At this point, the two languages are practically identical except for syntax. You sometimes get one MS language team offering a feature in their language and then the other team offers a similar feature in the other language's next release, so they're not always exactly the same, but they can do pretty much the about same things. (I do a lot of programming with both VB and C# and often convert examples from one language to the other and it's rarely difficult.)

There are still a few differences in where you can use them. For example, Windows Phone 7 programming has been available in C# but not VB, but that has changed recently. Microsoft tries to minimize that sort of thing.

As for ASP.NET in particular, again I don't think there's a big difference. (Although I haven't done ASP.NET lately.)

I would just use:
  • The one you feel more comfortable with, or
  • The one your programming team is using, or
  • The one you want to learn more, or
  • The one you want to add to your resume

I think it's more a matter of personal taste that technical merit.

I think the information you need is the first hint and the final step on page 53. Double-click a ScrollBar to open an event handler for its Scroll event. Then add code as shown in the hint to display the text when the user scrolls the ScrollBar.

(Although note that some controls were renamed at the last minute and I think that's the case here. At the bottom of the page it says hscrRed but I think the control's final name was redHScrollBar. Use whatever name the control actually has in the project.)
