BlackBox Posted October 31, 2012 Share Posted October 31, 2012 As very little of these coding languages overlap in any form other than basic Object Oriented concepts, I'd like to request that VBA be broken out into it's own forum, separate from that of a potential .NET forum. For that matter, it seems logical to me (perhaps others disagree?), to reorganize the development forums based on the API for which they interact. It makes sense to keep AutoLISP & Visual LISP together as they are both based on the same API (mostly), and are drawing level languages. VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) has some API overlap with that of Visual LISP given the ActiveX API functionality that is exposed, but VBA is still very much different from that of Visual LISP syntactically, and also in that it (VBA) offers form work far beyond that of DCL for LISP. The .NET API with it's managed code, deserves a place where it's C#, F#, and VB, etc. brethren alike may Cast, Derive, and Inherit until, and their hearts are content. ObjectARX (C++ for AutoCAD), also should be split out, as it is very different from that of the .NET API even, with it's version dependencies, Hard and Soft Pointers, ability to work in mixed-mode (managed/unmanaged) code that can use the managed or native C++ ObjectARX API.
