it is very different. For instance, no control arrays, completely different code structure (more C-like) more API's are incorporated in built-in functions, lots of syntax and features removed/added. This is all so that a single module can compile both VB and VC++ and various other microsoft flavors of coding all under the .NET standard.

how does visual basic 6.0 compare to visual basic 4.0? is it the same layout with mostly the same features? i know vb6 has activeX and vb4 doesn't, but past that is it about the same thing? and does vb6 contain the option to put a webbrowser screen in it? thanks for you help

Well, the differences aren't as major, but I know that none of my VB6 code would work in VB4. There's just too many functions and features added into VB6 that going retro to 4 would be a pain.

/me looks aruond...

Im learning C# it seems pretty power full
One of the most intresting things I've learned so far is for example...

You can decalre a variable but you can make it sort of like a function...

[The is a DOS terminal program....]

Public MyLilInt as Integer
{
Get {
Return this.MyLilInt
}
Set {
System.Console.WriteLine("uh oh, MyLilInt changed into {0}!!!" this.MyLilInt);
}
}

When something asks wut MyLilInt is such as you were doing an if statement it would return the value of MyLilInt (like it normally would in vb6 or wutever) but if someone dod something like MyLilInt = 4 then the Dos Terminal would print out a line saying ih oh, MyLilInt changed into 4!!!

I recomend getting a book to learn doesnt matter which .Net language you learn Microsucks made it so you can have it automatically convert it into another .net language.... (Vb looks harder so I went for C)

ya, You need to buy Visual Studio's .NET

But I have a copy of all 7cds from Kazaa, even though UGN does not support such activites , it is possible.

Its an expesnive set of cd's
But its worth A) the money or B) the wait
