The CEDRA Corporation released Avenue Wraps. A new publication comprised of more than 600 pages, Avenue Wraps offers detailed information describing the process of how Avenue code can be converted into Visual Basic or Visual Basic for Applications code.

When converting code, the easiest conversion work occurs when there is a direct one-to-one correspondence of the items that need to be converted. Based upon the word wraparound, Avenue Wraps offers this one-to-one correspondence. Simply by substituting the appropriate Avenue Wrap equivalent for the Avenue request, an Avenue script becomes a VB/VBA macro. More than 250 of the most popular Avenue requests are presented in Avenue Wraps. No searching through the ArcObjects Developer Help, no scratching your head as to how to convert GetFTab into the appropriate ArcObjects Property, or how to get the Legend for a Theme. Avenue Wraps has been there, done that, and is ready for you to use.

Discussing things such as:

  • general Avenue to VB/VBA syntax differences
  • Views
  • Themes
  • Tables
  • Selection Sets
  • Graphic Elements
  • Querying
  • Calculating
  • File I/O operations
  • Message Boxes
  • User-Document interaction
  • Manipulation of Feature Shapes
  • Legends
  • Classifications and application deployment,
Avenue Wraps contains numerous samples that will cut your conversion effort by more than 70 percent. Don't leave your Avenue applications behind, use Avenue Wraps and migrate your applications to ArcGIS.
