Re: Can NoteTab interact with a VB program?
- Dear Rick,
I am no vba expert. It's hard enough calling one Office program from
another. If I were doing what it sounds like you want to do. I would
turn on NoteTab's Pasteboard feature, select and copy whatever text
you wanted in Application A, then work on the html in NoteTab and then
paste it back.
From the NoteTab's Help File:
Any document in the editor (as long as it is not Read-Only) can be
configured to capture text that is cut or copied to the Clipboard from
any Windows application. First select the document you want to use as
a "paste board", then activate the "Use as Paste Board" option in the
Document menu. As long as this option is active, the document will
capture and append all text sent to the Clipboard. The computer will
beep or play a sound each time the paste-board document captures some
The paste-board feature, for example, makes it easy to create a list
of links or store important information as you surf the Web.
Note that only one document at a time can act as a paste board. When
you activate this option on another document, the previous paste-board
document stops capturing Clipboard text.
That's all I know,

I'm not aware of any.

Also of note is that Notetab may be controlled *very* well from the
command line. If the VB proggy can launch a commandline (command)
then you *can* do it.
Try search the Yahoo web archives here and *especially* also such
archives at the other list, ntb-clips which is the clips emailing
list. There have been *many* excellent posts in the clips archives
that are relevant here. search for: commandline also try command line
Also try relevant. for example:
also it's in the Notetab help somewhere. it's about how to for a
command line (command) that will launch Notetab with a certain file to
edit annd then also will run a clip that performs desired operations
on said file and then also save the changes and even finally close
Notetab if you want to do so.
then all remains to do is to draw in the changed file into your program.
Can WSH (windows scripting host) do anything for you? If so then you
might also post to the clips list (ntb-clips) where there's a
participant, Grant, who programs WSH with Notetab clips. I do not
know if Grant is subscribed to this ntb-scripts list or not.
