Visual Basic 6 Controls

3 posts in this topic

The Help File for AutoIt refers to "Standard Microsoft Controls", whatever that means.

Who knows which controls are "Standard"?

VB6 has Intrinsic controls, and ActiveX controls. I would guess these are standard, since they come with VB6.

I've recently written a very small VB6 app, with three Command Buttons (which are intrinsic controls).

However, when I spy on them with Auto Window Info, the class and control names are very bizarre (to me).

Additionally, I can't seem to set the Focus on any of the controls.

Also, the plain Label control, is not seen by Auto Window Info.

Here's what Window Info shows me

ress CTRL-ALT-F to pause the display.

Standard Microsoft Controls usually refers to controls found in most applications except Microsoft's. It doesn't make sense but that's the way things are.
