"with blocks" in c#

Hi

I'm a VB6 developer attempting to learn C# ....and I've stumbled at the
first hurdle of how to use with blocks.

I'm used to writing:

Dim o as someObject

with o.mainProperty
.subProperty1 = "a"
.subProperty2 = "b"
end with

and I can't even figure that out in c#.

Hi Griff,

Unfortunately there is nothing like that in C#. You'll have to address each
property individually.

someObject o = new someObject();
o.subproperty1 = "a";
o.subproperty2 = "b";

Hi Griff,
there is no such statement in C#. See the reasons for this:

Hi I have read some mail on the dev mailing list about PEP 318 and find the new Syntax really ugly. def foo(x, y): pass I call this foo(1, 2), this isn't really intuitive to me! Also I don't like the brackets.

I have only a cursory knowledge of Microsoft's Application Blocks, which seem like they might be pretty cool. I'm wondering if any of these (such as the Exception Handling Application Block) can be considered related to Aspect Orientated Programming (AOP)?
