ABB 800xA VB graphics to PG2 graphics
Now I start to update to vesion 5.1 on new hardware.
So here is my question.
How do I convert the images from system 5.0 which is VB to 5.1 which is PG2
I mean I've been told it should be possible to konveterer directly from VB to PG2 but are not sure.
So please help.

Hello Finn Hansen,
Yes there exists a converter from VB to PG2. However, "User-Defined" VB-code is not supported in the conversion and manual conversion should be done by the following method:
1) Replace the VB-code with expressions in the new expression editor.
§Several new functions are available to support this.
2)Create a separate aspect using Aspect Express
3)“Wrap” the element so that it can be used in the new environment.
Note: Wrapping should only be used as an exception for a very limited number of elements since the run-time performance will be affected.
In this post, I also attach the Process Graphic Migration Tool Manual which should explain how the migration works.
In addition, you can still use the VB Graphic in the 5.1 system, however you are recommended to to the migration to PG2.
