    Differences between VB6 and .NET (VB.NET)

    I am trying to work with VB.NET and there have obviously been some drastic changes in the routine functions that made things a lot simpler. For example, you appear to no longer be able to move the pointer at a break point to previous code to have it re-execute from that line. Also, what the heck happened to the F8 key function? And can anyone tell me the hot keys to pull up the debug window (I think it is called console)

    Yes, things have greatly changed.

    I suggest getting a book describes upgrading from VB to VB .NOT.
    I'm in the midst if readin gthe one from MSFT Press.
    Apress also has such a book.

    Neither book answers all questions, but they do give you a good overview of the (drastic) differences between VB anb VB .NOT.

    Getting books is really important for .NET, IMHO, and I see similar comments voiced elsewhere, the online HELP for VB .NET is awful, especially the (dis)organization.

    If you need to find info on a topic for which you know little, or nothing, well, ...!

    Overall, VB .NET is a lot harder to use than VB, but it is oh so much cleaner.
    Bye, bye to DLL Hell!
