Move Form By Child Control Doesn't Work With 6.0

For some odd reason MSDN doesn't put any 6.0 based code on their site, and that means I usually have to translate to 6.0 code myself from .NET code.

How do I do this though:

This is the code they suggested for dragging a form using a child control:

Option Explicit
Private Declare Sub ReleaseCapture Lib "User" ()
Private Declare Function SendMessage Lib "User" (ByVal hWnd As _
Integer, ByVal wMsg As Integer, ByVal wParam As Integer, _
lParam As Any) As Long

Private Const WM_SYSCOMMAND = &H112
Private Const MOUSE_MOVE = &HF012

' Enter the line below as one line of code
Private Sub Command1_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, _
X As Single, Y As Single)
Dim lReturn As Long
Call ReleaseCapture
lReturn = SendMessage(Form1.hWnd, WM_SYSCOMMAND, MOUSE_MOVE, 0)
End Sub

But that doesn't work for 6.0. It says it can't find file User, which is the Lib MSDN told me to use

Do you guys have any suggestions?

Child Form Doesn't Respond On The First Click
I had to replace Sheridan ActiveListBar control with DBI-Tech ListBar on MDI form in my VB6 app. I spent a lot of time on that replacement without paying attention on Children forms behavior. After click on a new ListBar one Child is replaced with another one (for instance there was Customer form and after click it was unloaded and Supplier form was loaded). The first click on Supplier form doesn't do anything. Form behaves as disabled. The second click works as it should. It doesn't matter where the first click is done - any button, check box, combo. Just no any reaction.
Any idea why it's like that?
I tried to find some work around by setting focus on controls, by calling Click event procedures. Nothing helps. Only manual click makes the form responsible.

Thank you

Control+C To Copy From Textbox Doesn't Work As ActiveX Control In IE
Hello all,

I've got a wierd problem that I'm trying to figure out. I've created an activeX control using vb 6 sp5 for use in IE 5 and higher. The control contains a textbox and does some things that aren't important to this question like getting the linecount, etc...

When I run my control from vb, a control+C allows me to copy text, however, once I build the control into a cab and then view it on a web page, control+C won't copy text.

You can easily recreate this problem by simply creating an activeX control in VB with a multiline textbox with vertical scrollbars on it. Play it from vb and a control+C works fine, build a cab and look the web page the PDW creates and the control+C won't work.

Any ideas why this is happening and if there's anyway to make it work?

Thanks for the help!

SendInput... Doesn't Work? Keybd_event... Doesn't't Work In Win2K
I am trying to doo a shift-insert (paste) to a richtextbox.
My code for the keybd_event works fine in Win NT and Win 98 but doesn't work in Win2K even though it says it is supported. Here is my code for SendInput which looks good to me but doesn't work?!?

Dim inputevents(0 To 3) As INPUT_TYPE ' holds information about each event
Dim keyevent As KEYBDINPUT ' temporarily hold keyboard input info
Dim mouseevent As MOUSEINPUT ' temporarily hold mouse input info
Dim ret As Long

' Load the information needed to imitate pressing the shift key.
With keyevent
.wVk = VK_SHIFT ' the shift key
.wScan = 0 ' not needed
.dwFlags = 0 ' press the key down
.time = 0 ' use the default
.dwExtraInfo = 0 ' not needed
End With
' Copy the structure into the input array's buffer.
inputevents(0).dwType = INPUT_KEYBOARD
CopyMemory inputevents(0).xi(0), keyevent, Len(keyevent)

' Load the information needed to imitate pressing the insert key.
With keyevent
.wVk = VK_INSERT ' the insert key
.wScan = 0 ' not needed
.dwFlags = 0 ' press the key down

End With
' Copy the structure into the input array's buffer.
inputevents(0).dwType = INPUT_KEYBOARD
CopyMemory inputevents(0).xi(0), keyevent, Len(keyevent)

' Do the same as above, but for releasing the insert key.
With keyevent
.wVk = VK_INSERT ' the insert key
.wScan = 0 ' not needed
.dwFlags = KEYEVENTF_KEYUP ' release the key
.time = 0 ' use the default
.dwExtraInfo = 0 ' not needed
End With
inputevents(1).dwType = INPUT_KEYBOARD
CopyMemory inputevents(1).xi(0), keyevent, Len(keyevent)

' Do the same as above, but for releasing the shift key.
With keyevent
.wVk = VK_SHIFT ' the shift key
.wScan = 0 ' not needed

' Now that all the information for the four input events has been placed

ret = SendInput(4, inputevents(0), Len(inputevents(0)))

ShowInTaskbar Doesn't Work With MDI Form
I have a parent MDI form with a few children (what a nice family ).

