Just curious how most other people are doing figuring out VB.NET. I don't
even recall a learning curve to VB but I seem to be having a lot of trouble
even doing simple stuff in VB.NET.

For example, I created a UserControl and added a paint event. It took me a
while to figure out how to even draw a simple line. I came up with the
Public Sub UserControl1_Paint(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
System.WinForms.PaintEventArgs) Handles UserControl1.Paint
Dim p As New Pen(system.Drawing.Color.Blue)
e.Graphics.DrawLine(p, 0, 0, 50, 50)
End Sub

Then I found out this wasn't even being called. I found an OnPaint event and
that does get called but then what is the UserControl1_Paint event for?

Finding stuff in the help when you don't already know the class you want
help on is next to impossible. Is anyone else having these sort of problems
or is it just me?
