May be I'm wrong, but I feel you are overreacting about "history lesson", saying as if it's something bad. What's wrong with lessons? As you probably know this history better then I do (mainly because I never allowed myself to play with the idea of accepting the opportunity to work with VB), you can always tell us something more interesting and useful than I could. And correct me if I'm wrong. I've noticed a long time ago that reading your posts can be really useful; as that can give a chance to learn something, and I'm trying not to miss a lesson, even if I think I know things the best way — but I always can be mistaken, like probably all of us. Perhaps it's good to remember that if I reply to your post, it does not mean that I always address personally to you. Everyone can read our conversation.
Thank you for interesting discussion. Will talk to you later.
I hope we are good. And we are doing basically the same thing on this site for this community. As to the criticism and possible negative estimates or votes, they are normal, absolutely unavoidable in any truly creative environment, as well as our mistakes, and they can be and should be handled in productive and constructive ways.
No, we're good. If I was pissed at you, I'd just ignore you.

Sorry if I'm jumping in here but I thought the conversation was interesting, I have worked with diehards of both language conventions. Both had valid reasons for their preferred environment.
But if I may, as a programmer that started writing software using Clipper (way back when, but late in life mid 40's and now nearing retirement) then progressed to VB4-6 and now VB.Net may I suggest that VB was for me an easier language to learn, and more importantly correct me if I'm wrong. One can create a working application very quickly using Visual Basic.
It's been a long time since I have to anything to do in C mainly because the company I work for uses Visual Basic as it's preferred programming environment.
I fully agree; even if I knew a way to determine something like that, I'd probably go for the functional test anyway. With external dependencies involved, I prefer to eat the pudding, rather than to look for the boxes.
Shouldn't be hard to figure out what to put in the Up/Down Button click handlers. You'll probably also handle the MouseDown/MouseUp events on those if the user wants to change the numbers without clicking for each increment.
Then the UserControl just exposes the time as a property. The gettor just puts a datetime object together based on the values in the textboxes. The settor does the opposite.
Yes, it is possible to use the OLE DB provider for the Microsoft Office 12.0 Access Database Engine for both 2003 and 2007 versions of Access, although it is not possible to use the Jet 4.0 OLE DB engine for Access 2007 databases.
Hope this helps

I am sick and tired of the relentless bagging of the VB language by other languages. I hear it in your comments vber’s, well I know I’m writing in vb but?
You’re given up demanding VB code examples be given and submitting to the blogs hate messages, VB is dead. Stop being brainwash by other languages that we are inferior. The other languages have come to VB land not us to theirs, those who deny us the vb code samples are other language leaders.
The .net engine is designed to incorporate several languages into VB land not the other way round. The VB team has done a great job and we are better.
Squiggly brackets is like the days when man ate with his hands, come on we have spoons and forks, catch up already.
Our VB King was the trailblazer that made the brand the best in the world and while you other languages gasp and you feel your blood pressure spiral, that’s how I feel every time I see negative comments about my language.
But lets have a look at the success of the VB Hive since the integration, over ten years ago our VB King shook a tablet at us and told us that this was the future, but what happen since our king let other languages leaders to rule our code world! We have been scrabbling to keep up with everyone else.
Under the C# watch we have miss major events, oh I don’t know like, mobile phones, the tablet just to name a major few.
VB land under the King has change from leaders to followers under the C# leaders.
VB land has grown to accommodate other languages and they have shaken their code bible at us for too long, telling us that they will dominate us to their language and beliefs.
Be proud vber’s we are the indigenous coders and are the westernized world and not let third world languages make us feel bad to admit we are Vber’s
