Visual Basic 6 Free Tutorial
I know there are a lot of Free tuts out there but having used a few of them, most leave a lot to be desired.
I have dug up this tutorial site off the internet. And while I'm just getting into it its really good in that it takes NOTHING for granted about your knowledge as far as I can tell. This is something I haven't found in other tutorials. Even VB4 for Dummies.
In the couple hours I've been going through it it seems like the best VB tutorial I've come across for beginners. So I thought I would share this with everyone in case someone else is interested.
I say we have a contest. Who can post a link to the most well thought out, best written, tutorial for beginners. Eh. Just a thought.

Version Of Visual Basic

Thanks in Advance!!!

Rich Textbox Formatting [Visual Basic Version: 6.0]
Hello! Dear all Friends...!
I'm using Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0. I'm making my first application for the document (both rich text formatted and plain text formatted) editing.
I've added too much tricks in my application e.g. Multiple Undo, Redo. Bullets as well as Numbering, Hyperlinking, Print Preview, Webpage Preview and many more... But I've some questions about Rich Textbox formatting. These are given below:
Q. 1. Is it possible to DROP CAP in Rich Textbox just like in Microsoft Office Word? Drop Cap is a feature which creates a large dropped initial capital letter of a specified paragraph. You can see this feature in Office Word.
Q. 2. How can we change the color of a Hyperlink in Rich Textbox without changing it by using custom ways e.g. SelForeColor property? (Changing the Default Blue Color of a Hyperlink to some one else)?
Q. 3. Is is possible to insert Mathematic Symbols e.g. Under roots, Squared, Greater or Lesser than, Integration, Derivation or else in Rich Textbox?
Q. 4 . In a table of Rich Textbox (table made by custom means in rich textbox), is it possible to sort it alphabetically?
Q. 5. How can I insert a line and a Break in a Rich Textbox?
Q. 6. Is it possible in Rich Textbox to add RTF Bookmarks in it?
Q. 7. How can we convert RTF code to HTML code?
Q. 8. Can we change the background of Rich Textbox? Not only the BackColor of Rich TextBox, to insert or set the Background Bitmap in Rich Textbox?
Please tell the answer to my questions. I'll be very thankful to you all, for this act of kindness!!!

Codes Required To Integrate Crystal Report Version XI To Visual Basic 6.0
Can anyone help who has an idea in crystal report and visual
basic help me out here. The thing is in crystal report version
8.5 everything works absolutely perfect but we just got to the
crystal report XI and its quite difficult to link the crystal
report version XI to the visual basic 6.0 code, reason being
once upgraded all the reports and form we have in the version
8.5 wont be accessible anymore, so the potent option is to
establish a link between the version XI and the VB6 codes.
your help will be very much appriciated.

Visual Basic Items Removed From Visual Basic.NET
A while ago (maybe up to a year) I had found a web page (probably a Microsoft MVP's home age) that had a list of about 100 things that were removed from Visual Basic in the transition to Visual Basic.NET. As it is, I would like to look at that again, but I can't seem to find it on my computer. Does anyone remember this page and/or have a copy of the link or the file that was on it. It has particular things like Debug.Print is no longer valid and MsgBox function is not supported. I've look on Microsoft's website and found a great deal of information about implementation difference, but I can't seem to locate this particular piece. If anyone could help I would appreciate it very much.
Thanks in Advnance

Visaul Basic Version 4/5 And NT/2000
Hi please help: I don't know anything about VB and I am in a situation where I really wish that I don't have to make any changes for what I need to do as stated below.
we have a set of visual basic executables compiled with VB version 4 or 5 that are running on a PC with NT operating system.
There is an urgent need to upgrade the NT PC to windows2000.
Will there be any compatibility issue when we move the VB executables to the new PC with the win2000 on it?
Do I have to recompile and code for this?
Please help, Urgent.
Visual Studio.net Version Compatibility
I am currently taking a college course in Visual Basic.Net and I am a
I bought Visual Studio.Net 2003 to do my homework at home. I built my
first project and e-mailed it to myself at school. When I tried to
open it in the lab, I got a message saying I couldn't open it because
it was created with a newer version. Evidently the lab is using Visual
My professor doesn't just want the executable file, he wants all the
component files so he can compile it himself.
I read through the Help file and here's what I found:
Side-by-Side Installations of Visual Studio .NET
Visual Studio supports installation of versions 2002 and 2003 on the
same machine; however you should be aware of certain issues.
• Visual Studio .NET 2002 shipped with the Microsoft .NET Framework
SDK version 1.0. Visual Studio .NET 2003 ships with .NET Framework SDK
version 1.1. If you developed applications that reference .NET
Framework version 1.0 and attempt to open the solution in Visual
Studio .NET 2003, the references to .NET Framework are changed to
reference .NET Framework 1.1. You should review the latest .NET
Framework documentation for information on changes that might affect
your application. For more information, see Targeting a .NET Framework
Version and Installation and Setup.
• If you open and then save solutions created in Visual Studio .NET
2002 in Visual Studio .NET 2003, you can no longer open the solution
created in version 2002 in Visual Studio .NET 2002.
Specifying the Runtime Version for an Application
Applications created in Visual Studio .NET 2003 or later can be set to
target one or more versions of the common language runtime by setting
the Supported Runtimes property. By default, the latest version of the
common language runtime is used; specify a different runtime version
if you want your application to run on a previous version of the
common language runtime.
Caution Selecting a previous version of the runtime could cause the
application to fail if it references .NET Framework classes that did
not exist in the previous version. You should thoroughly test your
application against all specified versions. For more information, see
Working With Multiple Versions of the .NET Framework.
To specify the runtime version in Visual Basic .NET
Select the project in Solution Explorer.
On the Project menu, choose Properties.
In the Property Pages dialog box, select the Build node and click the
In the .NET Framework Version dialog box, select a version option and
My question is: Will specifying the runtime version allow my professor
to open the files in the older version? If not, is there anything else
I can do?
Thank you in advance for any help.
