    Everyone Who Hasn't Posted in the CodeBank Before PLEASE Read

    The CodeBank is a place where you can post your favorite working code examples, code snippets, ActiveX controls, and tutorials. Please keep in mind that the Codebank forum is specifically for sharing code and so if you have questions that are not directly related to a CodeBank entry, please ask them in the Classic Visual Basic or other forums.

    When you post something here, please follow these few simple guidelines.
    • Include a clear subject line on your submission.
    • The subject line should contain enough information so that someone else can get a general idea of what it is about without having to read the post. Please try to follow an "xxx - yyyyyyyyy" format where

      xxx = Language (VB, VB.Net, C++, <any others> )
      yyy = Description
    • In the body of the post please state what the code does,
    • Describe anything special about using the code or incorporating it into an application, and
    • If appropriate include a usage example.


    Please see this post or any of the posts by me or Jamie for examples.

    In order to avoid duplicating something that is already in the Codebank, please do a search before posting.

    If you have any suggestions for how we can improve the CodeBank, please post your suggestion in Forum Feedback.

    Exclamation Please Search This Forum Before Posting

    It's been reported that duplicate or nearly duplicate code is being submitted by different people. There is nothing really wrong with that but it would be better if it didn't happen, so please search this forum before submitting your code.

    Question... how come there is only 2 pages of Codebank? I know I submitted a short 60-line segment of code for producing Round Gradient-Filled Buttons a few months back.... seems to have fallen off the face of the forums..

    A general note on usage of the forum software:

    To see all the entries in the CodeBank subforums, you should verify that you have selected to view all threads "From the beginning". There is a drop-down list at the bottom of the list of threads that you can change to this value.

    Can I submit code that works for one thing, but needs a little help to make it work with another? (e.g. code that can make your computer fly, but not yet swim,but working toward the goal?)

    I would like to see code like that posted in the Code It Better forum.

    Just wanted to tack on something that has been brought to my attention.

    If you have an example that was written for the most part by someone else, common courtesy would suggest that you give credit where credit is due when posting.

    Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Cry, and you just water down your vodka.


    Take credit, not responsibility
