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

    Has the core functionality always been more or less the same? What was the development machine under win95, do you remember?

    I remember using a directory differences tool under open VMS years ago...
  2. Re: Getting the ball rolling. Which VB6 projects are you working on?

    2009 isn't so bad, it is only 12 years! Is there an English language version? What do you see the editor being used for specifically, when completed? What was the working environment in that time?

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

    First class stuff, didn't know it existed, very useful! Are you still keeping it updated? I think I could use it.
    Your development environment must have changed over the years from the days of...

    Thanks for raising this post from the dead, sometimes a little gem re-emerges.

    That is actually very similar to what I did originally, checking against a list of known apps and comparing the Window's caption text but I did not have a method of determining whether the process...
  14. Re: VB6 QUESTION: how to identify processes in the systray

    Dragokas, I do like the function GetIconHandles, it is nothing like anything I would have come up with myself. It is delving into areas I would never have dived... Is that code all yours? I found...
  15. Re: How to implement chart - Cairo/RC5 or other?

    Rather than talk anymore, I thought the point needed to be made.
  16. Re: How to implement chart - Cairo/RC5 or other?

    It's not about me. The site is wrong, that's it. That's all there is. Fix it, go on.
  17. Re: Getting the ball rolling. Which VB6 projects are you working on?

    Your knowledge of colloquial English is impressive.
  18. Re: VB6 QUESTION: how to identify processes in the systray

    I'll see what I can do - your help is really appreciated and unexpectedly complete! Thanks.

    Well, we are all very well adjusted then... and we can sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labours.

    PS. I'd be happy to help too but I feel what I could offer would be minimal. Some advice as to...
  21. Re: How to implement chart - Cairo/RC5 or other?

    The point that you are all missing is that the website implies abandonment and it also implies no documentation by the lack of that documentation.

    That's what websites do. They tell people...
  22. Re: How to implement chart - Cairo/RC5 or other?

    No-one is demanding anything of him. No-one really cares if his site is out of date, it just means less potential users.

    The idea of someone using an undocumented framework that seems to have had...
  23. Re: How to implement chart - Cairo/RC5 or other?

    Nobody thinks you are lying. My suggestion to you would be to collate what documentation exists for RC5 and to pull it together for future usage by potential users. You seem to know a little about it...
  24. Re: How to implement chart - Cairo/RC5 or other?

    I'm not denying that, however, it has nothing to do with the site being out of date and having no documentation. It will put people off making that decision to jump into RC5.

  25. Re: How to implement chart - Cairo/RC5 or other?

    That was a bit silly jb. If the site were mine I would face the criticism and update the site. IF I had put the work in that Olaf has into RC5 I would realise that the documentation and the site...
  26. Re: How to implement chart - Cairo/RC5 or other?

    Unfortunately, search...only, that is not really the solution to the problem, your suggestion is a mere workaround to the problem.

    If you have a site it is intended to give a message, the message...
  27. Re: How to implement chart - Cairo/RC5 or other?

    I hear what the OP is saying though. The points he raised are the same reasons that prevented me diving into RC5. When next to nothing is documented and the website is so obsolete it gives the...

    With regard to a 'new' machine. I never buy new to the shops as it simply takes cash from the pockets of those that care to lose it easily and readily.

  33. Re: VB6 QUESTION: how to identify processes in the systray

    OK, so it is possible to do the same for XP, I will just see if I can adapt your code to cater for XP as well. Thanks for the code and the insights too. Really appreciated.
