When using the Internet Transfer Control from a MouseOver event of a Label Control. I get an runtime error 35764 "still executing last request". I am trying to use the MouseOver event to update a stock pricing.

There is a bug in the StillExecuting property of the inet control.  It returns 1 instead of -1 for True.  Read more about it in this article:

Hi
I don't know MouseOver event in standard label control. I know MouseMove Event instead. It occure every time you move mouse over control and, of course, can fire error. Check Inet state before executing your request. For example:
Private Sub Label1_MouseMove(...)
  If Not Inet1.StillExecuting Then
     'your request
  Else
     'MsgBox "Still Executing"
  End If
End Sub

Private Sub Label14_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
symbols = Text5.Text
stock = Inet1.OpenURL("http://www.stockpoint.com/quote.asp?Exchange=US&Symbol=" & symbol & "&Company=&x=0&y=0")
MsgBox stock
End Sub

I am still not able to get past the runtime error. The above works if I use a message box after setting the symbols variable? What's up with that?

Thanks,

i'm not certain but it seems to me that a mouse move event will trigger several times as you pass over the label so perhaps its calling the openurl function more than once.
