Visual Basic (Coding) - Child Form To Open Within A Panel On Its Parent?

Mar 2, 2012

I have created a (kind of) 'Desktop' Form for the main basis of my program. Basically it is made up of 3 panel controls.

1. Holds all buttons which load the different forms (Like the windows start menu when expanded). name: StartMenuPanel

2. Holds Information on log in deatails. name: LogCheckPanel (very thin panel at top of screen)

3. Main panel which takes up the majority of the screen (where I want the forms to load). name: MainPanel

My aim is: When a button is clicked from the 'StartMenuPanel' the form will load with-in the 'MainPanel'.

I tried changing the start position to 'centre parent', but the panels are in the way so some of the childform is overlayed by the panels.


When I run this I get the following error: 'Top-level control cannot be added to a control'.

I hope I've explained this well enough.

Open A Visual Basic Application Created In 2002?

Dec 31, 2011

How can I open a Visual Basic application that I created in 2002? I downloaded a current version of  Visual Basic Express and was able to connect a new project to the .mdb files but I couldn't figure out how to open the other files which I need to actually use the application.

Ideally I'd like to run the .exe file, but it doesn't seem to be compatible with Windows 64-bit. Alternatively I'd be happy recreating it with the various components if I could figure out how to access them.

Shortcut Keys Not Working?

Feb 16, 2010

I have an application which I am trying to implement shortcut keys in. The application contains a main window from which dialog popups can be opened. I am having difficulty implementing the shortcut key functionality on the popup windows. I have the following code in one of the popup windows, and even though the first three key entries are the exact same as on the main window (except for the actual button names), which works, the same code does not work on the popup.

Private Sub frmInduction_KeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles Me.KeyDown
If e.KeyCode = Keys.Control + Keys.S Or e.KeyCode = Keys.F5 Then


I am opening the popup window with the following code- is there any way that the problem could be caused by how I am opening the popup?

Using frm As frmChangeValue = New frmChangeValue
End Using

Using The MenuStrip ShortCut Keys?

Sep 22, 2008

I'm having a spot of trouble working out how menustrip yet again.I have an MDI project. A child form contains a menustrip that has shortcut keys defined... F1 through F4 at design time. At run-time the child form menustrips are merged into the MDI parent form menustrip.The Function keys do not cause the menu to drop down. *Frutz* I thought okay. I'll use the control's keypress event to trap the F1 key and cause the menu item to drop down Apparently the menu Item is not available in the child form since it was merged to the MDI parent menustrip...*Frippity Frutz* Okay... Call the MDI parent menustrip from the child form...."No menustrip object found".

How To Disable Menustrip Shortcut Keys

Jul 16, 2009

I have a VB 2008 form with about a dozen buttons that use ALT+key shortcuts, e.g. names beginning &S, &N, etc.  I also have a menustrip with a couple of entries but I have not assigned shortcut keys to any of them. However, three of the entries on the menustrip begin with S, N, and E. The result is that the shortcut keys for those buttons don't work - instead the shortcut activates the menustrip item.  For example, ALT+E brings up the Exit on the menustrip instead of activating the button with the &E... label. I even tried setting the shortcut for the menu item to something totally different, but it doesn't matter.Even though I have programmed something different, the menu strip takes precedence on the shortcut. is there any way to just disable shortcut keys on the menustrip? What I've done for now is alter the names of my menustrip items by numbering them, e.g. "5 Exit" instead of "Exit" so that ALT+5 does the exit and leaves ALT+E for the button I want it to be associated with.

Assign And Pressing The Shortcut Keys For VS 2010?

I've encountered another minor problem with using vs do you assign shortcut keys? I've read you just click in the shortcut keys option then press the buttons you want to be your shortcuts- this however just acts like I'm pressing the shortcut keys for vs. for instance alt x, which I want to be exit, takes me to debug. Typing alt + x in manually gives me an error saying what I've put in is invalid.
