  2. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6 QUESTION: Do you ever find yourself creating pseudo forms?

    We have a VB6 production application that uses this quite extensively. Personally, I don't favor it as it makes changing the Form in the designer quite a hellish experience. However, there are ways...

  5. Re: Libertarian Case Against Regulations of Social Media Companies

    The thing about here is that there are enough "guards" to police the population effectively. There is no practical way to police an entire online population of hundreds of millions without some form...
  6. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Yea, I'm a huge fan of anonymous functions, lambda expressions and higher order functions. It just gives you so much flexibility.

    Well let's examine this.

    Ok I get it.

    Yea, I'm not really normal in the conventional sense. That's one of the reasons I don't take it personally. I am a bit nuts. But don't include anyone else. Call me a loon, I'm good...
  9. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    You're quite correct about this actually. No official diagnosis though, more of a self-diagnosis. I am bit OCD. I have been programming since I was like 9 years old. That has to have some kind of...

  12. Re: Libertarian Case Against Regulations of Social Media Companies

    Trying to police the entire world on your platform is a foolish endeavor at best in my opinion. A department of say, 100 individuals cannot effectively police 100 million people. However, AIs are...

  17. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    WPF has a steep learning curve but well worth it if you like designing stylish UIs. I'm far from an expert in WPF but the kind of things that true WPF experts can do will blow your mind. The...

    I hope you don't mind Elroy but I used this post as part of the the ongoing debate in my VB6/VB.Net thread. If you come across it, please don't take it as an attack on you or anything like that. It's...
  24. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Yet another example of how unintuitive VB6 is compared to .Net.

    Re: Complied app hangs on Exit Function statement

    Those subs/functions look kind of big. Don't VB6 applications have some kind of limit on how big a function can be?
