VBRun: The Visual Basic 6.0 Resource Center

I’m happy to announced that we launched a new subsite for the Visual Basic Developers Center today:  VBRun: The Visual Basic 6.0 Resource center

This site highlights some of our best VB 6.0 content from the MSDN archive, has some new content on making Visual Basic 6.0 and VB .NET work together and has some additional training on VB .NET for those who are interested.  We hope that this site provides VB6 developers information that they need for their current development and ideas on how they could address development challenges using VB .NET. 

The site will continue to grow and change over time.  Certainly we’ll be adding new content, but we’re also looking for more community interaction and suggestions on how things should grow.  Do you have ideas?  Let me know.

    One area that hasn’t been covered is exposing ParamArrays to COM clients.

    In order to expose a .NET method with a ParamArray parameter to a COM client, it would be necessary to specifiy ByRef ParamArray, which the compiler won’t allow. Removing the ParamArray modifier and applying the ParamArray attribute is also not allowed.

    There doesn’t seem to be any way to make this work, short of writing the .NET code in C++. If there is a way to make it work without resorting to C++ or re-writing the existing COM clients, I would like to see an article demonstrating how.

    If it isn’t possible in v1.1, I’d like to see the v2 marshaller add seamless, bi-directional support for ParamArrays.
