    Re: Organization of VB6 Source Code

    Better is in the eye of the beholder, but I'd suggest that there is also a worse way. I've always felt that the way header files worked in C/C++ was particularly awkward. It may be that this is no...

    Yeah, it's a checkbox, but it all works using the same model. I don't know that a checkbox is not implemented as a checkbox control that floats over the underlying cell. The underlying cell is not a...

    I prefer to do that when the tire is NOT spinning. Just seems safer that way.

    A buddy of mine bought a Spitfire a couple years back. It was in great shape, but he did some work on it and is now selling it for a considerable profit.

    Re: Foreign Aid???

    I do my taxes by hand each year. Nothing much changed that I was aware of. I'd have to go back a few years to see, but it sure doesn't feel like anything has changed since I paid off my house.

    Back in VB6, the flex grid couldn't be edited. You could make it editable pretty easily by floating a textbox over the cell, sizing it to the same size as the cell, and moving the text from the cell...

    It's spring. New threads are sprouting all over the place, and the temperature is rising. Usually, the temperature causes the new sprouts, but this seems like the other way around.

    The timer is too simple an animal to take any blame for this. The reason will end up lying elsewhere.

    No, and you have the wrong diagnosis, but we'd have to see some code to be able to figure it out.

    I can see that option in closed threads. I would expect that others could, as well, but I only looked in some 'sticky' closed threads at the tops of some of the forums, so those might be different.
