Re: Crash bug when saving projects

By looking at the unfinished saved files it was pretty clear that the crash happened when saving the properties of the control. Since the listviews in your projects were working, I figured that if I compared them to new ones and change the new ones' settings to match "your", I should be ab...

Re: Crash bug when saving projects

I could reproduce it in a Virtual Machine with Windows XP and I could fix it. Windows 7 (maybe also Vista) seems to have some extra error checks when dealing with safe arrays, so it does not crash. I have another XP computer at work that I did the same test on, and same result. This machine is XP S...

Re: Crash bug when saving projects

I run Windows XP SP2 All I do is to create a new project, add ExplorerListView to the component list and draw a listview onto the form, and then save the form. The crash dialog says something about oleaut32.dll: AppName: vb6.exe AppVer: 6.0.97.82 ModName: oleaut32.dll ModVer: 5.1.2600.3139 Offset: 0...

Crash bug when saving projects

Hi Timo, I'm trying ExplorerListview (latest version) and found that it crashes when I try to save projects. I can open and save your sample projects, but if I add a new Listview to the form, or start a new project and put a single listview on the form, and then try to save it, the whole VB6 IDE cra...

Re: Why SetProcessDPIAware?

No, I also read that it was better to set this using the manifest instead, instead of using the api call. I've had a lot of problems with "large fonts" for my programs. There seems to be no way of stopping windows from scaling vb-apps. It has taken me a lot of time to make sure my programs...

Why SetProcessDPIAware?

In your samples you are calling SetProcessDPIAware(). How does this affect your controls and VB6 in general? I did some tests, but could not see any difference in the programs I tested. What is your experience?

Re: Problem with RSS feed

Looking at the error report in the validator link, you can see that the content of the feed is like this: <rss> </rss> <!DOCTYPE> <html> </html> So first is the rss feed, then an html document follows (why?). The error occurs at the DOCTYPE line. I suggest searching wordpress for an option to not in...

Re: Problem with RSS feed

I can't be 100% sure, but you recently changed the theme of the blog/frontpage, and it's quite possible that the problems started around then, if that can be of any help to you.

Problem with RSS feed

Hi,

My web browser Firefox has been unable to load your RSS feed lately. If I run it through the W3C feed validator it does not pass:

http://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi? ... %2Ffeed%2F

Just wanted to let you know about this problem.

Re: Thank you

Just to let you know, I just released my first program using your controls! Hot Spot Studio: http://www.rlvision.com/spots/about.asp This is a brand new app, so it was very easy to get started! My plan is to start using your controls in my old projects as well, but the conversion will take some time.

MakeMyManifest: Registry Free COM

I just found out a neat feature that really is helpful when distributing applications. Something that has always bothered me with VB6 is that you need to register all your components during installs. My wish has been to make "portable" applications. Today I discovered that it is possible b...

Changing tab using code

This is probably a stupid questions, but I've tried everything I can think of and nothing works. My question is very simple: How do you change the currently selected tab (programmatically)?

Re: Switching controls automatically

Like I said in my first post, I am not asking you to do this. I just wanted your input on how feasible such a utility would be. (I'm thinking about doing it myself, since I have projects with a lot of controls.)
