Create Email In Outlook And Make It Visible
I have written a program that can create an instance of Outlook and send an email of some data. Right now, the email is created and sent blindly, that is, outlook is never made visible during the creation/sending of the mail. I would like to have the email come up in a visible outlook window, to allow the user to edit further, and send at their convenience, but I have not been able to figure out how to make the instance of Outlook visible. I have not found a Visible property in the Outlook application object model. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

How To Create A New Form Of FrmNotify And Make It Show Above The Latest FrmNotify?
Hey guys.

Alright, what im trying to do is everytime you click the command button in form1, i want it to make a new form of frmNotification, and if there already exists a frmNotification on the screen, I want it to make a new one, and put it above the existing one, so lets say

Private Sub Command1_Click()
frmNotification.Top = ExistingNotificationForm.Top - ExistingNotificationForm.Height
End Sub

Thats basically how I want the forms placed.

And also note that the user can click the command button as many times as they want, so it will need to generate a new notification each time the command is pressed, and put it above the latest made notification.

And also, if you look at my notification example that i attached, the notification form has an "[ x ]" which will close that form. If someone clicks that, and then clicks the command button again, I want the new notification form to appear above the latest one that was made that still exists. And if none exists, then I want it to make a new one and put it, lets say at Top = 8340

And its just a thought, but I think that the 'Tags' property will need to be used.

Could anyone help? If you got any questions and are confused about something, just post and ill try to clarify it a little more.

Heres the attachment of what i kinda want it to look like:

Struggling To Make First Object - Make Class Property = To Combo Box On Form
I have an attachment that I would like someone to take a look at.
If you extract to C: it should create a folder named TEST with the Visual Basic code and a .mdb database.

Basically I've created a Class1 module and would like to make its Name property equal to whatever the Combo1's text comes up as (combo box) on Form1. At the end of the Form Load, it has a message box but it comes up blank. I'm pretty sure that I've got my Property Get sub commands correct in the class.

Depending on the default user initials that come up (gvntUser) then there are certain options allowed based on their profile. Some would be in a read-only category and only certain command buttons would be visible. An example of this is in the Class1 class. Class1.ReadOnly would store the property of true or false.

This of course is first of all based on the initial collection of pulling from orderentry.mdb database and then basing it on the Form1.Combo1.Text field as the Key. But I perceive something is not allowing this to happen as the Form is loaded...

This is just a test program that I'm learning through
On my real program, I have numerous combo boxes - some for salespeople, and some for types of orders.

Any suggestions is much appreciated. Thanks in advance for all of your replies.

How To Make Clicking Anywhere Make A List Invisible
I'm writing a program with a lot of frame objects, text boxes, button, and all sorts of gizmos, all available to the user at any time.

One funciton that I'm trying to implement is a menu system that pops up when the user clicks a button (much like the start menu in windows, but with different items in them). I have it implemented using a set of listboxes that appear/disappear when different elements on the menu are selected, and that's working great.

The problem that I am having, is that I want the menu to disapear if the user clicks anywhere on the screen other than on the list box (that I'm using for menus). I've tried the form_click event, but that doesn't work if there's frames/text boxes/etc on the form on top of the backround. For some reason the lostfocus event doesn't always trigger when I click off of the list box (onto the form, or other frame object or whatever), although it does work when clicking into a text box or something.

Anyway, I've been plugging at this for a long time. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

How Do You Create New Methods For ActiveX Controls You Create?
I recently finished making my very first complete ActiveX control, and I feel confident enough now to make another that I also need to complete one of my applications. I am going to make an Alarm control, which shouldn't be too hard to create or code, but I want to add in some methods to perform some specific tasks I want it to be able to do. I know how to create new properties, but can someone help me out with how to create new methods? You don't have to teach me anything specific, if someone has just a tutorial or something simple, that will do the job.

Now, don't get me wrong, 'cause baseball's a great sport.
It teaches little children simple eye-hand coordination with little effort or exhaustion.
