VB.Net Code Snippet:

KB101343

Languages Focus: Case Sensitivity

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.Net Case Sensitivity

VB.Net is not case sensitive. If you type any other case for commands or variables, VB.Net will change it to the accepted or defined case. For example, if you type messagebox.show it is converted to MessageBox.Show.

Syntax Example:

The following code works:

MessageBox.Show("hello")
