    Creating animated GIFs...?

    Yes as a matter of fact I did. I made it specifically for recording an application process, and when the application terminated, so did the recording. However I removed that specific functionality. So you will need to provide some logic that tells it how long to record. Just take a look at my...

    How to properly make a thread wait for Events

    Well thank you for making that clarification. I guess using "script" was not the right word. Like you said the correct terminology would help. I'm actually running the code in an interpreter which is executing the source code directly (inside its own virtual machine). So I am running VB using...

    Listening to Events with Script

    Hey everyone, I am curious to know whether or not it is possible to use a script to listen to listen for an event. To be more specific I am trying to monitor Excel for certain events to take place, and when they do I need to write data to a port over a remote server. My first thought is to run...

    Creating animated GIFs...?

    Hello, thanks for the reply and the link. I was able to assemble some code to get the screenshots I need. However I have seen mixed results over the web on whether or not .NET can actually create animated GIFS. This forum post for example says that the GDI+ Gif encoder doesn't support the...

    Creating animated GIFs...?

    Hey Everyone, I am looking to create some functionality that will create GIF animations of whatever is happening on my desktop. The animation doesn't need to be long, maybe 6 seconds at the most. I have done some research on the subject and have various code snippets here and there but nothing...

However, is there any risk that TeamViewer can be used maliciously on the other end to take control of my...

    How can you tell if a DLL file has been registered?

    How can you tell if a DLL file has been registered? I am looking at registering a DLL for use in Excel. It is a third party DLL created for a CAD application. As it is, Excel cannot reference the DLL so my guess is that means it isn't registered. Also, can any .NET Class library (DLL) be...

    Using .NET remoting in an Excel Workbook?

    Okay, so as I understand it, installing a COM library is the same as registering your DLL file? Also, in my .DLL file, if I reference other namespaces in my code for my desired functions, will Excel be able to query those namespaces? I haven't been able to access certain functions inside a DLL...

    What to do when an API dosen't offer a solution?

    Well, it is for some functionality that is not supported in a CAD program. I already contacted the company to see if it was supported but it isn't.

    What to do when an API dosen't offer a solution?

    I am wondering on what the alternatives are when a particular API does not offer the solutions you need?
