    Re: The US fragile democracy Exposed

    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.

    The site itself is down right now but go spend an hour there and...

    I'm 100% convinced dilettante is trolling you guys for a good laugh. There is no way an intelligent person could actually believe this lmao.
  3. 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...

    The American Empire is doomed. Oh well. It was a good run.
  5. 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...

  12. 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...

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



    This is way too verbose compared to what Peter posted.

    Anyways. See you...

    Very busy at the moment with stuff more important than winning an argument online. But I will do as I said I'll do. Just cant focus on that at this moment. Don't worry. We will get into it when I...

    Ok I figured out the video recording stuff. It's actually a whole lot easier than I thought it would be. Here's my test run of recording and uploading.

    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...

    This is a very interesting suggestion but it's unsuitable for 2 reasons. The less important reason is that while I do have a lot of experience with graphics programming both going all the way back to...

    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...
  23. 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.

    After coming back from the job site last night I decided to take a small break. A break from VBForums, a break from programming. I ate, watched some TV...

    Whoa you guys have been busy. Currently on a job site right now setting up a client's new business. I'll see if I can respond to some of these when I get home.
  26. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    That's good to hear. I've always had every intention of revisiting EF one day. I recognized it's potential the first time I used it. I really love the concept of ORM. I've always hated the amount of...
  27. 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...
  28. 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...

    I think the problem with LINQ is that it's one of those technologies where you can easily get carried away and use it for things you shouldn't. I love LINQ and I have found it extremely useful almost...

    Even assembly itself is a thin abstraction around machine code. Some assemblers even allow certain high level constructs like IF THEN statements.

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

    See what you're not getting Olaf is that these LINQ features are baked into the foundation of .Net itself. It's not just a library that you import. You can basically use LINQ anywhere at any time on...
  34. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Oh I understand perfectly. You're advocating for dumping that external data in a lightweight database engine and use that to perform querying and filtering. What we are saying is that we don't have...
  35. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Actually this is a more accurate rendition of the non-LINQ method:-

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

    Don't you think it's more convenient to just use normal collections and arrays. I mean look how simple this is:-

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

    This is a good point but the thing is if a simple list, array or collection would do then why should we be forced to deserialize the data into something else just to be able to query it. This is the...

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

    We don't use LINQ for it's performance. We use it for it's convenience. It's a readily available querying infrastructure that's baked directly into the Framework and is even supported directly by the...
  40. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    I think the point he is making is that LINQ makes it unnecessary to depend on the backend implementation. Basically he is talking about a design philosophy called separation of concerns. LINQ would...
