Visual Basic (5/6) / Hexadecimal to Decimal conversion
« on: December 20, 2005, 05:49:03 am »
Another thing that the MSDN library wasn't too clear on when I searched; after scouring the Internet and rejecting the huge functions, I found this very easy method:

dec=val("&h" & hex)

I tried a similar approach, but managed to forget to add the "&h" first!


Visual Basic (5/6) / VB Browser Object: 2 queries.
« on: November 24, 2005, 07:08:21 am »
Two basic problems which I can't find a reliable way to solve;

Firstly, when I use 'WebBrowserObject.GoBack', which works fine on the default navigation toolbar, but when I try it on a separate command button and presss it with no page to go back to, the application crashes. Any ideas here? It must be simple, just can't find it in help/sample files!

Secondly, does anybody know how to find whether a web page is secure without using coolbars/status bars? There's an event for the browser object called SetSecureLockIcon, but can't work out the format it's needed in!

Any help would be appreciated here!



General Chat / Making a game and don't have a website? A solution!

If you're making a game and want a dedicated site to display information and progress, here's a proposition for you!

There are no catches; it's free- and the only adverts are internal banner adverts or adverts to relevant sites. We get more traffic, you get your own space.

Obviously intriguegames would have the final say over any content, but we would also edit any content for you (correcting mistakes etc). You don't need a transfer program; just send intriguegames your content (in a Word document or other agreed file format) and we'll add it as soon as it's been checked and formatted!

Please feel free to take a look at the site before you email me- it's in the process of an update but most content is there now!

email (subject as 'Website', please).

Does anybody know of coding to prevent users of an application created in VB taking screenshots? I need it to protect my graphical work from other artists.

Artwork / Volunteer To Produce Game Artwork
« on: September 13, 2005, 08:17:28 am »

I am (Possibly stupidly) volunteering for any artwork you may want; I can't do fancy 3D stuff but I can do Icons and comic style graphics well, if slowly.
