Difference between VB 6 and VB.Net

  •     Runtime Environment of the two versions are different. VB 6 used the VB-Runtime. VB.Net used the .Net Common Language Runtime (.Net CLR).


  •     In terms of object oriented support, VB.Net is much enhanced.


  •     VB.Net uses ASP.NET in creating web applications while VB 6 used ASP.


  •     VB 6 used standard library compared to .NET independent class library along with enhanced VB library of VB.Net


  •     Other features of VB.Net is you can use reflections to read the meta-data. It can also generate code to define and invoke types of runtime.


  •     VB.Net has Try…Catch… syntax to handle exceptions at runtime while VB 6 used 'On Error Goto'


  •     VB.Net has no hidden code from the developer, means you can access and control your application.


  •     VB.Net is a compiled language, VB 6 is interpreter based language.

If you are wondering about the difference between VB or Visual Basic and VB.NET, here they are. Visual Basic, the classic version, is no longer actively maintained and it is the predecessor of VB.NET. VB.NET or Visual Basic.NET is a modern, object-oriented language. Visual Basic retains its name until version 6. But when version 7 was released which was released together with .NET 1.0, they change its name to VB.NET.

VB.NET is one of the many language tools supported within the bigger Visual Studio .NET suite and is based on a newer programming model than Visual Basic 6. The Visual Basic Classic IDE is no longer supported as of April 8, 2008. Visual Basic 6 was an interpreter-based language while VB.NET is a compiled language. Visual Basic 6 is non-object-oriented principle based language.

VB.NET, on the other hand, which looks similar to the old Visual Basic 6 from a coding style perspective, has more power because it sits on the .NET platform. In Visual Basic 6, data handling begins with DAO protocol then RDO and then followed by ADO (ActiveX Data Objects). With VB.NET, data is handled using ADO.NET.
