As is always the case in a major release, there are a number of smaller features that don’t get very publicized because they’re not as big or sexy as the major features. One that someone asked me about privately in email was partial methods. VB will support them in pretty much the same way that C# does. In fact, rather than writing a big, long entry about it, you could just check out Scott Wisniewski’s excellent entry on them. You can also check out Wes Dyer’s excellent entry on them for C#.
How’s that for lazy?
Updated 05/30/2007: Somehow I’d missed the fact that one of our own wrote a whole entry on them on the VB blog! Eek! My apologies to Scott for missing his entry and check it out!
On the whole, I prefer Scott Wisniewski’s earlier post on Partial Methods in the VBTeam’s blog(http://blogs.msdn.com/vbteam/archive/2007/03/27/partial-methods.aspx and referenced in http://oakleafblog.blogspot.com/2007/03/beth-massi-joins-microsoft-to-increase.html)/
