DisabledForeColor does not work

It seems DisabledBackColor works but not DisabledForeColor for quite some time now?

I tried both at runtime and during design of the control... It's on windows 7 but I don't think that's important.

Re: Resource Leak

Thank you again!

Looks great so far on tests, doesn't even take resources on load.

Resource Leak

Hello again, When setting the MouseIcon, the label control doesn't release the GDI/User resources after it closes. The fact that it takes up a bunch of resources is not the main issue (although fewer resources would be nice too) - it's that it doesn't release them. Attached is a simple sample. Click...

Re: Install: Extract COM Information

I understand the decision based on priority. Actually, I just found a workaround for anyone that needs such information on this forum: It seems that the alternative 'Self-Registration' option works fine without any error message AND it seems to uninstalls the reg info as well, so all is solved. Inst...

Install: Extract COM Information

I added the LblCtlsU.OCX to an InstallShield installer and, as I do with every OCX file, I specified that it should 'Extract COM Information' from this control so that it will install and uninstall the controls cleanly. This resulted in an error in installshield by regtlib.exe "windows cannot access...

Re: Click Bug

No problems. Been testing and it looks stable. Thanks!

There was a crash in the IDE when I set autosize to -1 instead of 1 by mistake due to the migration, but that isn't your problem.

Re: Click Bug

Very creative solution! Good one. It almost works perfectly. But I think there is one little bug in the logic left over. I am attaching a sample that demonstrates the problem: This time click on the second label and try the +/- buttons to make it bigger/smaller. You'll see that sometimes when you cl...

Re: Click Bug

I don't need MouseLeave for now but I or someone else may need it in the future obviously. I suppose you could add an option to switch between these two modes. It is better than me having to calculate which control is currently sitting over the label as I would have to loop over perhaps a hundred of...

Re: Click Bug

Well I found this because I have this specific interface with labels and small icons overlaying the labels so that the users can perform actions related to each 'label'. In other words, in my original case, the icons are completely 'contained' within the label, except they no longer receive click ev...

Click Bug

Sorry...found another bug. Hope this isn't a tricky one. The label control grabs clicks even for controls that are on top of it. Interestingly, it only does it after you click on it. I.e. run the attached, click on the image that is overlapping the label, but do this either after you clicked on the ...

Mouse Pointer Bugs

Two bugs with the label and mouse pointers... I attached an example but they are very simple: - Setting a mousepointer only works within a certain pixel range and has no effect anywhere else on the label (second label has an hourglass set) - Setting a mousepointer on a control NEXT to the label and ...

Re: Strange graphics bug

Looking great on my tests so far. It even fixed this new label refresh issue that I was trying to reproduce and report to you. Thanks! I don't think I've ever used Microsoft API or programmed an addon in a Microsoft environment without regretting it. Their complexities, quirks and bugs know no bound...

Re: Strange graphics bug

The new label control seems to be calling all the public Refresh functions on my controls and forms now. The trouble is, I use these Refresh functions for other purposes besides painting. Is there any way to switch this behaviour off? For now I changed the functions to Friend instead of Public and t...

Re: Big VB6 Project Mystery

I found it. I had missed a few event handlers that didn't match the event parameters of your label controls (e.g. Click with a control array). This was still weird behaviour for the IDE since it usually just pops up an error instead of freezing. But this was the cause and it now works fine. There ar...
