  • build control in vb.net 2005

    hello, i have a question. Does anyone have a small example of how to build a control in vb.net 2005? i have found examples in vb.net 2003 on google, but not anything special for 2005.
    What i want to build is a control that will give me some values. for example: lets say i use a control called "mycontrol" So when i take mycontrol.value1 it will return 5 , when i want mycontrol.value2 it will return 232 and so on.
    Is this possible? I know it looks more like a function than a control but i wanna use it as a control. Please let me know. thanks

    How about not using VB? I'm sorry, that was uncalled for. I normally have enlightening unbiased replys. Not this time though. VB sucks, learn a real programming language.

      thanx for your comments but i need to do it on vb.net 2005. i have done the whole project in that and i am not planning to learn another language cause vb sucks. i have a little time to work on my hobbie stuff and vb is covering good enough.

          not sure, but when i found some examples online, vb2003 has a selection at the beginning where you can make a new control /library, but vbnet2005 does not. so i started it as a class but it did not work..

            2003 and 2005 framework libraries are relatively the same, there really shouldn't be any difference in the code, with the exception that the templates use partial classes.

              Have a look at the Microsoft website under visual studio 2005. There are a lot of tutorials to be found if you take the time to look. I've been using visual studio 2005 beta 2 to do some web development, and most of the work now is just drag and drop. How are you .Net skills?

                  Why a control and not a class? If you ABSOLUTELY need these values on a control then just create a property in the control.

                  Code:
                        Public Property TheProperty(tst as integer) as integer
                               Get
                                       Return value
                               Set (tst as integer)
                                     value = tst
                        end Property
                  Progress [I will seriously never be done!]

                    Oh yea, VB is a real programming language if you don't use it then don't comment on it. In the past VB was a "hobbiest language" now its very powerful. I'm so sick of poeple being stuck in thier safe little C/C++ bubbles, thinking no programming language can beat it. Here's a word of advice: .Net 2005 changes that my friend so jump on the bus or be one of the few left behind.... Learn to like vb or c# (afterall they created C# for you guys in the bubble to be able to easily migrate over to a VB like, managed, language)

                        Interesting battle here. Well, I originally learned to program in C++. I thought it was so robust, which it definately is. Recently I took a VB course and I'm amazed with how easy it is to use. I prefer it over C++ now, it's so easy to use, I don't spend 75% of my time looking up how to code each include or whatever like I had to all the time in C++.

                        So from someone that has used both, I've actually got a frontend made in VB in about 2 days that works pretty well. It would have taken a couple weeks to get to that point in C++. If you haven't tried VB, I recommend it.

                                end Property
                          thanks for the advice, so lets say this property "TheProperty" aas you called it has more values then how do i do it? for example i want to have TheProperty.value1, TheProperty.value2, TheProperty.value3 and so on how would i do it? And last thing, do i just do it on vb2005 as a new form or as a class and then build it? the outcome would be a dll i imagine. thanks again

                            Umm... Not everyone likes to program in languages owned by a giant corporation. You sort of immediately isolate yourself and restrict your experience when you do that.

                              who cares who owns the language???? jeez... that's like saying using a windowing toolkit is bad because it "isolates" you to that framework. if someone is using Cocoa, .NET, or Java they are obviously not worried about "isolating" themselves, right? if it were up to you we'd all be using ANSI C making ASCII frontends.
