    Re: Reference Versions

    That might be relevant, tangentially. I'm not quite sure what this dependent project really was or how it got in there. I don't think it was a dll conflict, though. I believe it was a dependent...

    Re: Should i learn VB6?

    I would say that it is to be consistent with C/C++ standards, though I don't know if that is true. Arrays all start at 0 in those languages, and so they do in .NET.

    I'm unclear on what we are...
  3. Re: Is the VB6 community capable to grab the bull by its horns?

    That's a telling point you make at the end, there. One of the issues I've had with any such alternative is: What is the business model around it?

    There appear to be a couple ways that a new...

    Re: Reference Versions

    Turns out, it was a total red herring. There was a reference in the proj file to a different project that no longer existed. Once I edited the proj file to get rid of those invalid references, the...

  6. VS 2019 Re: Forms, Data sources and not running on the UI

    The question of whether you should do the query in the UI thread or some other thread generally comes down to performance. If the query is quick, you might not even notice the time it takes, in which...
  7. VS 2019 Re: Need help with DrawEllipse() and Me.Refresh() and Label1.text

    What I would do is create the ellipses to a List(of Ellipse). That can be done either on load, or on a button click, depending on what you want to have happen. I'd use the button if I wanted the form...

    Re: Should i learn VB6?

    Sure, that's certainly true, and that's what a class would solve: Make it so that you don't have to remember.

    The point to keep in mind is that arrays are just a sequence of bytes that start at...

    I think you need to explain what your objective is.

    Re: Should i learn VB6?

    Technically, array bounds can never be negative, as the start of an array is some memory address, which itself can't be negative. So, to make it look like you have a negative bounds, you are taking...
  13. VS 2019 Re: Need help with DrawEllipse() and Me.Refresh() and Label1.text

    I don't totally agree with that...but having re-read the preceding points, I have no idea what the objective is. I can't see any scenario where post #7 makes any useful sense. Paint shouldn't be used...

  15. VS 2019 Re: Need help with DrawEllipse() and Me.Refresh() and Label1.text

    That's because you are not doing the drawing in the Paint event of the form. Refresh will force a paint, and that wipes out what you have done. Do all drawing in the Paint event, not in Load or...

    That's not true, but it IS very telling. Why isn't Linux on every desktop? I would say it is two things:

    2) Less software.

    The first is solvable, and may have already...
