public static double FromPixelsUserX(
	double X,
	double ScaleLeft,
	double ScaleWidth,
	int OriginalWidthInPixels


Type: System.Double

A Double that represents the X coordinate.

Type: System.Double

A Double that represents the Visual Basic 6.0 ScaleLeft for the current ScaleMode.

Type: System.Double

A Double that represents the Visual Basic 6.0 ScaleWidth for the current ScaleMode.

Type: System.Int32

An Integer that represents the width in pixels.

Return Value

Type: System.Double

A Double that contains the converted Visual Basic 6.0 ScaleLeft.

Visual Basic 6.0 supported multiple coordinate systems defined by a ScaleMode property. This included a user-defined value. Visual Basic only supports a coordinate system that is based on pixels. This function is used by the upgrade tools to convert between pixels and a user-defined scale value.


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.
