If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask them here :-).

General information about VB.NET can be found here:

For beginners' tasks, VB at the Movies may be helpful:

Quickstarts on various topics of the .NET Framework can be found here:

For VB6 programmers, there are separate documents about the switch to
VB.NET:

Jack,
help me getting started with the Microsoft Developement Enviroment.

What do you mean with that, it sound a little bit to the Office Develompment
Environment and not VisualStudio Net, what the visitors/actives in this
newsgroup mostly use?

Hello All,

First of all, thank you for your kind reply's.
I have almost no experience with Vb-6 or .net development tool. Until now i
worked with Xbase++ (Alaska software), but due to bussines decisions i need
to switch to Vb.net. I do know the basics of events, threads and OOP. I just
need someone who can help me getting started. I have the feeling that if i
need to figure out myself, it wil take ages before i become familiar with the
IDE, and the way of programming in .NET.

I would like to design a nTear application using a existing Btrieve datase.
Some of the things i am looking for are:

- Library with all GUI controlls inherited form standard controls, and some
changed behaviour.
- Library with all Bussiness logic.
- Library with data extraction laier
- The user interface wil be first GUI, but later in the project it should
also run as a Internet application.
- Multi language, same app should run in Dutch, English, or French

If someone would like to assist me in a kind of a few "hands-on" sessions, i
am willing to offer a reasonable financial compensation.
Please contact me via ja**@aicn.nl

Thank you.

Jack,

Some advices just hints and only my own opinion

I would like to design a nTear application using a existing Btrieve
datase.
Some of the things i am looking for are:

Free to use are the MS databases MS Access (not the office application only
the database) and MSDE. Those both are limited databases however very good
to learn VBNet. When you intent to use SQL server than start with MSDE
because that is a kind of mini SQLserver.
- Library with all GUI controlls inherited form standard controls, and
some
changed behaviour.
I would not start with that, standard are more than enough controls.
Creating usercontrols in the beginning is mostly playing and cost only tons
of time.

Beside those there are as well some in
http://www.gotdotnet.com/Community/W...f-c111fe60ed58
- Library with all Bussiness logic.
That is a next step, don't start with that. However try quick to learn the
concept of classes and objects. (What you learn by not putting everything in
line as code in your form). Have as well a look at the exception handling
for that. Try to avoid modules and shared classes to help you to learn it
quicker
- Library with data extraction laier
Try it first with the dataset concept which is an extraction from the
database.
- The user interface wil be first GUI, but later in the project it should
also run as a Internet application.
Almost impossible to achieve or you should use webservices. Than you have to
look how to handle your data. When you think about winforms and webpages for
everybody, forget it than, that is for those who readed something, however
they don't understand what is cleverly written.
- Multi language, same app should run in Dutch, English, or French
For the globalization is Net greath (The way numbers and dates are written).
For languages it is not as it could be. Use for the last not the standard
methods (RESX) however an XML file. The most easiest way is than to create a
dataset as file.
If someone would like to assist me in a kind of a few "hands-on" sessions,
i
am willing to offer a reasonable financial compensation.


You can always communicate with this newsgroup, there are a lot of people
(from which are more speaking Dutch) who are wanting to help. (Because there
are people coming here from all over the world, there is a high
understanding what you write, so don't bother to much about your English or
things like that.)

And to start.
Just open your IDE.
do New project select Windows Form Project (enter)
Drag a textbox on that form from the toolbox left (when you don't see it
view toolbox)
Drag a button on that form
Click on that form
Type in the lines where you see Button1_Click event
Textbox1.text = "Hello I am here"

Look at the top of the ide click on Debug and than Start

Your first program is made (or not and than there is an error)

I hope this helps,

Cor
