Jürg,
The VLAX.CLS by Frank Oquendo used different Function names, if I recall ..


The great Tony Tanzillo ....

You could be right... I remember me to an unfriendly battle of words in the A'desk ng between Frank and Tony...

The great Tony Tanzillo penned three VBA sub functions: GetLispVar, SetLispVar, and EvalLispExpression.(...)
AFAIK, Frank Oquendo was the author and not his adversary... ^-^
and another point, under some circumstances, this functions doesn't work.

Was that happen back on between 1998 - 2000?.... anyway on that time I had access to the ADN and I got those functions from them, I even remember that FO mentioned something about it.....  :-)

This was also ported to C# so .NET can access global lisp variables via COM. I think it was called vlax.net

Bob,

Thankyou soooo much for helping out with this project.  Remember that this is for "educational purposes" so however you want to illustrate the properties and methods of the listview will be fine.  Thanks again!

Jurg,

The functions I posted were written by non other than Tony T.  Franks' VLAX didn't work well in some situations whereas I've had no trouble with the Tony's at all.

To All,

There is a great class posted over on the AutoDESK VBA NG that uses some pretty nifty Win API stuff.  I now have a fully functional re-sizeable dialog - just like ODCL - AND transparency capabilities!  Once I've got a little project finished I'll post . . ..

It sounds to me like this will do most of what objectdcl can do, correct? I purchased objectdcl but never got around to using it. I know nothing of
vba. I would love to see how these vba controls are put together.

This dog needs to be properly trained...am willing to learn.

To be honest, I understand nothing of your conversation guys.

I'm confused to say, but We are in ODCL forum !

I manage ODCL quite well with the time but I copy nothing of your conversation and feel like a stranger.

What I'd like would be a topic with tutorials so that I could follow or another sub-forum where we talk about ODCL alternative !?

Sorry  8-)

Gary and everyone else who is and/or might be interested.  CmdrDuh was running a VBA class that pretty much died out due to lack of interest.  I discussed starting it back up, using this project as the basis and he thought it sounded like a good idea.  Downside is that he's making me help :( but with everything this project is doing, everyone should learn enough about VBA to be able to use forms this way and even to bang out some VBA only routines.

If you are interested in playing along, PM CmdrDuh or me to sign up.

Unless of course, James has a problem with the project being used for the class.

It is look that ODCL is D E A D... just have a look again into www.objectdcl.com and you will see, that one more time it has an access error.

What these guys are doing is the best move....

Well I guess a quick head count is in order.  Also, based on the number of responses, do you guys want to do a self-paced class or non self-paced?  Also, I would like to know everyones comfort level with VBA so I know where we need to start.

I like self-paced.  I have very little knowledge of VBA, but I use ActiveX with AutoLisp a lot, which is a little bit like VBA.

For those who are interested in the class, here are a couple of things to read to get a bit of a jump on things.

I don't have a problem at all!  In fact I'm all for a class, self-paced or not doesn't matter to me.  I've been all over this VBA stuff - hacking away: I've got re-sizable forms, transparency, class modules, and I have no idea what I'm doing (well, not enough!)

Great job guys!

I know that ODCL is dead....
but beleive me, nothing is clear.

Maybe those like me who ever produced only lisp would appreciate a tutorial for a simple modal form or else. Anything.

You give me links and I thank you but the VBA environnement doesn't frighten me. What I'd like is to write a beginning of a code.

I'm sorry, I'm not native english and I may seem to be unpolte but that puts me in a bad mood.
It is more and more mysterious around here.
