Visual Basic: Navigate the .NET Framework and Your Projects with "My"

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

The next version of Visual Basic, Visual Basic 2005, will include some powerful new features. One of the most interesting is the My language extensions: My.Application, My.Computer, My.Forms, My.Resources, My.Settings, My.User, and My.WebServices. The My language extensions take the idea of helper functions to a whole new level because they include so much functionality out of the box. Called "a speed-dial for the .NET Framework" by the author, the My extensions are a feature you won't want to overlook.
