    Can I use VB6 User Controls in TwinBasic?

    I downloaded and played around with TwinBasic today. It's come quite a long way since the early days when I first looked at it! Seems like I might be able to port over much of my existing VB6 code potentially.

    I do make use of several user controls in VB6 however - both my own and third party ones. Can I use those in TwinBasic? I found no way to easily import a CTL file and have the control appear in the Toolbox. I see that I can make Custom Controls in TwinBasic but that's not what I'm asking about - I want to import existing user controls that are already in use in my programs.

    Yes you can use them. Both .ctl and .ocx.

    Right now to import them you need to import a VBP project file that contains it (any program using it, or the VBP you use for compiling to ocx-- Forms are not strictly needed).

    Other than the very limited way to get them in right now, support is pretty good. Both my ucShellBrowse/ucShellTree control, and Krool's VBCCR/VBFlexGrid controls, are large, complex controls, and they all work in tB, both as .ctls (it will be autoconverted into a .tbcontrol/.twin file) and we can compile them as OCX. There's a few missing features (UC property pages can't be used just yet for .ctls) and lingering bugs, but most UCs should work fine at this point.
