Re: Are there docs on learning VB.net for acad?

"VBA.NET" is called VSTA (Visual Studio Tools for Applications) and was
announced at last week's PDC. See
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/extend/vsta/default.aspx

I have never liked the com object model because of the lack of utility
functions like GrDraw, GrVecs and GrRead.
I am hoping the .net api will allow me to mimic the things I used to do with
these...

Its interesting that VBA still uses old VB but .net is the current "outside"
acad language.
Wonder if we might see VBA.net sometime, or if that even makes sense...

unsupported by Microsoft. VB.NET is VB and has been for the last several
years. Do not get confused with this. I think what most people are talking
about is whether to learn the COM.Interop or the new .NET API which was
released for 2006. They both work very well, separately or together.
