    ADO Controls Get Reset to Pictureboxes by VB IDE (vb 6)

    ADO Controls Get Reset to Pictureboxes by VB IDE

    Windows 2K SP2
    VB 6 SP5

    I have been testing the ado datgrid and datalist controls in VB6 SP5; i heve observed that the VB IDE will, without warning, turn off my project references to ado data components and then check the dao equivalents (example, the data bound grid control is "swapped" for the datagrid control); in addition, all my ado controls (data control, datagrid, datalist) are turned into picturebox controls; Wierd!

    Anybody know what is going on here? Is there a workaround?

    Thank you!

    That is extremely weird. I've never had that experience running the same build of VB6 in the same Windows environment. Have you tried reinstalling VB? Do you have anything else installed on your machine that might be changing the environment?

    Thanks for the help- at least i know the problem i have might be an isolated case; this behavior only has happened a couple of times so far; I am wondering if the behavior occurs when i start an .exe project, set up some ado controls, save project, but don't close project- as i do other things the behavior then occurs; i am thinking that if i close the project after i set up my ado controls and then re-open it, this will force the VB IDE to "flush" itself; I strongly suspect the VB IDE is not remembering its state properly;
