    Hello dear developers

    I’m going to add skin to my form in VB6

    how can I do skinning on VB6?

    Helloz! Robert …

    Sorry been late for answer cuase i was away from Net for the past 4 days . about your conversion problem that may be cause of serveral resons!

    * Installation problem : may be your version of MS Access 2003 have some files missing . so i suggest you resinstall your copy of MS Office . and if you using an illegal copy that’s meens your version is full of bugs and errors.

    * also you can use the repair method on Tools menu / Database Untilites and click on Combact Repair database .

    * Try to check your file may be its corrupted due to disk error of something in this case it’s hard to recover your data . by the way make backup files from your access file to aviod wasting information .

    – if toy still have a problem .. if you file in small may be you can send it to me .. or we can find some else way to solve this .

    OK! Mr.Buntina have best wiches and i hope you solve your problem soon!

    Hello dear Brad

    thanks for repling.

    I’m post graduate student try to develop basic electronic editor (which can drag n drop resistor,capacitor etc.) look like VB IDE, have toolbox and form.

    Where can i find the source code for that purpose.

    Can you give me any hint how to create the object in toolbox like resistor.

    How about if i use third party object to put in toolbox like graph activex for example.

  12. aljanjaweedi says:

    dear Hasnim

    I can not understand exactly what! you want ? do you wanna make a software like Curcuit maker? or you wanna made an application that interacts with electronic pulses and control signal !?

  13. Hasnim says:

    Dear Aljanjaweedi,

    Both actually. I want to create VB IDE for electronic lecturer which can draw circuit like Circuit Maker/Pspice and then they can define measurement nodes in drawing to their channels in DAQ card(real circuit at lecturer side). But all these in usercontrol designer so my program later can publish/save it as activex(in html form) into their webserver. So their student can then access the html file with activeX and do the measurement and control.

    Summary: 1. How to create VB IDE with usercontrol designer. 2. How to create object like resistor and node that can be drag n drop to the designer. 3. How to save activeX in html file. 4. For measurement and datasocket, I’m using National Instrument activeX.
