Selecting Visual Basic vs. Visual C++

Selecting Visual Basic vs. Visual C++

Question:
Where would you use Visual Basic over Visual C++?

Answer:
Well, personally, I’d almost always use VB over VC++ for a few reasons:

  1. Ease of use – it’s much easier to get an application up and running in VB than in VC++.
  2. Better support/third party products – you can get a custom control for just about anything, and most of them focus specifically on VB and not VC++.
  3. Data access is much easier to do in VB than in VC++. The few places I wouldn’t use VB would be for something that needed to be super high performance (games, drivers, DLLs), since VB is not high performance yet.
