  1. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    I really wish I didn't have move to the web but at this point it seems inevitable, at least for us. People are asking for things that require too much gymnastics to implement in a desktop...
  2. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Desktop is not dead dead. I know that. Certain types of applications can only work as desktop applications but we are primarily in line of business applications and it just seems that there is no...
  3. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    I'll still be around here. I will still be using .Net and Visual Studio after all, but I just won't be using VB anymore, nor will I be writing desktop applications.
  4. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Ok folks. Some recent developments stopped me in my tracks and I had to do a lot of thinking. As fun and interesting as all this was, the aforementioned recent developments have forced me to realize...

  7. Re: [RESOLVED] Directly call the classes in the .NET base lib (mscorlib.dll) in VB6

    Oh I wasn't addressing the problem of overloads in particular.
  8. Re: [RESOLVED] Directly call the classes in the .NET base lib (mscorlib.dll) in VB6

    Back when I just started with .Net I used to use a program called .Net Reflector that could decompile .Net DLLs and show you all it's internals including public classes. At the time it was the most...
  9. Re: [RESOLVED] Directly call the classes in the .NET base lib (mscorlib.dll) in VB6

    Oh....Append_3, that's why it didn't work for me. I was trying to use Append. Good to know.
  10. Re: [RESOLVED] Directly call the classes in the .NET base lib (mscorlib.dll) in VB6

    Very interesting. I hadn't thought about trying this. I assumed OP did and it didn't work.

    However, this doesn't seem to work for all classes. For example it doesn't work for the StringBuilder but...
  11. Re: [RESOLVED] Directly call the classes in the .NET base lib (mscorlib.dll) in VB6

    There is no straight forward way to do this that I'm aware of. .Net and COM are fundamentally incompatible. This is why COM Interop was created. It might be possible to achieve something like this by...

    Well maybe it's a personal flaw but I really cannot believe that people that can do stuff like this can come from places like this.

  14. Re: Mapping between C# and VB6 (C# to VB6)

    They have an implementation of delegates in there. At a glance it looks like they are using the raw IUnknown interface of some kind of COM object to implement delegates. Not sure how that is meant to...

  16. Re: Mapping between C# and VB6 (C# to VB6)

    You could implement an Int64 type relatively easy if you wanted in VB6. The problem is that you cannot override operators in VB6 so you won't be able to use it like built-in primitives like Longs and...

  23. Re: Mapping between C# and VB6 (C# to VB6)

    (1) Use Long in VB6. IntPtr is a .Net data type that is used to represent pointers. It is a 64 bit value in a 64 bit process and it's 32 bits when running in a 32 bit process.

    (2) A delegate is...
  24. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Didn't really have time to go through all the recent discussion since my last post but I did quickly catch this:-

    Anyways. See you...

    Oh this is a must. I want to be as fair as possible with VB6.



    It's will probably be simpler than that. I may not even use a database engine. Haven't exactly decided yet. The idea I currently...

    VS 2019 Re: Reflection simple question

    Would it suffice if you had the ability to list all the properties of an object at runtime? I'm not exactly sure of how you're implementing what you're describing. Like what does your actual code...

    You just inspired me to go learn Python. I'll try to make some time this year for it. Lucky for me, it is one of the languages supported by Visual Studio 2019 so at least I can start in a familiar...
  34. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    To be honest, I've actually wanted to do something like this for a long time but not for demonstrating to other people but mainly to gauge if it is really as bad as it feels whenever I go back and do...

    Wow...you guys have been such busy bees.

  38. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    As for EF, I had a very brief experience with it and the problem I ran into was the abstraction level being too high. It was so high to the point that some simple tasks were very difficult to...
  39. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    I'm going to have to disagree here. I have a very strong preference for more compact code. There's nothing I hate more that reading some verbose monster I wrote 6 years ago and not understanding what...
