  1. Re: Getting the ball rolling. Which VB6 projects are you working on?

    Ah ok. Fair enough. Well keep working ;)
  2. Re: Getting the ball rolling. Which VB6 projects are you working on?

    Errr....not sure how I feel about that. If I were doing this I'd have used Winsock with my own protocol for this so I won't have to depend on a 3rd party site. I would have full control over the...
  3. Re: Getting the ball rolling. Which VB6 projects are you working on?

    Like group chat in WhatsApp?
  4. Re: Getting the ball rolling. Which VB6 projects are you working on?

    Does it also use DropBox for text messages and voice notes or just for sending files/folders?
  5. Re: Getting the ball rolling. Which VB6 projects are you working on?

    Ah ok. What's the application used for? Is it like some kind of internal WhatsApp type thing?

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

    You guys keep missing the point. VB6 is more than adequate to be used today. VB6 is an extremely powerful development environment. We all know that.

    However, to claim that it is overall better to...

    Re: Can anyone write an array module?

    So your answer to that is to use VB6, a 20 plus year piece of rusting technology that's on life support? Come on man, get real here. You can optimize performance in .Net applications as well as you...

    So what? What the hell kind of cyborg supermutant are you that you could actually tell the difference between 160 milliseconds and 15 milliseconds. Literally a waste of time worrying about this.

    Importing a type library or using error trap just to detect if an array is empty is monumentally insane.

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

    That's kind of the point. We shouldn't have to write our own libraries for it. That is just wasting time that could have been spent elsewhere.
