I would like to use a VB
.net photo image gallery module on my asp.net website I am starting.
I am not very experienced as yet with VB
.net and I am using Wrox books to help and I know I am far from the stage of creating such a module myself.
So I Googled and found:
A FREE, OPEN SOURCE image gallery available called nGallery the written in ASP.NET and C#. (see ASP.Net Source Projects)
I decided to be brave and try to convert the nGallery application via an on line FREE C# to VB
.net converter, which I found at: http://www.kamalpatel.net/ConvertCSharp2VB.aspx
It converts via copy and paste method one page at a time, the newly converted VB
.net code is created minus the ‘code comments,’ which need to be replaced manually, a small price to pay.
I was doing fine, until the converter found a line or two of code which it could not convert without errors, I have no knowledge of C# and still learning VB
.net so I stopped, for now.
I found a VB
.net equivalent called Media Gallery (http://www.aurigma.com/
) with some extra features but because the C# version is Free I was reluctant to pay $179 price tag.
If anybody has already converted and debugged nGallery successfully or knows where I can find a VB
.net version of nGallery or a less expensive Media Gallery module please let me know.
