vb2Py Version 0.2 Released

vb2py is a toolkit to aid in the conversion of Visual Basic projects to Python. The aim of the conversion is to match, as close as possible, the original VB applications both in terms of code behaviour and form layout.

Version 0.2 comprises a basic layout converter (converting to PythonCard) with a comprehensive code translation.

The key development in v0.2 is the inclusion of the full VB code parser and converter. Whereas v0.1 was just a form layout converter, v0.2 parses all the VB code and translates it to the equivalent Python code. All major code constructs from VB are covered (Sub, Fn, If, While, For, Select, With, Classes, Properties, Types, etc) and most instrinsic functions and constants are implemented as Python equivalents. ... read more

Version 0.1.1 Released

Version 0.1.1 is a small bug fix release. In v0.1 if you had some controls which had properties which were unset but vb2py was expecting them then you would run into problems. This release fixes a number of such issues.
