How Can I Add A VB/VBA Interface To My Application?
I am writing a terminal emulator and would like to add a VB/VBA programming interface, similar to the Visual Basic Editor in Excel, so that I can automate tasks to run through the emulator.
Does anyone have any idea how to achieve this or can anyone point me to a resource on the subject?

Many thanks in advance,


Application Interface Framework
Greetings -

I am looking for a framework that has most of the graphics stuff already handled.

My application needs to create child forms at runtime, and load graphics on it from something like a definition file.

Something close to this would be like a network management program, where symbols are created and change states.

I SUCK at graphics. I can handle the DB work, but I'm clueless on where to start for the graphics.

Any ideas?

Application Interface FReezes When Running
Hello Everyone.

I wrote a program that parses out extremely large text files (> 25 MB) and creates SQL statements to insert into tables with. My question is that, when I execute the command to process and insert this entire file, my application looks like it will freeze up. I want to put a progressBar or some sort of progress indicator, but I can't do anything with the screen (no minimize, maximize, etc). Is there something that I can do? Also why is it that it seems like it is freezing?



Creating An Interface For Fortran Application
Hello again everyone,
I've been asked to create an interface for an old Fortran program to make it more user friendly.

I was told that Python would be a good was to go but I know nothing about python and fortran right now so i was wondering if anyone thinks that i could use VB? I don't know if VB can interact with Fortran in anyway ??
Anyone have any ideas for me before I get right into it?
Here's my background: I know zero Fortan and phyton. I've been using VB for all my programming for about 4 years so I'm no guru but it's the best i got. Some Java and some C from first year engineering.

Never Give Up

I Need Help With And Interface...
Thanks guys, I have to design an interface between the computer and... Letís say about 10 relays and 5 solenoids. I would like to use VB. I tried using inpout.dll but I think it doesnít work with WinXp. What I am doing is using a set of relays and solenoids into a junction box and into my computer through the parallel port. The system will be a basic home automation. On and off only. Mostly outlets and lighting... Iím not too worried about temp and dimmers at this point. I have never done any programming with parallel or serial ports before so if you could walk me through the code. I am though familiar with Visual Basic code and syntax. I need to figure the easiest way of doing this. And another problem is that the parallel port has only so many pins and that would be a small limit of modules that could be hooked up. Maybe there is a way of making a compression of the signal and then back to the number modules I have. I have designed the software but I need the code for the interface. What I am trying to do is have a Boolean array called Module_State and have each module is associated to a variable in the array. So the Living room Light 1 is controlled by Module_State[12]. When Changed "Module_State[12] = True" then a single pulse for about 1/10 of a sec will trigger the solenoid on the Living room light. Thanks for your help.

DX And Interface
I don't know where is the correct place for this question.

VB To Interface GPS?
Hey, I haven't asked a question in awhile on here... so here it goes.

Recently I have taken up geocaching. This is a great activity and I am completely addicted. Basically it involves searching for "hidden treasure" with a GPS. It's actually more about the journey and not the destination. It's a great way to get out from behind the box and out into nature.

At any rate, I want to create an app to communicate with the GPS (Magellan Meridian Gold) so as to be able to upload and download points to/from it. All the freeware/shareware stuff does not do what I want. I have scoured the web looking for an API or anything else catching, but have had no luck. I know that there has to be something out there for this because, as I mentioned, there are several pieces of third party software around that are not GPS specific. I am thinking that there is some type of industry wide protocol. Also, it would also be really cool to be able to manage maps, however I am quite sure that this is properiety based since the GPS manufacturers charge an arm and a leg for the in-depth mapping software -- and everything I have seen is GPS manufacturer specific.

If anybody can shed some light on this for me, it would be greatly appreciated.

Com Interface
I have a DLL which a friend wants to call using php. Apparently, you can't call a dll from php unless it has a COM interface.

Any idea how I do this? Can I build an activex dll that provides this interface?

The current DLL is a Visual C++ one.

In case you haven't guessed, I'm not sure how a COM interface works - I presumed it was basically the interface that a ActiveX DLL uses, that can be read from VB as a reference.

What Is An Interface
could somebody please explain to me what exactly an interface is in a layman's language ... from my reading, it would appear to be the mere exposure of properties and methods which i would understand to be part of the object ... if so, then how can an interface be registered separately from the object? is there a difference between an object and a component? what role does an interface play in this difference?

PDA Interface
Hi all

How To Interface?

i am trying to send Variables FROM an ActiveX-Dll (wich i am running in an ASP script on a IIS webserver),

TO my VB app wich is running on the same server,
how would i send information to the vbApp?, but mostly
how would i get information FROM the vbApp, that i can send back thru
the ASP script (using oResponse.Write in the ActiveX-DLL)

NOte:for now i found no tutorials about this. I tried SendMessage to
write to a textbox in my VB app, however i couldn't figure out how to,
get information from the VB app..

any help would be verry appreciated,



Web Interface
Hi. Im trying to find a website or any other documentation that enumerates Pros and Cons of using a web interface to interact with an application.


Getting Interface Of DLL

I have a DLL (probably not activex) that comes with an application, and i think there is some nice magic inside of it. There is no documentation and the supplier is not doing customer service.

How do i discover the interface of this DLL. Is there some kind of tool that gives me the information how to declare its functions in VB?

Thanx in advance!

Web Interface
Does anyone know how to create an web-interface for my visual basic 6 application?
I'm making an parallel-port control. That section runs fine, now a web-interface.
Or do I need visual studio .net 2003 for it?
EDIT: a .net 2003 app won't work on my other pc. END EDIT:
I'm using VB6 instead of VS2005 because it must run on a old win 98 SE computer
Or must I make my program listen to a port and make an (external) .php file to send commands to it?

Is it possible to raise a generic event(s) from an Interface defined for several base classes?


'Public Event SomeEvent(strData as String) **

' Read Only Property...
Public Property Get Prop1() as String

' Sub Procedure...
Public Sub Some Method()
End Sub

** Why does this code not expose a new event from the base classes events list?

Is this the limition of VB regarding Interfaces.
