ISSUE #2038

    Form property 1%.ScaleMode is not supported.


    In VB6 you could use a scale mode different to pixels to use as the unit for measures and locations in a form. This is not longer supported by .Net.


    Use these functions, to convert units to pixels, depending of the scale mode. Unit can be centimeters, millimeters, inches, etc.

    • Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6.Support.ToPixelsX(value, VB6.ScaleMode.Unit)
    • Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6.Support.ToPixelsY(value, VB6.ScaleMode.Unit)
    • Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6.Support.TwipsToPixelsX(value)
    • Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6.Support.TwipsToPixelsY(value)

    Sample VB6

    PublicSub SetScaleMode()
         Me.ScaleMode = 1 'Twips
         Me.Width = 10000

    Target VB.NET

    PublicSub SetScaleMode()
         'UPGRADE_ISSUE: (2038) Form property ewi2038.ScaleMode is not supported.
         ScaleMode = 1
         Width = Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6.Support.TwipsToPixelsX(100)

    Target C#

    publicvoid SetScaleMode()
               //UPGRADE_ISSUE: (2038) Form property ewi2038.ScaleMode is not supported.
               this.ScaleMode = 1; //Twips
               this.Width = (int) VB6.TwipsToPixelsX(10000);
