I've been wondering, what's going to happend next year when .net 4.0 is out?
I mean, for instance WPK as it is shown right now must work against WPF 3.5 (or .net 3.5/2.0). How is it going to coexist with 4.0? PS2.0 is going to get stuck to .net3.5 until next version or is it going to be recompiled against 4.0.
BTW, congrats, keep up the uber cool stuff coming to PS2.0!!
Well sure I have. it's a LOB application for my own business. It's a healthcare application focused on teleradiology, WinForms writen in C# and deployed with ClickOnce. The audio part is meant for radiologist so they can make dictations and then transcriptionist
can hear them and make a report out of them. For upcoming versions I'm planning to add imaging capabilities based on DeepZoom for bandwidth constrained scenarios.
It uses SSH as secure transport for both business logic and file transfer between the clients (4 at this time, 2 more waiting, up to 15 users) and the server in the headquarters.
You can write a few shim methods for that especific duties with C# (it can handle pointer arithmetics) or even C++ .NET if you need more hardcore stuff (which I doubt you do with VB5/6), while reusing the rest of the code in VB.NET seamlessly. Also taking
a look to the System.Runtime.Marshalling, class is very usesful when dealing with allocations you metion or memory allocated somewhere else.
Perhaps a if you can give I little example of the things you intend to do, I can help you more (although experienced, not that I am a guru by any strech of the imagination)
Also I think that you are more affected by the fact that .net framework is type safe, and that VB inherited some of that on its pass to the framework. And thats a good thing. The fact that you have stabilized your product doesn't means that type unsafety
is a good thing.
Awesome! Of course no where near the "polishness" or completeness of your work but recentley I implemented a class to follow up the progress of worker threads that fits perfectly pattern of the IObserver interface.
It's nice to see how my device is validated by your work or that I can now say I've used things with fancy names: "hey! I've used reacting programing"
