    Re: Ok, DB connection.. What gives?

    Darn...when I edited this post, it removed all my comments, and just added the second image.

    Anyway, comment out that line...I no longer use gCoinYear, I use release Date instead of just the year.
    After that, you obviously do not have the vbFlexGrid control (I use version 1.6---available on line...search for it)). You will have to replace the PICTUREBOX on the main form which VB6 replaced the 'missing' grid control with. Here are the IDE properties for you to set once you have done that:
    Name: grid1
    BackColorBkg: &H00FF0000& (just copy that from frmMain.backcolor)
    Cols: 2
    Fixed Cols: 0
    Height: 4500
    Left: 5175
    Rows: 1
    Top: 3150
    Width: 9525

    Then, when you have done all that (that is a vbFlexGrid, NOT an MSFlexGrid), run it. When you click on that grid, you will see the information form, it will look like these two examples:

    Re: Ok, DB connection.. What gives?

    I am not going to 'fix' my images of the coins. I manually copied (using the Snipping Tool) all 127 images from websites...that is why they are not "all the same size". However, using Stretch True in images, they WILL be the same size when you run the program, even though they are not in the directory. (because I created them to be 'about' the same size, I did not use a picturebox (which does not have a stretch property), but an image control as well.)) So yeah, I am very familiar with both controls...I don't need a class on them, I don't think. :-)

    anyway...get that vbFlexGrid control (I'm using version 1.6, but if you can only find 1.3, or another, I am sure it will work just fine)...Just rename it to grid1 once you replace that picturebox with it.

    Re: Ok, DB connection.. What gives?

    To save you a lot of hassle, I redid the frmMain to use an MSFlexGrid instead of a vbFlexGrid. The MSFlexGrid IS in your list of components...

    Here...unzip this into your path where you have my quarters program.

    Made a new change....(and updated the DB with temporary dates for the American Women Quarters for 2024 and 2025). Change was the capability for user to change Release Dates (would be necessary once the remaining 24 and 25 American Women Quarters are produced.

    Re: Ok, DB connection.. What gives?

    Well, I can't say I agree with the 3 table - (middle pic) in #84 as there is more than those 3 sets.. presidential, territorial and so and so on.. best just having 1 table.. this is what I want to use the menu checkmark thing to come into play as you have seen in my version.. and I didn't find the flexgrid control yet so atm yer app is unrunable to me. However, keep up with the updates.

    Anyways, I just bought $3k custom gaming pc and have to wait a week or 2 - (hopefully just 1 week) for it to come in and try to install vb 6 on it. It comes with windows 11 unfortunately, but I have a partioning app that I "could" put windows 10. So, i'll get back to this then.

    Re: Ok, DB connection.. What gives?

    I am not going to ‘keep up with updates’. You don’t like what I did, so be it. As far as the flexgrid, I already told you I replaced my vbFlexGrid with the inherent MSFlexgrid. Everything DOES work the way it should. As I have said several times, throw away what I did if you want-I do not care. I have given you lots of code which should help you design your own project. As far as that screen you mentioned, SO easy to modify to add additional quarter collections.

    this time, FOR SURE, I am out of here.

    good luck with whatever path you want to follow.

    Re: Ok, DB connection.. What gives?

    That's fine.. However, I do have 1 question.. WHY do you have ID1 - (auto number) & ID for women quarters, but not the same for the other tables? I mean each one came out first , second third and so on in each set... But you only have it for 1 table and not the other 2.. I see certain things I could have done better in MY DB, but the counts of each coin produced will not be one of them. However, back to the original question...

    Since yer "outta here for this time for sure".. i highly doubt it.. Guess the question will not be answered.

    Re: Ok, DB connection.. What gives?

    Funny, i'm in high school and this dude is more than likely way older than me and more than likely doesn't even collect coins.. steals MY app project to make his own because he thinks it has merit.. Maybe he can't come up with his own project ideas. but doesn't like the original design and says: "keep asking questions for help on MY version of the app", yet he turns around and says he's "outta here" because he can say he doesn't agree with MY design, but the minute I say I don't agree with his. Yet I still catch him looking at the thread.. LOL.

    Yet, he still won't answer the last question I asked in #89..

    Him as a Coder "maybe".. Chidish behavior, definately! I really was starting to think he was a nice guy.

    you sound like a guy that collects CardSets, a ghost from the past
    to hunt a species to extinction is not logical !
    since 2010 the number of Tigers are rising again in 2016 - 3900 were counted. with Baby Callas it's 3901, my wife and I had 2-3 months the privilege of raising a Baby Tiger.

    Huh? CardSets? I collect wheat pennies whenever I come across them and star notes.

    Re: Ok, DB connection.. What gives?

    I'm still trying to figure out what a "CardSet" is that you are referring to - Is that playing cards? I've seen gold ones, silver ones, glow in the dark, large playing cards for sale. I don't play many card games. I do enjoy a good game of: canasta, poker and solitaire time to time tho.

    Oh, and black jack.. Those are those are the only card games I play.

    Re: Ok, DB connection.. What gives?

    Why choose to create this in VB6 in the first place? If this was 20 years ago it would make sense, but there are free and easier to learn languages that I would have expected students to use instead nowadays.

    Because it's what I have and I think it's pretty cool. I don't care if it's an old software.. I'm not a major coder to have a need for more fancy software or real need to upgrade it. It was a free PC with it installed.

    Yes, I did buy a new custom gaming PC and waiting for it.. That doesn't mean I will upgrade to something new if I just want to build a few projects.. It's not like i'm trying to create major apps here.

    but there are free and easier to learn languages that I would have expected students to use instead nowadays.
    We don't have a coding class/course in my school - (the school is more into sports and general education, with a chemistry lab - we do have a PC room, but not for coding.. Basic typing class and such).. However, please feel free to list them so I can look into them and see if they are something I would be interested in.. I doubt it but i'll look into them.

    We also have gymnastics and band as well as photography.. Nothing really more honestly.

    Re: Ok, DB connection.. What gives?

    WOOT! My brand new custom gaming PC came in and I pick it tomorrow cause they are closed now.. I'll install vb6 on it and continue with the project in a few days cause I have to save stuff from both of my old PC's onto my firelite.. I guess it doesn't matter nobody here cares anyways.. Just saying I've been holding off on this project til I get my new custom gaming PC.

    Ok, so I have my new custom PC, however.. I did not save my email info and forum login info, so I had to create a new acct, unless Shaggy can help me get my old one back in a PM.. Otherwise, this will be my new acct.
