DLL Function List


Hi!

I am working on loading DLL's dynamically in VB (LoadLibrary, ...) because the DLL's are not known at compile time of the software.

This works fine, but I have 2 more or less easy questions:

1.) Is it possible to get a list of all functions in this DLL (not with e.g. dependency walker, but within VB).
2.) Is it possible to get the parameter list for a dedicated DLL function (as it is displayed in the Object Catalog when I add the reference in Visual Basic)?

Regards,

Martin.

From A Function To A List Box
Anyone done this before.

I want to populate a listbox on a form from a complex function.

I thought I could populate a collection, but it doesn't want to work. In essense, it needs to be something like this:


Code:
lbOne = FillList(sField, bTrue)


Public Function FillList(sfield as string, bTrue as boolean) as Listbox

<get a bunch of data>
<move the data back to the list box>
End function
Any ideas?

Library Function List?
In a typical C manual -- such as O'Reilly's "Posix Programmer's Guide" -- if I want to format date/time, I look up some appropriate sounding function name. Turns out to be strftime(). (Shocking development, but stay with with me. ) However, simply calling strftime() will not do: The library must be included as well. In this the strftime() listing tells me it is time.h.

Now, the Visual Basic issue:

It appears from the MSDN documentation that VB 6.0 comes with date/time controls such as DateTimePicker and MonthView. Unfortunately, it does not tell me what library to add to the toolbar so that I can drag the control onto my form. In fact, none of the control listings that I have seen mention what needs to be places on the toll bar to access the control. That's like having an index with no page numbers.

Is there some way of determining what libraries contain what Visual Basic controls and functions?

Function Auto List
HI,
Is it possible to create functions that have an auto list box appear for some of its arguments, such as the ones you see with the msgbox function (where the list drops down with vbcritical, vbOk etc....). Thanks in advance, Shaun.

Populating A List Box With A Function
Hi, I'm trying to populate a list box with a function. The function will gather the names of all the queries (in my Access 97 database), put them in an array, and display them in the list box. When I run the code below there are no errors, but nothing is displayed. The list box Row Source Type is set to 'getQueries', but still nothing is displayed.

Any help will be really appreciated.

Function getQueries(fld As Control, id As Variant, row As Variant, col As Variant, code As Variant) As Variant
Static qry(100) As String
Dim Entries As Integer
Static ReturnVal As Variant
ReturnVal = Null
Dim db As Database
Set db = CurrentDb

Select Case code
Case acLBInitialize
Entries = 0
With db
Do Until Entries = .QueryDefs.Count Or Entries &gt;= 100
qry(Entries) = .QueryDefs(Entries).Name
Entries = Entries + 1
Loop
End With
ReturnVal = Entries
Case acLBOpen
ReturnVal = Timer
Case acLBGetRowCount
ReturnVal = Entries
Case acLBGetColumnCount
ReturnVal = 1
Case acLBGetColumnWidth
ReturnVal = True
Case acLBGetValue
ReturnVal = qry(row)
Case acLBEnd
Erase qry
End Select
getQueries = ReturnVal
End Function

Function To Put A List Of Items Into An Array?
Isn't there a function that can take a list of items and put them into an array?

I searched for it unsuccessfully but it seems like I've seen it before when I didn't need it.

For instance I've got a string that contains a list of arguments separated by commas and I want to shove each of the args into the elements of a single array.

Recursive File List Function
I have a function that will return any files in a given folder. But in order to make it also return files in subfolders, i was told i would have to make it recursive. Recursive functions are something ive never had to use yet...and quite frankly i dont understand them. Could someone tell me what modifications i would have to make to this function to make it return subfolder files as well?

VB Code:
Function DirList(strDir As String) As String()    'returns a 0 based array with the files in strDir    'Can contain a pattern such as "*.*"    Dim Count As Integer    Dim sFiles() As String    Dim sFile As String        sFile = Dir$(strDir)    Count = -1    Do        Count = Count + 1        ReDim Preserve sFiles(Count)        sFiles(Count) = sFile        sFile = Dir$    Loop    DirList = sFilesEnd Function

I cannot register this DLL (it fails; why? donīt know...), cannot add a reference inside Access, and then cannot view it with the Access object explorer. Oh, and i also donīt have Visual Studio and then cannot use the API viewer.

All i succedeed to get is a list of the functions names, BUT WITHOUT THE DECLARATION (i got this with a soft called PE Explorer - www.heaventools.com), then i cannot Declare them in my code.
I also get with this PE Explorer an "entry point" (hexadecimal number) and an "index" (integer) for each functions: what is it? can i use it?

How To Return Multiple Values From A Function (list?)
I need to write a function in VB that returns a list of strings. I tried to declare the function as:

Is there something I'm missing? I would appreciate the help

Declaring C++ Function With Variable Length Parameter List
Hi,

I am trying to use functions from a C/C++ DLL by declaring them in my VB6 code. But one of the functions in this DLL has a variable number of parameters and I have no idea how to declare that.

