A while ago we decided at work to use VB.net as main language for our RPi-experiments. (Because we are a PLC-programmers and not that familiar with high level PC coding like C# etc.)
But we now having a lot of struggles to write applications in VB for the Win 10 IoT platform. Simple basic lines like
just wont work (VS 2017 doesn't accept that line).
Code: Select all
Button.BackColor = Color.White
We start thinking that the use of a blank app is the result of this. However we need the use of a blank app in order to get things deployed to Win 10 IoT.
Now the question: Does anyone else have experience with VB.net for Win 10 IoT projects? And how do you work?
I know, we need to step away from VB.net and start using C# but I have to convince more people at my work to change this decision. So in the meantime I keep trying to get my projects working in VB.net.
