Steve - great job by the way - what I like most about it, is that it's FAST. Might want to include .EXE's in your FILEOPEN dialog ... haven't found those COM ICON's yet, will keep my eye open ...

I get "Error 429--ActiveX component can't create object" when I try to run TypeLibrary Viewer. My OS is Win XP.

Steve,

A couple of suggestions:
(1) Have a count of objects found on a system when browsing.
(2) Have a search option to look for a string within the objects when browsing: something like -
"*" & "STRsearch" & "*" and that way you could look for something within the object list..

Good work!

Kent

Hi all,

Just got back from vacation. It felt great to get away for awhile.

Regarding bugs: The 429 error (on XP) is related to the NT problem. Once I get it isolated it should work across the board.

About not showing the output for a function, for example, it only shows output if it's different than the default which is "as Variant" So if it's returning a string or boolean or whatever it will explicitly show that, but if it returns a Variant it's just assumed. If it would be better to always show the output that's an easy enough change to make. I may just go ahead and do that anyway.

Regarding changes: I'll include a count for # of items browsed in the next rev. I'll also include a search of the browse list so you don't have to scroll through the whole thing. Let me know if there are any other issues.

BTW--In addition to the COM icons, if someone can come up with a better icon for the app than that stupid "radioactive" icon I'd love to use it. I hate that icon, but historically I've used it on most beta software. Something a bit more related to the product would be in order here though. Any ideas?

Hey everybody,

Just updated the TypeLib viewer with the following fixes:

  • Now correctly works on NT systems
  • Error 429 "ActiveX component can't create object" is fixed
  • *.EXE is now added as a filetype from "File | Open..."
  • Counter is added from the browse menu showing how many items are listed
  • Search feature allows you to generate a subset from the main browse window
  • Default return types (e.g. "As Variant") are always listed
That's all I can think of right now. Anyway you can get it here
Hope it comes in handy.

Steve B
