Extracting list of VB symbols whicch are used in graphic displays(generating vb graphics dependency report)
Its a VB-PG2 5.1 migration Project:
We have around 300+ graphic elements in object type structure under particular library.
But not all graphic elements are used in graphic displays.
Is there any way get generate a dependency report to identify/list graphic elements used in all graphic displays??
(Earlier in 5.0 systems, if we try to delete an graphic elements, it pops info showing reference displays where element is uses. As i have only 5.1 system it is simply deleting the element even if it use in graphic display)

I think i have answered for this question few weeks back.
you can use PG2 5.1 Graphic tool to extract VB symbols;limitation-it works for only categary(Aspect)-Graphic display.
It will extract complete graphic element list,tag names,graphic display list......etc.
it was great in 800xA 5.0 when you could try to delete a graphic element, and if used it was not removed....
Now in 5.1, I think the way I should do it, is trying to Migrate each display, and when there is an element not converted to PG2 yet, it will ask you to convert it too.
I would write it down, but not letting the migration tool do it automatically, but I do it manually from VB Migration tool, to have better control.
