property bag

I have an ocx called OCX1.
When the acivex loads(executes) I like to get a value from property bag(Sessionid).
When OCX Terminates, I like to place a value -1.
-1 tells me that everything was okay when the user log out.
How can it be done using property bag or......

Thanks
Nesifa

i think you need to save this data to a file or registry.

I see applications that you can change some of the poperties of design time. Next time you login, changes has taken place.
Let say I have a label with caption label1.
I want to save some information on label caption, so next time he/she logs in I grab the left over value.
Thanks.

create a new mdi project using vb project wizard and check code on mdi_load mdi_unload

Private Sub MDIForm_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
  If Me.WindowState <> vbMinimized Then
    SaveSetting App.Title, "Settings", "MainLeft", Me.Left
    SaveSetting App.Title, "Settings", "MainTop", Me.Top
    SaveSetting App.Title, "Settings", "MainWidth", Me.Width
    SaveSetting App.Title, "Settings", "MainHeight", Me.Height
  End If
End Sub


Private Sub MDIForm_Load()
  Me.Left = GetSetting(App.Title, "Settings", "MainLeft", 1000)
  Me.Top = GetSetting(App.Title, "Settings", "MainTop", 1000)
  Me.Width = GetSetting(App.Title, "Settings", "MainWidth", 6500)
  Me.Height = GetSetting(App.Title, "Settings", "MainHeight", 6500)
End Sub

PropBag.WriteProperty("propertyname",value[,defaultvalue])
PropBag.ReadProperty("propertyname"[,defaultvalue])

Reads and write's from/to property bag. The deafaultvalue is optional, in the writeproperty it ensure no unnescecary memory is used. When the written property is the default property, nothing is written to memory. The default value of the readproperty should be set to the same value. These properties should also be the same you used designing your ocx. You can use the read- and write- property events to implement all this. I hope this will help you.

capkirkie - can you use this to preserve data between vb applications. start application read old data, set new data, stop application, start application and read new data?

No just for saving the properties a programmer changes in design time in your ocx. But I guess you knew that too.
