I want to use VB object printer to print some informations exactly at a position (x, y) on paper.
I understand each printer has its own idea of what the printable area of the paper is.
Therefore i use Windows API to check left and top margin before sending data to printer.
I retrieve theses informations like this :
How do I get the tooltips for class the way VB.NET classes have? I've finished coding my methods to return information but I need a way to show what information is being returned the way the base classes do.
That is not a place were users will expect to find an extra button. (At least not me). So my advice is, don't do it even if you can.

Has anyone had any problems with the licensing.
All I am trying to do is license a server control, it should be easy but the control can't find the license everytime. Even the most basic LicFileLicenseProvider does not work.
The steps I take
1) Decorate the class [LicenseProvider(typeof...
2) add the LicenseMangager.Validate in the constructor
3) add the MyNamespace.MyClass.lic file
4) Compile it
5) Run it
In the project folder of the application that uses your control, you should have a licenses.licx file. This file must be included in the project and it must contain a line identifying your control. If this is not the case, this is the reason of your problem.
I have the licenses.licx file in the folder, forgot to mention that.
There is something wierd happening that I am missing, and cant see what it is. The controls are for web based applications and after tracing it through it seems to be in the getLicense method which is called from Validate. have tried the basic LicFileLicenseProvider in both C# and VBNet without success. I am using Runtime 1.1
Its not in the GAC. It is also a web control Library Assembly specifically for Internet apps. Inside of the library I have a standard web control and a second class inherited from the base control class which has no interface. Neither of the controls can be licensed.
I wrote a real basic test server control added licensing LicFileLicenseProvider, Validate, Dispose, [namespace].[class].lic, Compiled it. Created Host Web app, added the control and a license file in the bin same as the lic file in the component, added licenses.licx. Compiled and run,
Got the error "A license could not be found...", take out the validate method call control works fine in design and runtime.
Tried it in C# and VBNet both the same.
In your first message, you asked if anyone had any problems with the licensing. I have the following problem:
- I create a basic Windows Forms Control with a basic licensing (LicFileLicenseProvider). Let us call it Dummy.dll.
- If I use it in a windows application (DummyTest.exe), the licensing is working correctly
- If I wrap dummy in a another unlicensed control (DummyWrap.dll) and if I use DummyWrap in a windows application (DummyWrapTest.exe), the licensing does not work anymore (Notice that DummyWrap has a licenses.licx file since it uses Dummy.)
- Then if I add a licenses.licx file to DummyWrapTest itself, the licensing is working again. (I thought initially that the licenses.licx file was not necessary because DummyWrapTest is only using DummyWrap. It does not see Dummy.
- However there are cases where I cannot add the licenses.licx file to the application, for instance if this application is ASP.NET (I have not its source code!). I don't know what to do here to avoid the "license not found" message.
In your case I can see whay the licenses.licx is required. Even although you have wrapped the original control in a dummyshell it is probable that the dummyshell actualy creates an instance of the control anyway, which causes the licensing to kick in. The licensing is in the constructor.
The theory I have in my case is something to do with the path of the lic file being in a web. The License provider seems not to deal with this situation. Originally I wrote new license providers assuming that the implementation would be a walk in the park. Just to get it right I decided to do a quick test using the basic license provider and it didn't work!!. I am probable wasting time trying to get the basic license provider working and should just launch straight into implementing my custom provider.
I'm just a web designer/scripter, not a coder, and don't like dead links. This requires VB: I want to put a hyperlink on my desktop html page and have it link to an offline page when offline, and to an online page when online...that way the link will always call an available page.
can ne1 pls tell me the exact code I can paste into my page?
Your help most appreciated....
Thanks, but... what I have it's a GUID ( and I cannot import the TLB in order to have Interface...), it's possible to get the Interface from the GUID ?, or is there a TypeOf that works only with the GUID ?

Oh, I see... Well, VB6 do not have any feature like that. The way to go would be calling the QueryInterface method on the IUnknown (all COM interfaces have this method). Doing this in VB6 is cumbersome and involves some coding I would not show to children. The way to go would be coding this in a small C++ component.
How to determine a UserID (in Windows) is a member of a certain UserGroup (like SalesManagers) in VB.Net?
I tried DirectoryEntry and DirectorySearcher in the System.DirectoryServices name spaces, but I cannot get it to work. I also tried WindowsIdentity and WindowsPrincipal.IsInRole but with no correct result. I cannot find any sample codes.
