Sheridan
In the following section, defines how the Sheridan controls are upgraded.
Sheridan controls (now Infragistics) were a set of components widely used in VB6 that provided some functionality not present in the built-in VB6 controls. Since these controls are so widely used Mobilize has added support for the most common of them.
The mappings created by Mobilize for these controls change some of them to equivalent third-party components in .NET or standard .NET controls. As usual, there’s also the possibility to continue using the ActiveX controls through COM Interop.

It incorporates a system of sliding Groups, each of which is identified by its header. Clicking a Group's header causes the group to become active, slide into view and display the ListItems it contains.
The ActiveListBar has a single collection of items regardless of the group where they are located. The SSListItem.Index property indicates the position of the item in the collection.
Deployment Note:
The following list shows which SSListBar components are mapped to Infragistics UltraWinListBar.NET Suite equivalents:

7.2. To COM Interop

This feature will take the legacy COM control and create an interoperability code wrapper to make it visible from the managed code. This means the control's functionality will remain the same since it will use the same binary, but the resulting application will depend on the legacy control.
Original VB6 code:
Begin Listbar.SSListBar SSListBar1
Groups(1).CurrentGroup= -1 'True'
Groups(1).Caption= "New Group"
End
C# code:
public AxListbar.AxSSListBar SSListBar1;
...
private void InitializeComponent(){
...
this.SSListBar1 = new AxListbar.AxSSListBar();
((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)
this.SSListBar1.OcxState = (System.Windows.Forms.AxHost.State) resources.GetObject("SSListBar1.OcxState");
...
}
VB.NET code:
Public WithEvents SSListBar1 As AxListbar.AxSSListBar
...
Private Sub InitializeComponent()
Me.SSListBar1 = New AxListbar.AxSSListBar
CType(Me.SSListBar1, System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize).BeginInit(
Me.SSListBar1.OcxState = CType(resources.GetObject("SSListBar1.OcxState"), System.Windows.Forms.AxHost.State)
...
End Sub

8. SSPanels

8.1. On (Empty SSPanel converted to Label)

Convert Threed.SSPanel classes to System.Windows.Forms.Label when the SSPanel doesn't have any other control inside. If it has controls inside, it will be converted to a System.Windows.Forms.Panel.
By using this option the converted application will not have any reference to the COM Component.
Class
Maps to
Threed.SSPanel.Height
System.Windows.Forms.Label.Height
Threed.SSPanel.Width
