This simple demonstration shows the flexibly of .NET. GHI's Glide library is a free graphics interface written in C#. @jasuk70 is using the controls in glide to create a simple game that is then programmed in VB (Visual Basic). The main reason for this code share is a distinct lack of examples … read more
