    Apropos 'Gaining Control of the .NET ListBox'


    Hi,

    Does anybody else think this article is bad advertisement for VB.Net? If
    filling a listbox suddenly requires multi-part articles to teach, is it still
    progress?

    No flames please.

    Microsoft would call this "a better story." In fact, one of the VB devteam leads
    actually used those exact words with me, on this very topic. I totally agree though,
    that calling the extra effort required for even simple tasks "progress" fits right in
    with all the other Orwellian double-speak coming out of Redmond these days. It's sad
    when you look to Microsoft as you would a politician, and often need to invert the
    information provided to find even a shred of the truth.

    Later... Karl
