    Thank you for your feedback.  I have entered case 119139 to have VB.NET samples included with a future build and I have also included your email address with the list of affected users for this case.  If you have any further questions please feel free to let me know.

    The team has recently been discussing what the best way is to provide VB.NET samples, and I'd like to get your feedback. Would you like to see all samples written in both C# and VB.NET or would it be acceptable in your opinion to have some samples in VB.NET and some in C#? Admittedly we would probably have more in C#, as it seems that is the more popular language of among our customers. Also, you mentioned a "VB.NET version of web viewer". Also someone suggested the idea of using a tool to automatically convert C# projects to VB.NET. If we converted the samples using such a tool which would simply demonstrate exactly the same sample in two different syntaxes would it be good enough? What if we just provided information about how to use such a tool yourself?
    We're considering all of these options to find a good balance of usefulness for our customers and our investment in time, both up front time and ongoing maintenance. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated.

    On a separate note, I noticed you asked for a "VB.NET version of web viewer". Although, the web viewer is written in C#, it should work perfectly fine inside of VB. Are you experiencing some problem with it in VB?
