Many people know me on this site after only two threads, but I have good news. I don't need help with a program. My teacher shows the class codes by typing up her own on ur program and showing up on the overhead. The problem is where I sit and many others in the class do, we can't see because the font is so small, and she said she doesn't know how to make her font larger. If you know how to, can you please tell me. It will make me and everyone in the back of the room see better. :) The program is Visual Basics C++ 6.0 or something like that.

Visual Basics C++....LOL, do you mean Visual BASIC or Visual C++? Those are 2 different languages, im assuming shes using microsofts IDE for them so no I dont think there is a way to increase the font, tell her to use a different IDE or make on in Visual BASIC...or I believe windows has a magnifying glass utility for people with bad vision, try that.

Hope that helps

Guys, it's not Visual Basics. it's C++ but in my school its called Visual Basics C++ 6.0. i know i didn't get it either because it meantions visual basics in it. Anyway im not kidding when I say my school is guetto. So there probably not a way to expand the font, but thanks for the replys.

There is no such thing as "Visual Basics C++ 6.0". No matter how "guetto" your school is, I doubt they resort to using imaginary software.

How about you have your teacher make copies of the overhead and hand them out. That is what I would do.

Or if your class is in a computer lab and the computers are networked, then giving access to the files so you can follow along on your screen works as well. It also doesn't waste paper.

It's all the same IDE.

They're somewhat different in version 6 though, although the instructions you provided work just fine for both, and seem to be pretty clear, but just in case...

In Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0, you can change the font size in the IDE by going to Tools>Options:Editor Format. You can change the font, font size, and syntax-highlighting colours from this dialogue for various types of text the IDE expects to appear. Just changing the font size for all of them should do what you're after.

Now, for Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0; Tools>Options:Format (you'll have to scroll the tab-strip across, it's way over to the right). Works in a similar fashion to the VB IDE, but gives you a bit more control. Changing the font size for the category "source windows" should do what you're after.


I agree with the suggestion of handing out printouts of the code if some people are unable to see though, it's just more convenient, and would allow people to access bits of the code that weren't still on screen. Alternately, most school's and colleges tend to have thier PCs networked - she could provide a copy accesible over the network.
