  • Hi Walkey47,

    Yes, you can export your smallbasic programs as a VB project which you can then extend using VB code.  The limitation is that you still need to use the smallbasiclibrary.dll library.

    I'm not a VB programmer myself, so I can't give you specifics, but there is a basic overview on the wiki:

    Others on this forum can probably chime in with more detail or answer specific questions.

    I wrote little bit about [Graduate] in this TechNet Wiki article.  The program created by [Graduate] has following properties:

    • calling Small Basic libraries
    • using Primitive class for all variables
