    Re: Activex without form

    But to clarify something: forget the idea that the problem is the form, and that you need to do it without a form.

    A form is a main window, a parent window, and you always need a window to show...

    I think you need to look in the forum for samples with UpdateLayeredWindow.

    Yes, you can use SetLayeredWindowAttributes with LWA_COLORKEY but I still don't know why you want to use such an outdated technology like Flash.

    Re: Activex without form

    Flash was phased out long time ago already.

    The second big question is why "without a form"?

    (Anyway the short answer is No).

  14. Re: [VB6] ScrollableContainer: a container (like a PictureBox) with scroll capability

    I don't understand the question, if you tested the demo.

    And how would you know if a day is holiday? That changes for every country. Or even in the same country it can change from one year to another.

    Re: Multiple listboxes

    Hello, welcome to the forum.

    That seems like you would need another control, like a grid instead of four listboxes.
