This thread is going to be devoted to giving helpful hints about VB.NET, not in the code sense, but in a general sense. I would like to get a long list going, but to avoid this from being a runaway thread, it will be locked. If you would like to submit something, please PM me. I will review your submission and if it fits the thread, I will post it here. People who submit valid tips will be given credit for the submission.
This is more of a tip of the day type thread. So please no CODE examples like "how to cancel a keypress", that is a topic for its own thread (which there are many of already). What I am looking for is more tips and tricks for the IDE, the framework, the help, etc....
All tips currently are from VS.NET 2003, but most (if not all) still apply in both 2002, and 2005 version of Visual Studio.NET
