Visual Basic 6.0 supported multiple coordinate systems defined by a ScaleMode property. This included a user-defined value. Visual Basic 2008 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.
