    I made my shell context menu enhancement tool all from VB6:

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]



    My current version (which I haven't released yet) includes folder dynamic popup menus (so you can say show me the contents of drive C:\ in the menu) and implements ownerdraw menu items so you can view the proper 16x16 icon's in the menu.

    I've been working on it on/off for a couple of months.

    The hardest part is trying to decyper the MS documentation is it's shit.


    Some good places to go:

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    But most of these are just reference sites with source code, etc.

    Im not taking the piss but Ive heard the 'VB for Dummies' book is rather good for those starting out. It will start you off, but you will need something else later especially when you start using OOD. (Which should be high on the list of priorities if you want to program commercially.)

    Im sure there are a few VB professionals on here so if you have any questions post em!

    In VB i made a CD brower which i lost when i did a low level format on the wrong drive and previous to that i made a couple of battle calcs for some games i play. VB is GOOD for making small dinky programs in windows compared to other programming languages however its useless for anything else

    Not entirly correct. Im running a system which comprises of 44Meg of VB created DLLs, OCXs, and EXEs. (this is a system that is 'real world' and has been deployed.)

    VB may be slower than solutions offered by other languages, but its a hell of a lot quicker to develop for.

    Yeah it obviously depends on using Windows :) Personally Im using it to provide applications like Risk Analysis (using live data connections to the markets). Obivously the spec of the machines is high, but nowa days you need a P3 1G just to run the OS :P

    Been working on a dice roller for DnD 3rd edition for a while. It's hard to include that whole first book.

    I been doing it for a couple of years since i was 14, i wanna get into web development though so i have changed over to using ASP so knowing Visual Basic helps to learn ASP alot faster as i suppose knowing C/C++ would help to learn php?

    ive done my as computing project entirely in vb and access.

    looks pretty good although i'd rather done pascal (teaches the rudimentarys of programming better).

    I program almost entirely in VB6/ASP and have started using VB.net

    In the old days of vb1.0 (!) it was very slow, very unprofessional and very frowned upon.

    The latest incarnations of VB are powerful whilst remaining relatively easy to learn and use.

    I connect to SQL databases, CSV files, fixed format files and some real wacky formatted Legacy files from an *OLD* system we have.
    so it also has the flexibility.

    I have recently completed a complete EPOS system (till and back office with comms and automatic replenishment) in VB so it's commercially viable too.

    I like it.

    VB isnt just for Windows (in that sense) - you can develop Console applications too - i have learned VB for a few years (just bits and pieces) and now i am gonna be heading of too uni for Software Engineering i am gonna have to get my head around Java and C++ and Assembler too - oh boy!!!
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    I've just finished 1st yr Comp. Sci. and we had to learn C++, i think its a good place to start since it will help web developing too, i think it also makes learning perl easier as well as php as someone mentioned before
