Hi Jonathan,

I mainly develop custom drawn controls in VB and use the API rather than VB
in most of the drawing routines and use pointers for sorting strings and
objects for some extra speed. What are the main areas in C++ that are
quicker than in VB as they both use the same compiler and why. Also is an
API function in C++ likely any quicker than in VB. I could see strings being
a bit faster if not explicitly converted from a BStr early on.

TIA
Neal