Now I want the parent MDI form to be removed from the Taskbar (because it is minimized to the system tray). But MDI forms don't have the ShowInTaskbar property...

Maybe there is an API function to remove it from the Taskbar?

I've already searched this forum but dind't find anything...

Thanx a lot!

Form.ScaleMode Doesn't Work Properly
Hi everybody,
you can tell from this post that I'm an extreme newbie to VB.
I want to do a pretty easy thing, resizing the controls in the form when the user resizes the form.
Here's the code I use:

Private Sub Form_Resize()

Form1.ScaleMode = 3

With Command1
.Left = 10
.Top = 10
.Width = 100
.Height = Form1.Height / 10
End With

With Picture1
.Left = 10
.Top = Command1.Height + 30
.Width = Form1.Width - 20
.Height = Form1.Height - Command1.Height - 50
End With

Label1.Caption = Form1.Width

End Sub

Label1 gives me a number that is bigger than 10000! I'm pretty sure that Form1.width returns the width in Twips even though I have set the scalemode to 3 (Pixels)

Does anybody have an idea what's going on here?

Thank you for reading

System Tray Icon Doesn't Work With WebBrowser Control

I have a simple VB6 app with a WebBrowser control and have added the System Tray Application from CypherSolutions that I've used loads of times in other apps.

Problem is - whilst the window is visable the right-click option doesn't work on the system tray icon - if I minimise the window - it's ok.

I've uploaded the app to if anyone wants to take on the challenge!

This has been driving me crazy for ages - can anyone shed any light?



Adodb Control Suddenly Doesn't Work... RunTime 91 Error
I have a form in a VB6 project that has Adodc controls on it. I went to add another adodc control but when I tried to reference it, it gave me a Run-time 91 error (object variable or with block variable not set). So I gave the new adodc control the same settings as an old one (old one meaning a control that was on the form already and does work) I am using a ref to a data link file.

So now I have 2 adodc controls that are exactly the same. However, when I run the form, the old control works (meaning I can hit the movenext, moveprevious, etc buttons on the control), but the new adodc control is grayed out and those buttons are inactive.

Any ideas??

Form Resize Limit! I Have The Code! It Doesn't Work When Border = 0 !
In the following way I made a minimum of 3000 twips and a maximum of 7000 twips resize limit beyond which a user cannot resize the form.

Private Sub Form_Resize()
If Width >= 7000 Then
Width = 7000
End If
If Width <= 3000 Then
Width = 3000
End If
End Sub

I also want to make the border = 0 so that the title bar does not show.The above commands works fine if the border is set to sizable but when its set to 0 it does not work. Is there any way I can do it with the border set to 0?

SSTab On ActiveX Control And CmdButton.Cancel =True Doesn't Work
I have a SStab on an UserControl. The UserControl has DefaultCancel = True. Now when you drop that UserControl on a dialog box. The Cancel button on the dialog box has the property Cancel = True.

The Usercontrol has a number of other objects on it. If the focus is on any object even on objects inside the tab, pressing the escape key will work. If the focus is on one of the tabs (of the SSTab,) pressing escape key doesn't do anything. QA and Product management wants it work. How do I do that?

Checking Language Doesn't Work. Right Code But It Doesn't Like Me ;-( HELP
Hello together,

I have allready found the Code that I need for my tool, but it doesn't work.


Option Explicit

Private Declare Function GetLocaleInfo Lib "kernel32" Alias "GetLocaleInfoA" (ByVal Locale As Long, ByVal LCType As Long, ByVal lpLCData As String, ByVal cchData As Long) As Long

It isn't interesting, which country settings I have choose. Why doesn't work it?!
What must I do?


Seems Like Msscript Control ".state = Connected" Doesn't Work?
I want the msscript control to act as an event sink in vb6. I have found several references to this on msdn and othe rplaces, but no working examples. In theory, I should be able to do this:

myscriptcontrol.AddObject "mybutton", Command1
myscriptcontrol.Addcode "sub mybutton_Click()" & vbCrLf & _
            "msgbox" & Chr(34) & "button click" & Chr(34) & vbCrLf & "end sub"
myscriptcontrol.State = Connected

Then when Command1 is clicked the event should be passed down to the mybutton_Click through the script control.

