Visual Basic .NET

Microsoft Visual Basic .NET is a tool to develop and build applications that move on the .NET Framework system, using BASIC language. Using this tool, programmers can build Windows Forms applications, ASP.NET based web applications, and command-line applications. This tool can be obtained separately from several other products (such as Microsoft Visual C++, Visual C#, or Visual J#), or can also be obtained in an integrated manner in Microsoft Visual Studio .NET. Visual Basic .NET language itself adheres to the paradigm of object-oriented programming languages ​​which can be seen as an evolution of an earlier version of Microsoft Visual Basic that is implemented on the .NET Framework. The launch caused controversy, given the many changes made by Microsoft, and the new version is not compatible with the previous version.

Whether Visual Basic .NET is considered a Visual Basic version or truly a different language is a hot topic of debate. This is because the syntax of the Visual Basic .NET language does not undergo very drastic changes, and only adds some support for new features such as structured exception handling and short-circuit expressions. Two changes to the data type also occur when moving to Visual Basic .NET. Compared to Visual Basic 6.0, the data type Integer that is owned by Visual Basic .NET has a length twice as long, from 16 bits to 32 bits. In addition, the data type Long also both change to be twice as long, from 32 bits to 64 bits. 16-bit integers in Visual Basic .NET are called Short. After all, the Windows Forms GUI designer contained in Visual Studio .NET or Visual Basic .NET has a style that is very similar to the classic Visual Basic form editor.
