adding a C# dll to a VB .Net app

P: n/a
Hi gurus,

A contractor has built us a database application in VB dotNet. But he
has included a DLL which was written in C# to provide a VirtualListView
control. The source of the C# project is included in the soluiton. I
want to fix some bugs in the VB app, but I've only got VB dotNet 2003
so I can't build the C# project.

Is there any way I can reference the DLL for the C# DLL without having
to build it?
Thanks

You should just be able to reference the compiled dll in the add
reference dialog.

You could convert the C# project to VB.NET.

As Tom mentioned, just referencing the existing dll is probably a better
solution, but if you want the flexibility of being able to modify it in your
preferred language then conversion is a good option.
