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

    Do you fancy giving us an overview of how your VB6 program interfaces with AutoCad/Sketchup and what it does internally to create those models? Visually the result is very nice but it would be of...
  3. Re: Getting the ball rolling. Which VB6 projects are you working on?

    So, is the data there formatted using HTML and .js? I am presuming that is some sort of Enterprise Monitoring System you have there? I'd like to know more.

    Re: [RESOLVED] Playing music

    Who is this person that doesn't know? Now, as far as I can tell the original poster DOES know the duration of his own mp3 files. He can easily determine the duration.

    Re: [RESOLVED] Playing music

    I don't 100% agree. If you know the mp3/wav file duration and it isn't going to change, what's the point of all the complex code and API calls? The file duration is more or less a constant. You just...

    If the music files are known to the program already, ie. you provide those values hard coded within your program or within the filename as suggested. You can extract duration using an external audio...

    Yes, I have used it in the past too quite extensively in one of my older programs. Why don't you use it anymore? Is there a technical reason?

    Poll: Re: test title

    But is he? I have been told that he doesn't really exist, a mere figment of our imagination. Like Santa, he is a useful construct but nothing more. Regardless, I have zero opinions either way.

    That is impressive. Nicely formatted system information straight from the system shown in a web browser component I presume?

    Re: [RESOLVED] Playing music

    An easier method is to measure the track length of the music you wish to play. You do that manually using audacity. When you have the length in seconds you can add that to the filename.

  16. Re: VB6 Compiler Stopped Working ...

    I have a slightly similar issue with 32bit and 64 bit systems, if I load anything other than a 16 x 16 .ico into a project then it can have problems.
