  1. Re: Is the VB6 community capable to grab the bull by its horns?

    VSCode - https://github.com/microsoft/vscode - core IDE, core language support for VB etc

    Re: Should i learn VB6?

    Hard to say without knowing exactly what you are meaning, if you are simply talking about using a class to access an array then it is possible that the performance would be very similar. If you are...

    Re: Should i learn VB6?

    Generalisations are not a good idea, choosing the correct tool for the job is a good idea.

    Re: Should i learn VB6?

    Collections are generally easier than arrays, performance is often comparable unless you are dealing with very large amounts of data. Resizing arrays however can be a lot slower than adding to a list...

    That isn't what I would call a big disadvantage, I don't think I have ever used a negative index. It isn't exactly difficult to convert a negative index into an offset either.

    The potential problem then is that in another decade things will have moved on even further, you run the risk of potentially always playing catch-up with whatever is the new requirements.

  11. Re: Is the VB6 community capable to grab the bull by its horns?

    Which is a shock, these threads trying to develop a new VB6 never normally devolve into petty bickering and everyone having different priorities and ideas that can't be reconciled. :D

  33. Re: VS 2019 - System.IO.IOException - Started out of no where
