|When editing a line source code sometimes you need to move to another line to copy or make changes there.
By default a horrible MessageBox appears telling you that the line you were editing has incorrect syntax.
You can prevent this by entering in:
Tools > Options
...and unselect "Auto Syntax Check"
The incomplete line still turns red but the annoying box is now gone!|

I've been coding in VB for years and
thought that by unchecking that box the
syntax error would not show up in red
(which I like) so I left it checked
even though I hate that messagebox. Now
I don't have that gall durn box! Bless

I'm sorry to say. . but all of you are
not that smart. .. .
rule : if you
have new software, ALWAYS check and
test the config/setup!
I found the
checkbox mentioned above in 1 minute. .
. right after the first time I got that
anoying warning !

Thanks for posting this. So simple,
and yet such an improvement. I too
have been coding for years, and just
thought the annoying box was the price
one paid for syntax highlighting.

I think share information is great but
people this is in manual (RTFM)
|6/22/2001 1:35:07 AM:Kevin |
and add to that if you dont eve want
the line to turn red
then select the tab
then there should be a
select "Error Syntax
then set the color to the color
of your regular code color
and John's thing and youll never see
anything that says an error
when doing this..... you may not know
an error happened....)
this peice of
code i posted is NOT and i repeat NOT
recommended for newbies who have lots
of errors.... because then they dont
know they have an error and there app

The tip was aimed at people who didn't
know it. If you did, well done -
here's a gold star. If, like myself,
you didn't this tip is simple, but oh
so useful. Thanks a lot!

I am obviously one of the only people
that noticed this, besides a few
very short paragraph has earned
25 excelents when not only did this
person barely do any work, but they
also wrote something that could be
found in the manual (RTFM). God! This
comment is probably more informative,
but do i get 25 excelent ratings. No.
|3/20/2002 7:55:31 PM:Kurt Joseph Serge|
Hmmm i know how to get good ratings!
Maybe i could tell people how to
compile there app, so that they will
not have to always open visual basic to
use it... This also has many
possibilities..ill go make it now.

this has gotten more for more votes
then the average app here and its in
the man pages if i tell you how to use
the man pages will i get a 4.5
no offense to the author or
readers but more feedback has been left
here then a app and the author didnt
have to work as long at this and the
average coders copyrights are broken he
cant copy right this
