    I'm going to have to go watch that movie again, aren't I? I don't have the time, at the moment. I have no memory of whatever you are referring to.

    Re: code conversion from vb.net to vb6.0

    I felt the JSON stuff was potentially useful, but also not at all on topic. The OP was asking about converting some XML code. If people don't want to use XML that's fine, but it still exists, still...

    Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Nope, it's DOA. That bill is just political grandstanding. It's unlikely to even make it out of committee, and will fail in the house.

    Sorry about that. I just felt it was going nowhere good at a high rate of speed. You can reopen if you'd like.

    Re: Disable handler until code complete.

    What you are wanting to happen is normally the default behavior, so something is a bit odd.

    If you trigger some event handler, that will normally be ALL the UI is capable of doing. A second...

    Why did you wrap the messagebox in an exception handler? Was that just a mistake? Wrapping file handling in an exception handler makes sense, but not just the messagebox.

    Re: Default properties for forms.

    Sub classing the form would do it, also. If you ALWAYS (or at least very often) set property X to value Y, then just create a new form derived from the base form and set the property in the derived...
  16. Re: VB .NET Split to catch exact value from txt file

    I haven't used the textFieldParser approach. I'd be inclined to just read in the string, Split on ","c. This would create an array of strings, and you'd want the fourth element of the array.
