    Is there a visual form designer for vscode with VB6?

    I want to develop a general purpose form designer for vscode.

    Maybe someone can invent a universal form designer that supports vb.net, c#, python, html, python, vbs, vb6. By simply dragging and dropping buttons, text boxes and other controls, you can directly generate forms and control generation codes in various languages.
    =======================
    Here are some relevant comments I found online:
    vscode is just a text editor, if you want to run various codes, you must add various plug-ins.
    Install the corresponding plug-in and execute the relevant code

    There is nothing wrong with it. Form components are also code. VSCode just canít visualize the form design, so you need to abstract the form design and use code to control the position of the form components.
    Using C#...It seems that there is no tool like VS's form designer in VSCode for designing forms, and it is not convenient to add references compared to VS. But in fact, they are all writing code. If you are quite proficient, it is not impossible to compile files like .Designer.cs yourself, or add references to .csproj yourself. But if you are not proficient, it doesnít seem to be fast
    Yes, but troublesome thieves... You have to manually write the content in designer.cs by yourself, and draw the controls with x and y coordinates

    Similar to this, is it feasible to directly make the powerful visual form designer provided by Microsoft into a plug-in and add form design functions to VSCODE?

    like this29 messages) Is the debug window of the mobile terminal next to VScode a plug-in for VS? Does anyone know how to make it out -CSDN forum

    This is a plug-in provided by Google. After installing this plug-in, flutter, Google's new interface framework, you can use dart to develop it. The form is also built-in

    There are other visual designers that you can use to design a form, then write a program to convert all the values to something akin to what VB6 expects.

    However, I do agree with your point. If someone had created such a tool compatible with VB6 up this point, it would have been potentially usable by the various projects that are spontaneously appearing to replace VB6.

    It always seemed strange to me that such a clever community had not created a set of tools by now that could be pulled together to create something close to matching the idea of a usable GUI, if only matching VB6 in part.

    Does the Microsoft prohibit us from developing visual form designer plug-ins
