Getting started with VB.Net?

Any examples of basic getting started code in VB.Net? I can translate C# code for the controllers to VB.Net via one of the many translators out there. The view code is another thing all together.

Here's the code I'm trying to translate:

.Column( column => {
column.Add(c => c.OrderID).HeaderText("Order ID");
column.Add(c => c.CustomerID).HeaderText("Customer ID");
column.Add(c => c.EmployeeID).HeaderText("Employee ID");
column.Add(c => c.OrderDate).HeaderText("Order Date").Format("{OrderDate:dd/mm/yyyy}");
column.Add(c => c.Freight).HeaderText("Freight");

I've managed to make some head way. I ended up translating the code into this:

<%= Html.Grid(Of MvcSampleApplication.Order)("FlatGrid") _
.Datasource(Model) _
.EnablePaging() _
.EnableSorting() _
.Column(Function(columns) {
columns.Add(Function(c) c.OrderID).HeaderText("Order ID"),
columns.Add(Function(c) c.CustomerID).HeaderText("Customer ID"),
columns.Add(Function(c) c.EmployeeID).HeaderText("Employee ID"),
columns.Add(Function(c) c.OrderDate).HeaderText("Order Date").Format("{OrderDate:dd/mm/yyyy}"),
columns.Add(Function(c) c.Freight).HeaderText("Freight")})

Now I've got something grid-like being displayed but it is far from what the example looks like. See attached image. Is this a control registration issue?

Hi Greg Clouston,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

Please refer the below view code snippets for Grid in VB.

<% 'Define the grid and enable the require features like paging and sorting
Dim gridbuilder = Html.Grid(Of MvcApplication3.employee)("Grid1").Datasource(Model).EnablePaging().EnableSorting()

'add grid columns using gridbuilder
gridbuilder.Column(Function(cols) cols.Add(Of Integer)(Function(c As MvcApplication3.employee) c.emp_id).HeaderText("Employee ID"))
gridbuilder.Column(Function(cols) cols.Add(Of String)(Function(c As MvcApplication3.employee) c.fname).HeaderText("Employee Name"))
gridbuilder.Column(Function(cols) cols.Add(Of Integer)(Function(c As MvcApplication3.employee) c.job_id).HeaderText("Job Id"))
gridbuilder.Column(Function(cols) cols.Add(Of Date)(Function(c As MvcApplication3.employee) c.hire_date).HeaderText("Hire Date"))

'Render the grid by using Render()

Refer the below code snippets for controller.

Function Index() As ActionResult
Dim northwind As PUBSEntities3 = New PUBSEntities3

Return View(northwind.employees)
Return View()
End Function

Function Index(ByVal args As PagingParams) As ActionResult

Dim northwind As PUBSEntities3 = New PUBSEntities3

Dim data As IEnumerable = Nothing
data = northwind.employees
Return data.GridActions(Of employee)()
End Function

Please let us know if you have any queries.
