MS Acess Help - 3 Differnt Questions
hi - this is my second attempt to ask thius question so i hope i can get it across - this isnt actually urgent yet (due wed) but i mgiht have to split this ito 3 seperate posts to try and get more views/help - though not unless you guys help me here
1) Ok i have a "Meeting" table in access, my employees attend meetings thats have a duration of 1, 3, 5 or 7 hours
the fields in my table are "Start Time" (time), "End Time" (time)and "Duration" (number)
what i want to be able to do is somehow validate that the end time - the start time will = the duration - the problem i have is a time minus a time gives another time and my duration is a number - is there a simple way to do this?
2) The "meeting" table contains the start and end tiome of a meeting, so when the user programs in a meeting - i need to be able to somehow search both the "Start Time" and "End Time" colums to makes sure that the employees isnt already in a meeting - is there a way i can do this?
3) I a differnt table i have a field that is "Yes/No" and a checkbox

Sending Mail Using VB But From Differnt Accounts

MSCOMM Control Acts Differnt On 2k Then 98
I have a program which uses the MSCOMM control to send a string to a com port. On the other end of the port is a label printer. These thing is pretty "dumb" as far as hardware goes and just reads a text string. (Am I the only one one who hates these things? Using Windows Drivers for them is only slightly faster then drying paint and they don't support very basic functions like printing more then one page at a time... to get around this a person must send a text string formatted using a special "Language". These things need to come out of the stone age IMHO.) The code I'm using is pretty simple, but works fine on Windows 2000.
Dim MyString as String
MSComm1.CommPort = 1
MSComm1.Settings = "9600,N,8,1"
MSComm1.PortOpen = True
'I determine the value of MyString Here
MSComm1.Output = MyString
MSComm1.PortOpen = False
Now when I use the same program on a machine running Windows 98, I get nothing. No error, no lockup, just nothing. I've tried on multiple machines and gotten the same result.
On windows 98 I can go to a command prompt and type:
MODE Com1 Baud=9600, parity=N data=8 stop=1
COPY MyText.txt COM1
and the file prints out fine, so I don't think there is anything wrong physically with the computer.
Anyone have any ideas?
"It sounded like a good idea at the time.."
Almost Done, Cant Plot 2 Differnt Lines On Same Graph
THis code wotks, but it will only plot one line. If I comment out either for statement, I will get a line. The tricky thing is that they are both identical (theory vs experimental type of thing) so I want one to be a line (no marker) and the other to be markers only (no line). The problem is that one will overwrite the other..help.

Array Of Multiple Differnt Control Types
Well the title says what I'm trying todo (though I'm not convinced its possible) I'll try to elaborate a little bit. I'm basically adding differnt controls at runtime (using a hidden control, and the Load command). I'm trying to make all of these items appear in a single column down the middle of the page, and also have the ability to delete an item and thus move the other objects into place.
Take a look at my test project... form1 is basically the idea, but using a single control, I'm trying to acheive the same functionality but with multiple controls.
Form2 is my start at an attempt (yes I know they are both textboxes, I thought I'd start with that then move onto multiple types if poss.)

Hi I Need Some Helping Telling A Pointer To Get A Varible From A Differnt Process
Hi i am hacking Battlefield 2142 to give myself unlimited ammo and i need some help.Ok so the way i am going to do this is get the address of a "pointer" that sends me to the variable for Clip size. I am programing this in Visual Basic 6.0 and i need some help coding it. So far i don't have any code, all i have is the pointer address. I Don't know how to tell the pointer that it needs to look under the process name of "bf2142.exe" Once i have the code to tell the pointer to look in that directory it will be pretty easy, an if and then statement but the problem is finding the variable for clip size. first I need some help with the coding part, if anyone can list an example and how to do this it would be much appreciated.

Prevent Multi Line Textbox From Wrapping Incomplete Words To The Following Line
I've created a textbox that will mimic a mainframe screen that has a dimension of 80 X 24.
The following textbox properties are set as follows:
Multiline = True
Word wrap = True
When a user enters text into this textbox the text will wrap after every 80 characters, just like it would when typing on a mainframe screen.
PROBLEM: I would like the textbox to wrap only complete words to the next line...just like this forum textbox that I am typing into right now does..
would anyone know the code to accomplish this?
Thanks in advance..
Ensuring Only 65 Chars Per Line In Multi Line Textbox
I have a text box that can have any number of lines, but each line can only have 65 characters (I'm using the SendMessage API). A blank space is treated the same as a character. Right now I'm adding a carriage return at every 66th character, which works fine if I don't go back and insert or change anything I already typed in. When I do try that the cursor gets put the end of all of the text in the text box. The only way to change any text is to back space to the point where I want to retype something.
I'm curious to know if anyone can give me some ideas about how I should go about doing this.
I'll post my code and you will see why I get pushed to the end of the text
Private Const EM_LINELENGTH = &HC1
charcount = SendMessage(txtDetails.hwnd, EM_LINELENGTH, txtDetails.SelStart, ByVal 0&)
txtDetails.Text = Left$(txtDetails.Text, InStrRev(txtDetails.Text, " ")) & vbCrLf & Mid$(txtDetails.Text, InStrRev(txtDetails.Text, " ") + 1)
txtDetails.SelStart = Len(txtDetails.Text)
Rich Textbox - Making A Given Line The Top Line Displayed

