Hello,

I have a fairly complex app that I plan to migrate to VB.NET. The app isa design tool and has a picture box to display the graphics. Line andPoly
Bezier are the main graphics functions that are being used apart from LoadImage..

I remeber reading that VB.NET graphics work very differently from VB6.0and hence was wondering if this could hinder the migration. Woulditrather be better to start from a scratch in VB.NET than migrate?

Your comments would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Most of the suggestions I have seen go like this:

If your app was created in VB6, and is working, continue to use VB6 to maintain it.
Create your new apps in VB.Net.
You can try to upgrade the app from VB6 to VB.Net, but you will spend more time trying to get it to work than it would take to start it all over in VB.Net

YMMV
