I'm looking for a way to tell an instance of Explorer that is already running to change directory and display a different folder (of my choice).
My guess is that there is probably a PostMessage()...

John (and Graham),
Thanks very much for your replies. I think I understand it now. I guess this is very closely related to the 'smart pointer' templates that are available for C++. I had this idea...

The compile won't have that:
error C2803: 'operator *' must have at least one formal parameter of class type
Also, operator -> must be a member function according to the spec.

I have a strange problem with overloading the -> and * operators. I'm trying to do this to make dereferencing a pointer to the class intrinsically safe. I think the problem is the same in both cases,...

Thanks for your help. I had hoped I could do it without introducing yet another function. (C++ seems to love having a plethora of 3-line functions...)
Anyway, that works and solves the problem, so...

An abstract base class constructor is declared as
The derived class constructor takes an integer as its parameter. This needs to be converted to, e.g., "Node 15" if...

Finally found a solution myself.
If you already have a connection to the remote machine with a particular user name and password, then the pipe will try to use the same user name and password....

I want to open a named pipe on a remote NT workstation from my own workstation. But the user that I am currently logged in as doesn't exist on the remote workstation. So I want to open the pipe with...

I have an anonymous pipe, created with CreatePipe(). I want to know how the process that is writing to it can discover in advance whether the write it is about to do will block or not. Or to put it...

I've only used NT, so I don't know. Sorry.

I don't know how to do it using the Windows API, but do you already know how to do it with th Disk Administrator?
(Start->Programs->Administrative Tools (Common)->Disk Administrator). This is for...

I'm looking for an algorithm (any language) to deal with the following problem:
I have an emulator for an obscure control system. Global variables are stored in a contiguous region of memory. When...

The other files can't be automatically opened, but it's easy to do what you want nevertheless.
Once the file dialog returns with the file name of the *.bmp file, just create two more strings,...

Have you checked that this entry point exists in the actual dll you are using? You can look by right-clicking on the dll (make sure it really is the one VB is loading and not another one with the...

I had thought that only worked for C++ code, but you are quite right. Now all I need is some way of getting it to display only the functions in the window I have foremost...

That's one possibility, but only useful when the function name is already displayed somewhere on the screen. I wanted a pop-up menu listing them all, if possible.

Visual Studio editor:
Is there any way (or add-in) that will give me a pop-up menu of function names in a source file (like in Metrowerks Codewarrior), so that I can jump directly to where that...

ISO9660 is a file system format, not a file format. Your best bet is to search for information on the UNIX program called mkisofs, which is used to create an ISO9660 image file in preparation to...

You will be familiar with the 'Next' and 'Previous' buttons in the MSDN help browser that enable you to move through pages in the manuals sequentially. (As distinct from the forward and back...

I'm using the toolbar wizard in VB6 to modify a bog-standard toolbar in my application.
When I add an icon with a transparent background, the background stays transparent until the first time I...

I'm not sure what you mean 'no built-in linking mechanism'. A collection has mechanisms for adding new objects and for iterating through the list. Isn't this what a linked list is supposed to do?
July 21st, 2000, 06:27 AM
The easiest thing is to use a 'collection'. Although the documentation doesn't say so, it appears that 'collections' are essentially linked lists by a different name.

How can I hide the caret in a rich text box? The box is used to present scrolling information to the user, and the user should not expect to be able to type anything into it.
I tried the Win API...
