Recreating ArcObjects functionality in ArcPro

Hi all,


I have a load of VB.NET code that is currently utilized in ArcDesktop. The code does a range of jobs, including the use of ArcObjects. My company is contemplating transferring this code from ArcDesktop to ArcPro. I have been tasked with working out whether or not the functionality that the code currently uses from ArcObjects can be re-created in ArcPro. I am confident that, for the most part, this will be achievable. Part of what the VB code currently uses ArcObjects for is visualization and creating graphs. Would anyone be able to clarify that it is possible to re-create the core/majority of ArcObjects functionality in ArcPro and/or any functionality that is not supported can be created with some sort of VB or Python addin? I am particularly interested in any thoughts as to why transferring the VB code to ArcPro would be a bad idea over leaving it in ArcDesktop.


Thanks in advance for any advice.
