    Greetings!

    This is a wonderful and beautiful program! I really would love to see updated databases for this program.

    Out of curiousity, are there any other hidden resources like this that I may have overlooked.

    I have put it on the whish-list. Still in Beta mode, so anything is
    possible. I only have about a million things to wrap up first, then
    I'll grab hold of it again.

    Borje,
    I just downloaded your great tool POFFS V2.0.
    A few (small) remarks however.
    Your dialog box is basically built up of 2 parts: an upper part with
    all the edits and buttons and stuff for doing the actual searching,
    and a lower part: The text box where all of the text is displayed.
    Wouldn't it be handy if we were able to resize the lower text box and therefore
    also the upper part of the dialog. A kind of a splitter bar...
    Probably not so easy to program though..

    Kind regards
    Eddy

    Borje,
    You remember well: I did have that kind of design problem, but since I'm using GetTextExtentPoint32, in order to get cx- and cy-values in advance, my dialogs look good on different systems. So it is almost sure there is no driver problem.

    Borje,

    You're probably real tired of all the praise, but I'd like to add
    my thanks. This thing is great.

    Edwin, a more detailed reports would be welcome, like under what
    system, at what point it crashes, what settings you are using, etc.
    Also, please make sure you have the latest uploaded file. The first
    betas sure had some "issues"..

    In the meantime - if not the latest version works, use the old one.
    I may not have time to do much about it in the next couple of weeks,
    but with more detailed reports, at least I will have a better chance
    of finding out why it doesn't work for some of you.. :-/

    If nothing else, a good learning experience. To do anything outside
    using standard controls in Windows is risky, since it seems there is
    no consistency in the way Windows works with different settings, drivers
    and hardware, etc. I have four different Win95/98/ME machines to
    test with here, and even if I get things to work fine in all of them,
    that still obviously isn't enough.

    Sigh, I feel I'm beginning to lose my patience with Windows. Time for
    some solitaire to calm down my nerves. Hm, there's an idea. Maybe
    should write myself a card game instead, just for the fun of it..

    Resizing the window GPF's

    Egbert, I seem to recall you once had a problem with your laptop,
    designing a listbox that became to narrow on desktop computers.
    Could it be a driver problem? What exactly are your screen settings,
    font size and number of colors? Multiple screens?

    I have tested in Win95/98 and ME myself, no problems. Some people
    have reported problems in NT when scrolling with syntax highlight
    on. Can't reproduce that one here, so impossible for me to say what
    might be causing that crash. Can't find anything wrong with my code
    either, so must be NT that treats something differently.

    Like I said. Microsoft sure has made Windows development interesting,
    in a negative way..

    If nothing else works, Egbert, use the old version of Poffs. The new
    databases works with that one too. BTW, what happens if you test in
    "safe mode"?

    Borje,
    Unfort. I got a GPF, immediately on start up. The system hung, had to use the off/on switch to get my laptop running again.
    If I remember correctly, the GPF was caused by KERNEL.386. My system is W95.

    Marvelous!, simply marvelous!
    I don't know which impresses me more, your programming capabilities
    or your willingness to share the results.

    Many Thanks,

    Borje,

    I am from NY (USA) and actually all applications I write use the YYYYMMDDHHMMSS format due to the sort ability. I just makes more sense.

    Yes, of course. Actually quite advanced controls, with possibility
    to set text position, bitmap/icon position, url on/off (url links
    in Info dialog uses same label as the one under the checkbox list)

    Only need to clean out some mess first. Same thing with the editor,
    but a bit more to clean up there. BTW, one thing I haven't mentioned
    yet - in the editor, if you double-click in the left margin while
    the caret is inside a sub or function, entire sub/function will be
    selected. Also, if not already clear - there are working keyboard
    shortcuts for everything in the editor. Ctrl+W toggles word wrap,
    Ctrl+H syntax highlight, F2 moves to next bookmarked reply, Shift+F2
    to previous, etc..

    Borje --
    I noticed two custom controls - ROUNDRECTBUTTON & PBRLABEL.
    Unlike there are some disadvantages (for example, aytomatic turn off), they looks very interesting.
    Will you share them ?

    Invaluable Borje! Thanks a lot.

    Downloading at a bit over 6 Kb/s via ISDN.
    My ADSL connection is supposed to be installed this first quarter...

    Gregory, the dotted line indicates focus, something that otherwise
    usually is missing in all flat style buttons. Tab around and you'll
    see how it works. Would prefer a more Focus-rect style, but that
    involves drawing earch dot "by hand", so I simply used MS's crappy
    implementation of dotted lines. One day I'll improve that part..

    Fred, I'm sure our US friends would be very confused if it used the
    "more correct" MMDD format..

    Hi Börje!
    As a member of a great nation, Sweden, I think you should use
    "swedish/military" dateformat YYYYMMDD HH:MM:SS as that is "sort-able"
    I dont think anybody in the world use the strange US/AM/PM format.
    My 2 öre to this discussion.
    By the way, Great,great job. What a load of goodies to learn from.

    Borje,

    I miss the strange PM/AM time format Na, its no biggy.

    I do like your modifications very much.

    The buttons sometimes have a dotted line around them, don't know
    if you intended on this.

    Lance, I forgot - you asked about updated postings: old postings,
    updated since last release, was indeed downloaded and added to the
    package. Just so you know - most should be there, only some links
    in the ones that never has been updated that may be wrong, if they
    were moved to the archives..

    I just d/l all the databases, speed with my cable modem was
    about 175.5 k/s, your servers speed seems to be above average.

    P.S.
    Thank you very much, the databases are very very useful.

    Regards; Errol
