  1. Re: Problem with VB6 ComboBox with style "DropDown List"

    Sure, but I've seen no end-user which uses this feature (I personally use it all the time) while in "DropDown Combo" style with sorted list all the end-users can "guess" that you can actually type in...

    Re: [RESOLVED] WIA Automation

    You would be probably better off with your own (simple) custom GDI+ wrapper class instead of trying to transfer byte-arrays back and forth between WIA and GDI+ I suppose.

  11. Re: Unable to select multiple controls using CTRL or SHIFT click

    This is a side-effect of using a manifest on the IDE with comctls version 6 referenced.

    You'll have to get used to it or drop the IDE manifest altogether.

    Use manifest for your IDE or test your project compiled to EXE w/ manifest.

    There is no MsgBox ďHello 2Ē in the short-circuit OR sample above so it has to be the same code in both cases.

  15. Re: VB6 QUESTION: Non-Modal message box in its own thread

    MSDN says flat out right that WinExec is left only for compatibility with source codes for 16-bit apps.

  30. Re: VB6 QUESTION: Methods for finding a memory leak.

    Flat GDI+ is particularly dangerous as there is no monitoring API built-in and for bookkeeping C++ wrappers depend on language RAII which will hurt performance if reimplemented with VB6/COM classes.
