public static void SetCancel(
	Button btn,
	bool Cancel


Type: System.Windows.Forms.Button

A Button.

Type: System.Boolean

true if the Visual Basic 6.0 CommandButton control's Cancel property is true; otherwise false.

In Visual Basic 6.0, the Boolean Default and Cancel properties of a CommandButton control determine whether the control responds to the ENTER or ESC keys, respectively. In Visual Basic, the Button control no longer has Default or Cancel properties. The Form object has AcceptButton and CancelButton properties that provide the same functionality; these properties take the name of a Button control as an argument.

This function is used by the upgrade tools to set the CancelButton property of a Form.based on the Cancel property of an upgraded Visual Basic 6.0 CommandButton control.


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.
