Has anyone downloaded and used VBE 2005 Beta. I use VBScript a lot and was wondering whether this VB programming language was any good.

Cheers

Hi,

I am currently learning visual basic in the old classic 6.0 version.

I have downloaded and installed VBE2005,and i don't like it.

So ill stick to learning in VB6,if you are thinking of learning Visual Basic,then go for it,i have been learning for about 3 weeks it is very easy to learn if you are interested in a ebook that teaches you visual basic in 23 days,send me a email,this applies to anyone.

Cheers!

Trial only release date not known.

I can guess this will eventually be the next replacement for VB.net Standard Edition.

Or may be this is an even further cutdown version of VB. So we could have VBScript VBA (although VBA is a cutdown of VB6 for MSOffice not VB.net) VB Express VB Standard VB Enterprise.

The number of iterations that MS can make up is giving me headache.

Funny I find .net easier VB6

Hmm

I wonder whether getting tied-in to a particular programming language is a good idea.

I like to think of Fortran as the Model T and compilers are still available click here

In fact, why not write a Fortran Compiler in C++, or even VBA for Office (off my rocker - no, it should be possible).

"I wonder whether getting tied-in to a particular programming language is a good idea"

What else do you suggest?

I was told i should learn visual basic (because it was the easiest) and i can start here,and go onto something like C++.

Remember that VBA is only a cut down version of VB and there is very little you can do.

I am tempted to do C++ or C# but they look so cryptic to me. I only really use VBA out of necessity for work, and VB is so much easier to read.

Especially if someone else has written it and hasn't bothered to comment their code (slap wrists/bad programming form).

Thanks for all your comments guys/gals