DBList Font Change Per Line
Interesting little question...
I am populating a DBList box from an access database.
Each line that is entered refrences a batch file on a network drive. what I want to do is when I populate the DBList box I want it to verify that the batch file exists using the If FileExist command, My issue is that I don't know how to go one at a time through the list and check each item to ensure the Batch file exists. If the Batch file exists I want to Bold that line of the DBList, if not I want to leave the text alone.
Textbox Compare With Textbox Delimited Per Line
First of all, i loaded a txt file into a txtbox1 - numbers delimited by blanks in rows. There is another one txtbox2 whithin i type some numbers delimited by commas. I want to compare the numbers in txtbox2 with the numbers in txtbox1- line by line and get the common ones per line.
-whats the code for searching the txtbox1... line by line?
-whats the code for comparing (find commons) the values in txtbox2 with the ones in txtbox1 per line?
controls: commonDialog,2 txtboxes,cmdbutton,label that shows the commons
OR suggesting to read the txt file and seek the commons inside it while counting them by line?
See some code:
Open fileLoaded For Input As #1
txtContents.Text = Input(LOF(1), 1) ' i load the file into the txtbox by line
Do While Not EOF(1) ' Loop until end of file.
Line Input #1, numLine 'assign line of txt file into the var numLine

How To Change Font Size On A Single Line
I am using Vb6's standard print object and would like to know how to change the font size in a line of print.
I need to print "123 Welcome 123", on the first line of a page and would like the "123's" to be in a different font size than the "Welcome"
I have experimented with things like
printer.font.size = 20
printer.print Tab(2);"123";font.size=12; Tab(18);"Welcome"; font.size=20; Tab(40); "123"
The result is: 123False WelecomeFalse 123 all at size=20, but properly tabed.
I have looked at using the richtextbox also but the code for a WYSISWYG does not appear to be a simple undertaking.
Here is my text box:
mlngText(0) = CreateWindowEx(WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE, "EDIT", "", WS_VISIBLE Or WS_CHILD, 0, 100, 100, 20, _
mlngSetup, 0&, glngApp, 0&)
How do I change the font for the textbox? I am looking for bold options mainly but anything will help.
Is It Possible To Make A Listview Listsubitems Font Have A Line Or Strikethrough
Is this possible. If not, please advise me. I have a listview which list items from my database.

I can't make the listsubitems another colour cos what if it is written off and has a quantity of zero.

Line Count In 500+ Line Textbox
I have a line count function in a text box but when I get up to 500 to 600 lines I get an overflow when I try to lode the text from the beginning to the current position into a variable. I'm doing it by counting chr(13)'s from the beginning to the current cursor position. Can I trap this error so my app doesn't crash. I'm very unfamiliar with error handleing. Any help would be very appreciated. I think the error number is 6 but the following code does nothing:
if err.number = 6 then
Checkline = mid(text1.text, 0, text1.selstart)

Textbox Font Colour When Not Enabled

Rich Textbox Font Color
I made a chat window for my chat program that when it loads up, it's
rich textbox color alway reverts back to black.
What the chat form does is when you click on the send button, the
message is sent and then the form is unloaded. I have public variables
in place to hold all the font properties. When the user sends a message
back, the chat form or message box loads back up, displaying the new
message. In the form load event, the font properties are reloaded with
the values already held in the public font variables and everything works
except for the font color.
My problem is that even if i have my font color set to red, when the form
loads back up, the rich textbox font color always goes back to black.
I've heard and experienced myself that the rich textbox has flaws in it.
For instance, if the font color is set to red and i change the font bold
property, the font color goes back to black.
I was just wondering if there is a way to subclass the rich textbox to
get it's font color property instead of the Selcolor property.
I noticed the rich textbox has font.bold, font.italic, font.underline and
font.size properties but not font.color. I wonder why?
Part Of Textbox In Bold Or Other Font
Is it possible to put a part of a text in a textbox in another font or bold or something like that??
I have some sort of search possibility in my app and it would be nice to put the found part of text in another font or so (or something else but it must draw the attention).
Is this possible with a normal textbox?
If not, any ideas? Perhaps another control or so?
I'm using VB6.
