Creating A Class That Can Be Compared To A String In A Switch Statement?

Jan 13, 2012

Is it possible to create a class in VB.NET that can be compared to a string in a switch statement? For example, let's say I have a class Foo:

Public Class Foo
Public Bar As String = "test"
End Class

Is it possible to implement some interface or override some equality operator so that I could use Foo like so?

Dim foo As New Foo()
Select Case "test"
Case foo
' It worked!
End Select


C# Switch Statement More Limited Than .net 'case'?

May 4, 2011

I was reading an interesting article here and it made an interesting point about the 'case' statement in vs the 'switch' statement in C#, which I've pasted below:The following Visual Basic Select Case statement can't be represented in C# with a single switch statement:

Dim Condition As Integer = 55
Select Case Condition
Case 1, 3 To 5, 10, 12, 14, Is > 50


I've always found the switch statement in C#, with dropthrough and consequentrequirements for a break in each case, to be a bit unwieldy. Is there any reason they haven't enhanced the switch command to allow these situations? W

EDIT AFTER CLOSE: I'm surprised this was closed, really. With the number of extension methods and helper classes I've found online for other things, I thought an enhanced 'case' would be a good chance. I somewhat hoped a luminary such as Jon Skeet may have commented on the background reasoning, rather than the individuals below who've obviously thought 'religious debate' as soon as more than one language is mentioned.

Hash Table Versus Switch Statement?

Sep 8, 2009

I have about 100 strings that depend on an integer value. There is potential for the list to grow to 255. What is the faster/preferred method of assigning the string based on the passed integer, a hash table or a switch statement. I googled around and can't seem to find anything that compares the speed of the hash table lookup vs. the speed of the switch statement. Is there an easy way I could measure the speed myself or any links to articles describing the performace of each method?

Why won't it evaluate that rblOne.SelectedItem.Value = "No" !?!?!? I tried rblOne.SelectedValue, that doesn't work, AND I added .ToString to both, which did not help, I even tried it w/ "No".ToString...this doesn't make any sense.

Say I have this in VB.NET:

If myVariable is "a", control will go into the first case statement. Now let's say if myVariable = "a", but inside a's case block, I find that executeB is true, is it then possible to jump to the second case?

Dynamically Creating Labels In An If...then Statement?

Oct 20, 2011

This may be simple, but im having a tough go at it. I'm trying to make a "review" section in a step through form, where the user can see everything that has been entered and if they choose go back and "edit" that information again. One section only has to show the information that has been added by the user, basically if they don't select a certain checkbox there is no reason to display the info for that box.I want to to dynamically create labels in a Panel (Panel7) on a TabPage (TabPage3), only for the checkbox information that was selected. This is what I have right now, and I am unable to see anything on the page, I have also tried without the panel and straight onto the tabpage itself to no avail.

MsgBox(CurPat, MsgBoxStyle.Critical)
If (CurPat = "True") Then
Dim lblTemp As New Label

I am trying to insert into a DB with has the following columns:

Creating A Condition - IF Statement Which Is Checking Each Row In The Data Table

May 4, 2011

I have a IF statement which is checking each row in the data table (for a match) and ELSE statement with commands which are executed if the If statement is not satisfied. Now I would like to write like so that it goes to the Else part BUT ONLY for values which are not satisfied in the IF statement. If I am more specific; I would like to calculate values if a match is found and just print them if it is not fond (usually there are both cases). Now the problem is the bold text; if there is a match found I don't want it processed BUT if the match is found I do. How can I write that?

Creating VB Code To Increment The Number Of Fields In An SQL Create Table Statement

May 8, 2012

I have an SQL statement which i need to code in vb:


Notice the fields prodno1 and prodno2 in the table structure.. this is part of a number of sql statements i need to run and put inside a loop. my problem is i want to automatically use this same code such that on the next loop, this sql statement is going to be:


Note that in this "2nd loop"

- the table name is now r3 from r2 in the first SQL statement
- there are now prodno1, prodno2 and prodno3 instead of just prodno1 and prodno2
- in the WHERE clause, the p.prodNo becomes p.prodNo2

And so on and so forth.. so for the 3rd loop

- there's going to be r4
- there's going to be prodno4
- in the WHERE clause i will use p.prodNo3

C# IntelliSense Delayed Compared To .NET?

Jun 6, 2010

In VB.NET projects, errors are highlighted immediately after cursor leaves the line. In C#, I have to wait several seconds for IntelliSense to highlight it. Also, the C# version doesn't show all project errors in "Errors List", unless you start to build it. Actually, it seems to work differently in every way. Is it possible to adjust that behavior?

I am using both Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010.