But it doesn't work and my work will be much cleaner if I can make it work.

How To Move A Form Underneath A Control
Hi to all,

I am having trouble about positioning a certain form underneath a command button. There is a command button if Form 1 and when the user clicks the comand button, Form 2 must appear exactly below that command button. I have tried changing pixels and twips (the form's scalemode) but I can't get it to work. I also tried API's but since I am still a beginner and have found trouble in grasping its ideas. Maybe a little clue and enlightenment would be a big help?

Do I still need to consider about the screen? the parent form? or are there other considerations I have not taken into account of?

Thanks and god bless all.

MDI-Child Form Hides Behind Main MDI Form When Another MDI Child Form Is Opened
MDI-Child Form Hides behind Main MDI Form when another MDI Child form is opened via code within the first MDIChild form.

Anyone know why this happens?

Even if I click the MDI Parent form on the main blank body. the child for that is open hides behind the Parent MDI Form.

Help Needed In Activex Writing - Want To Move Control On Form

I have written a few activex controls so I'm familiar with how its done. But one thing I've never done before that I want to do is to move the control itself on the form its on. For the Usercontrol name, there is no Left or Top properties to it. Is there any way from within the activex code itself I can move the control on its parent form with the Left/Top properties?


User Control Launches Child Form Off-center Even When STartUpPosition Is CenterOwner
I just encountered this interesting bug. Create a simple user control consisting of a button and a form. Clicking on the button should show the form modally. The form's StartUpPosition is CenterOwner.

Build this OCX file and use it in a second project where the user control is placed off-center of the form. Run the program.

When you click on the User Control button on the form, the child form is launched centered to the user control, not the parent form. Any idea how to resolve this?


Image Doesn't Move...
I am making this program, where on one form you use the arrow keys to move an image around the form. The problem is it doesn't seem to work.

Private Sub Form1_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift as Integer)

Select Case KeyCode
Case vbKeyUp
'action - Moves image
Case vbKeyRight
'action - Moves image
Case vbKeyLeft
'action - Moves image
Case vbKeyDown
'action - Moves image
End Select

End Sub
What is the problem here? I have tried everything to fix it. I even changed all that Select Case to If-Then but still nothing. I changed to image to a label, command button, shape and a checkbox, but nothing still. I have tried putting breakpoints and this is how they came out...

Private Sub Form1_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift as Integer)

Select Case KeyCode
Case vbKeyUp 'Oddly this breaks on any keypress that is NOT that arrow, hmm.
'This line does not break on any keypress
Case vbKeyRight
'This line does not break on any keypress
Case vbKeyLeft
'This line does not break on any keypress
Case vbKeyDown
'This line does not break on any keypress
End Select

End Sub

I am sooooo confused , I thought it might be a setting with the form or something, because nothing works..

Anyone know what is wrong here??


Box Doesn't Move When Key Is Pressed.
I used the following code to move a shape in a form and it worked fine:

Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)

Select Case KeyCode
Case vbKeyD
Shape1.Left = Shape1.Left + 50
Case vbKeyA
Shape1.Left = Shape1.Left - 50
Case vbKeyW
Shape1.Top = Shape1.Top - 50
Case vbKeyS
Shape1.Top = Shape1.Top + 50
End Select
End Sub

I then wanted to do the same in another project, i coded it but it didn't work. After a while of playing around i copied the code into the new project, but it still didn't work. The Shape is named the same as in the first project.

Why does it not work? Is there a better way to do it?

Thanks GW

RTB Text Doesn't Move
Ok I have an RTB named Mhtml and a menu button named opn. What i'm trying to do is load the text from a file into the rtb. Here's my code.

Private Sub opn_Click()
Mhtml.Text = ""
Dim strdata As String
Open CD.FileName For Input As #21
    Do Until EOF(21)
        Line Input #21, strdata
        If Mhtml.Visible = True Then
            Mhtml.Text = Mhtml.Text & strdata
            main = main & strdata
        End If
Close #21
    file = CD.FileName
    Dim fname() As String
    fname = Split(file, "")
    Me.Caption = fname(UBound(fname)) & " ~ SimpleHtml"
End Sub

This loads the text but all on one line and even when you hit return it stays on the one line. any help would be greatly appreciated.

