     This is an old utility I made a few years ago in VB 5. It can display the main project files in a .VBP and display the contents and a summary of what's in its code modules, color-coded.

It was designed to let any VB project be a reference for itself. To that end, it picks out any comments that appear immediately before a subroutine or function. And since its output is a RichEdit control, you can copy and paste anything it outputs into Word or some other editor for instant documentation.

While it's probably lacking a few reserved keywords and might be a little out of date, it's got a valuable core of logic to parse VB code and an algorithm to color-code VB stuff for a RichEdit control.

I welcome comments and improvements, so long as you give credit where it's due. Please vote for this code if you find it useful.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
