Help Discussion Page[edit]

Recommendation or request to future contributors to the page and tutorials:

I think tutorials should not require a desktop IDE, but should use one of the online IDEs. In a few minutes of searching, and a dozen links followed, https://ideone.com/ is the only site that provides a 1-button compile-&-run interaction. Simple interactions like this lower the barrier to entry for new & curious learners who can now simply follow a link to run and experiment with some code, rather than having to install the IDE for VB, whereas the VB IDE is only available if you have a Windows box in front of you (and possibly only if you have admin rights). 65.78.131.51 (discuss) 05:04, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

I think a section on VBA should be opened up too very powerful to manipulate MS Word, excel, access and text files. Has most thigns VB6 has (can make basic forms, call MS API etc) See http://sel2in.com/pages/prog/vba/VBA_Date_Time.php and http://sel2in.com/prjs/vba/profile and http://www.google.com/search?site=&q=vba+tutorial , http://www.pinyinjoe.com/pinyin/pinyin_macro_faq.htm for samples - 59.92.201.80 10:15, 12 October 2008 (UTC) Tushar Kapila tgkprog in gmail & yahoo

A pros-and-cons blunder[edit]

A "pro" that shouldn't be here:

  • Is potentially a lot more powerful than the average C or C++ programmer thinks. It all depends on the coder's ability and knowledge.

It's b*llsh*t, and it's a flamebait. First of all: Wikiversity shouldn't mind-read, it's like Roman Catholics mindreading about why Protestants dislike the "infallibility of the Pope". Secondly C and C++ are different: they're not even used for the same kind of applications as Visual Basic. Wikiversity should not be a place for religious wars. rursus 14:32, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

By the way: could anyone explain why (visual basic OR (C AND C++)) is better than (visual basic AND C AND C++)? rursus 14:39, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
