Darned. Now I need to learn VB 6.0 because the project that is assigned to me is done by another programmer with VB 6.0.
Everything seems to be weird for me in VB. Variable declaration, function calling, the overall syntax is so weird. The language is bad, it doesn’t teach you good practice in programming. Especially OOP design, though it is quite easy understanding the concept of event handling programming.
I also hate how VB limitate on how many line continutations you can use. Line continuation in VB is much rather like breaking a long statement to a new line. I don’t have any problem at all with this in Java, since you’ll just need to hit the return key and there is no limitation on how many return key you can use.
And the worst of all, all the docs seems to be redirected to VB.NET nowadays since Microsoft has stop support for VB6 😦
