Greetings,
I have never worked with an add in before, so I will make this as simple as
possible.
Hopefully, you shall have enough knowledge and patience to guide me.

I am looking to build a very simple add in,
One that shall take the current code inside a VB Form and
save it with the following...
<html>
<head>
<title> Name of form </title>
</head>
<body>

<xmp> or <pre>

Code inside the Visual Basic Form

</xmp> or <pre>
</body>
</html>

Please guide me threw this process,
will only award full points if it works.

Thank you,
S. McColgan

Piece of cake. Here is the module in question. If you would like the entire working project, send you email address.

Option Explicit

Public GlobalInstance As VBIDE.VBE  ' Initialize this in Connect.OnConnection

Sub ShowComponentCode(sComponentName As String, sHTMLText As String)

    Dim myComponent As VBComponent
    Dim myProj As VBProject
    Dim myCodeModule As CodeModule
    Dim myCodePane As CodePane
       
    Set myProj = GlobalInstance.ActiveVBProject
    sHTMLText = ""
   
    On Error Resume Next
    Set myComponent = myProj.VBComponents(sComponentName)
    If Err.Number <> 0 Then
        ' No component of this name.
        Exit Sub
    End If
   
    sHTMLText = "<html>" & vbCrLf & "<head>" & myComponent.Name & vbCrLf
    sHTMLText = sHTMLText & "</head>" & vbCrLf & "<body>" & vbCrLf & "<xmp>" & vbCrLf
   
    Set myCodeModule = myComponent.CodeModule
   
    sHTMLText = sHTMLText & myCodeModule.Lines(1, myCodeModule.CountOfLines) & vbCrLf
   
    sHTMLText = sHTMLText & "</xmp>" & vbCrLf
    sHTMLText = sHTMLText & "</body>" & vbCrLf
    sHTMLText = sHTMLText & "</html>" & vbCrLf
End Sub
