  1. VB6 QUESTION: How many here have rolled their own msgbox dialog boxes?

    I have found the standard msgbox dialog box to be limited in how I can control it. I rolled my own from a simple lookalike form with my own icons. I can place it where I like and style it too, some...
  2. Re: Getting the ball rolling. Which VB6 projects are you working on?

    I have a working VB.NET version of the icon Settings tool, just the one on the right but I largely gave up on it one third of the way through. It is now so out-of-touch with the VB6 version that it...

    It was a F-type Faqhuart Mk F powered entirely by high temperature methane, forced under compression from the back boiler. Very common here.

    The 75 was a delight to drive, BMW electrics that cured any electrical reliability problems that Rover had, a body that won't rust, leather interior to die for. A silky smooth V6 that had all the...

    My usual response. I imagine the engineering is in place to allow them to all be re-sited for those revolutionaries that wish to disrupt the normal passage of traffic.

    Still, a nice looking car...

    Re: Cars we had, and now have

    That's roughly right. It was a 1971 Vauxhall, therefore it was rusting, the engine was tired and we had a biggish hole already dug. My friend's land was ex-municipal land (he had bought the old...

    I did have a British Racing Green with a yellow mouth bonnet MKII spitfire that I broke for parts and its number plate was GUV 381 C.

    Wish I had kept it but it was SO rusty.

    I am just over 6ft, and trust me, the Spittie has plenty of leg room. This particular roomy aspect is assisted by the fact that it has no roof, so to get in and out, you merely need to stand up.
