  • Inheritance vs. Partial (VB vs. C#)

    In my previous post regarding trying to use partial as a mechanism to extend existing functionality in a base user control, someone asked: “Does VB work differently or are you just assuming? Using the same namespace across 2 different assemblies (even) works perfectly fine?” Let's answer the first question.  It does appear that ...

  • VB'ified (Definition Of...)

    I've used this term previously and some people have asked “What exactly does VB'ified mean“? VB'ified is a term I use to describe code that has been modified to “feel” like VB.  This may sound simplistic at first glance; however, there's a lot of areas where this term apply.   So let me point out a ...

  • DiamondDash - Boulderdash Clone in VB 2005 (Revised, yet again)

    As Lutz Roeder describes it, a “.NET version of an old East German Boulderdash game”.  Using the source that he put together to build from, this version is initially a port to Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 and contains new graphics done by yours truly.  In addition to a simple port, I've taken advantage of using Partial ...

  • Inheritance vs. Partial

    Someone at a presentation I presented at recently asked, ''Instead of inheriting from a base control (TextBox), couldn't you just create a partial class and add the additional functionality?'' It's an interesting idea; however, there are several problems associated with the idea... some technical, others not so technical.  The two biggest ...

  • Shooting down more Anti-VB'isms...

    This guy states: “I just can't LIVE without being able to do things like:“ string oink = myHashTable[someKey] as string;if(oink != null) “Or“ lock(this) {  // yada yada yada} Hmmm... let's see.  He states that VB can't do the above by stating that he “just can't LIVE without being able to ...

  • (Rebuttal) Reason #458 Why Visual Basic.NET Sucks

    I can't help it... this crap is so wrong that it *MUST* be discussed.  It's been picked up my many people in the blogsphere and used as “reference“ material in forums.  It's wrong, wrong, wrong, WRONG!  You'd think after almost 5 months of being posted people would check their facts.  So since others apparently ...

  • VB 2005 Gems #1

    While working with VB 2005, I'll try to take note of the little things that help make VB stand out above other development products.  Here's one that I haven't really heard anyone speak upon and it kind of surprised me when I used it the first time.  Don't get me wrong, it was a wonderful surprise; one of those “why ...

  • VB 2005 Snippet Annoyance - A solution...

    With VB's snippet feature, every time you add a new snippet the coloring stays around until you close the file and re-open it.  This can quickly lead to a lot of visual clutter while your developing if you use snippets a lot.  And why shouldn't you leverage such a feature? Well, during the beta I asked about whether this would be ...

  • Here's your chance to laugh your *ss off at me...

    The .NET Rocks road show was here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area a couple of days ago.  After the show, they did some interviews with the local crowd and I was hanging out with no real intention of being interviewed.  Of course, that didn't work out exactly that way and I did end up having to sit in front of the mic.  It ended up ...

  • Gathering computer information using WMI

    After a ton of questions regarding the the DriveInfo examples (Determine Hard Drive Serial Numbers and Revenge of DriveInfo) asking how to determine other information such as CPU identification, motherboard serial number and BIOS serial numbers I'm updated the WMI version of the application to read this information.  Why the WMI ...
