  • 1. Speeding up sendkey in VB2005 - is it possible?
    Sendkey is so slow... Hi, I would like to send text via the keyboard to another process. In my example I use notepad as a destination - later this will be replaced by a command window. My problem: Sendkeys only transmits about 6 characters per second, I can type faster than this. The code is: (VB 2005 Express Edition) ############################################ Imports System Imports System.Threading Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic Dim Sendtext As String Private proc As Process Private processes() As Process processes = Process.GetProcesses() For Each proc In processes If proc.ProcessName = "notepad" Then AppActivate(proc.Id) Thread.Sleep(200) ' Send the keystrokes to the notepad application. Sendtext = "hello world - can this type faster than me?" SendKeys.Send(Sendtext) ' I also tried: 'My.Computer.Keyboard.SendKeys(Sendtext, True) End If Next ############################################ This code finds the notepad window, activates it and starts sending the text. Letter by letter. It's way to slow to be of any use. My goal is to transfer about 100 characters to a window that does not accept the Clipboard. If there are way of speeding up the Sendkey command or a better way to send text input to a known process? Thanks for reading this. Any help is appreciated.

  • 3. DTPicker
    I have a VB6 project where I am using the ADO with MS Jet. I am using the DTPicker to set the date. The DataSource is set to the datPrimaryRS and the DataField is set to the Date field of the database. When I launch the application, it bombs and returns a message box saying - Unable to bind to Field or DataMember: 'Date'. The text boxes all work correctly, but not DTPicker. What does this mean?

    Hi, I'm on a Windows XP box. I was given a bunch of visual basic files in both VB 3.0 and VB4.0. I've been told that these files contain source code and can be built to make executable programs.

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
