UI improvements/changes to VB6 codebase

May 7, 2010 at 6:09 AM

I'm running Helium Frog on netbooks (1024x600 screen res) with primary school pupils.

I've managed to get the code to complile and build an .exe but not yet make a distributable version which includes required dlls and ocxs.

My main aim was to honour the FORMCAPTURELEFT and FORMCAPTURETOP settings so that the windo posistions can be pre-set to reasonable values to run on netbooks (thereby saving time every time the program is restarted).

I've managed that one and at the same time I've altered the meaning of both form postitions to refer to topleft of the forms (rather than reffering to the middle of the form) as this is much easier to adjust when you haven't got much desktop area to play with :)
