A review of the visual basic programming system

Advantagessimple, quick easy to use for novices

Disadvantagesnot object oriented

"INTRODUCTION Visual basic is a simple programming language that can be used to design and program simple to complex applications for use on the Windows operating system. I have experience of visual basic 6.0 as I have used it at college and also late in projects for University work. It is a simple programming tool because it allows you to draw components onto a drawing canvas and add programming code to them. For example you could draw a text box ..." Read review

Upgrading Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 to Microsoft Visual Basic .NET - Microsoft Press

Upgrading Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 to Microsoft Visual Basic .NET - Microsoft Press

Ideal for any project manager or developer working in Visual Basic, Upgrading Microsoft ... more

Visual Basic 6.0 to Microsoft Visual Basic.NET
delivers an admirably lucid and valuable guide to
porting legacy VB code to the new .NET framework.
This book offers some indispensable advice on
making this transition go smoothly. This text is
notable for its clear-sighted presentation style,
useful for both project managers (who must plan
when to upgrade code) and working VB developers
(who must cope with a host of new APIs and
language changes in VB.NET). The authors first
establish the reasons why Microsoft chose to break
literally millions of lines of code with the new
.NET. They explore old and new VB languages and
pay attention to features that have been dropped
in the new version. The heart of this text
examines the Visual Basic.NET Upgrade Wizard in
excellent detail, starting with a simple VB 6
project upgraded to VB.NET. As the authors
suggest, this wizard handles 95 percent of the
port to .NET for your VB code. Much of this text
explains what do about the remaining five percent
of features that don't make the cut. One standout
chapter here looks at which VB 6 systems to
upgrade first. Not every legacy system will need
to the upgraded, the authors prudently observe.
Another valuable section examines the "errors,
warnings and issues" generated by the upgrade
wizard with specific suggestions on how to
re-write code that doesn't get translated
automatically. Later chapters look at specific
areas of .NET that can "add value" to your
projects, including the advantages of ADO.NET and
Windows Forms vs the older ADO and ActiveX
standards. There's plenty of useful advice for
getting the old and new VB to interoperate, too,
notably using ActiveX, COM and COM+ controls
within .NET (a perfectly acceptable strategy).
Final reference sections list changes between VB 6
to VB.NET, highlighting which language features
are no longer supported. Sanctioned by Microsoft
Press, this title gives you the proverbial "inside
track" on upgrading VB 6 to VB.NET in an admirably
well-organised text thats filled with practical
advice. With millions of VB developers out there
facing .NET for the first time, this title
provides a worthy resource for moving old code
into the future as smoothly and as cheaply as
possible. --Richard Dragan
