    Re: Should i learn VB6?

    I'd recommend C# as well as Java. Visual Basic whether it's VB6 or VB.Net are not taken seriously by the rest of the world. Rust is one of the newest languages taking the world by storm and seems to...
  3. Re: how can copy contents from websites or otherapp like as unicode in IDE vb6?

    I'm pretty sure that VB6 IDE can only understand 8 bit ANSI Strings. Visual Studio 6 was created when Windows itself was still largely an ANSI operating system. If you want to use Unicode Strings you...
  4. Re: Is there anyway to build x64 exe by vb6ís compiler?

    64 bit compilation is generally overrated. Unless you're dealing with arrays over 2 GB consistently in your application or trying to use 64 bit DLLS, you really don't benefit from 64 bit compilation....

    If that's the case then just avoid all that entirely and use GetClientRect/GetWindowRect with SetWindowPos to position all your Controls.
