Forms, SubForms and Continuous forms

I am very new to VB.Net. My experience is with MS ACCESS. I would consider
myself an expert at MS ACCESS. This is my first VB project

How is the Form/subform done in VB. net?

For example I have a form for the user to fill out and I would like the user
to be able to select Multiple categories. The user information will be
stored in one table and the selected categories will be stored in a
different table (on to many relationship).

On that same note, How would you represent a continuous form in vb.net?

There is no equivalent in .NET to the SubForm in Microsoft Access that I am aware of.

Below is an example which was developed in C#:

I come from the Access environment where all the windows form handles were hidden so pardon my question. In Access I could make "continuous" subforms and there was a subform "container" object I could place on a form and then reference the subform and easily link the two together with a master/child link. The mastery of just how it worked was hidden from the average user. I have the dataset side working fine with multiple

I am having difficulty in adding a subform into my existing form, I have designed very simply databases in the past & this is my first attempt at compiling subforms - with little success I may add. In a nutshell I have multiple variable data (defects) which occur on one product, on one day etc. etc.. Can anyone advise of any literature that may be of use. look forward to your replies.

I have a lot of respect for David Fenton and Allen Browne, but I don't understand why people who know how to write code to completely replace a front end do not write something that will automate the code that implements managing unbound controls on forms given the superior performance of unbound controls in a client/server environment. I can easily understand a newbie using bound controls or someone with a tight deadline. I guess I need...

I am currently working on a database, in 3rd normal form, which is for candidates who apply for a job with the law firm that I workd for. My issue is with good form design. I have a main form. Then I have 3 pages on a tab control ( 4 if the type of candidate validates that is is to be shown) Each page has a subform. The subforms can be either single or continuous, I think I am still deciding what I want to lock down this entry...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
