Windows Forms for Visual Basic 6.0 Users

In Visual Basic 6.0 (and all earlier versions of Visual Basic), Windows-based applications were created using forms that were an integral part of the Visual Basic Runtime. In Visual Basic 2008, Windows-based 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-based applications; however, there are a number of differences between Windows Forms and controls and Visual Basic 6.0 Forms and controls.
