Thread: strPtr()?

  1. #1
    - John of Arc - Guest

    strPtr()?

    How does on use strPtr() from VB?
    Is it not documented anywhere?
    Are there other such undocumented features?

    Thanks.

    There is also ObjPtr and VarPtr. There others also, eg: the textbox has a
    clear method.

    To find them, push F2, right click and select Show Hidden Members

    John: A search for "StrPtr" at http://search.microsoft.com/us/dev/ turned up

    Why not look up the myriad of answers from where you posted elsewhere?

    Re: strPtr()?

    Open the object browser in VB and browse the VBA library.
    If you right-click within the object browser you get a "Show Hidden members"
    option.
    If you switch this on, you will find StrPtr listed under _HiddenModule.

    Note that with anything you find out about this way:
    "Microsoft does not guarantee that they will be available in future releases
    of Visual Basic."

    Not that you should let that put you off using StrPtr if you really need it.
    Just think
    about the life-time of your source code and whether it matters if the
    feature you use
    isn't available in the next version of VB.

    Michael: Thanks. I searched on deja.com before I asked, but couldn't find
    anything. I was mostly concerned that he may have multi-posted to this
    server, where I can do something about it. ;-)
