When a Visual Basic 6.0 WebClass project is upgraded to Visual Basic Code Name "Orcas", it is converted to an ASP.NET Web-site project.

Declarations are added to your project: one for the WebClass and one for each WebItem and Template in the WebClass project. A Page_Load event procedure is added to the project. This creates first a WebClass object and then WebItem objects for each WebItem and Template associated with the Visual Basic 6.0 WebClass project. Finally, in the Page_Load event procedure, you will see a call to the WebClass Compatibility runtime: ProcessEvents. This enables the runtime to render the WebItem specified in the Request URL. This code is the only new code added to your upgraded project and serves only to emulate the underlying behavior of the Visual Basic 6.0 WebClass runtime.
