Exporting VB code to RTF or HTML format with Syntax Highlighting

This simple program enables you to export your VB code in color. Not many examples show how to color VB code into HTML highlighted text - his example shows how to export into both RTF and HTML formatted Text.


Simply open the code to export or paste it in the textbox.

If your aim is to convert it to rtf-format, first push the 'VB Colors' button. Then you save it using the right extension (rtf) or you select all, copy it and paste it in for instance Wordpad or Word.

If your aim is to convert it to html-format, just save it chosing the htm extension. The program will ask you to give a title for the html-page it generates.

The program relies upon a separate file, VBKeyW.txt , to provide all of the VB keywords - this could of course be hard-coded into the program.

 	This is a VB5 project, which will run under Windows 9x.
 	(it is made under Windows 95b)
 	One extra control is used besides the basic VB-controls
 	namely, the Rich Text Box Control.
 	to parse text into pieces-items
 	assemble html-pages on the fly
 	a minimal use of the Rich Text Box Control
 	None. I made the code myself and everybody is free
 	to use it.

    This is very useful for writing up documentation helpfiles in HTML (in regards to commenting VB code), as well as for training purposes.

    Does anybody know about something like that ?
