Read And Writing New Line To Multiline Registry String
I've been a bit confused with some of the registry examples I've seen so far...
Theres a registry string that may or may not exist. If it doesn't I want to add it. I need to check this string and if it does exist I need to write a new line without overwriting the previous data.
How can I achieve this?
Sorry if the question is vague.

How To Read Each Line From Multiline Textbox?

My question is...how can I do the same thing, but read each line from a
multiline textbox instead of a text file?
Thanks in advance,
Read Specific Line Of Multiline Textbox?
I've only been working with VB for a very short time. I'm trying to read a specific line of a multiline text box. For example, I wish I could do something like this:
Line4Data = txtBox.Text (line = 4)
Is there an easy solution to this? Everything I've read starts talking about SQL databases and blows my mind.

Writing Blank String Values To The Registry
I have just started to use the API for the first time to read/write from the registry and i have come accross a problem.
I'm writing a pair of utilities, the first is the actual utility the other is a configuration util for the first.
The util is designed to shell out and load a program and pass command line paramaters, im storing the paramaters in Hkey Current User.
I have pasted the sample from the API Guide in to a module and got the config util to write to the registry, the problem is that then i load the program back up and it reads the values i have stored it comes up with an error, i Tracked it down with debug and found it was when it was trying to read a string i had set to the contents of an empty textbox.
I need to be able to write nothing in this field if possible
How do i work around this problem?

String Truncated When Read Via Line Function
I am reading in a txt file that looks like this:
When I run my code, the first column is coming only as 33,which I don' understand why it is doing it that way. I really don't want to split this in an array b/c that increases the complexity of what I am trying to achieve.
Here's my code:
Dim claimnumber, flag As String
Dim fileNum As Integer
fileNum = FreeFile
sFile = "O:5 Prj MgmtQA SysAutomationTestScriptsClaimsGUIFilesQNAcl.txt"
'Opens the input file and reads in the values
Open sFile For Input As #fileNum
Do While Not EOF(1)
Input #fileNum, claimnumber, flag
Debug.Print claimnumber, flag
Search File For String, Read Next Line
I am writing a program for MSN Instant Messenger, and one of the features I am adding will store away messages in a file, and at runtime, put the names ("Name=blah" in the text file) into a menu array (would be "blah" in the menu). I have the menu part solved, but would like to have it put the away message that corresponds with the name into a global AwayMessage variable.
IE, you go to the menu item "Away", and click "I am away"
In the text file, it will find 'Name="I'm Away"', and store I'm Away in the menu array
Message="I'm away from the computer"
Is how the text file would be set up. What I need to know is how to pull the "I'm away from the computer part" from the text file, based on what was clicked. The code I currently have is below:
Private Sub mnuNames_Click(Index As Integer)
Dim caption As String
Dim sFile As String
Dim lFile As String
Dim line As String
caption = mnuNames(Index).caption
sFile = "C:Documents and SettingsmikeDesktopmessages.txt"
lFile = FreeFile
Open sFile For Input As #lFile
Do While Not EOF(lFile)
Line Input #lFile, line
If Not Len(line) = 0 Then
' Process lines that aren't blank and contain the
' target text.
If InStr(line, caption) Then
IMClient.LocalState = MSTATE_AWAY
' Close the input file.
I tried my best to explain my problem, but it's not always easy to type everything out, so please bear with :-)

Text File Manipulation - Goto Nextline And Read Line As String
At the moment, I have to read information line by line from a text file, and write approproate information

The input text file is something like this:
Name1 CA USA John Smith

I am trying to search an option that it goes to next line and validate whether the line is not null, then
go ahead and proceed. Otherwise, search for Name2

Writing A Multiline Memo Field To Excel
I'm having a problem with formatting of a multiline memo field when I put it into an Excel cell. The memo field stores customer addresses in an Access database, is read into VB, then exported into an Excel template.
The problem is that every line break in the address appears as a small square once in the Excel cell. Its still breaking the line properly, but the small sqaures need to be manually deleted by the user.
Does anyone know if there is a string manipulation I can do to it before writing to Excel to remove these characters?
The line I'm using now is:
obWorkBook.Worksheets(iQuoteSheet).Range("A" & 10) = txtWorkAddress.Text
Line By Line Text File Read And Correct Each Line
Can anyone help me create a small program or have any pointers
on pieces of code that reads a text file from folder "unfixed" then
fix the contents and then store the corrected contents
in another folder "fixed" and then move the file in folder "unfixed" to folder "old"
Details of contents.
There is a space infront of each line that should be removed.
Between the first group of numbers and the second there should be a zero for every space.
Then after the second group of numbers there should be just one space and the rest trimed off.
011531015222360000500355 3350505212004 50122
011531015222360000500363 5336305212004 6255
011531015222360000503465 2404505212004 50022
011531015222360000503463 1345205212004 50025
02153101522236 13 1503256
The @ symbol represents where a space should be.
I would like to read the file and then correct it and then
place the fixed contents in another folder with the original name.
Below is how I would like it to look.
I have a problem reading a text file with multiple lines and displaying it to a textbox.
Example my test.txt contains,
I want the 3 lines of letters to be display into a text1 box, the text1 box is set to Multi = True and have a scroll bar.
Below is what i have, it is taken in here.
Private Sub Command1_Click()
Open "C: est.txt" For Append As #2
'Print #2, Text1.Text
Print #2, Text2.Text
Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim val As String
Open "C: est.txt" For Input As #1
Do While EOF(1) = False
Line Input #1, val
Text1.Text = val
I have try to change some of it but it still cant work in printing everything into the textbox.
Do While EOF(1) = False
Line Input #1, val
Text1.Text = val & vbCrLf
Text1.SelLength = Len(val & vbCrLf)
Thinking that the focus cursor keep overwrittening the previous text been print in the textbox. But i am wrong.
Please guide thanks.

How To Manage The Length Of Each Line In A Multiline Textbox?
I have a multiline textbox, and I would like to manage the length of each line. Once each line reaches 45 characters, I would like to automatically insert a VBCRLF in between each 45 characters with a maximum of 5 lines. So the entire textbox can only have a maxlength of 225 characters with 5 lines of 45 characters.
I would like to place the code in the textbox_change event so that it automatically formats the text, inserting carriage returns where necessary.
Any guidance or source code is much appreciated.
