We are migrating VB 6.0 application to VB 2008. This application does screen scrapping of Mainframe by using IBM Personal Communication 3270 emulator (PCOMM).
Our office is now upgraded PCOMM to HOD and PCOMM is no more available in the current desktops. When we migrate the VB application to VB 2008 we have to use HOD in place of PCOMM.
I have been googling for the past one month to get any lead on this, so far I haven't got any single lead on this particular combination (VB.Net + IBM HOD)
I interested to know, is it possible to do connect Mainframe and do screen scrapping (TN3270) by using VB.Net with HOD.
If this is possible, where I can get some sample program.
If it is not possible, what is the alternative to achive this.
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the MSDN forum.
Whether you can use VB.Net with IBM HOD to deal with your issue depends upon IBM HOD whether supports VB.Net language and provides this service. It is out of scope here. I will suggest you to connect with IBM official website to find the answer as well as the sample code to your issue: http://www.ibm.com/us/en/.
Sorry for any inconvenience and have a nice day.
