    If it's your app, show the code. I think the designer used something else, that's all. Many tools do that

    The link you have given looks like an advertisement for a CNC application and has nothing to do with code that VB6 developers can use to bring a modern look to VB6.

    It's kind of hard not to view it as an advertisement since the name of the site is "Machinist-calculator" of which doesn't readily post the typical code snippets that one would expect to find from a development site.

    I would expect to find something on the site like "Use our toolset to make your VB6 applications have that modern look", but this sort of thing seems suspiciously absent.

    I was simply responding to George1111's comment:
    "It would be nice to be able to Metro Style a VB6 application, (without rewriting it from scratch)
    Or at least make the application look a little more modern."

    I thought it would be helpful to show that VB6 can be used to make modern looking programs. I thought you would appreciate some examples of how I made my application fit the METRO look. I gave the link to my application's screenshot to illustrate my code snippets. I was not trying to advertise my product because it is a niche product for machinists, and I don't expect to make any sales by linking it on this forum.
    I am not trying to sell a "toolset to make your VB6 applications have that modern look" or anything else. I have received help for programming my products from forums such as this one, and I was trying to return the favour.

    So if my reward for trying to do good is to be flamed, you can stick your forum where the sun don't shine!

    Re: VB6 and Windows 8

    Lets keep it civil, folks. Personally, I don't suspect LittleHarry of wrongdoing. He showed a screenshot as an example and gave some code with explanation. I suppose it might have been less likely to come under scrutiny if he attached the screenshot to his post though. Agreed?

    I misread your original post. You did in fact explain your approach of using screenshots, but I for some reason was thinking (or hoping??) what you were showing was a VB6 product. At any rate, your product looks very modern - nice job.
