  • 1. FileListBox and directories with more than 32,768 files!
    I searched the archives and didn't find any discussion of this, so here goes: I have to deal with some directories which have more than 32,768 files in them. A LOT more - some of these directories have over a million and a half files in them (don't ask). Anyhow, I wanted to write a program in VB6 to automatically create a logical directory tree and move the files into proper subdirectories to assure that we don't continue to have the files build up in a single directory like this. Now everything is fine as long as we don't have a directory that's already too big. But I'd also like to have this program be capable of cleaning up these huge directories. Sure, it might take the program hours or days to do this, but it'd still be handy. But the problem I'm running into is that in order to cycle through the zillions of files in one of these directories, I was going to just use a file listbox and do the usual business of incrementing the File.Listindex to go from zero up to file.listcount-1. But gee, it appears that the variables that hold these properties are simple integers. Thus, I see things like a file.listindex of -28,253 :) Is there any way to alter these variables to use long integers so that I can accomodate these unwieldy directories? Obviously, I can't just dimension one of these as if it was a variable - or can I? Thanks everyone. Jim H.
  • 2. VB Powerwrap
    Hello all Has anyone had any experience with VB Powerwrap from Moonlight Software? The following is taken from their site "VP-PowerWrap allows developers to distribute their programs without the host of various OCx's and DLL's. Developed to help Visual Basic programmers distribute their executable file(s) without worrying about runtime dependencies, VB-PowerWrap allows you to package all dll's and ocx's inside the executable of your VB program, with no setup or installation to run." I have not tried it, and am not connected with it in any way, but it sounds interesting & appealing. Regards Tony McGee

  • 4. find process PID
    I need to find the PID of a process when all i know is the file name such as 'notepad.exe'. Ive seen that Shell(strProcess, vbNormalFocus) can give the PID, but it needs the entire program path (wich I don't have). Is there another way? Thanks Dan
  • 5. Setting the color of disabled text
    I would like set some of my text boxes as "txtBox.Enabled = False" However I would like the text "color" to be 'black' instead of grey. I realise that windows has a good reason for setting the text color to indicate that a textbox is not available to the user. I don't want the user to be able to select the text, or to have a drop-down menu available, but I do want to display the text to make it more readable. Is there a way I can change the color of the disabled text. Thanks Charles W

Hi,

A want to play a WMA file in VB6.
I have a mediaplayer control from then msdxm.ocx lib
I use this code


'start code
Private Sub cmdPlay_Click()
  Dim sBestand As String
  If File1.ListIndex > -1 Then
    sBestand = File1.path & IIf(Right(sBestand, 1) = "\", "", "\") & 
File1.FileName
    With MediaPlayer1
      .FileName = sBestand
      If .FileName = "" Then
        Debug.Print sBestand
        MsgBox .ErrorCode & ": " & .ErrorDescription
      End If
    End With
  End If
End Sub
'end code

it works fine with mp3 and wav but I always get the errorcode : -2147467259 
and the discription  can't open check filename and try again
the discription is translated and can be someting like this.

some an idee

Sorry
that must be

sBestand = File1.path & IIf(Right(File1.path, 1) = "\", "", "\") & 
File1.FileName

i Also get the error -2147221164 (class not registerd)

What if you change it to this?
 File1.FileName
     With MediaPlayer1
       If sBestand = "" Then
         Debug.Print sBestand
         MsgBox .ErrorCode & ": " & .ErrorDescription
       Else
       .FileName = sBestand
       End If
     End With

ore testing brengs me to the following

opening a wma in the formload has no problem

after running the code: Set oWMP = New WindowsMediaPlayer
I can't play any wma anymore
the windowsmediaplayer came from the reference wmp.dll
I use the wmp to read the wma tag info. So if i can read the taginfo with
another method the problem is solfed to

ust curious :)
I put mediaplayer from msdxm.ocx and placed a button on a form and voila it
plays ok.
Private Sub Command1_Click()
MediaPlayer1.FileName = "C:\30 Hank Marvin - Nights In White Satin.wma"
End Sub

Is your .wma file playing in windows mediaplayer?
Is your .wma file copyrighted?

es on both
that code works fine
It plays in wmp
and no no protection

it goes wrong after running the code: Set oWMP = New WindowsMediaPlayer
(wmp.dll)
i have tryed some code like your example in the formload and no problems,
but like i wrote after the needed code for reading the wma tags its no
longer possible to play wma but mp3 has no errors
