In this in interview Jonathan Aneja, a Program Manager on the Visual Basic team, shows us how the Interop Forms Toolkit 2.0 helps you migrate your existing VB 6 applications one form at a time to .NET. He gives us insight on how we can write .NET user controls and forms to take advantage of the .NET framework but still run within our VB 6 applications. He shows us a demo where he creates a .NET user control which uses LINQ to SQL features and then shows it running inside a VB 6 form.
