Forms Changes in Visual Basic .NET

In Visual Basic 6.0 (and all earlier versions of Visual Basic), Windows applications were creating using forms that were an integral part of the Visual Basic runtime. In Visual Basic .NET, Windows applications are created using Windows Forms, which are provided by the .NET Framework.

Windows Forms and Windows Forms controls provide a richer, more extensible architecture for developing Windows applications; however, there are a number of differences between Windows Forms and controls and Visual Basic 6.0 Forms and controls. The following topics are designed to help you discover the differences.
