  1. VB6 QUESTION: Quickest way to initialise an array

    In VB6 we don't have:

    DIM myString as STRING = "Dumbledore"

    So we cannot initialise a string var without an extra assignment:

    DIM myString as STRING
    myString = "Dumbledore"

    I do try to...
  2. Re: VB6 QUESTION: Providing Documentation for your Utility.

    Looking into it deeper and I find it is actually Wanda herself. She is an animated PNG. I close her down and the tooltips re-appear. It is to do with the way that Xwidget renders animated PNGs, so I...
  3. Re: VB6 QUESTION: Providing Documentation for your Utility.

    The tooltips worked immediately I disabled the tool that I had removed before.

    It should always run in quirks mode and any 'advances' or changes to original spec. should be switched on an individual basis, item by item, flag by flag.

    How strange, some digging at my end required.

    Ah. My memory is working... I have had a tooltip problem before on this machine, some three or four months ago. It runs another product that...
  10. Re: VB6 QUESTION: Providing Documentation for your Utility.

    Elroy, you missed my question. Just tried your balloon tooltip code on a completely new and empty VB6 project and it seems not to generate any tooltips at all. Strange, I must be missing something.

    No, no, no. In an emergency you can wrap a z80 circuit board in lead sheets very quickly and run it down to the cellar. The future is 8bit not 32.

    Re: Extending VB6

    That worries me. RADBasic takes a different approach, continue to use the VB6 IDE and then compile to 64 using a plug in.

    Well, I'd agree with that and still say it is - closer due to that additional complexity. You need to know what is going on and you learn what the O/S might be doing by working with that API.
