VB or VB.NET?

also, why are you using Notepad++ and not Visual Studio? There's free editions of pretty much every release of VB and it's insane to develop a GUI-driven language without the GUI builder (I mean, that's the biggest thing VB has going for it!)

The class was for VB, but I had to drop out of school due to an increase in hours at my job, but the instructor preferred using notepad++ over an IDE like visual studio or code blocks and doing all the compiling in the command prompt. The way he talked he hated Visual Studio and was really big on Notepad ++. I didn't like it tho seems like a waste of time to switch to command promp to compile I attended 3 weeks of class and he was frequently having trouble compiling. I'm going the self taught route now and the degree I was going for only had 3 classes in programming and none were in c++ which is my main goal for programming. Thanks for your help everyone! thumb.gif

Sounds like your instructor was an idiot and you're better off out of there.

CLI compiling makes sense for some languages and some environments, but /never/ for VB.
