    Eeeewww, I see what you mean, that web site is positively putrid, it almost
    made me throw up.
     

    Hmm, what about their fax number? "886-3-9591550" is this real? Maybe this
    needs to be distributed just the same as they do to peopls email addresses.
    Is it possible to extract their email address from their contact page?
     

    They look really crap anyway, don't they?

    Nick.

    It seems you are not enabling Option Strict. Enable it in the project

    I do get spammed by them as well. But aren't we giving them extra exposure
    by starting a thread about their 'company'?

    Not that any developer with a grain of common sense would actually buy from
    them anyway, but hey.

    Their website s a big one. Just plain text would be a great improvement.

    Why does everyone think that writing in C# is so much "faster" than VB.NET?

    "Oh thats in C#, must be faster."

    This isn't the days of VB6 vs C++...

    IDL... thats all I have to say.

    It's just new language excitment, it will level out after a while. Everyone
    (almost everyone) knows that C# and VB are almost equivelent in terms of RAD
    development.

    Agreed

    what jacka$$ thought case sensitivity was a good idea?

    Lets thing about this... when in your life would you ever name one variable

    Customer

    and the other

    customer

    and have them mean two different things?

    its just dumb... dumb dumb dumb...

    I have never written in VB and personally don't like it.
    Anyway, I just want to answer your qestion fot the case sensitivity.
    Some times is useful to have Customer and customer which means the same but
    are to different variables. I don't want to give you an example because it
    will be in c# in you might say "Yes, but in VB this will be an error" or
    something like that.
    However, I believe that when the language is case sensitive it makes the
    code writen event form differnet programmers to look alike, which makes the
    code more clear and easy to read.

    In the VB examples I have seen in the same method one variables ones written
    *Index* and then *index* and then INDEX I won't be surprise if I see inDex.
    And this distract me.

    If VB has any advantages infront of the other languages it is not case
    insensitivity.

    Sounds like bad programming practice to use Customer and customer as two
    different variables.

    The main reason for case sensitivity in C, was to define a structure in
    captials, then declare a variable, with the same name...

    HWND hWnd;

    if this was VB, you'd simply use [ and ]

    Dim [hWnd] As hWnd

    You don't have to have compiled and run your own program to know the syntax.

    An example of where case-sensitivity is useful is using Pascal naming for
    public members, and camel naming for private:

    Code:
    public SomeClass MyVariable
    {
    get
    {
    return myVariable;
    }
    set
    {
    myVariable = value;
    }
    }
    
    private SomeClass myVariable;
    This helps avoid those unreadable underscores people seem to like so much.
    What would you choose as the name of the equivalent vb private member?

    When you declare a variable in Visual Studio, it doesn't matter what
    case you use later, as Visual Studio will change it to match the case
    used when it is declared. Which VB examples are you referring to?

    Dim myVariaBLE as string

    MyVariable = "some stuff"
    '-- will be automatically changed to:
    myVariaBLE = "some stuff"

    No. No. No. Give us an example.

    When using an IDE for development like VS .NET, all occurances of a
    variable's name will be formatted the same way.
     

    Use an IDE.
     

    Case insensitivity + powerful IDE are a core advantage of VB .NET.

    In VB you can use "m_" as a prefix for private variables. This will IMHO
    increase legibility
     

    \\\
    Public Class Foo
    Private m_Bar As FooBar

    Public Property Bar() As FooBar
    Get
    Return m_Bar
    End Get
    Set(ByVal Value As FooBar)
    m_Bar = Value
    End Set
    End Property
    End Class
    ///
