Count Number Of Lines In Textbox
I saw the code of counting number of lines in textbox somewhere, but I don't really understand the main part of that code, could you give me some explanations please!
Private Declare Function SendMessage Lib "user32" _
Alias "SendMessageA" _
(ByVal hwnd As Long, _
ByVal wMsg As Long, _
ByVal wParam As Long, _
lParam As Any) As Long
Private Const EM_GETLINECOUNT = &HBA
lineCount = SendMessage(Text1.hwnd, EM_GETLINECOUNT, 0&, ByVal 0&)
1. what the "0&, ByVal 0&" means? I am always confusing about this part?
2. Why do we have to declare EM_GETLINECOUNT as a constant "&HBA", could we declare it as something else, say "&H100" or others?
many many thanks

Stupidly simple question, I know. But I can't seem to find a easy and fast, efficient way of counting the number of lines in a text file.

Count Number Of Lines In A Project And Insert Line Numbers
Please do not post anything if you don't want to download it.
Please test my Add-in Dll to vb which counts the number of lines, adds Line numbers to module and also removes them.
You can select which module you want to add the lines and also which modules you want to count.
Just download the dll and register.
Please post any feedback.
Thanks for testing.
PS Anyone posting REAL feedback will get the final release for free.
Number Of Lines In Textbox
How to get number of lines in Textbox (Multiline property is True)? I remember stumbling upon a method or function that returns exactly that, but that's been ages ago and for the life of me I can't find it again in MSDN (which has one of the most useless search options in the world).
Thanks in advance.

SOLVED : Max Number Of Lines In A Textbox ?
First of all, Sorry to all of you. I had deletted this thread to fast by accident.
MartinLiss : I have read your reply, but it was to difficult for me, i dont realy understand that piece of code. Thanks anyway.
The problem i have is the following :
I need to set the maximum number of lines for a textbox.
The textbox i have must be limmited to 5 lines/rules so that the user cant type on and on when the 5 lines ar full.
Is there realy no easy way to do this ? or is there a other textbox with this function ?
(It's just the same idea as that you can set the maxlengt, but now i need to set the maxlines)
I hope one of you can help me with this.
Maximum Number Of Lines In Textbox
I have a template in word which i want to populate automatically.
Its setup so it automatically wraps text horizontally
but it can only have a maximum of 25 lines!
From my vb program i want the user to fill in a textbox which will automaticlaly get transferred to the word document.
I've set the width of the textbox to the correct width so it matches the word template.
The only thing I can't figure out is how do I stop the textbox from accepting more characters once the 25 lines is reached???

Limit Textbox To A Specific Number Of Lines
I set a textbox to multiline and further, I need these
1. Multiline textbox wraps the text. Instead I need to insert vbCrLf characters at the end of each line if user did not insert it pressing return manually. So I need to check each line if it has a vbCrLf at the end and place one if missing (Cause I will save the textbox content to a file and I need a delimiter for the lines to be able to pick and read a unique line from the file)
2. I need to limit the line number to 11as maximum. I can do it
counting vbCrLf if I can solve question Nr:1 though.
I can also use any other approach as basically I need to save 11 lines of textbox to a text file and be able to read any given line back.
Thanks for any help.

Count # Of Lines In A File?
I am making a game, and info is stored in a text file. I need to know how many lines are in the text file, and it will never be a "set number".
Is there anyway to quickly count the lines? Currently, I am reading the file and increasing a counter, and then reading the file again for the data. Another option I thought about was to write the number of lines to the first line in the file (-1 of course... since you don't want that piece of info).
Any more information or suggestions would help!

How Do I Count Fields In Lines Of Data?
I have a text data file that contains tab-delimited data. What I need to do is to make a routine that goes through the data and tells me whether each line has the correct number of fields in it. Each line should have eight fields, all tab-separated.
For the life of me, I can't seem to wrap my head around what most likely is something really simple. If anyone out there can possibly help, I'd be most appreciative.
Thank you to all who reply.... looking forward to it!

Count Lines In Text File
What is the fastest way to determine how many lines of data are in a text file?
This text file is about 200 Mb in size, so looping through the entire file is unacceptable, since it takes about 2 minutes to do on this clunker of a machine!
Is there a better way?
How Do I Count The Lines In A RichEdit Control?
I need to see how many lines are in a RichEdit control in my program. It Delphi i could get it by saying RichEdit1.Lines.Count but don't see anything similar in VB yet. Any suggestions?

Read And Count Lines In A Text Box
Often, you may need to know how many lines of text there are in
a multi-line textbox. While Visual Basic makes it easy to determine
how many paragraphs the textbox contains, using code like so:
Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim myParas As Variant
myParas = Split(Text1, vbNewLine)
MsgBox UBound(myParas) + 1
This code, as you can see, only parses out hard carriage returns;
whereas you want to know how many lines of text the control contains.
To accomplish this task, you'll need to resort to the SendMessageAsLong()
API function. This function conforms to the following syntax:
Private Declare Function SendMessageAsLong Lib "user32" _
Alias "SendMessageA" (ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, _
ByVal wParam As Long, ByVal lParam As Long) As Long
To obtain the number of lines, you pass in the EM_GETLINECOUNT
constant in the wMsg parameter. Declare this constant like this:
Const EM_GETLINECOUNT = 186
Finally, to use the function, pass in the handle to the textbox
from which you want to retrieve the line count, as well as the
wMsg we mentioned earlier. Example code might look like so:
Private Sub Command2_Click()
Dim lCount As Long
lCount = SendMessageAsLong(Text1.hWnd, EM_GETLINECOUNT, 0, 0)

How To Count Visual Lines In A Word Document??
I am trying to count the number of visual lines, or the number of lines that have visible characters on it in a word document. I can easily get the total number of lines in the document but am having trouble getting only the visual ones. Here is what I have so far.
Code: Public Function CountEmptyLines(ByVal doc As Word.Document) As Long
Dim emptycount As Long = 0
Public Function VisualLines() As Long
Dim linecount As Long = doc.ComputeStatistics(Word.WdStatistic.wdStatisticLines, True)
Dim blanklines As Long = CountEmptyLines(doc)
Return linecount - blanklines
I am pretty much figuring that to do this I need to take the total line count and subtract the lines that have no visible characters. My problem is that I have no idea as to how to calculate the empty lines. If anyone has any brilliant ideas I would appreciate them.
