Argh! Someone, please help!

I'm trying to write a terminal program in VB6 for a legacy app...
how do I go about creating a RESIZEABLE terminal window?
I've tried "print"ing to a picturebox and a form, but as soon as another window overlaps it, it loses the overlap area...
Also, can't seem to figure out the font size issue... the terminal program is to be a VT100 compatible (support for double high and wide characters)
Thanks in advance!

    Set AutoRedraw=true to avoid the overlap.

  • You have to work with the Console APIs of Windows. I think those APIs have got what you're tryin' to code.

    Ok, I'm not sure how to init a console... also, will a console allow me to change the font on the fly? I need to Double Wide a character, and double high a character, and both..
    re: autodraw = true, thanks, I'll try that...
    I still don't like having to "print" to a form or picture, but I can use that if I can't find any other method.

    Thanks again...
    BTW, I'm using VB6.0

    Thanks again...
