It's "weird feature day" again... this is a real WTF...

I was just fiddling around a bit trying to scroll the code view in VB6 without having to touch the mouse.
So I tried:

CTRL+down arrow... nothing
ALT+down arrow... nothing
SHIFT+down arrow... nothing
CTRL+ALT+down arrow... WTF!!!!!1112





CTRL+ALT+up arrow fixes things again BTW

[edit]
For those who "don't get it", this combination flips the screen upside down.
It doesn't work here at home though, which could mean it's something in VB6 or something else my boss and me both have installed on our computer.

Yeh, I'm bored.
I just wrote this comment in some existing code:

Code:
'This function adapts the 'EmplSpecialPaym' Table which
'contains calculated special payment for an Employee in a Period.
'Who would have guessed that retrieving information is also considered adapting.
'Yes, that's right, this function also retrieves data.
'Hey! Don't look at me now, I didn't make it! I just write the sporadic comments in this code.
Function AdaptEmplSpecialPayment(Empl As Long, Period As Integer, _
            FDate As Long, TDate As Long, pType As Integer, _
            Paym As Single, Optional ActTime As Long, _
            Optional GetData As Boolean = False) As Boolean

etc etc

Arrow Re: It's "weird feature day" again... this is a real WTF...

This CTRL + ALT + Down doesn't work for me either.


But what REALLY REALLY sucks? In the code editor window of Visual Basic 6.0, my mouse wheel scrolling doesn't work. No, it's not the "only use ms office compatible mouse scrolling" option in system control settings. It just doesn't work in VB6.
I've noticed that on another computer of mine.

Also once I noticed in VB6: If you place a vertical scrollbar inside a frame, and run the app from inside the IDE (F5), using your mouthwheel inside the frame actually moves the scrollbar. I found this automatic implementation really nice and told everyone about it.
I then gave away compiled exe-files of some sort of level-editor, and see: It didn't work in there.
From that time on, I couldn't reproduce it neither get something similar to work ever again :-/

And oh yeah, I still want to use VB for my whatever-server...




Oh, and while it's still stupid features day:
You know when you double-click on the top-bar of a window, it maximizes to full screen?
But then click on the icon on the top left of that bar. And the window closes. Why the hell?

Re: It's "weird feature day" again... this is a real WTF...

Apparently in relation to the screen flipping thing:

"its actually not a virus or anything so naughty - but to do with Intel Extreme Graphics
- which "powers" a lot of VDUs. Go to control panel --> double click Intel Extreme
Graphics, click rotation and then deselect the enable rotation box. Hey presto -
bobs your uncle..."
