My Label Won't Show Up
I have a progress bar and a label whose visible property i set to false when the form loads, when the user clicks a button i make the progress bar visible and the label too. For some reason the progress bar shows up fine but the label wont but if i ctrl+break the program the label shows up. Does the whole form get loaded again to show the progress of the progress bar and consequently the label.visible = false?

How To Show Label If Key Is Pressed
Hello!

hi ive been make ing a maze game that uses 182 shapes to make up the background and they make it up by reading from a text file this is my code so far.

text1.SelStart = "0"
p.Visible = True
render
End Sub

Private Sub render()
Do Until no = "1"
If text1.SelStart = Len(text1.Text) Then
no = "1"
Label1.Visible = False
p.Visible = False
Else
text1.SelLength = "1"
If text1.SelText = "1" Then
Shape1(text1.SelStart).FillColor = &H404040
Else
Shape1(text1.SelStart).FillColor = &HFF00&
End If
p = p + 1
End If
text1.SelStart = text1.SelStart + 1

Hide And Show Label

Show The Date In A Label
How do i show the day (Saturday) not the date (10/02/07) in a label.

Label To Show ToolTipText!
In a WebBrowser project, I am using a ListView which acts as the History window (like how the History side-window comes up on the left hand side when the History button is clicked in IE). When the mouse is moved over each of the items in the History window, I want to show a ToolTipText for each of the URLs listed in the History window.

The ToolTipText should have 2 lines - the top line displaying the title of the web page & the lower line displaying the URL of the web page. As the usual ToolTipText does not support multi-line ToolTipText, I am using a Label which will render the 2-lined ToolTipText. This is how I am doing it:
VB Code:
Private Sub Form_Load()    Label1.Visible = FalseEnd Sub Private Sub lvwHistory_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)    On Error Resume Next    Dim itm As ListItem    Dim msg$    With lvwHistory        Set itm = .HitTest(X, Y)        msg$ = itm.Text & vbCrLf        msg$ = msg$ & itm.Tag        Label1.Caption = msg$    End With    Label1.Top = Y    Label1.Left = X    Label1.Visible = TrueEnd Sub Private Sub Label1_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)    Label1.Visible = FalseEnd Sub
When I placed a Label on the WebBrowser control in the VB IDE, I found that the Label was always getting hidden behind the WebBrowser control. When I right-clicked the Label & then clicked Bring to Front, still the Label remained hidden behind the WebBrowser control. The same happened when I placed the Label over the ListView, it got hidden behind the ListView. Bring to Front didn't bring it to front either.

Now when I run the code, the Label with the ToolTipText gets rendered but as in the IDE, it always remains hidden behind the ListView or the WebBrowser control; it just can't be seen. How do I resolve this problem?

The WebBrowser control occupies around 80% of the Form space (the rest being occupied by different navigational buttons). When the ListView comes up, it occupies about 35% of the Form width. So I don't have any place in the Form where I could place the Label to prevent it from geting hidden.

Please note that if I use a TextBox to display the ToolTipText instead of a Label, then I don't encounter this problem. A TextBox would do the needful but the reason why I want to use a Label to display the ToolTipText is because a Label has the AutoSize property which a TextBox doesn't have.

Show && In Label Caption
I have a Form to enter names and Address


The TEXTBOX accepts and shows and entry thus

    MR & MRS Able Baker


A LABEL used to display Correspondance Salute SHOULD SHOW

    DEAR MR & MRS Able Baker

but the & is Replaced with an Underscore and displays as

    DEAR MR _ MRS Able Baker

BOTH TEXTBOX and LABEL are Ms Sans Serif bold 12

Can anybody help me with how to make Label show the & not the Underscore !!!!!





Show Loop In Label
I'm looping through a database, and would like to display what record it's currently looking at. Unfortunately, it doesn't show any data until the loop has finished, and then it only shows the last record. Any help would be appreciated.

Code:
Private Sub Form_Load()
    strSQL = "DSN=company01;gr_uid=user;gr_pwd=;"
    Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
    cn.Open strSQL
        
    SQL = "select * from product"
    Set product = cn.Execute(SQL)

    Do While Not product.EOF
        Label1.Caption = "Now Processing: " & product("oName")
    product.MoveNext
    Loop

End Sub

Limiting A Label To Show Only 2 Numbers
I am using this code to get the current time of my media file

LbCurrentTime(Index) = Val(GetCurrentMultimediaPos(AliasName)) / Val(LbFramesPerSecond(Index))


The thing is, the value comes back as 3.46434 and 5.7649, and so forth. I was wondering how I could limit it to display the number, plus 2 behind the decimal, such as 3.46 or 5.76.

