Difference between vb arraylist and c# arraylist RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a difference  between the arraylist in visual basic and arraylist in C#? 

    I had to convert some C# code to VB and there is a call I make in a third party api that requires me to pass in an arraylist.  When I do this in C# it works just fine, but when I do this in VB, I just get back a vaque exception from the api.  Any ideas?

  • Hi Beto363,

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN Forum.

    This is a specialty forum for Visual Studio Tools for Office issue. I would recommend you post your in C# forum or VB.NET forum for better support.

    Have a good day,

  • What is the exception, and what is your code in C# and the converted VB.Net code? Could you please share here? Otherwise, it likes a puzzle. Thanks.

  • There is not any difference the arraylist is a part of .Net, not from C# or VB. It is still the same since Framework beta 0.n

    As this question requires code which you can show (you probably do something wrong) is this more a VB then a C# question.

    There is likely somebody in that forum who can answer your problem in 5 minutes in that forum if you show your code.

  • My code is extremely simple. 

    Dim thirdPartyApi As New ThirdPartyApi()
    Dim arrListEntryId As New ArrayList()

    This exact same code works just fine in C#.  The only thing i could think of is that there is some non apparent difference in the ArrayList object in vb from C#.

  • It's the same class, it's just being called from a different language.

  • The code converted to VB.Net should work, so I think the problem is caused in the ThirdPartyApi.ApiCall method, could you please tell us the exception you get and what is this ApiCall method code?

    Please add Try ... Catch .. to check if there is one exception in your code.
