  • 1. Indexed controls
    Hello all ! I'm trying "upgrading myself" (I'm afraid it won't be easy...) from VB 5.0 to VB 2005 Express Edition. In VB 5, I was used to creating indexed controls at design time, let's say lbl(0), lbl(1), and so on... It was quite easy : creating lbl, setting the Index property (0), then Ctrl-C on lbl(0), and Ctrl-V as often as necessary. In VB 2005 Express, I'm unable to find the Index property of a label. In order to understand, I have designed -- under VB 5 -- a very simple project with 2 indexed labels and I have loaded it under VB 2005. It runs but, according to the Property window, these controls are named "_lbl_0" and "_lbl_1" instead of the expected lbl(0) and lbl(1). In the source code , I can read "lbl(i)", as I have written under VB5. Having a look at the code, I'm unable to understand how it works. It appears to me much more difficult than VB5. Do I have to build my form ONLY with some code and to create my controls at run time ? Thanks a lot for your help. Gabriel
  • 2. ListView and Scrollbars
    I am using Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition. I am wondering if anyone knows of a way to display the vertical scrollbar at all times, even if it is not needed?
  • 3. Modifying someone else's VB software
    X-No-Archive: yes I purchased some software from a company several years ago. The company has recently released an update to the software, and the older version now refuses to run without it. Unfortunately, the new version is plagued with problems, and I'm trying to figure out how I can continue use of the old version. Can Visual Basic 6 programs be reverse engineered? A quick Google search says no. I have an old version of the software from several years ago; I believe it was written with Visual Basic 5. Is it possible that I could reverse engineer this? Thanks Mango
  • 4. VB Compression
    Hello all. I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but here goes: About a year ago, I came across a very nice application in Visual Basic 6 (with full source) that allowed one to compress an arbitrary file with multiple different algorithms, and view various statistics (a histogram, I believe) of the result. Does anyone here know of this program or where to find it again? I've lost the original file, and can't seem to find it in several Google searches. I do remember one thing: the program had multiple classes, each implementing a different compression method. Thanks very much, --AD P.S. I've posted this in comp.compression also.

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.

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
