i want to use window form application to write this game?View 3 Replies View Related
I am using the SetWindowPos to set a window to the front to capture it (not a window of my own application). However, this works from time to time & that is what worries me.
This does work, if just, let's say have forms open, but it doesn't when I minimize everything & get to the desktop (with that taskbar button). It also returns 1400 error a lot, even with running as administrator.
So I have this code to make a "windows taskbar". When you click on an item, it's supposed to bring that window to the front. The only problem is that's not happening. When I use Debug.WriteLine, it has the right window title, except it doesn't come to the front. What's wrong? There is no EntryPointNotFoundException or anything, it just doesn't bring the window to the front.

I have an windows application from where i start another EXE by using the system.diagnostics.process.
I do as follows:
private myExe as System.Diagnostics.Process
myExe = New System.Diagnostics.Process()
myExe.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory = "...my path ..."
myExe.StartInfo.FileName = "...my exe..."
What code in VB.net 2010 do I need to set a window to come to the front of the screen. What I am trying to achieve is to display an urgent alert type, its a form, for certain reasons I am not using message box.
Following code does not work:
Private Sub frmMessage_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
I used to use VB gazzillion years ago and decided to have a look at MSVB 2010 Express.I want to write Database front end and fallen at the first fence.In the ol' days I used to add a data control (tool) of which the main property was 'data source' (address of a database)I cant see how to do this in 2010 - I have added a 'Binding Navigator' but cant see where to link it to my database
Downloaded Northwind database examples and what do you know - they dont work - database cant connect and i cant see how to connect it
I used a picturebox to allow user draw lines by mouse. I used this code in mouse down:
Dim D As New System.Drawing.Pen(DrawingColor, 2)
Dim g As Graphics = PB.CreateGraphics()
g.DrawLine(D, X1, Y1, X2, Y2)
but when a window appear on front of picturebox... its seams that picturebox redraw itself, so drawn lines erased.
My Front end is VB.net 2008.I have a form. In this form, I have a menu control, this menu control has four buttons.On clicking the first three buttons, open the window with Show() event. and the fourth button open the screen with ShowDialog().Now, One by one I am clicking the button , so finally i have now four windows of this application.(Three with Show() and one with ShowDialog())Right?
Now I am minimizing all the windows with the help of Window + D Button.After this, If I use the keyboard(Alt+ Tab) keys. This is opening the showDialog window on top because , Show dialog's TopMost = True.Now I come back to my problem. That's why I cannot use the show/Showdialog overloaded menthod to pass the Me/form-id .Again, I use the keyboard(Alt+ Tab) keys, to minimized all windows. In the taskbar and Startmenu properties ,I have selected the Group Similar Taskbar buttons.This resulted in the heap of my application windows, one on the other.Now i click on one of my application window , and If I click the window other then the Show Dialog opened Window, this is not bringing the show dialog window to topMost.
Note:- There is no parent child window requirement. That's why I can't use the Show/Show Dialog overloaded method to pass the Me/Form-id
I've been trying to get a list of shared contacts from a shared folder using the etSharedDefaultFolder method but it doesn't work.We use vb 2010 express and outlook 2007

almost perfectly works to disable specific keys. but 1problem. for example : checkbox1 checked and then press button1 L win key disable its okey.but then i press button2 to active keys and press again button1.this time not working disabling keys.
I have a program that u record your clicks then you press a button (Ctrl + E) then it plays them back. What I want is for Ctrl+E to stop them, It would work but it seems like its being overpowered by the mousemoving and clicking. The keyhook did already work before I started on the playback part.
Protected Overrides Sub WndProc(ByRef m As System.Windows.Forms.Message)
If m.Msg = WM_HOTKEY Then
If m.WParam = 2 Then
If started2 = True Then
started2 = False

I have several windows open: VB, IE, Explorer... If I happen to close one accidentally, or on purpose, and reopen it, the buttons on the task bar are all messed up. I get used to them one way and I am constantly switching between the windows.Here is my question: Would I be able, in VB, to 'hook' the taskbar and be able to rearrange the buttons?I have no idea what to search for in Google. I happened upon a program once a while back, A REAL LIFE SAVER!. I could just click and drag the buttons using that one.View 5 Replies View Related
This was the code and this is the thread HERE Ok its working and everything but when i want to perform something when click is noticed it says i cant cross-threads
I'm using code from here - [URL]. And I'm getting the old
A call to PInvoke function 'EliteSwitch!EliteSwitch.MouseHook::CallNextHookEx' has unbalanced the stack. This is likely because the managed PInvoke signature does not match the unmanaged target signature. Check that the calling convention and parameters of the PInvoke signature match the target unmanaged signature.
Error on this line
Return CallNextHookEx(MouseHook, nCode, wParam, lParam)

