Refactoring in VB6

Mon, Oct 22, 2007
I just got handed a click event with 19 pages of code. Yep, you read it right: nineteen pages! What can I say? My need for a refactoring tool that works in Visual Basic 6 became immediate. Luckily I found CodeShine through a little googling. It doesn’t do a lot, compared to Refactor! and Resharper, but the things it does are invaluable. Its functions are: Extract method, Introduce Explaining Var, Extract function, Localize module variables and Rename.
