Quite often, a url or web address redirects to a direct url in the web browser. For example, affiliate marketers often have urls that redirect to another url in an effort to hide the link
The most common known way to move all the items of one listbox to another is through the use of a loop like so:
dim i%: for i% = 0 to (SourcListbox.listcount - 1)
That method is fine and there is nothing wrong
Preventing the Enter or Return key from being pressed and processed by the webbrowser control in VB6 is not as straight forward as you may, at first glance think.

There are two basic bits of code on the internet for ensuring your listbox does not add a duplicate item to it.
- One of the ways is to loop through ever single list item and compare each of the list items to the item you want to add. If you get through the entire list without a match you know you have no duplicate so the item gets added to the listbox.
DOWNSIDE: slow, especially if your list has thousands of items.
- The second way is setting the .text of the listbox to whatever the text is you want to add. For example if you want to add “a big fury cat”, set list1.text = “a big fury cat” and then check the listindex property. If it is -1 then the item is not in the list and you can add it.
DOWNSIDE: does not work if the .multiselect is either 1- Simple or 2 – Extended. Only works if the listbox .multiselect property is 0 – none.

The flexgrid control is a killer control but one of its flaws is that something is always selected in the control, meaning, there is always at least a single cell selected which causes that
I was baffled at all the complicated supposed solutions to removing all the rows from a flexgrid control from looping through the last row to the first step -1 to many other
It appears that some people can scroll the msFlexGrid control with their mouse wheel with no problem while others can not. Not sure it is a Windows version problem or a type-of-mouse problem
This page shows you how to make it so when you hover your mouse over a listbox, a tooltip is displayed that is the text of the .listitem being hovered over. This is useful
