To use the Splitter control in your application, copy and paste both the Splitter.ctl file and the Splitter.ctx file to your application directory. Then right-click in your Project window and select Add>User Control. In the dialog box that pops up choose the 'Existing' tab and select the Splitter.ctl file. You will see the Splitter control appear in your toolbox. (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
Thanks, Randy, for the excellent **ClipCursor Property** doctoral research story! This work is not Intermediate; it is 1st class VB engineering...! ;-) (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
A question: What's the most efficient way to save the actual Form Layout using SaveSettings and then to re-establish it after the next Program start? (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
Hi Piper, (thanks for the complement) I'd just save a string representation of the current splitter position with SaveSetting() on program termination in the Form_Unload event; Then I'd restore it using either Val(savedNum$) or CInt(savedNum$) functions in the Form_Activate() event. Declare a static boolean: Static oneShot As Boolean, in the Form_Activate() event then evaluate some code like: If oneShot is False Then lastString=GetSetting() oneShot = True End If I do stuff like this all the time to save and restore the last directories I navigated to to open files in my programs. I hate having to re-navigate to the folder that contains my program's data files. Hope this helps, Randy (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
