How do you go about selecting each individual character from a string.

For example, I only want the value of the four right hand characters on a string I will not know the length of. It sounds like an easy thing to answer, but I just can't figure it out.

Thanks for all help, in advance.

Char To Byte To Char
I have to change a Byte type array into a String.

dim carddata(16) as byte
dim blockbuffer as string

For i = 0 To 15
Blockbuffer = Blockbuffer + Chr(sData(i))
Next i

Then I try to get it back via

For i = 0 To 15
sData(i) = Asc(Mid(Blockbuffer, i + 1, 1))
Next i

I found that I cannot get it back if some of the sData(i) value is greater than 128.

Can someone tell me how should I correct the problem?

Line By Line Search, Instead Of Char By Char.. (Resolved)
I have a file I'm trying to parse through. It's an ASX-style (although not exactly ASX) file.

I'm "plucking" entries out of it.. <entry> blah blah </entry>

Currently, I read the file into a textbox or string (textbox simply because it's visual, but a string works just as well) and then do a single char by char search through the entire string. Obviousl this can take a LONG time on larger files. Very, very ineffecient.

Is there a way to automatically chunk each line from a multiline textbox (or string using vbcrlf's)?

An example of how i'm currently doing it..

VB Code:
Text1.Text = ReadFile(FileName) Dim xX As Long For xX = 1 To Len(Text1.Text)If LCase(Mid(Text1.Text, xX, 7)) = "<entry>" Then(Do something)End Ifnext xX

Just wondering if anyone can make a suggestion on how to do this properly, as compared to my backwards-assed way.


(Yes, i'm aware thre's some form of ASX API or functionality. Not interested, as learning how to do this will apply to other file read functions, not just ASX stuff.)

Showing Up Char
I'm trying to display a second character for a DX game editing the copy and paste code for the sub to show the main character. Allthought i relly can't figure how to display the character @ the right x and y. I've been working on it for 3 hours and a half stair and can't figure out so I'm posting here, here the code:

Public Sub DrawPlayerData()
'line to display character
BltPlayer Body, BodyRECT, DDBLTFAST_SRCCOLORKEY Or DDBLTFAST_WAIT 'puts the body image at the players x and y coords
BltPlayer Head, HeadRECT, DDBLTFAST_SRCCOLORKEY Or DDBLTFAST_WAIT, 3, -21 'places the head a little about the x and y coords
End Sub
Public Sub BltPlayer(ByRef surf As DirectDrawSurface7, ByRef SrcRect As RECT, _
ByVal trans As CONST_DDBLTFASTFLAGS, Optional xOffset As Single, Optional yOffset As Single)
Dim x As Single, y As Single
Dim temprect As RECT

Call GetPlayerPosReMap(x, y)
x = x + xOffset: y = y + yOffset
temprect = SrcRect 'because we can't pass rects byval _
we need to store it to reset it later on

'Here we check if the persons too far left and adjust
If x <= 0 Then SrcRect.left = SrcRect.left - x
If (x + SrcRect.Right - SrcRect.left) >= 640 Then _
SrcRect.Right = SrcRect.left + (640 - x)
x = IIf(x < 0, 0, x)

'Here we check if the persons too far right and adjust
If y <= 0 Then = - y
If (y + SrcRect.Bottom - >= 480 Then _
SrcRect.Bottom = + (480 - y)
y = IIf(y < 0, 0, y)

'Blt the whole thing
ddsBackBuffer.BltFast x, y, surf, SrcRect, trans

'Then copy rect rect back over
SrcRect = temprect
End Sub
Any help is greatly appresiated

Parenthesis Char Value
Does anyone know how I can do this:

OpenParPosition = InStr(0, MyString, "(")

vba (though I assume vb6 would to) freaks... presumably because of the parenthesis. Can i search for the char values, and if so is there a link to a list of char values.

Thanks so much in advance

Non-Printable Char
Hey guys,
I was sent a flat text file filled with data I have to read into a database.
I am using the standard open statment with a line-input.
Problem is, about half-way through the file, there is an odd character, ascii value 26, that causes it to stop reading from file. I only get the data up to that point in the file, I cant get the rest. If I could only read the data out I would replace any odd characters, but, it wont even let me read past the point of that non-printable character.

Any ideas? I am really stuck.

Password Char
Hi everyone.

I've been trying to make an validation form, and i've reached a problem.

I'd like to have a * as a password char, and that's ok with TextBoxes, but i wanted to have a #### mask on the TextBox.

So i used a MskEdBox, that belong to the Microsoft MaskEditor component. But then i didn't now how to make password chars!

What i wanted to know is how to make masks on a normal TextBox, or how to make password chars on a MaskEdBox.

And by the way, a naive question.

How do i check the lenght of the text on a textbox? Kinda forgot.

Thanks for the atention.

Splitting After A Certain Last Char.
Okay, I have a browse button, and the person browses for a song, and pushes ok. The direct link to the music file is put inside a textbox. E.g.

C:Documents and SettingsMyUsernameMy DocumentsMy MusicSecondhand Jive - Lucky.mp3

I want to split off the Secondhand Jive - Lucky.mp3 part using the last splitter in that file name, ... So in otherwords, i want my split command to split the text using the last in the file name (text is located in the text box), leaving me just the Secondhand Jive - Lucky.mp3 in a new text box.

IDEA: Split text with the last "".

Thanks for any help. Sources and/or codes are VERY appreciated.. thanks.
