VB Scrolling Text problem

Recommended Posts

I can get text to display in Flightsim 2002 but I it will not scroll, And its acts very funny when A message from Flightsim it self tries to replace. I know VB 6 is not a main language of a lot of people but here is the function I am using to output the text

Public Function FS_Output(output As String) 'Output to FS

Dim marker As Long

Dim dwResult As Long

marker = -1

'Write to Flight Sim

Call FSUIPC_WriteS(&H3380, 128, output, dwResult)

Call FSUIPC_WriteS(&H32FA, 2, VarPtr(marker), dwResult)

Call FSUIPC_Process(dwResult)

End Function

I am not sure its a VB problem but more or how I am using the WriteS the second WriteS does not seem to do anything. Any help would be great ful. Also one question I have been looking for an offset to write to the chat window as well as the text box at the top of the screen, any ideas?
