    Re: Display repeated data(like repeater in asp.net)

    You can use 3 columns in the ListView and the MSFlexGrid control.
    You can also use the MSFlexGrid control and show the 3 fields in their own rows, having 3 rows per record.
    Then you can make the each 1st row bold or having a different font size.

    Re: Display repeated data(like repeater in asp.net)

    Basic sample:
    Code:
    Private Sub Command1_Click()
      Static CNT As Long
      
      CNT = CNT + 1
      AddRecord CStr(CNT) & " TRAINING", "Please note that we now have a new training program in place for all interpreters. Please register online", "Posted by: Ian McKenzie Mon 29 Feb 2016, " & Time
      
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub Form_Load()
      With MSFlexGrid1
        .FixedRows = 0
        .FixedCols = 0
        .Rows = 0
        .Cols = 1
        .ColWidth(0) = .Width
        .ColAlignment(0) = flexAlignLeftCenter
      End With
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub AddRecord(Field1 As String, Field2 As String, Field3 As String)
      Dim lMainRow As Long
      With MSFlexGrid1
        lMainRow = .Rows
        .AddItem UCase$(Field1)
        .AddItem Field2
        .AddItem Field3
        .Row = lMainRow: .RowSel = lMainRow
        .CellFontBold = True
        .CellBackColor = RGB(255, 255, 127)
        lMainRow = .Rows
        .Rows = .Rows + 1
        .RowHeight(lMainRow) = Screen.TwipsPerPixelY * 1
        .Row = lMainRow: .RowSel = lMainRow
        .CellBackColor = RGB(1, 1, 1)
      End With
    End Sub

    Re: Display repeated data(like repeater in asp.net)

    Yeah, typically that's how it's done... in a grid of some kind. Mostly because it's the path of least resistance. I don't think VB6 has a built-in repeater control... I've seen them, but they were third party controls, which have long since gone the way of the Dodo...

    which means rolling your own... which isn't overly difficult, but can be tedious at times.

    If it were me... this is probably how I'd do it:
    1 - create a user control that displays one record
    2 - create a second user control - put a picture box on it... the UC then accepts a Recordset... loops through the recordset, pulls the data needed, creates a new instance of the UC from #1, feeds it the info to display, then adds it to the Picturebox...
    3 - add any otehr needed code - I don't know if you'll need to handle scrol;ling yourself or if the PB will take care of that for you...
    4 - that UC can then be dropped onto a form, and then passed the data at run-time.

    Re: Display repeated data(like repeater in asp.net)

    Have you looked at the standard VB6 DataRepeater (MSDatRep.ocx) control?

    Re: Display repeated data(like repeater in asp.net)

    Hello Arnoutdv,

    The data coming from DB table. these are not static content. it is just given for example. How can we give DB data one by one to AddRecord function.

    That is what that we want. now few changes we want to do.
    1) we want to make 'Please note that we now...' line wrap in case of too much text. should we wrap it?
    2) we want to make 'posted by' line right aligned and font to italic. should we need to take 2 column?
    3) we also want to set vertical scroll bar as we have so many posts but do not want to display horizontal scroll bar.

    1. NEW TRAINING PROGRAMME
    Please note that we now have a new training program in place for all interpreters. Please register Online. We
    want this line to wrap.

    Re: Display repeated data(like repeater in asp.net)

    I hope you know how to retrieve data from your database?
    Then you can pass the fields to the "AddRecord" method.
    I just gave an example, use this as a base for your own method.
    Study the help for the MSFlexGrid for additional layout like alignment, fonts etc.

    Hello Arnoutdv,

    Many thanks for the code. Finally I have made modification in you code and make my output.

    With MSFlexGrid1
    .FixedRows = 0
    .FixedCols = 0
    ' .Rows = 0
    .Cols = 2
    .ColWidth(0) = .Width
    .ColAlignment(0) = flexAlignLeftCenter
    End With

    Public Sub LoadData()

    Dim rst As Recordset
    Dim i As Integer
    On Error GoTo LoadErr
    Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset
    Dim k As Integer


    strSql = "select p.*,ca.Firstname, ca.Lastname from tblposts p inner join CAMAccts ca on p.Username = ca.Username Order by CreateModifyDate desc"

    PrepareRecordset rs
    rs.Open strSql

    If rs.RecordCount > 0 Then
    If (rs("IsLogoDisplay")) Then
    imgLogo.Visible = True
    Else
    imgLogo.Visible = False
    End If
    lblPageHeader.Caption = rs("PageHeader")

    k = 1
    MSFlexGrid1.Cols = 3
    For i = 1 To rs.RecordCount
    ' MSFlexGrid1.Rows = MSFlexGrid1.Rows + 1
    ' AddRecord i, rs("id") & " " & rs("PageHeading"), CStr(rs("Description")), "Posted by: " & rs("Firstname") & " " & rs("Lastname") & _
    ' " " & Left(WeekdayName(Weekday(rs("CreateModifyDate"))), 3) & " " & Day(rs("CreateModifyDate")) & " " & MonthName(Month(rs("CreateModifyDate")), True) & " " & Year(rs("CreateModifyDate"))
    ' rs.MoveNext
    ' Next i
    ''''''''''''
    MSFlexGrid1.Rows = (rs.RecordCount * 3) + 1
    With MSFlexGrid1
    For j = 1 To 3
    If j = 1 Then
    .TextMatrix(k, 1) = rs(0) & ". " & rs("PageHeading")
    .ColWidth(1) = 16500
    .Col = 1
    .Row = k
    .CellFontBold = True
    .CellAlignment = vbLeftJustify
    k = k + 1
    End If
    If j = 2 Then
    .TextMatrix(k, 1) = rs("Description")
    .Col = 1
    .Row = k
    .ColWidth(2) = 16500
    .CellAlignment = vbLeftJustify
    .WordWrap = True
    ' .AllowUserResizing = flexResizeBoth
    ' .ColAlignment(1) = flexAlignLeftTop
    .RowHeight(k) = 800
    ' .RowHeight(1) = Screen.TwipsPerPixelY * 1
    k = k + 1
    End If
    If j = 3 Then
    .TextMatrix(k, 2) = "Posted by: " & rs("Firstname") & " " & rs("Lastname") & _
    " " & Left(WeekdayName(Weekday(rs("CreateModifyDate"))), 3) & " " & Day(rs("CreateModifyDate")) & " " & MonthName(Month(rs("CreateModifyDate")), True) & " " & Year(rs("CreateModifyDate"))
    .ColWidth(2) = 4000
    .Col = 2
    .Row = k
    .CellFontItalic = True
    .CellAlignment = flexAlignRightCenter
    k = k + 1
    End If
    Next j
    .RowHeight(0) = 0
    .ColWidth(0) = 0
    End With
    rs.MoveNext
    Next i
    End If

    Exit Sub

    LoadErr:
    MsgBox "Error:" & err & " " & err.Description
    Call Trap_Errors(err.Number, err.Description, Now, Me.name, "OpenRequest")

    End Sub

    Thanks
