Hi experts!


I’m using collection in VB6.
  Set cAppSet = New Collection

  cAppSet.Add 1, sAPP_HARMONY

But my question is how can I later correct value of this collection ?
I try with
cAppSet(sAPP_HARMONY) = 0

give error, then I try first to delete it and add again, it work, but when I try to access collection I get error.
cAppSet.Remove sAPP_HARMONY
  cAppSet.Add 1, sAPP_HARMONY

and when make
If cAppSet(sAPP_HARMONY) Then

I get error
Object is not longer valid

So – how can I edit collection value ?

You need to reference as

cAppSet.Item(sAPP_HARMONY) = 0
0

I believe you might also be able to reference it:
cAppSet.Item!sAPP_HARMONY = 0
0

Try using the Scripting Dictionary object which is editable.
Add reference to "Microsoft Scripting Runtime"
Option Explicit

Dim cAppSet          As Scripting.Dictionary
Const sAPP_HARMONY   As String = "AppHarmony"

Private Sub Form_Load()
Set cAppSet = New Scripting.Dictionary

  cAppSet.Add sAPP_HARMONY, 1
  Debug.Print cAppSet(sAPP_HARMONY)
  cAppSet(sAPP_HARMONY) = 3
  Debug.Print cAppSet(sAPP_HARMONY)
  
End Sub
