Visual C++ & Visual Basic

Post icon  Posted 17 January 2008 - 04:50 AM

Hi.I know a little bit of visual C++ and nothing about VB.
I was just wondering if the 2 languages have the same work but in different codes!?
Is it enough to know Visual C++ without knowing VB as a programmer?

Thx.

It really depends on which version of Visual Basic you use.

For instance if you use VB5 or VB6, you will notice that most of the object oriented stuff you can do with C++ just isn't available in Visual Basic.

However, if you use VB.net then most of it will be there, but there is no reason to migrate from C++ to VB.net, you would be much better off migrating to C#.net which has all the same features (and more) as VB.net, and the same syntax, and a lot of the same operators as you are used to in C++

So there, is no reason for you to learn VB5 or VB6 IMHO, but if you ever have to work on someone else's project (the horror) then it may be useful.

So if you want to learn something else (for application development) I would suggest C#.net or Java.

thx for the reply i really appreciate it:).

Like any student i have some fear what's better to learn and usefull in work that's why i was asking.

I'll continue my C++ and SQL books and learn C#. It's enough I think:D.

Thanks again
