Hi,

I converted VB6 Project to VB.net (Visual Studio 2005), using Conversion wizard in VS 2005.

After converting its gave me 200 Errors, I am trying to solve those.. I have few doubts here, let mention here. I need Experts help to clear those errors..

Q1.

If App.StartMode = vbSModeStandalone Then
            x = InputBox("Please enter your ID", My.Application.Info.Title)
            strID = x
            If frmMax.SetupMax Then
                frmMax.Show()
            End If
        End If

in this its giving error as

Name 'App' is not declared.
Name 'vbSModeStandalone' is not declared.  

Q2. In VB6 Code i have.
Printer.PaperSize = vbPRPSLetter
Printer.PrintQuality = vbPRPQHigh
Printer.CurrentX = 0
Printer.CurrentY = 0
Printer.Orientation = vbPRORLandscape
Printer.Font = VB6.FontChangeBold(Printer.Font, True)
Printer.PaintPicture(picForm.Image, 0, 1000)

for this Q2, its giving error as
Name 'Printer' is not declared

Q3. I have PictureBox in VB6, after converting.

picForm.ScaleMode = mTWIPS
Error: 'ScaleMode' is not a member of 'System.Windows.Forms.PictureBox'.

picForm.AutoRedraw = True
Error: 'AutoRedraw' is not a member of 'System.Windows.Forms.PictureBox'.

There is no direct equivalent of AutoRedraw in VB.Net:

    picForm.AutoRedraw = True
    Error: 'AutoRedraw' is not a member of 'System.Windows.Forms.PictureBox'.

How are you using the PictureBox?  With respect to this error alone...a completely different approach may be necessary to accomplish the same thing in VB.Net.
