Real Simple - Rulers and Grids

    Question

  • Now I not had much use with VB.
    All I want to know is if there is any way you can have a ruler and grid showing while you put together a GUI?

  • You can set the grid size and options at Tools | Options | Windows Form Designer | General.  AFAIK there is no option for a ruler.

  • In fact not as simple as with Exell, but that is why there are tools like Excell.

    It makes no sense to create things which exist already.

    If you want more sophisticated grids, which have to do with data (whatever data that is), which is not only supplied by the user, then you get things like DataGridViews and ListViews (the later is the same as the left pane from windows explorer) or GridViews who are meant for use in a Webpage.

    Be aware that VB is not only for direct screen programming (by developers often called Forms development).

    You can use VB to create applications for almost everthing without really limits although it is mosty related to showing. 
    (Like mobile devices, webpages, screens) but also things what help those like databases, webservices, computer services.
