  1. Re: [RESOLVED] Logic Help (Recode Select Case to Function)

    The Mod operator does an integer divide and returns the integer remainder.
    If you subtract the remainder from the original number that will "round down" the original number to a multiple of the...
  2. Re: Logic Help (Recode Select Case to Function)

    You could try a function like this.
    Don't know that it will cover all cases. 12 in the function is the STD_COL_WIDTH value, so you may want to add that Constant. I just wrote this quick and didn't...
  3. Re: Logic Help (Recode Select Case to Function)

    Yes, Arnoutdv didn't see that myFactor is not always a difference of 4 since it covers a difference within a range of 4. Also, it isn't actually a difference of 4 from myFactor, since myFactor is the...

    Re: Loading music files

    But for an example you don't need to include songs you would prefer to listen to, you just need placeholders, like you did anyway, and they don't have to be large.

    VS 2015 Re: Change media player to visible

    Usually when you load a file in the media player, it defaults to autostart playing that file.
    So, it seems like it would be simple to not load the file until you want to play it, i.e. at the end of...
  6. Re: GWBasic code optimization question->

    I don't understand. You said you wrote it in Quick Basic 4.5, but you didn't create an executable to run the game?
    So, you always ran it from the IDE?

    Even if that is the case, it was still...
  7. Re: GWBasic code optimization question->

    You're saying Quick Basic 4.5, which produces a Compiled executable.
    GWBASIC is Interpreted so it is going to be much slower. I would think minimally it would be at 10x slower on most things and...
  8. Re: winmm.dll mciSendString - How to loop from specific song point?

    My mistake. I misread your second post. Rereading, the last part of the first sentence still is a little confusing to me.
    Also, I didn't follow the link and look at the project, so my bad. I think...
  9. Re: winmm.dll mciSendString - How to loop from specific song point?

    You provided a full working example of a media player, but the original poster already said he was using mciSendString to play an mp3 file repeatedly, so I assume he already has the declaration and...
  10. Re: winmm.dll mciSendString - How to loop from specific song point?

    I don't know that you can automate it, but if you know at what point you want to loop back to, you can use "seek media" and "play media" to start at a particular point. If you monitor where you are,...

    Re: Post Race!

    I believe in most cases it would be a sleeve, not a string. And a lot of guitar strings are made from wire, so they would be air without the wire. Can you have nylon wire?

    We call that an air guitar.
    Having a wireless guitar cord on the other hand would be handy to connect the guitar output to an amplifier without a cable.

    Re: Zooming a picture in a picture box

    First off, it seems like you got your scale factors reversed.
    You're multiplying by 1.2 to "Enlarge", but if you multiply a scale, so you have more scale, that means you have more picture in the...

    If you use wpf forms instead of winforms, then you can have auto control layouts so the controls scale to fit the space.

    I imagine you didn't increase the size of the picture by an integral amount, i.e. 71 * 1.5 is 106.5 and a picture can't be 106.5 pixels wide. It is either 106 or 107.

  26. Re: How do I Automatically update a text box, using a NumbericUpDown Box

    You have to call the code to update the textbox in the ValueChanged event handler of the NumericUpDown control.
    That means the code to update the textbox should be put in its own method so that it...
  27. Re: How do you work out the difference between two dates.

    There are a number of ways you could do this.

    You can't change the ForeColor of a Graphical Command Button. Command buttons don't support ForeColor.

  33. Re: Moving an object again, Maybe not an object

    I assume it doesn't make sense to you because you are drawing in the picDest pictureboxes. I am not drawing in the picDest pictureboxes, so setting AutoRedraw to True is wasted for the way I do it....
  34. Re: Moving an object again, Maybe not an object

    .picDest(1-13) should never be drawn into, so AutoRedraw shouldn't be set for those, it would be a waste. (same for .picDest(0)).
    If setting .picDest(0) AutoRedraw property to True fixed anything,...
  35. Re: Moving an object again, Maybe not an object

    I'm not sure what you've done at this point.
