I don't think the windows forms classes in mono are stable enough yet in
Mono for the forms in a VB app like yours.  Although not opensource, you
could try REALBasic.  They have a utility to help migrate Visual Basic
applications cross-platform.

Subject: [Mono-list] mono compatibility question


I'm Gergo Csibra from hungary, I'm new to mono and even .NET. I programming
in visual basic, and using ms access 'database' :) Because the vb6 is quite
old, and the access is a little weak, I plan to change my programming to
some .net platform.
I'm open to use C# and vb.net with databases like postgresql or firebird,
but I have a question, what keep me back to change.

Can I make multi platform programs with mono? Or can I compile for Linux,
Windows maybe Solaris the same sourcecode? Yes, little programs like "Hello
world!" can, but I have some _BIG_ projects with many frames, eg. 1MB visual
basic source code (I'm ready to convert/rewrite to C#, but only when I can
make platform independent programs).

Thanks for your answers,

ps.: I'm apologize my weak english :)

Best regards,
