ShiftConstants Enumeration

Provides constants for compatibility with the shift parameter mask constants in Visual Basic 6.0.

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

public enum ShiftConstants

Member nameDescription
ShiftMaskEquivalent to the Visual Basic 6.0 constant vbShiftMask.
CtrlMaskEquivalent to the Visual Basic 6.0 constant vbCtrlMask.
AltMaskEquivalent to the Visual Basic 6.0 constant vbAltMask.

In Visual Basic 6.0, shift parameter mask constants were used to represent the state of modifier keys in the Shift parameter of various key and mouse event handlers. In Visual Basic 2008, the parameters for key and mouse events have changed, and these constants are no longer necessary. 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 2008. 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.