In C++ the command works like this. You give a list of parameters, each pair consists of a Long and a Double. At the end of the list a NULL value is added to indicate the end of the list. The amount of pairs you can provide is variable.

But how can I declare this in VB6? I have tried it with a array of a user type (containing the Long and Double), but that does not work. I get no error when I run the code, but when I examine the result nothing has happened.

List Box, Instr Function, And Sequential Access File
This is an exercise from my book I have to do. I am stumped on it and don't know where to start.

The main program design has one list box on the left and one on the right. The list box on the left has full-time, full-time/new cars, full-time/used cars, new cars, part-time, part-time/new cars, part-time/used cars, and used cars in it. When you click on one of this it is supposed to list the names of these employees in the list box on the right. The names of the employees are located in a .dat file along with F1, F2, P1, P2 next to there names whether they are full-time (F), New Cars (1), Part-time (P), Used Cars (2). The first list box is named lstChoices, the second one is lstNames and I'm supposed to code lstChoices click event so that it displays the appropriate listing in the lstNames list box (Hint: Use the Instr function). This is all the information I have. The items are already added to the first list box, so I'm stuck beyond this point. Any advice would be appreciated, or if something like this has been posted before please tell me where I can find it. Thanks.

BTW, I'm using VB 6.0

Getting A Combo Box List And Putting It In A List Box List On Another Form
I am finally writing my first MDI! I'm doing a lot better than I thought I would so far, but now I'm stuck. I need to have a list from a combo box copied into a list box on another form. I want it in the Form_Load() event. Right now I have:

Code:Private Sub Form_Load()
frmpresetedit.deletepreset.List = frmtimer1.cmbpresets.List
frmpresetedit.Show
End Sub

deletepreset is the list box, cmbpresets is my combo box.
It always comes up with a compile error at the .list part of cmbpresets.list and says that 'the argument is not optional'. What is my problem here? I'm sure this problem is simple and I'm probably just making a stupid mistake. What code do I need to use?
Thanks

Create A Property Window Dropdown List AKA Listbox List/ItemData
I'm trying to create an enhanced listbox control (in VB6) and one of my main criteria is to make it funtion very similarly to the standard listbox control.
Creating dropdown lists of constants (i.e. the Style property) is easy enough. but I haven't been able to re-create the ability to add (array) items in the property window such as is possible with the standard Listbox List and ItemData properties.
Anyone know how (or if) this can be done in VB6?

if someone double clicks on one of those names (which are populated through other methods...not important) i want that name to be deleted...now where i am out of ideas is: how do i delete one item from one list when my list (List1) is an array of about 41 list boxes all named List1 (x) see....

Excel - Dropdown Showing List 2 Dependant On What Was Chosen In List 1

I would like to select one object from list 1 in a cell in column A and then have the cursor cell move to the right neighbouring cell and present me with a dropdown menu showing the contents of another list dependant on what was chosen in the first cell. Is there a specific command for this?

Editing List Items And ListSubItems In List View Control
Hi,

It is possible to edit ( add an entry ) the first column of a ListView control. By setting to automatic mode.

How do I edit the subsequent columns ( The listSubItems ).

What Is The Limits On COmbo Box, List Box And LIst View And How Do You Handle Situations W
OK<
I have looked at all 5 of my vb Barnes and noble books
under listbox
and did not find where it said what the limit was.

I learned how to read a data base (unbound even) into a list box, or combo box.

But now I have over 32,768 items,
my data base list has between 100,000 - 125,000 Parts I want to load.

I can think of a lot of cases where the data base you want to load into a list or combo box is well of 32768


So my questions are
( I did also search VBCITY)

1) What is the limits on
listbox
combo box
list view

and

where is it documented.

and 2

How do I handle the case of more than 32768 with a listview??

I did found a little bit about it on vbcity

Thanks



 

Changing To A List View Instead Of A List Box To Overcome 32768 Limits
I had the program done
I was loading a listbox and typing is a text box watching the closest match be selected.
I start off by filling the list box from a mdb with a table called partlist,
and a field called part numbers

It worked fine.
But now because I am over 32768 ( I will never go over 125,000) records, I am past the usefullness of a list box I guess.

so How do I change this code that works with a listbox, to code that works with a viewbox

and is this my best solution

Here is the listbox working code

Public Function FillListboxparts(Optional PartNumber As String)
   Screen.MousePointer = vbHourglass
   Dim li As ListItem
   Dim lih As ListItem
   Dim cnn As ADODB.Connection
   Dim rsPartList As ADODB.Recordset
   Dim strSQL As String

   strSQL = "SELECT PartNumber From partlist"
   
 
   Set cnn = New ADODB.Connection
   
   cnn.Open ConnString
   Set rsPartList = New ADODB.Recordset
   rsPartList.Open strSQL, cnn

While Not rsPartList.EOF
    listboxparts.AddItem rsPartList("Partnumber")
    rsPartList.MoveNext
Wend
Text1.Text = listboxparts.ListCount
 rsPartList.Close
 Set rsPartList = Nothing
 cnn.Close
 Set cnn = Nothing
    
 Set li = Nothing
 Set lih = Nothing
  Screen.MousePointer = vbDefault
  End Function

Parsing The List Recieved From The LIST Command On An FTP Server
I need to parse the list that is recieved from differnet servers. Now, the list is not always in the exactly same format, but always is in some kind of pattern.

