Help Writing A Program To Disable And Reenable Screen Saver?
I need to write a simple little .exe program to disable the screen saver when started, then when you close the program it will automatically re-enable the screen saver. I will use this little .exe for when running games that I don't want the screensaver to come on during..

anyhow, this is the registry key that I need to modify to disable and then re-enable the screen saver...

then on the 'On End' event in the .exe I could reset the registry value like this:

Writing To A TexT File From A Text Box In Visual Basic
i have been looking at how to write text entered in a text box in VB to a text file outside of visual basic, i've searched and had a look in a few bookes etc

the syntax is simple, and easy to understand, this works and prints line after line in the txt file

Open ("C:Documents and SettingsMy Documentsschool.txt") For Output As #1
Print #1, ""
Print #1, ""

but i want the info that is saved into the text file from a text box inside visual basic itself, e.g.
Open ("C:Documents and SettingsMy Documentsschool.txt") For Output As #1
Print #1, Text1.Text

but the problem with it is that each time a new number is entered into thr text box. it over writes the txt in the text file itself, what im after is something where each time text is entered into the text box it is saved into the text file,and it keeps entering text into the text file, so it makes a list of entered text, line after line, not just replacing the text before it, i know how to do this from reading a text file and inputting the info into VB itelf, just doin a if and end statment, untill EOF, but cant get it to do the same as output:/

any ideas?

[VB6] Writing Text Into One Text Box Writes The Text Into Another!
In the title it sounds rather easy but bein quite new to VB6 it seems a little complicated for me.

Navigate to this page:

It's the MSN wierd maker where you type in say:

Normal Text: Hello

Weird: нєℓℓσ

I would like this in my VB app so that when something is typed in the Normal text box the same text will be displayed in the Wierd text box only in that font above. Also the wierd text box must have write disabled so you cannot write anything in the text box, just highlight and copy the result. Help is more than appreciated

Writing To Text Box

Ok this is how things are...

I have a text box and have made it so that when the program loads it gets filled with spaces 80 characters to the right then it will do an vbCrLf. This happens untill it has done this 24 times. I then have it so that you can give it 2 coordinates, x and y and the cursor will jump to that position in the text box.

The problem is that i then need to be able to write something such as a char to that position where the cursor is. Yet things like text1.Print wont work and i cant do text1.text = text1.text & MyCharOrSomething Here

Please help..

Thanks heaps

Writing Out Text...???
Hi all..

I was wondering if it is possible to write out text to the form, when the form has nothing on it??

For an example

Create a new project with just a plane form and a button..

then use this..

Private Sub Command1_Click()
' Declare local variables.
Dim Radius
' Create random RGB colors.
R = 255 * Rnd
G = 255 * Rnd
B = 255 * Rnd
' Position center of circles in the center of the form.
XPos = ScaleWidth / 2
YPos = ScaleHeight / 2
' Generate a radius between 0 and almost half the form's height.
Radius = ((YPos * 0.9) + 1) * Rnd
' Draw a circle on the form.
Circle (XPos, YPos), Radius, RGB(R, G, B)

End Sub

NOTE: this was just taken from an example i found...

You can create the circle on just the form.. and control the x, y position.
Would it be possible to do the same this but to write out text to given x and y possitions?

Or would it be possible to with any other means be able to write out text to given x and y positions?

All i want to be able to do is write out text to a given position and then be able to change that position?

PLease help..


Writing To A Text Box Over, Over, And Over...
Every time I dump 270 characters in a string to this large text box, it appears to show them fresh from the top and the previous string completely disappears.

How many times can I do this in a day ? If I dump this long string of chars over and over and over all day long, like every 10 minutes, is the text box control going to " get full " ? Is there some maximum number of times I can write this long string of chars to this text box ?

Writing To A Text Box From .txt File
I'm pretty new to this game and would appreciate any help. Below is a cut down version of part of a program that I'm stuck on. The writing to a file (cmdAdd) works fine, but I really don't know what to do next to write from the .txt file back to the text boxes. I have sort of started (cmdPopulate) but I can't get anything to display. I want to start with the first record and then read the file sequentially with another button.

Option Explicit

Telephone As String * 15

End Type

recLength = LenB(udtRequest)
filenum = FreeFile()

Open "a:logger.txt" For Append As #filenum Len = recLength

udtRequest.ID = txtID.Text
udtRequest.Name = txtName.Text
udtRequest.Telephone = txtTelephone.Text

Write #filenum, udtRequest.ID, udtRequest.Name, udtRequest.Telephone
Close filenum

End Sub

Writing A Text File
Hi all, is there a way to write all of the files within a directory onto a text file using vb code? please help


Writing Text To A .csv File
Ok, .csv (excel) files are really cool in that you can take any text file and rename is .csv and it will take everything in quotes and everything with a comma after it and put it into cells.

So here's what I'm doing. With VB, I'm taking a .tmp file, stripping a bunch of useless information out of it, and saving it as a .csv file. But it saves it with quotes that encapsulate the entire text, so all of it goes into just one cell. Here's the code:

strNum2 = Len(txtFileName.Text) - 4
fSave = Left(txtFileName.Text, strNum2)
fSave = txtPath.Text + "/" + fSave + ".csv"
Open fSave For Output As #1
Write #1, txtDisplay.Text

I need it to save it verbatim, without adding quotes but can't seem to get it to work... I even tried the rtf.SaveFile thing but it didn't work either. did the same thing.

