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.
