Is it possible to extract VB graphics into xml?
Is there a tool, or anyway to extract VB graphics into a text format such as xml?I would like to do a bulk change.
I noticed that there is a PG2toXML tool in 5.1, but it does not seem to do vb.
Also the pg2toXML tool is missing in version 6.0, is there a way to use it in version 6.0?

However, you can use VB6 Add-Ins to automate programing in the VB6 editor. In fact the VB6 graphics editor is basically a VB6 add-in.
Here is a link to an example add-in .... https://www.dropbox.com/sh/nmc8ezuc21...
This add in tidies up polyline objects by manipulating their corner co-ordinates. It should give you an idea how you can adjust active-X object properties inside VB6 graphics.
BIG DISCLAIMER .... It's so long since I wrote this add-in that I cannot really remember much about how it works or even how I wrote it. So, use at your own risk, blh blah blah etc. If it doesnt work, sorry - cant help.
If it does work, let me know and I'll upload it as an app.