This list is the directory information that you request. I need help in parsing it, into the different data it contains

I know of 2 main types of listing - UNIX-type and DOS-type.

The UNIX type is a more full, with serveral details like Owner, Group Permissions etc, while the DOS-type is like a scaled-down version of the UNIX type.

format of Unix Type

Code:
drwxrwxrwx 1 owner group 43 oct 18 1996 Directory number 1
-rwxrwxrwx 1 owner group 43 oct 18 1996 This is file 1.txt
-rwxrwxrwx 1 owner group 43 oct 18 1996 This is file 2 .txt
-rwxrwxrwx 1 owner group 43 oct 18 1996 This can be file 3 etc.txt
format of DOS-type

Code:
10-18-96 11:10AM 43 This is file 1.txt
10-18-96 11:10AM 43 this is File 1.txt
10-18-96 11:10AM 43 this is File 2.txt
But also there are other variations to those types. If all the responses followed that style, that would be no problem.

The unix-type can sometimes be sent like this.

Code:
drwxrwxrwx 1 owner 43 oct 18 1996 Directory number 1
The dos-type can sometimes be also sent like this

Code:
07-13-03 09:12AM 20151 diablo.jpg
07-13-03 09:12AM 11927 dls.jpg
07-13-03 01:44AM <DIR> doc
07-13-03 08:50AM <DIR> docu
etc.

I developed a parsing routine that first determines if the list is Unix/DOs type.

First it parses the list into lines

This can be done by checking for a "d", "-", or "l" at the begining of the line.

But all the different types of responses are not easy to generalize. There is no responsible RFC for generalizing them, or making them standard. It just says that they must be in a "Human-Readable Form".

I've seen FTP clients that do parse almost all (I've yet to see any client that is not parsed by a tested client).

Does anyone know a good routine, or anything that might help me on my venture in parsing ? hehe

thanks a lots in forward!

any help, more than appreciated!

PS: Didnt put this in the Communications cause i dont tink it has anything to do with Winsock, cause i am not asking HOW TO recieve the LIST command.

Sending Data From One List Box To Another List Box At A Click Of A Button
Hey guys,

First post at visualbasicforum.com! I need some help with a function on my college project.

I want to know how to copy data from one list box to another list box on a different form.

Want to be able to handle multiple lines on the list box and also happen when i click a button.

I know how to send from text to text for label to label:

frm2form.label1.caption = label2.caption

But, I've found list box to list box a bit more difficult and can't get it right!

Thanks in advance guys!

How Do I Hide An Application From The Process List? Not Task List, I Have It Already.
In Windows 2000, NT (I think), and XP, there is more than just a task list after pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del. There is the process list, as well as many other choices. The process list, shows virtually every program that's running in memory, and a lot of them aren't in the Task list. How do I hide my application from the process list? Thanks.

ListBox - Move List Item To Place In List
I have a list box with several items. I am trying to make a button that when the user selects an item in the list box, they can click on the button which will move the item up one in the list box:

So if my list looked like this:

ONE
TWO
THREE
FOUR
FIVE

and the user selected FOUR and clicked the button the list would look like this:

ONE
TWO
FOUR
THREE
FIVE


Does anyone know how to do this?

Combine List Items To Create New Item In Same List?
Hi all,

This has been giving me fits for a few days - any help would be most appreciated. I'm sure it's pretty simple, but I'm new to VB (and programming in general) and can't seem to come up with the correct syntax to get this to work:

I have a listbox from which the user can select mutliple items. Once user performs a multi-select, I enable a button (no problem there). When user clicks that button, I want to create a new item in that same list consisting of all selected items with "AND" between them.

Thus, if user had selected <item 1>, <item 2>, and <item 4>, the new item would be "<item 1> AND <item 2> AND <item 4>". Can someone please help me with the logic and syntax on this?

Here's what I have up to this point (I've removed the parts that I believe - based on the fact that this is not working - to be wrong and replaced them with ?????):

Code:
        Dim terms As String
        For Each terms In List.SelectedItems
            If List.SelectedItems.Count > 1 Then
                terms = ??????? & " AND " & ???????
            End If
        Next
        List.Items.Add (???????)


Thanks!!

Can I Give A List Box Entry My Own List Index (Resolved)
Hi all,

    I have created code that takes data from an access database and puts in a list box. I wish to make it look at the selected list entry, open that recorset and add data to it. The only way I think I can do this is to give the list entry an index refering to the record id in the database. I could then search the database for the list index when selected. Is this possible or dase anyone know a better way.

Thanks,

Ben
