VB Array - Arrays in Visual Basic 6

Postby MikeTn1 » Sun Jan 03, 2010 1:50 pm

I have not seen any tutorials in the AM forums on Arrays so I started looking on the web. Here is a nice one:

http://visualbasic.freetutes.com/learn-vb6/lesson6.html

I could have just copied the information, but these people deserve the credit. If there is anyone who wants an easier to understand tutorial, I will be glad to do one based on their tutorial and what I know.

Just a reminder. Arrays only work locally (only in the current frame). If you want to use something similar to arrays globally, I found building a delimited list works well.

I have a tutorial on using a list in one of the issues in Bite-By-Byte (AM Magazine). I believe I talked about building a journal.

Yes you did, but most of the issues of AM-Magazin are not available to download anymore :(

Perhaps chicken can upload it somewhere a second time so that I can save it on my server and make it downloadable for long time.

Just a offer.

I guess I beat you to it woorps! :)
The issue with the list example is still available. There is a thread in the AM magazine area that contains a link with a zip file to issues #7-current. I haven't been able to find the first 6 to add to the zip file.

AM magazin was a nice thing to look behind the scenes.
I miss it much!

Here is a quick project example, executable, and MS Document of functions associated with working with global lists. If you need a detailed tutorial, please let me know.

http://www.hickchickgames.com/downloads/GlobalArrays.zip

The "GetWord()" routine in the MS Word document is not the latest version. The latest version is in the project thats included in the zip file.
I'd fix the Word document but I'm too short on time right now!
