Build Solution vs. ReBuild Solution

P: n/a
I have not been able to see any difference between what happens when I use
Build>Build Solution or Build>ReBuild Solution.
Is there any reason to use one or the other at any time?
Thanx......joisey

Build is incremental. it will recompile the bits that have changed, and in a
multi-project solution will rebuild only projects affected by the most
recent change.

Rebuild however does a complete recompile of whatever you select.

Hope that helps (and I got it the right way round)

In VB.NET 2002, there is no difference because incremental build isn't
implemented for this version. VB.NET 2003 AFAIK includes the incremental
build feature.
