VB vs C# #2

Just getting started with ASP.NET and noticing some code samples are using C# instead of VB.

Which do most people use?

I'd rather learn the most commonly used l Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} anguage.

Professional developers more often than not write in C#. VB'ers are a more laid back group. A lot of people learn both, as they're very similar.

 BTW, if you want to translate a chunk of code from one language to the other, here's a great site:

VB is better when you are getting started  -once you are working with more complex aspects them C# is better.

C# is advantage to a developers who came from Java or C++ because the syntax is pretty much the same,  but basically C# and VB.NET are first-class programming languages that are based on the Microsoft .NET Framework, and they are equally powerful. Both Visual Basic .NET and Visual C# .NET use the common language runtime. There are almost no performance issues between Visual Basic .NET and Visual C# .NET. Visual C# .NET may have a few more "power" features such as handling unmanaged code, and Visual Basic ..NET may be skewed a little toward ease of use by providing features such as late binding..So in terms of What language to use then i would suggest you to choose the language that you are comfortable with.. If you prefer VB then go for it.. but it would be better if you will start leaning C# as well.. :)

VB.NET vs C# #2
Hello,I have been working with Visual Studio 2005 and I use mostly VB.NET.Sometimes I notice that a few things that were possible with C# were not possible with VB.NET.Now I am starting to use VS 2008 and ASP.NET 3.5. Should I use C# instead of VB.NET?Could someone tell me the reasons to choose one or the other?Thanks,Miguel  Hi Miguel, Most of the things are same in VB.NET and C# functionality wise since they both compile to IL, which is same for both the languages.

C# vs VB.net #2
Hi, I'm new to .net and I was wondering if anyone could enlighten me on the pros and cons of C# and VB. Based on the market, are you finding a bigger demand for C# skills or VB skills. I'm a data warehouse developer (sql server) and when dealing with data, is there a language that's best suitable? Would you find more support for one language versus the other? Also, is there a smaller learning curve for one? Thanks for any feedback that you have. I'm about to dive headfirst into .net and don't know which one I should go with. I've always been around people that used VB, and...

True OOPS c#.net vs vb.net
Hi, Can i get the comparison between c#.net vs vb.net on the basis of supported object oriented feature. Which one supports more features of OOPS. They both support the same features since they are both based off the same IL code.  You will see no difference between the two.  Hope this helps.P.S.  By using the term "C#.NET" is a dead give away that you are new to the language.  Because C#.NET is a redundant term since C# is only available for the .NET Framework. View My Blog Download My URL Rewriter and Reverse ProxyOnly $9.95/month, ASP.NET, 2GB & SQL 2005 ...

use VB.NET and C#.NET code in the same C#.NET project
All-- Here is a sample that is "off the beaten path", (at least for me). Is it possible, in an ASP.NET application, using the code-behind page building technique, to have both pages written in VB.NET and pages written C#.NET?At http://www.WebLogicArts.com/DemoList.aspx there is a sample that shows that, (contrary to popular belief), it IS possible to mix ASP.NET pages built with C#.NET with ASP.NET pages built with VB.NET in the same VS.NET 2003 project. Note that this is just a "fun" sample to see if it can be done and I do not recommend this practice as a "standard" way of develo...

Difference between now C# is compiled vs. VB.net in VS?
Can anyone tell me the difference between now C# is compiled vs. VB.net in VS? I was given a question of this mature in recent interview and could not answer it, nor could I find anything on the net. The question was more complex than that, I just can't remember in detail. It also contained something regarding "Runtime Module". From what I know, the compiler converts the either code into a "intermediate" language that is then able to communicate with the underlying OS, right? Thanks, EJMSoftware engineering is a team sport.

VB.NET vs. C#.NET Behavior of Visual Studio
I'm transitioning from coding in VB to coding in C#. Maybe I have something set wrong, but a behavioral difference is driving me bananas. When I edit a VB source file, the two drop-downs at the top of the edit view are Class Name and Method Name, and it makes it easy to add a new event handler for any of the controls on the page. Choose which one on the left, pick your event on the right, and VS inserts an empty, properly formatted subroutine. In C# mode, however, those two drop-downs are labeled Types and Members, and there doesn't appear to be a way to tell it to create the empty framew...
