    Re: Template for RichTextBox

    Early RTF was progressing toward something HTML-like with "protected" and unprotected text markup. The unprotected areas could be edited by the user. This was all but abandoned early on. Vestiges...

    BTW:

    The error you ran into was probably from trying to assign a value to a degenerate call to the Variant function Command(). There is no reason not to call Command$() instead, and don't try to...

    Re: File Association Problem

    If you didn't want quotes then don't add them in the command line template that you cram into the registry. If you leave them in then just:


    Private Sub GetFile(ByRef FileName As String)
    :
    End...
  5. Re: Decimal to Hexadecimal in Half instead of Double

    I suspect the only reason hex comes in is either deep confusion or as a clunky way to pass binary data around as text. i think he's talking about faffing around with half-precision floating-point...
  6. Re: Decimal to Hexadecimal in Half instead of Double

    Better explain what you want. There is no VB or Automation support for R2 half-precision floats.

    Also, that code sucks on many levels. What garbage can did you find it in?

    Re: Template for RichTextBox

    Doesn't sound very useful. If you only need something that basic I'm not sure why this was a question.

    Properly implementing textstyles and templates is far more involved than this.

    No, explicitly asking for text format doesn't save in RTF format.
