    Convert VB to VBA

    Hi I need convert from VB to VBA this Code :
    Private Sub btnCheck_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
        ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnGo.Click
        Me.Cursor = Cursors.WaitCursor
        ' Get the threshold.
        Dim threshold As Integer = _
        ' Load the images.
        Dim bmp1 As Bitmap = Image.FromFile(txtFile1.Text)
        Dim bmp2 As Bitmap = Image.FromFile(txtFile2.Text)
        ' Make a difference image.
        Dim wid As Integer = Math.Min(bmp1.Width, bmp2.Width)
        Dim hgt As Integer = Math.Min(bmp1.Height, bmp2.Height)
        Dim bmp3 As New Bitmap(wid, hgt)
        ' Create the difference image.
        Dim are_identical As Boolean = True
        Dim r1, g1, b1, r2, g2, b2, r3, g3, b3 As Integer
        Dim color1, color2 As Color
        Dim eq_color As Color = Color.White
        Dim ne_color As Color = Color.Red
        Dim dr, dg, db, diff As Integer
        For x As Integer = 0 To wid - 1
            For y As Integer = 0 To hgt - 1
                color1 = bmp1.GetPixel(x, y)
                color2 = bmp2.GetPixel(x, y)
                dr = CInt(color1.R) - color2.R
                dg = CInt(color1.G) - color2.G
                db = CInt(color1.B) - color2.B
                diff = dr * dr + dg * dg + db * db
                If diff <= threshold Then
                    bmp3.SetPixel(x, y, eq_color)
                    bmp3.SetPixel(x, y, ne_color)
                    are_identical = False
                End If
            Next y
        Next x
        ' Display the result.
        picResult.Image = bmp3
        Me.Cursor = Cursors.Default
        If (bmp1.Width <> bmp2.Width) OrElse (bmp1.Height <> _
            bmp2.Height) Then are_identical = False
        If are_identical Then
            MessageBox.Show("The images are identical")
            MessageBox.Show("The images are different")
        End If
    End Sub

    You shouldn't put your code inside the quote tabs, it loses all the formatting. Use the VB or # , it will make it much easier for us to read.

    Re: Convert VB to VBA

    I swapped the QUOTE tags for CODE tags (the # button) to clean up the display.

    There's no magic means to convert .NET to VBA that I'm aware of, nor the other way around, either. However, the two languages are pretty similar, so a good place to start might be to just copy and paste the code then fix the differences.

    You can get rid of the DoEvents call. That doesn't do anything at all in the method shown, as there simply can't be any pending messages to process at that time.

    You can change Integer.Parse to CInt(), which I think is what VBA would be using. Neither one is great, but they are bad in the same way, so if Integer.Parse was working, then CInt will work as well.

    Integers have a different size in VBA, but it looks like that shouldn't matter much for you. Diff might need to be Long. The other items are really just bytes, so they'll fit just fine into Integers no matter what size the integer is.

    You'll likely have some kind of issue with loading the bitmaps from the files, as that is likely different in VBA. I don't know how VBA does it, though I'm sure there is a way. You might also have issues with GetPixel and SetPixel, since they may be different in VBA. Still, you can try the copy and paste and just deal with the errors as they arise.

    I believe GetPixel and SetPixel may be terribly slow for this, too. That's a different issue, though, especially if those two methods don't exist in VBA. If they DO exist in VBA, you might want a faster image processing mechanism. Not sure what would be available in VBA.
    My usual boring signature: Nothing
