Visual Basic

This page contains a number of useful hints-and-tips for programmers of Visual Basic. This section is fairly empty at the moment, but please bear with me as I'll be adding more content here in the future.

I won't claim that any of these items are revolutionary or will make your programming life suddenly a hundred times easier, but hopefully they will make you think and will maybe provide better ways of solving problems than your current solutions.
