 Accessing the Windows Registry with the API  By skillreactor

Rate It  | Review
Accessing the Windows Registry with the API Access the Windows Registry using the Windows API functions, that will be integrated by writing a seperate module ready for inclusion in your application The Registry originally appeared in Windows 3.x, as a store of OLE types. However, all application and Windows' settings were kept in private initialisation files, spread all over the hard disk. When Windows 95 was introduced, the people at Microsoft had had a good think about this, and decided to put all these settings in one central file, so if the computer crashed, you would lose all of your settings, not just one application's worth. Well, this wasn't quite what they thought! They really wanted to have all applications using the Registry to store settings instead of INI files, for reasons of support and adapting to multi-user environments. Because of this, we recommend that you back up the Registry BEFORE you start playing, rather than after. The files that you need are system.dat and user.dat which are both in the Windows directory. That way, if everything goes wrong, you can replace the damaged ones. This idea of one central database to store settings has been implemented in all the newest versions of Windows (i.e. Windows 98, Windows NT4, and Windows NT5/2000), and is definitely here to stay.

 Sorting Viewer  By imt

Rate It  | Review
Sorting Viewer Perhaps you have already done a rather exhaustive search for these routines but are still perplexed as to what a shell is, or why a certain sort is labeled quick. Or maybe you wonder what a bubble looks like up close and personal. Further, you may want to know which method is best suited to your application. This visual representation of what is going on behind the scenes should get you started on that path. To resurrect or not to resurrect - that is the question. The fact is that in the post oopcalyptic era of data and view objects we need only command "go sort yourself" and viola - the miracle manifests. Worse these objects know when to sort as you enter a new person, place, thing, or idea - further obviating the need to program. Little beknownst to the modern day assembler of packaged components is that somewhere buried deep in the recesses of these objects are the well chosen instructions to order and index data. Indeed these routines have been selected from a number of possible sorting methods to do the job in the most efficient and speedy way possible. They have all been developed and thoroughly tested in those wonderful days BW (before windows). Why then beat a perfectly dead horse, you say? Well aside from the joy of programming, perhaps you will find an occasion when the objects won't serve your purpose and you must scramble to consult the search oracle for these ancient methods. Chances are you will find them written in a cryptic linear C derivative like JAVA or perhaps FORTRAN or PASCAL, and wonder to yourself if those same sort routines will actually work in BASIC. Perhaps you have already done a rather exhaustive search for these routines but are still perplexed as to what a shell is, or why a certain sort is labeled quick. Or maybe you wonder what a bubble looks like up close and personal. Further, you may want to know which method is best suited to your application. This visual representation of what is going on behind the scenes should get you started on that path. In the meantime, there may be more to learn than just general sorting theory.

 Common Dialogs  By garybeene

Rate It  | Review
Common Dialogs In my beginner's section I state that a programmer's job is to get to the customer results as quickly and efficiently as possible. Common Dialogs are a great way to abide by this strategy. Common Dialogs The whole point of a visual language like VB is that it makes certain parts of programming (usually the user interface) much easier on the programmer. The idea is to build in features which programmers use over and over again. In the case of common dialogs I'm happy to say that Microsoft has really done us a good turn. I've written my own dialog windows (windows which provide information our request inputs from users) and I've used the built-in common dialog windows that VB provides. It's a no-brainer -- use the common dialog unless there's no other way!

 Objects  By garybeene

Rate It  | Review
Objects Since VB4, Microsoft has been promoting the "object-oriented" aspects of Visual Basic. It seems like everything you read is object-this and object-that! So what is the real story about objects? Who needs them, and why? How do you use them and when are they overkill? Can you use them without having to be an expert in all aspects of objects? Since VB4, Microsoft has been promoting the "object-oriented" aspects of Visual Basic. It seems like everything you read is object-this and object-that! So what is the real story about objects? Who needs them, and why? How do you use them and when are they overkill? Can you use them without having to be an expert in all aspects of objects? If you're like me, a solo programmer whose contact with the VB world is limited to email and magazines, do the answers apply to you? I'm interested in writing the tutorial as much to find out the answers myself, as you are to get the answers! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Introduction to Objects Let's get down the bottom line quickly. Objects are a combination of code and data which you can treat as a single item. You have already worked with objects - the controls and forms in a VB project. So the purpose of this tutorial is not so much to explain what they are, but rather to go into the details of how they work and how you can use them in your own programs. There is a lot more to objects than just drawing a control on your form and that's what we want to cover here. We'll especially get into how you create and handle objects in code, which is much different than simply drawing controls onto a form! In case you have any question about the value of objects, let me state without reservation, that objects (in the form of controls) are the single biggest reason why VB has been so successful. In more recent versions of VB, Microsoft has expanded the object features of VB, making it even more powerful than ever.
