SSTab, TabStrip, or Multipage
I am very much a beginner. I need to use one of the above components, but none of them do what I want. I know you can change the background color behind the tabs. I know you can change the text color by changing the foreground property. Is there any way to change the color of each individual tab/page? The color is currently a drab gray. I think a different color for each tab page would help the user recognize which tab is currently active. Thanks for the help!

Sounds like a version issue to me. Try deleting the reference to the Crystal ocx and rereferecing the control in your application.

Text Files and Text Boxes
Hello, , I am sure that this is going to be a simple problem to fix, but I have just started a very steep learning curve with Visual Basic 6 in that I have to alter a program that has already been written, and I am a complete novice to VB., , What I need to do is to read in a text file which has multiple lines. The information that is read in then has to be displyed in a text box for the user to read. i.e. one line in the text file should appear as one line in the text box. Is there a simple way of achieving this, or can someone point me in the right dircetion for finding a solution., , Thank you for your time., , Gary Park

Keystroke capture
I need a function that either disables every keystroke, and keystroke combination, other than keystrokes that I specify, or captures the keystrokes and sends them to any desired function. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance

the form keydown event is what you want. Set the form KeyPreview to true and this event will capture the key events first. From this event you can check the key that is down and make the decision about what function to call. You can then set the keycode to 0 to cancel the keypress.

Error: Control disconnecting from its clients
Hi,, , I'm getting an error that seems to be random. In the app several data controls are refreshed. The first time this process occurs one of them causes the following error:, , "The object invoked has disconnected from its clients", , Oddly, once the error occurs the first time, the same process of refreshing data controls works fine., , I've researched this on the net and found several similar circumstances with various other controls: embedded excel controls, crystal controls, etc. It seems all of these problems occur using Windows 2000, NT or, in my case, XP. These apps always work on earlier versions of windows., , The closest I came to a solution was something having to do with fixing a crystal dep file but that doesn't address my problem., , Any ideas would be appreciated., , Neil

Fisrt of is the ans variable declared as a integer, if so try this code, it just might work., , if msgbox("Are You Sure?",vbQuestion+VbYesNo) = vbYes then, , delete cells, , end if, , Or maybe you can set the buttons to vbOkCancel and then try to use the vbCancel = true statement in your if statement.

You should be able to reference the TAPI library and use the COM interface. There is also a telephone COM interface available in the MS speech SDK.

Masked Edit control problem with XP
Hi,, , I have a vb6 app that runs fine under windows 95 to windows 2000. I've been testing our applications with windows XP and have found that the masked edit control in this particular application is displaying some strange behavior: It is black, making the black text unreadable. If I outline the text, it's visible but just barely. Do I need a new version of the ocx? Do I need to use a regular text box? Is there a fix for this?, , Thanks,, Neil

Mary, , You would get a better response to this query if you asked in the VB forum. Common mistake lots of people make, but many users only surf the forum that relates to their field of expertice. :)

Background Image Control
I am developing an application using Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0. I need an image control for displaying a background picture of a form, on which other smaller images and shapes (such as circles or lines) are displayed and moved by the user. The problem with the basic VB image control is that its rendering capabilities are not sufficient, and moving other images upon it during runtime results in a very disturbing "flickering" effect., , I thought of using the GTImage ActiveX control, but when I tried to use it I couldn't move it to the background and place other images or shapes on top of it. , , Is there any way of doing that using this control ? Are there any other image controls I can use, or any other ideas on how to solve the problem ?

Datagrid cannot initialize data bindings
I have a VB app that uses a datagrid to display a recordset from a SQL Server DB. It's a 3-tier app with the user IF calling a function in a dll that returns the recordset with the following code:, , Set DataGrid1.DataSource = PD.LoadGrid(1, sConnect, 0), , The app and dll have been loaded on the DB server and on a user's system that accesses the DB over the network. The dll is registered on both. The app runs fine on the user's system but when trying to run it directly on the server, I get a msgbox with "Cannot initialize data bindings" and Datagrid as the title. The MSDATGRD.OCX file is registered on both machines. This is a problem because many of their users will run the app from a Terminal Server session to the DB server. Any ideas why this is happening?
