  1. Re: Stop / Starting Outlook via VBScript

    HELP; You need to be more specific in your post titles and in the initial description of your problem. Be terse but precise and get straight to the point. Too many distracting words only confuse.

  2. Re: ECMA group for BASIC - who would you nominate?

    I would invite some of the QB64 chaps but as they are known as a disruptive and argumentative crowd, it may be best to only offer them associate membership only.
  3. Re: ECMA group for BASIC - who would you nominate?

    I will spelunk without knowing what that means. I think it may be messy.
  4. Re: ECMA group for BASIC - who would you nominate?

    Yes, I'd agree with that. It would be useful to act as a bulwark against imposed changes that 'feel' wrong to the community. We know how MS can hijack a product and then destroy it from within. If we...

    Re: Right language(s) to learn?

    Assuming you might have posted elsewhere on this forum, it seems that VB6 is having some sort of resurgence due to TwinBasic/RADBasic and it might be the perfect learning tool, a step upon a ladder...
  6. Re: ECMA group for BASIC - who would you nominate?

    Niya might have some good suggestions and I know he has good experience in more modern languages and their usage but he also does like a battle and I think that in such a team you'd want to avoid...
  7. Re: ECMA group for BASIC - who would you nominate?

    You are quite right!



    Luckily, that's not me.
  8. Re: New to VBScript - VS 2022 for editing/debug

    You are in danger of overloading this thread. The title is "...VS 2022 for editing/debug" but it actually pertains to using and debugging VBscript in VS 2022 whilst you also have scripting issues....
  9. Re: ECMA group for BASIC - who would you nominate?

    I'll get the ball rolling then.

    Wayne Phillips of TwinBasic because he is making actual dynamic changes to the VisualBASIC 6 language to support more advanced functions required for a future TB....
  10. Re: New to VBScript - VS 2022 for editing/debug

    Someone will help you with debugging the vbScript in VS2022 but you could well debug it in VB6?
    Perhaps instead use the Windows scheduler to run a simple batch file to do the copying instead? That...
  11. ECMA group for BASIC - who would you nominate?

    IF we had a group to determine the future of BASIC, new keywords, functionality, direction such as that for javascript, ie. ECMA who would you nominate to be on that working group?

    Re: Buttons design and caption

    Why doesn't an OLEDragDrop work on a picbox? I think you may be wrong. I am sure it does.



    You could obviously restrict the choice to a suite of colours and provide those as images. I think...

    Re: Buttons design and caption

    All new VB6 programs run the risk of being flagged as a virus by one a/v tool or another. Just use virustotal to determine in advance which sees your exe as a threat. Then it is YOUR job to flag it...

    Re: Buttons design and caption

    Well, turn off Avira and find a better antivirus tool. Alternatively, set an exclusion on the project folder.

    Instead of buttons you can use picture controls and create your own buttons...
  17. Re: Add-Ins, what do you use them for?

    Two of my older budget laptops were AMD chipsets and I did not have that issue with MZ-tools. What I did have was two slow laptops in general despite being supposedly 2.7ghz (turbo) quad cores they...

    Suggestion: on the blog in github, drop in a small image on occasion, if appropriate and if possible. Sometimes an associated picture speaks louder than just the text.

  21. Re: im about of making a BASIC computer

    I'd agree with gaouser that it would be next to impossible for gaouser to create a replacement for VB6. I shall use as evidence the fact that as gaouser is unable to use any sort of English grammar...
  22. Re: Add-Ins, what do you use them for?

    Rubberduck is a really useful tool when you want to release your spaghetti and malformed code to the world. However, it is slow to operate on a cooking-style laptop with a less than stellar CPU.

    Re: Help with CodeHelp?

    More information about the environment might help, I don't mean outside temperatures - VB6, o/s versions at the very least.
  26. Re: This code doesn't wok in 64bit

    Perhaps you should start by telling us what the code is for exactly, what it is meant to do on a 32bit system, what it actually does on a 64bit system and what you are trying to achieve? Any...

    FYI - I don't have that problem at all on the two Win10 machines I operate.

    MZtools 3.0, the older free version for the amazing suite of extra functionality that it provides
    VbAdvance for the very useful compile button

    Well, it certainly isn't working here on this forum. I think that first and foremost you need to go on a grammar refresher course. Use of the shift key is not difficult and in order to avoid replies...
  30. Re: This code doesn't wok in 64bit

    Having just watched the departure and funeral of Her Maj. QEII (and drunk her health too) I am now listening to the marching tune of the British Grenadiers. A damn good tune to whistle.

  33. Re: Best Alternative to VB6 for teaching and training

    Yes, thanks for that. I have been aware of it for quite a while, when it first emerged in fact. The thing is that product is ONLY for teaching and learning and cannot really extend from teaching to...
  34. Re: Best Alternative to VB6 for teaching and training

    Well it might exist but that is exactly why I am asking, as I have not found it myself. There are better brains out there with more knowledge and if you don't ask them, you don't get.

    I've just...
  35. Re: Best Alternative to VB6 for teaching and training

  37. Re: Best Alternative to VB6 for teaching and training

    Yes, I think you may be entirely right. Strange though when it comes to thinking about a potential replacement for VB6, then VB6 (+TB) is one of them in 2022.
