    It's a process wherby an objects state is converted to serial data i.e XML, Binary etc.

    Take a look at this

    Hope this helps

    Re: VB6 and Serialized XML

    I take it this is possible in VB6? I know it can be done in VB2005. Does anyone know of any examples around for serialized xml and VB6?

    I am fairly new to VB programming and have done some VB6 stuff and thought about changing over to 2005 but they have changed alot of stuff, especially using the serial port.

    I want to send serialized xml through the serial port. If i use 2005 i have to learn alot of things over.

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    It's hard to come across documentation for XML and VB6 but there are good examples for 2005. Here are all the links i could find for you. The * indicates they have downloads.

    Wow! Thanks alot! At least you guys haven't told me since i am debating on VB2005 Express that i needed to post there!

    I am just unsure of the route i want to take, my program that i want to do is not that extreme so i am debating on to stay with VB6 or goto 2005express. I know this is a forum for VB6< any suggestions to make the move or not?

    Thanks for the help!

    Depends on what you want to move for really. VB.NET is a great language however there have been a few modifications to the language structure i.e. Syntax, i think that is what throws most people of but from what i can see it's quite easy to learn . If you want to learn it buy this it's great. This is what i am learning from at the moment. it's a great resource.

    In my opinion i think VB.NET is more dynamic than VB6. If you are doing anything with web based applications then i would recommend .NET over VB6. i think you will find you may get better results with your project using .NET than VB6, then again this is just my opinion. I would get advice from people who know a little bit more then me

    Hope this helps
