Thread: VB.Net

    VB.Net


    I'll start a huge VB6 development, I'm hearing some rumors about VB.NET, and
    they sound like if I develop in VB6 now, I cannot migrate it to VB.Net in
    the future. Is it true?

    By the way, what's the advantages of this new VB version?

    Thanks

    "Cannot" is a big word. It could be very difficult depending on what
    you're doing. There is a lot of discussion on this issue in the
    "vb.vb7" group here.

    VB.Net is enough different from all previous versions of MS Basic that
    many of us refer to at as "Visual Fred". It looks familiar to Basic
    programmers, but it is substantially different in many ways.

    There are a number of advantages, particularly if you're designing for
    web services. Unfortunately there are enough disadvantages I haven't
    been excited enough to learn details of the advantages. Again, I
    refer you to the "vb.vb7" group.

    Language Stability is a *feature* I wish VB had!

    Of all the ports I've herd people do through the years, I have going to say
    that porting VB 6 to VB 7 (while not a snap) is possible. If you do it will
    depend on how much time your willing to invest.
