I've heard a lot of whining about VS2008 here, but I'm fairly impressed by a few things that have been added. For one, Intellisense is working a lot better for me than in any previous version. It often seems to anticipate my needs, settling on an item in the list that is exactly what I was going to look for. I noticed this particularly while using the Convert function to switch between numerical record types and form text box values. It seems to check the source and target types in advance, then position the selector in the right place in the list to find the exact conversion required. Nice! Big Grin | :-D

A second feature that I like is the appearance of alignment lines on the Design sheet when moving form elements around trying to line them up nicely with other objects on the page. I didn't use 2005 at all, or 2003 very much, so I'm not sure when this appeared. But it sure saves me a lot of tedious switching back and forth among page element properties to find the exact coordinates of each to make everything line up. Very nice! Big Grin | :-D

Of course, this wouldn't be a proper Roger post if I didn't include a dumb question, so here it is:

When is it preferable to use a String class, rather than a simple string type for text data? If it makes a difference that I'm using SQL Server for storage, rather than a text file, I'd like to know about it. If not, is there any advantage in using one over the other?

On reflection (not a pun, really!), there's another question that occurs to me. There used to be a huge problem with integer types when changing DBMSs (SQL Server, Access, MySQL, etc) and languages. The VB integer was not the same as the C++ integer, and Access assumed a default type different from what SQL Server expected to handle. With the introduction of the CLR, has this issue been resolved? If I write all my GUI stuff using Int16 types, will I have to rewrite it all or convert it to store the data in SQL Server or Access?

On that note, I'll go back to coding... Big Grin | :-D
