System_CAPS_pubmethodWebItem(String, WebClass, String)

Initializes a new instance of the WebItem class.


Gets the name that is used in code to identify a WebItem object.


Gets or sets a value that determines whether to rescan for tokens that are contained within replacement text.


Gets or sets the string that is used to prefix replacement tag names in an HTML template.


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodWriteTemplate(HttpResponse, String)

When a Visual Basic 6.0 WebClass project is upgraded to Visual Basic, it is converted to an ASP.NET Web site project.

Declarations are added to your project: one for the WebClass and one for each of the WebItems and Templates in the WebClass project. A Page_Load event procedure is added to the project, creating first a WebClass object and then WebItem objects for each of the WebItems and Templates 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 only serves to emulate the underlying behavior of the Visual Basic 6.0 WebClass runtime.


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.
