General advice needed

Hi there guys

I have a client that recently asked me if they can get the source code for the project I am currently doing for them. It is quite a big project with code that I don't really whish to share with them. Our contract didn't specify anything in this regards, so now I'm stuck, not knowing what to do... I don't know why they want it in the first place, cause it won't make any sense to them any way, but it is still suspect...

Can I encrypt the classes I whish not to share or should I just tell them NO?

Please advice, thanks

Hi there,

If you build the classes and create dll's of thos classes.....still you can retrieve the code from those dll's using a lot of third party tools.

If I were you i would say a big...... NO.

Advice on getting up to speed on .NET
I've been coding classic ASP for a couple of years now, and have learned from a lot of mistakes over time, resulting in my being able to write very efficient ASP code today. I've gone through a few different styles of ASP coding until I've gotten something I really like that it is easy, quick and uses the least amount of server resources I can. For example, with ASP, I used to create a Connection object, a Command object and a Recordset object and then cycle through with a DO...LOOP. Now I use a Connection Object, pull a recordset into a GetRows() array and close the connection as fas...
