link from table in vb6 form(?)

Posted 03 March 2013 - 08:37 AM

hey!

I'm doing this project where in one form i have something like an inbox.
I've represented the inbox as an adodc table.
and like in your email, when you click a message, it opens up in a new window or what ever.

I'd like to know if it's possible, that when i click a particular record in the table on my form, i can get a new form to open up, with the corresponding message.

I hope my question was clear...Thanks!

The only thing you can put on a form are controls. So what control-type are you using?

And, yes, you would probably use a Click event to show the other form.

If you want more help you will need to post some relevant code (and use more precise terms!).

Sure, I could, if I didn't think you were being lazy. Part of the reason I think this is because your statement of what you want to do is more vague than it would be if you actually had tried to write any code that solves the problem for yourself. In particular, I've never heard of an "adodc table", and I've been around VB going on 20 years now.

I really don't know what to say about me apparently being "lazy"..but I have to do a project by month end, and i'd just appreciate some help. If it seems like you're encouraging something wrong, it's alright I'll try and find a different way to solve my problem..I was just hoping for help because I was reading through the topics here, and you and some others really know their stuff!

I'm sorry if it isn't called an adodc table..I wasn't kidding when i said i'm a beginner at this.
I meant the table i get after i drag this adodc control on my form, right click, properties and link it to a table in my database. I'm sorry if i'm still being vague.

anyway, thanks for all the help.

Lazy means that you haven't shown any attempt to do it yourself, and are asking someone else to do it for you. My point about "adodc table" is that since I've never heard of one, I really don't know what you are trying to do. But ok, maybe you're just not explaining yourself very well. What have you written so far?
