What controls does the Visual Basic Upgrade Companion tool supports?

The Visual Basic Upgrade Companion supports all the inherent VB6 controls and all of its properties, along with dozens of 3rd party libraries from different vendors. The tool includes a set of plug-in dlls designed to automatically convert functionality from ActiveX libraries to .NET libraries, thus saving an important amount of time in code analysis and manual modifications. Each plug-in dll contains the transformation definitions for each third-party library.

If there is a library employed in your application that has no equivalent in .NET it can be accessed through COM interoperability without many problems, but we can also customize the Visual Basic Upgrade Companion to generate the desired mappings to inherent .NET components or other 3rd party libraries.