How Do I Move Between Records In A Child Recordset

(RESOLVED)make Mdi Child Regular Form And Then Back To Mdi Child?
I have a MDI parent form that loads several children based on which button on a toolbar the user selects. I also want to provide a menu for the user to view each form individually outside the parent form as a regular form. Is it possible to do? Why? Well in a previous version of my software, users had to select each form individually to update information. I am enhancing the software so that they can update any of the forms in the same place by using mdi parents and children. However, some users are used to the old way and still want that as an option. But when I call the new forms, they load inside the parent form. Help anyone???

Child MDI Form Close - Other Child Forms Repaint/bleed
I have an application that has multiple Child MDI forms.

when one of the child forms are unloaded (by user or by code), another child form becomes 'active' and it repaint's itself.

During the time it takes to repaint, it looks like it resizes it selft, and the outlines of controls (mhtree, etc) appear like ghost windows on the form.

I've tried using LockWindowUpdate, but it doesn't seem to do anything.

Does anyone know what can be done to stop the form from 'ghost painting' itself?

Any ideas are welcome

ADODC's Arrows Doesn't Move The DataGrid's Arrow
I have a problem. Consider the table below as my DataGrid and the one below it as the ADODC. . .

Customer Number Customer Name
> 345 Morrie
333 Mikel
093 Lorna
342 Cass
|<<|< Customer |>|>>| (<-This is the ADODC bar)

I have connected my ADODC to the DataGrid. I have also connected the ADODC to my database and the DataGrid displays the database's contents just fine. But the thing is, whenever I press the left/right arrows on the ADODC bar, the arrow on the datagrid (>) doesn't move up or down (or in other words, it doesn't jump to the next row). It remains static (it remains on the first row). What could be the problem? The datagrid isn't locked.

Why Doesn't This Work?
I'm trying to click on something that is in the lstEmails listbox that is 21 items down and it will then select at item in list1 listbox that is the first item.

If I were to select the 22nd item in the lstEmails listbox, it would then jump 300 down in the list1 listbox.

List1.ListIndex = (lstEmails.ListIndex - 20) * 300

even this doesn't work:

List1.ListIndex = lstEmails.ListIndex - 20: List1.ListIndex = List1.ListIndex * 300

Here's the HTML

HTML Code:
<input name="Entity" type="hidden" id="Entity" value="EntityID=140947575;EntityType=User" />
<input name="ImageToUpload" type="file" id="ImageToUpload" lang="de-de" size="24" />
<input name="UploadID" type="hidden" id="UploadID" value="1342777561" />
<input name="ViewImagesURL" type="hidden" id="ViewImagesURL" value="" />
<input type="submit" name="ButtonUpload" value="Upload" onclick="if (parent.beginUpload) parent.beginUpload();" id="ButtonUpload" />
I'm using:

wb.document.all("ImageToUpload").Value = "C:Imagesimage.gif")
end sub

It doesn't seem to fill in the textbox, however.

Why Doesn't It Work?
Hi. I've recently been working on a music player, Eden 2. It worked fine until I formatted my HD and installed Win 2k Pro (I used to have ME). Since then whenever I run it, it won't play any music - and if I try to play it from the playlist it comes up with an error. Could somebody please work out why it's not working?
Cheers all

Why Doesn't This Work?

I have a form with 10 labels and 1 button. When the user clicks the button a random number is generated and placed in the first available empty label. The program loops through until all the labels are filled. However, all the labels must be different. So a check is made to see if the random numder generated already exists. If it does the check exits and the loop starts again with a new number and so on. That's the theory but my code doesn't work can you point me in the right direction?


Dim count1, num1 As Integer

Private Sub cmdNew_Click()

Dim x As Integer


count1 = 0

Do Until count1 = 9

'create a random number
num1 = Int(Rnd() * 10)

For x = 0 To count1

'find a label to put it in
If num1 = Val(Label1(x).Caption) Then

Exit For


Label1(x).Caption = num1
count1 = count1 + 1

End If

Next x



End Sub

Why bother? I want a simple activity where children can drop and drag numbers into their correct order.

Thanks Paul

Why EOF Doesn't Work?

Some of you ask me why I wasn't using EOF in my code, so now I need to ask you, because if I use EOF in the code below, nothing happens, the compiler doesn't retunrs any error message but the code doens't updates the list. Why?


'lstBox Loop:
Dim I As Integer
I = 0
Do Until I = ExtSpa.EOF -> 'I was using .RecordCount
I = I + 1
lstSpaExt.AddItem ExtSpa("SpaNum") & ExtSpa("SpaDate")


Very thanks.
