LoadResConstants Enum



This API is now obsolete.

Provides constants for compatibility with the Visual Basic 6.0 LoadResPicture function.

public enum class LoadResConstants
[System.Obsolete("Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.* classes are obsolete and supported within 32 bit processes only. https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=160862")]
public enum LoadResConstants
type LoadResConstants = 
Public Enum LoadResConstants


ResBitmap 0

Equivalent to the Visual Basic 6.0 constant vbResBitmap.

ResCursor 2

Equivalent to the Visual Basic 6.0 constant vbResCursor.

ResIcon 1

Equivalent to the Visual Basic 6.0 constant vbResIcon.


In Visual Basic 6.0, the LoadResPicture function was used to load a resource from a file; the LoadResPicture constants specified the type of resource to load. In Visual Basic, the LoadResPicture function is no longer supported.

These constants enable code that has been upgraded from Visual Basic 6.0 to continue to run without additional modification.


Functions and objects in the Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6 namespace are provided for use by the tools for upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic. In most cases, these functions and objects duplicate functionality that you can find in other namespaces in the .NET Framework. They are necessary only when the Visual Basic 6.0 code model differs significantly from the .NET Framework implementation.
