You may have to register it).

    Are you asking where you can put your VBforums browser? If so then I would suggest the CodeBank.

    Well, i used some code from www.pscode.com to help me generate a HTML output code, i was now thinking of maybe making a vbForums output code so you can make rainbow text here, without dloading anything. Dont know how to go about this yet though, although not a high prioretry for me just yet.

    Wouldn't they have to download your code or duplicate it? What's the difference?

    I guess, but what i should of said was if i did get a method working for vbforums, it would be compatible in all browsers, and the code could just be copied from my app and pasted into therr signature

    You see, this tool doesnt work for me in AOL, only I.E, which i dont like.

    Here is an htm file that will implement Brad's HL (highlight) tags.

    Note: Zip file removed since as of 05/09/2006 it is no longer needed.

    Martin,

    I'm either being very dim, which is possible or I'm missing something I can't seem to get the HighLight.htm above to work

    [list=1][*]I've Copied Highlight.htm to C:\WinNT\vb-world[*]Opened regedit[*]Navigated to KEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt [*]Created an entry for Highlight by right-clicking on MenuExt and then selecting New|Key[*]Named the entry HighLight[*]Right-clicked on the (Default) value, selected Modify and and typed in C:\Windows\vb-world\Highlight.htm[*]Right-clicked on the new HighLight entry and selected New|Binary Value[*]Named the entry contexts and set the value to 04[*]Exited the Registry editor and restarted VBF[/list=1]

    Usage -
    Entering some text, select the entered text then right click choose HighLight - nothing happens? Have also tried it without selecting text too no avail??

    Any ideas?

    Cheers Al

    Re: VBWTool Utility - Now with "Highlight" function

    I just stumbled across the fact that the most htm files you can show at one time is 24. (Yes, I actually wanted a 25th.)