This is a mix of C# and VB.Net. I have a C# class with with 2 delegates:
public delegate string GetSettingDelegate(string key);
public event GetSettingDelegate GetSettingEvent;
public delegate void SetSettingDelegate(string key, string value);
public event SetSettingDelegate SetSettingEvent;
In a VB class I add handlers to the event:
AddHandler _gisCtrl.SetSettingEvent, AddressOf SetSetting
AddHandler _gisCtrl.GetSettingEvent, AddressOf GetSetting
When I try and remove the handlers:
RemoveHandler _gisCtrl.SetSettingEvent, AddressOf SetSetting
RemoveHandler _gisCtrl.GetSettingEvent, AddressOf GetSetting
SetSetting is OK but GetSetting throws a warning:
The AddressOf expression has no effect in this context because the method arguments to AddressOf requires a relaxed conversation to the delagate type of the event.
Here are the methods
How to fix this and why it is thrown in the first place? The 2 delegates/events/methods look similar enough that I don't know why one is OK and one throws a warning.
Excuse me for posting this, but I have searched both Google along with this forum before asking this question, maybe I'm not using the right keywords but I apologize if it's easy to find.I would like to know how one could close a third-party window (application) if a specified string was found in the window title.View 2 Replies View Related
working with dates has always been a tricky part so let me show you how I handle dates in my application and please could you show how do you handle dates and also feel free to criticise. Normally I would create out a system to be able to save and then load a date note I am using a varchar(50) on my SQL Server db rather than datetime but I understand this is wrong, that's why I am looking for a decent way to work the dates out. My system has worked for me fine so far but if I would have to sort the dates ascending or descending I think I would get into trouble because it is saved as text.
I am unsure how to write in message box functions for a pop up window. I need OK and Cancel buttons to display with my message box. The Ok button needs to close the message box and the Cancel button to close the entire program. Here is what I have so far

I am using Visual Studio 2010 Professional in trial mode... and suddenly the Output window won't show my Debug.Write() stuff. It had been showing it for the past month.I have been using the 2010 version for 30 days (after upgrading from Visual Studio 2003) in trial mode. I just renewed the trial for the extra 60 days, and the "About Visual Studio" window says I still have 59 days left.
I have verified that the application is running properly, without errors. When I purposely generate an error, the Output Window properly shows the error and the stack trace I've already checked my Build>Configuration... it's in "Debug" mode, not "Release". The Debug.Write() text is not going to the Immediate window, either.One other point, I tried running the same application in the Visual Studio 2010 Express Edition, and it complained that it could not debug the specified code, though it did properly build it so that it would run in the build. Could Visual Studio 2010 Express have modified something in my project files to disable the debugging output?

I'm currently trying to write a program in VB.NET which fluidly changes the DWM window colorization colors in Windows 7.I first tried to edit Registry values directly, but I had to restart the UXSMS service. This solution was unsatisfying, because of the toggle of the taskbar.
I'm now searching for a function in a DLL such as user32.dll or themecpl.dll which can reproduce the behaviour of control panel when setting the window color.I'm now on IDA, searching for the adquate function (CColorCplPage::SetDwmColorizationColor seems good!).

I have a VB.NET windows application in which I'm using Outlook's contacts as my address book to get a list of email addresses. I'd like it to use Outlook as the address book, but if an Outlook mailbox has not been set up or there are no contacts then I don't want Outlook to come up at all. The problem that I'm having is as soon as I try to access Outlook the Outlook Startup Wizard comes up, which I don't want to happen. Here is my code:
Dim ao As Outlook.Application
Dim ons As Outlook.NameSpace
Dim Contacts As Outlook.Items

I want to delete several records from a datagridview.
I can delete one by one, but not all in one go. I want to select several rows and then delete.
My code is:
Dim delContacts As String
'strDelContacts = DataGridView1.SelectedRows.Count
strDelContacts = DataGridView1.SelectedCells.Count
I'm trying to detect which contacts are currently opened, the only way I could come up with that was to actually get the items in the windows taskbar then compare the items to the contact list on Msn. This way when Bob@hotmail.com is currently opened my application can show a listbox of all the current opened Msn contacts. Is there an easier way to view the current open contacts with MessengerAPIView 3 Replies View Related
from Windows Vista, user contacts are not stored in .wab files anymore...However, they are stored here:
X:UsersYour User NameContacts
I want to CREATE / GENERATE contacts programatically and save them here in the same format.This format is very simple and is user readable.For example, this sample:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<c:contact c:Version="1" xmlns:c="http://schemas.microsoft.com/Contact" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:MSP2P="http://schemas.microsoft.com/Contact/Extended/MSP2P">
However, although the final file contents will be exactly in the same format, but Windows will not recognize my created files as contacts!This is strange, I am sure they are in the same format!
change the file as format for certain contacts. The issue is that it works fine with all contacts except ones who do not list a Company Name. When it runs it returns this file As Format:

I'm making a program for me and my partner to keep track of our contacts via a DataGridView. The thing is, I'm really confused by Databases. I was wondering if anyone can recommend a database or a solution to do this. I want it to be really simple, MySql is a little too much for what I'm doing, I'm just storing a custom class called "Contacts" into a DataGridView. The "Contacts" class has 3 properties at the moment.Name, Phone, Email. The database also needs to be online so my partner can access it.
