VB6 (And older) Tutorial Suggestions

Posted 11 August 2007 - 09:56 AM

If you would like to see something in Classic Visual Basic post your request here and someone will write a tutorial on it. Remember, most of us have full-time jobs and families so you're not going to see your tutorial in a matter of hows, most of the time it will take a while, but whoever has decided to cover it will let you know here that they are working on it.

I'll try writing some tuts for beginners. I did promise to do so before but I did not a have a net connection nor my comp. I'll try my best. No promises though, I do take a lot of time to cope with what is taught in school (Man electronics is a tough stream!! :(. But I still like it :P).

Does anyone have suggestions as to how to compile everything within a .exe that is necessary to run the VB6 job? The idea being no client installation required, or something. Thanks for any ideas.

For starters, this thread is only for tutorial suggestions, second, without installing the application there is no running it.

Re: VB6 (And older) Tutorial Suggestions

Posted 20 September 2007 - 10:26 AM

I am very new to Visual Basic Programming...still doing a lot of Tutorials and reading books to learn what I can. But the best way to learn for me is to find a project and figure it out from the ground up....of course it helps to have tips or tutorials to help newbies like me.

So here is my suggestion for a tutorial:

Here is my task:

1. I need to automatically create a Table of Contents,Table of Figures, and Table of Tables in my Word documents. This would be easy to do if the document already had all the Figures or Table references indexed. But if the document is clean with no indexing done yet...then this leads me to issue two...
2. How can I create a macro or visual basic code that will go through an entire document and find all captions, Table, or figure references?

Examples:

Example1: Refer to Section 3.2.4 Refer to text here.
Example2: Table 1 Table text here.
Example3: Figure 18 Figure text here.

These examples may be found scattered throughout the document.

I need to create VB code that will automatically find them, then highlight the caption found, create a new caption while removing the old.

Once the captions have been created, then the code needs to go through the word Document text and find references to the Caption Figures and Tables and create links pointing to the captions.

Finnally, the Table of Contents,Table of Figures, and Table of Tables can be automatically created.

I have some code already created, and am working on pieces of other code I think I need, but need to put it altogether and perhaps figure out in the tutorial the best way to go through this process in an orderly way as I am not exactly experienced and I don't really know what I am doing... :)

I hope this make sense, but I am certainly willing to detail further and post my code if needed. Since I am new I hope for a little direction here.

Thanks,

Russ

PsychoCoder,
Do you think a tut on Pascal Triangle and forming patterns of characters is a good tut? It is a question that a lot of beginners ask. I could write one for VB and VB.NET.

If you haven't already written one, this would probably be a good tutorial to have. Make sure there isnt already one before writing it though :)

I enjoy writing them :) They usually take me about an hour or so, including writing the code :)
