VB2005 Questions

1. Is there a more suitable, dedicated newsfeed for VB2005 yet?

2. I'm confused as to which version to get. I work for a small company and
we will just need VB2005 on my PC. Therefore that tends to suggest the
express version, but I write some pretty complicated stuff (including
SQLServer transactions, network programming etc) and I am wondering what is
missing from the Express version in terms of components, functionality etc.
I don't need team work, collaboration etc. Is there a URL somewhere that
will assist me?

3. Can I get VB2005 on its own? Or do I have to get VB2005 Studio (which I
assume contains C, Java etc which I don't need)

I am finding the Microsoft web site is now quite confusing when trying to
dig down to find the answers.

Thanks

Jerry,

Because it is not official released yet and therefore not even official
declared yet, you will probably have to wait on that information when it is
official (in some weeks).

Now everything can still be changed.

That is with every product so why not with developing programs.

I hope this gives you some idea.

Hello, I just upgraded a vb2003 app to vb2005. The vb2003 app had/has a statusbar object - which contains panels and I can see the properties of the statusbar in the properties window in vb2005. But in the tools list of vb2005 I do not see a statusbar selection. Instead I see a statusStrip, and even though the Items collection has a property to set the statusStrip labels to sunken, etched,... I can see these appearances when I...

I have a Windows form with several Frame controls containing Textboxes, Comboboxes, Buttons, etc. The Enabled property on the Frames are set to False and the user can't edit any of the Textboxes until they click a button. When I try this in VB2005 and set the Enabled property to False, everything in the Frame turns gray and is hard to read (relatively speaking). Is there any way to duplicate the functionality of the VB6 Frames?

I am trying, without much luck, to find help in implementing an SMTP server/relay program from VB2005. My company produces software to go on customer's PCs. I am trying to implement email fault reporting back to our support centre, but cannot assume that the customer has an email account. I have found several examples showing how to send SMTP, but it always assumes you are sending to a known SMTP server. It's that actual SMTP...

I am presently a user of classic vb6 and hang out on those newsgroups. Some of you may be aware that there is a very anti MS and vb2005 feeling there. I have tried to get them to tell me which features of vb2005 are actually worse then vb6 in practice, and forget the philosophy of backward compatibility for a moment. I would now like to hear "the other side". Could *anyone who previously used vb6* (only those pleased; I feel the others...

I wanted to add a toggle button to a VB2005 form to be used for a simple Windows Application (i.e. compiled to a "*.exe"), so I added the ActiveX Microsoft Forms Object toggle button, however I can't get this button does work properly. The documentation I found in the FM20.CHM files says the button state can be determined from its "Value" property, but the property list shown in VB2005 does not have a "Value" property.

Ok so here is a brief summary of my problem. I need a pop up form that submits input text box information to a pocket excel workbook upon a command botton click. Text box inputs are checked for validity upon individual text box exit (don't have a problem with this part). All this could be done with Excel VBA easily, but pocket excel doesn't have VBA/Macro support. In as much, I have been trying to create a VB2005 application that I can load...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
