View Full Version : Is it possible to access the VB code that manages the look of the form?

10 October 2003, 05:46 PM
In Visual Basic 6, I can see all the code written for each object and event but is there a way to see the code that handles how the form itself is laid out and how the form looks in general? I mean, sure that can all be configured in the properties menu but is there any method of viewing the full code output of those properties?

Beyond the properties of the form no. But for the most part the properties are there. And if you want a custom form design you can always make the form borderless and add the controls yourself and program it to act like a form as a whole.

hmmmm... sounds a bit more advanced than what I can do @ the moment. I'm only halfway through my first Visual Basic course so I don't know much except making basic calculators. But I'll look into that, thanks.

Its not that hard. For example, a form bar like windows typical one on the top could be a label. When the mouse is over it and down you could have it move the form around by controling the forms x and y locations. Or a minimize button could be a image or something that could set the form state property to minimize. Its not as hard as it sounds.
