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.

Set newActiveTabs = SSActiveTabs1
newActiveTabs.AddControl SSActiveTabPanel1
MsgBox newActiveTabs.Caption
End Sub

C# code:

private void Form_Load()
{
TabControl newActiveTabs = SSActiveTabs1;
newActiveTabs.Controls.Add(SSActiveTabPanel1);
MessageBox.Show(newActiveTabs.Name, AssemblyHelper.GetTitle(System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly()));

1.2. 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.

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:
