I want to thank Dave for the great C#/VB.NET Convertor tool that his company (Tangible Software Solutions Inc.) owns!
This tool comes in two flavours:
1- Instant VB
2- Instant CSharp
You can convert your code from C# to VB.NET or from VB.NET to C# in both .NET Framework 1.1/2.0.
Here is a screenshot of that wonderful utility, which is very robust and gives really good results!
As you can see, you can convert your code by specifying, the Project Name, a Snippet, a Folder, and ASP.NET Script. So many options, to make converting your code a matter of few seconds only!!
I recommend you visit the website and download those two software:
Thank you Dave for the wonderful tools!

A new Event in ADO.NET 2.0 has been addeed to the SqlCommand object called the *StatementCompleted* event.
Usually, if you are executing a set of UPDATE statements on your database as a batch using ExecuteNoneQuery() method, you get the number of affected rows in the whole batch action. What if you wanted to know what each UPDATE method has returned from *Rows Affected*?
The answer is this new Event. Check it on MSDN to see how powerful it is! SqlCommand.StatementCompleted Event
Hope this helps,
