Default VB6 to .NET User Controls

Hello all,

I have a little .NET vs. VS 6 user control curiosity! *^_^* any takers?

If I have a project that contains a user control that I made in VS6 and then want to convert it to VS.NET, can I still call the component / dll from within a test application that was created mainly in VB6? Does anyone have exerience with the conversion of user controls - because when the project with the user control is converted to .Net, the user control code is totally gone in the .Net version of the project!

Well a little insight would help me a long way!
Thanks guys,

Interop is slow. Very slow. I don't suggest it. If you can avoid going over that "COM->.NET" bridge, you should.

I suggest you have two versions of the object- and try to phaze out the VB6 version, if possible, in your other applications. Do this by upgrading, as needed and warrented, your VB6 apps.
