A statement attempts to access a programming element which has been marked with the ObsoleteAttribute attribute and the directive to treat it as a warning.
You can mark any programming element as being no longer in use by applying ObsoleteAttribute to it. If you do this, you can set the attribute's IsError property to either
False. If you set it to
True, the compiler treats an attempt to use the element as an error. If you set it to
False, or let it default to
False, the compiler issues a warning if there is an attempt to use the element.
By default, this message is a warning, because the IsError property of ObsoleteAttribute is
False. For more information about hiding warnings or treating warnings as errors, see Configuring Warnings in Visual Basic.
Error ID: BC40008
