  • End of year wrap up (2011)

    BLOG I'm currently in the planning stages to rebuild this site.  I've delayed doing this for a long time since I didn't want to "break links"; however, one reason why I don't contribute as much as I used to is the fact that I enjoy the comment interaction.  Thanks to blog spam, I had to disable anonymous ...

  • VB10 vs VB6: Variants are not supported.

    This is part of series of posts categorized under VB10 vs VB6. "Variants are not supported. Object is now the default data type." Wow!  Really?!?!?  Someone actually "defending" (or rather complaining) that Variants are not supported?  In any case... Based on the wording of the entry, it is completely false to ...

  • VB10 vs VB6: Option Base

    This is part of series of posts categorized under VB10 vs VB6. "Option Base is not supported." OK, time for a little history (extremely shortened).  In the beginning, BASIC had 1 based arrays (May 1964).  The creators of BASIC realized that this had certain limitations to it so about five months later when version 2 of the ...

  • VB10 vs VB6: Dynamic Arrays Usage In Structures

    This is part of series of posts categorized under VB10 vs VB6. "Dynamic arrays are not allowed within structures (UDTs) " I'm kind of scratching my head by this statement as I'm not entirely sure what he means by "dynamic arrays".  I will assume that he ...

  • VB10 vs VB6: Array Lower Bounds

    This is part of series of posts categorized under VB10 vs VB6. "Arrays may not have a lower bound other than zero." This, as it turns out, is absolutely true; however, with a twist.  Although VB10 does not allow the "native" array type (the one defined by the language), there are a ton of ways that this can be ...

  • VB10 vs VB6: Private Class Variables

    This is part of series of posts categorized under VB10 vs VB6. "Private class variables are not private to the class instance." This is another one of those "huh?" responses.  However, I'll go ahead and discuss it anyway. As documented in the VB6 Programmers Guide on page 429, "It's just as easy to ...

  • VB10 vs VB6: ByVal/ByRef within API calls.

    This is part of series of posts categorized under VB10 vs VB6. "Use of ByVal/ByRef directly within API calls is not supported." Huh? Declare Function SetEnvironmentVariable Lib "kernel32" Alias "SetEnvironmentVariableA" ( _   ByVal lpName As String,   ByVal lpValue As String) As Boolean The above ...

  • VB10 vs VB6: As Any

    This is part of series of posts categorized under VB10 vs VB6.  Declare Sub ExternalMethodName Lib "SomeLibrary" (ByVal someValue As Any)  When working with Windows API's, you use the DECLARE statement to define the external method.  In VB6, you could use the As Any variable declaration; doing so would allow you ...

  • VB10 vs VB6: VarPtr, StrPtr, ObjPtr

    This is part of series of posts categorized under VB10 vs VB6. As it turns out, I still have a copy of Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 Programmer's Guide.  This was an excellent resource for learning VB6 and it's what I'll be using as a reference in these posts for comparison. With that said, I have to point immediately ...

  • VB10 vs VB6 (aka VFred vs Classic VB)

    A couple of weeks ago there was a rumor that was flying around regarding VB6 being made open source.  This was completely untrue; however, in the aftermath, the FUD machine has kicked back into gear. A lot of this FUD can be traced to a single source... Karl E. Peterson.  He created and "maintains" the VB.NOT l and can be ...