String Array Value Wont Show In Label
I have a problem here. I'm trying to make a spelling program for little kids so they can learn to spell the numbers one through twenty. I have a string array strWordList and assigned all the values. Right now one of those strWordList numbers (for example 5) will output in one label and I want my user to spell the number correctly in a text box. If they spell it correctly how can I get that word to appear in another label? I hope I'm not confusing. Here is the relevant code I have. Right now nothing happens when I click the button that should show the word after I typed it in correctly.

strWordList(0) = "Zero"
strWordList(1) = "One"
strWordList(2) = "Two"
strWordList(3) = "Three"
strWordList(4) = "Four"
strWordList(5) = "Five"
strWordList(6) = "Six"
strWordList(7) = "Seven"
strWordList(8) = "Eight"
strWordList(9) = "Nine"
strWordList(10) = "Ten"
strWordList(11) = "Eleven"
strWordList(12) = "Twelve"
strWordList(13) = "Thirteen"
strWordList(14) = "Fourteen"
strWordList(15) = "Fifteen"
strWordList(16) = "Sixteen"
strWordList(17) = "Seventeen"
strWordList(18) = "Eighteen"
strWordList(19) = "Nineteen"
strWordList(20) = "Twenty"

intNum = Int(Rnd() * 21)

If txtSpell.Text = strWordList(intNum) Then
lblWord.Text = txtSpell.Text
End If

How To Show Listbox Info In A Label On Another Form.
Hello,

I'm having trouble getting the text (Title of a collection) in a listbox, to appear within a label on another from. Example, I want to delete/Remove "Sample 2" from the listbox. Sample 2 is highlighted and I want that text to show up in my label like this: Are you sure that you want to delete the collection 'Sample 2'? I'll paste in the code I'm trying to use below, which at present is placing the index number of what I want within the single quotes.

Private Sub Form_Load()
Label1 = "Are you sure that you want to delete the collection '" & Form2.lstClient.ListIndex & "'?"
End Sub

I'm missing something here and can't figure out how to get the collection name from the list box to appear, which is what I want to do. Any Ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Label Or Labels To Show When I Click Any Data In The Datalist?
Can someone tell me how to make a Label (with text) to show when i click one of the data within the datalist? I have 3 adodcs and 3 tables, table 1 and 2 are the ones i need to use. I have a module too and someone said i have add the code in the module and the datalist to get the label to show when i click on one of the data in the datalist.

Something like this code but im not sure if it's right

Datalist code


Code:
If DataList1.BoundText = "s1" Then showText

And then another code in the module.

1. User clicks on the datalist item

2. In the datalist1_Click() event, check to see which service the user is clicking on by using code like this:

If datalist1.boundtext="S2" then ..........
Here "S2" is the serviceId code for a service such as the refectory.

But i dont know the full code and the code i need to input in the module to get it working

Can someone tell me how to do this?

Thanks!

**RESOLVED** Underlined Label Does Not Show At Win98 Installation
Goodday everyone,

I've got a small problem i think. I am making a hyperlink on a label, this works fine on XP, 2K and on win98SE compleetly
but if i let the .exe work on an clean win98SE installation, the hyperlink nore the caption are beeing changed, thats nessesary
cause my label_click events only reacts if there is an underline.

The font i used for the label is MS Sans Serif.

Piece of code

Code:
ElseIf adoRSFields!played= False And (strYear = Year(Date) And strMonth <= Month(Date) And strDay <= Day(Date)) Then

       .Datum(i).FontUnderline = True
       .Datum(i).ForeColor = &H8000000D
       .Datum(i).Caption = "Click Here"




Edit:

    It's a registry key in the regional settings.
    it has to do with the following key SShortDate. In some versions of windows the shortdate is set to
    d-M-jj. In Access2000 on winXP Home when i am making a column Date the year is displayed with four characters
    in some windows with two characters so for me i had to change the registry key into d-M-jjjj and then it worked.
Thanks in advance

Clicking Through Label (or Disabled Label Color)
I'm having some trouble with a game I'm working on. I have image boxes that change color when they are clicked. Each image box has a label over. As it is now, you have to avoid clicking on the label in order to change the color of the image box. If I disable the label, then you can't even see it because of the color. Seems as though there is no way to change the disabled color, right. I need the label to remain on top, with an invisible background after the image box color changes. Is there anyway I can tell the program to ignore the labels? Or any other ideas on how to do this? THANKS!
