    VB6 Console Mode

    Hi There

    I'm using Visual Basic 6 for a Computing exam I have this summer and part of the exam is to write a program from a description that they give you with VB6 in 'console mode'. Unfortunately I'm not sure how to get VB6 into 'console mode' to enable me to code so that it basically looks like any other console programming language e.g. pascal. I've googled it and haven't found anything and so any help would be much appreciated!

    Re: VB6 Console Mode

    You can start a VB6 app from the command line, but not write one. You can open a command window and execute VBA scripting, but not both.

    Re: VB6 Console Mode

    Sounds like an odd requirement for a class on VB6. VB.Net on the other hand has an option to create console mode apps and is commonly done in many samples and exercises.
