Contains various utility functions for backward compatibility with Visual Basic 6.0.
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.dll)
The functions in this class are used during the upgrade of Visual Basic 6.0 projects to Visual Basic 2008. Some functions replace Visual Basic 6.0 functions that are no longer supported in Visual Basic 2008; others compensate for differences in the object models.
To use functions in this class in a Visual Basic 2008 project, add a reference to the Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6 namespace.
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.
