Change Icon Of Tree View Child Item
I have a tree view which displays the status of various devices connected to my system
Periodically I poll the devices to get an updated status. If the status changes I want to display a different icon (eg warning icon, or healthy icon).
I know the specific Relative and Child item but i cant figure out how to change the icon in runtime for the child.
myTree.Nodes(ArrayEntry).Image = newIcon
but that is trying to change the relative icon rather than the specific child device icon.
Anyone got the solution?
Thanks in advance
Rtf Text Box - How To Avoid Text Color Change On Text Selection
I am using an rtf text box because i am using colored text.
The text uses more then one color.
My problem is, after a selection is made and the selected text highlighted, after the next click, (the highlighting is gone) the colored text will turn to black.
How can i avoid this "decoloring" after a selection, but still enable the user to select text?
Since the selected text is colored in more then one color - i cant just recolor it back again...
or can i?
Tree View Control And Lots Of Text = Memory Hog
I have 64k of text that I have to place in a treeview control and be able to add to it alphabetically by parent node. Unfortunately that scenario doesn't work the way I need it to, I found some code to copy one treeview to another and then it would work perfectly but there's one problem...It won't work on a machine with 64 megs of ram!
I'm new to using a treeview control and I can't find any information on the actual use of it on the internet or in reference materials. The code I have to copy one to another probably works great but I am unable to modify it to put it in my program the way I need it.
I need to iterate through all the nodes from top to bottom as if going through each and every one you come to, Not Roots first then Parents then children.
Then I need to send the Text and Tag of the node to a subroutine that writes the info to a file.
If anyone experienced with the TreeView control can help me I would be very appreciative.

Change Color Of The Text
I am writing code to send email in Outlook with VB. My question is how to change color of the note in Outlook with VB. So, If people open the email, he(she) will see color of the first line is blue, second line is black.
Please help me! Thank you. I asked a few people and got no answer.
Can't Get Text Color To Change
First I'll say, according to what I see when goto Start/Programs it shows Visual Basic 5.0 CCE. I thought I had been using VB6 but I guess I'm not. I doubt much changed wtih VB6 with what I'm about to ask so I figured I would ask here instead of in VB General.
I'm trying to get the color of the text inside a textbox to change. I can't get it to do it. I've read through several messages here and have tried all kinds of crazy stuff and none of it has worked.
What I have is two separate text control array, Text1(0-99) and Text2(0-99). Text2 overlaps at the bottom right of Text1. Text2 is smaller than Text1.
Text1 will will display certain elements only and is disabled so the showen elements can't be changed. The displayed elements are suppose to be black. They are gray in reality.
The Text1 elements that can be typed in are suppose to be red and they do come across as red.
Text2 elements, when shown will come across blue, they come across gray.
I have tried everything imaginable and nothing works, below shows what I've been trying right now and the results are as indicated above.
For j = 0 To 9
For i = 0 To 9
k = (j * 10) + i
Text1(k).TabStop = False
Text1(k).ForeColor = vbBlack
Text1(k).Enabled = False
Text1(k).Text = tmp(j + 1, i + 1)
If Text1(k) = "" Then Text1(k).TabStop = True
If Text1(k) = "" Then Text1(k).Enabled = True
If Text1(k) = "" Then Text1(k).ForeColor = vbRed
For i = 0 To 9
For j = 0 To 9
k = (i * 10) + j
Text2(k).Enabled = True
Text2(k).Locked = True
Text2(k).TabStop = False
Text2(k).ForeColor = vbBlue
Text2(k).Visible = False
Text2(k).Text = Mid$(norder(i + 1), j + 1, 1)
Text2(k).Enabled = False
As you can see I have tried just about everything I have seen in the past messages that I have seen so far and I'm still not having any luck. Text2 should be disabled and no tabstop should be set for Text2. Text2 is also invisible until a button is pushed.
Any help would be appreciated. It seems like it should work fine but it doesn't.

Change ComboBox Text When Item Selected
I though this would be easy, I have a ComboBox style set to 0, and the list is populated from a dB. What I want to do is have the default Text change to the selected item when the list reloads. Here is the code;
Code:' Populate the Type list
If Len(sqlQuery) > 2 Then
cboEntryType.Text = sqlQuery
cboEntryType.Text = " All"
For i = 0 To m_TypeRows
str9 = " " & m_varTypes(0, i) & " " ' Entry Types
sqlQuery is a parameter sent to another function that returns the ListItems, if I set a watch on the var sqlQuery it does indeed have a valid value, but when the box is displayed the Text is " " with focus on the box.

So How Do You Change Text Color In Excel??
Did some searching and can't see where I'm going wrong. I'm trying to change the text color to white. I'm assuming you use "font.color = ...." to change the text color in a cell, correct?
vWB.Sheets(1).Cells(6, 5 + c).font.color = RGB(255, 255, 255)
vWB.Sheets(1).Cells(x) is fine, I've been using this work book all over my code, just having trouble setting the text font to white for particular cells. Would also like to be able to specify a range, but this also errors...
vWB.Sheets(1).Range(vWB.Sheets(1).Cells(6, 5 + c), vWB.Sheets(1).Cells(6, 5 + c + 1)).font.color = RGB(255, 255, 255)
