Generates Visual Basic 6.0 (ActiveX DLL) source and project files.

Selecting the Visual Basic 6.0 option displays the Language Properties that relate to Visual Basic code generation.

VB Component Name

This allows you to specify the Visual Basic Component Name of the generated project. Due to the constraint on COM name lengths, this must be fewer than 16 characters in length.

VB Project Description

This allows you to specify the description that will be used in the VB Project properties.

VB Version Number

This allows you to specify the component version number that will be used in the VB Project properties.

Default Schema to Object Collection Mapping

This allows you to select the manner in which properties and methods that reference Collections are generated.

E.g. for the following XML:

<person> <address/> <address/> <address/> </person>

where a <person> may contain many <address> elements:

Use Original Name

This option simply uses the element name from the XML Schema. E.g Person Class would have the method declaration:

AddressCol getAddress();

Append 'Col' to Name

This option appends 'Col' to the element name from the XML Schema. E.g Person Class would have the method declaration:

AddressCol getAddressCol();

Pluralize Name

This option attempts to pluralize the element name from the XML Schema using a lookup file 'pluralList.txt' that can be found in the [INSTALL DIR]\XMLDataBinder folder and can be manually extended to include your own terms. E.g The Person Class would have the method declaration:

AddressCol getAddresses();
