FormShowConstants Enumeration

Note: This API is now obsolete.

Provides constants for compatibility with the Visual Basic 6.0 Show method.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.dll)

[ObsoleteAttribute("Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.* classes are obsolete and supported within 32 bit processes only. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=160862")]
public enum FormShowConstants

Member nameDescription
ModalEquivalent to the Visual Basic 6.0 constant vbModal.
ModelessEquivalent to the Visual Basic 6.0 constant vbModeless.

In Visual Basic 6.0, the Modal parameter of the Show method was used to determine whether a form would be shown as a modal dialog box. In Visual Basic, the Modal parameter is replaced by two different Show methods: Show and ShowDialog.

These constants enable code that has been upgraded from Visual Basic 6.0 to continue to run without additional modification.

NoteNote

Functions and objects in the Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6 namespace are provided for use by the tools for upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic. In most cases, these functions and objects duplicate functionality that you can find in other namespaces in the .NET Framework. They are necessary only when the Visual Basic 6.0 code model differs significantly from the .NET Framework implementation.
