Forms and controls losing their dimension data
Posted on 2000-04-05
Whenever I view a form I am getting multiple dimensional errors. The form is resized to 3600 x 4800 at 0,0. All objects on the form loose their location and size data, reverting to their default values. Furthermore the location and dimension data shown in the standard menu bar have 0,0 and ----,---- shown. By moving the form around I can see that the location numbers are limited to 0 to 90, beyond these values I get ----.
Form resized - when...
The first time I select to view the form from the project window is when the .log file is created listing the errors and the form is displayed top left on the screen, with all the controls displayed top left in the form. After the first time the objects all hold their new values - obviously todate I have not saved the form in this condition!
Moving the form ...
I have been using the mouse to drag the form around on the screen to see the 0 to 90 effect
I can create a new form, which behaves correctly. Saving the form and then viewing the form causes the same errors.
I have already completely removed and reinstalled Visual Studio 6 and returned to Service Patch 3, to no avail.
I have VB6 SP3 installed on NT 4 SP5
