Textpad 4.2.1 and Form Properties

Hi,

I am current using vb 6(service pack 3, installed), Win98 and Textpad 4.2.1. I like opening up a vb form (*.frm) with Textpad to edit them, in particular I would like to modify properties of objects, etc. When I edit properties with textpad the changes are not saving properly. I save the form(in Texpad), it saves, but when I check the properties in the  VB form they are unchanged. I  have tried editing with vb open and closed, with no success.

 I read in the help file("Use with Other Applications") methods to modify VC++ and others, so as to allow textpad to modify program specific file, can this be done with vb6?

Please note that I contacted the creators of Textpad, they could not help.

You try closing the vbp in VB and opening it again
(after making changes in the form thru Text pad). Close the file in the text pad too. Hope it works...

ramask,
Thanks for helping,I already tried that one. If you use Textpad you know why I want to use it with vb, textpad is outstanding. If you haven't checked it out it is shareware available at www.textpad.com.

I tried that here. It is working fine.

If I am not wrong, you are updating in the correct place only as we tend to change somewhere and look for change somewhere

Just have a check!!!
