  • Creating Smart Application Layouts with Windows Forms 2.0

    According to Brad Abrams, the Windows Forms documentation team published a new whitepaper about how to create a great layout using the new features of the WinForms in .NET 2.0... meaning you don't have to create the same old “grey” applications everyone has come to know and love. ;-) I've read through it and it's got some great ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 and C#"

    A couple of weeks ago, I started consciously paying attention to people in Microsoft presentations mention the various languages of .NET.  I noticed a couple of things: C++ is extremely rare in being mentioned. J# is usually mentioned in jest... but still very rarely. C# is usually mentioned primarily with VB mentioned secondarily. On ...

  • Now for a "good" article discussing a comparison between .NET languages...

    After the last article I pointed out, it's refreshing to see this... VB vs. C# MSIL Code Generation: Are the results equal? He discusses differences in the CIL created by VB and C#.  He attempts to offer some insight as to why the difference exists.  I'm not going to say the article is complete in the dissection of the subject.  ...

  • I know I shouldn't let this sort of thing bother me...

    ...but it does. It's crap like this that just further influences peoples negative view of a language they know nothing about.  I'm all for freedom of speech/expression.  I strongly believe people are entitled to their opinion.  However, if this opinion is based on false information, I feel it is the responsibility of others to ...

  • I guess I just don't get it...

    I know I'm setting myself up for a beating... but I just don't get it.  How is it that people still have such a hard time accepting the Microsoft.VisualBasic assembly as being part of the .NET Framework?  Why is it that they always state that it's there only for the sake of compatibility or legacy?  There are people who use VB.NET ...

  • Enigma Machine...

    I've seen a few people mention a “really cool example” that emulates the Enigma machine from WWII.  Now, I don't want to detract the fact that it is somewhat cool that someone worked on putting this together, but I swear that it's getting a lot of publicity simply because it's written in C#.  I remember seeing a sample a ...
