  1. Re: For those interested in keeping VB.Net a first class .Net language.

    Again, perhaps it just me but your post pretty much justifies Microsoft's reluctance to release features for both languages at the same time. EntityFramework has been around for about 11 or 12 years...
  2. Re: For those interested in keeping VB.Net a first class .Net language.

    Personally it doesn't look like they have plans to drop VB.Net but rather they aren't making sure features are released on both VB.Net and C# simultaneously, the features will be there for VB but it...

  5. Re: How to remove all extra spaces, blank lines, and CrLfs in JavaScript code?

    Have you considered incorporating something like https://babeljs.io into your pipeline? It can handle transpiling between versions for you and it can also cope with minification etc. as well.

  14. VS 2019 Re: Precision of Double variables for positive integers

    In fact

    Sub Main(args As String())

    Dim d1 As Double = 10 ^ 250
    Dim d2 As Double = (10 ^ 250) + 1

    Console.WriteLine(d1 = d2)
    End Sub
  15. VS 2019 Re: Precision of Double variables for positive integers

    A Long data type will store exact numbers, a Double gets the increase in size by reducing precision - numbers may not be exact.

    Re: MVVM and where stuff goes.

    The ViewModel is really only the View Logic, it shouldn't contain any business logic at all. The ViewModel's role is really to simplify how the View interacts with the user and the Model.

  18. Re: StringBuilder vs Concatenation

    In Release mode both the compiler and the runtime are a lot more aggressive when it comes to optimisations, as a general rule I would always aim to write clear code before worrying about performance...
  19. Re: StringBuilder vs Concatenation

    The trick is to code appropriately and know what is available, concatenation makes for clearer and more obvious code so I would personally use it in preference to StringBuilder. If however I was...
  20. Re: StringBuilder vs Concatenation

    One thing to be careful of is what type of application you are writing, if you are mainly dealing with desktop apps then the overheads of concatenation are probably not worth the effort of worrying...

    Re: Interacting with a Web Browser

    If the information is behind a paywall does the site allow scrapping of HTML in their T&Cs? If not do they provide an API to use instead to obtain this information?
