Re: [TV] Started developing a project in VB


Thanks Gareth, that looks like it'll be very useful. I might see if I can do
the same kind of thing with Picture Boxes as I can then implement clicking
on the programs to get more information. Although, a form with hundreds of
picture boxes might be rather slow and unstable! :-(

Thanks for all your hard work
