    VSTO (2003)

    Should not VSTO have a separate Forum?
    VSTO includes aspects of both .nET and Office 2003.

    Re: VSTO (2003)

    Has there been any demand for it from the masses? This is the first I've heard of it. I wouldn't want it falling to the way side with such forums as PhotoDraw...
    Keep in mind it's harder to add than take out... and the powers that be haven't gotten around to nixing the aforementioned forum as of yet...
    have fun

    I know this is going to sound goofy, but I am glad that PhotoDraw is still among "the living"! <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15> I use this program and was provided a solution for getting it back on track, just not too long ago!! Hopefully, there will be an archive of some sort if it ever does 'bite the dust'? <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> Or is there someway to download it for my own use? <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    I think we should add Picture It to the Photo Draw listing.

    Re: VSTO (2003)

    Now that I've (ab)used VSTO for a few daze, I am certain that the issues for VSTO are different enough to warrant a separate forum.

    Re: VSTO (2003)

    I'd vote for combining it with .NET, as it is to be used in the .NET environment. Otherwise, Howard, you might be talking to just yourself. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: VSTO (2003)

    VSTO needs to be separated from the .NET forum because of the heavy interaction with VBA.
    And it's not the same as automating VBA from VB 6.

    I'm not convinced. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> (Any more than the last time.) Let's see how it evolves. In the meantime, please direct your posts to wherever the most relevant expertise seems likely to reside (VB/VBA or .NET, as the case may be).

    *What* heavy interaction with VBA? Are you talking about the Access tools? You create managed code in VS.Net. You create VBA code in the application engines themselves. There are .Net hooks in Word and Excel, but that's far from being interaction with VBA.

    VSTO currently supports only Word and Excel.

    Wait six months, I'm sure Microsoft will find a way to break the rest of the Office Applications with VSTO by then.

    Re: VSTO (2003)

    If it were up to me (which is isn't), not only would there be no new forum for VSTO, but I'd stick .NET back in there with VB/VBA where it belongs. Last time I checked .NET had a sum total of 127 threads & 432 posts, including a significant number of posts without a single reply. Most of those few who do post in .NET are probably "evolving" to .NET from a VB background, as opposed to some other language, and obvious issues would be stuff like, I used to do this or that in VB or VBA, how do I do it in .NET? Or how do I migrate my VB6 app to VB.NET, etc. So why not just keep it in VB/VBA. When submitting new post, the info entered in "Version" box should make it clear whether queston concerns VB, VBA, or .NET, or VSTO, or whatever.

    While I'm at it, I would like to totally abolish "Cooking". Cooking is what they invented the microwave for.

    Oh, but Mark, The whole reason <img src=/S/witch.gif border=0 alt=witch width=15 height=15> added the cooking board was to try to curb the bad eating habits of those of us of the "computer geek" persuasion living off caffeine, cheetos and twinkees... <img src=/S/hiding.gif border=0 alt=hiding width=70 height=24> <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