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance..

Writing Text From Database
Hi There,

I am still a newbie and would appreciate it very much if someone could help me. The problem is only a part of an bigger application that I am developing. The program involves giving the user some text to read. I dont want to hard code the text everytime. I want the give the user for example 5 topics to choose from a list. When he made a choice, the text paragraph chosen, must be loaded from the MS Access database into the textbox.

Thus, there must be 5 paragraph`s in the database (each differ in length), which could be chosen from a list (only the heading). When chosen, it must be loaded to the textbox.

How should one start with something like this, or is there a better way of doing this?


Writing Text To A Printer HDC
I would like to add text to each sheet in a print job.

I am not using the printer object. Instead I am using a PrintManager object from a Autodesk Inventor's API. The PrintManager Controls Print Jobs with a SubmitPrint() function.

Is it possible to use the following API function to write text to it?
I gave it a go and nothing seemed to happen.

How can I write multiple lines to a Text1.text. I have a script that writes to the TEXt1.Text, but it will display the last line it wrote only, it will over write the previous lines. I am using VB6. I need to be able to Append to the Text1 window.


Writing Something In One Text Box Displays Something In Another

E wrote in text1 = є displays in text2
F wrote in text1 = f displays in text2
G wrote in text1 = g displays in text2
H wrote in text1 = н displays in text2

The above just gives a brief example of what im looking for. However when i put any of the unicode characters like: αв∂
They appear as question marks and not as the character they are supposed to be. Is there anything i can do to make VB accept these characters? I would like it so when A is wrote in text1 α appears in text2.
Help is more than appreciated. Thanks everyone

Writing To A Text File.
In one of my applications, I write to a text file, that is occasionally used by another program as well. Everything works fine, so long as the other program is not using the file. However, if the other program happens to be using that file while my application tries to write to it, my program gets killed, and throws an error, like 'Permission denied'.

I was wondering, is there a way to bypass this, so that my application doesnt get killed. Instead, is there a way for it to 'wait' till the file is not being used, so that it can resume writing to it? Hope im making sense here.

Writing Text File
i'm stuck on this, maybe someone could offer some insight. I am creating a text file like this. it works just as it should.

Write #1, CStr(SeqNumber); rs3![ENDORSEMENT]; Addressee; rs3![Address]; rs3![CSZ]; ""; ""; ""; ""; rs3![Barcode]

my problem is i have a combo box that the user can enter in text. i want to loop through the number of list items entered in the combo box (which i have saved in an array) and add them to the beginning of the text line above.

Troubles Writing Text!

I've troubles when i use Gdiplus to write text. I've tried two different ways and unlogically i have two different results!

I use a path way and GdipDrawString way. The path way is used to make borders and a simple shadow. But without talking about font parameters now, it seems the result is different although i think i have the same parameters. The results are different in size for instance.
More, when i use path way all font parameters made on strformat variable are not applied !!!

Please look my code :

Public Sub MakeText(ByVal Graphics As Long, _
ByVal FontRGBColor As Long, ByVal FontName As String, ByVal value As String, _
ByVal x1 As Long, ByVal y1 As Long, ByVal x2 As Long, ByVal y2 As Long, _

If Border Then Call GdipDrawPath(Graphics, PenMain_Sha, Path_Sha)
Call GdipFillPath(Graphics, Brush_Sha, Path_Sha)
End If
If Border Then Call GdipDrawPath(Graphics, PenBorder, path)
Call GdipDrawString(Graphics, value, -1, curFont, TextRect, StrFormat, Brush)
Call GdipFillPath(Graphics, Brush, path)

' Cleanup
Call GdipDeletePath(path)
Call GdipDeletePen(PenMain)
Call GdipDeleteStringFormat(StrFormat)
Call GdipDeleteFont(curFont) ' Delete the font object
Call GdipDeleteFontFamily(FontFam) ' Delete the font family object
Call GdipDeleteBrush(Brush)

If Shadow Then
Call GdipDeletePen(PenMain_Sha)
Call GdipDeleteBrush(Brush_Sha)
Call GdipDeletePath(Path_Sha)
End If
If Border Then Call GdipDeletePen(PenBorder)

End Sub

Can you explain me why i can't have italic or underline string, or others when i use path way? What is the best way between the path way and Gdipdrawstring?

Thanks in advance.

VB6 Writing Text To A Picture Box
In my programme I am generating various text and writing it (by the PRINT instruction) to a picture box on my form.

If each piece of text is less wide than my picture box, this works just fine. However if the text is longer than the picture box is wide, it does not continue on the next line but is lost off the right hand side of the picture box, and hence is not visible to the user.

How do I arrange that a piece of text longer than the width of my picture box will in effect 'line feed' when it gets to the right hand edge and continue on the next line please?

Am a newcomer to VB. I expect the answer is very straightforward - but I can't find a Property of a picture box which allows this to happen. In my current project I got round the problem by having loads of Print instructions (one for each line of text) and made sure that none was longer than the PB width. However should I ever re-size the picture box smaller, this will not continue to work.

Solutions will be gratefully received.

And it works, the only problem I have though. Is that it adds a blank line after the text. And it's for a game broadcast system, so adding a blank line makes the broadcast looks kind of messy. Anybody know how to stop it from adding that extra line? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
