Visual Basic For The Web?

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have heard that you can use Visual Basic to create websites and I have found controls for the web inside of my VB 2005 Express Edition, and I am curious as to how I would use these and create applications for websites? I know there is ASP.NET, but how is VB.NET used on the web? I do know PHP is superior and I use PHP, this is just something I am curious about and wish to try out. Does anybody know where I can find information on this?

Just google for ASP.Net and Visual Basic tutorials. I personally hate the syntax of Visual Basic so I went with ASP.Net and C#. Basically you can combine ASP.Net Controls and what ever else you have available to you (VB or C# and what ever else is there) to build your web applications. Remember though the controls are only there to help you develop faster and all code generated in its final form is just plain HTML. All your logic code is either in VB.net or C# and they link to the controls etc.

Depending on what you want to work with look up tutorials on that.

I have the vb.net standard edition and you
have to do any asp.net coding right on the web
server.
Microsoft issued a handy little application called
the web matrix that has a web server built right into it
that you can use right on your desktop.

You can use vb or c# with it.

Ah I wish I knew a good useful language like you guys.All that matters to me are the web pages that I make, and use, both work and are functional. And of course, if it serves a good use to me.I would think that there is a way to plugin almost any language into a website.

Well, there are a few languages you can't...like C and C++.

Visual Basic for the web? Yes that exists :P

You can make web applications in Visual Basic with help of ASP.NET. This is Microsoft's powerful web application framework for web development.

It contains two programming languages: Visual Basic and C#.

You can build dynamic web sites, web applications and web services with it. Here are some useful sites with ASP.NET Tutorials for you :P

Enjoy in developing web app! :P

Hi!

The Microsoft .NET platform unifies developers of all kinds - Windows Forms developers, Web Form developers, C# developers and even Visual Basic developers.

If you want to develop a web application, you are pretty limited to Visual Basic and C# for the front-end development. If you choose to go with the Express Edition, you would have to download Visual Web Developer. The Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition IDE only enables you to create Windows applications. Don't un-install it just yet, because you can use Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition to create class libraries (DLLs) and use them from within an ASP.NET application.

While you are trying out ASP.NET, why don't you use the newer 2008 IDE? (Visual Web Developer 2008 and Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition)? It's got support for newer features, such as LINQ (Language Integrated Query) and implicit properties.

Regards,
Nitin
