Where would you use Visual Basic over Visual C++?
Well, personally, I’d almost always use VB over VC++ for a few reasons:
- Ease of use – it’s much easier to get an application up and running in VB than in VC++.
- 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++.
- 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.
