  1. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Doctors are losing patience trying to explain things to simple folk. It probably doesn't help when they read the comments people leave.

    Here's one of the cleaner ones, though he does approach...
  2. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    I don't think it is "polarized" because that implies two opposing sets of opinions. The only way you might swallow that is if you are so extreme that everyone else appears to oppose you, or maybe...

    The U.S. is not a monolith.

    Here we are still at very low new infection rates, no mask mandate, etc. That won't last because we are just starting to enter the Delta wave searing the south and...

    Re: [RESOLVED] Static Functions of VB6

    Friend should be used very sparingly. It is not meant as a surrogate for Public. It sort of works for passing non-published UDTs, except when it fails.

    The file version number of the OCX doesn't mean much. It really only exists for the use of deployment tools, and for it to have real meaning discipline is required.

    To be honest though, people manage that using VB just as frequently.

  28. Re: How to create a multires icon DLL with sizes up to 256x256 like shell32.dll?

    LoadLibrary() is good enough to load the DLL and get its hInstance (module handle). Ideally you will call FreeLibrary() to release it when you no longer need the module.

    Calling controls "objects" obscures the reality a bit. We have two words for a reason. Controls must implement additional interfaces, and that's what makes them controls.
