About the Book

Upgrade your Visual Basic 6.0 applications to Visual Basic .NET with programming tips, tricks, and side-by-side code comparisons direct from the source—Microsoft.

Microsoft Visual Basic .NET offers remarkable power and flexibility, with richer object models for data, forms, transactions, and more. But you must upgrade applications before they’ll compile and run in the Microsoft .NET environment. Get the in-depth technical details you need to upgrade Visual Basic applications efficiently with this upgrade-specific reference. Learn about advanced Visual Basic .NET functionality such as inheritance, multithreading, drag-and-drop XML Web services, RAD programmability for servers, the forms package, and more. Examine side-by-side code examples, and learn to evaluate which projects can benefit from an upgrade and which might function best in a mixed-code environment. And get programming tips and tricks that help you make the most of the epic shift to .NET. This book covers these topics: • Differences between Visual Basic 6.0 and Visual Basic .NET • Upgrade options • Preparing your project for an upgrade • Your first upgrade • Common tasks in Visual Basic .NET • What the Upgrade Wizard does • Errors, warnings, and issues • COM interoperability using both versions • Common upgrade problems • Fixing language and form problems • ActiveX® controls and COM libraries • What to do with data • Upgrading Microsoft Transaction Server/COM+ components • Application Wizard projects • Adding value to your application • Replacing ActiveX controls with Windows® Forms controls • Moving from ADO to ADO.NET • Appendixes: Object models, compatibility library contents, and helper class code INCLUDED ON CD-ROM: • A fully searchable electronic copy of the book • Sample code written in Visual Basic 6.0 and Visual Basic .NET
