VB6 Dialog DLL
With this DLL you can use real Widows form in your Game Maker game/application, even though they are designed by me (May look bad to you) but you can request one from me, giving a layout for me. It was made in Visual Basic 6 with my DLL tutorial and is pretty basic. The one major downside is that it will not work on Vista, might be an upside to non-Vista users Maybe...
It currently has:
- Password Box (Hides real password)
- Drive List (A drop-down or available drives)
- Get Directory
- Get File (Specified Directory)
- Get String (For random reasons...)
- Locate File (Three controls that allow you to look around your computer for a file)
- Show YouTube Video (A few bugs with caption)
DOWNLOAD: Here (V3)
The functions are simple and not hard to understand, the coding is fairly simple too.
InitDialog(); //Init the DLL for use RetVal = GetPassword(strCaption, strDescr); //for people who don't like teh showing of get_string() RetVal = DriveList(strCaption, strDescr); //choose a drive O.o RetVal = GetDirectory(strCaption, strDescr); //find a directory... RetVal = GetFile(strCaption, strDescr, strDirectory); //load a file in specified directory RetVal = GetString(strCaption, strDescr); //Like get_string() RetVal = LocateFile(strCaption, strDescr); //Like get_open_filename() ShowYTVideo(strCaption, strVideoID) //.com only
Please note, first DLL, and they all freeze the game window upon use, I may be able to change that but I will wait until someone asks. I also made this today, it wasn't very hard.
If you would like to request a dialog, please post it or PM me what you want. There should be no issues but:
This does NOT work on some Vista computers. (Correct me if I'm wrong)
