Can a screen designed in VB dot net be used by MicroFocus Cobol? If so, how?
Thanks.

    To which Micro Focus product are you referring?

    In Visual COBOL you can create managed COBOL projects that interact directly with VB.NET projects so you could display a VB.NET form directly from a managed COBOL class by invoking its class methods.

    If you wish to interact with a VB.NET form from within a native COBOL application compiled with Net Express you can do this through COM Interop although this is not as straightforward.

    If you give us some more detail as to what exactly it is that you wish to do then we can perhaps send you a sample which demonstrates the capability that you are looking for...

    Thanks.
