    Not really, I'd say. Download Expressions Web (90 day trial) or any one of the other packages that claim to write html for you. Some people use Notepad though, and claim it's better.

    You can write a web page, with anything. Not a web server, or a network.
    Here is html code.

    Code:
    <head>
    </head>
    <body>
    HELLO WORLD!
    </body>
    </html>

    If you want to develop in VB then you can start with 'DHTML Application' that comes with VB.

    If you want to develop it in Javascript and VBScript then you can use notepad and for server side application ASP. Frontpage is another tool available for your which will generate HTML code automatically. Dreamviewer is there.


    Now choice is your !!

    Re: Creating Website using VB 6.0

    Why not try out Microsoft Visual Web Developer?
    The Express Edition can be downloaded for free. It seems a good choice.

    Why should I try to write HTML code with VB?

    Re: Creating Website using VB 6.0

    Maybe an Active Server Page (ASP) is a suitable solution.
    Please look it up at MSDN. There should be lot of information about that.

    Re: Creating Website using VB 6.0

    Please use code tags around your code for better readability.

    Your OnComm() handler is no good.
    Code:
    Private Sub MSComm1_OnComm()
    
     If MSComm1.CommEvent = comEvReceive Then
       data = MSComm1.input
       If data = dataID Then
         Text1.Text = dataID
       Else
         Text1.Text = ""
       End If
      End If
    End Sub
    Nothing happens because after receiving one character you compare it to the full ID and because this will never turn out true Text1.Text will always be empty.
    You have to understand that the OnComm() event is called for every character received (when RThreshold is 1).
    You have to determine when the apropriate number of characters is received.
    Try this:
    Code:
    Dim Rec as String
    dim dataID as String 'not as Long
    ...
    ' in Form_Load() for instance
    dataID = "000386090601"
    ...
    Private Sub MSComm1_OnComm()
    
     If MSComm1.CommEvent = comEvReceive Then
        Rec = Rec + MSComm1.Input
        Text1.Text=Rec
        if Len(Rec) = Len(dataID) Then
          If Rec = data ID Then beep
        End If
      End If
    End Sub
    and see what happens.
    I dont know what your reader sends out to indicate the end of the number and how all the other protocol is happening.
    Usually you send a command to the reader before it will do anything at all. You cannot simply connect and wait if anything is going to happen.
    If it does, by holding a tag to the reader, then you will see whatever comes from the reader, if you use the above code.

    Re: Creating Website using VB 6.0

    hi all..

    thanks for the code.. i've already try the code and it's work.. but from that code i've overcome some problems.

    1) i've modified the code as below

    Dim Rec As String
    'Dim Rec1 As String
    Dim dataID As String 'not as Long

    Private Sub Command1_Click()
    'MSComm1.PortOpen = False
    Text1.Text = ""
    Text2.Text = ""
    Text3.Text = ""
    'Rec = 0

    End Sub

    Private Sub Form_Load()

    If MSComm1.PortOpen = False Then MSComm1.PortOpen = True
    End Sub

    Private Sub MSComm1_OnComm()

    'Rec = 0
    If MSComm1.CommEvent = comEvReceive Then
    Rec = Rec + MSComm1.Input
    Text1.Text = Rec
    'If Len(Rec) = Len(dataID) Then
    'If Rec = dataID Then Beep
    If Rec = "0003890601" Then
    Text2.Text = "RapidKL"
    Text3.Text = "T231"

    Else
    If Rec = "0004101893" Then
    Text2.Text = "RapidKL"
    Text3.Text = "T201"

    Else
    If Rec = "0004110179" Then
    Text2.Text = "Metrobus"
    Text3.Text = "91"

    End If
    End If
    End If
    End If

    End Sub

    i've added a button to clear the data(text1, text2 and text3). the problem is the programme cannot received next data after press the button..


    2) using the some code as above, how to store the data(text1, text2 and text3) into the database after the reader received the ID. the database i'm using is microsoft Access

    3) how to store the current time into database?

    4) how to link a same database from 1 form to another form?

    hope someone will give some advise..

    thanks..

    Can't even read your code. Use code tags. type ]code[ code goes here ]/code[ but reverse the brackets
    Code:
    like so
