Default vb net standard edition good enough? "help"


I'm looking to create a small web based app that will run through a text file to validate formatting errors. Very simple. Just opens a txt file, runs through every record and creates an error file.

I have this done in vb5.

would Vb.net standard edition be powerful enough to do the same thing in?

Adam

With the little information that has been provided, I'd say yes.

You need to look into System.I/O methods in .Net. Look for TextReader, TextWriter, StreamReader, StreamWriter, the File classes, etc.

Default vb net standard good enough

Thanks for reply:

Do most programmers just re-write vb5 apps when they have to be upgraded to vb.net ? Or can you actually upgrade from vb5 to vb.net without a re-write?

Generally speaking


Adam
Thanks for your time

.Net has a conversion tool, it should be within your menu options. Now, I assume it works for VB 5(though I am not THAT confident),...I am not sure. I know the converter will attempt to convert VB 6 apps.

Now note, any conversion route is typically weak, and the developer needs to go back through the code and clean it up. Very few conversions are cut and dry, you're done. You would need to make code changes either way.

Typically, I just re-write the code. I have never used the conversion tool, so I really can't tell you how it works (or it is very useful). I have found that I am quicker when I make my own logical changes..and the converter isn't as smart as I am (LOL).

Default vb.net standard version

One more question if you do not mind. You seem very knowledabel.

Can I have vb5 and vb.net loaded on the same machine? Remember when I think it was vb 4 and vb 5 could NOT be installed on the same machine ?

Yes, .Net is completely different. Previous VB versions will coexist just fine on the same PC.
