Case Sensitivity (Cross Ref > Operators)

By Mike Prestwood

VB Classic versus C++/CLI: A side by side comparison between VB Classic and C++/CLI.

 
Language Basics
 

Language basics is kind of a catch all for absolute beginner stuff. The items (common names) I chose for language basics is a bit random and include items like case sensitivity, commenting, declaring variables, etc.

Case Sensitivity

[Other Languages] 

Languages Focus

Case sensitiviy in this case is referring to commands and variable names. For example, are "printf" and "PrintF" equivalent? Are fullname and FullName equivalent? When you create commands, operations, methods, or variables should you worry about case?

VB Classic:   No

VB Classic is not case sensitive. If you type any other case for commands or variables, VB Classicwill change it to the "accepted" or "defined" case. For example, if you type msgbox it is converted to MsgBox.

Syntax Example:

The following code works:

MsgBox ("hello")
C++/CLI:   Yes

Same as standard C++. Both are case sensitive. In C and C++ commands and variable names are case sensitive.

Syntax Example:

The following first C++/CLI snippet works:

MessageBox::Show("Hello");
 
messagebox::SHOW("Hello"); //>>>Does not work!
