  1. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    lol...
  2. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    That's pretty cool.
  3. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    lol....What merits? This is the entire point. There is none I can see which is what all this is ultimately about for me.
  4. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    lol...the .Net ecosystem can cover all that by itself. No need to be jumping around between all these different technologies. To each his own I guess.
  5. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    If he really wants to keep it VB6, he can use Olaf's RichClient framework. I think I recall seeing him post some code that utilized a very simple in memory database he built into the framework.
  6. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    It would take all of 10 minutes to produce .Net code that could spawn a web server in one line. I've even done it years ago in VB6 with pure TCP sockets using that awful Winsock control. Took a...
  7. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    Oh yea. That works too. Brute forcing VB6 into these worlds is just a colossal waste of time. Better to just use the tools that are made for it. I'd even go as far as saying that Java might just be...
  8. Re: VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    Lemme touch on this real quick:-



    Here is a very simple, very basic HTTP Server written in plain old boring VB.Net code:-

    Imports System
    Imports System.Net

    Module Program
  9. Re: VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    Not mad at you. Like I said, I don't practice telling people what they want to hear. I answered your question as honestly as I could. It's up to you whether you find value in it or not. You are free...
  10. Re: VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    I'm real tired of arguing these same old points so I'll just say this: If you enjoy painting a house using a hammer, good for you but I'll never suggest to anyone that they indulge themselves in such...

    Re: About array

    UDTs are bare metal structures, VARIANTS and COM classes are not. I'd say 90% of the time it's better to use classes. However, if you need bleeding edge performance, use UDTs. UDTs are directly...

    You're making this way harder than it needs to be. You can easily implement the behavior you want by utilizing a global variable accessible by all instances of the class. It could be a simple...

    I really wish I didn't have move to the web but at this point it seems inevitable, at least for us. People are asking for things that require too much gymnastics to implement in a desktop...

    I'll still be around here. I will still be using .Net and Visual Studio after all, but I just won't be using VB anymore, nor will I be writing desktop applications.

  21. Re: [RESOLVED] Directly call the classes in the .NET base lib (mscorlib.dll) in VB6

    Oh I wasn't addressing the problem of overloads in particular.
  22. Re: [RESOLVED] Directly call the classes in the .NET base lib (mscorlib.dll) in VB6

    Back when I just started with .Net I used to use a program called .Net Reflector that could decompile .Net DLLs and show you all it's internals including public classes. At the time it was the most...
  23. Re: [RESOLVED] Directly call the classes in the .NET base lib (mscorlib.dll) in VB6

    Oh....Append_3, that's why it didn't work for me. I was trying to use Append. Good to know.
  24. Re: [RESOLVED] Directly call the classes in the .NET base lib (mscorlib.dll) in VB6

    Very interesting. I hadn't thought about trying this. I assumed OP did and it didn't work.

    However, this doesn't seem to work for all classes. For example it doesn't work for the StringBuilder but...
  25. Re: [RESOLVED] Directly call the classes in the .NET base lib (mscorlib.dll) in VB6

    There is no straight forward way to do this that I'm aware of. .Net and COM are fundamentally incompatible. This is why COM Interop was created. It might be possible to achieve something like this by...

  28. Re: Mapping between C# and VB6 (C# to VB6)

    They have an implementation of delegates in there. At a glance it looks like they are using the raw IUnknown interface of some kind of COM object to implement delegates. Not sure how that is meant to...

  30. Re: Mapping between C# and VB6 (C# to VB6)

    You could implement an Int64 type relatively easy if you wanted in VB6. The problem is that you cannot override operators in VB6 so you won't be able to use it like built-in primitives like Longs and...

    (1) Use Long in VB6. IntPtr is a .Net data type that is used to represent pointers. It is a 64 bit value in a 64 bit process and it's 32 bits when running in a 32 bit process.
