Difference between VB6 and VB.Net

Posted 27 January 2008 - 10:10 PM

Ok... I don't have much experience with visual basic... I'm wondering this....

What's the difference between Visual Basic and Visual Basic .NET??

The .NET uses the .net framework? or what? Is it like C and C++...?

Classic VB (VB6 and older) has no OO capabilities, its not very (if at all) robust, not very powerful and, in my opinion, a dieing language. VB.Net is an OO language, it uses the .Net Framework, just like C#, it is much more powerful and robust, and, once again, in my opinion an up and coming language. :)

Here is a good article Comparing VB6 to VB.Net that can say it better than I :)

I dont think there is much of a diff b/w VB 6.0 and VB Net, Coding are almost the same, Only thing is that you should follow the OO Concept - Use Object for each and everything you create. Say for Form there will be an object and with the object the form can be called. eg: Dim objFrmMain as New frmMain; objFrmMain.Whatever
Similar things can be done using VB 6.0; But only thing is that there is'nt any thin like constructor / destructor. But it does'nt mean that VB 6.0 is'nt good. If we are doing pgming with correct techniques, VB 6.0 will also a powerful tool.

No.
C/C++ Compilers convert C/C++ code into the target processor's machine language. The resultant executable file would hence work only on that processor architecture (or similar ones). To port the program for another OS or processor, you would have to compile the same source code with the appropriate compiler that converts C/C++ code into the native processor machine code.

.NET (and even Java) Compilers convert the source code into byte-code (AKA pseudo-code) format which by itself cannot be understood by any processor.
But another layer is written for each OS/machine which is capable of translating the byte-code into native processor instructions. Hence, theoretically, code written in .NET can work on any platform.

The Mono Project is currently working on creating such an intermediate layer on Linux based systems.
