  • 2. Reading ToolTips captions
    Is there any way to get a VB2005 ToolTip caption to remain on-screen indefinitely, at least until the user moves the cursor away from the control that owns the ToolTip? Occasionally, the ToolTip needs to contain a longer string of text to expalin the use of the control and it takes time (at least 10-20 secs sometimes) to read and comprehend the tip. Also, once a ToolTip has been triggered it often seems reluctant to reappear if the cursor is moved back over the same control. Can this behaviour be changed?
  • 3. Datepicker Update- updates once and once only
    I have a form with Textboxes and 2 datepickers, on the update everything updates to the database just fine bar the 2 Datepickers, they updated to database once the first time only and won't change the new date settings in the database although the textboxes new data is being captured.I have the Databinding set in the Value property. Is there some property in the Datepickers that I'm overlooking?
  • 4. REGEX : move first char to the end of the previous line
    Hallo I need to move the first char of a new line to the last position of the previous line. The char to move is always the squared bracket: ] --- Example, I have: --- Paul and Mary [chapter one ] The boys went to school. --- I need to have: --- Paul and Mary [chapter one] The boys went to school. I presume I need to concatenate the ending char of the previuos line to the first char of the new line, remove the old vbCrLf between them, then set the new vbCrLf after the squared bracket. I'm trying to accomplish this by RegEx, but I have problems. I'm able to match by using ^] but I'm not able to replace. Below is the code, what I have to insert instead of ######## ? ---- ---- ---- Dim MyRegex As New Regex("^]", RegexOptions.IgnoreCase Or RegexOptions.Multiline) Dim myText As String = "" myText = "Paul and Mary [chapter one ] The boys went to school." Dim myMatches As MatchCollection = myRegex.Matches(myText) For Each myMatch As Match In myMatches Debug.Print (myText) myText = Replace(myText, myMatch.Value, "########") Debug.Print (myText) Next
  • 5. Multilanguage
    Hi NG, Ie wrote a really big application in vb6 and now, ie to implement a multilanguage function in it. Ie searched with google for a tool, which i could use to do the localization without having so much work. I now the resource-file.... ...but isnt there nothing else ? It would be nice, when I could change the language at runtime, and not only at program-start (p.e. multilizer) I thought to put the translations into a database. But isn there a tool, that give me all strings from a project ? p.e. like this: 1. Collect a list from all strings in a project 2. User choose which strings should be translated 3. The tool replace the selected strings with variables or functions (which return the selected language string "langstring(language, stringnumber") 4. Output the selected strings from 2. in a list/table I think it wouldn be very difficult to write an app for this, but the tools ie found for localizations are to complex. Frank

Look into WMI. You can get all the settings on the computer.

Hi Noor,

A totally not interesting piece of information when using dotNet.
Why I say that, because it is not managable by you in dotNet.

One of the things the framework manages is the use of memory.

It does when there is processing almost nothing when there is enough. It
starts collecting the garbage and recycling when there becomes to less or
there is any kind of idle time.

So therefore your used memory amount is always unpredictable, however should
be (when it is not basicly to low) always be enough.

I hope this gives an idea?

Have first a look in the enviromnent class and for what is not in there use 
the WMI classes.

I hope this helps,
