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

    Funny enough I tried to turn the thread a little positive by focusing on things I like about my language, with no mention of comparison to another language, even specifically stating that it had...
  2. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    @ Dreammanor all I can reply to your post is "lol"... I can't take you seriously anymore.. sorry



    That is the reason I have to bow out of any responses to dreammannor... he is a very very angry...

    No interest in implementing this in WPF. If my winforms knowledge was limited, my WPF is even more limited.

    However, when you list things like

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

    I meant .NET knowledge, although one post with a few lines of code also does not portray any real knowledge.




    I would agree with the first part, however you do the same. You constantly say...

    Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    I think the biggest thing is that we have enough time from when this ends until the next one to do an actual retrospective to find out what actually worked vs didn't. I would imagine a lot of people...

    Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    I'm not sure anyone can actually answer any of that. Hopefully governments and people are learning from this pandemic and next time there is faster action.

    If people did the whole social...
  7. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Absolutely! I stated that I hate the VB format (both VB6 and .NET and VBA, etc) and that it is personal preference. I didn't say there was anything wrong with someone else liking it.

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

    I think they're more pointing out that, from you, it's constant rudeness. You need look no further than the coronavirus thread for a ton of examples.

    You stick your nose up at everyone without...

    Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    The question no one can answer at this point, is whether the fatality rate is only 0.6% because everything got locked down with social distancing and masks. I like to err on the side of caution, but...

    Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    I have heard that too and it is one of the reasons my son is still out of school. He has allergies and his body already overreacts to food.. not sure what covid would do.

    Haven't actually looked...
  13. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    I just did it because it was Schmidt did it in his example (unless I misunderstand the VB6 code). Normally I would use a random seed.

    This is not meant to be well-written code lol.. I basically...
  14. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    I am not a graphics guy, nor am I a winforms guy, nor am I a math guy, but here is a quick thing I pieced together that seems to do the same thing as yours. Like you, I used a 3rd party library which...

    Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    That is why most people don't go by covid deaths. They go be overall increase in deaths vs previous years:

    Also, even if you think...

    Isn't it also written in C#/ASP.NET? Best of both worlds!
  17. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Not sure that is worth your time or effort unless you want to do it for your own benefit (or I suppose to save a lot of typing the next time this subject comes up).

    Those still in VB6 are there...
  18. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Honestly I think you and Niya just crossed wires then. Looking at your quote right there, it doesn't seem subjective. It seems again like you're stating exactly what you quoted



    If I read that,...
  19. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    But that's the thing. .NET has no obvious advantages over VB6 to you. Again, saying .NET has no obvious advantages over VB6 to everyone as your statement implied, is another abolute and cannot be...
  20. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Those familiar with WPF would have a much higher development efficiency with it than VB6. Just as those familiar with VB6 would have much higher development efficiency with VB6 than WPF.

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

    I'm gonna come up with an even crazier idea... posting all the content in 1 post!

    Don't mind me today.. I am really trying to avoid work.
  24. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    It was a joke. But also, why bother posting before you have the content for your post? There is a preview for formatting and stuff, but maybe I'm thinking too much into this.. it is Chit Chat...
  25. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    I do have to admit.. that is pretty damn simple code!
  26. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding the previous discussion, or maybe you are.. not sure.

    From what I saw of the previous discussion, I posted LINQ statements saying how I like them in C#.

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

    We also ran into issues initially with not specifically LINQ, but Entity Framework. By default it creates proxy objects when querying data.

    We were then trying to cache the data in memcache....
  28. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    That's a ridiculous statement to make; it is nonsense in your particular use case, maybe. You also say "compactness" -- but it isn't about compactness, it is about the tradeoff of speed vs...

    Don't they have some new diet coke that has come out with more caffiene?.. Yeah it's called Diet Coke XTRA: https://www.dietcoke.ca/en/xtra/infused-blackberry/
  30. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    I suppose that is another thing I like (and hate) about .NET -- entity framework.

    I don't need to create my database or tables if I don't want to. I can easily just create my classes

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

    Or alternatively (I prefer this format).

    IIRC, the first Roller Coaster Tycoon was written entirely in assembly. Definitely a feat.

    With the obtuse comment I mean your line



    They came from a DB, but saying I should just be filtering on the DB is being obtuse, since I gave examples where it is cleaner and faster to not use...
  34. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Again, being intentionally obtuse. I already gave examples where I queried the data from the database and stored it in my own list, dictionary, whatever. I can now easily use LINQ to search and...
  35. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Ah so in-memory databases are built in to the framework and don't required any extra dependencies? Gotcha. Thanks for clearing that up.

    Seriously. You're being intentionally obtuse and I'm not...
  36. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Because that is another layer of abstraction that isn't needed and I don't need to add that to do it how I want to do it.

    Again, if that works for you, great. I see no need to add another layer.
  37. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    Lots of times having data in memory is faster and more practical.

    Quick basic example: hangman. You have a list of letters the user has chosen. I can easily do chosenLetters.Any(letter => letter...

    This is Chit Chat and posts go all over the place. Read each individual post to see their intent, not the title of the thread.
  39. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    I've updated my example to make it a little more obvious what the code does. Reading it out right now it is pretty simple and I find your convoluted example rather... interesting. Reading it from...
  40. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    I'm going to treat this more as a "What do I like about C#" vs "C# VS VB" or anything... these are just some things I like about C#.