Is .NET Weakly Typed Compared To C#

Apr 15, 2011

Yesterday I was at an interview where my interviewer (who admittedly didn't claim to be an expert on the subject) stated that "VB.NET is more weakly typed then C#" - (At the same time he couldn't recall an example). This statement seemed incorrect to me (particularly given that both languages use the same framework libraries for their types) and I advised as such and that perhaps he was confused with the option to turn Option Strict or Option Infer on/off.

At the same time I know that VB.NET has situations where it will do type coercion - leading to occasionally unexpected results (although I also cant recall under what conditions) - (Actually I think I just remembered that it was mainly when performing arithmetic operations with different types - whereas other languages will force you to be explicit (?) ).

Python Use In VB .Net As Compared To Excel?

VS - Why Is IntelliSense Support For C# Lacking When Compared

Jul 4, 2009

However, for several years now, I have been working primarily in the .Net space. Initially, my transition into the .Net world consisted of writing and maintaining VB.Net code. VS provided almost all of the nice intellisense support I came to expect after years of working with the Eclipse/Java combo. Eventually my employer decided to do new development in C#. My initial impression of the intellisense support for C# was less than stellar. At times it seems as if VS has no background compiler for C#, but occasionally it does something smart, indicating there is some background processing there, but not quite enough to really boost productivity in meaningful ways. Is there any sane technical reason for this discrepancy regarding intellisense support between the two languages?

Working with VB08 3.5 Framework so parallel isn't going to work sadly, what other methods are there from a code standpoint could I use? DUring the conversion process could it be using parts of code that bog the system down?

Object Casting - TryCast Statement And Base Class

Jun 17, 2009

Here is a test program I wrote to explore a facet of object casting ...
Module Module1
Sub Main()
Dim class1 As MyBaseClass = New MyBaseClass()
Dim class2 As MyInheritedClass = New MyInheritedClass()
Dim class3 As MyBaseClass = Nothing
[Code] .....
The problem comes with the TryCast statement on class3. My intention is that class3 remains as a baseclass, but when the TryCast is applied, class3 morphs itself into an Inherited class which is not what I wanted. So is there a gap in my OOP/VB.NET knowledge and this action is legitimate or should class3 still be regarded as a base class?

Creating A Dice Class

May 24, 2010

I'm working on the code I used to make the animated dice program in my sig. I've done a bit of modding on it so I can re-use parts and it still worked fine, until I tried to put everything in a class so that I could just create new instances of a certain die.

I was heading towards the idea of creating a new instance of the die by a number in a textbox on the main form. Right now I am just working on the basic d6 just to get it up and running.

QuoteAn error occurred creating the form. See Exception.InnerException for details. The error is: The form referred to itself during construction from a default instance, which led to infinite recursion. Within the Form's constructor refer to the form using 'Me.'

I am probably going about this the wrong way all together and could use some help because I can't see how the class is referring to itself at all.


doesn't look much better in the original program, but it actually works in that so if it helps just click the link in my sig to go to the post with the original download.

Since I am going to want all the various dice to Rotate() and Move(), I am wanting these to be generic so that I can use them no matter which die is trying to access it which is why I have tried putting them separately in their own subs and just passing the picture ByVal. I'm not sure if, or how, to put these in classes of their own or not.

And I have looked at just about every dice roller and Yahtzee example I can find, but none of them actually try to rotate the dice like I have, and they pretty much just calculate by using simple random values...which is okay, but does squat when the values are actual objects instead of numbers (if that makes sense).

Nothing I can find tries to put this stuff in classes, which makes it even harder to determine what really should go in the class files themselves. I really just can't find an example that I have been able to get to work for my purpose, nor figure this out on my own.

Creating A List In A VBA Class

Nov 18, 2011

I would like to know how I can get the list of possible choices to Intellisense for my class object, like it does with MsgBox.For example, when creating a message box you type MsgBox "Test Message Text", vbYesNo, "Test Message Title".In typing that, when you type the comma just before the vbYesNo, it gives you the possible selections for button types in a drop down list: i.e., vbYesNo, vbOKOnly, etc.I have a class called clsKeyState. what it does is turn on/off/toggle key states, such as CAPS LOCK, SCROLL LOCK, NUM LOCK, etc... I have set my property for it as Get/Let "State". When I call it to set a key to on/off I will be doing it like this: KeyState.State WhichKey, On/Off/Toggle.I would like the WhichKey part to automatically display all the possible selections that I define, such as CapsLock, NumLock, Scroll Lock; and I want the On/Off/Toggle to display those specific items also (On, Off, Toggle). I will be using the ability to create these displayable options for many more things in my project than just this one simple class.
