The problem had nothing to do with Unicode nor MSHFlexgrid.
It is the file header that was corrupt. After renaming the file with the same name (including the same accented characters) everything...
OK, found it.
Both HexEdit and IrfanView tell me the file header is corrupt.
MS File Explorer on the other hand seems to have no problems with the header when getting its properties.
Sorry, I forgot something important.
When I create myself a new file with a name containing accented characters "Aéêè.txt", processing is OK.
So there must be something special with the file...

I have a folder containing a file with following name:

I process this folder with a...

I replaced the SendMessage functions by SendKeys and it works ...
Don't ask me why.

Well, in short, I have written a VB6 program that I now want to communicate with IrfanView in order to send it a few keystrokes. But IrfanView does not seem to respond to this.
So I can only...

Hi dglienna. Nice to see you are still very active on this forum.
The processing I need is of a different kind. Nothing to do with batch conversion.
I have to identify keywords on the pictures...

I have to update 1000+ JPG images by modifying the IPTC info stored inside the pictures.
One of the tools I can use to update this info is IrfanView. After opening the image, hitting Ctrl-i brings...
I've been thinking about moving to either VB.NET or Delphi ... but just today I heard about Gambas, initially a VB6-like environment for Linux which now also is available for Windows.

Forgot to tell you that most of this runs in batch mode. No forms whatsoever. Maybe a log file that pops up if requested or needed.
The COPYFILES.EXE is a good example. It uses a COPYFILES.INI...

In my development environment I'm using support tools that help me keeping my backups consistent and help me in moving tested stuff into production. All these activities are parameterised in INI...

Everybody knows about File Type associations where the file type (.TYP) string can be used to identify the associated program needed to process the file. However, I would like to associate the...

Yes. That is exactly what I did. I renamed all my top-level entries so that they start with "mnuTop". Easy to test.

Is there a way to find out if you are dealing with a top-level menu item (one that is visible on the menu bar) or with a sub-level menu item (one that only shows when pulling the menu down)?

Well, I did a little test on 60936 files (on my C drive).
FSO spoiled 17.938 seconds (17 sec and 938 millisec) to find the top 50 biggest files.
WIN32 API (FindFirstFile, FindNextFile) did the...

Thanks for the input.
I'll give it a try this weekend and let you know.

I'm currently using the FileSystemObject to scan the contents of folders and sub-folders and to get the sizes and last modification dates & times of the files.
Unfortunately, FSO is a bit slow. ...

VB6 run-time should be present on your system.
Anyhow, there's a self-extracting kit on the Microsoft web site.

Sorry for not having replied so far. I've been "out" for a while.
Thank you for your suggestions.
I'll give them a try.

Is there a listbox property that will tell me how many visible rows (entries) a listbox has? With "visible" I mean those that you can see without scrolling the list.
I found a workaround by...

Yes, that's it.
I just noticed that the Picture.Width and Picture.Height values were 0 after using the PaintPicture method when I saw your reply.
Picture.Picture = Picture.Image did the trick....

I have a form with 4 picture boxes on it, all boxes are identical in size & characteristics. They are set up in a control array so I can identify them with an index (0 .. 3).
An extra picture box...

Sure, that is clearly the case and I have no problem with showprinter doing some handshaking with the printer or getting into the queue. I only would like him to close his window a.s.a.p. and have...

No, this does not help.
When debugging, the start of execution of the statement following the commondialog call corresponds with the moment the window manager finishes doing the repaint.
